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.

1000 HP FOX Mustang TRZ Suspension Upgrades V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Upgrading rear control arms and a sway bar on a 1000 horsepower 1993 Mustang from TRZ Motorsports. This 1993 Mustang started life as a 5.0 ragtop, a respectable street cruiser at the time, but the owner wanted to take things up a notch or two. So now, its hiding a 1000 horsepower supercharged monster under the hood. The problem is that when you light this thing off and mash the throttle, you get loads of tire smoke rather than the speed rush you wanted. The fix is going to be increasing traction, and were starting with the rear suspension and some new parts from TRZ Motorsports.





1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy" Floor Replacement - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Our 1969 Pontiac Firebird project "Routy" was a pretty clean car to start with, but we wanted to improve upon some previous repairs in the floor and trunk floor area. In this installment, we replace the driver's side floor pan with a 1-piece replacement from Classic Industries. There are tips in this video that apply to any musclecar restoration.





1969 Firebird "Routy" Trunk Floor Replacement Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The trunk floor area in our 1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy" was looking pretty rough, so we elected to use an assortment of repair panels from Classic Industries to replace the rust and previous damage repairs. The process went pretty smoothly, and we were able to butt-weld and plug weld the new pieces in leaving a factory appearance with no evidence we were ever there. A coat of Eastwood Epoxy Primer will help keep them rust free for good.

homemade press , Pressing in control arm bushings
Homemade Hydraulic shop press with 20 ton jack. Pressing in energy suspension bushings and progress spherical bearings on honda civic lower control arms. 2x2" square steel 1/4" thick. 3/16 square tube works great too. The outside dimensions are about 21" tall x 18" wide. updates below. Update added thick top plates and a base. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN5KcTr4bQs - The most difficult part in making this frame with single top and bottom tube is you have to make sure the top and bottom square tubes is absolutely parallel to each other. Not only from side to side but from front and back. This is a little difficult , if you are welding , make tacks then check and adjust if necessary. If the tubes is not parallel then the part will try to come out when the force is applied. This is why the single top tube is not so great idea or if you look at a real press it has 2 tubes at the base where the part sits. - If all you have is 1/16 thick tube it will work with most bushings but you need to protect the top tube with a plate(i write about that below) - If you make this , try to protect the top bar by using a plate, you can see I have the black plate tied to the top tube , if you do not use a thick plate here to spread the load you can easily damage the top bar, if you look at the orange frame in the background you can see how that one is damaged. If you are pressing in some soft or easy bushings then you do not need that part but if you are pressing in something difficult that requires a lot of force then use something to protect the top. Wood press - there is a video on youtube about a wood press pressing in a wheel bearing it is amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krbrm1bN-Mg I tried wood to press out control arm bushings but they were so tight and the whole frame flexed so it did not work for me but maybe you can make it work.

1966 GTO: Final Air Ride Install Notes - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The last step in our GTO's Air Ride Technologies Street Challenge suspension system was to install the ride height sensors and Air Pod unit, and connect the wiring to the LevelPRO control unit in the dash. The system takes ride height inputs from the 4 sensors mounted around the car, then the Air Pod combination compressor / solenoid / tank / power unit sends the correct amount of air pressure to each airspring to keep the car level and at its user pre-set ride height. The system is very high tech, but it's simple to install.





Muscle Car Of The Week Video #42: 1969 Dodge Daytona
REVISED with CORRECTED ENDING This '69 Charger Daytona in the Brothers Collection is one of 502 built, and 1 of 294 with the 440 engine. With its aerodynamic nose piece and towering rear wing, this is definitely the most outlandish design from the muscle car era. But those features weren't added to shock and sell, they were shaped to be kings of the Nascar Super Speedways. In this episode of Muscle Car Of The Week, we'll tell you all about it
