  • Autobody Teacher and Students Teach How to Paint A Car using Eastwood Products

    Donnie Smith's (AKA "Butler Collision") YouTube channel has for a while now been a wealth of FREE knowledge for anyone interested in learning more about the collision or autobody hobby and trade. Recently Donnie and his students decided to tackle a color change on a 2003 Mustang and document the supplies, costs, and time needed to do the job. Along the way they're using DIY-geared Eastwood products to help make the job easier AND more cost effective. We're excited to see how the car turns out and maybe we'll even learn a thing or two ourselves along the way! Make sure you follow the project on their Collision Blast Blog.  Click Here To Read Full Post...

  • Hobby Month Customer Spotlight- Marc M. Bike Klub After-School Instructor

    This entire month we've been talking about customers that are crazy for their hobby and some of their beautiful creations. For our final feature we're going to spotlight a guy that took his hobby even further than most and married it with his profession. Marc has been building Motorcycles and Hot Rods since he was a kid alongside his father. During that time he's learned the ins and outs of building his own projects from scratch. Not everyone can fall into doing their hobby as a profession and Marc was no different. He's spent the past 17 years in the education industry and specifically the past 10 teaching Canadian youth in public schools. During his time as a school teacher he's taught everything from Math to Metallurgy. You can see where were going with this right?!  Click Here To Read Full Post...

    We're firm believers that the "Motorhead bug" runs in the family. Most times when talking with an enthusiast you'll find someone in their family got them into cars at a young age. You can fight it, but it will find you at some point in life and you'll be tinkering with your own project car eventually.   Click Here To Read Full Post...
