Well the plan is to take the Monte from what you have seen all the way down to just the frame and rebuild the rolling chassis and put her all back together with LOTS of new stuff and going completely retarded with OEM.

 

From This....

Now THAT is a good plan! And when you are done, I'll fly you here and you can help me do mine. :rofl:


My late Uncle's 1971 Monte Carlo SS...

1 of 1919 produced, 1 of 147 produced
in Canada, 1 of 6 black on black produced
in Canada and 1 of 2 black on black with
buckets and console produced in Canada.

Lost in 1978 and Found in 2011.
The sorrow of what was once lost,
Is surpassed by the joy of it found.
What fuels us to persist in the search,
Are the memories that we hold dear.

I miss you Ron.

Darren when you do the exhaust on Mr. Monte how about keeping the mufflers level running down to the center like that Chevelle exhaust looks ugly.

Darren, how much more will your "remanufactured" Monte be worth? Sounds like a lot of time, effort and money when it's already in great condition as a survivor.

I hope it all goes well and you have a ton of fun doing it. I also like "stock, like from the factory" less bias belted tires.

The Frame Started off as Vaughns Frame and then went to Kris and now back to my place. After I picked up the frame from Kris I took it to the carwash here in town and blasted it with hot water and dried it off and prepped for Por-15.

 

With Larry's help I snagged these tires and had them shipped to me and mounted on the 15x7's, I will be going with the Derby caps and not the Disc brake caps you see here..

Hey Bob I used Por-15 alluminum paint for the silver and then the gold is Brake Caliper gold for high heat and sticks to metal so the can says. 

 

Yes Sam my Butt was sore from sitting on the concrete for a long time painting the frame     lol

yes the Mounts are por-15 stainless to stand out like Retentative Detailing Does :rofl:  and then even used gold cadium grade 8 bolts to hold them down.

I am unfamiliar with POR-15. Is it tougher than regular paint and does it go on bare metal or does it have to be primed?
