I enjoyed your build on this. What did you use for your heater hoses ?  The paint treatment really makes this car standout. I always liked the "rake stance" back then and it offered enough room for thew oversized tires to stick out of the wheel wells just what HiJackers were invented for.

Great job...There’s a car that I see at shows that is almost identical to your model.And it’s loud and fast.

Just some vinyl tubing I had in the stash.

Now there's something you don't see everyday. ?

Nice work, I was following along , cool to see you replicate your old ride.

BTW, I did see a '79 painted just like that at a gas station a few weeks ago.

Very, very nice! I love the Monte Carlo, such a good looking car. Nicely detailed, even the brake calipers can be seen. love little touches like that. Nice one.

That's a nice looking Monte Carlo Joel! Brings back memories of the old days when I owned an '81 Malibu. Nice work!

I owned the '78 Monte Carlo. Blew up the 305 engine, had a 350 put in, slapped on some Cragar rims on Dunlop GT Qualifiers

My sister had that kit back in our younger years. Yours came out simply awesome!!
