73 Nova Nose Job - 69 Camaro Valance
I wanted to share my current project. I have a 73 Nova Hatchback that I have had for about 10 years. I started overhauling the car about 3-4 years ago and have continued to drive it during the warmer seasons in Ohio. I wanted to get rid of the huge bumpers that were introduced in 73 to make it more sporty and aggressive. I did the grill and bumper swap last year to a 72 style and went with old school rims. This year I finally decided to paint it. I changed the color to hugger orange with white racing stripes. After my first coat of paint, I was looking at the front end and thought... Its time I did something about it. I got online and found Notorious nova, ResurreXion and another car from this site. And I personally liked them. I know a few of you purest nova guy say, no way... But I personally like it.
So I went online and ordered a 69 camaro valence, Fender extensions, spoiler, with a matching chrome bumper. for around $300. I made some measurements and stared at it for hours trying to get the nerve to take out my cutting wheel and buzz of the bottoms of my fenders. Finally I did it! No turning back now.... Please no haters... I never intend on selling it, I am building this as a father son project and a driver, not a show car.
Would you paint the spoiler the same as the car or black?
Should the stripes go down onto the valance? or stop at the hood.
Anyway here are a few pics of the current status...
