  • Bay One Customs Cameo SEMA Truck Build Candy Paint Job Sneak Peak

    T.C. and crew have been very busy working on their Project Cameo Truck build for SEMA 2013 this year. We recently shared some DIY videos that TC put together with tips for spraying and clearing a candy paint job (view them here) on the center console for the truck and we couldn't wait to see the entire truck in that beautiful candy red!

    Luckily we didn't need much patience and T.C. sent us some teaser shots of the truck in the spray booth. We wanted to share these photos with you. They're sneak peaks, we'll get you better ones as the truck goes back together! The truck is covered in Eastwood coatings from our primers, based with T.C.'s secret base coat (we'll release it soon!), Eastwood Candeez Vino Rojo Candy Paint, and countless coats of Eastwood European Urethane Clear Coat to get this amazing finish! We can't wait to see the truck start to come together. TC is working on some other DIY videos and we'll give you some more sneak peaks as soon as we get them!

  • More than just athletes on display at the London Olympics

    Walking around London during the Olympics, you'd expect to see all sorts of interesting people from every corner of the world (well, maybe not Antarctica; I don't think they have a track team this year).

    As an Eastwood customer, though, you're more into noticing all the different vehicles you might see during this international gathering. So you'd sprint right past the Men's 110m Hurdles venue and make a beeline to Shoreditch to enjoy the BMW collection of its 18 "Art Cars"—racing cars painted by famous artists.

    No, they didn't use Eastwood Concours spray guns (as far as I know!), nor did they use our Candeez paints, but it's still cool to see what a well-known artist can do with a racing car as a canvas! You may have heard of a few of these guys: Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Alexander Caldor and more. (My favorite paint job is on the 2010 BMW M3 GT2, by Jeff Koons; see it above, and read about it here.)

    But if you just can't make it to London this year, you can see a photo gallery of the cars here.

    I guess you can watch the Men's 110m Hurdles on tape delay when you're done.
