Pontiac V8 Water Pump Modification Tip Video V8TV "Routy" 69 Firebird
http://www.v8tvshow.com/69firebird - The Pontiac 400 V8 engine that we're using in our 1969 Firebird project called "Routy" came to us completely as a rebuilt log-block with all new parts inside, but we were charged with the task of doing the final assembly and detail work. This time, we're test-assembling the brackets and parts on the engine, and came across a great tip to help keep your Pontiac V8 engine running cool.
1969 Firebird "Routy" Trunk Floor Replacement Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 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.
Pontiac Performance Tips from Butler Performance V8TV

brands, and for Pontiac power, Butler Performance is in the forefront.
We visited Butler to get the lowdown on the latest in hi-po parts for
Pontiac V8s and to spec out a motor for project "Splitter." Here, David
Butler takes us through the shop and brings us up to speed on the latest in

1969 Pontiac Firebird Front Suspension Install Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 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!
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 Firebird "Routy" Final Paint Spray Video #3 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 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 EFI system.
1969 Firebird Seam Sealer Video - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - After the metalwork was completed on the bottom
side of our 1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy", we applied some Eastwood Epoxy
Primer to the underside and inside of the body shell to prevent rust and to
provide a base for the next steps. We then sealed all the seams with 3M
Automix Heavy Bodied Seam Sealer (8308) using their pneumatic applicator.
We like to mask off the seams with 3M tape, then apply the sealer, brush it
smooth, and then peel the tape before the sealer hardens. The sealer
ensures no moisture will creep between the panels and start to rust. Once
sealed up, we scuffed the primer and applied several coats of Eastwood 2K
Ceramic Chassis Black on the bottom and inside of the body. The 2K
Ceramic Chassis Black looks like the factory black used on chassis parts,
but is far more durable than regular paint.

1969 Firebird Routy Currie Rear Axle & Baer Brake Install Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - We're building this car to have awesome
drivability, and we wanted to use components that could stand up to some
occasional punishment. It's no secret that the Currie 9+ rear axle
systems are up to the challenge. We already had the Boyd's Junk Yard Dog
wheels and Nitto 555 tires, so we worked backwards and fit the rear axle to
the car and wheels. In this case, we used a custom narrowed Currie
housing loaded with a Nodular iron center section, 3.25:1 gears, a Detroit
Truetrac differential, and 31 spline Currie axles. The Truetrac is a nice
piece because it offers smooth, quiet operation, and locks automatically
when needed. Once it was painted and installed, we added a Baer Track 13"
rear disc brake kit. In front, we again used a Baer Track kit with 13"
rotors and dual piston calipers for awesome stopping power. An Eastwood
powder coated CPP master cylinder and stainless brake lines from Classic
Industries round out the system.
Wide-Track: 1959 Bonneville - /BIG MUSCLE
• Chuck Cushner
Slathered in Lamborghini orange paint and exuding a presence that is
anything but subtle, this 1959 Bonneville is a car that represents a peak
time in American automotive design. It was drafted before government
mandates and regulations stifled imagination and creativity, and takes us
back to an era when we still looked to the stars for inspiration. This is a
car that will stop you dead in your tracks and make you truly long for the
days when chrome was King, gas was a mere .25¢ per gallon, and where Elvis
Presley was the greatest thing the public had ever heard.
Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 350 cid

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.
