Yea I was very pleased . The whole car is completely rust free apart from the surface rust you can see in first pics but that's nothing . The lower rear quarters and behind the rear glass are all perfect

This is definitely the quickest body restoration I've seen on this site. Man you lucked out on the rust that these cars tend to suffer from. Good for you.

How far are you from Massachusetts? Laughing

Yea it's mostly because of the amazing condition of the body that we've got this far with it .if it had the usual cancer in the wheel arches , behind the rear window , rear quarters etc etc then it would have been a different story

Did you buy pre-made covers or are those from a shop? They look pretty great.

An upholstery shop did everything . I dropped off the old tatty seats and upper door panels . She did the material and vinyl as factory looking as possible . I think she did a pretty good job for $620

Thanks . I'm going with buck skin tan which was a factory color . My girlfriends dad had a 77 monte carlo back in the late 70's and she remembers it fondly . Thought it would be nice to do it the same color as he had . Here she is with her sisters in front of her dads car

Very nice job. That's a heck of a deal too for both seats.

Instrument cluster needed to be black . Was pretty grubby so had to clean up good and scuff it up before painting . It was tricky to mask off but came out ok I think

Trunk area and doors have been jammed . Always better I think than opening a door and seeing a completely different color to the rest of the car .
