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 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 Body Filler Stage - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - After all the panels were aligned and all the dents pulled, our 1965 Chvelle moved into the body filler stage. Our body technition John started the process by grinding the steel panels to achieve a mechanical bond as well as a chemical bond, then began mixing and applying the Marson Mar-Glass fiberglass filler to the structural areas and seams, followed by a coat of Marson Platinum Plus filler over the rest of the car. Although the filler was applied over large areas, John sanded most of it off in a process that refined the shape of the car, straightening minor waves and surface imperfections. The filler was followed up by a new 3M glaze applied by a new 3M Dynamic Mixing System applicator gun. The glaze filles remaining surface scratches and pinholes, and the gun applicator does all the mixing for you, ensuring quick, accuratly mixed glaze (and filler) with no pinholes and reduced waste. The entire car then went through a block sanding process. The next step: Standox Sprayable Polyster.
