I used the Sherwood kit. It has labeling for all the switches. i found it easier to remove the dash panel and install the kit. Even so, very difficult to get it EXACTLY perfect.

Yes, at least remove the dash. You really don't want to screw up on the dash, and it would be a nightmare to appy the piece over the instrument cluster with the dash installed. I'd pull all the parts getting a trim piece though. Those triangular vent pieces on the door are tough too!

While collecting the interior, decided to show my first project. This GAZ 21 Volga, 1968, engine 2.5 L.

The restoration lasted 3 years. The authenticity of 95%.

If it is impossible to write about it in this thread, please move to another topic. I don't know how to do it. I can show photos of full restoration.

I use the Volga at the weekend. But soon there'll be less to drive it. Riviera is almost ready!

Hello everyone. Bought the Riviera after the fire. The interior is completely destroyed. Engine running and gearbox fine. The car was set on fire, thrown in a bottle of fuel mixture. I had to go 3500км (about 2000 miles) to pick her up. Hood, trunk, bumper and optics are in the van. Now disassemble the car for parts.

Is that the Riv you just finished, or a new project?

I bought this car in order to have spare parts. In the future they can be useful. The price of $300. The cost of the hood with shipping from USA to Russia is about the same amount.

It is a pity that this car died, he brought a lot of joy to the owner!
