Juliano’s Hi-Tech Woodgraining

There’s something about a woodgrain dash that no other finish can match for sheer elegance and beauty. It traditionally required hours of tedious work, and you pay dearly for it. Thankfully, it’s the 21st century, and Juliano’s offers woodgraining by a process known as hydographics—which translates into a fast turnaround time and a lower price. The process is a modern, state-of the-art technique that re-creates the same old-world finishes we love. There’s an infinite range of color possibilities in yellow, tan, red, and brown wood tones, in every traditional woodgrain style, such as oak, burl, birdseye maple, rosewood, walnut, cherry, etc. Turnaround time is days, not months, and large pieces are not a problem. Juliano’s can woodgrain virtually any kind of part made of any material, including steering wheels and all types of large trim panels.

Billet Exhaust Hangers from Deeds Engineering

These beautiful new hangers provide the exhaust industry with a new, long awaited option for mounting exhaust systems. The billet aluminum construction translates to a solid, tough product while the soft, high-temp bushing dampens exhaust vibration to your truck’s chassis. Stainless steel hardware holds everything together for a high-quality package. They’re available for 2¼-, 2½-, and 3-inch exhaust tubing sizes, and all of ’em are offered in a natural machined or a hand-polished finish. The hangers use an aluminum body to clamp around the exhaust tubing and a sleeve through the bushing is used to bolt the hanger to your chassis or a bracket. These hangers are perfect for anyone who requires a high-tech machined look, and also doesn’t want to cut, grind, or weld on their finished chassis to mount their exhaust system.
