    Question on lug studs

    Hi Steve , quite the upgrade. LOOKS Great! I thought those wheels came with lug nuts to fit them. the studs you have should work with those wheels.

    In Utah, at a crossroad

    Welcome to the Club!! I've been down the same road, got mine and thought ,do I really want to do all the work on it and what would I have when finished. Well I'm here to say do the restore/build on it, you will not regret it. Also, that is a pretty rare color for a '72 and quite well optioned car from the pictures. Nice pictures too!

    Went To A Car Show/Cruise and WON

    Hi Rob, Good to hear your enjoying the new Air Conditioning! Winning is winning in my book. Have never won a 50/50 drawing as of yet.

    Sway Bar Size

    The question remains what size is the front sway bar you purchased. I'm looking at SPOHN performance out of Myerstown PA. on a set 1.250" front and 1.00" rear 4140 chrome moly for a mere $359.00 for both. Just wanted to know if 1.250" front is enough for our "large" cars.

    Sway Bar Size

    Let's talk about sway bar size, brand ,and how it changed the ride in our Monte's. I'm thinking of upgrading my current 1.125" front and .875" rear to a 1.250" front and 1 " rear. I've already improved on Control Arms (Thanks to imr), and am going to drilled, slotted rotors with wilwood 4 piston calipers. upgrading rear with disc brakes from 2002 Camaro. Thoughts on sway bars........

    Hello All from PA

    Welcome from upstate New York (finger lakes region) !! Pictures would be nice!
  8. Paul, Looking good!! Hope to see you at the 2020 Eastern Meet! My Favorite color too!!
  9. Beau, First off , Welcome to the Club!! Very rare and nice looking Monte! 2nd, you need to do a Monte of the Month write -up of this rare find. Sounds like you are into the First Gen Monte Carlo"s. Glad you joined "The Club"and provided pictures. There is a lot of good information from the people on this site. You guys in the mid-west find some rare cars, sometimes wish I never left Wisconsin, (I was the kid growing up in That '70's Show).

    Another wheel and tire ?

    I run A 5" backspacing on mine. as you can see, no issue with tire scrub on wheel well. Jeg's sells a rally with 15"x 5" BS
  13. Well, looks like mine is going to be down the rest of the year. They have started on my road out front and I am not driving on stones in my Monte. Learned this lesson coming down to Carlisle, Pa. a few years back. The last time they did our road it took them 6 months to finish(snow was flyin'). I will be upgrading brakes(disc in rear) , steering, and gauges. really wanted to be in Syracuse with it for the meet up there too, oh well. It's been since 2008 on the road, and needs a little attention.
  14. Looks like you are deep into the rebuild. Question on the hydroboost. when you last drove it ,how was the braking on it? I'm thinking of doing the same.
