Glyptal Application Process
In this video I detail the application process of a popular crankcase coating... that is... if crankcase coatings are actually popular. In this video, 98 coffee filters gave up the ghost. 238 q-tips paid the ultimate sacrifice. Almost a dozen brushes were executed, and 3 aerosol caps dispatched to their graves. Also, during the battle, several Dremel tools were maimed, one severely. Look, I'm doing everything I can to liven this topic up and make it interesting. Cleaning and painting are about the least interesting things someone else can watch. It's absolutely painful to edit, I know that much. It's not so bad for the guy doing the actual painting, but I'm doing my best to keep people's attention. This is a full month's work in a half hour. I had to space the job out because of my filming environment and the toxicity of materials I was working with. Take my warnings and advice in the video seriously. They're the words of someone who's done the job. They help set expectations. The most useful thing I can do is post links to other discussions that have already occurred, and to make room for places where people have posted their experience with failures of engine coatings. Despite my searching, I can not find any pictures or video. I found ONE plausible description of the kind of failure that can occur with improper application, but it was still a third-hand report. There are fans of this product posting in these threads. If you are considering this treatment, WEIGH THE PROS & CONS FOR YOUR BUILD, and YOUR HEALTH. Don't do this just because I did it. So until anyone provides photo or video evidence, here are the links to threads where it was discussed. This google search is mean. It's too direct and to-the-point. It might hurt somebody's feelings? Yes, I've read them all. http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=glyptal+caused+engine+f ailure&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

How to Split a Wishbone project
This video is a step by step, Do It Yourself (DIY) Hot Rod DVD that we produced and included in a split wishbone kit we used to offer at MB Coachworks. One of my goals when we decided to produce these DVDs was to accurratly depict what the large majority of Hot Rod builders might encounters when working on their cars: a small work space, access to basic power tools, a typical mechanics tool box, etc. We found the perfect "set" while visiting my parents home; their two car garage, was the very same place my Dad scratch built a dozen Hot Rods while raising a family and maintaining the familys' cars. This ones not to complicated and I hope it answers some questions and serves as an accurrate guide to those who are new to building Hot Rods. We also produced DVD's in this series that went over "Z-ing" a frame, mounting engines and transmissions, traditional steering and suspension systems for Hot Rods and some involved things like rebuilding a Model A body and what to look for when buying Flathead Ford V8 blocks. I could upload the others if they can help some people move their projects along.

Flathead v12 (lincoln zephyr) Rat Rod Truck.mpg
LOOK FOR PART 2 HERE: http://youtu.be/ZqySYf5dWrw This is a crazy creation by dad is building from spare parts from other projects. It is a 1935 truck that has been Z-framed, chopped, channeled and roadstered. To make the gears high enough for road use, it has 2 1935 4 speed transmissions (no syncro/double clutch). One is running backwards to act as a variable overdrive. The most exciting part is that it has a 1947 Lincoln Zephyr Flathead V12 with single header pipes coming off each cylinder. That makes for a very unique sound. Enjoy the video.
