  1. I am currently using Stinger Roadkill to insulate all my floors, doors and any large panels prone to vibration. It is comprable to Dynamat Extreme but is not quite as good, but pretty darn close. I've done cars with Dynamat extreme and the difference in vibration, sound and temp is significant versus no or stock deadeners. I figured the Stinger is a good compromise on price to insulate and sound deaden the Riviera considering how much of it is needed to do it properly. If you are willing to cut and fit yourself, you can get a much better product for much less than the pre-cute stuff from OPGI etc. I can post some pics of what it looks like so far if you're interested. The problem with the asphalt/tar based products is that many of them eventually fail by losing their adhesive properties and many of them also pop off fumes in the driving area. I know some people have had good luck with them, but I would stay away from them and the cheaper deadeners that are asphalt based. It's not a job you want to have to do twice or have to deal with the car smelling inside that cabin. Ed - I'm not sure about bookmarking, but what I do for that is I follow the thread and then just turn the notifications off. Lets me go back and find it later by listing out threads I'm following.
  2. One idea is to try to call Rubber the Right Way or one of the places that specialize in rubber and seals for classics and they may know where to get them or at least what size they are.
  3. They also sell them In 10 packs on eBay. I found 3 or 4 broken when I replaced all my dash Bulls recently. Was the reason a number of them weren't working.
  4. Thanks for posting this. I was looking for this same information.
  5. There is someone on eBay that sells precut vinyl leatherette trim on eBay. I put the link below. Anyone have any experience with this or know if the quality and look is correct. Mine is ok but a bit third. Basically have to put vinylex on it weekly to keep it,looking decent. http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=321797136707&globalID=EBAY-US
  6. Bill, for the sanden from vintage air, did you have to fabricate a bracket? I really don't want to mess with any of that if I can avoid it. The four seasons sea foam mentioned would be perfect, however I've read some reviews to stay away from any of the four seasons parts. Not sure if anyone has experience with four seasons parts here.
  7. I plan to put in an optima with a topper when I replace mine soon. I put optimas in all my cars and never have problems. They are bulletproof and worth the extra money and the fact they are sealed is another big plus.
  8. Good deal - Let us know how it goes. Get some video of the fire up and post it for us. I know it sucks to have to pull it all apart again but think about what would have happened if you hadn't caught it now versus later. Good luck!
  9. Where are you seeing that? I only see the two grooves on the Sanden style. The Pro6Ten all show one groove only and Vintage Air said they only make them with one groove. If they can be had with 2 grooves that would solve my problem.
  10. My original compressor (64 Riviera) needs to be rebuilt. I really would like to replace it with one of the new Pro6Ten compressors since they are quieter, more efficient and will actually be cheaper than a rebuild. Quote to rebuild the original is about $500 and it will take roughly 6-8 weeks. The problem is that the Pro6Ten compressors are 1 groove and made to work with one belt. My original compressor is a 2 groove pulley that's designed to use 2 belts. Oddly enough, right now the previous owner was running it with just 1 belt since the A/C system was not being used. Do I need both belts, or can I just use one belt and go with the Pro6Ten. Trying to make sure that will work and was also trying to understand the advantage and the reason for 2 belts in the original stock configuration. Thanks.
  11. I think it may have been parker-hannifan at one time. Now they are called Parker, at least the one near me. The one near me deals primarily with industrial and commercial applications but the hoses are the same, actually stronger than automotive grade. In my case I converted my fittings to AN-6 so it was very easy for them to make the hose but they seemed to have every fitting under the sun in the store, so as long as you bring the hose with you I'm sure they can replicate it I did find this on Ebay. it says it will fit a 67 Riviera so might be what you need. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Omega-Power-Steering-Pressure-Hose-821-/161480490312?fits=Year%3A1967%7CModel%3ARiviera&hash=item2598fcbd48:g:DoIAAOSwmUdUYTqP&vxp=mtr Raul
  12. I know you said you checked Steele rubber but did you see this one? Looks like it could possibly work. http://www.steelerubber.com/firewall-grommet-60-0013-20
  13. just smell it - there is no mistaking diff oil for water. it just plain stinks..
  14. If you aren't able to find a stock replacement, just bring the original with you and take it to a Parker store. They just made me a custom high steering pressure line for my Camaro last week. Took them less than 10 min and cost was $24. I initially built my own lines using a kit with the reusable compression fittings, but no matter what I tried, they leaked and I knew at some point it was going to pop off which would be catastrophic since the power steering line also feeds the hydroboost brake system I installed. One other note if you do get the Parker lines. They have their name and website address stamped on the hose in bright yellow. I used a small amount of lacquer thinner on a towel to remove the writing and the hose is now just plain black and looks stock.
  15. Thanks guys. I ordered the Eastwood underhood black and will also look for the Krylon and spray a few test panels out to see which looks closest. I re-sprayed the dash panels with rustoleum matte nickel and the color and finish came out spot on. I actually can't believe how nice it came out. Will post some pics once I reinstall the dash. Just waiting on the duct ball/vent felt that is supposed to arrive tomorrow. If only someone made reproductions of the finned aluminum panels on the dash, I could make it 100% perfect. Mine are in good shape but still have a few dings and scratches.
