I have been working on the Nova for a couple of months. Bought her in july 2008.
Here are a couple of pics how i bought her:

It has a nice 350V8 and TH350 transmission. She didnt get much attention from the previous owner, i've given her a new air filter, new oil and oil filter.
Next up; new valve covers, spark plugs, plug wire and chrome stuff for the brake fluid and radiator pressurecap.
I found a nice garage near our house, the perfect spot for more work on the car.
Some bodywork on the front
Reshaping the rear fender
Removal of trim, emblems and chrome
There were a couple of spots under the vinyl roof that seem to grow larger every month, the roof had water leak issues so i decided to pull the top. Horror was found there. I've spend hours removing the glue and repairing the water damage. Looks like i'm not the first to do work on this car.
After pulling all the plastic from the interiour i made a painting spot underneath the sink in the toilet. Not everyone in the family was happy about it but they tolerated it for a couple of days.
Found mayor rust and crap in the kickpanels and the cowl is also in bad shape, i've decided not to use the existing cowl vents and am installing a new water plan (we dutch have this thing about rerouting water
Fresh painted doorpanels
The old headliner needed work, i decided to pull everything out and replaced it with bright red skai leather. The result is not perfect but it's okay.
The interieur will be all black, i spraypainted the seats with VHT dye (great stuff!).
Yesterday i layed on the first coat of rustoleum, and i think it will be allright. More sanding and rolling to do, i will post the results next week.
