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" Sheetmetal Install Video V8TV
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 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 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!
