    • An Electric Restoration- Part 3 Putting Some Color on the Body

      Since the last time we checked in with Wayne he has turned his attention to the body work and paint on his Chevy S10 electric restoration project. Luckily Wayne spent the time to find a rust-free and nearly dent-free base for this project, so with a little sanding and minor body work he was ready for some Eastwood Buff Tan Urethane Primer Sealer Surfacer to seal and level the body with. After some block sanding Wayne (and his wife of course!) decided on Eastwood Pin Up Red Urethane Paint or as he calls it "lipstick red". The paint went on with little hassle and Wayne has been busy assembling the firewall and wet sanding and buffing the body. We can't wait to see some proper photos of the truck fully assembled and sitting outside the shop, that red REALLY pops!

    • Spray Paint can't stand the heat? Maybe it should get out of your car's "kitchen"!

      When I say kitchen, I of course mean "engine bay". Everyone loves to clean up their engine bay and painting pieces of your car's power plant has always been a proven way to do so . Commonly folks will reach for that can of cheap spray paint under the work bench. Sure this will make the part initially look better, but what will it look like in the long run? Engine temperatures in many vehicles can be quite high (most average 250-300 degrees). Unfortunately that can of "Ford Blue" econo spray paint from under your work bench won't cut it.

      We at Eastwood have developed a high temperature engine paint that boasts the highest temperature rating in the industry at 650F! In order to do this we have worked hard with some of the newest ceramic technology to come up with a finish that can not only withstand high temps, but also resist small chips and most chemicals! The paint can either be brushed on, or for the smoothest finish, shot with a HVLP spray gun. We have also been working hard to come up with all of the standard engine colors (Ford Blue, Chevy Orange) that you love, but also have a few cult classics that you may want to check out (AMC Blue comes to mind!).

      For a full description, check out our video we just recently finished showing off the product on our YouTube page!
