  1. I am checking with a local source in SoCal. Your license plate says Washington. Not sure how shipping a hood & fender is gonna work if I find one.
  2. I saved this in hopes to someday do the same to my car. It hasn’t happened haha Great info BTW TexRiv…thank u
  3. @SwedeDownUnderR63 yes…everyone with a Riv should own the service manual. I have one too. These books are great. But it sure didn’t help tell me what I learned the hard way…(read my reply to RivNut) @RivNut I thought the same thing about the “locating hooks” when after removing the screws at the front of dash my dash would NOT budge. In my case, my hooks did need some persuasion to release. After that first time my dash now almost jumps off with a one finger tug when front screws are removed. What I learned is that a little spray lube may have been all I needed on the locating hooks for them to play nice.
  4. ”Slide cover forward” sounds confusing. Makes it seems like u are saying to slide it toward the front of the car. Maybe I’m the only one reading it like that. But in an effort to clear it up for others reading it like I am… once the screws are out, slide the cover back (towards the rear of the car).
  5. Ed’s son who is doing that 3D image thing may need those specs Also, it could just be the pic, in your pic with antenna extended it looks like the antenna goes on forever haha. Is that an illusion or is it just a super long mast?
  6. Love this mod…but how would we make that “T shape bushing?” Great pix too. I love pix haha. How did u get so many pix on one post? It always tells me to take a hike when I try to add more than like 4 pix haha Edit: hopefully one of the electrical wizards can help figure out how to get this new antenna to work with our dash switch?? 🙏🏼🙏🏼
  7. I was thinking maybe the opening was for a different radio
  8. My buddy is in need of the throttle spring that attaches to the throttle linkage at the firewall. Anyone have one for sale? edit: he believes 64/65 is the same spring. But that the 63 spring is different & will not work
  9. I was excited to try & install the “factory” radio back into my car. As always, this car doesn’t like to make anything easy on me 🤦🏻‍♂️ Question #1: Does my radio surround look like it has been modified/butchered. Can someone post a pic of what it’s suppose to look like. Here is a pic of mine. I believe someone cut the opening for a modern radio. Question #2: Is this even the right factory radio? It was in a box of parts in the truck when I bought the car.
  10. Too late…I posted on the other windshield thread that I drug my feet & when I finally got off my a$$ the prices had already been jacked up. Oh well…live & learn Your windshield looks amazing btw. Love it!! I envy u guys who got the screaming deal haha
  11. I don’t have a headliner or sun visors in my POS haha…yet. So disregard if I am wrong. But to install the visors don’t your have to cut the large hole where the “ball” tucks into the roof anyway? If so & u say u can feel it then cut the large hole & then u can peek behind the headliner clothe to see the other holes?? 🤷🏻‍♂️ Nice work on your headliner btw. I’ll be coming to your house when I’m ready to do mine. Edit: my phone was having issues posting to this thread. Not sure what happened. Moderators, delete both previous posts pls
  12. I just got off the phone with Summit. The guy they had me talk to was kind enough to check price history. According to him the price was never as low as what Doug’s original post showed ($96 & $125)…weird oh well…that’s what I get for dragging my feet 🤦🏻‍♂️ Edit: oh, forgot to mention, he also kept saying there is an additional $99 freight charge on these windshields due to size
