American Powertrain’s Ballistix body mounts for ’67-’81 Firebirds are far less expensive than Delrin products and will not squeak or compress like polyurethane. Constructed from CNC-machined, solid, military-grade ballistic-shock armor, they feature a unique profile that fits flush and flat around the weld seams near the mounting points on your F-body chassis. According to the manufacturer, Ballistix promises better isolation than aluminum mounts without the electrolysis issues common to aluminum, and are impervious to petroleum and water-based chemicals. Standard and drop heights are offered (standard height shown). Prices start at $99 per kit (including grade-8 mounting hardware and instructions) and include a lifetime durability warranty.

On the Road Again
The Penray Companies’ Tire Fix Plus emergency tire inflator uses proprietary technology to provide a safe and effective temporary repair for flat tires. Applied through the tire’s valve stem, the foaming sealant finds and seals the point of leakage and inflates the tire to a safe operating pressure, all in one simple operation. Tire Fix Plus also features Leak Detective, which leaves an easily identified fluorescent mark at the location where it has sealed a leak. This makes it much easier for the technician to find the leak or leaks, which are no longer hissing or blowing bubbles. It’s available in 12-, 16-, and 22-ounce cans, and is proudly engineered, produced, and packaged in the USA. The price ranges from $6.49 to $7.99.
