  1. Just found out the rear bumper on the restored 1969 Riv I bought last May has previous damage that was fixed by brazing. The chrome shop I am using has concerns about re-chroming it after my recent self inflicted tangle with an overhead door steel door frame. I am wondering if one of you Riv folks here has a nice rear bumper laying around waiting to be re-chromed and installed on my 69 Riv. If so, let me know and how much would it be. Thanks Chuck chucknixon67@gmail.com
  2. So just three days after I got my 1969 Riviera leveled with new springs and the newly chromed and painted wheels with new tires mounted on the car I am backing the car out of my mechanics shop and stupid me I managed to rake the right rear quarter panel against the shop door steel frame opening. The frame did not move but the bumper and fender sure as hell did ! This is a car that has been completely restored with a beautiful Twilight Iridescent Blue paint job that I had just bought. Needless to say I was sick to my stomach and I did not want to get out and look after I pulled the car forward
  3. I will get back with you Monday or Tuesday, waiting on photos of another light. What would you want for this one? Chuck
  4. Thanks again guys for the kind words, the full length console and console tilt wheel steering column parts are being collected and will probably be installed sometime between October and the end of the year AFTER IT COOLS DOWN. Set a record today in Dallas/Fort Worth of 106 degrees. Chuck
  5. Thanks, I have several offered so let me get back to you. Chuck
  6. Paint is Twilight Blue Iridescent GM 1969 Riviera color #51
  7. f anyone had a decent spot light/mirror combination for mounting on the drivers side of the front window of a 1921 Model 45 Touring I would be interested in purchasing if it is for sale. Thanks Chuck

  10. The car had a brand new set of Eaton OEM springs in it when I bought it that had been in it for 8+ years but no mileage on them. They did not drop sitting there for 8 years. The Coil Springs Specialties OEM springs were 1.5 inches high like I said above. The Eaton sales person I talked with about 4 weeks ago said once in a while they saw cars with new Eaton springs in them that were too high and no one could explain it. I thought the restorer had originally put heavy duty front springs in the front and I thought the Coil Spring Specialities OEM springs would bring it down to OEM height but
  11. Coil Springs Specialties in Saint Marys, Kansas sold me an OEM set and then when we were still 1.5 inches too high they made the 1.5 inch shorter ones and gave me credit back for the OEM springs. I am gathering all the console and steering column parts to make the car a console shift. It has buckets and a small console now. Always something to spend money on! Chuck
