With painless Performance's new Convenience Module, you can bring your vintage Mustang into the 21st century with the standard features found on today's new Mustangs, including dome light delay and dimming, turn signal alert, and radio delay (when ignition is shut off, the radio stays on for 15 minutes or until a door is opened). It also adds updated headlight features, like delay (keeps headlights on for 15 seconds to illuminate dark parking areas), warning chime if lights are left on, and automatic on and off using the included light sensor. Installation typically requires a couple of hours and no cutting of the factory wiring.

Until now, the only way to repair damaged floorpans in a '79-'93 Mustang was to weld up the existing floors or repair by sections, which presented its own set of problems. Now Latemodel Restoration Supply offers complete Fox-body floorpans with the same stamped-steel construction as the factory along with the correct bends and hole placements. The one-piece design makes it easy to replace severely damaged original floors. To order or for more information, call Latemodel Restoration Supply at 866/507-3786 or visit the website at www.latemodelrestoration.com.
