    It looks like you have feel on your feet with the new screen "Bonus".

    With all of those switches are you sure it didn't belong to a mobile switch sales man? But thats one of the great things about people putting their own stamp on it.

    What are your plans?
    What every you do enjoy & have fun


    Cheers.

    Yes it's my first Nova. Last time I did something like this was with a TR2 about 20 years ago.

    Plans T the moment are simple
    1...make it start (last time the engine was started was apparently 4 years ago)
    2...make it stop (fix the brakes)

    Then
    3...fix up the inside

    Welcome to Nova ownership.You've started at the right place by joining the forum. Do you have a schedule for getting it on the road? It would be great to have another 'new' car join Club Nova at Stoneleigh (or carfest) in 2015.

    The aim was/is get it ready for Carfest, when's Stoneleigh?

    Not sure at the moment if I'm hoping they are all wired up or not...but they can't all be wired to what's expected

    In any other car I'd say these are for 4 electric windows & electric mirrors. I've got neither.

    the set of 4 are window switches
    The one to the right is central locking
    the one to the left is heated window

    I doubt any of those could have a function

    ...And central locking by the look of it... another novelty in a Nova

    Just found a Sparkrite Voyager for sale on ebay - nice little paddle-wheel fuel flow sensor and the ring of magnets is very similar to my Smiths/Mobelec fuel computer, which I bought with no installation instructions back in 1985...

    I can barely see anything for mildew, I'm sure things will look better after a bit of a spring clean!

    At the very least, you'll probably get a couple of quid on eBay for all the switchgear you don't reuse. I'm sure most of those switches are probably hard to get for some of the cars out there. lol

    G'day Andrew,
    Welcome to the crazy world of Nova ownership.

    What we all want to know is what does it smell like inside?

    It looks nice from the outside, just need to clean up that interior.

    Good luck & look forwrd to seeing it & you at a show real soon.
