Made from eight 1.2-ounce, 65 percent polyester/35 percent cotton twill, they have a relaxed-fitting seat and thighs, and importantly for people like me, double knees. The leg openings are designed to fit over boots too. There’s a right-leg cell phone pocket and two back welt pockets with button closures and come in black, dark gray, khaki, and navy. Because this twill work wear is designed to be the best in its class, Carharrt even offers a guarantee. If you’re not happy, return the product within 30 days for a full refund!

Custom Mufflers

So you’ve made a nice exhaust system from polished stainless steel, and if you’re like most people, you left this part of your project until last and are now having trouble finding a pair of mufflers that will fit the confined spaces left under your car. Well, Stainless Specialties could have the solution to both these problems. Their new Mega Oval Mufflers are fabricated from 304 grade stainless, in plain or polished finish, and measure just 2 1/2 inches high and 6 1/2 inches wide. Standard length is 18 inches, but they can be made in any length.

Inside, dual, 1 3/4-inch perforated sections are wrapped with a high-temperature, sound-absorbing material that won’t burn out, the design offering excellent flow with a nice street rod sound. Inlets can be centered, offset to the same side or to the opposite side, and dual inlets or outlets are available too, with inlets available from 1 3/4 to 3 inches in diameter. For more information, contact Stainless Specialties at (423) 728-3300 or www.stainless-specialties.com.

Monochromatic Fanatic

Not everyone likes the traditional red and blue anodizing on AN hose ends and adapters, so Summit Racing Equipment has introduced its own brand of AN hose ends with a black hard-anodized finish. They are ideal for use in street-driven and race vehicles and look great when used with stainless steel braided hose or black-finish braided and smooth hose. Two types of AN ends and adapters are available. Swivel-style hose ends are reusable and can be rotated to make connections easier. The fittings are designed for use with most fuels, including alcohol and nitro methane, and are compatible with most brands of AN-type braided and smooth hose.

Twist-Tite Hose Ends are lighter and easier to use than traditional AN fittings. The NHRA-approved aluminum fittings have a socketless barb end—just slip Summit Racing’s Twist-Tite hose over the end and the connection is complete. Both types are available in straight, 45- and 90-degree configurations, and come in sizes from -4AN to -16AN. Summit also has its own brand of Braided Nylon and Twist-Tite hose in black.
