(ANNOUNCER)>> TODAY ON DETROIT MUSCLE PROJECT ULTRA VIOLET IS READY FOR A FULLY CUSTOM FUEL SYSTEM

INSTALLATION, AS WELL AS A SHINY FRONT ASSEMBLY AND COOLING SETUP. WE'LL TAKE A LOOK AT ANOTHER LESS APPRECIATED MOPAR GEARED MORE TOWARDS DISTINGUISHED TASTES.

AND HOW TO PAINT IN CUSTOM LOGOS FOR THAT EXTRA TOUCH.

(JOE)>> HOW DO YOU FEED A HUNGRY HEMI? THAT'S THE QUESTION WE ANSWER TODAY FOR OUR '70 CHALLENGER, AND WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW TO INSTALL A HIGH

END FUEL SYSTEM ON YOUR STREET MACHINE. FROM THE GET GO WE DECIDED THERE WAS ONLY ONE WAY TO PUSH OUR DODGE DOWN THE ROAD, WITH HEMI POWER.

OF COURSE OUR ALL ALUMINUM POWER PLANT NEEDS SOME JUICE TO FIRE THOSE 556 PONIES.

(TOMMY)>> WE'RE RUNNING A DUAL THROTTLE BODY SETUP ON THIS ENGINE. SO WE'VE DECIDED TO EMPLOY A DYNAMIC FUEL SYSTEM. NOW THAT'S JUST A FANCY NAME FOR A SYSTEM WITH A BYPASS REGULATOR AND A RETURN FEED. TRADITIONALLY MUSCLE CARS HAD WHAT'S KNOWN AS A DEAD HEAD SYSTEM, WHICH MEANS THAT A MECHANICAL FUEL PUMP PULLED THE FUEL FROM THE TANK, WHICH FED THE CARBURETOR WITH SEVEN TO 10 POUNDS OF PRESSURE. THE PROBLEM WITH THIS SETUP IS THAT THE ORIGINAL STYLE MECHANICAL PUMP WILL NEVER PRODUCE THE PRESSURE REQUIRED FOR A FUEL INJECTION SYSTEM.

(JOE)>> ON OUR CHALLENGER WE NEED A GOOD 60 PSI AT

ALL TIMES TO FEED THAT DUAL INJECTOR SETUP. SO WE'RE SWITCHING TO AN INTANK ELECTRIC PUMP, WHICH FEEDS THE TWO FUEL RAILS THAT SUPPLY THE THROTTLE BODIES. IN ADDITION EMPLOYING A RETURN FEED BACK TO THE

TANK KEEPS THE PUMP FROM BEING UNDER HIGH CONSTANT

RATE OF PRESSURE. IN ADDITION TO KEEPING THE FUEL COOL, IT HELPS EXTEND THE LIFE OF THE PUMP.

HERE'S A COOL WAY TO KEEP YOUR STOCK APPEARANCE WHILE STILL MEETING THE NEEDS OF MODERNIZED POWER PLANTS. IT'S FROM THE RESTO MOD LINE AT RICK'S TANK, AND WELL HERE'S RICK HIMSELF TO TELL US WHY IT'S A GOOD ONE.

(RICK)>> THIS TANK IS A DIRECT FIT APPLICATION BASED OFF OF STOCK DIMENSIONS WITH A COUPLE OF ADDED IN FEATURES. ONE OF THEM BEING THE NOTCHED FRONT CORNERS FOR EXTRA EXHAUST CLEARANCE FOR WHEN YOU'RE RUNNING THE BIGGER EXHAUST TUBE DIAMETERS. AND THE OTHER ONE IS THE ABILITY TO INCORPORATE AN INTANK FUEL PUMP.

(JOE)>> WELL LIKE THIS ONE YOU BROUGHT IN?

(RICK)>> THIS IS OUR NEW BILLET INTANK PUMP MODULE. IT'S GOT AN INTEGRATED BAFFLE RESERVOIR. IT HAS A RETURN LINE PROVISION, WHICH ALWAYS KEEPS THE BAFFLE RESERVOIR FULL, A MAIN PUMP PROVISION, AND ALSO A PORT FOR AN AUXILIARY PUMP SHOULD YOU DECIDE TO FUEL HIGH HORSEPOWER APPLICATIONS OR JUST SIMPLY HAVE

A REDUNDANT PUMP.

