RockSolid Floors’ new Grey Garage Coat offers several benefits over epoxy, vinyl flooring, and even traditional polyurea. As a one-part polyurea product, it has a virtually unlimited pot-life, allowing installers as much time as they wish to finish their flooring projects with no waste. Garage Coat is 20 times more durable and 98 percent more flexible than epoxy floor paints, ensuring that it won’t crack or peel, while being resistant to salt, oil, gas, and other harsh chemicals. Its ultralow VOCs make it environmentally friendly, too.
Its unique composition allows it to retain polyurea’s usual four- to eight-hour cure rate and 24-hour return to service when applied, despite its unlimited pot-life. Self-leveling and able to be installed in temperatures from 0 to 120 degrees, it is supplied with a DVD and instruction booklet, as well as Citric Etch, decorative chip, and specially designed foam roller. For additional gloss and protection, the RockSolid Polyurea Diamond Coat can be used as a topcoat. For more information, contact Garage Coat at www.rocksolidfloors.com.
Kugel Komponents offers new, increased capacity remote fill reservoirs manufactured from billet aluminum and available in a single, double, or triple option. Each original reservoir held 1 1/4 ounces of fluid. The new version has more than double the capacity and now holds 2 3/4 ounces of fluid. The reservoirs have threaded outlets on both the back and bottom and can be mounted anywhere above the master cylinder. You no longer need to remove carpets or get under the vehicle to get to the master cylinder, making it a cinch to check brake/clutch fluid levels.
Four 1/4x20 threaded holes facilitate mounting the reservoirs, featuring new improved twist-on caps, vapor barrier with seal, stainless steel mounting hardware, and are available in plain or polished finish. Remote fill caps for Corvette master cylinders are also available. For more information, contact Kugel Komponents at (562) 691-7006 or www.kugelkomponents.com.

Control Cables’ new floor-mounted throttle pedal is constructed from strong, billet aluminum. It eliminates having to route cables through the firewall by utilizing an under the floor cable mounting bracket, helping maintain a clean, uncluttered firewall. The pedal is approximately 6 inches long, has a 2-inch-wide base that tapers to 1 3/4 inches at the top.
The pedal features a non-slip rubber pad, comes in choices of black anodized finish or brushed aluminum, and is supplied complete with all mounting hardware for easy installation. Also shown is the optional billet aluminum brake pad. For more information, contact Control Cables at (562) 949-0455 or www.controlcables.com.
Life Begins At 40
Juliano’s original ’40 steering column has evolved into this second-generation unit with a re-designed shift lever mechanism and its internal parts more closely modeled after an original ’40 column and shifter assembly. The new-gen ’40 column features a spring-loaded shift mechanism with a fulcrum point that provides a mechanical advantage as you move the gear selector up and down, giving the shifter the same feel as one on a late-model car.
The new columns are also made with steel components that are chrome-plated or can be painted, unlike polished aluminum, which requires maintenance to retain its appearance. For more information, contact Juliano’s at (860) 872-1932 or www.julianos.com.
