A little bit of a update. Have made the steering wheel two inches smaller in diameter as the 15 1/2 wheel was to big big for my liking also got one of my taillight housings made with LED installed,and have started doing driver side body work.I just keep pluging and hope to have it done by this time next year or sooner (fingers crossed).http://s375.photobucket.com/user/rt338b1/media/DSCF0623_zpsnyfch5ru.jpg.html?sort=3&o=26http://s375.photobucket.com/user/rt338b1/media/DSCF0982_zpspyj6vbvq.jpg.html?sort=3&o=3http://s375.photobucket.com/user/rt338b1/media/DSCF0972_zps2i0fhnml.jpg.html?sort=3&o=4http://s375.photobucket.com/user/rt338b1/media/DSCF0966_zpspmaaxeeh.jpg.html?sort=3&o=6http://s375.photobucket.com/user/rt338b1/media/DSCF0948_zpsxwjrttdz.jpg.html?sort=3&o=7http://s375.photobucket.com/user/rt338b1/media/DSCF0892_zps3twlazqk.jpg.html?sort=3&o=8http://s375.photobucket.com/user/rt338b1/media/DSCF0889_zpsc8fzdnty.jpg.html?sort=3&o=9http://s375.photobucket.com/user/rt338b1/media/DSCF0984_zpswhoiw3z4.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1http://s375.photobucket.com/user/rt338b1/media/DSCF0986_zpssn66wvcq.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0

Thanks Tom. Still in search of a rear bumper and if all else fails I am going to have this one painted with jewelers silver at a local shop. This **** looks just like chrome and I can fix all the pitted steel after I have it stripped at the chrome shop.

I have had 13 Novas from 62 to 67 and never had a wagon but would have loved one to transform into a real two door like this special and the corvair I did 20 years ago. Probably should post a pic of the vair as nobody ever sees them.

As much work as you've put into it have you considered just forgoing the bumper all together. Similar to what guys do with S10 blazers? Just a thought...

Didnt realize I didnt have picture of taillight change so I hope this makes it clear what I have done here. This is why I want the rear bumper so bad as it will give it I think a great look. The perimeter of the housing will be polished Aluminum and the area around the lense will be painted the color of the car.

Thanks I talked to him but he seems to think he cant sell the wagon if he sells the bumper lol. So I will keep searching and maybe I'll get lucky sometime.
