VS UTE, HT MONARO REBUILD
This is our HT Monaro currently in the build process
when we got it it was in pretty good condition besides a couple of rough repair jobs that had started to rust and a slightly warn out drivers floor
so far we've had it soda blasted, all the rust cut out and new panels welded in
front sub frame removed sand blasted old rails cut off and replacements welded on and painted along with front cross memeber, front suspension rebuilt
Diff pulled out cleaned up, new gaskets and repainted, rear leafs redone
Engine completely rebuilt: 350chev
and so far thats it, still needs a fair bit more work till were done

When we got it

where did you pick the monaro up from?

i swear i saw a similar looking one on the back of a trailer a few years ago..

having the extractors coated looks smick as, my old man just got his coated and it looks awesome.

thanks guys, the color is going to be the original Seabring orange with black stripes,all the interior is going to be original re-trimmed with exceptions of the stereo system which isn't going to be anything special just something better then the old AM radio, and we picked the car up from brisbane around 2 yrs ago and drove it back home to sydney

Is the original trim going to be the optional orange and black houndstooth pattern in cloth or vinyl?

Old Munro's blow me away - I didn't think there were any left to restore.
