The Southeast Stop is east of the Performance Pavilion. Both stops are in the

same locations as last year’s SEMA Show.

Monorail: The Las Vegas Monorail is great for those staying at a hotel

a free shuttle service runs every 20–30 minutes to and from select partner

hotels. Shuttles stop at three locations—The Westgate Las Vegas Resort &

Casino hotel, North Hall Door 10 and the east end of the Performance Pavilion—and

each hotel has a designated pick-up/drop-off location.

Ride-Sharing Services: Show organizers are working with

Uber and Lyft to make using these ride-sharing services simple and efficient.

QA1 Celebrates 25 Years

Lakeville, Minnesota-based QA1,

an industry leader in high-performance

suspension and driveline, celebrates

its 25th anniversary in 2018.

QA1 was founded by Jim Jordan

to introduce rod ends and spherical

bearings for the performance racing

industry. The vision for QA1 was

incorporated into its very name as

“quality and affordability are No. 1.”

Since its inception, QA1 has grown

into an advanced-technology engineering

and manufacturing company

producing performance shocks, fabricated

suspension components, carbon-fiber

driveshafts and more.

With the purchase of Hal Shocks

in 1998, QA1 began manufacturing

shock absorbers for drag racing, and

in 1999 it introduced racer re-valveable

and rebuildable shocks for circle

track racing, saving racers time and

JE Pistons to Unveil

“Masters of Motors”

Competition

The checkered flag waves at the end

of the race, but it didn’t begin there.

From torque wrench to testing, every

ounce of ingenuity and engineering

contributes to a first-place finish. JE

Pistons, a premier performance piston

manufacturer, knows well the dedication

building an engine requires.

Beginning at the 2018 SEMA Show

and 2018 PRI Trade Show, JE Pistons

will recognize engine builders’ hard

work, creativity and commitment to

combustion with its new competition

dubbed “Masters of Motors.”

The competition will pit the top

engines of each Show against each

other on the grounds of creativity,

style, engineering and several different

facets, and reward victors with

the coveted billet Masters of Motors

Trophy along with other prizes.

A panel of industry-icon judges

will present trophies to winners in

multiple engine classes at the JE Pistons

booth. For more information on

this exciting new competition, visit

www.jepistons.com/mastersofmotors.

money. Over the next six years, QA1

fine-tuned and expanded its product

offerings with shocks and struts for

street performance and circle track.

QA1 purchased Carrera Shocks in

2004, making QA1 one of the leading

manufacturers of performance racing

shocks. In 2011, QA1 acquired

Edelbrock’s suspension line and CAP

Auto Products, expanding its line of

fabricated suspension components.

QA1 then expanded into the driveline

market, offering in-house filament

winding of carbon-fiber driveshafts.

Now with more than 83,000 sq. ft.

of space and state-of-the-art equipment

that includes a complete line

of CNC machines, hydraulic presses,

filament winding and laser-cutting

equipment, QA1 is continually evolving

and innovating.

Visit QA1 in Booth #21457.

J.W. Winco Offers

Latches With Safety

Function

J.W. Winco Inc. debuts its line of GN

115.9 latches featuring zinc die casting.

Available in three different types

and options, these RoHS-compliant

latches have a push-to-turn safety

function. In the two end positions, the

lock secures the spindle in place.

The device can be turned 90

degrees only when the operating element

is pressed down, which releases

the safety pin from the locked position.

This is designed to protect the

lock from moving on its own or

from vibration.

The lock’s beveled edges ensure that

closing the door is easy. The 15 different

offsets allow the latch Distance A

to be set between 4 and 32 mm.

STEALTH POWER STEPS

EXTENDED

RETRACTED

RBP Stealth Power Running Boards are the Epitome of Rugged Luxury

Imagine a beautiful, spacious, illuminated running board that appears each

time you open your door, and disappears stealthily when the door’s closed.

Stealth Power Running Boards are electric in every sense of the

word, welcoming you into the vehicle’s cabin with a generous, welllit

platform, then automatically tucking compactly away to blend in

with the rocker panel.

Crafted from military-grade aluminum that’s been textured, ribbed and black

powder coated for added durability, maximum traction and cleanability, Stealth Power

feature two motor assemblies per side to ensure smooth, even mechanics even in sweltering, gritty, sandy, or freezing, salty,

slushy conditions. Illumination is provided by high-quality, bright, water and dust resistant LEDs with a very

long lifespan.

Precision engineered in the USA, Stealth Power Running Boards are designed to minimize impact on ground clearance

and feature built-in resistance sensors to stop the progress of the steps if an obstruction is detected, preventing injury to

your precious passengers.

Stealth Power Running Boards by RBP may add a touch of luxury but they’re built every bit as rugged as your truck.

BE ROGUE.

BE BOLD.

BE PROUD.

