Crappy old metal and lacking the skills to make a new hood from scratch forced me to mig weld the two long seams up, but taking my time and hammer welding as I'm going has kept it all flat. #fuckyourboltonmods #slowandsteady #pilehouse #eastwoodco

humbleslc : Looks like you may have test fitted something else.
irontrap : @humbleslc 🙊 saving sharing that until I'm further along with it.

Got the 3 hood pieces gapped and tack welded together. Checking gaps and such and it already fits MUCH better than before. Now the long process of weld, hammer, weld, hammer, weld, hammer. #pilehouse #hamb #custom #kustom #hammerweldforever #eastwoodco
irontrap : @_dan_gerous_ @casuallywreckless Thanks guys! I think that top trim piece on the front of the hood really brings the front end all together.
mk1love : So rad!
suedzville : Great progress irontrap. Koolzville for sure.
patdoody : I'm not gonna lie I wasn't too into this when it was in its infancy but I am really digging how its coming out!
skippy_made : Loving all the pile house updates!

An hour, a 4.5" grinder and an #eastwoodco stripping disc, followed by fast etch and this rough hood is all clean metal and ready for repair. #pilehouse #hamb #patinakiller #rust #messyjobs
surrealatrocities : Are we nosing or decking this hood?
eastwoodco : @surrealatrocities Has already been nosed before it was stripped. Getting converted to one piece and changing how it opens next. -Matt/EW
matt_rad : Finally 😘

Playing with some ideas for new rear fenders on #pilehouse when I build the new bed shortly. Top is original. I'm personally leaning towards the middle option. #imnotthatgoodatphotoshop
irontrap : @stabbings I was thinking about making a removable fender skirt for the rear fenders a side project down the road, could be a cool way to change up the look from time to time 👍
planrforrobert : I like the middle one as well, but have you thought about making something that fully matches the body lines of the front fenders? Maybe something as squared off would work?
joshpaashaus : Middle for sure
bobby_ullmann : Middle
coreykeeton : What @planrforrobert said
shannon_hamilton : Top
kragelrock : I'd follow the front fender lines and replicate something symmetrical & almost mirrored for the rear @irontrap
am12sec12v : Top

Finally got the front sitting how I want on #pilehouse now to build a new bed/rear fenders to replace the shitty original stuff and get the rear down.
pkopf : Looks awesome!!
queen_wasp : 😍
babababird : Your gonna build a bed? Didn't you go through the trouble of extending that one?
dubaddict : Awesome
irontrap : @babababird yea I did but the bed is all rotten and bent up and will take too much work to make as nice as I want. Also I want to run diff rear fenders and making that work will be a pain in the ass so I'd rather make new stuff from scratch. Basically I change my mind all the time haha

Called in some adorable help to finish the second wheel tub on #pilehouse today. @missashley_e #tig #welding #hamb #hotrod #shesaquicklearner
promk1ng : @irontrap r
promk1ng : @irontrap ugh sorry... looking for a decent tig/plasma combo to learn on.. I have a background with mig... Which setup do you recommend? I keep seeing them go on and off of sale? Thanks man love your rocco
irontrap : @promk1ng Our Tig 200 ac/Dc is what I use and it's nice for a beginner/hobbyist. Can do steel stainless and aluminum. The versa cut 40 is ideal for most automotive stuff but the versacut 60 is the balls out-cut anything model hahaa

dubdaze68 : How much did that invade on the foot well.l?
irontrap : @dubdaze68 not that much. It's probably a foot or so to the left of the brake pedal and its up in the kick panel so you'd have to put your foot above the the height of the pedals to even touch it. So cliff notes: not much at all. Haha
chim_richolds : looks good buddy
massiveal : Loved the slide show. Thanks for documenting the build so well
irontrap : @chim_richolds thanks! @massiveal No problem hopefully it helps others 👍

I HATE cutting shit apart I already worked on but if it ain't right it ain't right. Building some mini tubs for the cab corners today on #pilehouse #twostepsbackoneforward
surlypirate : What's that from? The bags?
irontrap : @surlypirate I built the new firewall/cab corners around 14" wheels and tires and I changed my mind and ran 15's with taller whitewalls so it sat on the tires when aired out. I just didn't like the idea of the weight of the front end on the cab corner/tire when parked.
surlypirate : Son of a bitch.
rain_wizard : The old adage of 'measure twice, cut once', never took into account changing your mind. Looks clean though. 👍

In a modern car you take the simple things like a working fuel pump and ignition/starter.... but in something like this it's a big step. Making noise will have to wait until after SEMA! #eastwoodco #almostarealvehicle #pilehouse
