Smile My Sleeper Nova Build

I have a 1970 Nova (six cylinder, three-on-the tree) I'm building as a sleeper. Rather than documenting the build with photos, I've decided to video my progress. The first video: "The Calm Before The Storm" (below) is an introduction to the car (and to the build).

https://youtu.be/yHv1a06rgxw

The second video looks at my progress thus far. I'll be updating the build videos regularly.

https://youtu.be/LEG7I-MOwio

I have other videos on my YouTube Channel -- one on the basics of engine removal -- obviously it's geared toward beginners and another on a pretty cool ball joint removal tool that doesn't tear up boots. I'll be posting other mechanical videos periodically. Please subscribe to the channel. It's free and there are zero strings attached.

Thanks folks! It might be a bit of a start and stop sort of build as I run out of parts and/or money....and then start again once I get re-charged ...L-O-L. It's a fun car because I'm not dealing with rust or previous damage

Great video and looking forward to another of your Sleeper build projects!
I watched the clip w/ the Ball Joint tool too, pretty slick piece.
