2. Wilwood bolt-on master cylinder kit
If you’re after a brake master cylinder upgrade for your XD-XE-XF Falcon, the boys at Castlemaine Rod Shop have just whipped up this neat Wilwood bolt-on master cylinder kit. The conversion involves binning the factory booster, as there’s no way to fit the Wilwood 7/8in-bore master onto the booster without fouling the strut tower – but you won’t need it anyway. Included in the kit for your $495 is a firewall mounting spacer, pushrod, pedal connector and all the mounting hardware. You can grab one in black or polished finish by calling The Rod Shop on (03) 5472 2853, visiting rodshop.com.au.
3. Street Pro II Convo Pro wheels
It’s the age-old saying: wheels can make or break a car. The pro street look is all the hotness right now, and now Street Pro has entered the chat with its new Street Pro II Convo Pro wheels. They’re a beadlock-style deal, available in both the polished finish you see here or in gloss black. You can get them in Chev/Holden or Ford stud pattern, with sizes ranging from 15×4 to a whopping 15×10. We just bolted a pair of those mammoth 15x10s onto the back of our Carnage Barra-swapped MX-5, and to say we fell in love is an understatement. We sourced ours through VPW Australia, and you can do exactly the same on 1300 879 879, at vpw.com.au.
4. Showwheels exterior spray detailer
Keeping your pride and joy clean can be a tedious task, and there’s nothing worse than having to break out the pressure washer every time you get a bit of sap or dust on the paint. Quick spray-on detailers are the perfect way to avoid getting the wash buckets out, and the crew at Showwheels now offers its own exterior spray detailer as part of its newly launched car care range. Simply spray it onto the dirty section of the car, wipe away the gunk with a quality microfibre cloth and you’re done! It’s perfect for cleaning in between washes and getting any last bits of dirt off while you’re at a car show, as the Australian-designed transparent polymer formula dries super-clear for a ripper finish. You can grab a 500ml bottle for just $27.50 at showwheels.com.au.

6. Aussie Desert Cooler radiator combo
