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.

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 11 - Re-Epoxy Primed Doors
Block sanded the doors to see where I was at with the body work and reprimed with Epoxy primer again. Only the outer portion of the door was reprimed as the bottom inner portion does not need body work.





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 minor imperfections.

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.

Part 2 of the modification done to the A pillar trim to correct the flaw from installing an aftermarket dash pad. I use Vinyl for the finishing touch. Close up pics at the end.





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 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.
