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 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 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" Holley Avenger EFI System Install Video Part 1 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - After our 1969 Pontiac Firebird was painted, we made the jump to Electronic Fuel Injection using the Holley Avenger EFI system . We were impressed with the completeness of the kit, that it came with not only the ECM, throttle body, and hand-held controller, but also the complete fuel system down to the hose clamps. We used an MSD Pro-Billet distributor for the ignition duties. After a couple hiccups along the way... mostly ground related, our Pontiac 400 came to life and the system worked perfectly. It's easy to set up, tunes itself in learning mod, offers datalogging, expandability, and more. The drivability is sweet, the power is instant, and the car exhibits refined manners. The Avenger EFI system lived up to Holley's claims and then some.





1969 Pontiac Firebird Project Teardown V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 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 primer.

1965 Chevelle Paint Spray Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - All the sanding and preparation work is finally complete, and we were ready to spray the DuPont BMW Estoril Blue on our 1965 Chevelle. After all the primer was wetsanded to a 600 grit finish, body technician Nathan Newberry wiped the surface down with wax & grease remover and sprayed the body with DuPont Hot Seal sealer to create a barrier between the basecoat color and the primer. Next came the DuPont Chroma Premiere basecoat. Nathan sprayed several coats to completely cover the body shell, then we masked the outside surfaces and sprayed clear on the door jambs and areas that could not be cleared once the car is reassembled. Next up were the doors, fenders, hood, deck lid, hinges, etc. All were checked with the 3M SunGun for accuracy. We're going to assemble the car in basecoat and clear it assembled... stay tuned for that one!

Replacing the metal trunk lip that holds the trunk seal/weatherstrip. See how that metal lip is put together. Its a tedious task that has to be done, and it sure is easier to replace this metal with the trunk floor removed, but ohhhh how I wish I could hurry up and get the trunk floor installed and drive this 63 soon. But it has to wait until this lip is replaced.
