Whilst I have skulked around this site for a while I never fully introduced myself. I mainly post on the Euro-Nova website in the UK.
Well may name is David and I’ve owned my Nova for 24 years (yes you heard right), my car is still in the UK but I live in Singapore so as you can imagine progress has been somewhat slow lately. Its been on and off the road throughout that period as I did a number of modifications over the years and always tried to keep it roadworthy whilst I evolved it to where I wanted it to be.
I have dug out a selection of pictures as I know most of us would really rather see the pictures than read about what has been done! So here goes…..
This is the car as I purchased it in 1989
Then the modification journey started…. Opening side windows, pop-up lights, rack and pinion steering, disk brakes all round, new engine cover, new rear end, aircon, engine swaps (currently its 4th!), custom mirror mounts, etc..too many things to list.
Then I ended up cutting the chassis in half and shortening it (it was originally two mated together, but the wrong dimensions to get IRS).
Cut some seats in half to make narrower to fit the dropped floor pans
Made a new exhaust setup to match the water cooled engine
got it ready and took it off for paint,….
Got it back from paint ….after two years!!! Don’t ask long painful story
Started the reassembly….
Back from a few final paint touch ups that were not completed
some more assembly to do on the rear, grills etc.. to be fitted
It will probably be next year now before I get to play with it again and continue the assemble and finish / redo the interior
Oh yeah and I do have another complete kit that I rescued awaiting a build at some time
