Monte Carlo/El Camino Dash Pad Restoration By Just Dashes

justdashes.jpgChevy’s 1978-’88 Monte Carlo and El Camino share the same dash pad. This huge pad is literally the entire dashboard of these vehicles, and age, weather conditions and UV rays have usually taken a toll on the vinyl material. Cracks, fading and material lifting are common problems. Since there are no reproductions available, and a quarter century old original will surely crack as well, a JUST DASHES restoration is the best solution.
This dash was available in most stock interior colors and the vinyl grain used by the factory is Seville. JUST DASHES will completely restore these vintage pads in the correct original color and grain pattern, or in a custom color of your choice from a supplied color sample. They can also provide plastic chrome plating, instrument cluster and gauge restoration as well as structural restoration of the dash frame. Contact them and discuss your interior restoration with one of their craftsmen. They will most likely be able to give you an over the phone price quote.
You can find out more on their products and services at www.justdashes.com or call 800-247-3274, In CA 818-759-9005, Fax: 818-759-9014, 5941 Lemona Avenue, Van Nuys. CA 91411.

march_meet.jpgRat rodders and “cacklefesters” recently came together with 
nostalgia fuelers and Funny Cars for a fantasy weekend at Famoso 

The personal 8mm movies of pioneer drag racers and lakes racers from the 1950s and ’60s have been merged into a fascinating new DVD,  “The Way It Really Was: The Rough Cut.”

primitive onboard camera.

Action and pit film from legendary drag strips at Long Beach, Santa 
Ana, Riverside, Pomona, Fontana, Saugus, Fremont and Famoso 
illustrates the evolutions not only of slingshot dragsters, altereds, 
gassers and drag bikes, but also of “push cars” and female fashions.

purchased 24/7 from Hot Rod Nostalgia’s SECURE Web store at www.hotrodnostalgia.com

Exile Turbo Systems Introduces MSBC-1 ET01 Multi Stage Electronic Boost Controller

New Multi Stage Boost Controller Produces Repeatable Controlled

exile_turbo.jpgExile Turbo Systems introduces the MSBC-1 ET01 multi stage boost
controller for performance, street, road race and drag race
applications. The MSBC-1 electronically controls the wastegate,
you can produce repeatable controlled boost profiles with a variety of
turbo systems and in a variety of applications wrapped up in a
cost-effective, easy-to-use package. Engineering a turbo system to
perform at its optimum involves carefully matching all components
including turbo, wastegate, intercooler and so on. Creating and
controlling boost is essential in obtaining maximum performance.

wastegate controls can help, to a degree, however they can get
complicated if you need more than one stage of boost and results can
vary depending on load, weather and other variables. Exile's SBC-1 ET01
electronic boost controller takes fine-tuning a turbo system to a whole
new level.

The new MSBC-1 ET01 features include

* Six stage programmable boost control

* 18 different ramp settings to control how fast the boost is allowed
to build including a 2 stage ramp made up of a starting ramp, ending
ramp and = a 50%, 60% or 70% switch point.

* 0-80 PSI target boost range in 1 PSI increments.

* Launch stage for drag racing

* Shift input for automatic stage selection for drag race applications.

* 4 built in timers for timed boost control.

* Front panel stage selection and programming.

* Read out of actual boost during boost control.

* Built in self diagnostic feature.

* 2 analog data recorder outputs for actual and target boost level

* 2 solenoid drive outputs for increase and decrease solenoids.

* Can be used with single and dual port wastegates.

Powermaster Model 1004 Intelligent 16V Battery Charger

powermaster_01.jpgWith over 12 years experience in setting the trend for innovation and reliability in automotive charging systems, Powermaster’s reputation for cutting-edge design and stead-fast performance has been unmatched.  Performance niche markets including street rods and restoration, road race, drag race, off road, marine, circle track and even world rally have all chosen Powermaster products for their superior and repeatable performance.

New for 2007, Powermaster has added a new and exciting 16-volt battery charger to its line of 16-volt products.  Designated part  # 1004, Powermaster’s new charger shares many of it’s exclusive hi-tech features with it’s big brother battery charger part # 1005, which has quickly become the preference of many competitors since it’s release over a year ago.   

Other chargers previously on the market force in current at a pre-set rate with no way to modify for various battery charge conditions.  Many less sophisticated chargers use one set voltage and rely on time as the only variable for charging.  Time based charging never allows the battery to be gently topped off; to do so would overheat the battery. Using other inferior chargers can also lead to overcharging, reduced battery life, and decreased battery performance.

Weighing in at just 18 lbs, the 1004 is the perfect charger for the hardcore racer who exclusively needs to charge 16 volt batteries with a compact durable unit.  Charging amperage is preset at 20 amps peak, 15 amps continuous, which testing has shown to be the most efficient level of charging current for AGM style 16-volt batteries.  The new 1004 intellicharger, like the 1005 utilizes superior microprocessor controlled, true 3 stage intelligent charging, meaning the charger actually has the ability to modify both voltage and amperage output across 3 distinct charging modes.  Three stage charging allows the battery to always receive current matched for its condition, which means longer battery life, and hotter charge with less time.  Best of all, the 1004 smart charger does all of this automatically and requires no monitoring by the racer; simply plug in the charger, attach the leads to the battery, and let the charger do the rest.  The 1004 can be left on the battery indefinitely, maintaining a 100% charge on the battery with no fear of overcharging.

Powermaster has been rapidly taking the 16-volt market by storm.  The new ultra-competitively priced 1004 16-volt battery charger will allow even more racers to experience the 16-volt difference this season without skewing their budgets.  With more features, better performance, rock-solid reliability and a low price, the competition had better watch out; the 1004 intellicharger is just as smart as it sounds! 

Powermaster offers a $25 customer rebate through the end of May.
