Eric Dillard - PBIR testing - 5.863 @ 249.21
2/7/11 - Eric actually lifted early on this pass. At the end of the video
you hear Bob Newberry calling out to Steve. The rest of Bob's statement
was, "AND he lifted early!" I believe the numbers for this pass was:
3.936 @ 201.61
5.863 @ 249.21
Colt Tunnel Modification [1080HD]
'told you I was welding. Either that or editing.
This project occupied 15 85-minute HDV cassettes, generated 2.34 TB of
video files, covers almost 22 hours of on-camera work in the garage, and
shows nothing of the setup, head-scratching, tool shopping, planning, or
the 10.5 hours of work exporting 6-layers of video and editing each one of
those tapes. The finished product has sections of video playing between
64x and 128x.

If anyone's lost with what I'm doing, this is a continuation of a previous
video where I describe what needs to be done. This is how I did it. That
video can be found here:
This car hasn't had a working e-brake in 6 years. It does now. It's been
one of the big hurdles this project has faced since the beginning, but I
didn't notice it until I finished installing the rear. In the beginning of
it I take caution while carefully extracting the carrier bearing mounts for
the driveshaft. You'll see more of those again in the next Colt video.
Where I stopped this project in the video footage is not how it will appear
once the driveshaft has been mounted. I will grind and clean up my work
and make it look stock and pretty, but it makes no sense to paint this when
I'll be welding on the other side of it.
This video illustrates how I'm dealing with fitting a driveshaft and a
large Exhaust through a bottlenecked
factory transmission tunnel. I'm nothing other than fortunate for having
the opportunity to use a Galant VR-4 tunnel as a parts donor.

Welding Race Cars.mp4
This video presents information about welding race cars that summarizes an
article published in the American Welding Societies Journal. It outlines
additional information presented on our www.NetWelding.com web site. It
includes a few video clips of Richard Petty discussing the importance of
quality welds in making a safe race car.
It has suggestions and potential problems when welding 4130 Chrome-Moly
used by drag racers as well as the mild steel used in NASCAR chassis. You

Pat Stoken 69 Camaro RJ Race Cars
Pat Stoken and his team picked up this new Pro-Nitrous 1969 Camaro from RJ Race Cars, Inc.
