Car looks good! Looks like it cleaned up very nice. I'm curious to see how the engine cleaned up?
Black is a great color on this body style, of course so is White, Silver, Blue, Green, Burgundy, have I missed any?
They all look good!

VERY NICE!
Some "Goo Gone" will very easily take the sticker residue off your bumper and in my experience, it doesn't mar or discolor the plastic/ composite material.

Dude - are those not little girl things in your back window?

I guess it's a little extra emasculation for anyone who gets smoked by the Riv. You should put a My Little Pony back there too.

What's the best/easiest way to get those tips on? Mine are stockers and look like they'll have to be cut off?

And then get the others welded on?

I was thinking of maybe painting them a flat grey but now my love of chrome has creeped back into my psyche!

They could possibly clamp on but mine had to be welded on. An exhaust shop will be able to do it for you for pretty cheap. Probably like $20.

No Jack, those things are a small dalmation toy puppy( the only pet I have) and a decal of my brothers exhaust shop business(Exhaust Special-T's).
The toy dog was black and white kinda color coordinated. It is a boy dog tho. nono

Getting them welded on is the best way to keep them on and straight..

I love it, it reminds me of the good ole days, when i was stock and quiet, and my license was valid, and I didnt know ALL of the local police. If you ever get to the point where you feel too slow, just let me know, hi

Nice rims!
Looks great the way the chrome contrasts with the Black finish.

Excellent ride.

Every picture I see of a RIV makes me like mine, more and more.
