been running montes metrics but juts got a whole regal given to me. It has steel bumpers and was wondering is this a good car to build. Is everything about the same as my monte. The nose looks like it could be a problem once the stock plastic brakes off. Will the monte nose go on one with the steel bumpers

What year cars are you talking about? There were several years where they are the same except for the nose, tail and name plates.

all metrics are basicly the same frame wise that 80 will have different spindle and rotors other then the 84 the 81 and under had smaller bearings in the spindles so you have to keep the rotor with the right spindle thats why i just sell any 81 under spindles i can find because the bearings are not as good as for the nose you might have to cut the ends off the bumper but it will fit if your talking about an aftermarket nose a stock one will not fit because of the slant of the front fenders where a monte is straight up and down
