1963 Buick LeSabre Wagon Repaint at V8 Speed and Resto Shop - What Are You In For?

Hold onto your surfboards and beach umbrellas, because we’re diving headfirst into a restoration project that’s sure to turn heads! We’re thrilled to announce that a stunning 1963 Buick LeSabre Station Wagon mild restomod is rolling into the V8 Speed and Resto Shop for a complete exterior refresh.

These 1960s wagons are the epitome of cool, offering spacious comfort and timeless style. But let’s be honest, even the coolest classics need some love after years on the road. This beauty is no exception, and we’re excited to bring its original shine back to life.   

Only 5,566 of these 2-seat wagons were sold new, so they were not a common sight back then. This one is equipped with factory air conditioning and tilt wheel, and has been upgraded with power disc brakes, bucket seats, console, cruise control, tinted glass and US Mags wheels. The Dynaflow transmission is fluid drive and could be considered a fore runner of today's CVT transmissions.

The plan? A meticulous repaint in its factory-fresh color will be the star of the show. But that’s not all! We’ll also be meticulously restoring the trim, ensuring every detail gleams like new. We have a few other surprises up our sleeves, but let’s just say this iconic wagon will be ready to cruise in style once again.

Stay tuned as we document this exciting journey! We’ll be sharing behind-the-scenes glimpses, restoration tips, and of course, the final reveal of this magnificent Buick LeSabre. Buckle up, gearheads, and get ready for a trip down memory lane – with a twist of modern magic!

P.S. Have a classic car that needs some TLC? We’d love to hear about it! Drop a comment below and tell us about your dream restoration project.

Celebrating 20 Years of V8TV Productions: A Journey from Passion to Global Automotive Excellence

As 2024 dawns, we at V8TV Productions are thrilled to mark our 20th anniversary—a milestone that signifies an incredible journey in the automotive world. Two decades ago, our venture began with the launch of the V8TV Television show, captivating audiences across the USA via satellite and cable systems. The response was overwhelming, with viewers reaching out to commission us to build cars for them, thus laying the foundation for the V8 Speed and Resto Shop.

Fast forward to today, and we find ourselves crafting dream cars for enthusiasts worldwide, powered by a dedicated team of 30 highly skilled technicians. Our presence isn’t just limited to our shop; we're actively engaged in automotive events across the country, immersing ourselves in the vibrant community that shares our passion.

One such recent event was our attendance at the 2023 PRI Show in Indianapolis—a hub of innovation and camaraderie. Here, we had the privilege of exploring cutting-edge products while reconnecting with cherished friends and companies who stood by us from the outset. It's a testament to enduring partnerships and shared commitment that some of the finest names in the automotive aftermarket, who collaborated with us two decades ago, continue to be integral in our journey, collaborating with us to create exceptional content and unforgettable cars for our valued clientele.

Reflecting on our evolution—from a television show to a global entity delivering automotive excellence—fills us with immense pride. This journey has been marked by unwavering dedication, tireless craftsmanship, and an unbridled passion for creating automotive marvels.

As we celebrate this milestone, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to our loyal customers, supportive partners, and our incredible team whose commitment fuels our success.

The TMI TRIM Awards at The SEMA Show 2022 set the industry on fire. With the lack of awards from a few companies that are normally at the show, TMI Products stepped up to give the recognition that these builders deserved. Builders from all over the world entered for the coveted title of Best of Show – but only one amazing ride was able to take home that trophy.

ENTER HERE:  https://www.tmiproducts.com/blog/tmi-s-trim-awards-2023

Seven other winners were awarded in their respective classes and the TMI TRIM Awards were firmly cemented into the SEMA Show history books. After the week, coverage spread like wildfire of the TRIM Awards and they were seen by over 57 million enthusiasts.

The TMI TRIM Awards pay homage to the craftsmen who hand cut, stitched, and designed all the amazing interiors at SEMA. Too often though, the paint, wheels, or engine received most all of the recognition – no longer is that the case where TMI is now honoring fellow tradesmen who have perfected their craft.

