Mustang wiring harness
When making an engine swap using the 2005-2009 Mustang GT three-valve 4.6L engine, complete your project with a new wiring harness from Ron Francis Wiring. Offered in both panel/telorvek style or wrapped, it is available for both manual and 5R55S automatic transmissions. Kits come complete with everything to hook up factory sensors, ECM (although reprogramming is necessary), electric fans, fuel pump wiring and diagnostic ports, plus detailed instructions.

Flex-A-Lite has added to their line of direct fit Flex-a-Fit aluminum radiators with models for 1963-1972 and 1973-1982 Corvettes. Available with either front or side outlets, they are available with or without electric fans. The radiator/fan combination bolts in without drilling or cutting required. The electric fan moves 3,300cfm of air, and comes mounted on the radiator from the factory. Radiators feature a two-row, one-inch all-aluminum core with side tanks hand-welded to patented “T” channels. The company also sells an optional direct-fit transmission cooler kit (shown) for automatic-equipped cars.
Keep the interior of your vehicle cooler and quieter by installing Under Carpet Lite from Boom Mat. The multi-layer composite material measures just ½-inch thick, and is easily installed by mechanical fasteners or with the company’s high-temperature spray adhesive (sold separately). It features three layers of acoustic and thermal insulating material over a base material. It prevents the transfer of noise, rattles and squeaks, and eliminates up to 85 percent of unwanted heat. It is available in four sizes:
24 x 54 inches (nine square feet), 48 x 54 inches (18 sq. ft.),
54 x 72 inches (27 sq. ft.), or in bulk (one linear foot x 54 inches).

Precision CNC-machined from 6061 T-6 billet aluminum, it comes complete with stainless steel fasteners for durability and corrosion resistance. It mounts to the bottom of the front fascia using factory screw locations, so there are no holes to drill. It can be installed without having to raise the car, and comes in either a black anodized or polished finish.

Made in the U.S., the shocks have stainless steel inserts, an anodized finish, custom Aurora spherical bearings, and the ability to make quick ride height adjustments.
’57 Chevy dash panel
Classic Thunder Road expands their product line with a new series of instrument panels for 1957 Chevys.

Available in three finishes (matte black, brushed aluminum or carbon fiber), they come with or without gauges and wiring harness. Buyers have a choice of AutoMeter gauges or the company’s High Velocity or Concours gauges. The main panel houses a speedometer, tachometer, water temperature and oil pressure gauges, while the secondary panel has a fuel gauge and voltmeter.
