    Small update.

    After some teething troubles with the carbs (I've swapped form 34ICTs to 36IDFs) my Nova is once again mobile under its own steam. I took it for a loop round the block, so I could point it nose down in the drive, and it performed well. The hard starting problem seems to have been cured, at least.

    I can now focus on more tasks to bring it back up to an MOT-able state
    cheers

    A little more progress today. The wiring for the dash lights/gauges have been re-connected in the re-furbed engine bay. its probably neater now thtait bas been for the last 20 years!

    I now need to start work on the re-working of the flip front. I plan to alter it so the upper section pivots forward, then up, similar to domr BMWs & Saabs. this will allow the front undertray to be fixed, rather than pivoting with the upper section,as it does now. I have sourced a reasonably clean MK2 undertray which will replace th eMK1 item that came with the car. This will also allow me to move the roof pump up front, so allowing me to complete the re-vamp of the engine bay.
    cheers
