Chevy nova

Post by Jade043 on Sun 05 May 2013, 9:35 pm

Hey everyone here's my next build. Having seen the builds that have been shown on this forum I feel I have to lift my game so I'm planning a few mods to the car to make it as good as the cars I'm seeing on this site wish me luck

It'll look good red. But that plastic is a really nice shade of blue as it is.

AMT are re-popping the stock '66 Nova with a Grumpy Jenkins Super Stock decal sheet.

Looks good in mock up Jade Wink
Agree with Zen, you'll need a good primer so that hideous shade of blue doesn't come through Wink Wink

Righto have finished painting the body and also the wheels. I've started on the engine and replaced the high rise manifold and carbs with slightly larger items as I reckon it looks more aggressive

Hey everyone have finally got the engine on the engine mounts and have installed a nitrous system onto the engine have got the tanks but am still unsure of the best way to install them. I've decided to black out all the chrome on the car as I reckon it'll look better.
