Replace Rear Cadillac Script on 93 Deville


Recommended Posts

A trip thru the car wash tore off the Cadillac script on my rear bumper cover.

I searched fleabay and got a china knockoff replacement.  Only cost $7 bucks and free ship.

It seems pretty sturdy and well made. Has adhesive on the back so install is gonna be easy.

S

I am having some paint peeling on the rear bumper cover.  Either gonna get a pint of # 8554 single stage enamel or a BB/CC set up.

MAN! Is  paint gettin $pendy!  $51 bucks for a pint of single stage enamel.

Wont put the script on till I paint the cover.

I wonder how hard it is to remove the whole Left side piece that needs the painting.

Hopefully its easier than to mask off the whole car from overspray if we use the gun.

Or thinkin' single stage enamel in spray cans.  Local supply will put in spray cans.

Figure cost is $27 a can when all said and done.

Pint of single stage is $51 pint.

I have air and exaust fan set up in my garage.

I miss my 2011 Platinum !  (below)  Gotta dig out somepics of my 72 Fleetwood 75 and post.

I might be too picky but I never take my Caddys through the automatic car wash. I strictly hand wash them. No brushes, just sponge and microfiber. 

Those washes might be great for temporary but can be rather harsh to the finish over the long haul

Yea Rock but as you know these harsh NY winters are tough and ya cant just whip out da hose and wash the crud and salt off yer ride.

So a trip thru the local Delta Sonic and watch all those pretty lights flashin' while the crud is cleaned off and the folks who hand wipe it

down it sure looks purdy when they are done!  They have a deal 3 washes for $18 bucks!

Usually my winter rats I dont care if the car wash marks up the paint!  They usually get a 5 minute wand spray if I wanna brave the cold.

The white paint dont show the swirl car wash marks.  The Crimson Pearl on my 2011 or my black Impala rarely got/get the drive thru wash.

Usually they get a hand wash.

They usually sit along with my Goat and Z sleep for the winter or lounge in Fla. for the winter! 

But as you know a clean Caddy is a HAPPY Caddy!

I still havent painted that corner piece yet!

Still have to pull that piece off and sand and prime it.

Found the #8554 single stage on fleabay 52 bucks a pint and free ship.  

Its brand X paint and it will match the factory paint not to mention the pin stripe!

Not worried about the stripe tho as it will just end at the seam.
