Headlights look like they are from a Z4.

I think just the fender flares and bigger tires and rims would be the perfect medium.

But not jacked bmw rims

Judging by the reflections in the paint my guess is for some of it they fabricated pieces of metal in their shop, welded them to the car, then used lead or bondo to fill the seams. It is possible to fabricate sheet metal body parts with hammers and anvils/wooden forms. They then probably cut off the hood just fore of the hood latch.

Consider installing clear flush exterior lamps (go on a junkyard safari) for the turning lights, which you might install ahead of the wheel openings, and amber turn signal repeaters aft of the openings.

Does anyone else know of any other pictures of Rivieras with fabricated body work? I would love to see them shocked

Why the hell don't they make kits like this for my car? I would pay DAMN good money to have my car look like that.

there are NO aftermaket parts for our riv's, why the hell not? ESPECIALLY when so many people want them for putting giant rims on.

There is at least one source for a Riviera front/rear bumper kit:

http://rivperformance.editboard.com/t5729-write-up-front-rear-bumper-modification

I'm sure Scott would gladly consider working with you if you are serious about paying good money. To answer your question, the reason we don't have more suppliers is that most Riviera owners are not willing to pay such a fee for this type of mod.

There are some aftermarket parts - wood grain dash kits, engine, and suspension kits are out there. Also DIY engine tuning software is available, which is not as easy to do for other many cars.

Those fender flares on the Russian Riv are nice! A little aggressive but I'm a fan. I think the Riv should have come with a more subtle set of those from the factory. Sort of what the Regal or century had. Oh well.
