3 degrees this morning, 30 mph gusts. Snow, sleet, and freezing rain yesterday with power loss for four hours. Not going anywhere.

Good! Catching up. These have been sitting broken and unloved for at least 3 years.

Made one good Riviera out of two. A runner from the left overs. Transferred interior and bumpers from one with broken body/frame attachment points to a good body/frame with solid points.

I wish I had clamps like that (meaning the scale) in our bodyshop at work. Would be nice to clamp a panel on a bus with only one clamp and not 5-8! I love watching you work as I already know the outcome will be nothing short of amazing!

Ha. Mark D. has a much better solution that he posted about a couple of weeks ago. I just used tongue depressors cut to shape and glued on with plastic cement. I did not know that Testor's plastic cement worked so well on wood until I tried it awhile ago. Holds like epoxy wood to plastic.

Were this a better example, I would have spent more time on it. It will either be a runner or just sit. Not worth getting bumpers for -$90 BIN on ebay, or another interior. I already have two other nice Rivieras. The one with stripes is as found otherwise. Looks like some kid applied the stripes, but it's campy and I like it.
