• Smoothing the Back End- Frenched Taillights on Pile House.

    I will admit that I tend to over think things when I am building a custom car and sometimes I mock something up and I don't like it or decide I need to tweak the original idea. A while back I decided on a set of '62 Oldsmobile 88 taillights for the back of the truck. I liked the lens shape and chrome trim on them, but the bezel had peaked ends that made it tough to sink them into a relatively flat panel. For the sake of getting "something" in the rollpan I temporarily made brackets to slide them into the panel. At first I was "ok" with how they looked, but the further I got with building the tailgate on the backend I knew in the back of my head I needed to revisit how they were sitting.   Click Here To Read Full Post...
  • Eastwood Alsip Restores A Delivery Van

    We're creeping up on about a year since our second retail store has been open in Alsip, IL outside of Chicago. This store has been growing steadily and we're very thankful for the acceptance into the classic car community! Store Manager Trevor and his crew at the store decided they wanted to take on building up a vintage delivery van for a multi-purpose vehicle they could take to local cruise-ins, car shows, and to potentially deliver product locally. Sure we could have bought a brand new, crisp white Ford Transit and called it a day; but what's the fun in that!  Click Here To Read Full Post...
  • Grand National Roadster Show 2015- The year of Bare Metal?

    Our main focus here at Eastwood is to make products that the DIY guy or gal can afford and can produce pro quality work with. In order for us to be sure our products are good enough for you at home, we like to get our products into the hands of high end shops so they can put them to the test. This means our Eastwood "stuff" get used on some pretty high-end vehicles built by these shops. This year the Grand National Roadster Show was chocked-full of EXTREMELY high end vehicles, many of which had Eastwood products used on them! We decided to post up about our three favorite cars by some shops that we're honored to say use Eastwood products in their builds!  Click Here To Read Full Post...
