1965 Chevelle Quarter Panel Install Pt. 2 V8TV

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: Sprayable Polyester - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - All the body filler on our 1965 Chevelle project
has been block-sanded straight, bringing the car one step closer to paint
application. The next step is to apply several coats of Standox Sprayable
Polyester .. a high-build sprayable body filler intended to fill any
pinholes or sanding scratches in the body filler layer below. Tiny
pinholes and sanding scratches can be barely detectable in filler, but they
become magnified under the shiny paint and clear coat of final paint, so
it's crucial to take whatever steps you can to eliminate them from the
car's surface before spraying paint. We applied several coats of the
Standox product, which leaves a highly textured surface when hardened,
which might appear to be a step backwards in the straightening process.
However, most of what you see here will all be block-sanded off, leaving a
solid white layer of perfectly smooth substrate ready for the final
application of primer before paint. When properly sanded, the poly leaves
no traces of pinholes or spreader marks, and it sands smoothly with minimal
effort. But you'll see the whole block sanding process in the next
chapter of our '65 Chevelle.
1969 Chevelle SS496 Blog Part 19 - Deadline: SEMA, 2007 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - Tonight, the crew taped the car
and sprayed a coat of sprayable polyester - or "Bodyman In A Can" according
to John. It goes on thick, covers all he sanding scratches, and sands like
chalk. More sanding tomorrow! Discuss this project at

65 Mustang Fastback Restoration Project
This is my 1965 Mustang
Fastback I rescued from a field rusting away. I finished it around July of
2008 in my back yard garage with no professional assistance at all. It took
me about 26 months to complete. It has a 302 Ford motor and an 5 Speed
manual transmission. I restored this car to the information on the original
data plate on the door that included the body color and interior. The
stripe is unique in that I added a darker red to the Poppy Red body color
to get a stripe that is a little darker but blends in with the factory
color. This car features four wheel disc brakes made from all Ford parts.
