    Aluminum Radiators

    I went with this one from Engineered-products because I liked their write-up on how it cools better then others. Be sure to scroll down and read their info. No issues since installed. https://www.ebay.com/itm/THE-BEST-1970-1971-1972-1973-1974-Monte-Carlo-Aluminum-Radiator-NO-3-ROW-JUNK/392088719513?fits=Year%3A1970|Model%3AMonte+Carlo&epid=3021747170&hash=item5b4a4f1099:g:IhsAAOxyzGlQ8IWJ:sc:UPSGround!18034!US!-1 Good luck!!

    My '70 SS454 build

    Look on the light side, no one was hurt and your car wasn't totaled like mine was. Hagerty is great to work with and will treat you right. Sorry to hear about your accident. Mike
  7. Hey Paul, Sorry to hear about the deer incident. I had a bunch of them run into the side of my 70 about 20 years ago. I guess you could say I got hit by deer. It pretty much sucks. I just got back from a ride in my 72 Corvette and you are correct. A Corvette would be worse. If I can help with some parts let me know. Mike

    what to use

    Hey Willie, I've done sandblasting in the corner of one of my garages on similar smaller parts.. That way I was also able to clean the area first and reuse the sand again in the blaster. I used simple screening material to filter the non-sand particles before using the sand again. After that I sprayed the pieces with Rustmort to stop the rust. Then painted with POR-15. Good luck!! Mike

    10-12 bolt posi

    One of my 70 Montes came originally with a bop 2- something open rear and i converted it to a 3.55 posi pretty easily. A club member helped me with the conversion with parts and instructions. All I needed to purchase was the posi unit, new ring gear and some shims. The pinion did not need to be touched. Maybe someone in the club can help you do the same. I didn't know anything about rears and did the conversions by myself over the weekend. Good luck!! Mike

    Restoration Recommendation

    There is a place in Quakertown that does top notch restorations on muscle cars. I have not used them myself but I have seen their cars. One of their finished cars appeared in the April 2017 edition of Hemmings Muscle Cars (a 70 Chevelle SS). Here is their info: Troy Thornton Muscle Cars (610) 282-2494 Good Luck!! Mike

    hagerty insurance

    I think the last time I did mine I did it online. I requested an adjustment and gave the reasons why. No issues. They are a great company to deal with.
