    Hey everyone!

    New to the forum, but looking forward to all the tips and help.

    I'm an owner of an 86 SS Monte Carlo that I've had since high school. I absolutely love this car and will not ever give her up :). I'm a mechanical engineer and have been tinkering with cars for a long time....runs in the family.

    Not overly crazy on the mods (yet) but here's what she has:
    Exterior: GM torch red paint with SS stripes, 2 1/4" fiberglass cowl hood, chrome Corvette rally wheels
    Engine: Crate 350, flowtech headers and pypes x pipe and violator mufflers, custom fabricated dual snorkel intake
    Interior: Dale Earnhardt Intimidator SS seats, 06 monte carlo center console, B&M quicksilver ratchet shifter

    Welcome to the forum she sure does look nice.!! I have a question regarding the center console I was wondering what all it took to put it in? Or was it fairly simple I've got an 84ss Monte Carlo and was wanting to redo mine. Thanks for any info that you may have.!!
