  1. I have built at least a dozen of these Monte Carlo kits since they came out in 1998. I understand you clamping issue.🧐 The main culprit is the firewall. It has to be installed just right, otherwise it creates a seesaw affect with the chassis and floor assembly. I love the color combination you picked. And the whitewalls suit those cars quite well! Can’t wait to see it done! 😁👍
  2. This is the second one I did. The main purpose was to post here. Here are some pictures of the first one.
  3. That is a beautiful color! Nice paint work!
  4. The 1970 Riviera was always my favorite! There is a 3D printed one available from Too Many Projects on Facebook. I ordered one and should get it soon. I have all of them from 63-65, 66 and 69. good luck with the build!
  5. Hi Bill. The wheels I sent to you were printed with clear resin. I also have clear red for taillights. Although it’s not red enough, I’ve heard a little pigment can be added.
  6. Thanks! Yes, that is the Monogram Superbird with a Johann wing.😁👍
  7. That’s exactly my point. I think my local hobby shop still has them sitting on the shelf from the last time it was reissued…🤷🏻
  8. Yeah, I get that. I guess I’m wishing out loud….😁
  9. Seven pages of conversation here and nobody’s talking about the 71 Monte Carlo super stocker. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge Monte Carlo fan! But I think AMT is missing the mark here. It’s not a very desirable kit as far as I know. I think they would be better off updating the current 70 Monte Carlo into a 71 or 72. Would be a big hit with musclecar fans and Lowrider fans.
  10. I just found this one! I don’t know how I missed it. 😝 It’s looking good so far!
  11. I’ve always considered doing the 74, I simply like that body style little bit better. But I like what you’re doing with this one! Can’t wait to see it through!
  12. They look very much like the AMT 1970 Monte Carlo (1998 issue and later) I can’t see if Bill’s has the valve stems. The outer edge is beveled.
  13. I was disappointed to hear there will be no more 2 door Civics in the US!😩
  14. I like family cars! Can’t wait to see the results!
