In Progress: Search Products by Year, Make, and Model

I'm in the process of categorizing all vehicle products by year, make, and (optionally) model to help make it easier to find what you're looking for. For now, if you don't see something, it's probably because I just haven't tagged that particular product. In the meantime, you can still use the "Search Products" free-form text search and the "Search Products by Type" menu to find products. If you're not sure, just ask.

Site Software Update on 21 September, 2019

The software used to power this web site was updated on September 21, 2019. The update included migration of all content, users, and order information from the old site, so hopefully everything will continue to work as it has before. I've tried to improve the way search works, and I've added menus that help you find parts organized by manufacturer. Please contact us if you run into any issues and I'll do my best to fix things as quickly as I can.

New Product: 1969 - 1970 Shelby Mustang Front Bumper Rubber Shield Set

I just added a new product to my inventory: a reproduction of the rubber shields used between the front bumper and stone deflector used on 1969 and 1970 Shelby Mustangs. We reverse-engineered an original shield to produce the most accurate reproduction on the market. Each set of two reversible shields is listed in our catalog for $20 plus shipping.

New Bonaldi Brake Valve Kit for 1971 - 1974 Pantera

A customer recently asked me if I had a rebuild kit for the Bonaldi proportioning valve used on his de Tomaso Pantera. I didn't then, but I do now! As usual, I've also written articles that describe how to disassemble and rebuild the valve. Here are the links:
