1 more Guess you can see from the before pic, she was RUFFFF ... nah she was a cream puff, that's why I wanted a dark color to show it off.
22,000 actual miles. the ONLY rust on the whole car was a tiny bit in the driver fender and a larger hole in the passenger fender. ZERO rust in quarters. car was stripped to the metal.

Man that car WAS a cream puff. The paint looks awesome and that is going to be one sharp Nova that you can be very proud of .

i have to say that is one of the nicest novas i have ever sean !!! i hope my nova will look like that someday! but i have to say i would have gone with a 2" cowl or an SS hood . but still looks amazing!!! i have one question: on the top of the quarter panel right below the roof, did you fill in that divit with body filler/fiberglass? or how did you do that? because i know from the factory there is a little dip in that section where the quarter panel meats the roof and it looks like its gone to me!
