shave the sides of the riv? or do you have an imp too?
i vote no for the riv, but it's b/c i like the stock look and i would want to keep it original and conservative.
some pics after you do it might change my mind though wink
can anyone PS a riv smooth?

I think it would look ok w/o the side rub strips. Mine have been beat up a bit, right side in particular. Go ahead and experiment for us. smile

I'd keep the rub strips unless you are going to park your car and only show it. The sheetmetal would take a beating! hammer

It will make the car look heavier and not as long, like a Cadi DTC. Not against it, though. Could look really nice if done right.

Now I know how much I'm appreciated around here. rolleyes twisted

I pchopped this idea over a year ago -

Rocker Moulding Riviera_roadster_back

Rocker Moulding Riviera_roadster_front_silver_wallpaper

The side I could have done a better job on -

Rocker Moulding Riv_roadster_side

Somebody printed these off and was going to show them to Boyd Coddington but I guess that never happened.

I'm all for removing the rub strips, but it will mean a visit to the PDR guy every week. But removing the rub strips is just the beginning of what could be done.

agree
Definitely looks good. The side view makes it look longer for some reason, even without the moldings. Maybe because the top is gone?

It's because the back seat is covered. It's looks like an El Camino or something because it's so long behind the doors. I think it would look much better with the top on and no rub strips. I'm not feelin' it, but hey, if you like it, build it. Who cares what anyone else thinks. BTW, I park waaaayyyyy out there and I still get marks on my rub strips. I can't image not having the protection.

It looks good, but it's only a start. The next thing is custom bumper covers. The stock ones stick out too far. And shaved door handles.

I wonder how hard it would be to chop the roof?

I was just thinking today how the new Enclave bronze would look on a car. I really think it would be a stunner.

I'd love to see it chopped please. bow Anyway you can chop mine? That's my plan for next year. I've been told chopped rides don't do well as daily drivers so I'm hoping to park mine once I do it and make it a fair weather ride.

There are no exterior styling differences between the years, except for the 200 1999 Silver Arrow cars that have an arrow emblem instead of an "R" emblem. If it's on your car, we've all got it.

I think there were certain wheels that were only available on the early non-supercharged cars.
