77 Monte Carlo Lowrider

Haven't decided on paint yet. I think I'm gonna hit up some stores next week and see what jumps out at me. I did decide the interior is going to stay white with an accent color of some sort.

The green is actually the molded color...took a pretty decent layer of primer to cover mine to paint it brown...lol

Cant wait to see what you do to it. I think a nice brown or tan color would look good.

Thanks J, but brown just isn't a color I can see myself putting on a body. When I get my hands on a 71 Duster it's gonna have to be brown cuz It'll be a replica of my dads first car, and a 79 Ford pickup for a replica of my dads first truck, but those will be the ONLY brown cars I do. LOL

Mine will be medium blue/white-and-blue interior and a white vinyl top. I think no matter how you do a Monte as factory stock, it'll look good.

For a custom....I'd suggest something like one of the old Cadillac and Olds "firemist" colors with white as an accent.

The idea of using the molded green and accenting it with paint has merit, too.

White with green flocked carpet and green accents.

looks like a fun kit to do, keep pics coming :)
