  1. OK Ted: I think an automotive paint store can computer match anything. Mitch
  2. OK Buick People: This is a $3,000 car. I have seen a really beautiful 60 Flattop sell recently for between 15 and 23K. Mitch
  3. OK John: i had my tank coated. it was drilled on both sides so there were 4 entry points and media blasted. Cleaned and then sprayed with an epoxy. I have cars that should look that good. No more problems. $300 in San Leandro, CA. A 1960 Buick tank is IDENTICAL to a First-gen Riviera. just the filler neck is angled differently. The problem with my tank was microscopic particulate matter getting past the fuel filter messing up the carb. Mitch
  4. OK Arnulfo: I'm saying that there is a scientific procedure used to diagnose any mechanical malfunction. This case? it could be fuel, it could be electrical and it could even be mechanical. Having a starting point and eliminate each system from there. It is NOT simple. Mitch
  5. OK Buick People: Arbitrarily suggesting things is a fool's errand that lowers the bar for all. Suggest a scientific diagnosis. Your first step if you can't do it yourself is to seek a qualified person who can diagnose this properly. After a verifiwed diagnosis you are on to the next step. The bars leaks? NOT IN A MILLION YEARS. Mitch
  6. OK Dennis: Screw the lawyer. Use that "A" word (attorney) and the meter starts running and it's very hard to shut off. I'd look for someone who has a DMV service. Perhaps you can find someone locally on line or call a few local used car dealers or the closest auto auction for a lead. NOT a big deal. I was a dealer fore 30 years and there are many different ways to approach your situation. Mitch
  7. OK Mike: Send me your address and I'll send 'em out. If they work pay me for the postage, if not? Do someone a favor sometimes. Mitch
  8. OK: Does it look like the quarter panels below the body side molding look like the body guy forgot to form them? Mitch
  9. OK Piter: The front clips are different on all 3. Which model and body style? Mitch
  10. OK Andrew: I had a guy who ran a high end rod shop quote me $1,300. He had replaced the one in his own 65 Riv. Sounded high but I'm one cheap sob. Mitch
  11. OK Dan: I got it today and it looks great. Thanks very much, Mitch
  12. OK Dan: Check was mailed yesterday AM. Thanks, Mitch
  13. O Chris: If they were 66 I'd be all over them. Mitch
