All the ones available are for drag racing and are made from fiberglass or carbon fiber.

That's because the original body was pretty banged up, the "new" rear quarter panel was made using the roof panel from an Olds Achieva...

I bought it used, it's a 2003 Monte Carlo nose.

I used the 1999 Monte Carlo headlight stickers on it since they matched the Cavalier style the closest.

You might want to go with the 1999 nose & 1999 headlight stickers, however I'm not sure how that nose would line up.with the body

http://www.fivestarbodies.com/index.php?p=product&id=183

I had to do some creative trimming to make the 1999 decals work on the 2003 nose. I had to trm quite a bit away from the wheel well part of the nose to get it to look right on the front end, and that narrrowed the nose up quite a bit.

did the top width match the car or did you have to cut some off the inside of each half?
i have been looking at these and was just wondering if they matched in width where i would be riveting it onto the body

I didn't cot anything out of the middle where it the 2 halfs rivet together. I cut the ends of the bumper a lot shorter since the Cavalier front end is shorter than a Monte Carlo stock car. There's a lip to rivet the fenders over the nose, I cut that off and riveted the nose over the fenders. The factiry bumper in no longer there, pipes were custom bent to support the nose..

Why not get vinyls of the 00-02 Cav lights, oversized to fit under the hood? It would seem to lend itself to that.

You did a nice job on that nose, maybe ill get a piece like that and try it. Is it fiberglass or plastic?

Did you make the lexan windshield or is it the stock glass? i cant tell.

The nose is plastic. It's very flexible. There are indentations where the headlight stickers go, not sure how the cavailer stickers would fit. The windshield was cut down from a flat piece of lexan.

Ah crap, forgot about that. I have a neighbor who raced late models and drove the 03 Monte Carlo nose on his old 98 monte carlo street stock.
