    MEMBER CHECKING IN

    I know everyone is volunteer and busy but approximately how long does it take to be accepted? I did mine a couple of weeks ago and still says waiting to be accepted on group spaces ? Thanks all.

    Welcome!! I am new also so feels weird saying welcome. I too just started my restore on my Monte I have been waiting years to get. There is great info and a great group on here that will keep you motivated and believe it or not they most likely are as excited as you. It doesn't look that bad at all honestly. If you wash it , it would probably look pretty decent. Good luck to you !

    Thank you .. just got back on track after stripping the roof all back down again right down to the seams cleaning window channels again. Used zero rust under the filler and the primer and it lifted , didn't trust it any more so I took it all back out. A couple days of rework, but feel better about it now got the roof reprimed tonight and started a little seam sealer.Hopefully back on track now , a couple more pics.

    Almost have it all primed , most of the blocking done , then onto the front fenders and hood. A little setback when we primed the roof. I used zero rust on the roof probably applied it a month and a half ago and when I primed over it, it lifted. Wont be using that again. Scraped it all off with razor blade. Will be removing all the filler where the quarter meets the roof because I believe it is under there also. Also around the rear window and the top of windshield . Not taking any chances now, will stick with what I know was trying something different. Will probably end up priming sealing and painting and putting vinyl over that.

    Took some pics today of passenger side cowl no plug on that side , but you can see from the front there is quite a gap that water could escape from, but I believe that should have seam sealer in there that I may have cleaned out other than determining if and where there should be a drain hole in the cowl , cowl is all stripped will scuff and prime tomorrow(Saturday)

    Yes James, I am wondering now if I should have just did frame off, but someone did a decent job before cleanest bottom side of the floors I have seen and are painted the body color of the car and frame real clean. As far as the grommets in the cowl checked both sides don't see any rubber grommet. I will check again and can take a pic of passenger side . Short of where the seam sealer should go there is no opening that I can see. I will want to put something in there though to let water drain out if I get caught in rain or wash it etc . but you are correct Steve it wont see any weather or tree droppings again. It actually does have new vent covers so someone did replace after all that crap got in there I guess. Anyway more pics below of the work tonight ,cut out some more sandblasted and more or less finished up my surprise find in the cowl. Sandblasted and found a little more . Just a little and cut that out too welding in the patches Pretty much finished will prime, seam sealer and dress it up better than factory even though you wont really see it I will be able to sleep knowing that more corrosion is gone .

    Thanks again all .. and Steve just looked up the Syracuse Nationals , would love to make it there and hopefully have it done by then. So a couple more pics digging into it tonight and some questions .I found there was a old mouse nest and leaves etc..in the cowl and rotted the cowl out, cut it out will sandblast and patch it. My question is does anyone know if there should be a drain hole there at the bottom ? Neither the passenger side or this side looks like it drains and seems like it should . Thanks for the help. Look what I found. cut out the bad the rest is solid will sandblast and patch. Good news its behind the fender on the cowl so no major body work

    Hey all, My name is Patrick, from upstate NY near Albany,new member (I think) I have been on here for years but finally just joined as I actually have a monte again. Had one about 12 years ago and had to get rid of it, finances not right at the time. I may have joined then, but don't remember. Now I shopped around and finally picked up a 71. Untouched for the most part motor untouched has been repainted and had some quarter repair. Not because of rust but look like it got hit and repaired. Pretty solid car for the most part , not as many surprises as I thought . Will try to post some pics as I progress. Its going to go black , black vinyl top and interior going to buckets as well. Probably not all at once but as finances allows. Inspired by all the work and knowledge you guys have on here. So I will post and will wait for you guys to tell me where I am going wrong LOL. Hope to meet some new people on here too and hopefully hit some of the meets and swap stories . Thanks for looking. Patrick the day I brought home about 2 hours after I brought home needed the rallys and tires on it. Untouched under hood Lost timing chain out it comes threw this together till we build the original with parts we had around Loosing some originality .. mixed emotions about this.. Winters here time to start stripping,hoping to get ready for paint by spring AKA Mayish, relatively clean woops here is a little by back window (typical) 3 rounds of blocking hopefully getting ready for sealer and paint, moving on to other areas
