I like the black stock rims. did you paint them? im in the process of powder coating mine black, havent decided if im going to use chrome or black lug nuts yet

Yes and no.... They came painted em black like that, the PO painted em kuz the center caps fell of and he lost them. But I repainted them flat black after the paint started chipping off some. So now I just go over them with flat black every month lmao

the lugs on there are chrome, but I just flat blacked them lol.....

Sound problem has been fixed.

I'd like to see vendetta's car, but I''m tired of waiting on the images to load. I'll just take everyone's word that it's nice.

At least one of your images measures 1984 x 1488 pixels. That's about 27.5" wide on my screen.

I use my iPod to view a lot, so if the images are that big, or they take too long, I just pass them up until I can get to a faster machine. I do use dial-up at home, so although you can post whatever you like in your Showroom, keeping them under 720 wide (our official limit) is appreciated. I may be the last dial-upper in the world, but portable devices are slower, and becoming pretty common.

The Riviera was the original GS, back in '65. Regals didn't offer the GS option until 1990. So, depends on how you define "poser".

I think it looks slick.

I definitely swing the other way... I've been thinking of leaving the supercharged badge off... so they'll never know what hit em!

They won't know what hit em anyway, since nobody knows what a Riviera is in the first place... happy

That's all right. Once I was talking to my future father-in-law about politics, and said, "I find myself riding the fence sometimes." He had a good time making fun at me that night!

I added a 1/4 black pin stripe downt he side. over what appeared to be a maroonish painted on pinstrip that was faded. ill get pics soon

I also took off the grill to clean it and I went to the store to check out those chrome slats for the custom look, I hate chrome, so I decided against it. But it is much cleaner now, and I actually like the way it looks with no grille! but ill figure out what im going to do to the grille yet.....

oil change is coming soon, and so is a supercharger oil change.

Edit: picked up some autolite copper 104's too, 10 dollars and some change aint bad.... and the guy at oreillys gave me a free spark plug gapper kuz it had no UPC. bonk

I for sure like the red engine cover...
Now you just need red coils smile

..Actually, you could paint them easily, I did mine one at a time so I wouldent get the wires messed up. A bit of masking around the top, let it sit flat on newspaper, and give it a spray. Just a couple of screws and they come out really clean.
