What did you do to your Monte Carlo today?

Recommended Posts

I have been working 12 hours a day pretty much 6 days a week at my new job at Delta Airlines as an Avionics technician and I finally had an 8 hour day and went to a local car show. It was good to socialize and get behind the wheel again.

Met a new/old knight today, went on a boat tour up here in the thousand islands and stopped at singer castle. There was a couple pretty cool knights there. Also I just had to get some crown royal :)

Replaced the upper ball joints,idler arm,pitman arm and installed the quick ratio steering box and best of all I drove it for the first time in 4 years. The carb needs some more tuning and the electric choke wired up but it runs.

Congrats on being able to drive it after 4 years.  It must have been a great feeling.

Been busy, had the 350 turbo swapped for a 2004r, swapped the rear gear for a 3:55 with an Eaton Trutrac posi unit, yanked the poly bushings out of the front end and put Moog rubber bushings and ball joints in its place. Car drives like a dream now.

Gave the donor body shell a bath to get ready for body work this fall/winter.  I couldn't believe how much sand came out of the rocker panels and all the floor braces and then how much mouse nest debris came out of all the structure around the roof.  Looks like the only rust repairs needed are drivers side outer cowl and some of the rear window channel.  No rust rot on floors, trunk, or quarter panels :yay:.

Wow, that is really a solid body.  Can't get much more rust free.  Keep the pictures coming.

This is what I finished doing yesterday.  I put some different seats, carpet and dash pad in my 70.  I think they are from a 72 and they are black and my interior is blue but I got them for a good price and they are in great condition compared to my ripped up cloth interior.  I will probably get my original seats redone in blue cloth at some point but for now this works out fine.

I also changed the oil and filter today.  I haven't driven this car much and didn't realize it had been 7 years since I had last changed the oil.  It only had 500 miles on the oil change and the oil still looked pretty new when I drained it out.
