The Riviera


We gutted the interior in a few hours. Seats removed, carpet out, headliner trims removed, package tray removed, rear 'door panels'. Found a few and I mean very Few rotten spots on the floorpan, on the drivers side. I can get some sheetmetal and 'splice' in patches and make it look good. Someone has taken the interior apart before. The back seat wasnt bolted in except for one screw on the back. I didnt find much money, only $.26 and the quarter was from 1974, shucks.

On day two of interior stripping we removed the dash and center console. I got the rear passenger window out. Slowly we are getting it torn down. Its coming along well. I remind myself that I have all the time in the world and dont want to rush this.


How long have we been working on it??