TMI Products has been hand crafting some of the finest automotive upholstery for over 40 years now.  With 40 years in the rear-view mirror, it was time to give back to the community and recognize those special builders. TMI is continuing this new tradition with the TRIM Awards for the 2023 SEMA Show.

Last years Best of Show winner wasn’t even a TMI Products interior, showing how serious TMI is about recognizing the best of the best. In fact, TMI doesn’t even choose the winners; for that, a completely independent panel of six industry veterans go over every inch of the car and then determine the winners.

The expert panel of judges include: 

- Kevin Oeste- The Voice of the SEMA Show and TRIM Awards Host, V8 Speed & Resto Shop Owner
- Sean Holman- Owner of Use For Adventure and Co-Host of The Truck Show Podcast
- Sara Morosan- Owner of LGE-CTS Motorsports, 2021 SEMA Person of the Year, Multi-time Ford Design award winner
- Theresa Contreras- owner of Baja Forged, Multi-time Ford Design award winner, PPG Brand Ambassador
- Marcel Venable- co-owner of AutoRevolution on Amazon Prime, OBS-Clash, Car Guy Confessions Podcast
- Jason Mulligan- co-owner of AutoRevolution on Amazon Prime, OBS-Clash, Car Guy Confessions Podcast

The TMI TRIM Awards are designed to not only honor the builds and the craftsmen behind it, but to celebrate them in a public fashion. Wednesday November 1st at Noon all the judges and builders will convene at the stage in the TMI Products booth. Here, the judges will go over some of the highlights and announce winners in front of the entire Central Hall at The SEMA Show 2023.

The trophies are just as unique and custom as the interiors and can easily be hoisted in the air in a show of appreciation and accomplishment during the awards ceremony. While there are a few winners, only one ride will be crowned as the Best of Show!

To be eligible for the TRIM Awards, you need to have a vehicle that’s registered and on display at the SEMA Show 2023. There are categories for TMI-equipped vehicles, and categories for non-TMI-equipped vehicles. Having a TMI-equipped vehicle though does not offer a better chance of winning, as proven by last year's Best of Show winner, that was not TMI-equipped.

TRIM Awards Categories include:

Best Car –Open to any car that features TMI seats
Best Truck –Open to any truck that features TMI seats
Best Custom SUV or Wagon –Open to any SUV or wagon, either two-door or four-door
Best Full Interior –Open to any vehicle of any type that is running a full TMI interior. A full TMI interior includes all the available components from that model line
Most Creative –Best usage of patterns, colors, and overall execution
Best Color-Matching –Best usage of patterns, colors, and stitching that matches vehicle exterior
Best Custom Car Interior (open to all Cars at the show) –Can be any vehicle with any type of custom interior
Best Custom Truck Interior (open to all Trucks at the show) –Can be any vehicle with any type of custom interior
Fan Favorite (Chosen Online) –Finalists that the TRIM Award Judges have chosen will be voted online by fans worldwide.
Best of Show Champion –Judges will vote on their favorite interior of SEMA 2023 and crown it with the TRIM Award’s highest honor

Pro Touring 1978 Trans Am: Independent Rear Suspension, Detroit Speed Subframe, Custom Exhaust, LS3

In our previous video, we showed you our 1978 Pontiac Trans Am project and talked about our plans for a high-end pro touring build. This means that we're designing the car to drive and handle really well, have great power, but also be very comfortable and serviceable anywhere in the country.

FIRST VIDEO: https://youtu.be/WrxW69RGQv8

The 1978 Pontiac Trans Am features a GM Performance Parts LS3 engine swap, along with a Detroit Speed subframe and front suspension.    The brakes are Hydratech boosted WIlwood units, and a Heidt’s independent rear suspension will make the Trans Am handle better than it ever did.   We’ve added Vintage Air, and American Autowire harness, YearOne 19” Snowflake wheels, and much more to this TA.

In this video, we're going to focus on the exhaust system. This is a critical part of any pro touring build, as it needs to be able to flow well enough to support the engine's power output, but it also needs to be quiet enough to be comfortable on long drives.

