I wanted to try a little more modern headlights, hope they don't look too ricey. They work nicely but the right one flickers a little, hope its just a loose connection. The headlight bezels are used ones for now. New ones to come.

And, it may not sound like much, but spent the day adjusting the door and quarter windows so they roll up and down nicely, mesh with the weatherstripping nicely and the windows are even. Took forever, but a huge step and a lot of work.

terrific transformation - having pictures really helps others like me to see how things go together - just a suggestion but, you might condier putting a heavy duty on/off power switch near battery to use as a kill switch if ever there is a short - or, if will not be driven for long periods of time

excellent job on your nova SS. i have that same radio in my 66 but only two speakers in the back deck. i bought one of those rechargeable CD players an connected it into the AUX input. i just lay the player on the passenger side floor. it's kind nice not having to listen to all the radio adds an just music while i cruise the country roads.

All my door handle mechanisms had broken springs on the driver's side, so I decided to try the reproductions for 66-67. I'd read they could be used in 62-65 with minor modifications so I thought I would try. Here they are side-by-side.

All it took was to flatten the arm. I thought I might have to cut a section out to shorten it, then re-weld, but it works just fine banging it flat.

did the extra length not matter after pounding it out? just curious, and a very simple fix! might be able to flatten in the bench vise, too.
