1965 Chevelle Quarter Panel Install Pt. 2 V8TV

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

1965 Chevelle: Door Skin 2 - Installation V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 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
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.
1965 Chevelle Body Filler Stage - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 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.

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.
1966 GTO - Painting The 2-Tone V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The GTO came to us in primer, but we didn't want
it to hit the streets on the Hot Rod Power Tour in boring light gray. So
the decision was made to shoot the car with a fun 2-tone paint scheme of
charcoal and Scarlet red in PPG basecoat to give the car an aggressive,
satin look. Other materials used include lots of 3M tape and mask paper.
Someday the car will receive some new bodywork and a more complete paint
job, but this is the deal for now.
