You dont even know. The person that owned it before me trashed the car.

Yes... The side panel was cut out. I have a parts Monte Carlo that I had to cut out the same panel, weld it, grind it, make it look like it did.

No its the hole where the trim went into. I took it out and filled it in. I didn't like the side trim.

No way, wow what a project you got yourself into for sure. But hell $500 is a snag ad from all the wrenches I can see your no stranger to getting dirty.

There was a member on here before who had a lime green Monte, wonder if this was his? I actually liked the color, kind of a "In your Face" When I saw the other members, I said to myself that's not a bad color at all, kind of cool really.

You have put forth some huge efforts, coming together real nice, what a ton of parts that were put into the car. Keep us posted for sure...

This one is pretty much done now. The image is old from when I was actually doing the repairs(few months?). The only thing left to fix is a P0102 code which I will do tomorrow. Moving onto my other Monte Carlo, a 1987 Monte Carlo SS which I picked up for $1000. Needs to be sanded from head to toe with some T top water damage repair.