(JOE)>> WELL A LOT OF GUYS, RICK, ARE RUNNING A NEWER STYLE CRATE ENGINE, LIKE THE LS THREE, THAT DOESN'T REQUIRE A RETURN LINE.

(RICK)>> YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT JOE. IN FACT THIS SETUP RIGHT HERE IS AN OE STYLE MODULE, WHICH IS SETUP FOR A SINGLE LINE FEED, COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS A DEAD HEAD SYSTEM. THIS MODULE RIGHT HERE IS INTERNALLY REGULATED. WE HAVE VARIOUS REGULATORS FOR VARIOUS PRESSURES. THIS PARTICULAR REGULATOR IS A CONSTANT 58 PSI. ONE COOL THING ABOUT THIS PUMP RIGHT HERE JOE IS THE ABILITY TO ADAPT THESE CORNER PICK UPS. HOLD THOSE FOR ME, WILL YOU?

YOU SIMPLY CONNECT IT WITH A PUSH LOCK FITTING AS SUCH. THEN WHAT YOU DO IS YOU TAKE THESE CORNER PICK UPS AND YOU INSERT THEM TO THE LEFT AND RIGHT CORNER

PICK UP BRACKETS. SO WITH THE PICK UPS INSTALLED, YOU SIMPLY PLACE THE MODULE DOWN IN.

ONE OF THE ADVANTAGES OF THE FUEL PICK UPS IN THE CORNER IS THE ZERO STARVE SITUATION. THEY ACTUALLY OPEN AND CLOSE DEPENDING ON THE PRESENTS OF FUEL, WHICH IS REALLY GREAT ON THE AUTOCROSS COURSE.

(JOE)>> GOOD POINT.

(TOMMY)>> RICK'S TANKS HAS BEEN WORKING ON THEIR RESTO MOD LINE FOR APPLICATIONS OF THE MOST POPULAR OF THE BIG THREE. THE PROBLEM IS THIS BIG OLE SWAY BAR HERE. IT'S NOT IN THE SAME LOCATION AS IN STOCK FORM. SO WE HAD TO COME UP WITH A DIFFERENT SOLUTION.

(JOE)>> WELL HERE'S OUR VERY SHINY SOLUTION, AND RICK I KNOW YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN HAND MAKING CUSTOM TANKS LIKE THIS SINCE DAY ONE.

WHAT WAS YOUR APPROACH TO THIS DEAL?

(RICK)>> BASICALLY WORKING WITH TOMMY. IN CONJUNCTION WITH TOMMY WE DESIGNED A TANK THAT WAS OFF OF STOCK DIMENSIONS, FRONT TO BACK, SIDE TO SIDE, AND EVEN THE DEPTH. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT WE SWEPT THE FRONT CORNER BACK ABOUT SIX AND A HALF INCHES TO CLEAR THE SWAY BAR TUBE. THIS TANK HAS TWO BAFFLES THAT GO FRONT TO BACK AND TWO THAT GO SIDE TO SIDE. WHAT HAPPENS IS YOU HAVE A FUEL PUMP RESERVOIR. IN A DYNAMIC SYSTEM, WHEN YOU'RE RETURNING FUEL BACK, YOU KEEP A COLUMN HEIGHT OF FUEL HIGHER THAN THE REST OF THE LEVEL OF THE TANK WHEN THE LEVEL GETS LOW.

(JOE)>> THIS BY THE WAY IS THE SAME FUEL PUMP WE SAW EARLIER MINUS THE BAFFLE CAN, WHICH YOU DON'T NEED WITH THE INTERNAL BAFFLING, RIGHT?

(RICK)>> THAT'S CORRECT JOE. YOU'LL ALSO NOTICE THAT THERE'S A PROVISION HERE

FOR A SECOND FUEL PUMP SHOULD YOU NEED TO SUPPORT A HIGH HORSEPOWER LEVEL ABOVE 900.

(JOE)>> I THINK TOMMY'S TRYING TO

TELL US SOMETHING. WE BETTER GET THIS THING UNDER THE CAR.

(RICK)>> SOUNDS GOOD!

(TOMMY)>> THE FUEL PUMP INSTALL STARTS

WITH A RUBBER ORING. THEN YOU DROP THE PUMP IN PLACE AND INSTALL THE RETAINER RING, WHICH NEEDS TO BE TIGHTENED CLOCKWISE. WE CAN ALSO TIE IN THE OUTPUT LINE AS WELL AS THE RETURN FEED WITH SOME NUMBER SIX AN FITTINGS FROM EARLS.

