    Nova body shell dimensions

    Hey guys.

    Does anyone know the width and length of the shell for when I hire a flatbed to collect it so I know i've got enough space.

    Thanks.

    I'll go and throw a tape over it now, as far as I remember it's 14.6 foot long in old money....

    It's a 49 year old car and everything works, just not always at the same time.......and it's probably about to get jealous!

    Right, it's 445 cm long by 172cm at the rear haunches - mine's got quite long exhausts but that should give you an idea.

    I've been in contact with the poly-creations guys; just putting together a parts list and costings at the moment.

    I've also been talking to Sterling of America to get some hinges.

    Saw some post earlier that said others were looking as well, so I wasn't hopeful.
    Furthermore, where can I source a wiper assembly?

    Just search through all the posts
    I know that Jim found a place to get stuff for nena and his new car.
    All electrics are straight forward and your choice of style. Plumbing again can be sourced local and made for the car.
    Rear glass, get glass cut to size for a tenner, side windows is up to you on spec and style ( I got mine made by plastics 4 performance ).
    Windscreen is the costly part !! But depends if you want new or second hand.
    Hydraulic pump from hydro products.
    All the answers are buried within the forum, even plans on hinge spec which could be fabricated .
    It's all good fun but takes a while to source the info !😋
    We are all here to point you in the right direction

    Would love to know where you get toughened or laminated glass for £10!

    Wipers on Nem and Nena are easily sourced at a cost - see pic for codes, £180 all in
