    We mocked the front end up to see how everything would fit.

    Definitely not, the evo doesn t have a distinguished sound either, so you d think it was a LET if you didnt know,

    Unlike the subaru mk4 golf im doing, you just know its a subaru, no hiding that thing.

    New engines all sound the same, remember the good old days when cars had their own sound, like an xr2, mk1 fiesta, 1.3 astra, astra gte 16v, the unmistakeable sound of a sierra cosworth and of course a nova sr.

    Re: 4x4 NOVA VAN EVO 4

    It is solid, i havent used it for a few years, its got a carlton 1.8i motor same as mk1 gte, with a manta gte sump and 5 speed box, its got the mega rare manta A rear axle,
    I have another exact same spec with a redtop which i will be restoring next and getting up to 300hp on carbs,
    I also aquired a kadett C estate which is 1 of only 4 in the country and very very rare !

    For me one of the coolest looking cars on the road and better looking than any VW !

    Re: 4x4 NOVA VAN EVO 4

    Cheers its coming on nicely, the front end is about 85% done

    The rear end is not

    I now have the rear valance so we can crack on with the back end

    The sills look mint now, so anyone wanting to get down and have a wee look underneath, can ?

    We put the new front end on.






    Lower front panel needs modifying to fit the intercooler.










    The remainder gets joined to the cross member for extra strength, and the bumper can still join to the lower valance, again trying to keep it original so everything mount as it would on a nova.





    This is where we cut the cross member open at the top, modified the cradle as the cross member is on an angle, then we bolted the cradle through the cross member.
    We welded the nuts captive, then welded the cross member up with the cradle nuts inside.

    Cant believe you cut that GM panel up...

    Looking good tho.

    I dare any of you to tell me you wouldn't let this upstanding young citizen slob on your knob like corn on the cob.

    Hello Benn, the lower panel i bought off ebay as i knew it was getting butchered.

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3224057920...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    The slam panel is GM though.

    A few more pictures...

    We made a start on the back end.






    New panel which was a twxt to get in and lined up.








    Joining the evo floor to the nova rear panel.




    We will be cracking on with the rear arches shortly, there is a fair bit of work in sorting out the outer and inner arches
