  1. Nice job Mike - that Aqua Zephyr is certainly getting around - beautiful car ! We're not going to make the ROA this year unfortunate but did want to remind folks of the BCA regional show in Stillwater , MN August 22-24 . Hope some of the ROA folks can make it . KReed ROA 14549 BCA
  2. Kept her home as the weather was a dicey and she has never seen the rain , at least yet . The underside is a pain to clean up particularly. The white 64 was their "get way car" from the dinner/dance last night so picked that one up in a monsoon at midnight - -cleanup today . The others had been put up a few hours earlier . It was a fun day for us and hopefully them too . KReed ROA 14549
  3. Our Senior Pastor's daughter is getting married today and they asked if they could use a few of our cars for the wedding party to which we happily agreed . These 20 something kids didn't even know what a Riviera was - they do now . The bride and groom wanted the white 64 and the 8 bridesmaids and groomsmen doubled up in the other 4. Glad they got to be used for this happy event KReed ROA 14549
  4. My 65GS is “supposed “ to finally be done in a couple of weeks after two years . Ideally, i would like to have it shipped from Montgomery , TX to OKC for the show and then three days later taken home to Des Moines when the show is over. I want a dedicated shipper , enclosed trailer , preferably one car hauler with some extra space for all my left overs from the restoration. Know it’s asking a lot and won’t be cheap but anyone knows of an individual hauler in that vicinty with flexibility , I would appreciate hearing about it . Thanks much KReed ROA 14549 PS . Who's going to BCA ?
  5. California Car Covers make them to fit exactly in a variety of colors but they are $$$$$ . KReed ROA 14549
  6. The guy actually sent me an email re-describing the car . I responded that I would fly out tomorrow if he would simply show me a copy of the title and give me an address to look at the car . He said he would be glad for me to wire him the money first and then we could work something out on an inspection of the car in Washington state . Surprisingly he has not yet answered that response - guess he's too busy - yeh right .... The guys need to be blocked somehow . KReed ROA 14549
  7. Just "bought" this car for the advertised price - waiting to hear from the seller 😃😃😃. It will be interesting to see what the "deposit" is. He has a 69 Mach 1 advertised as well at a ridiculously low price . Don't understand why EBay can't screen this BS out . KReed ROA 14549
  8. Another 65 GS scam - in "USA ". I've seen these pictures somewhere ?.. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-Buick-Riviera/123737772423 KReed ROA 14549
  9. You guys make me feel better. That $65 / quart still stings though! Thanks KReed ROA 14549!
  10. Thanks Matt - the piece actually was not really pitted at all . The area where it looks so bad and appears as defects in the metal is just how the POR ended up which surprised me . Not blaming the paint but just my stupidity in even using it on this particular part at the advice of a paint guy. Next time I will ask the forum before I do ANYTHING like this - all very helpful comments . Had heard the problem with sunlight exposure and NOT to shake so I stirred it gently before application but still must have some bubbles to cause the surface effect . Anyway , it's gone now . Will post a follow up pic assuming it's not something I am ashamed of 😃 KReed ROA 14549
  11. Spent three hours yesterday blasting /sanding my radiator support back to bare metal- Royal PIA ! Primed and ready to rattle can now . Unfortunately couldn't blast my fingers to get the crap off! Lesson learned the hard way . Pics below show my mistake. Thanks for all the comments /advice . KReec ROA 14549
  12. My radiator support bracket was looking a little rough on my 67 and it was suggested by a local paint guy that I sand and use POR 15 gloss black . $64 /quart ! Did the sanding down to 800 grit and applied the POR and it looks like crap . Used a foam brush and didn't shake the paint but I am very disappointed how it came out . Wore gloves and mask - got a little in my fingers and that stuff DOES NOT come off . Anyway , going to resand and try a semigloss - suggestions ?.. KReed ROA 14549
  13. Tom - you don't understand . I'm the one who sits in the passenger seat in that car - she drives and I look in the mirror.... Otherwise I could never buy. another car . She LOVES the 67 - her favorite 😂 KReed ROA 14549
