Quick Tech: Box Your Arms V8TV

http://www.v8tvshow.com - So you want the strength of boxed and reinforced suspension parts but don't have the reinforced wallet to make it happen with trick new parts? Or maybe your particular ride does not have an aftermarket beefed-up control arm available. Here's the solution: Box up your stock control arms! Here, we sourced a pair of original GM lower control arms from our '65 Chevelle project. That car got new stuff, so we grabbed the extras, which happen to fit our 1968 Buick Riviera project. Which, by the way, is one of those cars that has very little in the aftermarket as far as parts are concerned, so we were happy to find that we could make Chevelle parts fit. Follow along as we media blast, then weld up our control arms for extra-strength. And although we didn't show it, they'll get new bushings someday as well.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #41: 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L88 427 Roadster
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek The Corvette changed for 1968, evolving into the 3rd generation for the American sports car. The sleek new styling looks like full speed standing still, a trait shared by most Corvettes. This week's Muscle Car Of The Week could be considered the top-gun of all '68 Corvettes, as it carries a 500+ HP 427 under the hood, an optioned named the "L88". L88 cars featured not only a distinctive hood, but a whole list of performance enhancements... the F41 performance suspension, J56 heavy duty brakes, a Muncie M22 4-speed transmission, and of course, the 12.5:1 compression 427 V8. The LeMans Blue roadster in the Brothers Collection is one of only 80 built in '68, and it might look like a nice Sunday cruiser, but it was a thinly disguised race car sold to the public!





1965 Chevelle Blog 6: Chassis Restoration V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - We had our 1965 Chevelle SS frame media blasted and stripped clean, and then it was time to give it a new protective coating. This time, we utilized the new Extreme Chassis Black Epoxy paint from Eastwood. We found it to have an accurate satin appearance, and it seems to have the guts to stand up to the road.





"Mr. Chevy" - A Period Perfect Gasser Chevy V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Vintage straight-axle cars, often known as "Gassers", are popular wherever they go. Maybe it's the sky-high stance or the cartoon-like appearance. Or perhaps it's the way these cars transport you to a simpler time when racers would try just about anything to go faster. Whatever it is, these cars draw crowds of people because they look like nothing else on the track. "Mr. Chevy" is a period-perfect example of a 1955 Chevy Hardtop gasser raced from 1968 through 1976 where it was parked. Larry Frees knew the original owner and rescued Mr. Chevy at an estate sale. Today, he shares the car with enthusiasts wherever he goes.

HOW TO: Installing VW Polyurethane Lower Control Arm Bushings without a Press
2003 VW TDI 1.9L Diesel Lower Control Arm Bushings are Hard to line-up, but with a bolt , some grease and some washers the small one is a breeze. The larger bushing requires force. I used an anvel with a screw type attached vise and an 8" block of 2x4 wood. Once again the grease was the key. For the big bushing you will need helping hands (it is a two person job).

How To Control Arm Bushing Removal at Home (without a torch) 1984 Chevrolet Truck C10 DIY
This video is showing one way I remove the control arm bushings from a 1984 Chevrolet truck C10 if you don't have a torch and with basic tools that most will have. After stripping these arms down and buying the new bushings and ball joints, I will recommend to anyone considering doing this - DONT. Just buy the complete control arm with all already installed and painted. The $100 you save (for 4 arms) doing it yourself is not worth all of the labor you'll put into it. Plus they probably still wont look as good. Check out my other videos like this on the link below: http://www.youtube.com/user/AGearHead4Life





Radical 1965 Corvette Road Racer Video Feature V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - This awesome 1965 Corvette built by the team at Performance Restorations in Mundelien, IL, was originally going to be a show car, but builder Brent Jarvis has been bitten by the road race bug. The result is a show quality car that sports a complete road race driveline and chassis, complete with a 900 horsepower all-aluminum big block Chevy engine, a clutchless 5-speed manual trans, huge brakes, and more. The cosmic paint scheme is old-school candy apple red over silver flake. Shot at the 2010 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational event.
