So got a couple more pieces of the puzzle this week for the Nova. DSE mini tub kit and subframe connectors arrived. Finally had a little time today to make some progress so I got the floor pan assembly leveled up and tack welded down. Cut the inner rocker panels off the new pan and got the new complete rockers welded on in their place. Set the mini tubs up there just to see how things are gonna fit up. Next time, I'll get the body braced up and cut the old rockers off to make room to set the body on the new floor. From there, I can get it squared up and start replacing the crusty panels on the front end and getting the mini tubs and subframe connectors installed.

Did you order that one-piece floor from Real Deal Steel?

No, I actually got mine from Classic Industries. They had a sale going on and I was able to get a pretty substantial discount so the timing worked out. Thanks

Scored a great set of re-skinned doors this weekend, check that off the list!

So Im to the point where I need the Nova body at the house in order to make progress so I brought it home this weekend and had time today to get some hours in. Here's what I started with...after I braced it up and removed the rear quarters and tail panel in order to remove the old rusty rockers.

Here's a shot from what used to be the rear! Along the way I found several areas where I'm gonna need to fab up some patch panels but shouldn't be anything too terrible. I did go ahead and decide to order up a new package tray panel given the current condition of mine. If I don't replace it I'll never forgive myself... besides, I need the rear seat braces since mine were haphazardly cut short by the Blue-Tongued Devil!

After some help from my Dad, my kids and their friends, we got the body set down on the floor pan assembly! That felt really good and although nothing is squared up, tacked down or flanges dollied, it was starting to take shape...so far I'm really pleased with how well everything seems to line up. There's plenty of fine tuning to do but no major issues so far.

Wanted to hang the quarters back on the check fitment to the rockers, etc. after seeing that, I just had to throw some of the other stuff on there to see it looking like an actual car. Once I get it squared up and tacked down I'll begin replacing the other panels and dialing in the fitment. I'll need to install the upper/lower cowl panels, inner/outer side cowl panels, rear package tray panel, rear filler panel, DSE mini tubs, firewall, etc. etc.
