My 72 Nova: progress pics #1

Here's some pics of my summer project. My 72 is being treated to a total repaint. As you can see from the pics its not going to require a whole lot of body work. I'm doing all the prep work myself, including dissassembly and stripping off the original lacquer paint. Then its going to a pro to smooth out the wrinkles and fix the small amount of rust thats on the car. And, I'm doing away with the body side molding as well as the "Nova" fender emblem. Oh, don't worry the bare metal pieces are safe in side the house not the "garage"

Wish me luck!!

Here's the pics : http://s79.photobucket.com/albums/j148/ratnova/72nova/

Wow a four year old thread.

I wonder how RatNova71 is doing. He hasn't been here in almost three years.
