Beautiful job! The First Generation Monte Carlo is near and dear to me. It was my first car in 1985 and I was only without one for two years! (91-92) I got the one I have now in 1998 coincidentally!

I love it!  Great color.  Only nit I would pick is the headlights are a little off.

Agree on all counts! If you can straighten up the headlights, it'll be darn close to perfect. Model on! B)

Nice! What did you use for the braided rad hose?

Many years ago I got some from Detail Master. This is my leftover. I did not any of the connections left so I just kind of used pressure to hold it in. I had to use that because I lost the original plastic hose.

As a former '72 Monte Carlo owner I think you got this done right. I like the color combination, not seen often enough on the 1:1. A thought on your hose mounting issue. I'm working on a modified Corvair and ran into the same issue and using the same hoses as you did. I used some very thin aluminum tubing that the braded hose would just fit into. You could drill out the radiator enough to accept the tubing and then paint as you wish. The braded hose would then fit inside the tubing giving you a solid mounting for the hose.

Very nice and clean, excellent paint job. Do you watch "Bitchin Rides?" What they pick on Nick about?  The headlights are not mounted correctly, which does stand out on an otherwise awesome job.
