Thanks it took a lot of work to get it this way!

Yes, it is real Burlwood, the wood is a very thin slice between the 3M tape on the back and the finish on the front, but it is a real wood dash kit. From problems that others have posted about other dash kits on this site I think it was the best way to go!

Yes, I painted the trim also. The tag in the trunk didn't list the trim color so I picked one that is very close, it is probably a shade or two different than original but pretty close. It was kind of a pain since '95 was the only year that offered two different trim colors.
I used SEM canned paint, my brother that is the painter said that he remembered the guy at the paint shop he worked at used it, so it must be good stuff? Coverage was real nice and other than my line not being exact, hardly noticeable, it turned out good thumbsup

They don't make it go faster, but they look good! .. at least I think so.

OH? .. I didn't think your Riv has been running since you joined this Forum?!?
If it isn't Running,


HOW CAN IT BE FASTER?

The truth doesn't hurt me a bit!

No, I must have missed that video.

Of course I pretty much ignore most of yours and Ilanís posts, even though you and he seem to be the resident experts on everything Riviera related at the ripe old ages of 16 and 18.
I do appreciate the compliments on work I have done to my Rivs and usually acknowledge those, but pretty much everything else I just ignore. I havenít figured out if you and he just post to get your counts up or what, but I usually just let it go and donít mess with it.
I know I donít do any performance mods but I think I have contributed a good bit of information to the forum on the things that I have posted.
At one point I almost started a thread asking if ďAnyone else tired of the palermocorey90 and IBx1 show?Ē That we seem to have going on here, but I didnít.

Anyway, glad you finally got your Riv running. thumbsup

thank you, and i understand why you don't do performance, you keep them original to keep the value. i mean the 95 there's next to no market, and silver arrows there a limited production, so you would want to keep them orginal.

Just thought I'd put a picture of the new paint job here in the showroom. This is what it turned out like after getting it all back together and Gwyn and I detailing it for several hours for the show at the ROA Meet.

It still needs a coat or two of polish but it turned out pretty good overall ... not too bad for years worth of work!
( Good enough to win 1st place in your class, my brother! bow )

They are out there.
I'm pretty sure that the guy that had them on eBay when I got mine was raising his prices right after I got'em. His listing went real quick and when I e-mailed him he said he was going to since they sold so well!