Electronics Industry Opportunity Begins

With Forward-Collision Warning

By Mike Imlay

Although still in its infancy, the

U.S. aftermarket for advanced driver

assistance systems (ADAS) and connected

vehicle technologies (CVT)

can be expected to grow into a $1.5

billion industry within the next five

years, according to SEMA research.

Forward-collision warning/avoidance

(FCW) systems have the ability

to reduce vehicle accidents and

their resulting injuries and fatalities

significantly, especially when separate

systems are used together to

improve the safety and ADAS functionality

of a vehicle. These systems

can be divided into two categories:

passive and active. There are three

basic types of systems within the

passive category. Going from lower

to higher levels of functionality,

they are:

• FCW, Camera Only: The most

basic form of the technology, this

has the highest aftermarket adop-

tion rate due to the ease of installation.

Cameras are used to detect

objects in front of a vehicle to

warn the driver of an impending

accident.

HaulGauge Delivers Weight, Payload, Tongue

Weight and More to Your Smartphone

HaulGauge, a company specializing in measurement devices for towing, is

proud to announce their new Bluetooth HaulGauge. The new version of the

HaulGauge is simple and easy to use: the connector plugs into the OBD-II

port and allows the user to read various key measurements

from the convenience of a smart phone. Along with

measuring GCW (gross combined weight), HaulGauge

also measures Tongue Weight, Payload, Pin Weight and

Weight Distribution. With the HaulGauge,

drivers can now quickly and easily

read live measurements on the app

without even having to get out of

the car, providing peace of mind

and helpful information to drivers at

great convenience

Forward-collision avoidance technologies are credited with a historic reduction in rearend

accidents and are a fast-growing niche in the aftermarket safety performance category.




• FCW, Camera and Radar: Radar

assists the system in detecting

objects or other vehicles in a car’s

path in variable weather conditions

that can “blind” other systems.

• FCW, Camera and Lidar: Lidar

(light detection and ranging)

measures the distance to a target

using a pulsed laser to light

up the object ahead and measure

the distance using onboard sensors.

Lidar systems combined with

camera systems recognize lane

markings and detect other objects

or vehicles.

Beyond those, the most advanced

levels of functionality can be found

in the active category, where FCW

is combined with automatic emergency

braking (AEB). FCW/AEB systems

deliver the highest rated safety

because the vehicle is able to stop

itself if the driver is unable to react

in time. The most advanced AEB systems

can also take over the throttle,

brakes and/or steering when faced

with an imminent collision.

In general, FCW systems saw limited

integration into vehicles from

the early ’00s, with large-scale market

Continued on page 14

Electronics Industry Opportunity Begins With Forward-Collision Warning, continued from page 13

penetration beginning around 2011.

We should again emphasize that,

unlike active FCW/AEB systems,

passive systems merely alert drivers

to impending danger. In active

systems, multiple types of AEB technologies

are combined with FCW,

such as dynamic brake support and

crash-imminent braking.

Dynamic brake support activates

when a driver has not applied the

brakes hard enough to avoid a collision,

automatically increasing braking

to assist in lessening an accident’s

severity. Crash-imminent braking

systems activate when a driver is not

able to apply the brakes at all, automatically

braking in an effort to avoid

or reduce speed at impact. Available

since the mid-’00s, these active systems

have been tremendous advances

in consumer safety.

Adoption, Drivers

and Barriers

Forward-collision avoidance systems

are playing an ever-greater role

in OEM vehicle offerings. In fact,

research credits them with a historic

10%–15% reduction in rearend-type

accidents—and an injury-reduction

rate of 15%–20%. Research has also

shown that pairing AEB systems with

FCW can cut rearend accidents by as

much as 50%.

Even when accidents can’t be

avoided, these systems nevertheless

can reduce the severity of collisions

and bodily-injury claims by

approximately 30%. Adoption of

these systems has therefore accelerated

recently, with the National Highway

Traffic Safety Administration,

the Insurance Institute for Highway

Safety and major automakers agreeing

to standardize these technologies

on every vehicle by 2020. That said,

there are still as many as 230 million

vehicles on the road that could potentially

use aftermarket solutions.

Increased adoption of FCW systems

at the OEM level is expected

to continue to dramatically decrease

accidents as time goes on. These systems

are most effective when combined

with multiple technologies to

assist drivers who may be distracted

or slow to react to potential collisions

on their own. For the aftermarket, one

of the main challenges in the adoption

of these systems are the false positive

or negative readings they have been

known to give, which can discourage

drivers from using them.

Opportunity Report Study - 2017

Despite an approximate 20% installation rate of forward-collision avoidance systems at the OEM level, these systems

are installed on only 2%–3% of the total vehicles in operation; however, these systems will be standard on all new

vehicles produced by 2022.

• Forecasted increase in demand at the aftermarket level is due to lower system costs and a perception of greater need for safety

systems on older vehicles.

– Forward-collision systems cost on average about $800 in aftermarket; market participants have noted increased costs at the

OEM level for these systems, as they are often bundled with AEB systems to meet the 2022 standardization for approximately

$2,500.

