    Engine paint

    I remember my 71 engine was a much Redder orange than older Chevy engines. About that time they started to remove the lead form paint and the new color may be a result of that. I worked at E.I. DuPont Automotive finishes in Michigan (in the 80's) and was able to mix my paint and I used the older formula and it was, is way more orange but I like it.
  2. My friend purchased a new 71 SS, after I got my 71 350, and he did NOT have bucket seats.
  3. Looks great! Thanks for the great pictures.
  4. Great looking 71 SS, welcome to the club! My friend had a tan 71 SS, but it was T Boned and totaled in 1977. Bruce
  5. Brian, just over 10 years ago I sent my non working clock from my 71 Monte to http://www.american-classic.com/ They are under new ownership since then. It still works fine but is a tad noisy, no big deal. I have a memory that when it arrived at my house the knob had fallen off. I called the company but they had me deal with a different company (I can't remember their name, but they actually did the work) to ask questions about the damage repair from shipping. $175.00 + shipping.

  6. Steffen, welcome! I like 71 Monte Carlo's and LOVE the SS 454, wish I had purchased one back in 71! Bruce Stange

    This is my original 71 H/L switch. Some replacements don't have the same configuration. FYI
  8. I use only Westly's Bleach white. I do not like the shiny waxed look.
  9. Great job! Thank you for all the time you spent so we can enjoy this! Bruce
  10. That's great! Keep us informed. Bruce
