  1. Rare color combo? I love it! https://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/cto/d/mesa-1963-buick-riviera/6798913083.html
  2. Thanks guys for the comments and suggestions. I didn't even consider the bracket for aluminum covers being made for the 2x4 manifold rather than a 1x4. I've modified my stock bracket which now looks a lot like the Clarks one and fits perfectly. On to the next mission!
  3. Hi guys. Doing some engine bay detailing and tried fitting some aluminum finned valve covers on my 63. Of course the a/c bracket is different. Is a bracket going to be tricky to find? Can anyone help? I don't want to be out of action for long looking.. but they sure look cool! Thanks guys Matt
  4. Just doing rust repairs on my 63 rear screen area. Scott - can you recommend the screws and clips you used? thanks Matt
  5. Thanks guys, was wondering if they were really even needed.. kinda answered that question too

  7. Hi all the rubber fillers behind the rear bumper for a 63 - anyone replaced the clips that hold them on? Broke several taking them off and cant seem to find replacements thanks, Matt
  8. Great info guys, I too have some electrical gremlins in my recently bought 63. I have no turn signals at all, not even on the dash, can't feel clicking or engaging in anyway with the switch on the column. I have a large do-do list on this car and this job is getting closer. Sounds like I have the common fault During a quick look under the dash I also appear to be missing the bulb holder behind the ignition switch, with two cut wires - black/white stripe and white/black stripe. I guess these came from that?
  9. Pics would be great Ed if its not a hassle. I do have the moldings thankfully. I hope to see filler oozing through the holes when I remove interior Thanks guys
  10. The previous owner of my 63 has shaved off the antenna, door handles and lock barrels, and worst of all the twin dummy side vents on the rear quarters - one of my favourite parts of the 63 and 64. I've re fitted the handles and locks, but these rear quarter ones are gonna be tricky. If anyone has a picture of the quarter without its trim showing the holes, that would be a great help I'm sure Thanks Matt
  11. Great stuff! I'm struggling with mine at the moment. Are there any hidden screws that I need to remove before trying this? I can only see the one obvious one each side thanks Matt
  12. Hi guys Just hoping for some recommendations on where to buy a complete rubber kit for my 63. I have found plenty of options, are they all pretty much the same, quality and price wise? They seem to be.. Needing everything, vent windows, the lot Thanks Matt
