  1. Cherrybomb, The dash lights are controlled by the headlight switch, you rotate the knob to adjust the brightness and the may be just turned off. If not, the fuse box is located about where your left toes would point when you are sitting behind the wheel. Look for a fuse marked " Inst pnl ". It is also possible the rheostat on the headlight switch may be bad, so you may need a new switch.
  2. Everybody, an announcement will be made in the near future. Things need to straightened out before this will happen. Be patient please.
  3. Ted, The wheels aren't to difficult to find but tend to be a little "used". They can be refurbished professionally or if you have some time ,your self. The hard thing to find are center caps. The emblems are usually cracked or missing ( similarly to the 63-65 Knock off wheel covers- hint hint Turbinator ). They also have special lug nuts, so be sure to have them if you want to mount these wheels on you Riviera ( or Toronado or Eldorado -not correct, but cool none the less ).
  4. Reproduction right hand mirrors are available from The Parts Place Inc. in IL ( thepartsplaceinc.com ).
  5. Mark, You have the correct drivers door mirror. You are in luck as the passenger side is being reproduced. You can find it at The Parts Place www.thepartsplaceinc.com. part # 9874199 $179.00 include mounting hardware.
  6. The GNX's were numbered, this car is number 403. Buick did the same with the 99 Riviera Silver Arrows.
  7. You will want to do the package shelf before the seat back as it wraps down and behind the seat back.
  8. Both arrived today here up Nort' doncha know. They came separately.
  9. Magnificent obsession?
  10. Me thinks that Jason Z did sell his car or there is a twin running around out there.
  11. Bob, Close but no cigar. The one he needs has two spade terminals instead of the single round. Thank you for checking however.
  12. Remove the ashtray assembly( the entire slide out) remove the rear bracket supporting the radio, remove the heater duct tube behind the radio ( round fabric with metal coils,disconnect the wiring and then the nuts at the radio control studs (the ones at the front you can see in your picture ) wiggle the radio back and down through the ashtray hole. Should take about 15 minutes.
  13. I got a call from a new ROA member today. He is restoring a 75 Riviera that his parents bought new and he needs the temp sensor that screws into the back of the drivers side cylinder head. He has tried the Buick Farm and his local NAPA store with no luck. I checked CARS website, Rock Auto, EBAY and O'Reillys with no luck either. Does anyone have one to sell or know where to find one? I would like to help this guy and will pass on to him who should get the credit for helping him ( and me ).
  14. Sorry, That is my baby and it is not going anywhere. I am thinking of down sizing, I have both a 71 and 73 GS in triple black I might part with. Not sure yet as it would break up the set. Both are loaded but have bench seats. The 72 has buckets and I love them.
