    My persimmon metallic (ORANGE) 75 Nova SS came with a white lower stripe and white Nova SS decals, but the original owner went with a cream repaint and gaudy custom SS marks.

    4th Generation Nova's

  15. Pinstriping Removed; Now what? Wetsanding?

    Body and Interior
    Couldn't stand the custom painted-on pinstriping on my 75 SS. Took a chance and used Easy Off oven cleaner very carefully and the pinstriping is coming off nicely without apparently damaging the 1984 applied Imron paint underneath. As expected, there are "ghosts" where the pinstriping has lived...

    Tried the GM Historical society with no luck. Anyone know how to determine detailed production numbers for a 4th Gen? I have the build sheet and production numbers for each RPO Code which is awesome data. But can we find out stuff like, " How many Persimmon Metallic SS's were made in 1975?" or...