• Forward-collision systems often can be installed by the end user, and many systems will have additional functionality bundled, such

as lane departure and other camera-based systems.

Supplier Landscape

Market share for aftermarket FCW

systems is currently maintained by a

few leading suppliers, with secondary

participants accounting for a relatively

limited presence. BrandMotion

(Booth #11633), in particular, offers

an ADAS system featuring not only

FCW but also lane-departure warning,

integrated camera and other similar

technologies. In addition, there

are a variety of aftermarket ADAS

suppliers working toward eventually

providing fully autonomous aftermarket

systems.

Secondary participants often bring

additional options to market with

lower price points, but those systems

sometimes lack the functionality and/

or durability of brand leaders.

Aftermarket Penetration

Despite the approximately 20%

installation rate at the OEM level,

only 2%–3% of total vehicles in

operation currently have FCW systems

installed. However, such equipment

will be standard on all new

vehicles produced by 2022. Meanwhile,

aftermarket sales of FCW

units are expected to climb alongside

growing consumer safety awareness

and demand for lower-cost

alternatives.

Aftermarket FCW systems presently

cost an average of $800. By contrast,

market participants have noted

increased costs at the OEM level at

approximately $2,500, with systems

often bundled with AEB to meet the

2022 standardization target. An aftermarket

selling point for FCW systems

is that end users can often install them

and they can be bundled with other

technologies, such as lane-departure

alerts and various camera-based

features. (See chart: “Forward-Collision

Avoidance Systems: Aftermarket

Penetration”.)

Summing Up the Data

FCW systems are already proving

their safety potential and cutting accidents

on the highways, and OEMs

have stepped up deployment of these

systems. In short, FCW and other

ADAS technologies are here to stay

and will soon impact every segment

of the aftermarket. Now is the time to

evaluate your business readiness for

this technological revolution.

For additional information about

ADAS technologies and how they

may impact your business, attend

sessions at the SEMA Show. Register

NEW PRODUCTS PREVIEW

Directed Brings Additional DS4

Products to Clifford, AstroStart and

Autostart Brands

Directed announced

further expansion of its

DS4 product ecosystem.

The DS4, a relay-less version

of Directed’s popular

DS4+, has launched

in Clifford, AstroStart

and Autostart brands.

DS4 had been previously

introduced in the Viper and Automate brands.

The DS4 is ideal for the majority of modern vehicles, which rarely require

the integrated remote-start relays of the DS4+, saving dealers and consumers

the added expense. The DS4 is a more compact package, with the main

module 42% smaller than the DS4+.

Directed says the DS4 technology offers advantages for dealers and consumers.

For dealers it means a flagship product that is easier and quicker

to install thanks to onboard Bluetooth capability, the Directlink app and

Directed’s assortment of vehicle platform T-Harnesses. It also means easier

inventory management. For consumers, DS4 offers “Driveway Range” Bluetooth

control.

HRIA Booth to Display Top Cars

By Katie Carson

Some of the nation’s most outstanding cars are unveiled every SEMA Show at the HRIA booth in Central Hall. This year, Dutchboy’s ’69

Camaro is scheduled to be unveiled at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 30. Shown is Troy Gudgel with a ’69 Charger, which was revealed in

2017 and built at BBT Fabrications of Mahomet, Illinois.

The Hot Rod Industry Alliance

(HRIA) will have a large presence

at the SEMA Show with its iconic

booth and industry awards reception.

HRIA members are encouraged to

take advantage of being at the same

place at the same time and enjoy

some quality networking and recognition

opportunities as well as see some

really cool hot rods.

You can always catch HRIA members

and select-committee members

in the HRIA booth, located in Hot

Rod Alley in Central Hall, booth

#23395. HRIA and the Automotive

Restoration Market Organization

(ARMO) have historically shared one

large booth space, allowing collaboration

between the two councils.

HRIA and ARMO have separate

initiatives and programs, but their

overall goals are typically in alignment,

and members benefit from networking

with one another. The booth

is commonly referred to as Central

Park, because it is always buzzing and

has nice sitting areas to rest your feet

and meet other council members.

Three vehicles will be displayed

in the HRIA booth, such as Dutchboy’s

killer ’69 Camaro, which will

be unveiled Tuesday, October 30, at

11:00 a.m. Another six will be featured

at the HRIA industry reception

(with one as an alternate). The three

HRIA display vehicles are from builders

who were selected from the HRIA

feature vehicle program, which highlights

young up-and-coming builders

in the industry. The program provides

exposure for 10 hot-rod builders

to thousands of potential partners

and buyers. HRIA feature vehicles

have historically taken home awards

such as the Mother’s Shine Award,

the Ford Best in Show, the Gran Turismo

Award, the GM Design Award

and more.

