  • Blue Steel 32 Ford Roadster- AMBR Contender 2014

    Every year at SEMA there's always one car that is so over the top and amazingly clean that it blows us away. This year it was a custom 1932 Ford Roadster named "Blue Steel". Sure 32 Fords have been done a million times, but few take it so far that it's close to.. dare we say it... OCD clean? This 32 Ford definitely gives off the high-dollar, high-profile shop build. I was surprised when I got to talking to the guys responsible for the build that they weren't from a big name SOCAL shop, but rather a bunch of friends that built the car in a tractor repair shop over the past year.  Click Here To Read Full Post...

  • SEMA 2013 Pre-Show Coverage

    In the automotive world there’s a few events you can always count on being the hotbed of “what’s cool” in the hobby. The one we always look forward to is right around the end of October or Early November and that’s the SEMA Show. Eastwood Company has been attending SEMA since our early days and we’ve watched it grow each year. The 2013 SEMA Show is no different and this year it’s almost outgrown the HUGE space it takes up at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This year I’ve heard rumors that the show has spilled out into the parking lot and halls of the adjacent Las Vegas Hotel. This means there will be more top-notch show vehicles, new products, and gear heads like you and I then before!   Click Here To Read Full Post...
  • 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!
