Fender Finisher and HVLP Paint Gun
Eastwood has two new tools to help you build a better ride. The Evolution HVLP paint gun is a uniquely versatile piece that features a high-tech, composite ergonomic body, allowing you to paint for long periods of time without fatigue. The pneumatic fender former was developed to provide additional fender-to-tire clearance on lowered vehicles or vehicles with larger wheel sizes. The main feature of the tool is that it can perform the fender rolling without the need to jack the vehicle and remove the wheel.
Adjustable Pivot-Style Sway-Bar End Link
Universal pivot-style, adjustable-length sway bar end links that will help you get sway bar alignment perfect. No more cutting bolts and tubing to get it just right, Energy offers these in four different sizes each offering 1 inch of adjustability.
A Rack and a Column
Flaming River is well-known for its tilt columns, and it just came out with a collapsible tilt-key steering column. The unit is modeled after the popular OEM muscle-car design and includes tilt and an integrated GM ignition key built directly into the column at the three-o'clock position. For the autocross crowd, the company created the road-race power rack-and-pinion. It features a quick ratio and an adjustable positive-lock rack gear that will not back away from the pinion.
Flaming River Industries Inc.
Flex-a-lite has two new products to keep the fifth-gen F-car cool, the Flex-a-fit radiator and electric fan combination and the direct-fit automatic transmission cooler for 2010-2011 V-8 Camaros. The radiator offers three times more cooling surface and twice the core thickness compared to the stock radiator for significantly better cooling. The transmission cooler is a direct-fit kit specific for these cars, including a bracket system, fittings, hose, and hardware needed for a clean installation.
Bolt-On Rear Coilover Kit, '58-64 Impalas

Rear coilover suspension provides adjustable ride height and most importantly, a wide selection of springs for fine-tuning.

Hawk Performance Wheel
Hawk Performance, known for its great brake pads and rotors, is getting into the rim market with the Merlin-series, multipiece forged-aluminum wheels. Info on sizing is still unavailable, but we know these are going to be three-piece forged aluminum rims with the classic muscle car in mind.
LS Swap Kit and Two-Piece Timing Cover
The Hedman Performance Group had two LS-based offerings at the show. There was the Hedman Husler's bolt-in LS engine-swap kit with headers for '62-67 Novas with 4L60E or T56 transmission. This kit gives you all the matching components needed to properly fit an LS drivetrain into the little Nova. From the Hamburger's line there was the billet aluminum two-piece timing cover for LS1/LS6 and Gen III engines. It has an O-ring seal for single or Comp Cams double roller chain and allows you to switch your camshaft without removing your oil pan and crank pulley.

Camaro Coilovers and Shocks
Bilstein had the Camaro platform in its sights and came out with a set of fifth-gen adjustable coilovers and first-gen Camaro drag race shocks. The coilovers are a ride-height damping-adjustable kit that is designed to lower vehicles 30 mm to 50 mm and feature 10-stage precise compression and rebound settings. They are made to bolt right in, and front and rear sets are available. The drag shocks have monotube construction with a self-adjusting piston that offers great performance out of an economical, stock-mount shock.

Bullet Proof Brake Booster Hose
Hose Candy, maker of high-end vacuum hose kits, has created the Bullet Proof Brake Booster Hose. The affordable kit lets you make something usually overlooked into something nice-looking that will last.
Fifth-Gen and G-Body Suspension
Hotchkis Performance had a bunch of cool stuff at SEMA, but the best in our mind was the 2011 Camaro convertible Race Pack TVS kit and the '78-88 GM A/G Body tubular control arms. The Race Pack system is designed to improve handling and performance on the latest droptop by replacing the springs, sway bars, and end links and adding chassis and strut braces. The company also added a killer set of geometry-corrected, tubular upper and lower A-arms for the G-body platform.