HRIA Builder’s Panel

On Thursday, November 1, from

11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m., come to room

N258 in the North Hall of the Las

Vegas Convention Center for an

interactive panel discussion with

well-established hot-rod builders and

shop owners as they go through their

best practices in customer relations,

business operations and building tips,

tricks and stories. Moderated by Rick

Love of Vintage Air and includes panelists

Troy Trepanier, Bobby Alloway

BATTLE OF THE BUILDERS PREVIEW

Dave Salvaggio, ’70 Dodge

Charger “Evolution”

Meguiar’s, Booth #23643

This build from SpeedKore is a ’70 Dodge Charger named “Evolution.”

Quite notably, the entire body is constructed from 100%-prepreg, aerospacegrade

carbon fiber, molded to maintain the original lines of the vehicle. This

body sits on a 2x3-in. box frame, designed and fabricated in-house along with

the 14-point rollcage. While much of the vehicle was custom designed and

manufactured in-house by SpeedKore, they have also included parts from

other suppliers, including a Dodge Demon engine and Demon Tremec 6060

six-speed transmission with a Bad Boyz Garage triple-disc clutch and carbonfiber

driveshaft from FCA. Inside the car, the Recaro seats have been reupholstered

with Italian leather. That same leather has been used to trim the interior

by Gabe’s Custom Interiors.

Darin Smith, ’64 Chevy C10 Fleetside Short Bed

POR-15, Booth #24197

This ’64 custom Chevy truck has a distinctive patina finish. It was designed by previous Battle

of the Builders competitor Darin Smith and the team at DWSClassics in Huntington Beach, California.

Based on a stock frame with CPP suspension and disc brakes at all four corners, all of the

chassis and many other components of this vehicle are finished with POR-15 finishes. This truck

takes a retro-modern angle with a wood-finished bed and an interior finished with custom carpet

from Rodeo Carpet. The interior upholstery is from Bill Dunn Upholstery.

Vintage Air Introduces Low-Profile LS Front Runner System

Vintage Air has announced the release of its new Low-

Profile Front Runner system for LS engines with aftermarket

or custom intake manifolds that utilize large-diameter

throttle bodies.

The modern Chevrolet small-block V8 engine, most commonly

known as the LS series, has been a staple within the

GM lineup for more than two decades. Thanks to the engine’s

ease of modification and ability to be stuffed into just about

any vehicle ever made, it has become one of the most popular

engine platforms among performance enthusiasts. In response

to the increasing demand for an LS accessory belt system with “extra clearance” to accommodate aftermarket

intake manifolds and large-bore throttle bodies, Vintage Air has designed and introduced its new Low-Profile

Front Runner system.

These new low-profile kits are machined from the same high-strength 6061-T6 billet aluminum used on all

Vintage Air Front Runner kits. The kit features a redesigned main truss-bracket that provides the additional

space required to run an aftermarket intake manifold and larger throttle body. The system also includes a new

Edelbrock water pump with replaceable impeller cartridge and threaded heater hose outlets.

The system is available in four different finishes—bright, bright and chrome, black, and black and chrome. The

bright finish (PN 174027) features a machine-finished bracket with polished compressor and alternator, chrome

pulleys, and polished clutch and tensioner covers. The bright and chrome finish (PN 174028) adds a chrome

compressor, alternator and clutch and tensioner covers. The black finish (PN 174029) features a black anodized

bracket with natural-finish compressor and alternator, black hardcoat pulleys, and black anodized clutch and

tensioner covers while the black and chrome option (PN 172030) adds a chrome compressor and alternator.

Vintage Air Front Runner systems are proudly manufactured in the U.S.A., include parts necessary for installation,

and are backed by its standard warranty.

Home

In my time serving

on the board of the

Society of Collision Repair Specialists

(SCRS), I’ve had the pleasure of

watching the collision-repair industry

blossom at the SEMA Show. I’ve

had a front-row seat as our crucial

segment in the automotive aftermarket

found its home in the North

Hall of the tradeshow floors, and as

the programs, support and deliverables

for attendees found root and

flourished.

There is nowhere the collisionrepair

industry can find greater

advantages or opportunities than

through the Repairer Driven Education

Don’t Miss the IDEAS Collide Showcase!

For those still coordinating travel

arrangements for the 2018 SEMA

Show, you’re going to want to make

sure you budget plenty of time for

Friday events.

In addition to great Friday mainstays

such as SEMA Ignited, the Society

of Collision Repair Specialists

(SCRS) has announced the launch of

the IDEAS Collide Showcase, which

is quickly becoming one of the most

anticipated events in the collision

industry.

The IDEAS Collide Showcase will

highlight visionary disruption and

solution in the collision repair industry,

and serves as the newest extension

of the association’s ever-evolving

Repairer Driven Education series.

The two-hour-long session will run

from 10:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. on Friday,

November 2, and will feature

10 fast-paced presentations designed

to stimulate thought, innovation and

resolution of business challenges with

brash, outspoken and thought-provoking

concepts from thought leaders

both in and out of the industry.

