Spread ’Em

Bored with that tubular spreader bar on the front of your Deuce? Fancy something a little different, yet still traditional? Then check out this new stainless steel version by McMillan Rod & Custom.

Fabricated from solid 3/4-inch-diameter type 304 stainless, and polished to a mirror-like finish, this chin bar offers a new look, and an alternative to the usual straight or V’d spreader bar while maintaining the traditional look of a ’32. It’s also available for Model A’s by special order. For more information, contact McMillan Rod & Custom at (715) 387-6847 or www.mcmillanrodandcustom.com.

Extreme Shield

New Armor All Extreme Shield Wax is claimed to provide superior paint protection, beautiful shine, and depth of color all in a no-haze formula that simply wipes on and wipes off. This new Armor All technology helps keep cars cleaner by creating a surface coating that repels dirt and grime.

Its revolutionary polymer formula forms a protective shield against the elements and delivers extreme water beading that allows environmental elements to be washed away easily. Bugs and tree sap are easily removed, and as your car will rinse to a shiny, almost-dry surface, rinsing and drying time at future car washes is reduced. Armor All Extreme Shield Wax is available at your local auto parts store.
