Kevin's NASCAR Monte Carlo Project


The Coke Machine Project

Updated November 11, 2006
Please check periodically for updated information and photos

The Original "Coke Machine" was a Monte Carlo driven by NASCAR legend Bobby Allison in the early 70s. This team and others had a lot of success on the NASCAR race tracks with the First Generation Monte Carlo. FGMCC President Kevin Wiles is building a street legal replica of the #12 Coke sponsored Monte Carlo.

Rear Spoiler

Rear Spoiler

Rusted Lip Repair

New Rear Filler Panel

Rear Spoiler installed by The Konik's, Leo & Sue

Just about to get a new floor

New 10" Rims about to be wrapped in Goodyear's

Leo- Keepin' the morale of the garage very high...

The floor is in, just a bit of grinding to do

The Spoiler is starting to shape up.

Wheels Painted Sport Gold Metallic w/ Goodyear 275/60/15's

Floor Painted Medium Gray Semi-Flat, Roll Bar painted Gloss Black

Fabricated Dash installed and painted Ultra-Flat Black. Autometer Gauges.

The aluminum interior panels including door, rear door, sail panel, rear seat delete, package tray, and kick panel are installed.  Inner roof spatter painted

Trunk area spatter painted, trunk mount battery installed.

Hood pins on the trunk.

New Grant Steering wheel specially made to look like those used in Winston Cup cars.

I made a radius with a string and marker, rotating on a set axis, to cut out and widen the wheel openings.

The car has some sort of herculean springs, and once replaced or cut, will make the stance right.

NOW the stance is just right...

The much dreaded drum brakes, but at least all the components of the whole system is new...

The bumpers are going to be painted silver, so Jared grinded the rear bumper to give the paint something to bite to.

And here's the front bumper getting prepped by Jared.  It's fiberglass.

Here's a shot of the bumper after both epoxy and urethane high build primers, and block sanding.

Looks like liquid chrome.  COOL.

This was the best silver I could find.  Its called Silver Mica Metallic with Clearcoat. When the sun hits it, watch out!

I have started block sanding the high build primer.  This is hard work but red and gold is just around the corner!
