Using Body Lead
This video shows how to use body lead instead of bondo. I only had 10
minutes so I put as much as I could that is important. Start with a clean,
sanded surface so the tinning butter will bond correctly. This hood was
from the 1969 Mustang
restoration project from a few years ago. 90% of the body work on that car
was done with lead. One you learn how you'll never use bondo again!
West Coast Customs - Stallone's '55 Ford - Part 1
"Street Customs 2" Ep. 12 - Stallone's '55 Ford
Sylvester Stallone's upcoming movie, "The Expendables," pays homage to the
big action flicks of the 1980s and `90s, and will even include our own
California governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, in a cameo role. The film is
set to feature a 1955 Ford F100 truck, which had to be fully restored for
silver screen worthiness.
The customization experts at West Coast Customs would be the ones handling
the restoration efforts. After calling upon WyoTech students Owen Lubenow,
Rusty McClintock, and Matt Myers for assistance, the crew at WCC was able
to churn out three fully restored 1955 Ford F100s: two for the movie itself
and one for Stallone to keep. The ground-up restorations included metal
fabrication work and the installation of a 347-cubic-inch Ford small block
from ATK Engines, which reportedly put out 429 horsepower and 411
pound-feet of torque when fitted with an Edelbrock Total Power Package.
"The Expendables," written and directed by Stallone, features a full
billing of all-star action actors, including Stallone, Arnold
Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, and more. The movie
will be released on April 23, 2010.

This sinister 1969 Mustang
pro-tourer is a take-no-prisoners muscle car which is ready to compete,
drive or race anytime and anywhere!
All of this Mustangs solid
panels were stripped to bare metal and thoroughly worked to transform it
from a nice piece of machinery into a trophy winning piece of art. Once
that canvas was as close to perfect as possible, and displayed excellent
fit and finish, a dynamic coat of Raven Black urethane was expertly
applied, sealed in a glossy clearcoat shell and buffed to a fantastic
Pull the pins on this awesome Mustangs solid steel hood and you'll
find an 800 horsepower, 557 cubic inch
Jon Kaase V8 which twists out 750 lb./ft. of torque and wears some of the
best aftermarket components on the planet. At the top of the engine, a
bright blue air cleaner feeds a chrome 1050cfm Holley carburetor through a
K&N reusable filter which sits just inside the cars fully functional hood
scoop. Below that carburetor, a silver powder coated Jon Kaase alloy intake
is bolted between Kaase Boss 9 aluminum heads which have been fitted with
silver powder coated "Boss 557" valve covers and finished with chrome K&N
crankcase breathers. Below those heads, 10.4 to 1 pistons combine with a
roller cam to create explosive combustion; and in front of those heads, a
reliable points distributor sends fire through blue Jon Kaase racing wires
which have been fitted with MSD end caps. At the sides of the block, custom
2.25 inch Metalcrafters ceramic coated headers send vaporized dinosaurs
into a brutal sounding Exhaust system.
And at the front of the block, a Billet Specialties Tru Trac serpentine
system spins a chrome alternator and a high performance aluminum water pump
behind a full array of billet pulleys and a proven Be Cool aluminum
Behind the big 557, a fresh Tremec TKO500 5-speed manual transmission turns
a traditional nine inch Ford rear end which has been equipped with a
Detroit Locker center section, a Fab 9 housing and seat bending 3.90 gears.
Holding that driveline off the ground is a Heidts front and rear suspension
which includes polished tubular control arms and polished tie rod ends up
front, polished coil over shocks at all four corners, and Raven Black sway
bars at both ends of the car. After Metalcrafters installed the suspension,
they stiffened the frame by grafting Heidts subframe connectors into the
floor; and fabricated a custom Exhaust
system which sends spent gases from a ceramic coated H-pipe to either
mufflers with ceramic coated tail pipes or electronically activated cut
outs. Step on the throttle and a polished fuel tank supplies gas to a
finned electric fuel pump and fresh stainless fuel lines. Step on the
brakes and four wheel electronically assisted Wilwood power discs provide
serious resistance for the serious motor. All that stop and go flows
through 15 inch chrome Magnum 500 wheels that are wrapped in 215/70 front
and 275/60 rear BF Goodrich Radial T/As.
Peer inside this awesome '69 Mustang and you'll find a black and
silver interior that is, like the rest of the car, an exceptional mix of
both vintage and modern pieces. The seats are thick units which wear
traditional Clarion Knit covers under two piece racing belts. And the
like-new dual cowl dash holds a custom silver instrument panel with a full
assortment of Auto Meter Phantom gauges above an MP3 compatible Sony Xplod
CD player. Below the dash, a custom black and silver center console,
courtesy of the guys at Metalcrafters, holds a traditional chrome Hurst
shifter between Auto Meter auxiliary gauges and switches for the cars power
windows. And above the seats, a heavy duty vinyl headliner hangs over a
solid Metalcrafters roll bar which runs from the kick panels all the way to
the rear hatch. In front of the driver, a chrome Grant GT steering wheel is
bolted to a tilt steering column which is complete with a billet aluminum
hub and billet stalks. And Behind the cockpit, Infinity Kappa speakers hang
over a custom upholstered trunk which displays a cool satin finished "Boss

