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.

1965 Chevelle Paint Spray Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - All the sanding and preparation work is finally complete, and we were ready to spray the DuPont BMW Estoril Blue on our 1965 Chevelle. After all the primer was wetsanded to a 600 grit finish, body technician Nathan Newberry wiped the surface down with wax & grease remover and sprayed the body with DuPont Hot Seal sealer to create a barrier between the basecoat color and the primer. Next came the DuPont Chroma Premiere basecoat. Nathan sprayed several coats to completely cover the body shell, then we masked the outside surfaces and sprayed clear on the door jambs and areas that could not be cleared once the car is reassembled. Next up were the doors, fenders, hood, deck lid, hinges, etc. All were checked with the 3M SunGun for accuracy. We're going to assemble the car in basecoat and clear it assembled... stay tuned for that one!





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.

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.

PST's new Catapult® Billet Aluminum Trailing Arms
A new breed of trailing arms from the industry leader in musclecar technology -- PST. Catapult® Billet Aluminum Lower Trailing Arms with Alu-Max® Pivot Joints are the finest trailing arms available for your GM A-body. For pricing and ordering info, click here: https://www.p-s-t.com/pc-4943-618-billet-style-chevrolet-chevelle-malibu-el -camino-monte-carlo-1964-72.aspx Stock lower trailing arms are flimsy and weak, leading to poor handling and excessive wheel hop. Most of the aftermarket offers conventional fabricated steel trailing arms with polyurethane bushings -- a design that is very stiff, but does not allow for the axle to move freely throughout the range of motion. This can cause a bind in the rear suspension, leading to snap oversteer and unpredictable handling. PST's Catapult® Billet Aluminum Trailing Arms solve this problem with an innovative solution that delivers smooth, consistent, predictable handling for your GM musclecar. Starting with a solid block of 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum, we machine a sleek superstructure that yields an incredible strength-to-weight ratio. Each end is fitted with an Alu-Max® Pivot Joint -- a low-friction spherical joint that allows for 30 degrees of articulation. The Alu-Max® Pivot Joint is comprised of two Delrin® races and a lightweight hard anodized, 7075-T6 aerospace grade aluminum spherical ball. The sway bar mounting holes allow for the installation of any stock or aftermarket sway bar that mounts in the factory location. A military spec black anodizing is applied to the entire superstructure and the arm is finished off with a white PST and Catapult® logo. Get the ultimate trailing arm for the street, strip, or track -- order today! Be sure to pick up a set of matching Catapult® Adjustable Upper Trailing Arms and Frame Reinforcement Braces to complete the package. Our upper trailing arms feature a bulletproof steel construction and a low-friction Alu-Max® Pivot Joint, and can even be adjusted on the vehicle to change the pinion angle - crucial to lowering your 60 foot times, increasing traction, and reducing wheel hop! The Frame Reinforcement Braces triangulate the upper and lower trailing arm mounts for added strength and driving performance. These braces are pre-bent to contour to the floor of the vehicle, allowing for installation without modification.

1965 Chevelle Quarter Panel Install Pt. 1 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - PART 1 - 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.





1966 GTO Part 7: Chassis Modifications V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Part of our 1966 GTO's plan includes a killer suspension system and a beefed-up chassis to support it, so we disassembled the stock stuff, popped the body off the frame, and went to town. First, the GTO's skeleton was media blasted clean of all rust, scale, and old paint. Next, we fabbed up some supports and TIG welded in some plate steel to box up the originally open frame rails for strength. Then we began to test fit the Air Ride Technologies Street Challenge suspension system... more on this later, but it's the key to making this old Goat handle like a new 'Vette!





V8TV Tool Tech: HTP Tig Welding Tungsten Sharpener
http://www.v8tvhow.com - TIG welding is all about precision - and you need to keep that tungsten point sharp when welding. Bench grinders work, but unless you have one dedicated to your tungsten sharpening, you may be contaminating your tungsten with debris from your grinding wheel. The solution is this tungsten sharpener from HTP.





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 quickly.





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.
