Art Deco Signal Light Switches
Hot Rods & Custom Stuff designed the Blinkie turn signal assembly to fill the need for an older, art deco-looking signal lamp controller with modern electronics inside. The originals of old had unsightly clamps and screws while the Blinkie has a smooth look in its cast aluminum housing that is polished or painted. Currently, Blinkie fits the common 1½-inch column tube. For cars and pickups with cramped cockpits where knee room is tight, a dash-mount version called Blinkie DASH is available with a small, unobtrusive lever as well. For the '40-up Fords with a shift rod on top of the column, Blinkie Shifter is set to be released this summer. All models include a self-cancelling feature and emergency flasher switch. Every Blinkie product is made in the USA. For further information, contact Hot Rods & Custom Stuff at 800-HOT-ROD-5 or visit www.hotrodblinkie.com.
Roadster Shop Revo IFS
REVO IFS is a new standard. REVO has been created from the ground up, leaving behind the antiquated Mustang II geometry and ride quality where it firmly belongs: in the past. Controlled roll centers, eliminated bumpsteer, and CAD-optimized camber and caster curves provide a suspension that offers the absolute best combination of ride quality and street performance. With 5.5 inches of wheel travel and positive and negative bumpstops, the REVO frontend allows smooth articulation through the full range of motion, creating the most comfortable, balanced, and street-friendly dynamics possible within this package. A new and innovative integrated sway bar design allows the use of a 1-inch OD splined sway bar tube, with no external mounting necessary. The carefully designed packaging leaves one of the smallest crossmember footprints available today, leaving you with more room and clearance to position your drivetrain where you want it without compromise. The REVO frontend has been designed from scratch using the latest CAD development software and design processes. With a year's worth of in-house development, the REVO IFS has been fine-tuned and streamlined to redefine the standard for street performance suspension. Currently available as a direct-fit crossmember or complete chassis for 1948-56 Ford pickups, 1947-54, and 1955-59 Chevrolet pickups, and as a complete chassis for 1949-54 and 1955-57 Chevrolet passenger cars.

Wheel Protector Impact Socket Set
GearWrench, a premier handtool brand from Apex Tool Group, known for tools that deliver speed, strength, and access, today announced its High-Strength Wheel Protector Impact Socket Set (sku number 84946).

New Wilwood Combination Proportioning Valve
Wilwood's new Combination Proportioning Valve substantially simplifies mounting, plumbing, wiring, and brake proportioning adjustments on vehicles with custom brake systems. The combination block maintains full isolation between front and rear fluid circuits and can be used in conjunction with any tandem outlet or dual mount master cylinder assemblies. The rear circuit has a single inlet and single outlet with the adjustable proportioning valve. The front circuit has a single inlet with two outlets. The new combination proportioning valve (part number 260-11179) can be run as a single outlet with one outlet plugged, or used to split the plumbing on its way to the front calipers.
