DVD: Engine Detailing, Cab Corners & Headliners
A high-end restoration is all about the details, and often it’s this attention to details that sets the good cars apart from the great cars. Join us as we head to RJ Restorations where owner Bob Wilson shares some of his detailing insights for the engine compartment. Learn the tips and tricks Wilson uses, including creating stamps and decals, pant stick markings, decal placement and more.
Cab corners on pickup trucks are notorious for rusting and repairs can be difficult in this tight area also. We join Gary Simpson as he dissects the cab corner of a ’54 Ford F100 then systematically rebuilds the sheet metal to near seamless perfection. Simpson demonstrates how to properly fit patch panels, hammer weld and metal finish the welds.
Upholstery is one of those projects many of us would just rather not deal with, but with the right products and preparation even difficult tasks become possible. Join our team as we install a new headliner into our project DeSoto. With a little time and effort, you can achieve professional quality results at a fraction of the price.
Some rubber parts are simply not available, but with a little ingenuity you can create high-quality unattainable parts. Mar Simpson demonstrates how to create power window looms for a late 50s MoPar using PlastiDip and copper tubing.
Total Run Time: 80 minutes.
