  • Kevin Tetz's "Project Jaded" '66 Mustang Build to Use Full Line of Eastwood Products!


    At SEMA 2011 we met with one of our favorite pros in the industry, Kevin Tetz. While chatting, Kevin mentioned a few hints about a project he's been keeping hush-hush. After some persuading we got him to leak the details; a '66 Mustang with loads of custom modifications. Turns out Kevin was just about to start on the heavy metal work on the car. We love getting our products into the hands of seasoned pros, and gave Kevin a sneak peak at our then unreleased Contour Body Fillers and Evolution Paint Gun. Needless to say, he loved it all, and we agreed he needed Eastwood products on Project Jaded from bare metal to the finishing touches.

    Fast forward a few months and we are happy to announce Kevin Tetz's Project Jaded and we want to let him give you a sneak peak look at the car! He even divulges some of those details he was holding back at SEMA 2011! He even was nice enough to give you some tips on mixing filler, and his run-down of the new Contour body filler line later in the video. This is a video you NEED to watch until the end!

    Stay tuned here on the Eastwood blog for updates as Kevin starts digging into the car. He still has some tricks up his sleeves and we can't wait to see how it turns out!
