Pro tip: spend more time masking, less cleaning, don't ask me how I know....🙄

First I sanded the inside of the rear bumper, cleaned it and sprayed it with a rust converter/primer followed by a coat of black paint.

I cleaned the rear wheels and while they were off I checked my brake shoes.... I had no experience with this and mounted the front and rear shoes the wrong way round on 1 side of the car....so that is checked and fixed now too.

I de-rusted the license plate light housing, polished the lens, painted the housing and added a ground wire for trouble-free operation.

Then I cleaned and plastic dipped the rear bumper, mounted the license plate and then the bumper on the car. Good progress 😃

I wanted to have the trunk lid finished before it went to the upholsterer... didn't quite make it though. The inside is painted and the outside is still in primer so after I mounted it I covered it in plastic for transport. Drove it up the trailer on it's own power. It does take a lot of turns lock to lock on the steering.... might need a quick ratio box in the future.

Now it is gone to have the headliner installed..... and maybe I'll have him do the rear seat too.... if budget alllowes. This is the only Nova I know of that has a factory arm rest... (probably an option only available in Switzerland where this body came from)
