  1. im glad they are working on the search function but i realized more than a year ago that google worked much better.
  2. im impressed and shocked.
  3. i went there today.the car has been there two weeks and of course the only part missing from the car was the turn signal module.the headlight sw looked great and i brought a battery to check it.the headlights,parklights and off worked great.too bad i didn't check the light dimmer switch.i would have bought it anyway to have rebuilt.same with the wiper switch,intermittet doesn't work.that might be because its a 1986.the windshield was busted above the cluster and it was rusted up so i left it.the tv screen was the old type with touch outer buttons.the car had a short somewhere and my battery wires got hot fast so i couldn't check anything else.i would have liked to get one of the fenders to compare to mine but i would have had to remove the hood.the car wasn't wrecked but the front trim was severely tarnished.the front bumper looked like aluminum.i also grabbed the wrong color seatbelt receivers.

  4. yes the bulb works when i jumped the relay.its not getting the signal from the turn signal module or broke wire.also the dash indicators blink twice and then stay on.coil?would a 1986 riv module be the same?
  5. it has power to the relay but its not getting the flashing signal.the other relay for the driver side is.neither on hazards nor turn signals.
  6. the rims are worth very little.i have some you can buy cheap.the same engine is in millions of cars.
  7. i think the 1989?looks better imo.theres a 1986 in the local junk yard.its hard the find rivs or reattas in the yards anymore so im tempted to grab parts off it.otherwise i will have to wait til i find a broken car for sale.
  8. one of my thoughts was to find a fiero in great condition but needing an engine and swap the reatta engine in.but it seems to be a major undertaking.
  9. i guess the 80s riv fans don't use this forum.or aren't helpful.
  10. you have to ask a realistic price if you really want to sell it.i really need to proof read my posts.
  11. id like to have a allante except for their bad reputation.theres one on a local car lot.
  12. it seems to me 1987 but the grill didn't change til 1989.
  13. im still trying to figure what year front end that is.
  14. are the door panels leather?i assumed they are vinyl.
  15. can you recommend a good site to compare part numbers?
  16. but the back does.its not the bulb,no power at the socket.any idea?
  17. since i can't think how to search for this i'll just ask.will a 1989-93 front clip bolt on to a 1986 riviera.i know i have a reatta.i want to mostly bolt on a 1989 riv front clip and someone said a 1986 riv front will mostly bolt on.
  18. the more i look into it the more i prefer the 89 up front end.it seems that rivieras went with composite headlights in 1988 and then a whole new front end in 1989.im going to look into swapping one of those.
  19. i found a local 1986 in a junkyard.is there a list somewhere for what to grab off it.i know[by experience]that the tape player is different.its hard to tell by the picture how much of the front clip is worth buying.
