Re: 1970 Nova....

Finally got the replacement tail panel installed.

I think I'll (finally) spray some primer this coming weekend.

Re: 1970 Nova....

Spraying primer is always a satisfying feeling...

Re: 1970 Nova....

Here is a before and after of the windshield repair/metal work.

A couple small metal patches welded in, grind down the welds, cover in epoxy.

Re: 1970 Nova....

Just stumbled onto one of your posts and saw the thread. I had a 72, did the same kind of work to it. I did a minitub and fit a 275\60\15 on an 8" wheel no problems. I wish I still had that car. Yours is looking great! Post more as you go. Great job so far.

Re: 1970 Nova....

Made a little progress over the weekend......High build primer.

Going to have to block sand a few times to get some straight panels.

Re: 1970 Nova....

Still slowly plugging away with the paint. Right now over 75% of the car is in high build ready to start block sanding.

1) The doors were in horrible shape. Ended up skim coating the whole door, then sanding most of it off. Now back in high build. First time doing that and its not as easy as it sounds.
2) DA 80 grit on hood
3) Epoxy Primer
4) 2k High build to start the block sanding
