  1. That ‘66 is a steal. Would make a great southern ride if all the upholstery and side vinyl was changed to white. Would stay cool cruising the coast while staying classy and factory appearance. The wheel covers are stunning. - very tempted
  2. PPG BLACK paint is very inexpensive. Only cost me a few hundred bucks to repaint my big Pontiac 2 years ago.
  3. Also make sure it’s not the alternator that’s whistling. I once installed a new one that “whistled”. I mistakenly thought it was a belt. I wouldn’t trust a new electronic regulator - low quality. I believe the old styles are still available just have to look more….
  4. Wow Internal collapse. I totally forgot that could happen. Now I recall from working on jets all hoses in the engine bay had to be replaced every 5 years and I believe all others every 7? Good practice for cars as well. I only use Gates hoses now. You guys? Thanks!
  5. Swap bamboo cream for copper mist…fate fatal 😔 so close This ones in my ‘hood if anyone wants me to check her out.
  6. Don’t skimp on the paint. Get a urethane based with added hardener. Then always keep the wheel shadowed from direct sunlight when under long periods.
  7. Assuming the wiring is routed as original, it’s likely a problem is in or at the master switch. These can be rebuilt. Pull the switch and probe with a meter. If good then You will need a wiring diagram to verify / chase the leads for being correctly laid out.
  8. How did I miss this Cowcatcher? 😆 https://www.curbsideclassic.com/blog/cc-cohort/cohort-outtake-1973-buick-riviera-thats-one-way-to-deal-with-those-pesky-5-mile-bumpers/
  9. Turn on your automatic notification to your private e-mail address within your profile. I sent you a P.M. months ago but never heard back. So sorry. You'll find them.
  10. TA Performance has a lot of fun goodies to help a boggy ‘73 - if you end up with that.
  11. Gone to first requester Sorry if you missed out
  12. I gave the last of my Riviera items to a cool cat from South Africa but I forgot these. One last time - Does ANYONE want these before I toss them?
  13. Your compressor is correct. The brackets are not correct. Any ‘67 - ‘69 Buick V8 donor should have the brackets. Your intake manifold must have the bolt hole for the cross brace.
  14. Gee That gizmo has all the design of Spacely Space Sprockets! That styling is overdue for a comeback. Stainless cover next time.
  15. Jelly Bean envy! 9000K https://www.ebay.com/itm/1995-Buick-RIVIERA/194001670795?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3De5cfab470a7c4ddf8b7200d775783073%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D194001670795%26itm%3D194001670795%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Aad943fa3-9307-11eb-95fc-de4d63600665|parentrq%3A8e464c6f1780a4d361ee5a83ff8bc2ee|iid%3A1 (Not mine but I wish it was)
  16. All valve covers in general Great points Thanks all!
  17. So, I always had valve covers leak within a couple years. Aside form gopping up with two tons of sealant, whats your best method? Sealant on both sides of gaskets or one? Cork, rubber, fibrous gaskets? What type of sealant? Torque value? Thanks Paul
  18. Man, these boats are flipping fast. That car was up for sale just a few years ago up north. Hence the no AC. Now she’s in Florida. Well I guess one can drive her the two cool months out of the year in comfort. Not me.

    So, I got a very nice driver level grill. Excellent map light switch and speedo here in Florida. All '67 Please get 'em Thanks
  20. They can copy any image but the 3D effect claim can be misleading. The “3D” reference is to the outer dome shape of the medallions. The image under the clear dome remains 2D. I had a simple Chevy bow tie set made years ago and it was perfect for my set up. I wanted the colors to match my car. But the image was not 3D.
  21. The two generations you mention won’t swap as the interfacing angles between the bodies and mirrors are off. Check out KReeds after market mirrors on his boat tail. They are slick and match the flow of the body lines well IMO. Happy 2021
  22. I got 2 and 9/16 inches across the face. 66mm Tabs not included
