  1. That is my concern. I’ve read somewhere that the dies for the fenders were destroyed. If that is truly the case then someone has made a substantial investment in die’s. And if that is the case then I believe they will eventually come to market. Time will tell. It would be nice to have a source for a quality replacement.
  2. Doesn’t look like it. Restoparts looks like the supplier and they don’t have them either.
  3. I agree, what I would like to see is the back/inside of these. If anyone has purchased them maybe they could shed more light on this. Thanks for the replies.
  4. Has anyone purchased or seen these fenders? What are y’all’s thoughts on them? Their Part# M240305-PR.
  5. I removed the control panel when I changed the heater core and the black backer was indeed the problem. I trimmed it down and it lights up just like it’s supposed to. Thanks for the solution!
  6. I got my first Monte when I was 18, for a graduation gift. Although I had to pay it off. My Mom and Dad bought it new in Dec 1969. It was white with black vinyl top and fender skirts. Skirts were the first thing to go when I got it. LOL This was 1972. Wish I had kept it. You have a beautiful car. Congrats on the anniversary.
  7. Welcome Eric. Beautiful car. I bet it sure turns some heads in Germany. I'm guessing you guys and gals have car shows there, if so, are there many American classic Cars there?
  8. Finally changed the steering gear box. Then it was on to the heater core. Man is that a job. Got a new core from O'Rielly's and it fit perfect. Heater box was in great shape other than the dried up anti-freeze from the leak. Cleaned it all up and reinstalled it. I have to say going back in was the hardest for me. Getting it to stay in place to get a nut started would have been much easier with two people. I did remove both bucket seats and the rear seat along with the console. I took all the carpet and insulation out and power washed it. Will be putting it back in today after I finish sewing 2 dozen hats for a customer and cleaning the fish I caught yesterday. Gonna be a long day! Thanks to all that shared info on the core change out. That made it much easier.
  9. Thanks for that information. I’ll check that. I’ve never had it apart but it does seem to be misshapen.
  10. It is just the A/C control panel that is not illuminated. All other lights come on with the headlight switch, and will dim. The one bulb that I fond on the rear of that control panel housing is lit up. Also I have Dakota Digital gauge package and it works fine.
  11. My control panel will not light up when the headlights are turned on. Is there more than one bulb for this? The bulb that I found on the right, back side Is illuminated but it doesn’t light up the panel. How does this work? Is there supposed to be a reflector in there? Or is there another bulb I’m missing? Maybe on the bottom? Thanks for any help, Rodney
  12. Got her back to the house after engine swap and FiTec install. She was idling in the garage while I put The trailer up. When I got back to her I saw a big puddle of antifreeze on the floor. Heater core is leaking! Arg. And I thought my boat was a black hole for money. LOL
  13. Well now, since this was brought up, I have a question. I’m going back to factory exhaust manifolds and bought the spacer. I can’t seem to find what side it goes on. I seem to remember it being on the driver side. It would make sense as there is more room there on the big block cars. So which side? Thanks, Rodney
