Pulled the seats and carpet out of the Nova today to get an idea of the work I'll need to do in order to mount the Lakewood roll bar into the Nova. It sits nice in there but I'll need to rework the floor plates before painting the car and getting it fixed into the car.

It's coming buddy.

I've been trying so hard not to bolt them on until I'm done.

Likely put there from someone who had a harness bolted in? It can stay there...matters not to me.

Probably for a head pad. It would be easy to weld closed and smoothed.

Not a whole lot of time working on the car the last week or so, but got the motor pulled yesterday, removed the aluminum fuel lines and drained the old fuel. I started removing of the old brake lines last night I'll finish that up today before dropping the tank. Gotta go through the back brakes, pull the Lakewood bars off and treat them to correct paint and some new decals. Also need to decide on some shocks for the back of this car before bolting it back up. While I'm at it, I'm going to do some tunnel work as a previous owner patched it up from the old Super Shifter and the tin work is weak at best. I'm going to reinstall the Super Shifter in this car and run it with an M22 Supercase I have here. Also found a few holes I want to weld up under the car as it must of had a bolt in roll bar at some point in it's street life.

Any of you Ohio guys remember seeing a 3 or 4 point cage in it?

Plan is coming together and it will be ready for early spring with some clean up of the rough edges I've found.

Rear brakes are cleaned up and serviced with new e-brake cables installed. Hope to get the brake lines finished this week and then I'm onto the front disks and booster. Also planning to hide a vacuum pump in behind the battery so I have enough stopping power. Car still has original outer drums.

Nice to be working on a car again. :-)
