Rick your car is turning out awesome.

I was looking at it and wondered how it would look with the top line at the rear curving down to make a "coke bottle effect".
Just sharing the photochop I made to see how it would look, as an option. Looks great the way you have it.

Hey Amida !, Yes, its a HID kit. 8000K bulbs. What a difference, you could almost just use them for headlights. Ive been working on the front bumper sides lately , widening them to hide the tires. Pics to come.

Ok.....bouncing all around here. Amida's bumper is amazing. With Archies +2 fenders the front tires stuck out i think alittle to much....so time to make it wider. 1st follow the countor and cut.








I had to move the lower fender back about 1" because it got "shorter" when i moved it out. Held it in place with straps.

Holy Crap !!

Man have you been busy ! I am so jealous of your fiberglass skills.

You cut and paste like you are working with paper.

Awesome stuff.

Now i have to go back and view a couple times to keep up with all the different tweeks, hehehe
You are making me reconsider some ideas i thought might be too complicated.

Tony, i dont know about you but picking a color is like asking a girl in a shoe store which one she likes ! I think ive been tossing and turning this delema since this project started. If i can get the car panels flat enought then id love to go back to black. If not then maybe white with black vents/ accents, or maybe a burnt orange ?? How about yours ??

Just picked up my winter project. 2000 Chevy Monte SS dash , cluster , door panels. I picked up the bcm as well and intend to make much of the info center work as well.

If you do this you really want to get the BCM that has been programmed to the same dash. Most inputs are hardwired but the outputs are data. Im going to sign up for alldata for the monte and download all the specs on the bcm / ecm, and how they relate. The cluster will be wired right back to the bcm as it was origionally and the inputs as well. Im thinking of running the door locks and windows thru it as well for there auto down features. Time will tell.

Here we go, no looking back. 1st Step is to remove the dash, vents, electrical connections, get alittle familiar with how things are and work.




Upon measuring it the Monte dash is about 3" to long and 6" to deep, I cut the forward dash pad from under the dash extension and it fit pretty well. I also cut the dash in half down the center to get it sectioned in where the console is. Trial fit here

The Cluster trim is again about 2" to wide to center on the center console. I sectioned it to move it over and rebond.



Think i like it




2nd half of the dash pad drops in.
