Sometimes you need hardware store grade nuts and bolts for your project, and they often times come with colored dye on them. This stuff can be a pain and a time killer to remove, but we found that Eastwood Fast Etch zaps it off quickly.
In the old days, one could pull dents by drilling holes in panels and yanking them out with a slide hammer. Today, tools like the HTP Stud Setter allow you to not only pull dents without leaving holes in them, but also to shrink metal and install trim studs with the same tool. (Anyone restoring a muscle car knows what a pain replacing those welded-on trim studs can be!) Here, Nathan Newberry takes us through the process of fixing some dings in a hood structure with the HTP tool.
Our 1968 Camaro had some bad rust around the windows thanks to the original vinyl top holding moisture and corroding the steel below. In this video, we repair all that with a some new panels from Classic Industries, some 3M cutting and grinding tools, our HTP MIG 200 welder, and a Body Solder kit from Eastwood. As always, we strive for an undetectable repair.
The seats in our 1962 Ford Galaxie were in need of some attention, so we took them to the guys at HyTech Auto Interior to be recovered. In this video, Matt Sebastian takes us through the steps to turn an old worn out seat into a brand new one using some covers from Dearborn Classics.

A smooth and shiny restoration starts long before the paint is sprayed. Properly fitting body panels, crash damage and rust repair, and attention to detail in the bodywork all contribute to a precise fit and a shiny finish. In this two part video series, we transform a damaged and disassembled 1967 Camaro with some new body panels from Classic Industries, and go through the body work process with Evercoat Quantum1 body filler and Super Build 4:! sprayable polyester. The final stages include spraying the custom three tone paint job, polishing and buffing.
