Episode 70 Part 2 Seamless floor pan installation, 1965--70 Mustang, Autorestomod
We finish the installation of the National Parts Depot Mustang floor pan in our weekend
project 1968 Mustang
hardtop! In this episode we only replace the sections needed. Gary Jackson
shows how to cut, weld, and grind a pan for a seamless repair that will
give a factory look without using the full pan. This method will also be
easier due to less welding and grinding.

Daredevil Driving Stunts in a 1936 Plymouth: "Trial by Torture" 1935 Chrysler Corporation
more at http://cars.quickfound.net/
Toughness of the 1936 Plymouth is demonstrated by showing how components,
structures, and the entire vehicle are "torture tested." Includes several
good shots of deliberately rolling cars, and daredevil driving by "Hell
Drivers' such as Lucky Teter and Jimmy Lynch.

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise
reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound,
though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
Plymouth was a marque of automobiles based in the United States, produced
by the Chrysler Corporation and its successor DaimlerChrysler. Production
was discontinued on June 29, 2001 in the United States.
The Plymouth automobile was introduced on July 7, 1928. It was Chrysler
Corporation's first entry in the low-priced field, which at the time was
already dominated by Chevrolet and Ford. Plymouths were actually priced
slightly higher than their competition, but offered all standard features
such as internal expanding hydraulic brakes that the competition did not
provide. Plymouths were originally sold exclusively through Chrysler
dealerships. The logo featured a rear view of the ship Mayflower which
landed at Plymouth Rock. However, the Plymouth brand name came from
Plymouth Binder Twine, chosen by Joe Frazer for its popularity among
The origins of Plymouth can be traced back to the Maxwell automobile. When
Walter P. Chrysler took over control of the troubled Maxwell-Chalmers car
company in the early 1920s, he inherited the Maxwell as part of the
package. After he used the company's facilities to help create and launch
the Chrysler car in 1924, he decided to create a lower-priced companion
car. So for 1926 the Maxwell was reworked and re-badged as the low-end
Chrysler "52" model. In 1928, the "52" was once again redesigned to create
the Chrysler-Plymouth Model Q. The "Chrysler" portion of the nameplate was
dropped with the introduction of the Plymouth Model U in 1929.
Great Depression, 1940s and 1950s
While the original purpose of the Plymouth was to serve a lower-end
marketing niche, during the Great Depression of the 1930s, the marque
helped significantly in ensuring the survival of the Chrysler Corporation
in a decade when many other car companies failed. Beginning in 1930,
Plymouths were sold by all three Chrysler divisions (Chrysler, DeSoto, and
Dodge). Plymouth sales were a bright spot during this dismal automotive
period, and by 1931 Plymouth rose to the number three spot among all cars.
In 1931 with the Model PA, the company introduced floating power and
boasted, "The economy of a four; the smoothness of a six." In 1933 Chrysler
decided to catch up with Ford and Chevrolet with respect to engine cylinder
count. The 190 cu in version of Chrysler's flathead-6 engine was equipped
with a downdraft carburetor and installed in the new 1933 Plymouth PC,
introduced on 17 November 1932. However, Chrysler had reduced the PC's
wheelbase from 112 in (284.5 cm) to 107 in (271.8 cm), and the car sold
poorly. By April 1933, the Dodge division's Model DP chassis, with a 112 in
(284.5 cm) wheelbase, was put under the PC body with DP front fenders,
hood, and radiator shell. The model designation was advanced to PD and the
car was marketed as the "DeLuxe" 1933 Plymouth. This car sold very well and
is the 1933 model most commonly found in collections. The PC became the
'Standard Six'. It had been the 'Plymouth Six' at introduction, and was
sold through to the end of 1933, but in much lower numbers. It is
consequently in the minority in collectors' hands today. In 1937, Plymouth
(along with the other Chrysler makes) added safety features such as flat
dash boards with recessed controls and the back of the front seat padded
for the rear seat occupants. The PC was shipped overseas to Sweden,
Denmark, and the UK, as well as Australia. In the UK it was sold as a
'Chrysler Kew', Kew Gardens being the location of the Chrysler factory
outside London. The flathead 6 which started with the 1933 Model PC stayed
in the Plymouth until the 1959 models.
In 1939 Plymouth produced 417,528 vehicles, of which 5,967 were two-door
convertible coupes with rumble seats. The 1939 convertible coupe was
prominently featured at Chrysler's exhibit at the 1939 New York World's
Fair, advertised as the first mass-production convertible with a power
folding top. It featured a 201 cu in, 82 hp version of the flathead six
For much of its life, Plymouth was one of the top-selling American
automobile brands; it together with Chevrolet and Ford were commonly
referred to as the "low-priced three" marques in the American market...
How to MIG weld a patch in car floor pan. E30 bmw.
This is my first welding how to video. I have been welding new steel into
my 325i sport for the last 6 months. When I started there were not a lot of
HD youtube videos on mig welding on cars so I thought I would make one.
I used 1.8mm steel sheet, a Lincoln Powermig 180c welder and 0.6mm super
arc wire with a Argonshield shielding gas.
I am sorry my head is in the way of some of it. I didn't realise until I
looked through the footage later.

Aftermarket pans were around $100 each and
still didn't cover all the area I needed to replace.
I got the sheet metal for free from an industrial
shelving unit I found. It's the same gauge too!

DIY POR15 - How To Apply POR15 To a Floorpan on 66 Mustang
For Supplies visit http://CollisionBlast.com/Supplies - FREE access to
training at http://CollisionBlast.com - POR-15® is a high performance
coating designed for ap- plication directly on rusted or seasoned metal
surfaces and concrete. POR-15® is non-porous and seals and protects many
surfaces from water, chemicals, salt, and other cor- rosive contaminants.
POR-15® is an effective anti-corrosive and rust preventive coating that
offers superior chemical resistance due to its dense, cross-linked
molecular compo- sition and non-porous attributes.
For over 25 years, POR-15® has been applied on thou- sands of vehicles and
structures around the world. Our restoration products can be found in
Antique Car Muse- ums, Classic Car Shows, hundreds of body and restoration
shops, as well as on government and local municipality trucks and
equipment. Extend the life of any metal by pro- tecting it with POR-15®.
The following is a small sample of how people are using our products:
• Frame Coating
• Snow Plows
• Holding Tanks
• Air Conditioner & Refrigerator Parts
• Field Equipment
• Any metal surface suffering from corrosion
What makes POR-15® so tough?
When you apply POR-15® to a rusted metal surface, the first thing you
notice is the flow of the product and the way it seems to penetrate the
metal. What you are seeing is the amazing tenacity of POR-15® and the way
it chemically re- acts to "grab" onto rusted metal like nothing you have
ever seen! We call this polydigitalTM adhesion, and nothing else can match
its' bond strength and resilience.
This first image displays the polydigitalTM (multi finger like) adhesion
that POR-15® exhibits on any surface. POR-15® penetrates the metal, con-
crete, or wood and grabs
hold of it to create a bond unlike any other. Once fully cured, the surface
dries to a rock hard, non-porous barrier protecting against rust and

well its' unique molecular structure, other coatings merely attach
themselves to the surface.

cure bond. These coatings will chip and peel easily when something impacts
the surface. That's why polydigital adhesion is a su- perior technology
exclusive to POR-15 alone.
