  • 2014 Lonestar Roundup Coverage

    What was once described to me as the “Best Little Show in Texas” has grown into one of the largest traditional hot rod and kustom car shows in the country. 2014 makes the 13th Annual Lonestar Roundup in Austin, TX. For the 4th time I made the 1300 mile round trip from my home in central Kansas straight down I-35 to the Roundup, for the 2nd time I took my own ride. The show has grown considerably since my first trip, it’s quickly finding the limits of the Travis County Expo Grounds.  Click Here To Read Full Post...

  • Shaving the Column- Custom Steering Column Mods

    I had previously covered in a few steps how I had come up with the steering setup on the truck. To make it short, I'm using a Packard steering column housing, a custom column shaft, and a Ford steering wheel. To make all of this work together took a bit of work, but I've got it all bolted up and it should all jive pretty good when done. Now I need to finish up the small details that will make the column not only look good, but also work smoothly together. I'll be covering the latter in another post, but for now I decided to show you how I went about shaving the unneeded holes from the column housing.   Click Here To Read Full Post...
  • 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...
  • SEMA 2013 Day 3 Coverage

    Most Automotive shows and events Day 3 is when things start to slow down. This isn't the case at SEMA. The show has SO MUCH to see that even for myself that's four days in; I was still finding new cars and products I hadn't seen before. I haven't even hit all of the buildings in the show and I have shot hundreds and hundreds of photos and I still feel like I'm missing a lot of good stuff!  Click Here To Read Full Post...