We started at the engine, using Hooker cast iron exhaust manifolds for the LS engine. These manifolds package well and flow very well, making them a great choice for our build. We ran the exhaust pipe underneath the center section of the independent rear suspension, which allows us to keep the exhaust tucked up and out of the way.

We also installed a pair of catalytic converters and a set of mufflers underneath the rear seat. The original muffler on this car was a transverse unit that went left to right over the rear axle well, but there's no more space for that with the independent rear suspension. So, we modified a set of mufflers by cutting them open, reworking the internals, and making the inlet and exhaust on the same side. This gives us a turbo-style muffler that is still able to flow well and keep the sound down.

Since our customer wanted to keep the signature split exhaust tips of the Trans Am, we needed to find a way to route the exhaust pipes to the back of the car. We did this by making a custom muffler that lives underneath the rear axle. This muffler is filled with perforated pipe and packing material, which helps to reduce noise without killing performance.

Finally, we snaked the mandrel bent tubing from the custom muffler to the back of the car. We wanted to exhaust the car all the way at the back, rather than dumping it in front of the rear wheels. This is a much cleaner way to go, and it keeps the fumes out of the car and preserves the classic look of the Trans Am.

We're really excited to hear how this exhaust system sounds! It's been a really cool project to figure out how to make all of the pieces fit together and work properly.   It is all mandrel bent 2.5” stainless tubing that is TIG welded together.   We're confident that this system will give us the performance and sound that we're looking for.

In addition to the above, here are some other things to consider when designing an exhaust system for a pro touring car:

Ground clearance: The exhaust system needs to be routed in a way that avoids any ground clearance issues. This is especially important if you plan on driving your car on rough roads or tracks.

Heat management: The exhaust system can generate a lot of heat, so it's important to make sure that it's properly insulated. This will help to protect the car's interior components from heat damage.

Aesthetics: The exhaust system is one of the most visible components on the car, so it's important to choose a system that looks good. There are many different types of exhaust tips and pipes available, so you can find a system that matches the overall style of your car.

We believe that we have achieved all of our goals with this exhaust system. It is well designed, durable, and will produce a great sound that is both aggressive and refined. We can't wait to hear what our customer thinks of it!

If you have a pro touring dream car, a custom car, or a cool hot rod that you need help with, please reach out to us at V8 Speed and Resto Shop. We have the experience and expertise to help you create a unique and amazing vehicle that you will be proud to own and drive.

We also installed a pair of catalytic converters and a set of mufflers underneath the rear seat. The original muffler on this car was a transverse unit that went left to right over the rear axle well, but there's no more space for that with the independent rear suspension. So, we modified a set of mufflers by cutting them open, reworking the internals, and making the inlet and exhaust on the same side. This gives us a turbo-style muffler that is still able to flow well and keep the sound down.

Since our customer wanted to keep the signature split exhaust tips of the Trans Am, we needed to find a way to route the exhaust pipes to the back of the car. We did this by making a custom muffler that lives underneath the rear axle. This muffler is filled with perforated pipe and packing material, which helps to reduce noise without killing performance.

Finally, we snaked the mandrel bent tubing from the custom muffler to the back of the car. We wanted to exhaust the car all the way at the back, rather than dumping it in front of the rear wheels. This is a much cleaner way to go, and it keeps the fumes out of the car and preserves the classic look of the Trans Am.

We're really excited to hear how this exhaust system sounds! It's been a really cool project to figure out how to make all of the pieces fit together and work properly. It is all mandrel bent 2.5” stainless tubing that is TIG welded together. We're confident that this system will give us the performance and sound that we're looking for.

In addition to the above, here are some other things to consider when designing an exhaust system for a pro touring car:

Ground clearance: The exhaust system needs to be routed in a way that avoids any ground clearance issues. This is especially important if you plan on driving your car on rough roads or tracks.

Heat management: The exhaust system can generate a lot of heat, so it's important to make sure that it's properly insulated. This will help to protect the car's interior components from heat damage.

Aesthetics: The exhaust system is one of the most visible components on the car, so it's important to choose a system that looks good. There are many different types of exhaust tips and pipes available, so you can find a system that matches the overall style of your car.

