ant7377, your Monte is one of the reasons I want to keep it the original color, looks awesome.

Got a picture of it to post?

If he don't- I do (of his 77) LOL

I think it's his anyway- from the Adirondack Nat's I think, last summer or the one before?

Thanks 77mali, I am trying to find pics of a 73-77 gold-copper without a vinyl top and all the correct trim in place.

Sorry no pics of the back window.  Here's a couple I had in the stash & from back in the day.  
Not sure if the color is the same as yours?







These are the ones from the Adirondack Nationals.  Can't confirm this is his 77 but I suspect it is.

Thank you 77mali! They all look good but this awesome pic looks like the color I want:
Do you have any more shots of this Monte?

I like the nifty jacket and oversize bowtie. My hair kinda looks like that now (according to my wife), so I think I could rock that look.

Those are some great 70's pics for sure! I wish I could have rocked an afro like that Brother. afro

I don't know why but having Anthony crack on me made my day today slap

Also- I like that Camaro color- it's probably the same paint, maybe with a different name. GM was good like that! Rolling Eyes

Lol, I had a hairstyle like bowtie in high school until the dean gave me a hair cut senior year. Thanks again for all the pics.

Bought two Energy Suspension 91-96 Caprice body mount kits #3.4136. This kit has the harder polyurethane bushings and these bushings accept the 73 metal inserts. Only used the taller/wider bushings from each kit.

Description says "Burnished Copper Poly".

Thanks 77mali! I like that Burnished copper poly. We had a 71 Lemans in our family that same color when I was a kid.
The paint color has been difficult for me, this Monte is only getting painted once. My good friend who is painting the Monte wants to go silver, cant go wrong with code 60. My mother had a new 73 Landau in silver(light pewter).
I am still looking for my copper/gold options, probably have another couple months before paint.

Lots of hammer/dolly work by my friend Tony to make the Monte straight. He is file fitting the front corners to fit better to the fender. Hope to drive it this summer.

Core support looked real nice, but battery acid ate the center layer of sheet metal.
