Finally got the remainder of the necessary parts to fully assemble the body shell. Now hopefully I can carve some time out this weekend to get some things permanently in place.

I ended up springing for new package tray sheet metal as mine was pretty rough in one corner, had been butchered for speakers at some point and had also fallen victim to some clown with a torch who cut the seat support braces off short...surprisingly, those seem impossible to buy, new or used! I knew if I didn't replace it now, I'd never forgive myself. One cool thing is that it comes with new trunk hinges and torsion springs.

Default Frame Specs

I thought this might be helpful. I used it when I built mine from basically the same condition you are starting with. It says it's for the earlier years, but I'm pretty sure it's all the same.

T,
All I can say is "Wow"! I appreciate this info more then you can know. I was especially sweating positioning the firewall/floor pan supports as they are used to attach the subframe so this information is invaluable. Thanks for taking the time to post it up! I've definitely got some reading material to sift thru now

Ok, been a minute since I had any real progress to post on the Nova but here goes. Also, my account got changed up somehow and I wasnít able to login until now so big shout out to Camcojb for getting me squared away!

So Iíve been accumulating more parts and finally got some time over the last two weeks to work on the car. I actually took a few days off this past week just to get some stuff done.

Got the old package tray out, new one cut to pieces for the DSE mini tubs and mocked up in the car.

After getting the mini tubs and new outer wheel house fitted up, I mocked up the rear quarters, tail panel, trunk and filler panel to be sure things were on track.
