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 14 - The Chosen Color HD
Here is the color I have chosen for the 74 Chevy Nova. From the factory my Nova was a solid red color. I wanted to continue the same color but bring it more modern with Mazda's Velocity Red Mica (color code 27A). Has great metallic shine and the red is a really Rich color.





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 9 - RePrime & Block #3 plus Final Prime
I reprimed and blocked the car for the 3rd time. Than Sprayed the car (the 4th time painting the car) with the Final prime. Not over yet!