(JOE)>> A TRANSMISSION JACK MAKES PLACING THE TANK A SNAP. THEN THE TWO RETAINER STRAPS THAT CAME WITH THE TANK CAN BE BOLTED IN USING THE FACTORY LOCATIONS.

THAT SHINY TANK LOOKS ABSOLUTELY GREAT UNDER THE OLD DODGE, BUT THERE'S MORE TO BE DONE INCLUDING PLUMBING THE LINES UP TO THE ENGINE.

(TOMMY)>> MORE AN FITTINGS SCREW INTO OUR HOSE ENDS. WE'LL USE SOME EARL'S ASSEMBLY LUBE TO EASE THE INSTALLATION AS WELL AS PREVENTING THE MARRING OF THOSE ALUMINUM THREADS. THEN THE FEED LINE FROM THE PUMP IS ATTACHED TO THE FUEL RAIL FOR THE INJECTORS.

(JOE)>> DOWN STREAM FROM THE RAIL OUR REGULATOR, WHICH IS ATTACHED TO THE FRAME RAIL, GETS TIED INTO THE SYSTEM.

(TOMMY)>> WELL MAN IT LOOKS LIKE YOU FINISHED UP OUR FUEL SYSTEM FOR US.

(RICK)>> YEAH, ALL YOU'VE GOT TO DO IS PUT SOME GAS IN IT.

(TOMMY)>> WELL WE'VE GOT A LITTLE BIT MORE THAT WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO DO BEFORE THAT HEMI MAKES SOME NOISE.

(RICK)>> WELL I'LL LET YOU GET AFTER IT.

(ANNOUNCER)>> AFTER THE BREAK WE'VE GOT SOME MORE PRETTY STUFF TO PLUG INTO OUR PURPLE HEMI POWERED CHALLENGER, INCLUDING THE PULLEY SETUP AND COOLING SYSTEM. THEN IT'S A CLASSIC DODGE BBODY WITH GOOD LOOKS AND GREAT POWER, AS WELL AS CUSTOM LETTERING WITH A REPAIR TOOL.

(TOMMY)>> WE'VE GOT OUR FUEL SYSTEM BUTTONED UP ON OUR HEMI AND WE'RE READY TO MOVE ON TO WHAT KEEPS THIS THING COOL AND WHAT DRIVES THE ACCESSORIES. NOW ORIGINALLY THIS THING WOULD HAVE CAME WITH A VBELT SETUP BUT THESE THINGS REQUIRE SOME MAINTENANCE AND THEY'RE VERY PRONE TO BEING THROWN OFF BECAUSE THEY DON'T RUN THE TENSIONER THAT THE LATER MODEL SERPENTINE BELTS HAVE.

(JOE)>> WE'RE GONNA GIVE OUR CHALLENGER SOME 21ST CENTURY ACCESSORY DRIVE SCIENCE WITH THIS SETUP WE GOT FROM SUMMIT RACING.

IT NOT ONLY LOOKS FANTASTIC, IT'S DESIGNED TO BE EFFICIENT AS WELL. HERE'S SOME OF WHAT IT INCLUDES, A REVERSE ROTATION WATER PUMP FROM EDELBROCK, 105 AMP ONE WIRE ALTERNATOR, AND A POWER STEERING PUMP. IT COMES WITH ARP HARDWARE AND GET THIS, ALL THE BRACKETRY AND PULLEYS ARE POLISHED

BILLET ALUMINUM. FINALLY TO SPIN THOSE COMPONENTS A SIX RIBBED

SERPENTINE BELT.

(TOMMY)>> FIRST UP IS TO INSTALL AND CORRECTLY POSITION THE WATER PUMP STUDS. WE'LL DAB THEM WITH SOME LOCTITE SILICONE SEALANT AS INSURANCE AGAINST ANY WATER SEEPING PAST THE THREADS. THEN WE NEED TO SEE HOW MUCH EACH STUD STICKS OUT

PAST THE PUMP AND ADJUST THEM ACCORDINGLY, PERFECT.

