      sure, i have to say I'm re-wicking CE4+/Stardust style clearomizers, but they have the same style heads as the nova's. I'm using 2mm silica wick and Kanthal A 32 AWG wire. I double the wick so it has four legs then i wrap the wire four times around the wick, gives me right around 2.1 ohm's. Also, i use the paper clip method to wrap the wire and stabilize the wicks. it also helps prevent you from wrapping the wire to tight. If the wire is too tight around the wick, the juice doesn't burn very well.

      Dont quote me on this but i think with the nova's you want to use 1mm wick and triple it so you have 6 legs. the Kanthal A 32 AWG wire is fine for all types of wicks from rebuilding nova's/CE4+/BCC to high end RBA's.

      i watched a bunch of you tube video's to build my confidence. its super easy. Four wraps of wire is a safe number for ~2 ohms, but i recommend using a multimeter to check your nova before use.

      good luck and VAPE ON!!!!!! :vapor::vapor::toast:

      Hey man! Thanks for your reply on my "nova replacement heads" post. Can you tell me what gauge wire, and what type wick I need to rebuild my own? I really want to give this a shot! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a ton!
