  1. Question for the experts, will a factory sport steering wheel from a 79 camaro fit on my 71 Monte?
  2. Thanks Leo! I'll pass your number forward.....

    Coolant reservoir

    This isn't exactly stock but it was cheap & effective. O'Reileys Auto Parts has these universal tanks for about $8 and a piece of aluminum 1/2" stock from Home Depot for $3 or $4

    Need bucket seat suggestions

    Michael, I just search on Craig's in Minneapolis at found these from a 72 Monte https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ank/pts/d/70-to-72-monte-carlo-parts/6656034395.html
  5. Not sure if the 72 Monte's had this style of seat belt but my close friend has a 72 Malibu convertible, low miles, excellent car. One of the seat belts exploded. I have since learned that is the nickname of this particular belt (Exploders) as GM only installed for less than a year as failed testing miserably...… Let me know if anyone has any?
  6. https://phoenix.craigslist.org/cph/pts/d/monte-carlo/6678037753.html thought maybe someone would be interested as I found here in Phoenix...…….

    Yes Terry, there is chrome on that front edge of the slats. I've refurbished 2 of them and its a bit of work since we're dealing with pot metal. I also hand painted the vertical bars satin black after spraying everything else the stock silver. A simple trick to cover the chrome edge is to use a crayon on the chrome edge, rubbing a good layer of the waxy coating only on the chrome edge. After the paint is dry, you can then rub off the crayon wax. I've used a wooden tongue depressor to rub off the crayon as it won't scratch the chrome. Good Luck!
  9. Chris, as mentioned above, cut the coils. I cut about one full ring off my front coils and it dropped one inch. I have a 1" coil spacer under the rear cargo springs. Might be the solution for you..............
  10. Hey Vince, here's a few photos in the stock configuration. Good Luck!

    1971 Monte Carlo Interior upgrades

    NIce job Brian. Good luck.......
  13. Thanks for the clarification Chris. I did not realize that the Shift works kit was different than the OEM version. I'don't replace the PCB as previously mentioned, good luck!
  14. Chris, when converting to gauges the PCB must be changed out as with several changes to the main cable connection. I've done 2 of these upgrades and even changed the location of gauges, modifications to the PCB & connector are a must. Good luck!
