Floor pans are same for 68-79 Nova, they are all over the place, search for "floor pan" on ebay or classicindustries, etc.

Here is a visual aid for those that are still unsure.



Photobucket is changing again, with the new version either the photo has to opened or the menu link on the thumbnail is used to access the links. I have been using the beta version and like it so far. Seems to be quicker loading and the menu to all albums and sub-albums on the left is something I asked for several years ago.

The best way to paint a beautiful NOS chrome Rally grille is to sell it for 1000 dollars and buy another grille with a black center for 250...

Actually its a crying shame, but you have to mask out the borders including the inside lip, and the lamp borders, and just primer it and then spray bomb the thing.... For full coverage you will probably have to do the back too so take care masking both ways...

That grill is worth quite a lot more than you paid for it. I painted a chrome 75 grill to achieve the look I wanted. Cleaned it real well, masked it and shot it with Martin Senour under hood black in a rattle can. It has been catching bugs and road debris for 15k miles and still looks good.



Everything painted black on my 77 with the exception of the subframe was done with the same paint.

Also when I finally got the grill I found out it wasn't NOS that he had spray bombed it with black paint to make it look like a 76 SS. It was new till he did that plus he roughed up the Crome with a Teflon pad before he painted it. I used easy off and the paint washed right off now to polish up the edges. Would rather he not painted it. It still looks better than anything I have seen ant a whole lot cheaper. Also like I said earlier I have the ss emblem that he sent with it and some blue seat belts full bench set front and back plus a standard steering wheel with button and 76 amber lights with a cracked grille if anyone needs it. Not like most people it's yours just work with me on it info is better than money. The friends I meet on here and the info you guys give has to count for something. Just let me know and I'll check on shipping and its yours just use it don't sell it

Im sure any kind of paint will do for your grille, particularly if the chrome was roughed up already. The clearcoat may give a hard finish that wont chip easy. Remember its satin/matte black, not gloss.

The lamps and lenses are a single plastic unit. I have an extra pair but they are not too good and the intl. shipping is high, you will probably fare better looking in the US.

I dont think anyone does trunk skins, seems complicated for a part that is easy and cheap in junkyards.
