The doors look reaiil good looks awesome with the black and gray.!! Nice job
Are those the original doors to the car?
Is the lower door panel not all the way on?
To me it looks like the upper door panel has to slide back a little.
We really are not sure, the car was bought and sold numerous times locally before we acquired it.
We noticed that and will be doing some final adjustments when time allows.
To break from our Monte build for a moment, we had to share this custom gauge cluster we just finished for Barrett-Jackson’s #ProjectPrestone build. Pictures just don’t do this cluster justice, it should be a perfect match for their black & yellow themed Aerocoupe. While at SEMA last week, we were able to meet with the folks at Barrett-Jackson and see #ProjectPrestone first hand. The stance, paint, brakes, and finish work have made for a stunning Monte! It has been a pleasure working with the folks at Barrett-Jackson and I think we have come up with a solid plan for the interior that should really complement the car’s beautiful exterior. You can keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates to #ProjectPrestone in the coming weeks or if you guys would like to see some more progress let us know and we can make a separate thread for that.
OK….back to our own build next week. Have a great weekend.
Time for a break from the interior. It's tough keeping all of the new parts clean, so we paused for some rust and paint play. The trunk was in very good shape, just minor surface rust. This car had a left rear lower quarter patch installed and the backside was never finished. Heck, it still had the Goodmark stickers & part numbers on it.
A little more work with the wire brush and the trunk was ready for a couple coats of SEM Rust Trap. This job was quick, which was nice since the interior is just the opposite.
Love the gauge cluster!! Keep it up on the build.
The back seat area started with new insulation to keep external fumes and noise to a minimum and ended with all new panels, rear shelf and PUI’s upholstery.
To keep the kids safe, we installed a new set of belts from Seatbelt Solutions. If you look closely, you may notice that we carried the black theme to the rear with re-striped rear armrest panels and painted C-pillar light bezels. Every screw was replaced with new black oxide to continue the same theme. So many chrome screws in these cars!
love the headless headrest covers!!! do you now offer these in your inventory? i knew my favorite vendor would "stand above the rest"
