So far I have aquired a 350 Chevy engine, rims, and a stock Monte Carlo ss rear end with 3.42 gears but needing a Yoke. Unfortunately I found that Monte Carlo inner fenders mount different than Cutlass fenders so I'm still looking for those. The quest continues
where are you located, I have the Cutlass inner fenders complete with no cracks if you are still looking for them

Last name night I put a new front seal in the rear end and was looking over future problems and I have question on the black panel that the gauge cluster bolts into and the cluster dash surround bolt to. The mounting tabs for the dash surround fell apart when removing it. Do you think a plastic welder and forming new ends will be strong enough to mount the surround back to

Going through some photos I found the only pic of the car when I first got it in 1996. It was light blue with dark blue vinyl top. The first day I took it and had cragers and white letter tires on it. It got hit by an uninsured driver and I had to replace front nose ds fender and door and that was when I bought another vehicle and started hopping it up. With the Ford nine inch , 350 engine.

Got my non AC heater box set up and started replacing some if the foam pieces that where deteriorated with sponge rubber weather strip and put a new heater core in. Waiting on my new firewall gasket to get here so I can install.
I might get it water tight before winter hits after all

Well it was a busy day today I got the heater box installed and the ductwork put in. Dash back in and bolted down. I don't have the cables to under the column installed yet. I was able to hook the fan up and go through the levers for defrost, vent, floor heat. All seems to be working good. The fan didn't sound so hot so I'm going to replace that tomorrow. I painted the floor with automotive single stage black with hardener. Unfortunately I cracked my dash while handling it. The vinyl is so brittle it might need a dash cap eventually
