http://www.v8tvshow.com - Classic and Muscle Cars were assembled using resistance spot welders when originally manufactured, and you can recreate those welds with the proper equipment.   In this video, we show you how to use the HTP Quick Spot II and Versa Spot 7000 resistance spot welders to reconstruct body panels.    You can see more of these welders at http://www.usaweld.com .

1970 Buick GS

The 1970 Buick GS 455 Stage 1 body shell survived its trip to the media blaster!    We were expecting heavy rust in the trunk floor and quarter panels, and we got what we expected.     The floors are amazingly solid considering the back half of the car was so corroded.     We have a giant stack of all new sheetmetal to rebuild this car, follow along to see the progress!

1965 Impala Body Filler

The '65 Impala is about to get a layer of sprayable polyester, the next step in making a mirror-flat paint job. There is lots of acreage on this car!

 

1965 Impala Poly

This is the '65 Impala after the application of the Glasurit sprayable polyester product. Being a thick liquid when sprayed, it fills any sanding scratches and pinholes in the body filler or sheet metal below. Next, we'll block sand this car to give the poly a flat, crisp surface before a prime coat and paint!

Many Chevrolet Corvette ZR1Z06 and GS models built between 2006 and 2013 are equipped with a dry sump engine lubrication system.

This high-performance system operates differently than a standard engine lubrication system and requires a special procedure when checking the engine oil level.

When adding engine oil to these vehicles, care must be taken to avoid overfilling the system. Overfilling may cause over-pressurization, which may result in damage to the engine and emissions system components. Also, if the amount of engine oil in the system is unknown due to repairs or other causes, the entire system should be drained and refilled with the correct amount of engine oil.
