http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - Our latest project car - a 1969 Pontiac Firebird named "Routy" - has finally entered the building. It has been patiently waiting in storage in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin, and owner Steve Prouty finally got a break in the weather and hauled it to the V8TV shop. The car is in pretty good shape, we don't anticipate any major panel replacement or real surprises, but we'll see when we get into the project. Here's the intro video with the car, and the other "goodies" Steve brought down from America's Dairyland.

We've finished the '69 Firebird, and we're really happy with the way the
car looks and drives! Check out the V8TV "Routy" Microsite for thousands

1969 Pontiac Firebird Project Teardown V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - Tearing down muclecars to their
bare bones can be a big mess. Luckily for us, this phase of our project
1969 Pontiac Firebird named "Routy" went pretty well. Since the car was
already mostly disassembled, it came apart fast, and we didn't have to
change the name to "Rusty". Now that the car is blown apart and on the
Autotwirler rotisserie, it's next stop is the media blaster where the
piece-parts and underside will all be stripped of the flaky paint and
undercoating residue. Then we'll know the real truth.. if this car is as
clean as it claims to be, or if there are any secrets hiding under the
1969 Firebird "Routy" Painted DuPont Hot Hues Red Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - After completing all the bodywork on our 1969
Pontiac Firebird, we disassembled the body to paint the tub with DuPont Hot
Hues Red Hot Meltdown 2-stage urethane. After the red had flashed, the
crew masked off the jambs and sprayed them with DuPont Clear. Then the
fenders, doors, hood, and other parts were shot red, and the jambs and
backsides cleared. It looks good in red!
1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy" Floor Replacement - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Our 1969 Pontiac Firebird project "Routy" was a
pretty clean car to start with, but we wanted to improve upon some previous
repairs in the floor and trunk floor area. In this installment, we
replace the driver's side floor pan with a 1-piece replacement from Classic
Industries. There are tips in this video that apply to any musclecar
1965 Chevelle Quarter Panel Install Pt. 1 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - PART 1 - Quarter panels are one of
the most rust and dent-prone parts of musclecars, and our 1965 Chevelle had
some of each. Mostly dents. Thankfully, OPGI came out with new
reproduction full quarter panels for 1965 Chevelles. In this video, we
show you how to remove your old panel and install the new. Also applies
to other GM A Bodies like Skylarks, Cutlasses, GTOs and others.
1969 Firebird "Routy" Trunk Floor Replacement Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - The trunk floor area in our 1969
Pontiac Firebird "Routy" was looking pretty rough, so we elected to use an
assortment of repair panels from Classic Industries to replace the rust and
previous damage repairs. The process went pretty smoothly, and we were
able to butt-weld and plug weld the new pieces in leaving a factory
appearance with no evidence we were ever there. A coat of Eastwood Epoxy
Primer will help keep them rust free for good.
1969 Pontiac Firebird Project: Body Media Blasted V8TV
The moment of truth...our project 1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy" came home
from the media blaster. We had the interior, underside, trunk, and
firewall of the body tub blasted, along with stacks of smaller parts like
the inner fender wells, the radiator core support, and all the bumper
brackets. We also had the complete subframe and suspension parts
blasted, but that's a different story. This time, we're taking a closer
look at the condition of the body. This car had many previous repairs,
and it's not really fair for us to point out the details of previous work,
but we think it's important to illustrate what we found and to make some
observations on what we're starting with.
1969 Firebird "Routy" Final Paint Spray Video #3 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - The final video covering the paint
process on our 1969 Pontiac Firebird project "Routy." This time, we're
laying out the stripe design and spraying the DuPont silver and Gun Metal
stripes. Later, we do the initial wetsanding with the 3M Trizact system,
including the new 3M Denibbing gun. Lastly, we polish the car using 3M
products. Next is the final assembly and installation of Holley's Avenger
1969 Pontiac Firebird Front Suspension Install Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - We reassembled our restored front
suspension with some new tricks to make our 1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy"
drive and handle better. First we replaced all the stock worn-out control
arm bushings with some new Global West Del-A-Lum bushings for minimal
deflection and smooth articulation. Then we replaced all the loose
steering components with new parts from Classic Industries, including a new
steering box, tie rod ends, center link, ball joints, idler arm, and
pittman arm. Once we could put the wheels back on, we rolled the subframe
under the body, aligned it, and bolted it up. Out back, we added some
Del-A-Lum bushings to the Detroit Speed & Engineering 3" drop leaf springs
and put the rear axle assembly back in the car. Classic Industries had
more hard-to-find nuts and clips for the front leaf spring mounts. Now we
can hang all the sheetmetal back on the car and start the panel alignment!

Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.

SEMA 2008 Projects: 1938 Chevy and 1967 Camaro V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - The SEMA show provides an annual
deadline to finish custom cars and hot rods of all sorts, and typically,
John Wargo at The Custom Shop in Flanagan, IL, builds several of each.
This year, John and his crew are hard at work completing a fully customized
1938 Chevy pickup truck and a trick 1967 Camaro for the show. At this
shooting, they had 1 month to left.
1965 Chevelle: Sprayable Polyester - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - All the body filler on our 1965 Chevelle project
has been block-sanded straight, bringing the car one step closer to paint
application. The next step is to apply several coats of Standox Sprayable
Polyester .. a high-build sprayable body filler intended to fill any
pinholes or sanding scratches in the body filler layer below. Tiny
pinholes and sanding scratches can be barely detectable in filler, but they
become magnified under the shiny paint and clear coat of final paint, so
it's crucial to take whatever steps you can to eliminate them from the
car's surface before spraying paint. We applied several coats of the
Standox product, which leaves a highly textured surface when hardened,
which might appear to be a step backwards in the straightening process.
However, most of what you see here will all be block-sanded off, leaving a
solid white layer of perfectly smooth substrate ready for the final
application of primer before paint. When properly sanded, the poly leaves
no traces of pinholes or spreader marks, and it sands smoothly with minimal
effort. But you'll see the whole block sanding process in the next
chapter of our '65 Chevelle.