Meet and hear from captivating

individuals, concept-driven startups

and tenured companies with an eye

on the future—all of whom will take

center stage and present innovative

ideas, business models and concepts

that have the potential to revolutionize

the future of the collision repair

industry.

“The concept behind the event

was developed with an emphasis on

breaking away from how we believe

the industry needs to operate, and

exploring concepts and business solutions

that have the potential to create

real paradigm shifts in the businesses

we serve,” said Brett Bailey, vice chairman

of SCRS.

The presentation subject matter will

focus on either industry disruption or

industry solution:

• Industry disruption will rattle the

status quo with ambitious ideas that

have a transformative effect on the

industry. From conceptual alternatives

to existing business models,

technological advancements that will

shake up the automotive aftermarket

landscape, to changing the consumer

expectation of what is possible, this

segment is certain to leave heads

spinning with possibility.

• Industry solutions would offer conceptual

keys to resolving existing

market challenges, business consid-

erations, resources and

solutions that stem from,

or can be implemented

by, great minds within the

industry.

“We’ve really put an

emphasis in our Repairer

Driven Education sessions

on being practical,

tangible solutions to

bettering your business,”

said Aaron Schulenburg,

SCRS executive director.

“The IDEAS Collide

Showcase is really poised

to counter that by also celebrating

thinking that breaks past the practical

and explores what could be. We

sought dreamers, idealists, big thinkers

and people with a passion for promoting

change for the better within

the industry. Not every idea may resonate,

but they should all make you

think and inspire the audience to

consider what could be in the future

state of our industry.”

Those interested in securing

seats in the inaugural event can

do so in advance of the Show at

Not Your Average Road Test

By Mitch Becker

Some vehicles today may require a

dynamic road test after a post-scan to

calibrate cameras and sensors, which

is a far cry from the road tests old.

When I visit shops to do training

or help answer questions, I like to

ask how they’re doing certain procedures.

The reason I do this is so

I can learn about any new ideas or

solutions to ever-changing procedures

in our industry. The surprising

fact is how many shops don’t

know what procedures I’m talking

about. This really resonates with

me as a trainer. I strongly desire

for every person to know everything

needed to be done for every

procedure, but the problem is there

is so much to know. I can tell collision

repairers to look up procedures

on websites or use I-CAR or

ALLDATA, but there are so many

changes to keep up with.

That is the reality we’re all facing.

Technology is taking us all in directions

we never dreamed of, much

less prepared for. The technology

improvements in computers and

sensors has brought us to a major

crossroads as an industry. Scan tools

and recalibration tools are a major

change to all of us. I know we’ve had

scan tools for years, but now the

depth to which we need to access

the vehicle’s electronics is unprecedented

for the collision industry.

The mechanical repair side of the

industry has much more experience

with this kind of repair. The issue is

that the requirements for electronics

today go much further than many

of us are accustomed to or comfortable

with.

Scanning

We’ve been talking about pre-repair

scans and post-repair scans on

today’s vehicles. With advanced electronics,

these scans become necessary

procedures to evaluate what is

damaged or has set diagnostic trouble

codes (DTCs), commonly called

codes or faults. These DTCs can be

set at any time in a vehicle’s life and

are the result of hiccups in the operation

of either computers or their

connections or even the computer

codes originally used from the factory.

Many of these codes may be set

from minor communication glitches

to a failure of a component. Unless

the fault or code involves a major

failure to critical components, the

dashlight will not activate. This leads

to the statement, “Just because there

is no light does not mean it’s right.”

These codes may just sit in the computer’s

memory waiting for someone

to notice them.

When these codes are created is

a critical factor to consider when

repairing a vehicle. Codes not crashrelated

need to be singled out. Those

that are crash-related need to be

repaired correctly. So many systems

are tied together and may share

components, so if one component

is damaged, multiple systems may

have codes.

11SE_18BSMartin1Pre 8/6/18 8:29 AM Page 1

The white square is a blind-spot detection sensor on a ’17 Hyundai.

A New Twist

With all of these components, testing

for problems takes on a new

twist. In the old days, a road test was

always done to see how the vehicle

handled. We listened for squeaks,

rattles and pops. We also checked to

Not Your Average Road Test, continued from page 32

make sure the vehicle stayed straight

on the road. Electronics in today’s

vehicles now require a great deal

more “testing” to verify operation

parameters. Radars and cameras

have changed the scope of what we

must test. In many cases, sensors and

cameras must be aligned correctly to

the vehicle.

Static testing is done in shop with

targets being placed at specific points

for radar systems in blind spot detection

systems or, in the case of forward

crash warning, target boards

are placed in front of the vehicle to

align cameras with the vehicle. When

a vehicle is stationary, the environment

around the computers and sensors

that could possibly affect them is

not changing.

Once aligned, sensors and cameras

must see correctly and be tested.

