This is not a job for the timid.....The Nova body will flex all over the place with the structural support the unibody floor supports give....IF you are determined to do this... ....then I suggest making a lot of inner braces going from one side to the other to keep the body panels in alignment.

IF you are doing a post will stand it a little better than a hardtop car.....

There are a LOT of things to consider.....

1) wheelbase
2) track width
3) body support
4) ride height

Not counting the usual a good place to work, your tool access and your skill level.......
