As you can tell, there is extensive paint damage. Most people would've been scared away from it.
So far i've put on Fresh rotors, brake pads, and Fresh tires. Oil change, and a wash.
I dropped the car off today at the paint shop. I had them add a custom design. I'll keep it to myself and show you guys when i get the car back around wednesday.

And that back there in the Town and coun try is my peice.

Excelent opportunity to choose any color that would really make the Riv's lines POP!

Other Colors I was interested when painting mine.

Aviator Grey limited paint
alright, i finally have pictures. TT_grey

Aero Blue Pearl from Crossfire
alright, i finally have pictures. 04_det_02+2005_chrysler_crossfire_roadster+side_interior_view

Corvette Yellow: I still think it would look sharp on a Riv but it's a very brave move.

I know it's been awhile since i last posted pics. Well, i got the car back over a week ago. The paint looks awesome. The car looks awesome. Since the day i got the car back from the paint shop, the temporary imspection was expired, the Riv has been sitting at my parents garage.
Well, i gog the inspection done today. The mechanics said, WOW, it looks brand new.
Tmorrow, i plan to buy some car detailing materials, and wash the car before i bring it home tomorrow night. The engine bay needs a serious de greasing. But anyways, i'll post some pictures tomorrow. happy

Glass Roof Effect ++++++ Very Nice, one of a kind, for now wink

Looks good! thumbsup
I guess I should have gone that route and had someone else do mine, I would have it back by now! headbutt
Maybe a single blue pinstripe down the side? Painted on of course.
Engine bay isn't too bad, just needs a little TLC.
The tires are sharp! Do they make noise going down the road? What kind of Eagles are they?
Maybe a lighter wood dash with the blue interior?

thank you everyone. Yes, i was going for the glass roof effect. The first day i drove the car home, i took it to this car wash (yes, with the old paint job) and i saw an E350 with the paronamic roof, and thought. hmph.. I like that.
I really love how the car looks like now. I've gotten a couple of offers lol
The tires are Goodyear, Eagle Ultra grips. I get no road noise from them. The car is very smoth until about 80. I feel little vibration. Could be the bushings, or the loose driver side door panel. It's missing some clips . No sure. I have to take a mid term today, so maybe i might get a chance to look into it tomorrow.

If it's a vibration you can drive in and out of it's probably a balancing issue with the rims.

The Riv looks so much better and the roof concept is very interesting

How about a dark gray graphite looking dash kit to go with the roof? It's hard to find a wood dash kit that looks good with blue. I'm sorry too, but I've never liked the dark red interiors........ confused

Car looks good. The glass roof is very interesting.

Could you get the rubber around the sunroof painted a gloss black so its not as noticeable? Or would it not stick?

PostSubject: updated pictures, Cat eyes has a couple of mods.   alright, i finally have pictures. EmptySun Jul 15, 2007 2:20 pm

Ok, i've done a couple of gentle mods to my Rivi. In the steps of my last Riv, i've gotten tint and exhaust. The tints are 35% in order to keep it legal.
Then the exhaust, i wanted more rumble but not hugely loud. These are the same mufflers i put on the last riv.
I remeber what one guy said to me then. "Wow, now your car sounds like it's got some power" Yeah, it does.

I hope ya'll enjoy.
