74 Chevy Nova Update 22 - Reborn Startup Big Block 454
454 V8 with open headers. And a link to the very first startup so the difference between how it was and how it is now can be seen.





74 Chevy Nova Update 100 - FINAL PAINT (Lots of Timelapse video)
100th Episode!!! My Day at the paint booth! Lots of time lapse in this video of every step I took to get the 74 Nova painted. If you are wondering why I taped green tape to my clothes is because I wanted to make sure my clothes do not flap and touch the car while painting. Its tight against my body.





74 Chevy Nova Update 106 - Out in the sun and some BB 454 Revs
I take my buffed Nova Custom outside to look at it in sunlight. I also give that Big Block 454 V8 a couple revs. Don't forget to comment, Like and Subscribe!





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 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 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.





CHEVY 454 ENGINE START UP ON GROUND * HOT RATROD ENGINE * TEST RUN * REDNECK ENGINEERING
NO RIGHTS ARE IMPLIED TO THE MUSIC PLAYING......Just purchased this 454 Chevy engine. Had been sitting for 10 yrs. 86,000 actual miles on it. Switched to the electronic distributor and it started right up. Just needs a little more "cam" to make it sound better. OH, AND I FOUND OUT IT IS A 2-BOLT MAIN,MY BAD!!





74 Chevy Nova Update 27 - Stripping Paint
I talk about the methods I used to strip the Nova down to bare metal. I felt the old lacquer paint from 1974 was not a good base for todays Urethane BC/CC paints.

Test Driving 1969 Chevrolet Nova SS 396 Four Speed Muscle Car with Burnout
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1969 Chevy Nova SS, so we decided to take it for a spin. This car is powered by a performance built 396 Big-block, topped with Edelbrock aluminum heads, Performer RPM intake, and a 4 BBL Carb. All that power is being sent through a four-speed manual trans and believe me, this thing will really fly. The Cortez silver paint is very slick, the interior looks like new, and it's riding on a set of rally wheels, with BF Goodrich tires. This car is extremely well built and it's ready to go. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

74 Chevy Nova Update 19 - Big Block 454 V8 Engine Makeover
Here I show what I have done to the Big block 454 v8 engine that was in the 74 Nova. Though I have been working on the body, behind the scenes I have been also working on this engine. Now I reveal what I have done to it. Internally I replaced the oil pump as the engine was rebuilt by previous owner.





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 21 - Fender and Cowl panel Jamb painting
I block sanded the fenders three times before it was to my liking. Than I painted the jambs. I also sanded down to bare metal the cowl panel and painted it as well.
