    1974 Chevrolet Nova

    This car was a winner for a free detail that we raffled at a local car show. It really needed help!! Looked as though it have been washed many many times without protection and with sand. Therfore, we were very eager to help!! We started with a good wash and decontamination. After, we started on the polishing. By using 3D One, the color began to show. This is a great color I tell ya! We then sealed the paint and dressed the engine bay. What a difference it made!!!

    Nice work prin! I know by this time many “muscle cars” were quite anemic compared to cars 5-10 years before them, but the cool classic designs, if even a bit pedestrian looking to their predecessors, still look great in my eyes!

    Beautiful paint on an iconic muscle car.

    Nice work! (as usual)


    I owned a 1971 396 SS at one time in my life. Never much like sitting in it and driving. Looked cool, when fast, just didn't like driving it. I also had a 1971 Chevelle, didn't like how I sat in it either. Maybe that's why I ended up being a monster 4x4 truck guy?

    You made it shine. Itís funny, the first couple of pictures had me thinking of the Crimson Tide, especially since I saw your location. Then I saw the front plate. Iím guessing you didnít bring up LSU or Auburn.

    Back on topic. Iíd love to know what color that is. In a world of bright red or black novas, itís nice to see something different. Also nice to see a 1974. Was the owner happy?

    Roll Tide!!! He was more than happy. His wife was going on and on about how it has NEVER looked like this!!! He was very appreciative. It means a lot when that happens especially when the service was free.

    Very cool! The owner should be extremely happy with your free detail. The Nova looks great.
