Here is a 66 nova im building. It has a mid 90's ls1 in it with an home made cold air intake. Few things im doing are lowering it front and rear, a 4 link suspension in the rear, straight exhaust with tips, cowl industion hood, and some other minor mods. Will be painting this maybe a dark midnight metallic blue.

Thanks. Sorry i been busy dealing with kid issue (sons surgery paperwork). The ls i bartered with a friend on facebook. He has tons of corvette part.  Its a first time for doing an engine swap on a model before i am very pleased with it. 

Building my own custom suspension front and rear as well as exhaust.  

Interior is being painted a satin black with chrome accents, and tossing a NOS bottle behind right seat for good measure lol. Purchased a resin 2" cowl hood off Ebay to finish off front end. All being painted a dark pearl blue.I will post some new pics in the morning. 

This is the first model i have actuslly attempted to do mods upon and pleased with it so far.

Front end shot. Thanks Johnt671. Its been fun so far. The front end components werent wanting to mate up properly so i decided to scratch build them as well. Only thing used from the kit are spindles, springs and upper a- arms. Rest will be by hand. Flipped spindles to lower the front end down like i am doing to the rear end.

So update: got rest of front suspension almost buttoned upan, just need to make up some spindles. Laid down a dark blue paint(duplicolor) on the body and engine covers. Just need to let it cure out then clear coat it.Thinking of tinting the rear glass and need to figure out an exhaust system for engine as well. It is really taking shape.
