Will 80-88 fenders and hoods fit on my 79 monte? I'm not to crazy about the 78-79 hoods with a raised area up the middle. I want to run a plastic nose, and i think a flatter hood would look better.what other make hoods would fit okay? I want to run a 99 monte nose, not the 80s model nose.

anything will work with fabrication....the 99 nose will work, just depends what look you want, I use a 99 MC nose on a Regal

We have ran that combo, we trimmed the hood and tucked it down to get rid of the raised area you are talking about and it looked really good. Took maybe 2 hours to complete. Good luck.

anybody have any pics of a 78-79 monte with a plastic nose? I would like to get some visual ideas. Not for sure if a 88 nose or the 99 monte nose would look better on a 79, with the cruddy non-flat monte hood..lol

I have a 99 Monte tail section on mine with the older SS front. It doesn't look too bad. When we changed the rear, the older Monte SS tailsections weren't readily available. Gives it a little different look than all the others.

I've seen a few with the new front and they look... ahh... weird. I don't think the 78-79 more curved body lines lend well to the newer pieces.

THE 78-80 MONTES HAVE DIFFERENT FENDERS THAN THE 81 UP MODELS THE 81 UP STYLE WILL WORK BUT WILL NOT MATCH THE BODY LINE IN THE DOORS OR QUARTER PANELS.
