  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Well finally got a day to start some of the other work I need to do to widen the rear cover. 

1997-2000 did not come with rear inside fenders, but 2001-2003 did. So in 2001 I went and bought rear inside fenders for the Indian. Now with widening the back cover those need widened as well. So I went and got new rear inside fenders from my GM parts dealer buddy so I could start that work.

attached are some photos of that work, as well as a photo of how it has moved the lower rear portion of the cover out.

There are several that bond to plastic, but the plastic needs roughed up (course sanding). I use 3M 05887 because it is flexible. The exhaust opening remains the same as originally done, see photo.

The Jury emblem is almost finished, still need to polish the nooks and crannies, but all in all I think Frosty will be pleased?! 

How have you and your family been? Good I hope!

After lower widening mod. Still need to body work the gap area. Haven’t decided exactly what I’m going to do yet.

spacer.pngWell I finally got a few hours to start the back bumper cover work. First, the area where the cuts were made needed to be contoured to the basic alignment of the original lines of the cover. Then I needed to make an insert piece to fill the large hole and then do the body work.

Right side after cut & reconnected.

Left side after trimmed & blended using heat.

I found this to be a little ironic. The image below to a degree resembles a feather! This is a embossed blemish in the new back bumper cover of the Indian. Which is in the area behind where the rear license plate will sit.🤔

      HOW to all! It's good to Pontiac's are well! The Chief would be proud. I used to be a Camaro guy till they killed it in the third gen, IMO. After I sold my Zs I decided to see what I could do with a fwd. 
      looks like you all have some nice cars, so I hope you don't mind a fwd nosing in.
