1965 Chevelle Quarter Panel Install Pt. 2 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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. Part 2.
1965 Chevelle: Door Skin 2 - Installation V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - In this video, we install a new set of doorskins on our 1965 Chevelle. These new, rust-free, arrow-straight skins came from OPGI, and when installed properly, are a quick and relatively easy way to renew an old set of doors. We prepped our inner structure by treating it to a complete sandblasting and a bath in PPG DP90 epoxy primer. We then did a little work to the skin to get it ready, then we used a 3M Automix doorskin adhesive to bond the skin to the inner structure. The trickiest part is working the new doorskin over the inner structure, but we used a cool tool from Dent Fix to power the flange over smoothly and quickly.
1965 Chevelle Engine Upgrades V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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.
1965 Chevelle: Block Sanding Polyester Filler Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - After the body filler work was completed, we sprayed the body of our 1965 Chevelle with a high-build polyester filler from Standox. The sprayable polyester will fill all the minor sanding scratches and any pinholes in the body filler below. The polyester will also allow body technician John to refine the car's final shape, making the panels glass-straight and the body lines crisp.
