  • Building Custom Mini Wheel Tubs for Pile House

    One thing a lot of longterm builds have in common is that the builder or owner tend to change their minds throughout the build. This has definitely been the case with Project Pile House. Over the past two years I've changed Pile House from being a "thrown-together" type build to something a bit more thought out and nicer. Even small items like wheel and tire combo have changed and caused me to go back and adjust things as needed.  Click Here To Read Full Post...
  • Custom Bomber Seat Fabrication

    To be honest, I picked just about the worst possible project vehicle I could when starting Project Pile House. It didn't have much going for it, the body was dented and rusty, the drivetrain was seized and trashed, and the interior was equally as dilapidated. My goal is to show what can be done on a budget with some key tools and a little bit of creative thinking.  Click Here To Read Full Post...
  • How to Install an Aftermarket Shifter on a Chevy V8 and TH350.

    When building Project Pile House I've pretty much discarded all of the original mechanics and I've been building from the ground up. I've already installed a SBC (small block Chevy V8) engine and a TH350 automatic transmission in the truck. Next I needed to install a universal shifter that would work with the changes I've made and look "right".  Click Here To Read Full Post...
  • Project Pile House Late Summer Update

    Last time I checked in on Project Pile House I had just gotten done welding floor pans in and rebuilding the rotten door jambs. Since then I've been really busy and I have been slacking on my updates here. I have been posting regular updates on Instagram if you want to follow along feel free to check the #pilehouse tag or view the pics on your desktop HERE.  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!
