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.
1962 Galaxie Weatherstrip and Felt Install Video Pt. 2 V8TV
Is the climate windy and wet in your muscle car? While preparing our 1962
Galaxie 500 XL ragtop for a recent road trip, we noticed just how bad the
car rattled. It turns out that all the window "fuzzies" were dried out,
allowing the window glass to rattle in its tracks. All the car's window
and door weatherstrip was deteriorated, too. This tech feature shows how
to replace these items with new parts from Dearborn Classics. Part 2.
1965 Chevelle: Door Skin 2 - Installation V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - In this video, we install a new
set of doorskins on our 1965 Chevelle. These new, rust-free,
arrow-straight skins came from OPGI, and when installed properly, are a
quick and relatively easy way to renew an old set of doors. We prepped
our inner structure by treating it to a complete sandblasting and a bath in
PPG DP90 epoxy primer. We then did a little work to the skin to get it
ready, then we used a 3M Automix doorskin adhesive to bond the skin to the
inner structure. The trickiest part is working the new doorskin over the
inner structure, but we used a cool tool from Dent Fix to power the flange
over smoothly and quickly.
1968 Camaro Roof and Window Rust Repairs Video V8TV
http://wwww.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - Our 1968 Camaro had some bad rust around
the windows thanks to the original vinyl top holding moisture and corroding
the steel below. In this video, we repair all that with a some new
panels from Classic Industries, some 3M cutting and grinding tools, our HTP
MIG 200 welder, and a Body Solder kit from Eastwood. As always, we
strive for an undetectable repair.
1971 Olds "S71" Fender Patch V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - We're beginning the bodywork on
our 1971 Olds project, and we're trying to save all the original steel if
possible. This time, we're patching the lower fenders, as these cars -
all GM "A" bodies in general - seem to have rusty holes in their fender
bottoms. The design allowed them to hold leaves, pine needles, and dirt
at the bottom of the fenders, and this debris eventualy rusted them from
the inside out. We obtained some patches from YearOne, and today we're
cutting out the old and installing the new. We fabricated new supports to
replace the rusty backside braces to keep the rust away for good.
