Thanks Snake.

More time at the bench today preparing a few bits and pieces. Used my photo-reducing method and printed up the Edelbrock valve covers. Other images in pic are MSD ignition modules and Racepak dashboard faces for my other project, the Kaufman Falcon.

Cut the images out and glued them to the tops of the valve covers, then painted the units with aluminium paint. Then sat them on the engine to check the look. Happy with them!!

Heading to hobby shop tomorrow for super glue and zapper, and some fresh putty.

As always, comments most welcome.

Cheers.... Geoff

Back from a big weekend of historic Motorsport and thought it was time to get stuck into the Nova as I saw the owners of the car at the racetrack.

Managed to get some primer on the body and can now see I still have a fair bit of filling and sanding to do. Also I still have the drip rails and rear window trim to go on.

Finished reshaping the harness holes in the seats and shot them with primer.

Then spent some time priming and painting the engine block in Tamiya French Blue and tried out the intake manifold and rocker covers to see how it would look. Yeah not bad.

As always guys, your comments and feedback are most welcome 😀

Cheers...... Geoff

Been a little while since my last post but managed to take advantage of the wet conditions here at home and spend some time at the bench.

Tackled the rest of the roof trim today. Rain gutters and rear window surround attached. 

More sanding and shaping to do but very happy with progress.

Cheers..... Geoff
