When I'm in NC next time can I stop bye and do some routine maintenance and possibly some customization on my Riviera? Nice lift I am jealous could do all the things I need to get done on my car so much easier with that sweet lift!

Robo & Chris,
Come on over, not sure how much camping there will be, but plenty of scenery and maintenance going on. When not used for maintenance I’ll have more room to park some of what I have … OR …maybe enough space for one more?!?

wow...that`s a big garage...
When I built it eight years ago I planned to put a lift into it then, it is 28’X36’ and has 12’ ceilings. Even that isn’t enough for all the shit I have packed into it!
My garage is bigger cubic feet wise than my house, as it should be I believe!

I also got the casters with it so I could move it around as needed.

The instructions say it can be done with a friend or two in an afternoon or two! If I didn’t have the material lift I have there is NO way me and a friend would have been able to pick up the ramps and put it together! It was said that each ramp weighed around 300 pounds but I think it is way more than that. headbutt

It does work though, finally some help with storage AND working underneath the Riv whenever necessary. yay

This is the second lock from the top, easy to work under and it leaves 65” under the ramps to pull another Riv in.

Plenty of room above when you build your garage with 12’ ceilings!

Now I understand the meaning of Garage Queen.

Nice.

I'm remembering to spec 12' ceiling in my (next) car hangar.

I am assuming that a full 1% of the Silver Arrow population is sitting one on top of the other right now...

They used to be available from the dealership but I’m sure they are not any more. That one is a CoverCraft Brand, I just did a search of a couple of websites and they do advertise that they have them but they sure have increased in price! I got mine around 12 years ago for right around $80 and now the custom fit indoor/outdoor covers are selling for $365 … OUCH! headshot

Actually no, the one under the cover is my Black ’95, the second Silver Arrow I have pretty much sits outside. Until I get some improvements made to it parking it outside is not going to cause it any more wear than it was getting before I got it. Eventually I plan to do something with it but for now it just stays under the carport.

LOOKS GREAT Randall! It would be a dream to have a lift in the garage, don't have the funds or height in there to do it at the moment. Definately jealous though, about the lift and the cars. sick Ditto on the car cover, looks cool!

I figured I would get this shot of the two Silver Arrows to send to BackYard Buddy, sending in a picture with it in use gets me a $250 rebate and how better to show it in use than with two of the last Rivieras! rock

Randall,
You should consider sending in the photos and a write up of your assembly to Ray to be included in the Riview.

I have been in contact with Ray about other things and sent him a picture of the lift in use, he didn't reply asking for anything like a story since it isn't really Riviera specifically related. It might be something for the classifieds or the like but not a real story for the magazine?
