  1. I have a 62 Thunderbird Sport Roadster and absolutely love it ! My 63 Riviera is a totally different drive and feel. Both are great cars IMO . Not sure which I would give up first . KReed ROA 14549
  2. Gorgeous car. Would love to see interior pics when you can . KReed ROA 14549
  3. Hi Ed - those hubcaps would look awesome IMO. I am going to experiment a little with the rally wheel color - either cast gray or black like rockers and headlights. IMO the silver exterior just looks better with the black contrast and I am no means fanatical on complete originality . I do what looks good to me and could care less what the “ judges “ think . After all what do you do with all those trophies when you die? Does anyone think their kids really care? Estate sale ?.. 😎🤣BTW this car I’m doing used to belong to Steve Kouris - he’s been great to deal with . KReed ROA 14549
  4. I am restoring a 65 GS now that was originally silver cloud ZZ code. Upgraded the paint a little to Blade Silver (2014 Corvette) and wanted some contrast in my rockers so did them in black as are the clamshells . Removed all paint with lacquer thinner , polished the ribs , taped them with 1/8 inch tape , primed and painted . Pretty happy with them considering what I started with. Haven’t done the wheels yet but will probable keep them cast blast gray as Ed mentioned above . Purists may snub their nose but to each his own , huh? KReed ROA 14549
  5. I am in the process of redoing the deluxe interior in a 65 Riviera. I know that Clark’s sells the foam buns for 63 and 64 but they state clearly that the 65 foam is not the same and they do not have it . My upholstery guy said that it might be easier to “modify the 63/64 foam to fit the 65 Deluxe interior than to build foam from scratch . Wondering if anyone has expertise / experience along this line ? As always , thanks . KReed ROA 14549
  6. Absolutely the best decision Ray. Thanks for all your hard work. KReed ROA14549
  7. I have used Hagerty for 7 years and found their service to be superb and prices reasonable . They have never questioned the three claims I have had - 2 minor , and 1 major . I also have the tow policy which is worth every penny IMO. KReed ROA 14549
  8. Look for rust in rear quarters , floor pans beneath seat and foot pan, trunk near wheel wells and rockers . I sold a very nice complete KX 425 6 months ago for $10,500. The KX engine is actually more rare than the 65 LX IMO . Good luck KReed ROA 14549
  9. Thanks Steve- tried hardware store already but will try McMaster Carr KReed ROA 14549
  10. Thanks everyone - will check them all out . You guys are great! KReed ROA 14549
