71 Plymouth GTX Startup
1971 Plymouth GTX that I've been working on getting back on the road. We got it as a "almost running" car. "Almost running" was somewhere between very generous and flat out false. We've ended up replacing all the bushings in the suspension and rebuilding the engine and the brakes. Now it's getting to the point that it's driveable and hoo-boy is it a hoot. Always fun to do the no tag, no muffler shakedown run :) Here's some specs: 440cu (7.2L) V8 with 727 Torqeflite reverse manual valve body; 8 3/4 rear end with 3.91 gearset. All going out to a pair of 15x10 Centerline rims with BF Goodrich 295/50R15 tires. Still not sure if we're going to be putting in the 4-speed or keeping the brutal automatic. Such a fun car. My little camera can't capture the amount of noise this thing puts out. It currently is just running around an old set of 2.5" pipes with no mufflers that end somewhere under the rear seats. Can't get enough Mopar!

1965 Chevelle: Sprayable Polyester - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - All the body filler on our 1965 Chevelle project has been block-sanded straight, bringing the car one step closer to paint application. The next step is to apply several coats of Standox Sprayable Polyester .. a high-build sprayable body filler intended to fill any pinholes or sanding scratches in the body filler layer below. Tiny pinholes and sanding scratches can be barely detectable in filler, but they become magnified under the shiny paint and clear coat of final paint, so it's crucial to take whatever steps you can to eliminate them from the car's surface before spraying paint. We applied several coats of the Standox product, which leaves a highly textured surface when hardened, which might appear to be a step backwards in the straightening process. However, most of what you see here will all be block-sanded off, leaving a solid white layer of perfectly smooth substrate ready for the final application of primer before paint. When properly sanded, the poly leaves no traces of pinholes or spreader marks, and it sands smoothly with minimal effort. But you'll see the whole block sanding process in the next chapter of our '65 Chevelle.





1973 Roadrunner resto XI: the 440
Temporary installation of the 1971 440 into the car to consolidate the parts, stuff and 'bits.' The engine will be pulled soon, cleaned, painted, re-gasketed and mated to the numbers matching Fireball Automatics-rebuilt 727 the installed for good. Chivvies and Frauds beware. ((Sensitive types and kids note there is a lot of swearing in the video - but not my me, heh.))





1965 Chevelle: Spraying Final Primer Video V8TV
Once the Standox Sprayable Polyester was block sanded to a 220 grit surface, body tech John Blandford prepped our 1965 Chevelle's body for a couple coats of DuPont Hot Prime primer. The Hot Prime is part of the Hot Hues line, and provides the last sandable layer before final sealer and then color. John sprayed the primer using a SATA KLC spraygun and the 3M PPS cup system. The KLC HVLP low overspray primer and filler gun for its ability to finely atomize heavier materials reducing the amount of sanding needed for a flat surface, and the PPS cup system makes clean-up simple with less solvent waste. The next chapter in the '65 Chevelle story... spraying the color!

Enjoy the hi tech frame straightening machine and automotive chiropractic science at its best. The car X's out perfectly now (believe it or not) and the final moments of the vid show the Runner as it is today.