We believe that we have achieved all of our goals with this exhaust system. It is well designed, durable, and will produce a great sound that is both aggressive and refined. We can't wait to hear what our customer thinks of it!

If you have a pro touring dream car, a custom car, or a cool hot rod that you need help with, please reach out to us at V8 Speed and Resto Shop. We have the experience and expertise to help you create a unique and amazing vehicle that you will be proud to own and drive.

We're Hiring!  https://v8speedshop.com/online-job-application/ 
We replaced many of the body panels on this 1968 Dodge Coronet in the V8 Speed and Resto Shop.  Before the car goes to the body shop and is painted, we always check to make sure all the trim, door handles, bumpers, grille, and other items fit the car properly so there are no surprises after paint.

1968 Dodge Coronet Fitting Trim After Panel Replacement Before Paint V8 Speed and Resto Shop

Today, we're back here in the fabrication shop at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop with a really cool project we're working on. This is a 1968 Dodge Coronet 500, and it's gray, and some is bare steel, but it's kind of put together. So, what's that all about, right? Well, this car has had some extensive metal work done to it, and before it goes to the body and paint shop side, we always like to test fit all the trim – so the grills, the window trim, the mirrors, and all that stuff – while it's still in primer.

As you see, the car has been completely media blasted and sprayed with a gray epoxy primer, and certain areas are bare steel where we've been doing some welding and some panel gap fitment, and some fixing of rust in the back and things like that. But that's the point where we say, "Things look pretty good. Let's see how they fit," because the last thing you want to do is go through the metal side without test fitting the trim, send it all the way through the body shop, paint the car, and then go to put the trim on it and find out, "Oh, now it doesn't fit right." And why wouldn't it fit? Maybe it's a new handle, maybe it's a reproduction handle, maybe there's a subtle curve in a door or a quarter panel or something that just could be nicer, and you wouldn't have picked it up until you put those pieces together.

So here in the Fab shop is where we do this kind of stuff, and it's always neat to see a car mock- assembled before it gets disassembled again for paint. And this one's cool because it's a 383 car from the factory. It's 330 horsepower, 425 foot-pounds of torque, the engine's brand new, and the fresh suspension's all been redone, so everything on this car is going to be essentially brand new when it's finished. But taking this step helps make sure the final product is everything you want it to be.

If you've got a project car, some kind of restoration you want, or even a custom hot rod that you really want to fit nice, let us know. We've got a form you can fill out on our website at https://www.v8peedshop.com, and we're happy to chat with you. And who knows, maybe we'll shoot a video of your car in the state here in our Fabrication shop.

Custom 1964 Corvette Build #v8speedshop 

Full build video on this custom 1964 Chevrolet Corvette:
https://youtu.be/c6OdNjs_Td0

We've all wanted a full-size version of our favorite Hot Wheels car, and this custom 1964 Chevrolet Corvette built at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop makes that dream come true!   The restomod Corvette build features custom paint, performance suspension upgrades from Global West, new disc brakes, and a Holley Sniper EFI system install on the Edelbrock 350 crate engine.

The main part of the project was repainting the Corvette in custom colors.  The goal was to give the overall appearance of a full-size Hot Wheels car, a car that is fun to look at and drive!  Custom C2 Corvettes can be controversial, as changing a C2 Corvette from original can hurt it's collector car market value.   However, this 1964 Corvette did not have it's original engine any longer, and the exterior and interior had been changed from their original colors as well.    This allowed for some freedom of expression to build a custom Corvette with a new paint job all it's own.

This custom Corvette video features disassembling the corvette, repairing the fiberglass body, and a bit of Corvette C2 history.   The V8 Speed and Resto Shop paint department repaints the Corvette in Ermine White, then lays out the 3 color custom stripe design.    We mask off the stripes and custom paint the Corvette in our downdraft Blowtherm paint booth, and spray a final clear coat.  

The Chevrolet Corvette is truly America's Sports Car, and we feel this custom C2 corvette will excite any vintage sports car enthusiast.

