I might have a new favorite Tyrone build. The gaps on the doors are your best, I think. They look very tight. I also like the skins and the extensions from the chassis to support the body. Super nice work Tyrone. Keep it up Bro. I wish I could have caught up with you in Atlanta. I arrived later than I wanted also. I only had about an hour to look at the sights. It was like going to a museum for an hour. You just can't cover all that ground in an hour.

Thanks everyone for all the nice comments and interest in this build I really appreciate it... I got some work on this one today.. I tried a mock up with the rear glass from the kit installed and the thickness of the glass was causing the back of the car to sit too high .. the glass was resting on the bars that extend out into the trunk... So I used a very thin piece of styrene and glued it to the inside for the glasses I make out of clear styrene to rest on and also did the front windshield, and the doors and quaters... I added dirt modeler dzus fastener brackets to the front end.. and I also went ahead and got the headers made up ... thanks for looking and comments welcome....

What Paint is that , on the frame? It looks excellent shade of brown/silver.

Excellent work, as always, Tyrone! I'm tuned in for more to come, your builds always impress me. And this body style is maybe the nicest Nova.

Red, Blue and Orange are very good colors for this body style of Nova. Yellow isn't bad either, like this Finnish Nova.

Thanks fellas, and NIko thanks for the pics.... I've started working on the engine... I got the distributor and wires done and have been doing a little painting... I've been giving this alclad thing a try again lately, and it seems to be going o.k. I used it on the headers, valve covers, pedals inside the car.. and the enigne ... I've also got the rack and pinion in, and I added bolt heads to the rear tubbs,, thanks for looking and comments welcome...
