Eastwood’s ‘Shop Talk’, Episode 28.5: JF Launier - 2014 Ridler Award Winner | Eastwood Blog | Eastwood | Scoop.it
It’s probably safe to assume that the Detroit AutoRama Ridler Award is the most prestigious honor in the fabrication world.

Typically two people will receive a trophy: one to the builder and one to the shop that financed it.

In the case of JF Launier, he was awarded both trophies: A testament to JF’s work ethic, confidence, and craftsmanship.

Learn make a Lap Weld | Eastwood Blog

Learn make a Lap Weld | Eastwood Blog | Eastwood | Scoop.it

A common joint found in auto repair work, the lap joint is a piece where two pieces of metal overlap each other. An ideal lap weld should have a good amount of weld bead penetration without the upper edge melting back or overlaying. If the upper layer melts too much, the lap joint will be too weak and thin. Making lap welds takes a good amount of practice to get it right, so experiment with your welding angle, arc length and rate of stitching welder travel to find the best combination for you.

El Mirage Land Speed Race Season Opener 2014 | Eastwood Blog | Eastwood | Scoop.it

Going fast has been a fascination since the beginning of time. Before motorized vehicles our ancestors were racing horses and horse carriages. As time went on and cars were invented, man has become obsessed with going as fast as possible in a motorized vehicle. These days drag racing is a BIG thing and every weekend people get together to watch men and women launch themselves down the 1/4 and 1/8 mile paved race track. You may not realize it, but drag racing and high speed runs in motorized vehicles originally started in dry lake beds. Back in the 30's a few car clubs filled with racers came together to form the SCTA (Southern California Timing Association) and create a set of rules and regulations for land speed racing on the dry lakes. Today the SCTA is still around and runs on one of the first dry lake beds (El Mirage) where it all started.

How to Make Custom Hood Hinges | Eastwood Blog

How to Make Custom Hood Hinges | Eastwood Blog | Eastwood | Scoop.it

One of the big things I love about custom cars are the small details that builders put into a vehicle to make things simplified and flow. These type of modifications can take as much or MORE time than the larger, more common mods. My vision of Pile House from early on was a smoothed out 50's style custom with my own twist on it. Everything has been done with restraint and although some of the mods will be missed or overlooked when the truck is done, they're important to keep things clean and smooth. One of the big modifications on the truck I finished this winter was the one piece hood conversion.
