Raise The Flags
Dress up your C6 Corvette with American Car Craft's new Crossed Flags Hood Panel Badge. Made from polished-and-brushed stainless steel, this multi-dimensional badge adds a stylish custom look to your engine bay. You can even light it up with ACC's available Swivel Hood Panel Light.
Designed to fit on your '05-'13 Corvette's stock hood-pad liner, the badge is officially licensed by GM. ACC can also fabricate custom underhood designs using your artwork.

Turn back the effects of time on your vintage Corvette's instrumentation by having Instrument Specialties reface its gauges. The company got the ink formulas from AC/Delco's original vendor, along with the original AC/Delco art negatives, making for unparalleled—and exclusive—historical accuracy. That's worth considering if you're going for a period-correct resto that'll impress NCRS or Bloomington Gold judges.
Instrument Specialties can also mechanically repair, rebuild, and calibrate any speedometer, tach, or gauge.

Does your wintertime Corvette project include brake work? If so, you'll want something to make reassembly go quicker and easier—like Wilwood's new Brake Assembly Lubricant.
Apply it to your Vette's brake parts to ensure smooth, bind-free piston travel while preventing piston cylinder-wall corrosion, improving the sealing function of the boots and seals, and reducing wear.
Wilwood Brake Assembly Lubricant is compatible with DOT 3, DOT 4, and DOT 5 SHF brake fluids, and it's available in your choice of a handy 4-oz. bottle (seen here) or a 12-bottle case.

With more than 2,000 forced-induction systems sold to date (and counting), A&A Superchargers is best known for producing the ultimate in 600-1,000hp Corvette blower packages for the serious performance enthusiast.
Now, A&A is pleased to announce another milestone: 50-state-legal supercharger systems for all years and models of C5 and C6 Corvette. They've received an E.O. number from California's Air Resources Board, which means your '97-'13 will pass a state smog check with flying colors—and put up big numbers on the dyno.
Like all A&A supercharger systems, these will fit under your stock hood, with no modifications needed for clearance.

Parts Cleaning Made Easy
The Eastwood Company's 20-gallon parts washer is a must-have for cleaning up those greasy, grimy original engine and chassis bits from that barn-found Vette project.
It's made of rugged, welded steel and holds up to 12 gallons of cleaning solution. The included pump circulates non-corrosive, water-based cleaner at 1 gallon per minute. Also part of the package are a removable work shelf, parts bin, and flow-through brush.
Priced less than $140, this is a tool that'll likely pay for itself the first time you use it.

You C6-owning audiophiles know it's a challenge to add big bass to your Vette's sound system. JL Audio has met that challenge with its new Stealthboxes for '05-'13 coupes and convertibles. (Note: not compatible with fixed-roof models.)
The coupe Stealthbox fits a 300-watt subwoofer in a sealed enclosure that tucks neatly into the rear corner of the hatch. The drop-top version, meanwhile, uses a pair of ultra- compact enclosures with a high- performance subwoofer setup that can handle up to 500 watts. They install neatly behind your Vette's seats and under the hard tonneau cover, without affecting convertible-top operation.
