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.

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 Pontiac Firebird Project Teardown V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Tearing down muclecars to their bare bones can be a big mess. Luckily for us, this phase of our project 1969 Pontiac Firebird named "Routy" went pretty well. Since the car was already mostly disassembled, it came apart fast, and we didn't have to change the name to "Rusty". Now that the car is blown apart and on the Autotwirler rotisserie, it's next stop is the media blaster where the piece-parts and underside will all be stripped of the flaky paint and undercoating residue. Then we'll know the real truth.. if this car is as clean as it claims to be, or if there are any secrets hiding under the primer.
