Quick Tech: Box Your Arms V8TV

http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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.

MIG Welding Tips: Exhaust Tubing V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - Here's a quick tip on welding Exhaust tubing with your MIG welder... do it HOT and FAST! This technique shows how to burn deep-penetrating, low-profile welds that look great on their own or can be easily dressed for polishing or coating. The secret is to use high amperage (or heat) and a series of quick tack welds, and give the work time to cool between each tack! Resist the urge to seam-weld the whole tube... you'll have to run your welder too "cold" to prevent burn through, resulting in welds that are stacked high on the tubing, not only looking poorly, but also not penetrating as deep as you'd like.





V8TV Tool Tech: HTP Tig Welding Tungsten Sharpener
http://www.v8tvhow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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.

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 Body Filler Stage - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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 Paint Spray Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 -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!
