  1. While perusing the Internet I came across an Ad offering a 72 Monte Carlo. While looking over pic's, I noticed there was no radio and was covered with a Delete Plate? Never seen one before! Was this a factory option? Doug
  2. Do a search for Cal Cover and Cover King. Both are top line Covers that you can select the one you want for that application. I have a Cover King Indoor on mine. Both are made to resist scratching/swirling................ Doug
  3. Love the color, especially in the Sun lite. Very well represented 1st Gen. & Welcome to Our Madness. Doug
  4. Latest update, Rev. 16. Please review and advise if updates needed.1972 MONTE CRLO CUSTOM NUMBERS REV. 11.0 JPG.xls
  5. I have used it on my Frame and applies well with the Frame clean. Only drawback I see is when I end up getting more on me than the vehicle . Also, POR 15 does not work well when in sunlight as the UV rays attack it. When I replaced my rear bumper, I painted the backside of the Bumper everywhere right up to the chrome and after 7/8 years, it is still as nice as when I installed it. Also, due to cost, you should purchase small cans as it goes a long long way and when done, sealing that Can back up is impossible and the contents will dry out if left sitting for to long. I've used cellophane
  6. There are several separate Bulbs behind the Instrument Cluster Gauges. Each one luminates separate from the other but work thru your Headlight Switch and also the Circuit Board Ribbon has that current needed flowing thru it. Likely in your Headlight Switch and I would start there myself (if all Instrument cluster lights are showing dead) with headlight switch on. I am assuming you have Power otherwise? Good Luck................. I'm a betting man and am sure others have their suggestions that will chime in............ Doug
  7. I always figured they were either installed with all 3 or none. I had none in my 72, but when I had the Dash off, I went ahead and installed them with shut offs. A little added chrome and made it appear a little busier in the Cabin. I liked that................... Doug
  8. Anyone seen this Ad for a 71 SS? Other than the Price , did anyone notice the A/C center vent in Dash has the manual shut off, but the Side Dash Vents don't! Did they mix and match or is this not original? I know 1970 had them and at least some 71's. Just curious ..................... https://www.ebay.com/itm/1971-Chevrolet-Monte-Carlo-SS-454/264591438598?_trkparms=aid%3D888008%26algo%3DDISC.CARDS%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20200220090753%26meid%3D91ec94bfb8ad4d96b3a1544c8cee56a7%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D284044719888%26itm%3D264591438598%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3
  9. Thanx Dave. Will make those adjustments and thanx again for noticing. Doug
  10. Thanx for the Heads Up Anthony. I will get right on that and thanx again for noticing. Unsure why I was so far off on it, Doug
  11. 1972 MONTE CRLO CUSTOM NUMBERS REV. 11.0 JPG.xlsNew update on Custom Numbers. Gotta couple more added and is Rev. 15, dated 10/11/2020. Still incomplete info on a car or two but overall what has been identified. Please review your info and advise if needed amended. Again appreciate your willingness to offer up the info. Doug
  12. Hey Darren,

    Interested in adding your 72 Custom onto my Data Base.  Any chance I can have your Vin# and if Build Sheet?  I have added the info you provided in your Post but would like to have these 2 things as well.

    By the way, earlier on shortly after I started compiling this info, you gave me a heads up on a 72 Custom you knew about.  Would this be that same vehicle as I don't want to duplicate any of them, thus my r3equest for the VIN#.  I think you described that one as a Midnight Bronze, 402 TH400 car and did not have near the options of this one.

    Appreciate your reply and trust you are doing as well as can be expected.  You Take Care............


  13. Gorgeous Darren! How do you find them . Is the Passenger Sport Mirror Factory? I'm guessing it is. How about providing via (PM) Me your Cars VIN#, adding it to my Data Base? Haven't heard much from you & hoping your Health Issues have stabilized for you. Stay Strong and keep those Finds of your coming Doug
  14. Try following the wiring from the Source to their respective connections and verify. I am assuming it is a Factory Tach Dash with the Temp & Fuel gauges over/under on Dash? They worked before Engine work tells me they are not connected properly or is one heck of a coincidence. That's my take and Good Luck................. Doug
