WOW! That will be a hell of a project. I like the big one piece floors. Did it come on that frame/jig?

Yeah, it's definitely gonna be a project but it'll be rewarding seeing it come together. It comes attached to the steel frame. I'm gonna use it as a frame jig of sorts to level the pan up and get the body mounted.

Thanks, yeah, I was excited to see it. The quality seems very good from just looking at it. We'll find out how good when it's time to set the body down. Originally, my plan was to get it sitting level, put the body on and then change the rockers. Now I'm thinking I might go ahead and level it up, install the new full rockers then weld in support braces on the body so I can cut the old rockers off. Then I can sit the body on the floor, square everything up, tack it down and install the doors to make sure things line up properly. At that point, I can tack weld the quarter panels in place (they're lined up but only screwed on) and start removing the inner/outer side cowls one by one and replacing them as well as the upper/lower cowl panels and firewall.

I'd love to be able put the mini tubs in while the body's off but I'm afraid to push my luck. Seems like it should be feasible, however, I don't wanna end up with gaps between the wheel wells and quarters. I suppose I could always fit up the outers with the body on, mark my cut lines then pull the body off again...we'll see, stay tuned!

Dammit Shane,
Your going to get two projects done before I finish my one. I kinda feel like a slacker. Lol
This Nova is going to be a solid car. I'm tuning in on this one for sure.

Yeah, I've already been checking them out. I promised myself this was gonna be just a "nice" driver but I'm not sure I'm capable of settling. I'm thinking about picking up a less-expensive bad habit lately....maybe cocaine or gambling!

Thanks Joe, I really appreciate it! I've been keeping an eye out for updates on your Torino, you're doing a great job! Congrats on the upcoming retirement, too!
