Thanks, Scott. Most don't appreciate it until they've listened in person!

Aaron,
In your Cardomain site you mention the color as being Slate Green Metallic. How can I find out what they call the color of mine? It is a green metallic color and I can get the paint code from the trunk, then how do I cross reference to what GM calls that color?

Rickw,
I dont know how to cross reference GM colors and numbers.
I looked in the showroom here at rivperformance and didnt see where you authored a topic so I couldnt find your car to see it.
I believe the only green colors colors offered were Dark Autumn Green Stripe,Emerald Green Pearl,Light Green Crystal Stripe,Slate Green Pearl,I found this fm this site->
http://www.carsdirect.com/1998/buick/riviera/colors
look at my showroom pics, is yours the same as mine???
http://rivperformance.editboard.com/showroom-f3/finally-t4467.htm
Ibelieve mine is the 'Emerald Green Pearl'

I think mine is Emerald Green Pearl also. It looks like yours, except for the big dent in my driver's door.

Does yours have some metalflake in it?

I'll find out soon when I bring it in to have my door fixed, I'll get the paint code and run it thru that site you referenced.
Thanks

Fantastic color and definitely a fine Riv! I really like the way you handled your mods in a "stealth mode"...neat idea. My 97 was blue/grey metallic which was a color I didn't care for too much...was told by my wife it looked too much like an undercover cop car color (her's was a polo-"ish" green metallic color). I do miss my 96 & 97 Riv's, though.

The 95 has a Service parts Identification Label behind the right trim panel in the trunk. Paint code is on it.

You can find RPO code explanations online. I deciphered each of the service id labels on all my cars. Its great to have when you're trying to bring a restoration to "originally equipped".

Thanks, Ship! "Stealth mode" has taken on new meaning as my car is approaching 180k miles. The trick now is to keep the car looking much newer than it actually is! I think it would pass for having 60k miles, maybe less.

I never used an SLR chip, steve. If this is another one of those resistors that installs inline with the IAT sensor, then no, I would not do it. Total waste of money, and a possible way to damage your engine.

So I got an early birthday present yesterday. First investment I've made in the car in quite a while. Waiting till spring to put these babies on:

My 1998 SC Rivera - Page 2 EV5wheels1

My 1998 SC Rivera - Page 2 EV5wheels2

Once again, craigslist FTW. Enkei hyperblack 5-spokes from '06. Found them in northern KY for $500 including a half worn set of Potenza RE050A Y-rated tires ($226 ea at TireRack!), indicating these wheels were probably only run in the summer. Rims are in 90% perfect condition.

The plan is to run these tires bare at my first few autocross events in the late spring, then mount some less expensive 245/45/18s for summer duty.

Snow, you can go away at anytime...

Here's a photochop of what I'm hoping for:

That looks sick! especially with your paint color and yellow F-bodys.
How much do they weight?
i'm still not sure i believe our stock wheels are 28lbs, but i have no way to prove otherwise. most 18's are 23-25lbs.
and to whomever weighed a stock wheels which style was it? i've held the 12 spoke aluminum ones and they feel very light.

Thanks! Each wheel weighs 22.2 lb, and each tire will weigh 27 lb ea (current tires are 28 lb each). Total est weight will be ~ 49.2 lb per wheel, so I can believe our stock chrome wheels + tires are well over 50 lb. I'll weigh mine when I take them off.
