Hey hometown, was wondering where you got your dashkit from. I have the same interior color and LOVE they way that looks. Would definitely like to look into getting something like that.

Shit i will have to do some digging on that 1 man. I remember i found it on ebay and I think it cost me a little over $250USD. There were alot of choices through him, I opted for the titanium burlwood, but I also really liked the black onyx kit they offered as well. I will try and find some more info.

I was thinking about going with these guys, im looking at the Carbon Fiber, I think it would look good with the dark interior. Anybody have any experience with these guys? http://www.carid.com/1995-buick-riviera-wood-grain-dash-kits/sherwood-53551.html

I had thought about carbon fiber as well. But I really don't like the carbon fiber dash in my brothers Envoy, it looks really cheap in a "luxury vehicle". I thought the wood grain, or the piano black onyx finish would really add some class. Carbon fiber is best suited in a Ferrari or Lambo IMO.

Hometown, I think your car looks spectacular, and I love the interior, sound system, and rims. Thanks Fastbuick for putting up the link to the dash site! So badass!

Thanks for the comments guys. I actually don't have the Soundstream tarantula amps in there anymore (I'm prolly gunna sell them both for about $600 they are mint) I got the swap out finished that I was talking about in "Kicking it Old school" thread. So its all old school hand made Rockford Fosgate Power amps from 1999 in there now. I changed the TRX4.880 out for a Power 800a4 and swapped the TRX2000D for my Power 1100a2. The Tarantulas are rated at more power but only when dipping down past 2 Ohms ( I'm only running 2 Ohms), The RF are actually more powerful at 2/4 Ohms than the tarantula's are. The RF amps are also tested at 13.8V not at 14.4V so the numbers are a little more accurate. I haven't even hooked up the remote punch bass yet on the RF amps and they are just as loud so far. It will only get better. yay

added some new auto porn to the threads initial post. Enjoy...

PostSubject: GIVING THE RIV SOME OVERDUE TLC   Wed Mar 18, 2015 2:00 pm

So my Rivi sat for going on three years due to an overly large fleet of vehicles and babies. Finally it took my truck and quad being stolen last month to envoke my desire to repair the car I love which unfortunately has began falling from grace.
to do list:
-new plugs
-new t-stat
-new lower ball joints
-new control arm bushings
-new torque seal (ouch frown)
-new master cylinder
-new aluminum powder coated valve covers (95 camaro)
-new abs pump assembly
-possibly new MSD coil (has stumble under accel,thinking either cracked plug or coil issue)
-new rack assembly
-new t/c switch
-new subwoofer

And then a polishing and she'll be back to full form ride

I want to keep the MSD coil packs. I work at an auto wrecker so parts to diagnose it with cost me nothing as far as parts go. I just got the valve covers yesterday cost me $50CAN for the pair, they will be dropped off this weekend for powder coating. happy If you guys need parts let me know I have Hollander so I can locate you anything you need in North America.
