Welcome aboard! After checking out the chassis like AA suggests, if all looks well, a good place to scavenge ideas would be the "showroom". It may take awhile but you'll find pretty well everything that could be done to improve the overall appeal of the Riviera. wink

here's a great example...

scroll to pages 30,31 for finished product.

get rid of the power seats.together they weigh close to 130 pounds. and never allow fat people in the Riv.The Riv hates that!

The point is you have a 17-year-old car and you need to be sure it's tight before you spend $$$ on "making it pretty" only to find you need some serious work done and are tapped out of cash.
