G-body, so it will all share from '78-87. Maybe need some special treatment items for the Olds running gear though if you were to use it. Gbodyforum.com is a great place for '78-87 info.on MLK day I was finally able to get back out to where my Elkie is stored to finish up work and I FINALLY GOT SOME STUFF DONE!
With the slightly freezing weather we've had on/off here in Central Tx, I was finally able to get some of the old plain water out of the radiator and a gallon of distilled water and a gallon of anti-freeze into it. Not knowing how long it takes for a block full of plain water to freeze and crack a block, I was getting rather concerned and hoping we wouldn't have a cold spell stretch.
The other thing that I was able to do was to finally get the front clip off the '84 Cutlass Supreme! It's not quite as easy as they make it sound but we got it done. The good news about that is I now have some extra parts to part out from that beast before sending it off to the metal recycler. It has jounce bars, front sway bar, a chrome lower windshield trim piece, a 307 Olds engine, vacuum ball, and a few other things that might be shareable with an elkie.
that's fast! I finally got my title about 4 months ago, after owning the car since 2013, so about 7 years? Working on getting it registered and drivable soon. (which probably means another year or two ...if lucky )Me being the master of procrastination, I finally got a tag and title for the 75. Only took me 2 and a half years after bringing it home.

Here is a mock up of the steering wheel that I think I love. I printed this out on paper to actual size. I then cut out the slots so I can visulize what this wheel will look like mounted on the adapter plate and paddles. It is on order now. This hides most of the paddles. The buttons look nice too. The Momo Jet wheel has a nice thick grip and some CF inserts and button. I plan to use a black annodized bowtie horn button in the CF frame. If it fits. I'm excited to get this all mounted up. But, it has been slow to come together.

The matching color was no accident. I have blue neon in the amp rack too. The cords are another story. I have more, so once I get everything dialed in I will end up putting on new cords that are not frayed. But, I am hopeful that after I remove the column shifter, I may have some more mounting options since the column piece that moves will become fixed.I'm partially OCD about some stuff, so gotta say I'm loving the fact the colors on the radio seem to match up exactly with the dash lighting. Seems like a little thing to most ppl, I guess, but to me it adds a lot to bring everything together. Looks great, but gotta fix those cords lol, that'd drive me crazy.
