Hello!

I drive 1995 Riviera SC 116k almost 2 years, have done many-many repairs and beginning to tune tech a bit.

Improvements:
Monroe Sensatrack struts
R1Concept exclusive front rotors
EBC Red Stuff brake pads
18` summer 5-spoke wheels
255/45 R18 Pirelli Asymmetric tyres
black leather front panel

Nice to join you!

Welcome,
What kind of head unit is that installed in your dash.
Is it a GPS also.?
How about some more information and pic's of the install.
Nice color combination on the car, Black with Burgundy looks very nice.

"looks like you need new hood lifters" - already shipped ))

Head unit is Prology DVD, but it`s a goo in fact, I`m going to change it

Yes, dashboard and steering wheel covered whit black lether.
But the upper dashboard glares too much. I saw very nice Riviera dashboard cover -

I put the DashMat brand in mine, but our dash-top is so simple I think anyone would be able to make a decent fit.

Only one is all of Motherland- That is awesome!!! BTW, those shorts leave little to the imagination shocked

\"looks like you need new hood lifters.\"
The hood prop is a factory Buick option only

Looks to be. Is that a Ford LTD in the background?? At a car show?? rotf
Also, did 95 have metal seat belts (female end) in the US? Mine have plastic surround. Just wondering.

Yes, and I think maybe '96 had them. I'd like to replace mine with the metal ones.

I purchased a dash cover a while ago with the hopes that it would eliminate or reduce the glare that comes off these dashes to the windshield.
But, I found the dash cover, made from some kind of carpet, nylon/rayon maybe, caused more glare than without it. So much so that I couldn't hardly see through the windshield.
Needless to say i returned it and have been taking Deekster's advice and driving with polarized sunglasses, sometimes even at night to help with the glare of oncoming cars. It seems to work for me.
I wouldn't waste my money on a dash cover, just buy some good sunglasses.

That is true, the "cut-pile" carpet can actually reflect each little tip in the windshield. I find it less obtrusive than the glare from the factory dash, but if I were to buy another one, I'd buy one that is "loop-pile" or indoor/outdoor style carpet...
