Here are a few pics of the 67 that DavidB is doing the metal work on for me.
He just finished doing the change over to a convertible for SammyB.
That's my boy Miki on the floor in the first pic.

Does Miki approve of Davids work? I'd hate to see what happens if he didn't like Davids work :eek:

The mini tubbing is also done.

That is gonna be one cool ride when done. I can tell you first hand that you will have a blast driving that car. When we take my buddy's 67 out, I couldn't believe how many people would drive up beside us and say "Cool car" and stuff like that. The really fun ones are the ones who actually know something about Novas cause they are confused.:confused:They know it's a 66-67 and they also know they didn't make a vert in those years. You get some puzzled looks. can't wait to see it done.
Here's some motivational pics:

Looks good!

I noticed your not using a convertible to start with.
So you will not have the triple rocker bracing needed to prevent sagging.
Do you think the ties you have will be enough support to prevent it?
Interesting question. Isn't that the aftermarket bolt-in kit (can't remember the name- CPP I think)? If so, would the kit welded in be enough or will you be doubling or tripling the rockers?

I think it would look good in semiflat black:yes:

Yes there is plenty of bracing being put in where needed and some convertible bracing was taken from the doner 62 convertible and will be put back where it belongs. Sagging will not be an issue.



Awesome looking car!
What size tires you running on that CW clip?
Front tires are 225/45/17
Rear tires are 285/40/17 minitubbed

Yes, the rear clip is a TCI bolt in. David has welded it in though.
Semiflat black?? I'll have to check that out. I think I'm going with black paint.