(JOE)>> THEN WE CAN PLACE THE GASKETS FOR THE PUMP AND SLIDE IT ON FOR GOOD. SINCE WE'RE BOLTING STEEL BOLTS INTO AN ALUMINUM BLOCK, SOME ANTISEIZE IS A GOOD IDEA TO PREVENT ANY GALLING. THE KIT COMES WITH A FEW OF THESE THREADED SPACERS THAT POSITION THE BRACKETS. THE FIRST ONE GOES IN PLACE AS THE GUTS OF THE WATER PUMP ARE ALSO INSTALLED. BE SURE THAT YOU GO OVER AND TIGHTEN ALL OF YOUR FASTENERS TO SPEC.

(TOMMY)>> THIS IS THE SUPPORT BRACKET FOR YOUR TENSIONER, AND IT GETS INSTALLED NEXT WITH ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE THREADED SPACERS AND A BOLT. THEN OUR POWER STEERING BRACKET CAN GO INTO PLACE, WITH ANOTHER BOLT UP TOP AS WELL AS ONE

OF THOSE SPACERS. WELL MISTER JOE, YOU'RE DOING ONE FINE JOB, BUT IF YOU DON'T MIND I'D LIKE TO DO THE HONORS OF BOLTING

ON THIS GINORMOUS SHINY PIECE.

(JOE)>> OKAY!

(TOMMY)>> YOU DON'T MIND?

(JOE)>> NO, LET'S SEE HOW MANY FINGERPRINTS YOU CAN GET ON IT.

(TOMMY)>> I'LL BET I CAN GET MORE THAN ONE.

(JOE)>> THERE'S A MYRIAD OF BOLTS THAT HOLD THIS MAIN BRACKET ON. INSTALL THEM LOOSELY FOR NOW TO ALLOW WIGGLE ROOM FOR INSTALLING THE ALTERNATOR. LEAVING THEM A LITTLE LOOSE ALSO HELPS YOU GET

THE POWER STEERING PUMP INSTALLED.

NOW THE TENSIONER ITSELF CAN GO TO ITS HOME ON THE BRACKET THAT WE INSTALLED, AS WELL AS THE TENSIONER PULLEY.

(TOMMY)>> WITH THE MAIN BRACKET BOLTS NOW TIGHTENED DOWN WE CAN INSTALL THE REST OF THE PULLEYS, INCLUDING THE ONE THAT BOLTS UP FRONT TO OUR BALANCER. THE LAST BIG SHINY PIECE, THE WATER PUMP PULLEY.

NOW FOR OUR SERPENTINE BELT.

YOU KNOW HOW THIS GOES. LOOP IT LIKE THE DIAGRAM IN THE KIT SHOWS, USE THE TENSIONER TO SEAT, THERE YOU GO.

(JOE)>> WELL WITH THAT SHINY SERPENTINE SYSTEM IN PLACE, WE CAN MOVE FORWARD IN THE ENGINE BAY TO HANDLE OUR COOLING NEEDS FOR THE HEMI. SUMMIT RACING SENT US THIS DIRECT FIT ALUMINUM RADIATOR THAT COMES WITH ALL THE MOUNTING BRACKETS WE'RE GONNA NEED, PLUS A PAIR OF 13 INCH PULLER FANS, A COUPLE OF WIRING HARNESSES WITH 40 AMP RELAYS. WHAT YOU'VE GOT TO DO IS LOOSELY INSTALL THESE BRACKETS ONTO THE FAN. NOW I SAY LOOSELY BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO LEAVE ROOM FOR THEM TO BE DRAPED OVER THE RADIATOR. THEY HAVE A LOT OF ADJUSTABILITY, JUST GET

YOUR FANS PLACED HOW YOU WANT THEM AND CINCH EVERYTHING DOWN. WITH THAT IT'S READY TO BE MOUNTED IN THE CAR ALMOST.

(TOMMY)>> NOW ORIGINALLY OUR CAR WOULD HAVE CAME WITH A DOWN FLOW STYLE RADIATOR, BUT THIS UPGRADED UNIT HAS THE CROSS FLOW.

AND WITH THAT BEING SAID, THEY CHANGED UP THE MOUNTING LOCATIONS ON THE RADIATOR. THIS THING IS ACTUALLY SUPPOSED TO SIT ON TOP OF THE FRAME RAIL. AND US HAVING THAT AFTERMARKET CHASSIS, WE HAD TO BACK UP AND REPUNT JUST A LITTLE.

