74 Chevy Nova Update 6 - Hi build Primer
Here I painted the Nova with Grey Hi build primer. This will have to be
block sanded down and will help in making the body straight and fill in
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
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.
1973 Mach 1 Mustang stripped to bare metal
We had to strip out 1973 Mach 1 to continue the restoration process. It is
a small part in the overall process, but we had to get as much done as
possible before we sent it back to our restorer for the next stage.
74 Chevy Nova Update 29 - Rust Removal Method
The fountain of youth for metal. I show how I turned back the hands of
time to remove surface rust from many of my 74 Nova parts during the
restoration. The pics are just some of the many parts I rejuvinated with
this product and process.
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
1974 "Reborn" Chevy Nova Custom Walkaround HD
The grand finale. My "Reborn" 1974 Chevy Nova Custom. Walk around HD video
with a look of the interior as well as a look at the engine bay. Proud to
say that I did it all myself from metal work, body work to final paint. If
you have watched all the 74 Chevy Nova Update videos, you saw it happen
from start to finish. Music: Bad Style-Time Back.
1974 Chevy Nova Project - Part 1
Found some old footage of my Nova before I sold it. I put a lot of work
into it to get it back on the road and drivable, but in the end I couldn't
afford to keep it and my jeep, with no place to work on either one.
It's a 74 with a 250 straight 6 and an automatic. Basic, with no options,
but the body was straight except for minor rust in the lower fenders.
