    Collected a New project, I need more space to clear out the garage, what with the Nova and all the stuff from the Alfa 156 donor its getting tight in there and I canít get any more in the garage loft as that full of alfa/Lancia spares, only problem I have a very rusty 1966 alfa spyder where I want to put the shed so Iíll have break that up first, I did intend to restore it once but itís too far gone now

    A shed on wheels, looks better than some of the Nova project cars we have seen for sale

    Yes it does overhang the trailer a bit, but it's no good buying a small shed you'll just fill it quicker, I've got a large garage but can't move in there now I've put the body back on

    Thanks Steve it's a 350z rear box it was taken off a car due to a rattle inside, I got it for a trial fit if it works I'll either cut it open and re new the guts or buy a new one

    Hi Mike,

    It's a good feeling getting back to 'work' after a break, isn't it? I know you've been contributing to my 'droop snoot' thread ... might be worth adding some means of support to your Nova's nose whilst the body's up there.

    Looking great .... She's going to be quite something!!

    Thanks Alistair I do intend to brace the front while the body is off again, but having said that I've never had any problems with the front drooping even with 2 rads, fuel tank and a spare wheel up front

    Presumably (unlike me!) youíve kept your front undertray intact and bolted to the floor pan at the Napís hat? I wish someone had put an old head on my younger shoulders way back then!
