  1. I did my own. The front buckets are a little tricky on the top of the seat backs. If my memory is correct. I turned the seat back covers inside out. And worked a little at a time from the top down. I tried attaching the face of the seat cover and then tried to manipulate the back over the seat top the first time. And tore the seam by the chrome strip that runs up the side of the seat just a little. The back seat and bottoms are a piece of cake. I used a pneumatic hog ring tool borrowed from a friend. And ordered seat foam for a early 60's Impala from E-bay to save $. They worked out great. I measured my Riv seats and a friends Impala seat before i bought. And they measure the same. Good advise on a new set of side cutters from a previous post.
  2. Sorry for the proof picture. It was taken a rainy car show by a photographer that was there. But it was the best shot of the rear wheel I had. It is a tight fit. But no rubbing. I can't find a mfg. name on the wheels. I'd bet Truspokes.
  3. I have 15x7 on my car. I had to run 1/4" spacer on the front due to hub and rivets. And a 1" bolt on spacer on the rear to fit over the drum. I don't know the back space. I bought the rims at a swap meet and never measured the back space. Many on here will bitch about the bolt on spacer. I've put 12,000 miles on this set up with no issue.
  4. Here's my exhaust. Hard to tell in 22 seconds. Big improvement over the glass packs I had. It's a Magnaflow cross flow muffler 2 1/4" pipe. Turned down by the bumper.
  5. Sounds like your talking about the voltage regulator to me. They are available at any parts store. Bill
  6. Before you install the motor. Upgrade the in line fuses. The ones Vogel put on mine are for a stereo installation. They need something a little more water tight. I've been in some rain. And the in line fuses he installed corrode and fail to allow the motor to function. I have to take them apart and clean them up to get the connection again.

  8. Chris, I really like the grain pattern of the wood you chose. When it comes to cutting the console pieces. I had a hard time cutting the circles for the screw holes by the shifter. I thought I would drill them out. Well I ruined the piece I spent time cutting out. I had to use a hole punch that I hit with a hammer. As if I were making a bolt hole in gasket material. The veneer I used was paper thin. And I used a thin cardboard slipsheet for a backing material. Good luck. I'm sure it will look great. Bill
  9. Ed, Go completely off the reservation. Go with Pontiac green blue metallic. It is by far the coolest factory engine color. Beats the snot out of that ugly Buick green.
  10. Upon further review. Ed and I have decided to cancel the gathering today due to rain. It looks like it will be raining all day. And it would be a lot better event if everyone were to drive their cars. Maybe we can try to get something going at a later date? Sorry Bill
  11. Gordon, Glad you're still coming. Riviera or not. See you Sat. Bill
  12. I'm game if you are. The count has dwindled a bit. We are down to a possible 5 car owners. So the shindig has been moved to the house for sure. As the trek to the barn can be sketchy when wet. I wish we could have pulled this off right. I wanted to make an entrance at the Jackson Drive cruise night. I'll park mine by the road to mark the house. So look for an orange Riv on the west side of the road. Bill
  13. BTW I can't wait to see those wheels and tires installed. Possible dropped stance in your future???
