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.

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!

 

Polishing parts can be very rewarding if you know how to do it and have the right gear. We picked up an Eastwood buffing motor, stand, and polishing kit to be able to do this kind of work in-house. We learned that there are a variety of different kinds of buffing and polishing wheels, and the various compounds can only be used with one wheel. Here's some tricks to help your polishing projects go smoothly.