Dynamic testing is designed to do

that. When in motion, the environment

and parameters change.

Sensors must be able to work in both

static and dynamic scenarios. The

other factor is that vibration and

shocks can change the parameters,

too. Not testing the system under,

for lack of a better term, “stress,” can

lead to problems later. This is why

codes can be set at any time, and

11SE_18BSSCOCHE1Pre 8/15/18 8:43 AM Page 1

When you have systems such as adaptive cruise control, emergency automatic braking, lane departure and crash avoidance systems, you

have to look up procedures to see what will be required.

knowing when and why the code set

is important information.

Wikipedia defines dynamic testing

(or dynamic analysis) as a term used

in software engineering to describe

the testing of the dynamic behavior

of code. That is, dynamic analysis

refers to the examination of the

physical response from the system

to variables that are not constant and

change with time.

Post-Repair Scan

So now we have to take a look at

a post-repair scan of vehicles. Do

we scan before a road test or after?

Maybe both? We know codes will

be set from the repair process. Many

times, just disconnecting the battery

will set a DTC. During a post-repair

scan, we can remove all DTCs after

we record them and match to the

pre-repair scan.

Continued on page 36

34 SEMA Show Daily | #SEMA2018


#SEMA2018 | SEMA Show Daily 35


Not Your Average Road Test, continued from page 34

Once DTCs are cleared, we’re set,

right? Maybe not. We need to test

that the repairs are correct or that

no other codes will be set while

driving. During a test drive, we may

need to drive the vehicle much more

than around the block. Some systems

will not achieve testing parameters

until certain speeds or even certain

distance requirements are met. In

the case of recalibrations of cameras,

speed and a specific number

of required indicators must be met.

Signs, lines in the road, etc., all may

be a part of the dynamic test. Since

there are variables such as light and

weather conditions that can affect the

sensors detecting required objects,

the dynamic test while driving is

required to ensure that the sensors

do work under all conditions.

No More Average

Road Tests

So we now know the road test is

not just a drive around the block and

that there is much more involved.

This brings up a whole new group of

factors for shops.

I want to be sure to clarify that

some vehicles will require a simple

road test and post-repair scan. Some

may require more. When you have

systems such as adaptive cruise control,

emergency automatic braking,

lane departure and crash avoidance

systems, you have to look up procedures

to see what will be required. In

the process of dynamic testing, here

are some interesting thoughts.

Time

The time required for a technician

to hook up and set up for a dynamic

test may not take very long; it’s a

simple hook-up to the OBD port.

The drive itself, however, may take

time. In some cases, test drives up to

70 miles have been noted before the

computer successfully tested. I also

want to note that in some states with

distracted driving laws, it may take

two technicians to do the test.

Distance

Think about what goes through a

customer’s mind when they get their

vehicle back and there are 40 additional

miles on the odometer. What

would you think?

Fuel

Some tests require that the vehicle

have a full tank of gas for the test so

that the vehicle is at the correct pitch

or angle during tests.

Scamming for Dollars: Domain Name

Registration Ploys

By Mark Claypool

Such a deal! Today I received a

very official-looking notice, by mail,

that my website domain was coming

up for renewal. The company

that sent this to me was Internet

Domain Name Services, or iDNS.

The registration for my domain,

www.optimaautomotive.com, was

about to expire at the end of June and,

according to them, I needed to take

action. This notice had big bold lettering

at the top that read, “Domain

Name Expiration Notice.” In the middle

of this notice were the pricing

plans. At the bottom, it had a tearoff

section to submit the renewal. It

was “recommended” that I renew for

at least two years, but if I renewed

for five years, which was what they

described as the “best value,” I could

“save” $45! Wow, where do I sign up?

The problem is their one-year

renewal cost, $45, is four-and-a-half

times more expensive than where my

domain name is currently registered.

Their five-year plan, or “best value,”

costs $180, yet my current service

11SE_18BSMotorGuard1pre 7/26/18 3:15 PM Page 1

38 SEMA Show Daily | #SEMA2018

charges me only $60

for the exact same

thing. If I had fallen

for this ploy, this

“best value” would

have cost me an extra

$120.

Send in Your

Registration

I also received an

email for another

domain I own the

rights to.

“This letter is to

inform you that it’s

time to send in your

registration,” the

email said. “Failure

to complete your

domain name search engine registration

by the expiration date may

result in cancellation of this offer,

making it difficult for your customers

to locate you on the web.” Oh

no! Notice how they slipped in the

term “search engine registration”?

If you get a notice about your domain name expiring, don’t fall for it—it’s most

likely a scam.

What a ruse! This was not a domain

renewal notice, this was simply to

“register” with search engines, which

is basically done for free if you know

what you’re doing. It’s deceptive and

worthless and comes from an offshore

source.

No Action Required

No doubt you’ve received similar

notices about domain name expiration

and “registration.” You’ve

received them by mail or gotten

emails and/or phone calls. Many of

our clients who have received these

notices have contacted us over the

years, asking if they needed to do

anything. Almost always, they require

no action unless they’re registered by

the actual service that has contacted

them. It pays to educate yourself.

