  1. Thanks man, that's really useful info. This is new for me, so sometimes it is hard to tell what is 'broken' and what is 'it was just like that back then', if you get what I mean 😅 I've had the rear seats out and know exactly what you mean. The carpet doesn't extend far enough and even if it did, as you say, the seats do not sit down enough or tight enough to pinch it. I'll have a good think about it the next time she is out of storage and see if I can come up with a solution. Thanks again for your input guys, you're stars!
  2. Thanks so much for your suggestion. I can see your thought process. I will experiment with that idea to see if it helps. I have attached a better picture of the issue but yes, as you say it is 'under the front edge of the rear seat' that the main problem is.
  3. Hey guys, thanks so much for your advice. I will try and make the existing carpet fit better in that case. There is nothing particularly wrong with it other than the fit and cuts in certain places.
  4. Hey everybody, I hope you're all having a great day! I was looking at possibly replacing the carpet on my 1972 Buick Riviera. I am not 100% sure if it is the existing one is original but it does not fit that well, especially around the rear seats. This makes me think it was replaced at some point. I have included some pictures of the interior. Do any of you have a particular place that you would recommend to get a replacement? Also some advice around the carpets. I want to keep the car as original looking as possible.
  5. Thanks man! I will try posting there.

  7. Thanks for the link. I have actually got 2 car covers from this place in the UK - http://www.cover-systems.co.uk/. I looked at carcovers.com but the shipping and import duty were a killer. The covers are good material and do an excellent job at keeping the car dry. My only criticism is they are a bit too big for the Riv (semi custom fit) but with the straps the fit is good. I will be storing it professionally for the winter.
  8. Hey everybody! Massive apologies for not replying to this thread, I had my notifications off like a noob!! Your information is great, even now. Thank you all so much for taking the time to reply. In the end I took my Riv to Namco, a garage just down the road from me that only do American cars. The guys down there have been great and we have been getting through some work. I have begun documenting it on my YouTube channel if you want to check it out: V8Adam At the moment I am tackling the fuel sender and valve cover gasket. The fuel sender I am goin
  9. Hi everybody, I have just joined this forum as I purchased a 1972 Buick Riviera yesterday. It is my first American car after years of looking and I am super excited. As the car was bought at auction and represents a huge investment for me, I am being cautious. I have filled it with fuel, driven it about 30 miles from the auction to home and that's all. I have yet to properly look through the documentation but I believe the car has been stored for a number of years and driven little. I am in Aldershot in the UK: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Aldershot/data=
