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 10 - Bare metal Doors & Epoxy Primer
I took the Doors down to bare metal (including window channels and weatherstripping channels) than did the body work. Since I like the sport mirrors look, I bought some Camaro mirrors (There are no Reproduction Nova Sport mirrors available). These mirrors were listed for the Chevy Nova. Did the retrofitting and primed with 3 coats of Epoxy primer.

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 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.
