  1. Congrats and welcome. Great car. Brian
  2. Correct, they should open with the key on or off, car running or not. They should close when the light switch is pushed in to turn off the lights, *when the key is on* If you happen to shut the car off with the lights on, they will/should close the next time the key is turned on. Hope this helps Brian
  3. He’s got a 63 with a dynaflow, I’m not positive, but I’d bet they are different than the 64 st 400 lines Ed ordered. Call them directly and confirm for a 63 👍
  4. Had the riv on the lift and could actually see the rocker moldings 😁
  5. Rivnik, I did mine last winter, this was my process. I stripped them completely, straightened any dings, sanded the top face of the ribs all the way to 2000 grit to make the polishing easier. Polished to a mirror shine with a wheel mounted in my cordless drill and Mother’s aluminum polish. Cleaned, taped with fine line, used a self etch primer and paint. As turbinator stated, I pulled the tape when still wet. They were a lot of work and turned out beautiful. That said, your correct, they do face downward and you don’t see them that much. Haha. But I know they’re right and kept me busy last winter 😁 good luck and have fun, hope this helps. Brian
  6. Thanks Tom, I couldn’t help but stop and grab the picture under the lights. 😎
  7. When your walking to the car and have to stop and take a picture. ✨😁✨ you know you all have done it, haha
  8. I used an oil finish on mine. No clear, I hit them with some feed and wax once or twice a year. Still need to get them striped.
  9. 72 GS sunroof on eBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/384316405862
  10. Man that’s rough. But loaded. Power vents, silver deluxe leather, I bet it was stunning when it was new. Those wildcat center caps too…..
  11. I run 215/75/15 on my 65. Generally considered close to original size. Hope that helps Brian
  12. Yes, they had a grey, cast look, center with a brushed finish rim. I like ‘em. pretty positive they are American Racing Salt Flat wheels or similar
  13. Ed, sorry to hear you’ve been down but glad your on the mend. 👍
  14. Ed, yeah it is an accessory tach. Definitely a little later era but kinda neat. The dial rotates around. post up some pics of your cars. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them. 😁
  15. Thing was cool. Silver interiors are so neat.
  16. Just throwing this out here. Pretty sure we all love looking at Rivieras, and since the meet was canceled... I’d love to see EVERYONE post some pictures of their cars on here. Virtual Riv meet if you will.. Here’s mine & Robert Doren’s black on red 64 at a show in Urbana Ohio on the 4’th. The silver/ silver 63 is a ROA member from Urbana. Unfortunately, I forgot his name. Beautiful car
  17. Agreed, and I’m ok with that😁 Those GS caps are cool too
  18. Hey Drew, thanks. Yes, you’re correct, the edges were perforated on the original so I tried to duplicate that. Zoom in on the pic of the original one. I scored and folded the new board,It fits in there tight. Take your time, you’ll get it. Let me know if you have any questions. Brian
