Default First time Restoration

Hi, I purchased a 1974 Monte Carlo. The body is OK. It needs lots of TLC. I thought this would be a great introduction into the restoration world.

Welcome, sounds like a nice project! I've been searching for an older Monte Carlo and have come across some nice 2nd gens during my search.

Awesome, I restored my 1965 Impala, you will be thrilled when done. Just make sure to label EVERYTHING you take off, for future reference, I was sure glad I did! Look in my garage, I posted a few pictures of the Impala before it looked like it does now, took about 10 years.

Just don't 10 years to do it, act with the utmost urgency, they need that vehicle to be up and operational ready for combat against the Mustangs.
