It's about time a supreme CISO Cadillac Redneck got a little respect around here, this year we will " Give you the business " if you will. As a Redneck aficionado of fine Cadillac's you will be duly inducted into the CISO Cadillac ROTY-A " Hall of Shame " with a new collector's edition and the last of the old collector's edition plaque, you will live with rare company like Mike Jones, " The Johnny " and another Redneck that will never see it coming, Mike will nail him good with a great Redneck video for us. Who might that person be ? Place your bets .........

Too funny, a friend of mine bought a nice 2003 or so Lincoln Continental ,geez ten years back, like a gold color and he had the pseudo vinyl roof installed, when he sold it a few years later he thought he increased the value of the car ! I told him nope, not everyone wants that.

 Many people accessorise with little regard to constraint or taste. They think that the more glitter or "stuff" they put on, the better. These trunk racks were just one part of that.

Mine was a dealer installed option.
 Shortly after I bought the car I removed it to clean it up.
I put silicone on the screws and it stopped leaking but the damage had been done. I've had another lid in my shed for quite some time. After getting rear ended it gave me the incentive to put it on.

Deck racks were more decorative than useful except maybe on little sports cars like MG's that are short on storage space. On large cars I can't recall
ever seeing a deck rack with anything fastened to it. Maybe it was the extra chrome that appealed to some folks, like myself.
BTW, if a deck rack was properly installed it shouldn't leak, mine never did because I used clear silicone along with the gaskets.

My Fleetwood has that luggage rack.
 Drilling holes in the trunk lid makes me cringe and they leak.
Mine has a lot of rust on the inside from water running into the seams. I will be putting a new lid on it this year.

I knew you had the luggage rack, who in the heck uses them anyway ? That's " Super Fly " Cadillac " bling bling ", might as well add the Rolls Royce grille while you are it, how about some landau bars too ?

Kevin you seem well versed in your Cadillac history, I wasn't going to research the paint history so I'll take your word for it. The cars aren't spray painted anymore they are powder coated AFAIK, its all robotics now, the auto workers have it easy these days, they just assemble parts on the cars. Granted they have special workers assembling the exotic Corvette engines and their name gets attached to it.

I don't think they were using acrylic lacquer anymore in 1990, I had a white 1990 ETC and that had BC / CC paint.

Porter

I believe the first Cadillacs with BC/CC were the 1985 C-cars, followed by the 1986 E/K-cars.  Arlington started for the 1991 model year, as it was probably a requirement for the new Caprice.  The 1990 Brougham (D-car) also came standard with an E4MC QuadraJet; 'D' stands for dinosaur.  Smiley
