I am glad to hear you plan on driving it. You are are doing such a great detailed job with it I was worried it was going to be a trailer queen.

Thanks for your comment. Looks like you have a nice Nova. I was looking for a 68 when I ran across my 72. I was born in 68 so I wanted that year Nova.

I'm stealing it!! I was looking for a dark blue metallic and saw this on a trailblazer. Now I'm hooked. I will also be doing white stripes but no cowl hood and the car isn't that detailed. You live nowhere near me so I don't think we will run into each other.

Thanks Steve

Hope to get the engine installed this week and start to assemble the front clip next week. I will update the pictures as soon as this happens. My goal is to be behind the wheel in 3 weeks (cross my fingers). I wanted to make it to the Winstar Casino car show this weekend in the Nova. I may be there in the truck. Have you ever been to one of their shows?

Do a search under body shims.When I changed over to solid mounts I was unsure if I should keep them or not.Thanks to others I found they remain.I would hate to see you do all the beautiful work and have something so minor screw with you.
