Yep,its almost time to put the Monte away for the winter.I didnt put as many miles as usual on this summer because I worked out west this year.But,I got lots done anyhow,new cowl induction hood and fresh air kit,new windshield & rear view mirror,new upper door panels,new K&N air filter and air cleaner cover,new seats,new steering wheel and lubed the power window tracks so they work better now.The new UMI rear upper control arms didnt get installed yet,those are on next years list.
Also on next years list is to get my rear seat re-covered to match the fronts,and I also have my eye on an electric hydroboost system from ABS;

I'm also looking into a new wiper motor and intermittent cover,mine is just about shot.
Heres hoping I have a great money making winter so I have the funds for all the goodies I want.
I am also making plans to have my body shop buddy Kenny make a winter project for the Monte the following winter.If all goes as planned,I will pull the engine and get the engine compartment painted to match.I'm thinking a nice shiny black metallic paint job sure would make the Monte look some good...

Funny how you guys up north put away cars for winter while down here we are just getting some of our toys out because it's to damn hot in the summer with no a/c. Pazz

I guess cruise nights run through October. I know the Kenilworth Monday night one does.

I'll be putting my car in hibernation for the winter here in a few weeks. But will be moving to Texas around January so she won't be in hibernation too long wink

Got the Monte put away this morning,got the rear seat out and dropped off to be re covered over the winter to match the fronts.Even though I wasnt home all summer,I still managed to put a bit over 2400 miles on it,all trouble free miles.All I did was change the oil and grease it,didnt have a chance to check valve lash,but that will get done when I get it out next spring...
