The Riviera


We stripped the frame off all the suspension pieces for two reasons. The suspension bushings are all dry rotten and been sitting for 10 years with out any motion, so best to replace them. Its also covered in dust and the only way to really clean the frame is to strip it. Everything came apart without much fight. It just took alot of cleaning to get to the nuts and bolts. We pulled the frame outside and rinsed the inside of it. I was amazed at how much sand and rocks came out. Still alot of cleaning of grease, dirt and old paint to go but should be painting the frame soon. At this point we are 84 hours of labor into the rebuild.

How long have we been working on it??