Legally, these companies are operating

within the law. But that doesn’t

necessarily make what they do right.

They’re hoping that people are ignorant

of the facts, not paying attention

or scared by such an official looking

“notice.” Who wants their website

domain to go down? That would

mean emails would go down, too.

Can’t have that happen! “Better take

care of this now while I’m thinking of

it,” some people say.

To be fair, the mailed notice says,

“As a courtesy to domain name holders,

we are sending you this notification

of the domain name registration

that is due to expire in the next few

months. When you switch today to

Internet Domain Name Services, you

can take advantage of our best savings.

Your registration expires June

30, 2018. Act today!”

Later in the notice it

says, “You are under no

obligation to pay the

amounts stated below,

unless you accept this

offer. This is not a bill, it

is rather an easy means

of payment should you

decide to switch your

domain name registration

to Internet Domain Name

Services.” But this is the

fine print, and the rest of

the solicitation is skillfully

crafted to draw your

attention and make you

think this is an actual bill.

Even the company name

seems official. It’s bordering

on being deceptive, yet

their lawyers have word-smithed it in

such a way to keep them out of legal

jeopardy.

What to Do

How do you know what to do when

these notices come in? Know the

facts. Where is your domain actually

registered? If you don’t know,

you need to find out. To find out

where it’s registered, and to whom

(hopefully you), visit https://whois.

icann.org/en. Most of the time, your

domain will be registered at places

like GoDaddy, Network Solutions,

ENOM, HostGator or some other

large domain registration service.

The owner of the shop needs to

own the rights to your domain name,

not your developer or anyone else,

such as an employee. It needs to

be the owner. In addition, if you

pay your registration services a little

extra, you can have your registration

information hidden from public

view. This will cut down on getting

these annoying and confusing solicitations

and protect you from falling

prey to their tactics.

MIG Brazing: It’s Here

By Mitch Becker

Are you capable of repairing a

vehicle that requires MIG brazing?

Whether you like it or not, that’s

something you need to ask yourself.

As you walk through just about any

shop in America, you’ll find possibly

one if not more vehicles using silicon

bronze welding or what we call MIG

brazing. It may not be needed for

the repairs the vehicle is there for,

but what if it was? Are you capable

of fixing the vehicle? This question,

whether you like it or not, is something

you need to ask yourself.

Research the equipment and training

and you’ll see how this process

is not only necessary but valuable to

any shop. It’s critical that the shop

perform the repairs correctly. MIG

brazing has so many benefits that I

see no slowdown in use by vehicle

manufacturers and shops.

MIG Brazing Defined

Many vehicle manufacturers were

searching for a procedure or option

to use for joining mild steel, highstrength

steel and ultra-high-strength

steel. Squeeze-type resistance spot

welding (STRSW) is great but not

for all applications. Another option is

MIG brazing.

The benefits of MIG brazing are too

great to ignore. The weight savings is

beneficial, but the key factor is the

ability to join steels without damaging

the strength properties of the steel

from heat.

The repair industry has been

adjusting to vehicle manufacturers’

requirements of lower heat in repair

processes. STRSW and MIG brazing

address these concerns. The problem

with STRSW is that it can’t reach all

areas. Heat is also a factor in corrosion

issues with steel. Burning off or

vaporizing the zinc coating or the

galvanic coating defeats the protection

offered against corrosion. The

lower temperatures of MIG brazing

reduce the damage to these coatings

and leave the corrosion protection

properties intact. And there are even

more benefits to MIG brazing:

1. Easy to train and learn.

2. There is less chance of a burnthrough

due to lower temperatures

used in MIG brazing.

3. Less warpage of panels.

4. Easy sanding or finishing of MIG

braze joints or other welds.

These benefits are achieved by the

fact that MIG brazing is an adhesion

process vs. fusion process. Fusion

involves the melting the steel to com-

40 SEMA Show Daily | #SEMA2018

When performing MIG brazing, it’s important to watch your heat. It is not about melting base metals, but proper surface contact of filler metal.

bine metals at temperatures around

1,650ºC or 3,000ºF, but MIG brazing

is done at a much lower temperature.

The silicon copper-based wire is the

only metal melting. The heat allows

the “flow” of the silicon-based filler

wire to form almost an adhesive bond

between the metals being joined. The

footprint size of this adhesion is what

gives the weld its strength. The filler

material will flow to where the heat

is being applied past the weld edges.

The low heat required to adhere the

metals also protects the zinc coatings

and maintains the strength of

the steels.

I do want to caution all shops at

this point. The MIG brazing process

is a much easier type of repair than

traditional steel welds done in the

past. The easy finishing and low

warpage of panels has drawn technicians

into using it on all vehicles,

especially on sail panels and rockerpanel

seam welds. However, MIG

brazing should only be used if the

vehicle manufacturer has written

guidelines and/or has approved it.

