This book shows you how GM originally made your car watertight and sound proof. It’s a useful resource for keeping your car protected and comfortable today; these cars are old enough that many of the seals need replacing. It’s filled with cutaway illustrations of the body. The manual shows you how to apply sealants (rubber cement, primer, rubber dough, solder, lubricants, and more) to the car; it does NOT focus on adding parts to the car.

You will see illustrated instructions for lubricating hinges and hardware including: door hardware, locks, window regulators, trunk lid hardware, convertible roof rail lock, glove box door hinge, and seat adjusters.
These materials were applied to the body during assembly, so sometimes you will have to remove body parts to get to the places where the sealants go; you may need a body repair manual to show you how to do that for some of the more deeply buried parts.