PART 2:  https://youtu.be/KRxtg5Sgpck

1978 Pontiac Trans Am Pro Touring Build Preview

V8 Speed and Resto Shop is excited to share a preview of our latest project: a 1978 Pontiac Trans Am pro touring build. This car is being built from the ground up to be a high-performance, road-handling machine.

Under the hood, we're installing a 480 horsepower LS3 engine. The LS3 is a popular choice for pro touring builds because it's powerful, reliable, and relatively lightweight. We're also installing a Detroit Speed subframe to stiffen the chassis and improve handling.

In the rear, we're installing a Heights independent rear suspension system. This system offers several advantages over the stock leaf spring suspension, including improved handling, ride quality, and weight reduction.

In addition to the mechanical upgrades, we're also making some cosmetic changes to the car. We're installing Vintage Air air conditioning, American Autowire wiring, and YearOne 19-inch Snowflake wheels.

We're excited to see how this build turns out. We're confident that it will be a world-class pro touring car that is both fun to drive and beautiful to look at.

Here is a more detailed look at some of the specific components and upgrades that we're using on this build:

Engine: 480 horsepower LS3 crate engine
Transmission: Tremec T-56 six-speed manual transmission
Chassis: Detroit Speed subframe
Suspension: Heidts independent rear suspension system with coil-over shocks
Brakes: Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes
Wheels: YearOne 19-inch Snowflake wheels
Air conditioning: Vintage Air system
Wiring: American Autowire harness

We're also planning to make some additional upgrades to the car, such as:

Adding a limited-slip differential to the rear axle
Upgrading the fuel system to support the increased power output
Adding a custom exhaust system

We'll be sure to share more updates on this build as we progress. Stay tuned for future videos and blog posts!

If you have any questions about this build or are interested in discussing your own pro touring project, please contact us at V8 Speed and Resto Shop. We're here to help you create the car of your dreams.

Stripping A 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS With Dustless Media Blasting | V8 Speed and Resto Shop

We recently got our 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS back from the dustless media blaster to find what type of previous repairs, rust, and corrosion were hiding under the paint.

Getting a car back from a media blaster is exciting because you're always hoping for the best - meaning that the body or frame will need as little rust and damage repair as possible. There are many questions surrounding the media blasting process.  For example:

What is the best blasting media to use for an old car? 
What is dustless blasting? 
What is glass bead? 
What is the best blasting for classic car restoration?
Does sandblasting warp panels? 
Is dustless blasting safe? 
What can I expect when my car comes back from the media blaster? 
What is the best way to strip paint and rust from an old car? 
What is the best method to remove paint from a muscle car? 

We attempt to answer all these questions in this video where we walk around and take a close-up book at the body shell of this 1967 Camaro after dustless media blasting.

Dustless blasting involves using high-pressure water and glass bead media to remove paint from the surface of the body. It is an excellent way to remove paint from highly contoured surfaces and areas that would take far too long with a traditional sanding tool.  Here at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop, we will still manually strip the big flat panels like hoods, roof skins, decklids, door skins and quarter panels, just to minimize any risk of warpage and to have better control over the process. However, the dustless blaster will quickly strip the paint from the fire wall, floors, underside of the car, the trunk floor, door, jams, and all of the little pieces and parts, including the chassis and frame. It is a great way to go. 

We’ve restored many Camaros here at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop, and we are looking forward to doing some sheet-metal repair on this car. Plans call for work in the quarter panels, inner wheel houses, trunk floor, dashboard replacement, repairing the outer cowl panels, (or tulip panels), and many more little holes that we found throughout the body shell.   We’ll share updates as this 1967 Camaro goes through the fabrication center here at V8 Speed and Resto. 

If you have a restoration project like this Camaro, or would like a custom built Hot Rod or classic, you can reach our shop anytime at https://www.v8speedshop.com and we are happy to chat about your project.

1968 Oldsmobile 442 Dashboard Replacement at V8 Speed and Resto Shop

Dashing Through The Fabrication Shop in a 1968 Oldsmobile 442 at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop

Check out the skilled craftsmanship happening at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop! 🔥 Our talented fabrication team is hard at work welding in a brand new dashboard into a super-cool 1968 Oldsmobile 442. This 442 sits on a Roadster Shop chassis but retains its original appearance.

