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.

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.

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 went.

1969 Firebird Seam Sealer Video - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325- 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.
