You can tell real craftsman by the way they space their tacks -- they use TIG for their metalwork..... and their precise fit up.

When you're OCD about your tack welds...

The day I started using a TIG welder my MIG began collecting dust.

RS6 heritage wheels with polished outers, matte black inners (instead of gold as seen here) and polished Flush-loc converted hex cap just like this. You're welcome.

Hello,

Joined just to follow this (and the referenced older Riviera builds) since I've been working on my own less dramatic '64 Riviera project. I've also been relaying the pictures to the Riviera Owners Association board. We'd like to know if you weighted the original frame and floor pans and then the replacements?

Also here's my suggestion for wheels, though the Rushforth Salt Shakers are very good looking.


Budnik Muroc III's though with a blacked out web vs. the matte web shown. Any of the Muroc's look a lot like the original road wheels but I think the III's have the best balance of features vs. the II or the IV.

Welcome to Lat-G !!


I certainly hope your Rivi club isn't as bad about cutting up cars as NCRS is about a guy even changing a wire....LOL

If they are - Poor Charley might receive death threats!

Yeah, there are some over there who really enjoy pointing out why everything in the world is wrong. There are also some very nice and helpful people as well. Overall they are very polite, making for some fun discussion.
