I need tips on restoring a car.


Recommended Posts

Just as it sounds, i have a 71'Buick Riviera(pics of one below), and am really itchin to fix it up, but it needs a LOT of work.

So far i have ordered a new floorpan set, minus trans tunnel, i have swapped a different 455 into it, it starts and runs like a champ, i put new brake lines in but they keep getting air in them, and i will need to re-do the whole interior, im looking for any tips you guys may have.

My first major problem is the trunk, its completely rusted out, the floor that is. i dont know how to fix it, honestly, i want to just weld a sheet of steel in, and call it a day, but i think i need to do more than that. keep in mind this car will have a "blowthrough" via the rear seat vent, with one 12" dc lvl 3 in a 4th order, and i want to hide a hifonics 1000/[email protected] and a hifonics 150/[email protected] ohms amp in it, with seleniums in the dash, rear deck, and doors, hidden of course, just something that will look stock, yet still scream... sorry, wondered off a bit, but i really need tips on how to fix the trunk floor before anything else. if it warms up i will take pics today, its freezing out, and it was like 90 yesterday.... fuckin missouri.

this isnt mine, of course, just showing the dont-knows what it they look like.

im taking out my passenger seat, battery is disconnected, going to unwire and take out the three amps, take out the 70+ lb box, then the platform so i can crimp 1 wire.

Almost as bad as those fegs that put those horns in their grills and roll down the street distorting the block....

to fix the rusted floor pan you pretty much have to cut the whole floor out depending on how bad the rust is, either buy or make a new one. align everything then weld it back in. im pretty sure youd have to take the body off of the car to do it so youd have to be careful not to twist the body once you take the floor out

The only way to delete your SMD account is for you crawl to steve meades door step on your knees and pleade for his forgiveness and acceptance to be released...He will either grant your wishes.....or choke you with a large piece of 0 gauge and electrocute you by hooking up a solid gold DC 12k at 0.000001 ohm and 10000 volts to your eye sockets and blow your head apart

You guys act like you have never clogged a toilet and ran around the bathroom frantically hoping it don't overflow.
