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 "Routy" Floor Replacement - V8TV
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
repairs in the floor and trunk floor area. In this installment, we
replace the driver's side floor pan with a 1-piece replacement from Classic
Industries. There are tips in this video that apply to any musclecar
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 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" Project Updates V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Our 1969 Pontiac Firebird project "Routy" is
going through the early phases of its transformation, with many small
detail items being checked off the list as we go. In this installment, we
fix rusty bodymounts and straighten some slightly damaged supports on the
subframe. Then we're repairing rust holes in the radiator core support,
inner fenders, and small holes in the body. We uncovered a patch in the
fender we didn't like, so we replaced it with new steel using some cool
butt-welding panel clamps from Eastwood. A quick spray with Standox
SprayMAX 2K Epoxy Primer keeps the part protected until the bodywork phase.
This stuff is cool.. it's a Standox 2k epoxy primer in an aerosol can.
That means it's got a primer and a catalyst in one container... you break
the seal on the can, and the two components mix inside the can. You have
to spray it out within about 1 week or it will harden in the can. It's
really tough stuff that sprays great over little repair areas like this
where you don't want to mix a whole gun full of material. The firewall was
welded up in anticipation of a Vintage Air air conditioning unit. The
subframe and front sheetmetal parts were sprayed with Eastwood Epoxy Primer
and Extreme Ceramic Chassis Black paint for long lasting protection and a
factory-like satin appearance. Finally, we installed some Global West
Del-A-Lum bushings in the front suspension pieces. Next phase... floor
and trunk floor repairs!
Episode 70 Part 2 Seamless floor pan installation, 1965--70 Mustang, Autorestomod
We finish the installation of the National Parts Depot Mustang floor pan in our weekend
project 1968 Mustang
hardtop! In this episode we only replace the sections needed. Gary Jackson
shows how to cut, weld, and grind a pan for a seamless repair that will
give a factory look without using the full pan. This method will also be
easier due to less welding and grinding.

1967 Nickey Camaro 427 RS/SS Vettefest Feature Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Back in 1967, Felix Lopez bought a 1967 Chevrolet
RS/SS Camaro from
Nickey Chevrolet in Chicago, featuring a high-performance 427 with a
4-speed and 3 2-barrel carbs. Amazingly, he still owns and shows the car
today. What's perhaps more amazing is that Lopez served an 8-year tour in
the Viet Nam War, making him and his Nickey Camaro great examples of what we
call "Survivors." Shot at the 2010 Chicago World Of Wheels / Chevy

Pontiac Firebird "Routy," the reassembly began. First up was the
sheetmetal, namely the doors, fenders, core support, and the reproduction

Discussing the basics of o/a welding, while welding up some holes in an old
fender, with a Victor torch setup. This is a really fun type of welding,
and easy to learn.
For the record, yes, I AM using the right flame, but my camera shows the
inner and outer flame as one gigantic flame.
