Hopkinsville, Kentucky U.S.A. September 30, 2015—
Bed Wood and Parts, LLC, the #1 source of show quality, custom manufactured, wooden truck bed parts and accessories, is excited to announce it received a United States Patent for the Tailgate Butcher Block.
March 2016 marks PML’s 30th year in business and this November is PML’s 15th SEMA Show. David Tolin founded PML in Inglewood, California, with a love of automobiles and a mission to provide high quality parts to the aftermarket.
Reflecting on these milestones, David remarks, “SEMA promotes the industry and brings people together. The best part of the show has always been interacting with customers, old and new. That never changes.”
PML will be in Booth 24425 at the 2015 SEMA Show.
PML specializes in cool designs and products that keep vehicle fluids cool. All PML products are sand cast aluminum. Aluminum draws heat out of the oil. Heavy duty construction adds strength. Valve covers must look great in addition to clearing roller rockers and maintaining a leak-free seal on the cylinder head.
“Alpine stated it correctly at CES last year when they announced that the future of mobile electronics is vehicle specific, not universal. Race Sport Lighting couldn’t agree more and as we stay committed to our technology always leading the lighting industry, we have many vehicle specific solutions coming out this year.” Said Henry Jasper from Race Sport Lighting
Race Sport’s new “Nuclear Blacked Out” All-In-One LED Light Bar Kits include LED light bar, vehicle specific mounting brackets, protection locks, legal compliance covers, and heavy duty harness. They offer kits for Chevy, Ford, Nissan and Toyota trucks.
TRIMAX, a division of Wyers Products Group, Inc., will be displaying the newest innovative solutions to our customers security needs at the SEMA show booth #33169.
A new PML heavy duty differential cover makes servicing the front axle of Ram 1500 trucks simple and fast.
Regular servicing keeps the oil fresh, maintaining lubrication of the gears. A well-lubricated differential works better and lasts longer. To service the front axle, the stock cover needs to be removed, a difficult task with the nimblest of fingers. The new PML cover features drain and fill holes, both easily accessed, for quick and easy servicing without removing the cover.
PML designed the cover in response to demand from Ram 1500 truck owners who were towing and hauling and needed to frequently service their differentials. Working with several truck owners to design the cover, PML maintained a low profile to clear the steering and suspension components. One early customer reported, “I got the front differential cover installed today and I'm really happy with the design.”
Some models of Dakota trucks and Durango SUVs can also use this cover.
Melbourne-based electric vehicle technology company EVX will be releasing the world’s first solar sports car, the Immortus. In the process of doing this new technologies that make the full electrification or hybridization of custom cars easier has been developed and opened new opportunities for custom car builders.
The Immortus – a car that takes the technology of current solar racers (from the World Solar Challenge) that currently race across contents around the world at the edge of legal speed limits and brings it to a street legal sports car. Such a car is independent of energy supply infrastructure, and positioned in the market for buyers looking for a unique vehicle.
Because the Immortus itself is so unique, it has opened up numerous opportunities in the custom car industry.
NorthStar Battery (www.northstarbattery.com) has unveiled the new SMS-AGM480 and SMS-AGM80 products to celebrate four new world records set at the United States Autosound Competition International (USACI) Texas Heatwave event held earlier this year.

(October 21, 2015 - Peoria, AZ) Taking design inspiration from WW2 bombers and fighters, the 2015 Toyota Tundra Crew Max designed by ICI’s head engineer Mark Osiwany, aims to elevate the game at this year’s SEMA show.

“They did it to show it was their plane, their crew and painting their jackets with the same art showed they were a team. It gave them an identity and it was something they could do to colour their lives – it was a great morale booster. It was frowned upon by the top brass as it broke all the rules, but they tolerated it. You could say some of it was a bit saucy.”- Ron Batley, museum curator of the 100th Bomb Group Memorial Museum
