Default Some treats for the Rivi just in time for spring!

well, this month is going to be really important to the Riviera. This week I plan to get my rims installed that finally arrived (I ordered them in December.) Then the first week of April I should be getting my front end repainted, and my exhaust installed, along with a fresh tune up. I plan on doing some under-the-hood cleaning and painting, mostly the 'rivera by buick' logo on the hood mat, and some wire loom maybe. After all that, I have an adapter to install so my steering wheel radio controls work with my pioneer cd player. Then it'* exterior and interior detailing, fresh coat of gold class wax and all. It'* pretty exciting!

They're a new brand called "rage." These rims were on backorder before production was even started on them from what I was told.

your rims are already the nice chrome ones, I would be more worried with the cancer on the front edge of the hood.

They're not so nice when all 4 leak 20 pounds of pressure a weak. also, I'm getting the hood repainted the first week of april at the same time I'm doing the exhaust. It'* not rust, it'* defective paint pealing off. It'll never rust because the hood is aluminum.

The rims are 16", the stock factory size. I just bought new tires and I didn't want to get new tires again. and shhhh the leaking rims is an excuse to buy new ones.