(JOE)>> WHY DON'T YOU SHOW THEM WHAT YOU DID?

(TOMMY)>> THE NEW RADIATOR WAS DESIGNED TO MOUNT IN THIS AREA AT A 90 DEGREE ANGLE BUT OUR NEW FRAME ONE, WELL IT'S MORE CLOSER TO A 45. SO OUR SOLUTION WAS TO TAKE ONE OF THESE URETHANE BUSHINGS, KINDA CUT IT UP A BIT, AND THEN SIMPLY SLIDE ALL THIS STUFF BACK TOGETHER GETTING

US BACK TO 90 DEGREES.

AND THAT ALSO GAVE US AN ISOLATOR TO MOUNT THE RADIATOR ON.

IT'S A SIMPLY MATTER OF SLIPPING THE RADIATOR DOWN INTO PLACE AND BOLTING IT TO THOSE PEDESTALS WE JUST SHOWED YOU. WITH THAT DONE WE'LL USE THESE BRACKETS PROVIDED IN THE KIT TO FASTEN DOWN THE TOP OF THE RADIATOR AND KEEP EVERYTHING WHERE IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE.

(ANNOUNCER)>> STILL AHEAD IT'S THE FANCIER BROTHER

TO THE SUPER BEE AND COUSIN TO THE ROAD RUNNER. WE'LL TAKE A RIDE IN A MOPAR BIG BODY THAT PUT UP THE POWER AND PULLED DOWN THE NUMBERS.

(TOMMY)>> YOU KNOW THE MOPAR BBODY PLATFORM BACK IN THE LATE '60'S AND EARLY '70'S HAD A VAST ARRAY OF DIFFERENT MUSCLE CARS. YOU HAD THE SATELLITE, THE ROAD RUNNER, THE GTX, AND EVEN THE ICONS LIKE THE CHARGER, SUPERBIRD, AND DAYTONA. BUT THERE WAS ONE BBODY THAT SOMETIMES FELL THROUGH THE CRACKS EVEN THOUGH IT COULD RUN WITH THE BIG DOGS.

(JOE)>> IN 1969 THE MOPAR BUZZ WAS ALL ABOUT CARS LIKE THE CHARGER. ALMOST LOST IN THE SHUFFLE WAS THE SO CALLED GENTLEMEN'S MOPAR MUSCLE CAR, THE DODGE CORONET R/T. (JOE EHRHART)>> YOU SEE A LOT OF R/T CHARGERS BUT NOT THE CORONET. IT'S JUST A VERY UNUSUAL CAR.

(JOE)>> R/T MEANS ROAD AND TRACK OF COURSE. IT SYMBOLIZED THE DOUBLE DUTY MUSCLE MACHINES OF THE ERA. (JOE EHRHART)>> WELL WHAT CAUGHT MY EYE ABOUT THE CAR WAS THAT IN FACT THE COLOR, BEING A BFIVE BLUE CAR, AND A CORONET R/T TRACK PAK. YOU DON'T SEE A WHOLE LOT OF THOSE ON THE ROAD.

(TOMMY)>> THE TRACK PAK OPTION INCLUDED A FOUR SPEED HURST SHIFTER, HEAVY DUTY COOLING SYSTEM, AND A SET OF 3.54 GEARS HUNG IN A DANA AXLE WITH A SURE GRIP DIFF. YOU ALSO GOT A HEMI SUSPENSION AND BRAKES.

(JOE)>> THIS ONE DOESN'T HAVE A HEMI ENGINE, BUT IT DOES HAVE A PRETTY FIERCE 440 MAGNUM RATED AT 375 HORSES. ONE THAT PROPELS THIS R/T FROM ZERO TO 60 IN UNDER SEVEN SECONDS.

(TOMMY)>> SOME HOOD SCOOPS ARE FOR LOOKS. THIS PAIR OF SCOOPS IS MADE TO FEED THE RAM CHARGER FRESH AIR INDUCTION SYSTEM, MANUALLY OF COURSE. (JOE EHRHART)>> THE CAR HANDLES GREAT! IT DOESN'T PERFORM AS WELL ON THE CURVES AS IT DOES ON THE STRAIGHT AWAYS BECAUSE OF ITS SIZE AND THE BODY TYPE. BUT IT LOVES THE STRAIGHT AWAYS.

