Jesus its been near a year and a half since i was last on this lol.. So guys let me explain, as i was saying on my last post the Nova was going to be getting a respray. So far the car has went through a smashing transformation in the last two weeks, absolutely mind blown seeing the work go into the car. Anyways im just going to share some pictures that ive taken over the last two weeks and let them do the talking. Any comments and questions are welcome..

Day 1 was the stripping


Then day 2 was all the rubbing down etc






Here on day 3 there was more rubbing down and trail fitting the rear suspenion






Day 4 came home from work to see some Toyo Proxes


Day 5/6 the bumpers where rubbed down and other bits and bobs done




So few days later i hrad some more parts arriving
New rad


New GM door handles


An almost new front carpet in superb condition


New gear gaitor


Moving on now to more spraying. I had all arches resprayed








Finally i had the suspension put back in. Couldnt get over how well the arches look and how well the respray turned out








And this is how she sits at the minute. still about 2/3 weeks of work to be done but will keep everything updated as much as i can


Ps dont pay any attention to the brake calipers and drum as they will be getting a fresh coat of paint soon
