Sycamore, IL, January 30, 2013 - The second DVD set in the StreetRod 101 series is designed
to empower the home garage hot rod builder with the knowledge and confidence to make
modifications to a fiberglass street rod body ranging from minor to major and includes practical
information and tips on removing the little flaws inherent in most fiberglass bodies that must be
corrected to ensure a flawless paint job.
The 3-DVD set explains and simplifies choosing the correct fiberglass materials to work with; from
matte and cloth to resins and hardeners as well as choosing the most economic tools. Practical
personal protection and simplified shop cleanup tips are given, but the focus of the DVDs is on
showing how to do real-life fiberglass body modifications that one can duplicate easily at home.
Some of the illustrated examples included in the 5-hour DVD set are: how to lengthen a body by
4+ inches, how to add a door with hidden hinges, how to replace a firewall to gain 4 inches more
driver room, how to install floorboards, how to fit and install windshield posts, how to make a
transmission tunnel, how to make a fiberglass mould and how to form and maintain body
Also included are numerous mechanical tips such as: modifying door hinges, how to make a
steering column support and column drop, fabricating under dash mounts for master cylinder and
brake pedal, how to make a proper ratio brake pedal, and how to fabricate a dual brake pedal
assembly for use with beginning drivers and those with disabilities.
This 5-hour instructional DVD set is hosted by Bob Hamilton, an experienced home garage street
rod builder who became hooked on hot rods in the 1950s and who retired after 27 years as a high
school vocational shop instructor, teaching auto-mechanics, auto-body, paint and machine shop.
It's like spending half a day with Bob sharing his knowledge in his home street rod building shop.
Included as a special bonus is a video section on Fiberglass Top Modifications. Bob Hamilton shows
how to modify a fiberglass top made for a roadster so that it will fit a roadster pickup and he also
shows how to include a unique latching mechanism that lets the top stand up when open.
