  1. A sharp razor blade does the trick. In the Bodyshop busisness we do this all the time to reinstall stick-on emblems and nameplates. With that being said, for the 1st and 2nd Gen Riviera Mongrams, it would be a helluva lotta cutting so i woulnd recommend double stick tape for them...i would second the weatherstrip adhesive on the studs
  2. For those of you, like me, that shop at HFT and use Harbor Freight Jack Stands: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnet.com/google-amp/news/harbor-freight-recall-jackstands-collapse/ Stay safe my friends.
  3. Yes, the Chevys had nice plastic pockets (2 each side) mounted on the side of the console for the seatbelt clasp to fit perfectly in...at least the 70-72 Monte Carlos did
  4. Anytime Tom T. Little hints like that is nothing compared to the wealth of knowledge and advice you share on here!
  5. Can you draw it on a piece of paper and then snap a picture, then attach the picture?
  6. I tried emailing Mark at Repops as recommended by Bill in the other thread and he never got back to me either. Nick 15937
  7. The SEM interior paint is specifically formulated for plastics and vinyls and doesnt require a primer. They do make an adhesion promoter, which i didnt use, but like i said...the bare plastic spots covered well and were smooth; it was the paint that was layed down over the factory paint that had issues. IMO, the catalyst in the SEM paint reacted with the factory paint lacquer.
  8. David, what brand paint did you use, if i may ask? I tried to paint my console with SEM interior paint and i got a less than desirable result...the finish was almost (but not quite) crinkley... Sanded wet with 400 to 500 to get all the chips and scratches out, scuffed the whole thing with grey scuff pad, and cleaned with grease and wax remover, and sprayed the first coats very dry...the only thing i didnt use was an adhesion promoter on the bare spots...but thats not where the issues were. I think the SEM paint didnt like the factory paint...
  9. I dont think you can lengthen the wire 3" with the adjustment. The cables are available, i would replace it.
  10. 2nd Pat. Both my 64 and 65 have a spring hose clamp holding it on.
  11. Kinda makes ya feel like a kid in a Candy Store!
