    • 2014 Eastwood SEMA Hands-On Award Winners

      Each year we blow up our social media feeds with our favorite vehicles from SEMA. This year we decided we'd take it a step further and give the owners and builders of some of our favorite vehicles notoriety for their hard work. After some brainstorming the Eastwood "Hands-On" Awards were born. The idea behind these awards are to recognize some of the standout vehicles from the show. We judged on a number of factors from quality of work, execution of concept, and just outright ridiculousness of the finished product. Really the car needed to have something "special" to catch our eyes and earn the award. We'll admit we leaned heavily on the smaller shops and DIY builders that didn't have a million dollar dream team of employees and tools to finish the car, there's plenty of awards out there for those guys!   Click Here To Read Full Post...

    • Eastwood 2014 SEMA Hands-On Awards

      Racing-Wheel-Winners-Trophy

      We've been going to SEMA for a long time and we always share our favorite vehicles from the show with everyone that can't make the event. This year we decided to give some additional recognition to the builders and owners of some of these vehicles. Thus spawned the Eastwood "Hands-On" Awards for SEMA 2014. Below are the different classes we'll be awarding for and what we're looking for. Follow along as we narrow down our favorites from the event this year!

      Customer Favorite: A panel of Eastwood Experts will select 10 “Eastwood Picks” on the first day of SEMA. These vehicles will be selected based on presentation, paint, engine, custom fabrication, and fit/finish. Eastwood will post its “Eastwood Picks” to its Facebook page by the first night of SEMA, where customers will select their favorite by voting. The vehicle with the most votes by end of day on Wednesday will be awarded the prestigious Customer Favorite Hands-On award.

      Best Rubber Wrap: A panel of Eastwood Experts will search all over SEMA for the best rubber wrap/dip of SEMA. Judging will be based on the overall appearance and most unique usage of a rubber wrap product. The selected vehicle will be awarded the prestigious Best Rubber Wrap Hands-On award on Thursday of SEMA.

      Best Fabrication: A panel of Eastwood Experts will search all over SEMA for the vehicle featuring the best fabrication of SEMA. Judging will be based on the overall appearance, presentation, level of difficulty, and most unique fabrication. The selected vehicle will be awarded the prestigious Best Fabrication Hands-On award on Thursday of SEMA.

      Best Paint: A panel of Eastwood Experts, including Paintucation host Kevin Tetz, will search the show for the best paint of SEMA. Judging will be based on the overall appearance, finish and execution. The selected vehicle will be awarded the prestigious Best Paint Hands-On award on Thursday of SEMA.

      Stay tuned we'll be sharing the contenders throughout the show and announcing the winners each day!

    • 2014 AACA Hershey Fall Swap Meet Report

      For most here at Eastwood The fall AACA Hershey swap meet has become a tradition to visit each year. The reality with Hershey is that if you can't take off of work and come mid-week, you're going to miss the REAL good deals. Heck, some of the best deals are scored by fellow vendors on setup day it seems! I decided to swing by on the first official day of the swap meet and see what this year had in store.   Click Here To Read Full Post...
