Quick Tech: Box Your Arms V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - So you want the strength of boxed
and reinforced suspension parts but don't have the reinforced wallet to
make it happen with trick new parts? Or maybe your particular ride does
not have an aftermarket beefed-up control arm available. Here's the
solution: Box up your stock control arms! Here, we sourced a pair of
original GM lower control arms from our '65 Chevelle project. That car
got new stuff, so we grabbed the extras, which happen to fit our 1968 Buick
Riviera project. Which, by the way, is one of those cars that has very
little in the aftermarket as far as parts are concerned, so we were happy
to find that we could make Chevelle parts fit. Follow along as we media
blast, then weld up our control arms for extra-strength. And although
we didn't show it, they'll get new bushings someday as well.
Pressing out a suspension bushing on my Acura Integra
I replaced all the suspension bushings on my 95 Acura Integra with Hard
Race rubber bushings. This is me pressing out the rear upper link inner
bushing. The bushing is really long, so I used a deep impact socket to
press with. I'm using the Harbor Freight 20 ton shop press to do this.
Note the safety lexan. Yes, it works.

Porsche 911 Restoration Intro
Welcome to my restoration of a 1968 Porsche 911. I am Peter Morgan and this
is the first clip I recorded in my workshop back in May 2009. This sets the
scene for the rebuild of the car. I live in the UK and I imported this car
from Florida, USA in March 2009 as a derelict, non-runner.
I am no Spielberg, so apologies in advance for the quality of the camera
work, but the main point of this is to share with you all the trials and
tribulations, plus the fun of bringing a unique 911 back to life.
You can follow later clips on my You Tube channel at petermorgan911. Hope
you enjoy the journey!
