Insulated Fox

Our Fox Mustangs were never built to be comfortable road cars. Therefore, they need all the help they can get. Latemodel Restoration’s new ’79-’93 Mustang Complete Insulation Kit is a great way to reduce road noise, prevent vibrations, and keep your interior insulated. This kit features foil backed insulation for Fox door panels, rear quarter panels, roof, cowl, floor pan, trunk floor, and trunk lid or hatch. Interior temperatures are regulated better due to the heat shield foil backing. Info: (866) 507-3786; www.latemodelrestoration.com.

If you want to give your Mustang’s engine an old-school look, Edelbrock’s Classic Series engine dress-up accessories deliver a definitive appeal that brings back a look from the 1950’s and ’60s.

Braking Shot

More resembling an energy drink container, Phoenix Systems’ new BrakeShot is designed to fight corrosion induced by the harmful effects of copper. DOT-approved and specifically formulated to retard copper corrosion in the braking system, BrakeShot is designed to prevent sticking calipers, ailing master cylinders, and other ABS braking troubles brought about by corrosion and high copper levels in the brake system. A one-ounce bottle of BrakeShot treats up to a liter of brake fluid, which is the average capacity of a vehicle’s braking system. Info: (866) 760-5842; www.brakebleeder.com.

Boot Protection

For spark plug boot protection on your Mustang, check out DEI’s new 8-inch Titanium Protect-A-Boots. Capable of withstanding temps up to 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit, these boots are designed to provide maximum thermal protection against heat generated from the engine block, exhaust manifolds, or headers. Excessive heat may cause wires and boots to burn, harden or crack resulting in arcing, misfire or full ignition failure. Constructed from heat resistant pulverized lava rock material that is stranded and woven into a double-wall weave, these boot protectors are resistant to chemicals, abrasions and contaminants.
