    Things sold from the Nova so far;

    CAE shifter
    LSD
    Quaife SCCR gearbox
    Compomotive turbo split rim wheels and slicks
    Carbon Reverie seat
    Carbon Reverie steering wheel

    Which means lots of stuff is still available - including the complete 200+ bhp engine, the brand new Simpson exhaust manifold, even the mostly carbon fibre-clad rolling shell. Some of it is listed on Ebay;

    Serious enquiries only - timewasters not appreciated (you know who you are).
    There is only one way to contact me - E-MAIL ME AT colinesmith@aol.com.

    Literally thousands of Nova (plus other Vauxhall and motorsport parts) are available from me. But only if you send me an e-mail.........

    Well, I've flicked the 'Go' switch on converting my Nova to motorcycle engine(s?).

    A few bits have been purchased, so far.

    I think it warrants the start of a new 'Project' thread, I'll try and get the ball rolling within a few weeks if I can.

    At the moment the plan is to modify my existing shell to a spaceframe at the rear end to accommodate the bike engine. After that, we will see.

    I'd like to go twin engine and 4WD at some point, but that might be a step too far in terms of complication and of course cost!

    I was going to do that ,just the rear end but after thinking long and hard it would never perform aswell with spaceframe at rear and old setup at front my advice would be go full space frame as you will only do it in the end and kick yourself when you havnt ,not only that doing the front aswell the suspension setup can be so much better

    At the point you go full spaceframe you might as well find a suitable skin to put on it. No point in starting with this really nicely prepped shell if you were going to do that.

    And there you've hit the nail on the head Iain, I am not aware of anyone making a full composite Nova bodyshell, which is what I would want. So I may as well work with the shell I have, which frankly is so heavily modified already that it's of little real value to anyone else apart from me!
