Great looking Monaco! I started a similar project and want to include small mud flaps and a vinyl roof.  Seeing your finished project is great motivation!

Great build mangodart. Impressive. What paint did you use on the body?

I had a '76 Dodge Coronet the same color several years ago.

Very cool.

Impressive modifications and details given to a not to steller of a kit. I've never seen anyone perform the proper modifications necessary (as you have done) to make this kit presentable...especially the rear bumper/tail lamps mods. Take a well deserved bow, my friend! Fury3

Thank you, Ford Guy, the color I used came from an automotive  spray can, and I don't really know which color  car it is suppose to duplicate.

Dave, good to hear from you !!!  :D

Mangodart,

 

Mud flaps mount to rear edge of a fender and prevent mud and road debris from kicking up.
