Cheap way to repair rust
Just a quick how-to on how to get rid of rust. This is NOT the way to do
it so it will last twenty years, this will simply make your car last a
couple years longer. Note that this will not work if you've got rust that
turned into a hole, only surface rust.
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...
Dealing with the First Signs of Underbody Rust on Your Old Car
Rust repair solutions:
Best rust repair product for your Mercedes and other old car. Stop the rust
early before it can grow into holes. Sealing the rust from any exposure to
moisture it the key to success. Normal paints, undercoating, conversion
coatings, primers and sealers will NOT do that.
Easy Rust Repair the 'Hack' Way -EricTheCarGuy
As you may know my 1993 Acura Vigor had some pretty bad water leaks into
the trunk due to rust issues. To repair them I needed to do a little body
work. In this video I show how to do body work using 'hack' methods to get
you by. In order to do this 'properly' it would have been best to cut out
the old rusted material and weld in new metal. I didn't feel that my $500
Acura Vigor was worth that effort so I did what you see here in this video.
As stated this method works very well for floor pans or other areas where
you're not necessarily going to see the finished product. Honestly, I don't
think things turned out so bad, in fact, I have a new appreciation for the
car now that I've done this work, despite the fact that the paint doesn't'
match. Perhaps one day I'll go back and finish it properly and respray the
entire car. For now, I have other work to do to keep this car in good

132674 / 1973 Pontiac Grand Am
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6pccq85
This restored to original 1973 Pontiac Grand Am has won multiple national
awards and been featured on the cover of High Performance Pontiac magazine.
It is probably the best 1973 Grand Am in the world and is one of the most
unique and interesting Pontiacs in the classic car hobby.
Recently frame-off restored, this solid and surprisingly complete first
year Grand Am was originally delivered to Friend Pontiac in Beaver
Pennsylvania. Its European inspired design translates well in correct GM
code 74 Florentine Red on top of bodywork that displays no signs of major
repairs and was undoubtedly very straight before the restoration started.
If you check out the photos closely, you can sight down the cars curvy
flanks and see that there are no ripples in the sheetmetal and panel
alignment is spot-on thanks to factory correct gaps and the 100% original
Pop this cars beaked hood and you'll find an original 400 cubic inch L65
engine that hasn't been torn apart since it left GM's Pontiac Michigan
plant almost 40 years ago. It's an extremely strong running engine which
idles so smoothly and drives so well that the previous owner decided to err
on the side of authenticity and leave it untouched. At the top of the
engine, a satin black air cleaner displays a correct "400-2" decal and
sends air into a correct 2 barrel carburetor that is fed through a correct
AC fuel filter. Below the carburetor, Pontiac's tried and true 400 wears
correct blue paint from its valve covers to its oil pan and displays
correct reproduction decals and chalk marks. On the right side of the
engine, the cars custom Harrison air conditioning system has been restored
to its proper state and includes a correct Frigidaire compressor, and on
the left side of the engine you'll find a fresh brake Booster and master cylinder.
Behind the big 6.5 liter engine you'll find an original turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed transmission that
sends power to a Safe-T-Track Posi-traction rear end with comfortable 3.23
gears. Holding that smooth drivetrain off the ground is an optional special
suspension with the firm ride option which includes computer selected
springs, firmer shocks, taller front spindles that were borrowed from the
F-body, and 1.125 front and .94 rear stabilizer bars. On top of that
serious handling hardware is a variable ratio power steering system that
has good feel and GM's standard power front disc and rear drum braking
system. The cars passive stock Exhaust
has been upgraded to a welded aluminized true dual system that features an
H-pipe and two chamber Flowmaster mufflers. The suspension, steering and
brakes have all been properly maintained and the chassis looks
exceptionally clean given the age and authenticity of the car. At the
corners, great looking 15 inch Pontiac snow flake wheels wear 225/70
Goodyear Eagle GT IIs. However, if you're more of a traditionalist, the
cars original finned hubcaps are included with the sale.
Inside this Pontiac, high style is the name of the game. The original
Oxblood vinyl interior is 100% intact and in spectacular condition with
rich looking Morrokide buckets that include both reclining backs and twist
adjustable lumbar support. The beautifully detailed dashboard houses a
great looking African Crossfire Mahogany gauge pod that contrasts well
against the cars highly detailed gauges and chrome trimmed air vents. At
the center of the dash, controls for the cars custom HVAC system and an
original Stereo Eight 8-track player sit above a pristine console that is
slightly canted toward the driver. At the sides of the seats, the nicely
preserved padded door panels include chrome handles for the doors and
windows next to upscale angled pull straps. The steering wheel is the cars
original optional sport wheel that features bight satin aluminum spokes and
a factory fresh Pontiac branded horn button. The original nylon blend loop
carpet looks great under heavy duty rubber floor mats, and the burgundy
headliner is exceptionally nice with no glaring issues or signs of age.
With the luxury and flair of a European sports sedan and the style and
grunt of a fire breathing American muscle car, this is one old Pontiac that
has personality by the buckets.

1974 Pontiac Grand Prix SJ
Here are some pictures after the car is 98% finished. We still need to
adjust the body and doors for a better fit. The paint is the original
factory Regatta Blue Acrylic Urethane. The body panels and glass and lenses
are 100% original as is the interior (except carpet is new).There was only
minor surface rust anywhere including under the vinyl top. Engine is the
factory matching numbers 455 punched out to a 462 with factory Ram Air
headers and Magnaflows. The car sounds great! I'll post a video with sound
soon. We have extra parts for this car if anyone needs help restoring
another Grand Prix.
