  1. I just replaced my dark green carpet in my 65 with Clark's cut/sewn and love it. Definitely agree to get samples first as I will now be replacing the carpet on my door panels and kick plates as well. Luckily Clark's includes enough extra with their cut/sewn package to do just that. Previous owner had put down a molded dark green loop that was definitely a different shade so redoing it all.
  2. You can also check with Tim Sweeley at Rivi Central. He's here in Sacramento. He has tons of parts available and ships pretty much anywhere. Check him out at www.rivicentral.com
  3. Upholstery Needed

    Talljohn, Spoke to Bruce this morning. Nice guy. $75 per panel with my carpeting and I'll be good to go. Thanks for the info. Said it's a small job so he'll need to work it in between his larger projects but I'm in no rush so it's all good. Says he remembers your seats because, and I quote... "those first gen riviera seats are a PITA to work on.
  4. Upholstery Needed

    If I was starting from scratch I would definitely go to Clark's. My door panels were completely redone right before I purchased the car about 5 years ago. Problem is that I replaced all of my carpeting (heater core failure) with cut & sewn from Clark's so now the carpeting on the lower half of the door panels does not match with what I just installed. It's a different shade of green and is a shorter loop. Clark's cut & sewn included extra carpeting for kick plates and door panels so I have what I need, just need a shop to take all the stitching out of the existing door panels, remove the existing carpet, and replace with my Clark's cut & sewn so they all matchy matchy. Still need to order my kick plates from Clark's as well but that's next month. :-)
  5. I find myself with an assortment of parts that I do not need. Most of the parts came off an center console I picked up for parts with the exception of the antenna. It is off of my 65 and was in the trunk when I bought the car. I believe the console pieces are from a 63. If you see anything that you want or need please let me know and make me an offer. I honestly have no idea what these are worth so don't even know what to ask for them. They are sitting in my garage and need a new home.
  6. Upholstery Needed

    Thanks TallJohn, I'll check him out.
  7. Looking for references for a reputable auto upholstery shop in the Sacramento, CA area. Need some door panels redone. Any help appreciated.
  8. I can't comment on how far back the steel wheels go but there is a guy here in the Sacramento, CA area that may have the 63 and 64 steel wheels if your friends are wanting to buy some. His name is Tim Sweeley and he runs a business called Rivi Central. You can find his contact info at http://www.rivicentral.com/ or on FB at https://www.facebook.com/Rivi-Central-185684528117758/. Tim is a great guy to do business with. I have purchased many items from him over the years. I just bought 5 steel wheels for my 65 from him earlier this year for under $200 for all 5.
  9. OK, so I'm looking for one rear a/c chrome vent (pic #1) for my 65 Riviera. I'm hoping that someone has one and would be interested in trading me for some of the many miscellaneous parts that I have (see pics). I believe the parts I have are all from a 63 with the exception of the power antenna which is off a 65.
  10. 383 stroker

    I personally do not understand the desire to drop a 383 stroker into everything and think that doing so somehow made your car better, but that's just me. I would rebuild your 430-4 and drive it till the doors fell off and then rebuild it again. In the meantime go out and get yourself a nice taskforce or C10 for that 383. But that's just me.
  11. Thanks, that's good to know.
  12. Random hose...

    So a related question, what is the correct size hose for the HVAC controls? 5/32, 7/32, ???
  13. So thanks to the wife the wheel covers are all nice and shiny again. We did notice though that the spokes don't seem to be as bright as the rims themselves. is this typical that the spokes would appear a bit more dull or do I just need to break out the elbow grease?
  14. Random hose...

    It was gone when I bought the car. Previous owner installed an electronic trunk release. What I would like to figure out someday is if I could rig the trunk release in the glove box to activate the electronic release. That would be cool.
  15. Bought it that way. Wasn't sure about the dark green the first time I saw it but have grown to love it. The young man I bought it from spent a great deal of time on the interior but ran into hard times. I promised him it would have a good home. Since then I've changed a few things here to make it mine.
