Here's some things you should look at if you haven't already...

First, did you check National Nostalgic Nova (Nova club magazine)? Second did you check Nova parts catalogs? Third, do you know how to weld or do metal working? and the big key of all... do you have a parts car??

These are big sources of parts, materials, and information that you need when building or restoring a car.

I hope this helps a bit.

Though I don't visit the "Team Nova" site often, their sister sites the "Team Camaro" and "Team Chevelle" are among my favorites on the net and the BEST absolute BEST place for info on those cars. I have to assume the "Team Nova" site is no different.

Check them out. You are going to have to get the panel and simply weld it in. I say "simply" but there is a lot of cleaning up to do before you do that. But that is basically all you need.
