74 Chevy Nova Update 2 - Some progress
Heres an update on the various things I did to the Nova.





74 Chevy Nova Update 4 - Bare metal
I took it down to bare metal. Took 2 weeks to get it bare. Used Metal to metal Body filler to do the body work. Ready for Epoxy primer.





74 Chevy Nova Update 18- Painting Deck Lid and Moldings plus Fender Update
Here I paint the deck lid and the rear window moldings of the Nova. I also did the first block sanding of the fenders and another Epoxy primer coating in prep for blocking #2.





74 Chevy Nova Update 3 - Body work preview
I just show the dents I had on the passenger side quarter panel of my 74 Nova resto project. I used Metal 2 Metal body filler.





74 Chevy Nova Update 12 - Block Sanding Doors #2 with Timelapse
Here I block sand my Door panels for the second time. When I reprimed the doors, I added extra paint to the lows so that I can block sand the doors smooth. I show this in this video with timelapse of the actual sanding process from start to finish.





74 Chevy Nova Update 37 - Rear Filler Panel 3 Progress and Jamb Painting
Part 3 Attached the aluminum strips to the filler panel and Jamb painted the rear since when bumper is installed, it will no longer be accessible. I also show the paint process and a small demonstation on how flexible the clear is.





74 Chevy Nova Update 23 - Body Panels and Power Brakes Installed
Installed all the panels I jamb painted and converted my manual 4 wheel drum brakes to Power 4 wheel disk brakes. Towards the end I show the gaps of the panels. The brake conversion kit used was Right Stuff Detailing. Rate and subscribe. Thank you.





74 Chevy Nova Update 15 - Jamb painting
Finally some COLOR! I show the jamb painting from masking to complete. Velocity Red Mica is the color and its Urethane Base with Clear Coat. Red Oxide Sealer was used as well to help with overage.





74 Chevy Nova Update 16 - Jamb Painting more Body parts
Did some more Jamb painting to the Nova parts. Got some color to the door insides and started on the front end parts and deck lid.





74 Chevy Nova Update 5 - Epoxy Primer
Painted my Nova with Epoxy Primer to protect the bare metal. 3 coats done in my garage.





74 Chevy Nova Update 26 - Engine Detail maintenace - Filler panel plans
I answer a question that was asked about Engine detail maintenace. I also show some plans I have to remedy the rear filler panel situation that 73-74 Novas are plagued with.

74 Chevy Nova Update 0 - First Startup
Car was left for dead but in great shape. Was for sale not running AS IS. Fiddled with it a bit and this is the outcome. Body has low mileage! (I took off body panels for easy access to everything.) Engine is a V8 7.4L 454 Big Block. Link to the Reborn Startup at the end.





74 Chevy Nova Update 8 - Reapplying Hi build Primer
After block sanding I needed to apply the hi build primer a second time. Basically the begining of the second prime and block process.

I installed the 454 Engine and transmission and give a tour of what I did and show and explain the look I'm going for.
