Default Project "Take 2" 1969 Nova

Well, I sold a 1963 Nova I was working on(could'nt turn down the offer). So, I purchased a 1969 SS Nova about three months ago. I've been slowly working on it. I installed DSE Mini Tubs and sub-frame connectors. It will be a street/strip/show car. This build will give a perfect example of how diverse my shop is. I've had everything from Texas Mile, 1/4 mile race cars to Autorama show stoppers come through this piece of real estate. Hope you guys enjoy the build.

More Nova's coming out of the woodwork . Great looking start. I'll be following this one closely.

What I'd give for mine to be that solid after blasting...

Yeah, this one is the cleanest I've EVER seen after blasting.

Thanks

A welding god!


When Ironworks does his TIG welding class -- you need to be one of the instructors...


It was a surprise to me that the Nova shares the firewall with the Camaro...