1969 Mustang Coupe Restoration

68 Chevelle SS Restoration
Daily Driver to Resto-Mod
Im writing you in regards to a 68 Chevelle SS that we built a little
while ago when I was the manager at a body shop in Portland, Maine. The
car was built mostly by myself, and the shop foreman, Dave Gribbin, on
nights and weekends.
There were some things done by the other employees while things were a
little slow, but Dave and I did the vast majority of the work after hours.
the car for a customer who had purchased it as a restored, albeit non
Matching, SS396 who had grown bored with the stocker after a few months...
After some shopping around at a few local body shops and custom shops,
he wandered into my office. After speaking to him at some length, (it
felt like a job interview) about my experience with hot rods, muscle
cars and drag racing (my family owned Winterport Drag way in Winterport
Maine for 12 years) and speaking with Dave for a while Jim decided
that he trusted us with the chore of painting the car... as all
projects do this one snowballed from a mild custom paint job to a frame
Jim DeWolfe was a budding car guy, he had
purchased a Chevelle SS, a 1968 big block Chevelle SS. The problem with
the Chevelle is that it was just another Chevelle, he wanted it to stand
out and be different so he brought it to us to see what we were about.
All of us being major gear heads and muscle car nuts finally
rubbed off onto Jim and soon a full blown project was in the works.
We started by completely disassembling the entire car, and within
a month (again working mostly nights and weekends) we had a bare frame
sitting on a lift in the shop. I ground down all the welding slag from
the original assembly and prepped it for paint. We hung the frame in
the booth and applied a fresh coat of single stage black urethane.
Everything on the frame was replaced except for the front upper and
lower control arms and factory spindles. We used Eibach prokit
springs, SSBC 12" front disc conversion, Hellwig hd swaybars and
Edelbrock tubular lower and turnbuckle uppers (that just happened to
be powder coated the correct red) along with chassis stiffeners to go
with the East Coast Performance sourced DTS 12 bolt that was fitted
with 9inch ford tube ends that allowed us to attach the SSBC 11" rear brake
kit with e brake. Before putting the body back on we ran the stainless
brake lines, ½ aluminum fuel line, set the gas tank in place, and prepped
of the floor for bed liner. All the brake hardware and the shocks were
painted the matching candy red from SEM color horizons. The Merlin 509's
block was painted the base silver bolted to the TCI turbo 400 and set in place
on energy suspension mounts. Whats funny is Jim originally ordered Merlins
Then the rear end was connected to the transmission via a color matched
Williams Brothers driveshaft. Next the body was lowered onto the fresh
chassis, once the body was bolted down on some more of energy
suspensions products, we set to straighten out the body from its 40
year life. Dave stripped the body to metal and aligned all the panels
before applying the high build primer letting one of the techs
final block the car and prep it for paint. We commissioned Tommy Mcneil
from Bonehead designs in Gilmington Iron Works New Hampshire to lay out the
awesome tribal flame job, before he was done he applied a drop shadow, and
outlined the flames with process blue.
The flames and pin striping also go into the door jambs, and for a
touch Tommy also applied a little hot rod pin striping around the trunk
Finishing touches on the outside include all new chrome trim,
new Hella headlights. On the inside we went mostly stock with a
gauge cluster, a couple auto meter gauges, Scat Pro Car seats, new
carpet and trim panels, along with recovered rear seat, and a Budnik
steering wheel for some flash. Dan Mayhew installed a kickin' sound system
inside with a glove box mounted eclipse head unit, which also controls
Jims I-pod, two kicker amps, and two kicker subs in the trunk in a box
that Jim built himself, with some mids and highs in the kick panels
and rear deck. For rolling stock, we chose 20x8 and 20x10 Coddington
smoothie IIs with 255-35s up front and 295-30s out back.
Todd Lapointe finished up the mechanical aspects including Lokar
cables and braided stainless flexi lines for the brakes, got everything
adjusted and tweaked. After an alignment, and a tune by the local carb guru
ready for a road test, and let me tell you this thing is fast..
This car was built in about 9 months of nights and weekends, it was a total
team effort, and it was a pleasure to work with someone who didn't mind
money it took to make the build correct.
How to Paint Rims Candy Paint & Real Flame
