  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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/
  4. 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.
  5. TA Performance has a lot of fun goodies to help a boggy ‘73 - if you end up with that.
  6. Gone to first requester Sorry if you missed out
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. Gee That gizmo has all the design of Spacely Space Sprockets! That styling is overdue for a comeback. Stainless cover next time.
  10. 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)
  11. All valve covers in general Great points Thanks all!
  12. 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
  13. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. I got 2 and 9/16 inches across the face. 66mm Tabs not included
  18. Ken ’67 turbine medallions are identical to those in ‘69 plain wheel covers. Extremely rare in good shape. I can show you how to restore them. I have three non cracked medallions you can have for your dads Riv. Not mint but very nice. Happy new year Paul PS there are ‘69 plain covers on eBay now.
  19. That brown Riv has been for sale for years Brown on brown is a hard sell
  20. I’m sorry but the column is gone. You’d be surprised at how difficult it is to give this stuff away. So much is one year only and shipping is what it is. I still have the really nice driver grill set. 50 clams holiday break for members (+shipping) Cheers
  21. If your old cable is not broke don’t replace it. Just replace the sleeve. Most of the time the ID of the sleeve gets worn and the cable is fine. Some new cables are junk as they twist and give inaccurate readings. Also a Speedo repair shop owner told me to only use bearing grease for lube.
