  1. 1964 in Southern California http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/cto/5837769502.html In case you were wondering. It's my Rivi up for sale. Just want to say thank you to everyone on these forums for you help and sharing of knowledge. Especially you Ed, you were great help to me ugh not sure why everything is underlined in the post, sorry
  2. Holy shnikees. I believe the last time I logged onto the forum your Rivi was on the rotisserie. ( yes i know it's been a long time since I logged in) David keep on pushing forward, you might be a jerk, but not a quitter joking
  3. Cool57 , I haven't noticed any issue with exhaust fumes entering the car, with where my pipes are located now. When I am driving my Rivi the windows are always down, that's sunny Southern California for you. One of the first things I noticed the first time I drove my Rivi after the air ride system was installed. Was that my Rivi sounds louder, thus because of where my pipes are located now(they are closer to my ears now) I hear them more now. Than before when the pipes where located all the way at the rear bumper. It's not overpowering tho.It's just one of those things where you know your car and you know how it sounds when you drive it. So when something changes especially sounding, you will notice it.
  4. Steve, yes they did a lot of work for me. I wish I currently had pics of under my Riviera so you could see the air tank. But as I said it's behind the rear end and in front of the gas tank. There is no clearance issues of it hitting the road, or driveways,speed bumps,etc.... My friend tho re-routed my exhaust tho. My exhaust pipes dump out at the front of the rear tires
  5. ED, I got my fingers and my toes crossed
  6. That's the 2 compressors, the valves and the computer/brain for the air ride system. My 2 friends who installed everything kinda opps. Everything works fine, but they didn't realize that I had the carpet kit for the trunk. So when they discovered that the carpet kit for the trunk was there with the stuff they had, they had already wired and plumbed and mounted the compressors and valves. And didn't want to yank everything out at that point. Which I don't blame them. So whenever I go all out and do a David aka RockinRiviDad job on my Riviera, frame off and all. Then I'll put the trunk carpet kit in. This is my controller/display for my air ride system.
  7. This is not my Rivi, but this is where I got the idea from for mounting it under the car. Behind the rearend and in front of the gas tank. I don't have any pics of mine. Next time I'm under my Rivi I'll try to take some pics.
  8. Steve and Steve, Steelman, I have that same key chain as you do. 2 of them came with my air ride parts. I'm guessing your tank is 5 gallon tank. A buddy of mine who has bagged a lot of cars / trucks. Advised me to run 2 compressors. Slosteve, I'm running same kind of compressors as you. 2 Viair 480 compressors The 2 compressors and the valves are under the package tray. My air tank is mounted underneath the car
  9. Steve, where did you install the air tank at on your Riviera ? How many gallons is the tank you have?
  10. Arnulfo, thanks for the input. Any money saved is what need. Ed, thank you kind sir for different ohm readings. You are a Riviera guru. You have been a huge help for me with my Riviera. Would it be more ideal to check the ohm readings on the sending unit with a full gas tank or almost empty tank? Northmn, thanks for the tip. I hope it's something that simple, with my rivi.
  11. Hi Carsten, welcome to the forums. I wish I could be more helpful to you about the car. I would say just keep in mind the other person is "selling". Some people will say anything to try and sell a car. I myself is wondering why they claim its new paint and you say it's already bubbling. If the car is very orginal as they say. I wonder why they painted it then. When the patina looks is very in these days.
  12. David, wow you are working your magic on your 65. Looking good dude. As Ed made you the offer to go to Kansas. How about you make a shorter trip to Long beach and work some magic on my 64. Heck bring your pocketbook too if you don't mind But seriously your build is looking sharp.
  13. A buddy of mine fab'd up a back plate then mounted my display/controller to it. It fits nicely door door goes up and down no issues.
  14. 64 is what I have. Well then my mistake
  15. Hey that's the same place I mounted my controls for my air ride system. With the dash door down. Everything looks stock. You wouldn't even know the controls were there unless you lifted up the door on the dash/ panel
  16. I agree. I wanted to do what slosteve was doing in the front with 2600lb bags up front. The exact same way he was attempting to do it. But unfortunately for me by the time I came across the idea of running 2600lb bags up front. I had already bought ride tech shockwaves for the front. =/ In a few years when it's time to replace em. I will put bags up front rather than buying a new set of shockwaves. Cause yes the shockwaves are pricey.
  17. You don't need to put shocks up front , so no need to relocate the shocks. If you put "big" bags up front. I talked a lot with a buddy of mine who has bagged a lot of different cars and trucks. He said the same thing with big bags up front you can roll without shocks up front.
  18. Cool, thanks fellas for the info. I was looking thru service manual. And from what i read in the manual. I was pretty sure it was the sending unit. I believe the manual mentioned there was a access panel in the trunk to get to the sending unit to pull out the unit and replace it.
  19. So ever since I've owned(1 year) my Riviera the gas gauge has been finicky. It basically works when it wants to. Which isn't often. Majority of the time the needle is nowhere to be seen on the gauge or is hiding. But every now and then it makes an appearance and seems to display around the correct amount of gas/fuel in the tank. My trip counter works. So I trip it / reset the trip counter every time I fill up. So I kind of have an idea of when I need to fill up again. Has anyone else encountered this? Or am I just lucky ?
  20. I know most of you are more of the traditional stock Rivi lovers. But A buddy of mind email this too me so I figured I'd share it with you Rivi nuts. I like how they made the LS3 look like a nailhead. http://www.lateral-g.net/members/ebmcriv/ http://egarage.com/videos/no-longer-a-job/ I hope all is well with everyone
  21. Tom K, welcome to the club/board. Congratz on the 64. I'm sure you will find the fellow members on this forum very helpful and knowledgeable. Good luck with your 64
  22. I agree with Steve , get the car and yourself away from that mechanic
  23. When I bought my 64 Riv and got it home and went to give it a tune up. I found a hidden key in the engine compartment
  24. Tim, great work you did. They look great
  25. Ed, Here are some pics of mine. But I know my Riviera has been hit in the rear So I'm pretty sure this isn't the original rear bumper that the car came with off the factory. Here are a bunch of pics of mine. You can download them from the links I put up.
