    Nice garage, and base coat. Lean on the paint shop and get them to get it done.

    Photos can be deceptive, it actually has lots of orange peel and needs rubbing down

    Car in base coat looks really good. Any forecast on when we will see you on the road with it yet?

    Power is courtesy of a Yamaha 1000efsi generator, does the job and runs lights and drill etc.. But I don't intend to do work in it, mainly for storage.

    As far as it being ready it will be taken away from the painter this Saturday, regardless of whether he finishes it or not as after two years enough is enough

    Fingers crossed its finished, but I won't be back in the UK to start assembly that soon

    ORANGE PEEL! from a "professional" painter, that's not on, If I had done that at Luton Kawasaki where I did restorations I would have been fired! Proper equipment, paint, additives and conditions there is no excuse and even here in 'dozy' Spain it's a month tops for a repair and a week for a paint job. Mind you, every other 'nava' or industrial unit here is a car repair shop, such lousy drivers.

    OK so here is phase 1 of the move to the new garage :-

    The move to the new home, second Nova kit loaded up and ready to go!



    Loaded up into the new cradle I made to house the body shell



    Trailer placed underneath and hopefully (I will find out tomorrow) space for the other Nova on top of it without fouling the cradle

    I've even got space left in front of the trailer



    and the final resting place fully secured!
    - 3 point door locking system
    - 2 deadbolt locks
    - 1 garage defender lock firmly secured into the concrete inside the garage





    lets hope its safe and sound

    The other one seems to be turning into a jellyfish with tentacles.

    Nice looking facility though - I don't know how you manage to get so much done when you're home!

    Yes I did think about moving the exhaust hanging on the wall before I took the shot but was too lazy

    So far I have been back in the country 6 days and haven't stopped at all, back and forth to the garage (1 hour drive each way) fixing it up, fitting shelves etc.. I now need a holiday!!

    Hi Dave,

    When do you move the other Nova from the painters?

    David was collecting the shiny one on Saturday.

    I popped into the paint shop to collect the rolling wheels I had loaned whilst being painted. I must admit to sneaking a few pics of the shell and parts in final colour before I left (and before Dave got there ) and it looked great in the sunshine on the polished wellers.

    I won't post pics here though as I am not sure if Dave is keeping the colour a secret till all back together.

    Reminded me of getting Nena back from the shop and the fun of assembling - cant wait to see it finished.
    All the best,

    Jim

    You don't mess around - nice update.
    Hmmm ..it strikes me that there is room for at least two more Nova bodyshells in that garage
