From paper to 3/8" steel and some time with the @eastwoodco versa-cut 60 and a flap disc I have a set of hood hinges for #pilehouse I cut out today. Thanks to @mhammsteak for the metal hookup! #eastwoodco #custom #fabrication #plasma
cbarimani : You mock them up yet? Looking forward to see how this turns out @irontrap
irontrap : @cbarimani nah just got the second one smoothed out at the end of the day Monday. Hoping I can get them hung from the truck this week if possible!

Having smart coworkers makes life much easier sometimes. Hood hinge pattern angles figures out. Just need to get some metal to cut the pattern out. #pilehouse #iknowitscheating
p_marc_two : Solid works is awesome
chim_richolds : not cheating.
george_dee01 : @irontrap I prefer SW to so many other softwares out there!
metalmuckler : It's one thing to draw it, it's another to actually produce it and make it work... I'm sure you'll knock it out of the park
flailings : #worksmarternotharder
irontrap : @metalmuckler Thanks man! We articulated the good in SW and made sure everything jived so It should work, the hard part is cutting and welding and making it all work in real life is all!
metalmuckler : Yup- that's what I was getting at ^

Need to fix the back gap of the hood, but the straps fixed the sagging in the center. Making new hood hinges is the next big step in the one-piece hood conversion. #pilehouse #cokertires #eastwoodco #bagged #custom #kustom

Test fitting the dash with the new brake pedal setup and I'm really digging how the simplified shaved dash looks. #pilehouse #eastwoodco #kustom #custom #hamb #thehamb
thatguybry : @irontrap odd question bit will he center section on the seat be following thru all the way to the floor like a center council type thing ? Also I have wheel pics for you if you need them , where do I send them again ?
irontrap : @thatguybry nah just on the seat. Ill be making a removable tunnel portion to cover around the trans and shifter at some point but that's all
irontrap : @thatguybry email is best: email@example.com
hi_im_frankie : Hey man where do you get your sheet metal from?
irontrap : @hi_im_frankie Yarde Metal as they're local to us at work. They only sell in full 8x10 sheets thought.

Little shrink here, little shrink there, little bit of hammering and then weld it all together and to the dash and #pilehouse has a glovebox. #metalfab #eastwoodco #fabrication #fuckyourboltonmods #diy

Starting work on the dash today. First order of business is shaving the factory radio opening. File to fit, tig welded, hammer the weld and blended. Not perfect but slowly getting better at getting repairs close to "metal finished". #tig #tig200 #custom #kustom #welding #pilehouse #workonmydaysoff #eastwoodco
irontrap : Don't mind the little spot weld marks on the right from spot welding a brace into the dash!
mhammsteak : @irontrap those little spots are the first thing I noticed.....
forgotmyid : Nice work bro. Truck looks Ace. Its funny i'm into hot rod's and mk1 golfs myself. @irontrap Your golf is beautiful
irontrap : @mhammsteak Yea from welding a bracket in on the backside, easily filled with a skim coat or with high build primer!

baggedbasket : Are you going to make your own aluminum dash?
irontrap : @baggedbasket No this truck is staying fairly "traditional" so just shaving some stuff on the OG dash and building my brake pedal mounts and installing a hidden pedal cluster for under the dash. Wish it just unbolted like some cars but no such luck!

Made up a little spring clip to hold the modified bullet onto the wheel. Just need to press a bearing into the bottom of the column housing and shave the extra holes on the column and the steering stuff is "done" on #pilehouse #hamb #kustom #custom #itsthelittlethings #eastwoodco

irontrap : @surlypirate It came out of a 59 tbird at a junkyard I frequent but I haven't been able to figure out exactly what model it came out of originally.. I dig it whatever it is!

surlypirate : Whatever it is, it's money.
myjamz : @irontrap I spot a nice 5.0 foxbody. Always had a soft spot for those

Haven't touch Project #pilehouse in a while and I decided to modify this #chrome bullet I got from @gambino_kustoms at #gnrs with an @eastwoodco carbide bit to fit the #Ford wheel I have on the truck. Just gotta make a small little bracket so it clips onto the wheel and I can start restoring the wheel itself! #kustom #custom #hamb #eastwoodco #fuckyourboltonmods
irontrap : Touched ^
infulleffect610 : Damn now you are just showing off letting me know you hung out and got cool stuff from @gambino_kustoms 👍😝 @irontrap

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

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
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
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
eddie_s_g : Middle
paulharley : I like the middle but maybe extend them a foot towards the front
