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.

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!





1969 Pontiac Firebird Front Suspension Install Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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!





1965 Chevelle Quarter Panel Install Pt. 1 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - PART 1 - Quarter panels are one of the most rust and dent-prone parts of musclecars, and our 1965 Chevelle had some of each. Mostly dents. Thankfully, OPGI came out with new reproduction full quarter panels for 1965 Chevelles. In this video, we show you how to remove your old panel and install the new. Also applies to other GM A Bodies like Skylarks, Cutlasses, GTOs and others.

http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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.





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.

1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy" Bodywork Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - The 1969 Firebirds have a lot of pieces that comprise the nose, and in this video, we go through the process of making them all fit on our '69 'Bird called "Routy". We mocked up the bumper using the original parts, then threw them all away in favor of a new bumper, headlight bezels, rubber fillers, and brackets from Classic Industries. Then we modified the reproduction 1969 Trans Am hood to accommodate the Ram Air Pans and scoop inserts. Finally, the car was bodyworked with 3M fillers and Standox sprayable polyester. A lot happens here, you might want to watch it a couple times!

1969 Firebird "Routy" Project Updates V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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!
