I have started a video blog if you will regarding my 67 4 door Hardtop. Metal work is done, because most reproduction parts are probably made for 65-70 instead of 67 specifically....we had some issues , luckily I have a fabricator that can make quarter panels... sweet! Subscribe and like! I will try to go over 67 specific stuff along with my LS swap LS specific stuff. Its coming together. Another video most likely this weekend!

I watched your videos --> Awesome!!
If your car had a 3-speed automatic in it originally, it was a TH400. The first year for the TH350 was 1969.

"If your car had a 3-speed automatic in it originally, it was a TH400..."

To answer whether or not it was originally a TH400 he could take a look at the welded frame bracket for the transmission cross member. The power glide and the TH400 require two different positions. GM added a second welded bracket per side for TH400 cars. At least that's the case for '68 (front position is not used with the TH400 but GM kept the PG bracket on all cars). The front position for the Power Glide is also where the bracket needs to be for the TH350.

So at least for '68 any car which came with a TH400 would have 2 welded brackets per side. Anything which came with the PG had only one per side. I never verified what they did for manual transmission options.

All of the manual transmissions (3 speed, 4 speed and OD) use the same mounting position as the PG.

Ray

Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.

Well that video hit home for me. I still have a wire, from wire wheeling a frame while under a car, in the knuckle of my right hand. It's been there since around 2002. I was wearing a mask, a hat, long sleeves, safety glasses and nitrile gloves while using a cordless drill. The wire went through the glove. I never even realized it when it happened but later my hand was itching. I could barely see a spot if I pinched it with the other hand but I couldn't remove it myself. The next day I couldn't even see it but it was visible in the x-ray. A hand specialist tried to remove it but it was so close to things and has a slight spiral so he was nervous and finally decided to close it up without removing it.

I should have been using leather gloves but in any case I now use the 3M style sandpaper flapper wheels which have something like the scotch brite material layered between. The heads are expensive but I've had a wire in my knee from a wire wheel, the one still in my hand and a friend even had one which was just above his eye. My apologies for the long explanation but I would recommend re-thinking the wire wheel use.

That was also a good comment you had regarding getting the top of the frame later. On the car I was doing I used a wire bristled brush by hand. I then used an old tooth brush to paint the top portion. Your solution is better but if removing the body isn't in the plan the tooth brush technique worked pretty well. Despite having success with POR I've recently switched to Rust Bullet. They seemed to publish more test type information and their products are UV resistant. For the sticking lid on POR or Rust Bullet a piece of clear plastic wrap under the cap works quite well. I also use a plastic coffee or lemonade mix scoop to ladle the paint into a small plastic container. Scooping it out drastically reduces the amount which gets in the ring of the can. When POR dries it won't stick well at all to plastic cups so you can let it dry and occasionally I've removed a perfect form, of the cup which I was using, out made of paint.

I havent heard anything bad about your stuff, and if I had not done my own research, i would see your point. I guess I have worked with it so long, I haven't looked for others...
As far as the bastardly wires....I have felt the pain... but I did notice...if I bought more expensive wire wheels or cupped suckers for my drill, I didn't see as much flying wires as I did with ones I have bought from Harbor Freight. Those fly apart a lot quicker .. I am enjoying making these videos for several different reasons...
1.The 67 Impala is almost a bastard child as far as parts and new information.
2. It helps me do things better...if I had no videos to do...I would probably cut corners...but the videos hold me to a better standard... I also have worked on my garage a lot more for a better backdrop! Lol

Great job with the videos. I like your car as well. I've had a '68 for a long time and it seems like the '67 and '68 are largely over looked.

I think I was buying my wire wheels at Valu Home Center at the time I got the one in the hand. If I were to guess the brand was probably Stanley. I wasn't aware of HF at that time. Those sandpaper flappers work quite well and are worth trying.

Keep up the great work :)!

Thank you, I see myself getting a bit better at the video stuff. A little bit better mind you lol!
Always looking for better ideas or steered in the right direction if I am heading off the edge.

I am starting to see a forward progress now... metalwork is done, so now is the fun stuff. I dont think I will ever work on a car again till the metal work is done... It makes a forward dirrection possible without as many backward steps...and if I find more metal work needing done...I dont have fresh paintwork on it..

Thanks again for the subscriptions, likes and shares! Look forward to more videos. Excited because by using tbe videos...it ensures no cutting corners!
