hell ya!! :D:D
i see it all the time and stare at it, i got a big ol window on the way to the kitchen and i see her in the drive way every time :D:D
Before I finished all the work on my Nova..It sat all the time. I might have drove it once a month if that in a four year period.......Now that it's done...I drive it every weekend if it's nice, and every once in a while during the week if it's nice.. Can't wait till the weather warms up... Lot's of work and Lot's of money But well worth it....

thought id bring this back up since ive done quite a bit more since i last posted


redid all the wiring with the AAW kit with help from fellow badazz members John and big D!! the wiring is mostly done, just routing really. engine bay and front light are all done just need to be better routed as well as dash



started with the rear (dirty i know :D) routed it the same way it was from factory i believe. its behind the rear seats and goes under and along the driver side


dash is still a mess because i haven't tucked it in and wrapped it up to make it look neat


new fuse block. a hell of a lot more stuff then my old one had

engine removel...was planning on keeping my old 350 to run but found out it had bad head gaskets or possible cracked (found oil in the radiator when i drained it) so i pulled it out and sold it...the person i sold it to told me he didnt care if it was damaged, which he called me to tell me there was a hairline crack in the block and some other issues but hes gonna redo the whole thing so i dodged a bullet with that..pulled motor and trans out. thanks to Mr Bowtie :D
