  • Eastwood Two Time Popular Mechanics Editors Choice Award at SEMA 2012

    Winning a new product award at SEMA is pretty exciting and every company at the SEMA show is eager to receive any type of recognition for their new products. Here at Eastwood we work every day to try and get you new innovative products you can actually use.

    This year at the 2012 SEMA show one of our items in the new product showcase was picked for an Editors Choice Award by Popular Mechanics Magazine once again. You may remember last year our Aerosol Injection won an award. This year our product designer Mark R accepted the 2012 award for our MIG Spot Weld Kit.

    Mark and our R&D crew developed this product just like many of our products; he found a problem while working on his own restoration project and designed an affordable solution. Now you can save money and space by keeping the MIG spot weld kit on your welding cart. Just thread it onto your MIG gun when you want to use it without having to drag out another tool.

    We're honored to win the award two years in a row, and while many product designers would be feeling the pressure to go for a three-peat; we're just doing the same we've been doing for years.. bringing you affordable, innovative products to solve problems in the shop.

  • Imperial Speedster Wins the Go For the Gold Award

    Murray Pfaff recently took home one of the largest prizes in the Hot Rod community. The Starbird's Go for the Gold award! He beat out the 2010 Riddler car "Gold Digger". Eastwood was happy to donate and sponsor this build along the way with many products including Rust Encapsulator, Underhood Black, Spray Gray, and many more! Obviously we are equally as thrilled!

    Check out this video where we caught up with Murray at SEMA 2011 in Las Vegas and found out a little back story on the car.

  • Eastwood Receives the Editors Choice Award from Popular Mechanics

    One of the tough parts of being a product designer is that a LOT of your hard work goes unnoticed. No one remembers the hours spent designing, testing, and tweaking to get a product fit to go into production. Luckily we have a great group of guys that do this stuff not only because it pays the bills, but also because they love what they are doing. Our own J.R. had one of his newest products here at Eastwood get some limelight from the Editors at Popular Mechanics Magazine when they picked the Eastwood "Aerosol Injection" system for a 2011 SEMA Editors Choice Award. We are over the moon about this most recent notoriety, and can't wait for our first batch to hit your hands. It really will make countless jobs in the shop, and around the house much easier. I know you'll find new uses for it everyday!

    Watch this space and our homepage for the full launch of our two new Aerosol Injection products late this year. It's a must have!

  • Eastwood Live At SEMA 2011- Day 2

    Today was the first official opening day of SEMA 2011, but for Eastwood it is day 2. Every day it seems like new cars pop up, today was no different. As soon as we walked into the parking lot I spied an extra cool bare metal late 40's Dodge (if you know anything about me I LOVE 40's and 50's Chrysler and Dodges). This thing has an insane amount of custom work and we were lucky enough to do an interview with one of the guys from Autocore Kustoms that is building it. Stay tuned for our video feature on the car later this week!

    We also were flattered to be picked for a Popular Mechanics Magazine Editors Choice Award for one of our new Eastwood-engineered products. We are excited to launch to the public here soon, as the response from our peers was amazing!

    Below are the highlights from todays show. Watch out for the pics and details from tomorrows show on our Facebook!
