I had this well used Dr. Grabow Riviera in the parts basket and decided to work on it to see if I could put some new life into it.

Did some rustication below the bowl band while maintaining the stampings. All natural briar, no stain, no dye, just White Diamond and Carnuba.

Dude you are a sick, sick man! Taking something that looks ready for the rubbish bin and making it look that good! I'm constantly amazed at the talent on this forum. Excellent restoration and I hope she smokes as good as she looks sir!

Looks as if the doctor went back for some post-graduate work and got another degree ... nice.

She sure is fine looking now.

Great work, as usual, Coastie.

Damn, she is sweet.

Haven't seen Coastie post in a while. Hope all is well with him. Good egg.


Cheers.
