http://www.v8tvshow.com - Now that the Camaro was covered in BASF Epoxy
Primer, It was time to make the car a roller and put the body panels back
on. We start by installing the sub frame and making sure it is square. Once
the car can roll, we started putting on doors, fenders, hood, etc. With a
little persuasion, the gaps were all lined up and the car is ready for body

find any hidden rust. Once we got the car back, we repaired any rust we
couldn't find before and put the whole car in BASF Black Epoxy Primer with
a new 3M AccuSpray spray gun. Next, gap adjustments and body work!
1968 Camaro Detroit Speed Front Suspension Install Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - We wanted our 1968 Camaro to retain its classic
appearance, but handle and drive like today's best sports cars. To
accomplish this, we relied on a Speed 3 front suspension kit from Detroit
Speed and Engineering that we obtained through Classic Industries. This kit
consists of tubular upper and lower control arms, a coil over spring and
shock kit, new quick ratio steering components, and is installed into the
stock Camaro subframe.
Next time, we will be installing a DSE Quadra Link rear suspension to
complete the handling upgrades on this 1968 Camaro.

rear window rust repair patch chevelle ss panel fabrication with hand tools
Inspired by watching fabrication with dies in power hammers and english
wheels, I did my best to reproduce the techniques with hand tools on a work
bench. This is rust repair and fabrication in a home workshop. I plan to
tig weld in the repair patches using plug welds on the inside and a lap
join on the outside. I am using a reproduction rear deck filler panel that
I was lucky enough to buy locally
1995 Subaru Legacy - Quick and dirty repair of rust hole
Anyone who drives a Subaru in an area where there's road salt knows that
these cars pick up rust spots behind the rear wheels.
Since this is my daily driver, I can't take it off the road for more than a
few hours for necessary repairs. In this video, I chop out some rusty metal
and make a hard-as-a-rock patch.
Looks terrible, but is cheap, and should be durable, plus should delay the
future spread of rust in this spot.

Bullseye Power Turbo Video Install Part 2 - S71 Olds Project V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - In this chapter, we're fabricating the hardware
and tubing needed to install the Bulleseye Power 75 MM extended tip turbo from Outlaw turbo Motorsports into our 1971 Olds Cutlass S71
project. The install required mating the stock Exhaust to the custom turbo mount, then sending the Exhaust out the custom MagnaFlow 3" dual Exhaust system. Other tasks include
installing the large Bell Intercooler in the nose of the car,
installing a turboSmart Race Port 50
wastegate, and fabricating all the tubing to manage the airflow. In the
next chapter, we high-temp coat the parts, install the turboSmart blow off valve, complete the tubing,
and address the cooling and oiling systems.
Proper automotive rust repair
A quick video that follows a rust repair I did on my daughter's car. The
right way of dealing with rust is cutting it out and welding new metal in,
no other method will yield any lasting repair. And no, rust can not be
neutralized completely on a car, there are just too many places you can't
reach... No miracle product, no shortcuts....its just a long process...
Don't ask about price, I don't do those kinds of repairs commercially,
there is just no way to make money with those at a fixed price...

Metal Shop Tech: Working Panels Straight With An HTP Stud Gun Video V8TV
In the old days, one could pull dents by drilling holes in panels and
yanking them out with a slide hammer. Today, tools like the HTP Stud
Setter allow you to not only pull dents without leaving holes in them, but
also to shrink metal and install trim studs with the same tool. (Anyone
restoring a muscle car knows what a pain replacing those welded-on trim
studs can be!) Here, Nathan Newberry takes us through the process of
fixing some dings in a hood structure with the HTP tool.
