I just wanted to start sharing some pictures of our 72 nova project. It was my wifes grandfather who bought it new in 72. It sat for 13 years under a tarp,moisture took its toll on the sheet metal. The only original metal is the roof and inner structure. Please bear with me as me and computers dont get along.

Hey Marc,

Looks good. Do you have your transmission tunnel modified for the TKO shifter? If so, is the hole right in the center of the hump? Do you plan to have a console? I'm curious 'cause I will have the same issues. Thanks.

Thanks John and Louis. John I did modify the tunnel, and the shifter is sitting center. Im just not quiet satisfied with the way it is. So like a fabricator told me if its metal, it can be fixed. So I'll work on it some more.
My brother has helped on this project alot,we are going to make a center console for it.
