1969 Chevelle SS496 Blog Part 27- Deadline: SEMA, 2007 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Sealing the seams of a car body before paint is
not really a glamourous job, but it makes all the difference in the world
when it comes to an overall clean and crisp look. This time, we show you
the trick John Blandford likes to use to make the seam sealer lines nice
and straight, not just globbed on like the originals were. He tapes off
the area to be sealed, then uses a pneumatic applicator gun to apply the 3M
sealer. This stuff keeps all the moisture out and leaves a finished
appearance. Paint is coming soon! Discuss this project at

http://www.v8tvshow.com - This time, we offer up a tip for not getting a
parts-store rental spring compressor stuck in a control arm... (duh)... and
then Kevin goes off on a rant about the misleading cheap paint job stories
found in magazines. Discuss this project 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.

http://www.v8tvshow.com - Some trim on old cars is anodized aluminum - it's
got a thin clear coating over polished aluminum. This kind of trim is
tricky to fix because you cannot just polish the anodized coating. Here,
we show you how to make aluminum trim shine like new. Comment on

http://www.v8tvshow.com - The wiring process has started on the SS496.
Kelle is installing a reproduction harness from American Autowire, and it
seems to be going well. The AAW harness is completely correct for the car,
and Kelle started by installing the wires on the dashboard and then
installing the dash unit into the car.

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 - 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 - 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 54: We Leave for SEMA Tomorrow V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - We've been working on this car for almost a
year, and now we're down to the last 36 hours before we load it on the
trailer and haul it to Las Vegas for the 2007 SEMA show. It's almost
ready, but we're still tackling details. We fixed the spring situation
with the help of OPGI, and we hope to fire the engine later tonight!
1965 Chevelle: Spraying Final Primer Video V8TV
Once the Standox Sprayable Polyester was block sanded to a 220 grit
surface, body tech John Blandford prepped our 1965 Chevelle's body for a
couple coats of DuPont Hot Prime primer. The Hot Prime is part of the Hot
Hues line, and provides the last sandable layer before final sealer and
then color. John sprayed the primer using a SATA KLC spraygun and the 3M
PPS cup system. The KLC HVLP low overspray primer and filler gun for its
ability to finely atomize heavier materials reducing the amount of sanding
needed for a flat surface, and the PPS cup system makes clean-up simple
with less solvent waste. The next chapter in the '65 Chevelle story...
spraying the color!
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!

1965 Chevelle: Sprayable Polyester - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - All the body filler on our 1965 Chevelle project
has been block-sanded straight, bringing the car one step closer to paint
application. The next step is to apply several coats of Standox Sprayable
Polyester .. a high-build sprayable body filler intended to fill any
pinholes or sanding scratches in the body filler layer below. Tiny
pinholes and sanding scratches can be barely detectable in filler, but they
become magnified under the shiny paint and clear coat of final paint, so
it's crucial to take whatever steps you can to eliminate them from the
car's surface before spraying paint. We applied several coats of the
Standox product, which leaves a highly textured surface when hardened,
which might appear to be a step backwards in the straightening process.
However, most of what you see here will all be block-sanded off, leaving a
solid white layer of perfectly smooth substrate ready for the final
application of primer before paint. When properly sanded, the poly leaves
no traces of pinholes or spreader marks, and it sands smoothly with minimal
effort. But you'll see the whole block sanding process in the next
chapter of our '65 Chevelle.

1969 Chevelle SS496 Blog Part 28 - Deadline: SEMA, 2007 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Tonight, we've reached a turning point... there's
color on the SS496! John mixed up some PPG sealer to cover the last prime
coat, then brewed up a batch of PPG Deltron basecoat in GM Butternut
Yellow. The first color application was on the door jambs, the trunk
jambs, and on the backside of the fender jambs and doors, hood edges,
header panel lip, tail pan, and other areas you can't spray with the car
assembled. Then a layer of PPG Concept 2000 clear was applied to bring
out the shine. It's bright! Discuss this project at

http://www.v8tvshow.com - Even though we just got the SS496 back from the
paint booth, we elected to wetsand and buff the car to make it mirror-flat.
Tonight, John and Mark scuffed the car with 1500 grit 3M wetsand paper,
tomorrow will be 2000, then the buffer brings the shine!
