In a while, Chet.

BTW, I do burnouts without needing to see boobs.... Ask anybody that has been to both gatherings.

But but its just a nice incentive to do burnouts. Even though I burnout anyway, I might as well see something as well.
Its a win-win situation, the girls put on a show, then the car puts on a show

WakBordr7387 I can't believe I missed this thread. oh well, I got it done.
Its not my best photoshop ever, but I think it'll do just fine. I love how this looks onthe monte. You'll get a big thumbs up from me if you paint it like this


I also included a sign, that with a car like this, you MUST have!
and BTW, for the record I like montes, just not the late model ones that look like bubbles.

My original '78 (the one I plan of restoring and rodding) is gold. The one in the pics is my parts car. It's done in primer red, and the primer is really fading. It was sprayed over white. Rattle can primer over white just looks waayy worse than plain old white. IMO however, excluding the second of Rob's pics and the '70 to '72s, white really doesn't "flow" right over the body lines of a Monte. Maybe it's just me.

Veto one, heck, SHE TOLD ME to buy the parts car. You just gotta love a woman like that. And in our case, she is my better half. Thing is though, she thinks it's her money

You know, though, I've been dead set on the engine/trans/rear gearing for years. The Landau top stays, but I still got no clue what color or paint scheme to run with. I know what I like on a ton of other cars, and when we were at Indy, we took around 120 some odd pics of what may work on the Monte for color choices. What I wouldn't give to be Chip Foose for a day. I bet I bent killerformula and helrazr3's ears to the point of breaking on what to do. Bottom line, like you said, "Well lets see It's Your ride, Your time and Your money." Drat....

If I didn't think that, I sure wouldn't fret the details so much with mine. I've loved the flowing lines from the first one I saw, and would hate to detract from that, just accentuate the body, if you follow.


Thank guys, Chet.

Good luck on yours however you decide to do it.
BarryH
Good Luck!

Dang, we posted at almost the same time, so I missed your posting. Till now. We've got a guy on Montecarlocity.net (his screen name is kartoon) that has something similiar to what you describe. Actually, I almost forgot the Firebid look. Good thing I have no plans for a screaming chicken on the hood. The only other thing I've got to add is mine will still have the Landau top, so the paint will have to compliment that as well. I'm just too picky I suppose.


Thanks, Chet.

schnitz One of the guys at work said he thought that maybe I should try doing something to show the flowing body lines over the rear quarters too. The "flow" from the front like on that '80 breaks like a foot before the rear of the door, and then the quarter crease picks up again almost at door guard level again. That'd be cool to pull off, but man oh man, it'll be tough for sure to make look right. That's why I'll leave it to the pros. Malc and Brad, are you guys reading this?

Thanks, Chet.
