What's good everyone, been a good minute since I've posted on here, work, pool (billiards) league picked up along with everything else and I've had zero bench time in.  Bell has been bugging me to help her with her projects, then I came down with Covid which luckily I'm at the tail end of so rather than picking up with some of the older/long term projects I wanted to try and knock something out, for the most part box stock just to get some motivation going and see something get completed.  Chose to go with a nice muscle car, love these Nova's and with the kits out there, I believe you can build a pretty nice one with out much modifications.  I started cleaning some parts up, getting some of the basics together.  The one in the picture is more or less what I'm aiming for, not sure if I'll go with a gold or an orange but as of now I'm thinking something down those lines.  Hoping this will be a fun build and get me going again!

Thanks for following along guys, really just looking for a fun build out of this, not looking for anything crazy but I think it will make for a nice build, so far I'm still sitting on Gold/Yellow or Orange for color although blue has also crossed my mind.  assuming all goes well with some clean up and stuff, the body will get sprayed and cleared tomorrow hopefully!  I'm really considering rally wheels, I like 5 spoke mags but I've used those on a number builds, old school Craigers wouldn't be a bad choice either, we'll see.

Wow using hok for interior and chassis! Kind of expensive paint job. Only use it for body but never can go wrong with hok

Good morning, yes I tend to use a lot of HOK and other basecoats for chassis, engine and interior parts.  Tend to purchase by the quart so it goes a long ways and with the bases being it is only mixed with reducer, what isn't used does not get wasted.  I like to use the snow white pearl on a lot of 60's style custom interiors, gives that pearl white Naugahyde look.

Thank you all, was going to spray it yesterday and saw few things I want to clean up a little more, should have some more work in on it today and tomorrow, start getting the flocking down and interior together and some work on the engine and chassis!
