Monte Carlo restoration

By mwg55

Today is March 8, and the weather has been fantastic the last couple of days, in the 70's but the next few days will be closer to normal. Worked in the yard yesterday so today I got to play with the car.
Had a buddy, a body guy, come over this moring and he gave me a few pointers. What I didn't know and didn't do was after stripping the body to bare metal I should have primed with a self-etching primer, now I have to sand it down again.
I pulled the dash out of the car today and 30 years of sitting outside has taken its toll on the plastic. The instrument cluster just about falls apart in my hands.
More money I didn't plan on spending.
I'm posting some new pictures so let me know what you think.