One of the challenges was to repair the rusty dashboard, but without the support of a reproduction panel made specifically for Oldsmobiles.    The solution - adapt a Chevelle piece, mating it to the Olds dashboard to retain the Olds speaker grille and vents while eliminating the rust.   The fresh new dashboard is a combination of Chevelle parts and custom-made pieces, replacing the rusty original.     The result is a seamless panel that looks like we were never there.  

Stay tuned for more updates on this sweet restomod project. We can't wait to unveil the finished ride!

1966 Dodge Coronet 500 Convertible Walk Around and Certicard V8 Speed and Resto Shop

We just brought in this very cool 1966 Dodge Coronet convertible. It's got a pretty neat story and a couple of very cool details we wanted to share with you. 

This video attempts to answer the following common questions:

What is a Dodge Coronet convertible?
Who restores muscle cars?
Where is a muscle car restoration shop near me? 

Our customer's parents had one of these 1966 Dodge Coronet 500 Convertibles brand new back in 1966, and a few years ago, they wanted to recapture some of those memories. So they found this car. This is not their original, but it's a basically direct replacement. And over the years, our customer has ended up with the car from her parents and they want to get it back on the road and dialed in so that they can enjoy it. And they have younger children who are both interested in driving this car as well. So it's truly a legacy / family heirloom type of vehicle. It's got 383 under the hood with an automatic transmission with a bucket seat interior. But one of the coolest details is found under the hood right behind the driver's side headlight.

A lot of these 1966 and 1967 Dodge, Chrysler, and Plymouth cars had a little thing found in a slot called a Certicard. A Certicard is a thing that the dealer used to keep track of the car for warranty purposes. It's got the VIN. It also has the build date of the car, which in this case was May 17th of 1966, and the delivery date when it was first sold of October of 1966.

But it also has the original owners name and the dealership where it was sold. There's also color codes on this so that we know that this car was originally a saddle tan with a with a tan interior. So it's been repainted and there are some non-original elements on the car. The 383 is now fueled by a FAST EZ EFI system, and it's got an upgraded MSD ignition and an aluminum radiator.

Inside, they added some aftermarket bucket seats and a few things. When you find a Certicard, it's it's pretty unusual, especially if the Certicard VIN matches the VIN of the actual car, which in our case it does. So if you ever find one of these things laying around, you might want to reach out to some Mopar groups or put it up on eBay, because if you find one that's got a VIN and somebody has the car, they're going to want to keep this with it anyway.

Just kind of a neat little detail we found here at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop and this cool 1966 Dodge Coronet 500 convertible.

And over the years, our customer has ended up with the car from her parents and they want to get it back on the road and dialed in so that they can enjoy it. And they have younger children who are both interested in driving this car as well. So it's truly a legacy / family heirloom type of vehicle. It's got 383 under the hood with an automatic transmission with a bucket seat interior. But one of the coolest details is found under the hood right behind the driver's side headlight.

A lot of these 1966 and 1967 Dodge, Chrysler, and Plymouth cars had a little thing found in a slot called a Certicard. A Certicard is a thing that the dealer used to keep track of the car for warranty purposes. It's got the VIN. It also has the build date of the car, which in this case was May 17th of 1966, and the delivery date when it was first sold of October of 1966.

But it also has the original owners name and the dealership where it was sold. There's also color codes on this so that we know that this car was originally a saddle tan with a with a tan interior. So it's been repainted and there are some non-original elements on the car. The 383 is now fueled by a FAST EZ EFI system, and it's got an upgraded MSD ignition and an aluminum radiator.

Inside, they added some aftermarket bucket seats and a few things. When you find a Certicard, it's it's pretty unusual, especially if the Certicard VIN matches the VIN of the actual car, which in our case it does. So if you ever find one of these things laying around, you might want to reach out to some Mopar groups or put it up on eBay, because if you find one that's got a VIN and somebody has the car, they're going to want to keep this with it anyway.

Just kind of a neat little detail we found here at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop and this cool 1966 Dodge Coronet 500 convertible.
