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!

We perform lots of metal repairs on Muscle Cars, and today, fabricator Adam Schulte gives us a tour of a '67 Camaro RS he is working on in the shop. Tasks included installing Detroit Speed Mini Tubs, Classic Industries quarter panels and roof skin, and other sheet metal repairs.   Contact the shop today to discuss your restoration project!

 

The Spitznagel Maxi is a 220 volt single phase dent pulling station that has the ability to shrink, pull dents and creases. This is the ideal replacement for drilling holes in panels and using a slide hammer. A must have for body work.

 

 

3M recently released a new form of sprayable undercoating along with a new gun that allows you to change the texture of the sprayout.   We tested both and report our findings.   The result is a very durable coating that is easy to clean.   Learn more at http://www.3MCollision.com.

1967 Camaro Body and Paint Restoration

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 4:1 sprayable polyester primer / surfacer. The final stages include spraying the custom three tone paint job, polishing and buffing. This is a 2 part video series, part two after the break!

Check out the photos of this process here!

 

 

 

 

 

Body Filler can either be your best friend or worst enemy when restoring your Muscle Car, but how is this mysterious substance both good and bad at the same time? And what is this stuff, anyway? In this 3-part V8TV video series, we take a look at what body filler is, how it should be used, and why it has such a good and bad reputation at the same time. We show the differences between traditional body filler and new technology fillers like Evercoat Quantum1 and the proper mix ratios and techniques of each as we work on our 1967 Camaro.   Restoration and custom paint is different from regular auto body repair, and so are the techniques.   Weather you perform stock or custom auto bodywork, this series should help you out.
