When you do a frame-off restoration, you leave no bolt unturned or section of the car untouched. This was the case for Project FearleSS after going as far we have, there was no turning back and no way that we would take a chance for our car to catch on fire because of old wiring or faulty terminals.

We were planning on having our '68 Impala wired but we weren't sure exactly what would be the best option to make it happen. After talking to our friends at American Autowire, we realized that they had just developed a new kit for our year Impala that would be perfect for our needs. American Autowire is no stranger to the automotive industry or Impalas, for that matter, as they have been developing kits for years. This classic update kit gives you modern fuses and heavy-duty gauge wiring that will handle the modern technology currently being retrofitted into these classics.

When rewiring a car, you should have all of the parts that you plan on using bolted on or with you, as you only want to do this once and you don't want to miss a step. In our case, everything from our Dakota Digital gauges to our ididit column needed to be wired up to the new electrical kit. Now, let us show you how the pro electricians at EG Auto Electric of Bell Gardens, California, wired up Project FearleSS.


Axalta Coating Systems

It's that time of the season for all painters and Lowrider magazine enthusiasts to learn more about when, where, and how to use the right paint materials and spraying equipment for the right environment.

The first thing to learn from this Axalta Coating Systems painting tip is that a painter must take control of their painting surroundings and conditions when using either Waterborne paint and or Solvent. Weather the material may be clear coats, primers, or sealers, there are many things that painters can and have to control. We call this "slowing down to speed up." This process simply means that it is always best to take the time and read the cans label instructions first before propping open the lid to pour. Remember painters when the weather changes so should your spray guns tip sizes, your hardeners, reducers and temperature of the booth for the environment that you are in. This should ensure a consistent finish all year and season round.
