Deco Display

DC Street Rods has introduced a new version of their patented Deco Gauge Cluster designed to fit 1948 to 1950 Ford trucks. The CNC milled housing will accommodate most of the popular five-gauge sets with a 318-inch or 338-inch speedometer and it is a direct replacement for the original gauge assembly. With the addition of the 1948 to 1950 design, DC Street Rods now offers Deco Gauge Clusters for 1940 through 1950 Ford trucks. The Deco Gauge Cluster is available as a custom-built unit with gauges and senders, or as a build-it-yourself kit.

It’s Magic

RPM stands for Rust Prevention Magic. This new wax-like product is easy to apply and will protect bare metal from rusting. It will not reverse rust or remove it, so you need to sandblast or glass bead any rusty parts clean first. Apply it by heating the clean part up to 120-degrees using a hair blow dryer or heat gun and then brush the RPM on with a clean paintbrush. The substance melts as it is brushed onto the hot part and gets into the pores of the metal and prevents rust from forming.Wipe the excess RPM off with a towel and let it cool to room temperature and dry to an invisible barrier that prevents rust from forming.No longer do you have to paint bare cast parts to protect them!
