GM has discontinued many parts for the 2 door Lumina Including the Rear Glass Seal/Trim. Not Sure what route to take but I gotta get it in there.
If you look at the Pictures the car looks like a 4wd IMO. The Springs are 13 years old and most likely sagging to some degree, so I have purchased some 1.74" Drop Springs. I am hoping with the New Coil Springs the car will sit about 1" lower than where it is now.

wonder if a 2000-2005 monte carlo could be done like your Lumina.only thing i don't like about my monte is FWD.plus it would be a hell of a sleeper,much like that Lumina will be

Awesome! Very cool!

The Rear Glass is in!
The Glass Shop used a Seal for a 92 Cutlass but had to trim the Upper Corners, It Looks Good to me!
Tomorrow Morning it goes to the Frame Shop, I'm Hoping everything goes o.k. and Nothings Majorly Bad.
I dropped the Rear using new Springs, 1.75 Inches. I know that seems like a Hell of a Lot but Considering I could put my Fist in Above the Rear tire....Well the Car Looked like it had Air Shocks! Now it Sits Level.
If weather permits This Weekend and my Tune Happens Saturday like it's supposed to We'll Shoot a Burn Out Video, there's a nice piece of Concrete in front of my Shop.

Thanks for the Reply's!
We had a wet weekend here, Maybe tomorrow for the Video.
Here's Pictures of the car dropped 1.75 Inches front and Rear. I also got the passenger Rear Window in as well as some more window moldings.
Here's some Shots after today's work.
I have about 1.5 Inches Above the Front tires.
Here is the Lexan Cut to Shape and Installed.
I like the DRL's...
Can't wait to do this Window...
More to Come....

I have a question if you would, Where did you get the replacement window strips for around the front and rear windshields?
My z34 project has also become a restore over the past few years..
I have'nt removed mine for fear of not being able to find replacements..
Mine are in good shape but they are very, very hard and I don't think they will hold out rain/weather for many more seasons..
Thanks for any help you can provide.. I love this project!

I used Safeflite for the front, they stock the front windshield. My Rear used a '92 Cutlass they had in stock but the top corners had to be cut for the 90 degrees. He used a Black Silicone to blend the Trim line. The Sides and Bottom look Factory. I seen the Rear Quarter Seals on EPay, they are reuseable though, just be careful with the inside clips when removing the quarter glass.
This Link will get you a phone number for the Front Seal if you just want to buy it. Midwest Auto Parts Inc, Fort Wayne IN
They would have a website but one of them snipers got it and is holding it Hostage for $1600.00
