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.

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!

Let's make your Dream Car Become A Reality.To stay updated with upcoming videos and hours of free training, visit http://CollisionBlast.com In this video we are going to apply primer surfacer. The repair has already been cleaned, masked and sprayed with epoxy primer. Now the filler primer or primer surfacer ia applied to fill any scratched left by the sanding. Once the primer surfacer is applied, you can block sand the surface, which should be ready for sealer, paint and clear. If not, it may be necessary to repeat this step. The goal is to sand all of the guide coat off without sanding through the primer surfacer ot epoxy coatings. Step 1 - Mix the primer surfacer (most primer surfacers do NOT have an induction time. mix and spray) Step 2 - Read the procedure pages for specific recommendations. For the primer we used, the epoxy requires a flash time of 30 minutes. This means that the primer should dry for at least 30 minutes. However, this epoxy has a 72 hour window. This means that you have up to 72 hours to spray on top of it without sanding. If more than 72 hours has passed, you must scuff the panel to provide mechanical adhesion. Step 3 - Apply the primer to surface. Again, read your procedure pages. This primer state to apply to coats. Be sure to wait the recommended flash time between coats. Now allow the primer to dry thoroughly, before block sanding. The primer we used said to wait at least 3 hours, but I always like to wait longer to ensure it had adequate time to dry.
