11. The window cranks and door handles came from Year One’s inventory as well.
12. We decided to hide our Pertronix Second Strike ignition box in the glove box. This piece works in conjunction with the Ignitor module in our Pertronix distributor to provide a solid second spark throughout the entire rpm range.
13. Corbeau’s cam lock five-point harnesses keep the driver in place.
14. To mount them however, L-brackets or something similar must be bolted to a secure location like the seat frame or factory seat belt holes. In order to be NHRA legal for drag racing, you can’t have the plate bolted to the floor.
15. The seats are pretty firm, which positioned us comfortably enough to see over the cowl hood.
16. Monitoring the vitals is a piece from Classic Instruments. It bolts in the stock location and is a definite upgrade from our stock gauges. Look for a more in depth article on this installation in an upcoming issue.
17. Year One also supplied us with shiny sill plates for the Nova, which cleaned up the ragged carpet edge at the door openings.
18. Lokar’s Competition Series throttle pedal bolted onto our Nova’s firewall; we recommend installing this piece before putting the engine in due to the angle of the bracket mount. The trick pedal pad is also from Lokar Performance and compliments the pedal assembly nicely.
19. At the center of it all is the TCI Outlaw shifter, that we ordered with a single button; this will control the Hurst Roll Control that we plan on installing soon. The seal the shifter cable is snaking through is from Earl’s Plumbing.
