Ready FOR Bed
For Chevy fans who've been looking for repop bedsides for '37-40 short- and longbed trucks, their dream has come true. Mar-K is now filling the void for this demand with complete bedsides comprised of the bedside panel, the front and rear stake pockets, and steel angle strip. These bedsides are made of 16-gauge electro-galvanized steel and the chain bracket is riveted and spot-welded to the stake pocket. Also, holes are included in the bedsides for fender installation and the front bed panel. Angle strips are punched with square holes, using the correct hole pattern, according to the manufacturer. Includes a free teardrop piece for welding onto the curl of the bedside. Custom upgrades are also available.
Mar-K Quality Parts
Now available for 327 to 400-plus-ci Chevy small-blocks, EngineQuest now offers cylinder heads with modified combustion chambers designed to accept either flat-top or dome pistons. These heads feature a thicker 0.4375 deck, hardened DuraBond exhaust seats, and Phospor bronze guides. Available with 180cc, 200cc, 220cc, or 235cc intake runners, the EQ heads feature a 64cc combustion chamber and angle plug. No matter how heavy your foot is, these heads are versatile enough to meet a wide range of road and track applications. All EQ 23 degree performance heads are also available with the smaller 50cc combustion chamber size to provide even more options in your engine building preferences.
We know how it goes. You're so focused on the big stuff that sometimes you forget to allow space for the little stuff. OTB Gear feels your pain. That's why they designed these new remote oil and fuel filters to not only look sharp, but to fit in small spaces. Available in both polished and unpolished versions, they project only 33/4 inches from the mounting surface and are made from A-356 aircraft grade aluminum. Both filters are the same diameter, with the oil filter only 3/4-inch longer than the fuel filter.
Fill 'Er Up!
Being period authentic is tough when all that's available is hard-to-find OEM stuff and no one has begun remanufacturing that one part you're interested in. If you've got a 390FE and are just waiting on a correct original-style oil fill cap to finish it, the wait is over. Scott Drake Enterprises offers these chrome, twist-on caps with double filtration for your '64-67 Ford or '68-and-up big-block motors without emissions controls. With the FoMoCo logo on top, it's just one more touch on your restoration the judges will appreciate.

Don't Slam The Gate
Power tailgates are often one-off jobs and many of us are left wondering how to duplicate such a mechanism on our own trucks. Pro's Pick has eliminated the need to create your own version with an electric power tailgate kit constructed from aluminum and stainless components. The unit can be operated either remotely or through a switch that can be installed in the cab. If you want a nice, clean look without worrying about troubling latches and chains that scratch paint, take a look at this impressive unit.
Hotter Than Helmet
You may have felt like a dork in shop class wearing goggles, but Hobart goes out of its way to make sure safety doesn't look embarrassing. The Bonehead and Hothead are two recent additions to its XVS line of auto-darkening helmets that meet ANSI Z87.1 - 2003, CSA, and CE standards. With killer graphics and lightweight, durable construction, these helmets darken in 1/12,000 of a second after arc start and feature an internally adjustable auto-darkening shade (#9-12), lens sensitivity, and delay controls, according to the manufacturer. Offered as part of a Bonus Buy package, the XVS Bonehead comes complete with a protective cloth helmet bag and headgear comfort cushion.