(TOMMY)>> SPEAKING OF THAT, 440 POWERED CORONET R/T'S WERE KNOWN TO RUN THE QUARTER MILE IN THE LOW 14'S. THAT'S EVEN QUICKER THAN THEIR SUB MODEL HEMI POWERED SUPER BEE COUSINS. (JOE EHRHART)>> I THINK THEY MADE SOMETHING AROUND 1,450 R/T FOUR SPEEDS IN '69. SO BY THE TIME YOU BREAK IT DOWN TO THE COLOR, THE OPTIONS ON IT, THE R/T STRIPES, THE OPTIONS ON THAT PARTICULAR CAR, IT'S A PRETTY RARE CAR. YOU GO TO CRUISE INS OR THESE CAR SHOWS OR SOMETHING, YOU NEVER SEE THEM. YOU SEE SUPER BEES AND YOU SEE ROAD RUNNERS. YOU DON'T SEE A LOT OF R/T CORONET. AND WHEN I WAS A KID, YOU KNOW, YOU JUST WEREN'T ALLOWED TO HAVE THOSE CARS.

ALL THE KIDS IN THE NEIGHBORHOODS HAD THEM OR THEIR FATHERS HAD THEM. YOU ALWAYS WANTED ONE, AND THEN KINDA LIFE GETS YOU.

AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN WHEN YOU'RE MID-40'S OR SOMETHING YOU DECIDE FINALLY YOUR GONNA GET WHAT YOU'VE ALWAYS WANTED.

(JOE)>> MAYBE IT WAS COMPETITION FROM OTHER MOPARS, BUT SALES WERE SAGGING IN THE LATE '60'S AND THE CORONET R/T BRAND WAS HISTORY AFTER 1970.

(TOMMY)>> AT $3,400 DOLLARS, THE PRICE TAG WAS HEFTY FOR THE TIME, EVEN THOUGH A BEAUTY LIKE THIS TODAY IS WORTH OVER 10 TIMES THAT AMOUNT.

(JOE)>> AND THE COST OF OWNING A PIECE OF MOPAR MUSCLE CAR HISTORY LIKE THIS, WELL PRICELESS. [ tires screeching ] [ engine revving ]

(ANNOUNCER)>> STILL AHEAD WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW TO ADAPT A REPAIR TOOL TO CREATE CUSTOM TOUCHES ON YOUR RIDE.

(TOMMY)>> THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL ONE GIVES TO A

VEHICLE, WELL IT CAN DETERMINE HOW NICE IT IS. SO WE'RE ALWAYS TRYING TO GO ABOVE AND BEYOND WITH THE STUFF THAT WE BUILD.

KINDA LIKE OUR PURPLE MOPAR FOR EXAMPLE. WELL WHENEVER WE GOT OUR CHASSIS FROM SCHWARTZ PERFORMANCE, IT CAME WITH THE RED BRAKE CALIPERS ON IT.

BUT THAT RED COLOR DOESN'T REALLY GO WITH ANYTHING ON THIS OLE CAR. SO WE WENT THE NEXT STEP FURTHER. WHAT WE DID WAS SPRAY ON SOME OF THAT CAROLINA VIOLET THAT WE PUT ON THE BODY. THAT PURPLE PAINT TURNED OUT GREAT BUT WE WANTED TO CARRY OUR DETAIL EVEN FURTHER. IF YOU NOTICE ON THE BRAKE CALIPER THERE'S AN ENGRAVING OF SCHWARTZ PERFORMANCE, AND WE THOUGHT IF WE PAINTED THAT SILVER MAN THAT'D BE GREAT LOOKING. SO YOU COULD DO THIS WITH SOME TAPE AND A RAZOR BLADE, BUT THAT'S A WHOLE LOT OF TIME. OR YOU COULD EVEN DO A PAINT BRUSH, BUT MY BIG FAT FINGERS DON'T REALLY WORK THAT WELL. THERE IS ANOTHER OPTION THOUGH. WHAT WE'RE GONNA USE TO GET US THERE IS THIS DUPLICOLOR SCRATCH FIX ALL IN ONE. NOW OBVIOUSLY THIS THING'S FOR FIXING NICKS, AND SCRATCHES, AND THAT KIND OF THING, BUT IT'S GONNA

WORK GREAT FOR OUR APPLICATION. THIS WHITE TIP IS ACTUALLY AN ABRASIVE PREP TIP. YOU USE IT TO ROUGHEN UP THE SURFACE THAT YOU'RE GONNA BE PAINTING, WHICH ALLOWS THE PAINT TO GET GOOD ADHESION TO THE SURFACE. THEN WE'LL GO OVER IT WITH SOME WAX AND GREASE

REMOVER TO MAKE SURE WE'RE WORKING WITH A CLEAN CANVAS.

