Dan, the progress looks great. I had the rear fender moulding come off while I was replacing the inner fenders. I don't think the former owner used the correct moulding clips. The middle clip was missing and I don't think the others are correct. They are pushin, are they correct? Is there a good source for a complete set of retainers?

If you're talking about the trim at the rear of the front fender, the original clips had studs with nuts, but push in clips would work. I've seen full sets on ebay, but you can buy singles there, too.

Thanks Dan, it seems like everything I touch on the car is wrong. I replaced the skirts and half of the bolts were wrong or missing. I will order a set and see what I find under the rest of the mouldings. Thanks again

LED in the dash lights? Nice and bright.

Nothing special about this Monte. No SS, no rare options just a super sweet car to drive and take me back to the good old days!

No, standard incandescent bulbs. I don't like them brighter than stock. I sometimes dim them some, anyway.
