1969 Chevelle SS496 Blog Part 34 - Deadline: SEMA, 2007 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Tonight, we re-installed some of the front
sheetmetal. Even though the panels were pre-aligned on the jig, the jig
had is different from the Chvelle's frame from a strength standpoint.
Even though the jig maintained the exact GM dimensions, the additional
strength of the jig did not account for the amount of flex inherent to a 40
year old GM frame. Be sure to allow some time to realign the panels if
you built your car on a fixture! Comment at http://www.v8tvshow.com/forum

http://www.v8tvshow.com - The momentus occasion has arrived - the SS496
Chevelle is painted! John shot 3 coats of PPG Deltron basecoat and 3
coats of PPG Concept 2002 clear for a great looking paint job right out of
the SATA gun. Special thanks to Greg Bartnett at Meramac Heights
Collision Center for letting us use their fantastic Blow Therm downdraft
booth to spray the car and bake it without the worry of dust in the finish.

1969 Chevelle SS496 Blog Part 47 - 8 Days Left to SEMA V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - New-style lighting not only looks great, it helps
keep your car safe. This time, we're starting the install of several
high-tech lighting products on the SS496 with the taillights. These are
called Digi-Tails from Spaghetti Engineering, and they're LED lights that
sequence or light up traditionally. You can see a demo video of these
here . We also painted the engine Poppy Red, the original Chevy engine
orange color to lend a stealth appearance to the SS496.

http://www.v8tvshow.com - Even though we just got the SS496 back from the

1969 Chevelle SS496 Blog Part 50 - 5 Days Left to SEMA V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - More front end items went on today - the grille,
trim, bumper... lots of resto items from Original Parts Group, Inc.
They've got tons of parts for GM "A" bodies, and we're happy they've had
what we need in stock. OPGI also had a new set of the original style valve
covers for this car, seeing that we dented up a set "clearancing" the
rocker arms. We also installed the trick headlights from Musclerodz.
These are 9007 bulb new-style glass lenses with a headlight relay kit.
Cool stuff. More to come!

1969 Chevelle SS496 Blog Part 44 - Dyno! SEMA, 2007 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The moment of truth... the SS496's big block
Chevy engine finally came to life on the Fast Times Dyno! The Lunati
reciprocating assembly under Holley heads and intake fired by an MSD
Digital E-Curve Distributor spun it's way to over 550 HP and 572 Ft. Lbs.
of torque at just 4400 RPM, and it idles smoothly at 750 RPM. The 150 HP
NOS Nitrous shot will push this motor
right up to the 700 HP mark on the track. The torque comes in bigtime and
low in the rpm range producing a nice, big, flat torque curve that is going
to be great fun to drive!
