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.
Splitter's 541 Inch Pontiac Engine V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - We turned to the Pontiac pros at Butler
Performance for insight on building Splitter's street / strip / road course
engine. This one has to do it all, so the parts need to be carefully
chosen to get the job done. David Butler takes us through the parts and
explaines his choices.
Pontiac Performance Tips from Butler Performance V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Certain engine builders specialize in specific
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 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.

1969 Firebird Project "Routy" Introduction V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 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.
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 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.

For those of you paying attention and noticed the numbers aren't the same
on the screenshot, its because we made another few runs, but didn't tape
them. We'll upload a pic soon.
