1984 Cale Yarborough Monte Carlo SS

Recommended Posts

This is the Salvinos JR Cale Yarborough Monte Carlo SS. 


The colors are Tamiya TS-26 (Pure White) and MCW 2012 (Red/Orange).  This was my first time using MCW paints and I went a little too heavy on the body so it turned out a bit more red.


I swapped the wheels with 5 hole wheels from a T-Bird kit, built a new exhaust, and added the camera antenna on the trunk.  This is my first attempt at adding roll bar padding.  I used 1/16th heat shrink and black thread for the straps.  I added the front air dam (or whatever it’s called) by tracing the piece that is included in the Pontiac Grand Prix kits.  I wasn’t too happy with the kit windshield fit, so I built my own and added the bars that connect to the dash.  Other than that, it is stock, including ride height.
