Specialty White & Black Wax By Meguiar's
According to the 2011 DuPont Automotive Color Popularity Report, white, gray, and black cars account for 70 percent of the vehicles on the road today. Knowing this, Meguiar's has developed White Wax and Black Wax, each designed to tackle specific problems facing light and dark paints and maximize the brilliance and gloss results consumers crave.
With owners of white and light colored cars in mind, using revolutionary Super Micro Abrasives Technology (SMAT), Meguiar's created White Wax to deep clean surfaces and bring out the brilliance in their paint. Meguiar's says that consumers will immediately see gleaming results, as White Wax restores a fresher look to their vehicle's surface.
Owners of dark-to-black colored vehicles will love Meguiar's Black Wax, which creates an exceptional gloss and polished look. With no dyes or colorants added to the formula, this wax cleans, polishes and protects the paint, giving owners the “wet” look only darker cars can achieve. Black wax will be especially helpful with dark-colored cars that have rock, bug, and/or road damage to the front ends. Normally, this damage will trap the white wax, thus enhancing the blemishes, but Black Wax will offer a more uniform finish.
Available now at major retailers and auto enthusiast/specialty retailers nationwide in a 7 oz. tube in a paste form, White Wax and Black Wax are backed by Meguiar's industry-leading care technology and performance guarantee.
Thread-On Vintage Style Knockoff
From the very early days of vintage motorsports, many teams quickly determined that races could be won or lost by the efficiency of their pit stops. Early adopters of the thread-on, spindle mount knockoff, made for quicker tire changes and pit stops, and it wasn't long before gear heads, hot rod enthusiasts, and weekend warriors from that era began emulating the performance and styling cues from their motorsports heroes.
Vintage knockoffs became a styling and automotive performance statement in the hot rod culture, and Rocket Racing Wheels now offers a redesigned, vintage-style knockoff that allows for perfect fitment on its five- and six-lug applications. The new design offers the same spindle-mount styling, but perfects it with a much safer bolt-on mounting application. The Rocket Vintage Style Knockoff with threaded adapters is sold in pairs, one left- and one righthand thread for safety. When correctly installed, you have a stylish, safe, knockoff that is in a tightening mode all the way around your ride.
The Rocket Racing vintage-style knockoff fits on every new Rocket Racing Wheel. Polished or chrome finishes are available to match your wheel and/or theme.

International Aero Products recently introduced a new polymer-infused clay bar for auto detailing, and it is designed to save you time when making your ride look its best. Rather than using the clay bar and then following up with a wax, Aero's Glide leaves a layer of Aero's co-polymer to protect painted surfaces while the clay is used.
Glide is safe to use on all painted surfaces including clear coat, and Aero says it is great for removing tree sap, bug residue, paint overspray, environmental fallout, road tar, rail dust, minor oxidation, stubborn dirt, and minor topical scratches. Each can of Glide includes two separate clay bars, and Aero recommends using its Finale, Aero's Interior and Exterior Multi-Surface Cleaner, as a lubricating agent while using the clay bar.

Modify Your MAF At Home
Factory and aftermarket mass air meters have long been a source of frustration for tuners, but now the JMS Mass Air Modifier can filter the mass air signal, while also scaling the signal to extend the dynamic range of the sensor. Cold air kits, camshafts, and the architecture of your air inlet among other things, can cause turbulent airflow and a noisy mass airflow (MAF) signal, often resulting in driveability issues. The JMS Mass Air Modifier features a simple switch that allows you to choose between filtering the signal at idle or cruise. Use the rotary switch to choose between 16 built-in levels of filtering.
JMS offers a simple spreadsheet that provides mass airflow values for use with aftermarket custom tuning software, along with thorough instruction manuals and video how-to guides. The JMS Mass Air Modifier features advanced electronics housed in an aluminum case, a complete OEM-grade plug-and-play wiring harness using shielded cable, with additional cables for 0-5 volt signal input and optional on-board enable/disable switch. Whether you have a vintage Ford with a late-model engine swap, or you have a late-model vehicle, JMS's Mass Air Modifier will help you get the most out of your modified combination.
