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.

http://www.v8tvshow.com - Our 1969 Pontiac Firebird project "Routy" was a
pretty clean car to start with, but we wanted to improve upon some previous

http://www.v8tvshow.com/louschange - In this chapter, we attacked some of
the rusty metal in the floor and trunk floor sections on the supercharged
1969 Camaro called
Lou's Change. The replacement panels came are OER brand pieces from
Classic Industries, and the welding was handled by an HTP MIG 200 welder.
The trick is to not be too aggressive when trimming the old or new pieces
to make them fit tightly.

http://www.v8tvshow.com - After the subframe was re-attached to our 1969
Pontiac Firebird "Routy," the reassembly began. First up was the
sheetmetal, namely the doors, fenders, core support, and the reproduction
steel Trans Am hood. We had to do a few tricks to make them all line up
correctly, but it wasn't too bad of a project. Here's how the process
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!

RS/SS Camaro from
Nickey Chevrolet in Chicago, featuring a high-performance 427 with a

call "Survivors." Shot at the 2010 Chicago World Of Wheels / Chevy

1968 Camaro "Reloaded" OER Trunk Floor Install Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The original trunk floor was not terrible in our
'68 Camaro "Reloaded"
project, but it had some surface pitting and rust that we didn't like.
The cure was a new OER trunk floor panel from Classic Industries. In
this video, we show you the steps to removing the old panel and welding in
the new one using an HTP MIG 200 welder.
1965 Chevelle Engine Upgrades V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Our '65 Chevelle drove in on a low-performance
350 cubic inch Chevy replacement engine that was reported to have less than
10,000 miles on it. Initially, we contemplated doing a late-model EFI
swap on this car, but then we thought we'd take a look at what we had and
see what kind of shape it was in. Turns out that the 350 is a parts-store
type replacement engine with 4-bolt mains and a very clean bottom end.
The cast iron heads and cam were not very exciting, so we used the Dynomation engine simulation
software to whip up a new recipe. In this installment, we clean up the
engine, repaint the short block, and install a new Comp Cams Xtreme Energy
cam, lifters, timing set, new Holley performance aluminum cylinder heads, a
Weiand Action Plus intake manifold, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor, some
Flowtech headers, and a Holley 670 Street Avenger camshaft. Some of the
parts we already had like the MSD unit, the intake, and the carb, but the
cam and heads are new. Here's how it went.

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.
