Question Mini-Tubbing a 73 Nova Hatchback?

I would like to start cutting into my Nova.
All the doors, hood, hatch,windows, etc. are removed. Since I can't fit too big of a wheel tire combo under it, tubbing is my only option.

Since it is a hatchback, I can't just cut out the, wheel wells. They are integral to the hatch's air suspension. Is this somehting that I can just start chopping and fix problems later, or should a pro do this for me?

I have seen the chevy magazine's doing this for some time and i'd like to try my hand at it.

Anyone who has done this please help!

Hey '73. I have a question...if all of the parts are stripped off of the Nova. Why are you wanting to "jerry rig" the headlights so you can drive it this weekend?

Because I need to make a midnight run to a friends house. I'll be stipping the paint ther.
I dont want to drive during the day, ther are not too many cops round here at night, it looks stripped for parts. Don't want to be accused of any fellonies, esdpecially since i lost the registration and can't show its my car. I would use a trailer if i had one, and i cant afford to tow it. that good enough kevin?
