It's been a long time since I got to do anything on this car. Last year I got my Trans Am back together and on the road. It still has a lot of work to get it all finished, but it's driveable. I want to get the Nova together enough to at least make it resemble a car again! I have to clean in all out and find places to put all the stuff that's in it. Then I'll have to sand blast the rust out of the floor braces and what's left of the floor pans before I weld the new pans in. I'll get the work done on the underside and inside before I worry about the bodywork on the outside. I'll get the sub-frame bolted back in and the new leaf springs and rear end installed so I can make a roller out of it. I don't know how far I'll get on it, but if I get anything done, it's more than anything in the past 10 years!

I'm going to try to work on it often, even if it is sporatic. I still have a lot of work to do on the house yet. I'll be doing that and trying to work on my Nova, too. I also want to wire in some new outlets in the garage and wire in the flourescent overhead lights and switches. I want to have outside outlets before next winter so I won't have to run extension cords under the doors to plug in the block heaters in the trucks. Then there's still the panelling I had given to me that I want to put accross the bottom on the trusses to be a ceiling in the garage. Then I'm going to paint the ceiling and walls WHITE! That garage is such a cave! The dumbasses that had this place before painted the walls dark brown with two small overhead lights! I want lots of light! My eyes just ain't gettin' any better! Macular degeneration sucks! Dad was legally blind with it by 62. He wasn't diagnosed with it until he was in his 50's. I'm 46. So much to do and time seems to be running out. I'm going to be pushing my limits until I'm blind or dead! Whichever comes first!
