74 Chevy Nova Update 100 - FINAL PAINT (Lots of Timelapse video)
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.
Adam's 1970 Pro-Street Nova
In the midst of writing several stories of old cars, this one is being
pushed to the front of the line, more or less for the reason one does not
usually see a teenager who only recently got his license, show such an
interest, and create a car like this, and most importantly, drive it
properly and prudently on the street. He is waiting for the chance to take
the car to the track, it is estimated with the fairly 'tame' engine, the
Nova will do an 11-second quarter mile. To the delight of his fellow
students, and yes, the girls do really like to car, Adam takes this car to
school quite often. It has proven to be very reliable and street-able,
albeit a conversation within is carried on at more then a whisper.
Following the car from a distance, all I heard was the Nova, in my Vista
Cruiser felt like I was riding a cloud! I would like to thank Josh, an
astute and budding videographer for taking the clips of the moving Nova, he
will have his license soon too, and he has ideas for his own project car as
well, he is being inspired by all the old cars he sees and getting his own
visions. As for the Nova, it has the Big Block with aluminum heads, a turbo-400 automatic, the requisite Ford
9-ich rear, narrowed of course, fitted with 4.11 final drive gears, rack
and pinion steering, manual, manual front disc brakes, line-lock, safety
seats, fuel cell, and the full roll cage. Please take note of Adam's
graphic art skills. At his age, I have told him he is far beyond his years
in talent. His work is amazing, and he is going to pursue this talent.
One can only imagine what the car will look like once Adam is finished
painting and detailing it. Good for you Adam, keep it up. It will help to
Jimmie Johnson No. 48 Car Painting Time Lapse
Watch over 12 hours of work in painting the No. 48 Lowe's Patriotic
Chevrolet condensed into 1 1/2 minutes. Amazing to see the work that the
Hendrick Motorsports crew can do for each race!
