    Hi Jezz.

    Really? I’m not on Facebook so I wasn’t aware!

    I did know there was some progress as Bill Chaplin from Empire Racing was in touch with me yesterday. He sent me 4 photos.

    I had some new rear arches made (much wider than before) with the moulds that Jezz (Toymex) kindly lent me. Unfortunately they are still not wide enough for my rear track (71 inches).

    So now I've got to decide whether to modify those arches and have new moulds made, or whether to go in a different styling direction.

    Any suggestions welcome, but I'm inclined to go full 'Pikes Peak' with the bodywork, and I'm liking these rear arches;

    If anyone knows the owner of that car I would love to be put in touch with him. Thanks.

    Continuing the rear arch saga, I haven't managed to get contact details for Steve Porter who was building the 4x4 Nova many years back, and had the moulds for the Hot Rod bodykit.

    But I have now managed to find a chap in Norfolk, Boss Mouldings who has a set of similar Nova Hot Rod moulds, and he sent me this photo of a car from back in the day with the kit;

    I'd like to see more photos of the rear end of that car/kit and decide if it's the style I want, before I commit to getting a set made. Of course it was a lot of years ago when Novas were competing in Hot Rods, so photos are thin on the ground.
