I had to replace the coupler on my S/C this past weekend and with the help from this great site I was able to get it done!  Thanks for all the tips and advice.

While I had the S/C off I decided to give it a good cleaning in and out.  I wasn't satisfied with just a wash down on the shell so I hit it with an abrasive pad and then sprayed it with some black engine enamel with ceramic.  I think it came out pretty good.

What do you guys think?

Looks good dude. Gonna be easier to keep it clean. I just degreased the heck outta my engine bay and wire wheeled some rust under the air box. After that I painted it with some flat black rust preventer. I wanna crawl under the car one day and paint under the car with por15

Do you guys know if my wheels are stock Riviera wheels?  I want to buy some center caps for them but I want to make sure I get the right ones.

eBay would be your best bet, but expect to spend at least $100 for all four. It might be more worthwhile to just save up and get a nice set of rims on there.

Larry, the centers in your post above, the first link, of the seven pictured one has one tab, five have two tabs, and one has three tabs. None of them have the metal ring on them, definitely not worth the asking price, actually not worth anything!

I have been watching that auction just to see if anyone was crazy enough to place a bid.

My new Riviera center caps came in today.  They definitely gave my ride a face lift.

That looks a million times better than before. I bet a few hours spent with a buffer and all the various cleaners and waxes would make it SHINE.
