Angle the post like the rear window...... get rid of the vent window.

Find a copy of Super Chevy "Nova" edition magazine fall of 2006 and it shows all....... yes all steps and pics of the complete conversion!!! This might very well be my next project??

If I ever remember to take my camera with me, I'm gonna take some pics of a 2 door wagon conversion done like you've probably never seen before. That is all I will say till I can take the pics. It's only 3 miles away, just gotta remember.

Nobody wants to admit it, but here is the project. When it did not work out, they cut(there's a big word!) out the wagon portion and decided on this. I'm thinking of buying it as well!

Sorry Jonesy, I could not resist. The whipping shall commence!

That cut down nova would make a cool wheel stander. Loose convertor, tranny brake and big hit of nitrous and see how long you can drag that bumper.

Hey Carl, how did the doors fit up? or is his project Top Secret?

You need to post pics for these guys.

Does the striker/latch assembly line up from the stock b-pillar and a 2 door post door? All you have to do is move the b-pillars back to align with the new doors?
