WeatherShield HP Covercraft "Outsmarts The Outdoors"

Weather, both good and bad, has an effect on your vehicle. The potent summer sun’s heat and UV rays, and winters cold and damp, can damage both the interior and exterior of your vehicle. WeatherShield HP is Covercraft’s answer to both seasons, plus it repels water, blocks dust, tree sap and bird droppings, while allowing heat and moisture to escape. And, WeatherShield’s heavier thread construction provides double the tear and tensile strength of most vehicle covers, and can assist against minor paint damage! Plus it folds into a compact size for easy trunk storage and can be cleaned in most home washer/dryers.

WeatherShield HP’s eco-friendly solution-dye is fade resistant with pigment added during fiber production. These fibers are then spun into yarn, resulting in permeated color throughout the fabric, creating a consistent, lasting color. The world-wide patented Nextec encapsulation process forces specially formulated polymers inside the fabric to bond to each thread, and fill the valleys in between the woven fibers. This creates a fabric ideal for maximum performance and protection in harsh environments, and the covers glide over fine paint finishes for easy installation and removal. It’s also perfect for long-term outdoor storage. It’s available in eight solid colors or a combination of any two colors. Find out more about WeatherShield HP, and all their vehicle protection products at www.covercraft.com.

Flaming River introduces elegant “Navigator” steering wheel

Flaming River’s latest steering wheel for 2008,  the “Navigator”, is an elegant blending of three favorite wheel materials – polished aluminum, mahogany and classic leather.

The Navigator uses a contemporary version of the three-spoke design, surrounded with a combination of mahogany and Italian leather in either black (FR20163BK - shown), light gray (FR20163LG) or light tan (FR20163LT).

The wheel has a comfortable 13.8-inch diameter with a slight, 1-1/4 inch dish. The grip features a unique pairing of a leather outer edge with the wood inner half. The polished paired spokes are located with 120 degrees of separation. The horn button is included and further enhances the theme with a mahogany inlay in the hub.

The Navigator wheel requires a steering wheel adapter (FR20119TA) to mount to Flaming River columns, or to a factory GM column (FR20119OE).
