1968 Camaro "Reloaded" Body Filler, Spray Polyester, and Body Work Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Once all the sheet metal had been put back on and
the gaps had been set, our Camaro was ready for body work.
Nathan covered each panel in body filler, then sanded them down to reveal
high spots. He also took some time to shape the fiberglass hood and wing.
Once he was happy with the shape of the car, he covered the whole thing in
BASF Glasurit Sprayable Body Filler. After some more sanding, the car was
ready for primer. Next time, sealer and base coat!

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

little persuasion, the gaps were all lined up and the car is ready for body

Rusty Roof Replacement - 1968 Cougar
If you have an old car that came with a vinyl top, chances are that you
have some rust issues in the roof. This was the case with Andrew's car - a
1968 Mercury Cougar that his grandparents bought brand new in '68. In this
video, Andrew takes matters into his own hands to replace his rusted roof
skin with a solid donor roof from another car. He is by no means a
restoration expert, just an amateur trying to save some money and save his

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.
Supercharged LSA Powered 1969 Camaro "Lou's Change" Floor & Trunk Replacement Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com/louschange - In this chapter, we attacked some of
the rusty metal in the floor and trunk floor sections on the supercharged
1969 Camaro called
Lou's Change. The replacement panels came are OER brand pieces from
Classic Industries, and the welding was handled by an HTP MIG 200 welder.
The trick is to not be too aggressive when trimming the old or new pieces
to make them fit tightly.

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.