NOW WITH IT SANDED WE'RE READY TO START PAINTING, AND WE'RE GONNA USE THIS LITTLE PART OF THE TIP

THAT'S A LOT LIKE A FOUNTAIN PIN.

(JOE)>> THE PAINT COMES OUT AS SOON AS YOU APPLY PRESSURE TO TIP. THE HARDER YOU PUSH, THE FASTER IT FLOWS OUT. GO NICE AND SLOW AND REMEMBER HOW YOUR KINDERGARTEN TEACHER TOLD YOU TO COLOR INSIDE THE LINES.

(TOMMY)>> WELL THAT'S ALL IT IS TO IT AND IT ONLY TOOK ABOUT FIVE MINUTES. NOW ON THE OTHER END OF THIS PIN THEY DO HAVE SOME CLEAR COAT JUST IN CASE YOU WANTED TO TOP COAT IT. BUT FOR THE EFFECT THAT WE'RE GOING FOR, DON'T REALLY NEED IT. SO NOW ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS LET THAT THING DRY.

(JOE)>> SAY, IF YOU'VE GOT A 2013 OR 2014 CAMARO AND YOU'VE BEEN PONDERING A PERFORMANCE UPGRADE IN THE STOCK STEREO SYSTEM, YOU MIGHT GET A KICK OUT OF THIS. THE KICKER POWER STAGE SERIES IS AN ALL IN ONE MULTI CHANNEL AMPLIFIER AND POWERED SUB WOOFER UPGRADE THAT'S SPECIALLY DESIGNED TO ACT AS A DIRECT REPLACEMENT FOR STOCK STEREO COMPONENTS WITH NO MODIFICATIONS. NOW THIS DESIGN ALLOWS FOR A BIG BASS SUB WOOFER TO FIT IN A RELATIVELY SMALL SPACE. OH YOU DON'T HAVE A CAMARO? WELL KICKER'S GOT A LINE OF DROP IN SOLUTIONS FOR OTHER MAKES AND MODELS.

(TOMMY)>> GOING FROM LATE MODEL TO FIRST GEN CAMARO, WHEN YOU'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A RESTORATION, YOU'RE PROBABLY GONNA FIND YOURSELF NEEDING SOME QUALITY REPLACEMENT PARTS. CLASSIC PARTS OF AMERICA HAS YOU COVERED. THIS IS A SET OF TAIL LAMP BEZELS FOR A '67 CAMARO, AND THEY'RE OFFICIALLY LICENSED GM RESTORATION PARTS. SO YOU KNOW YOU'RE GETTING A QUALITY PIECE. THEY'RE ALSO AVAILABLE IN BILLET WITH MACHINED OR POLISHED FINISH. SO IF YOU'RE IN THE MARKET FOR SOME QUALITY FIRST GEN CAMARO RESTORATION PARTS, CHECK THEM OUT AT CLASSIC PARTS DOT COM.

(JOE)>> WELL FINALLY YOU KNOW WE USE MATCO TOOLS AROUND HERE TO DO DIFFERENT KINDS OF JOBS AND THEY NEVER FAIL US. WELL NOW YOU CAN EXPECT THE SAME LEVEL OF QUALITY FROM THIS MATCO MINI VOLT POWER BANK. THEY'RE AVAILABLE FROM 2,600 MILLIAMPERES

UP TO 12,000.

OF COURSE YOU CAN CARRY THEM WITH YOU ANYWHERE TO MAKE SURE YOUR ELECTRONICS NEVER RUN OUT OF POWER.

AND EACH ONE COMES WITH A CHARGING CORD. NOW JUST THINK HOW HANDY ONE OF THESE COULD COME IN WHEN YOU'RE OUT CRUISING IN YOUR HOT ROD OR EVEN IN YOUR DAILY DRIVER. WELL WE'RE GONNA POWER ON OUT OF HERE. TIME TO GO, WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME.