I see MIG brazing being used too

liberally and where there is yet no

recommendation when I do weld

testing in shops.

I also want to state that MIG brazing

is required in the proper repair

of many newer vehicles. No substitution

or alternative is allowed.

Vehicle manufacturers explicitly

state when STRSW is required

or—where STRSW electrodes cannot

reach—when MIG brazing is

to be performed. Read the welding

requirements of all vehicles to understand

the type of welds and welding

equipment required for correct

repairs.

Conventional vs.

Pulse GMA Welders

MIG brazing can be achieved using

traditional GMA (MIG) welding

machines. You may have a welder in

your shop capable of doing MIG brazing,

as some conventional or short

circuit GMA welders may be able to

achieve proper welds in some applications.

To be sure, however, you must

do your research and proper training

in welding parameters to be certain

the welding is being done correctly to

vehicle manufacturer requirements.

One parameter that does make a difference

is the specification by many

vehicle manufacturers of at least a

220-/230-volt welder. Having the correct

power is a high priority for any

weld to be successful.

Vehicle manufacturers may require

that GMA machines be capable of

pulse welding. There is a major difference

in the pulse requirements, and

it’s not just the price of the equipment

as the pulse feature does increase the

price extensively. A machine not capable

of pulse welding may make welds

that look the same, but according to

vehicle manufacturers, the strength

difference between non-pulse and

pulse welders may cause failures in

the welds. The pulse requirements

are similarly found in the aluminum

welding process. So if your shop has

set up for aluminum welding and has

purchased a pulse welder for this reason,

you’re set to go.

Pulse welding is designed to offer

heat control to the person welding,

and that’s the name of the game: heat

control. Pulse welding uses spray arc

transfer to deliver droplets of molten

metal to the surface. The pulse controls

these droplets, producing less

heat on the base metal. The computer

controls the parameters of the weld

once certain aspects are entered by

the technician performing the weld.

Pulse welders are somewhat more

complicated to learn and operate than

traditional welders. Once technicians

learn how to use them and figure

out how easy there are, many never

go back to traditional welders. Weld

quality is not only improved by MIG

brazing and aluminum but also steel

welding. The synergy option during

pulse or traditional GMA welding

makes any type of welding easier and

reduces dressing welds and warpage

considerably.

In doing training with various

equipment offered, I have to agree

with industry assessments that it’s

easier to produce quality welds with

pulse welding than traditional welding.

The heat control is why many

manufacturers such as Honda require

pulse welders. As MIG brazing is a

push technique for welding, the pulse

feature controls the bead and heat into

the weld. A quality pulse welder could

be one of the best investments a shop

can make. Not only will you meet all

vehicle manufacturer requirements,

you’ll boost morale in the shop.

As the requirements for pulse welding

capabilities have been around for

a while now, the choice of welders and

costs have changed dramatically in

the last year. If you do your research,

Not Your Average Road Test, continued from page 36

Route

Plan your route. The vehicle may

need to drive north/south routes so

as to avoid driving into the sun while

testing. Be sure the route has all the

parameters needed, such as signs and

lines on the road. Failure to have all

these parameters can be the difference

between a test being successful

or not. Vehicles may need to maintain

highway speeds for up to 10 min. for

completion of the dynamic test.

Weather

Weather can play a big role in testing.

Rain, snow and clouds can have

an impact on testing as these factors

or lighting conditions could affect

the sensors.

Equipment

Not every scan tool can do static

or dynamic testing. On newer vehicles,

a factory tool may be required.

Whether you scan in-house or sublet

it out, be sure the tools are right for

the job. Scanning is not the same

as static testing or dynamic testing.

Scanning involves the reading

of DTCs and functioning of the circuits.

Recalibration is the aiming of

sensors with static tests, dynamic

tests or both.

Obviously, the advanced cameras

and systems can work in many

challenging environments. During

testing, these variables must be limited

to calibrate the systems. You

cannot calibrate or test with too

many variables affecting the outcome

because then you won’t know

why the test failed. Did the test

fail due to bad sensors or was it

raining?

MIG Brazing: It’s Here, continued from page 40

This is what a good MIG braze should look like, but looks aren’t everything. That control

is critical so as not to melt through or destroy the properties of the base metals.

RDE Series

This year’s RDE series curriculum

is special. Since we launched

our first program in November

2010, we’ve continually worked to

make each year a bit different. In

looking at the lineup this year,

nearly half of the 20-plus regular

sessions on Monday, Tuesday

and Wednesday feature a first-time

speaker, while the other half sees

the return of some of our most

favorite RDE alumni.

On Thursday, our program will

see another iteration of what has

become one of my favorite events

of the week: the OEM Collision

Repair Technology Summit. The

Summit is an ever-evolving program

looking at the future of the

industry and its relationship to

the automakers, their certification

programs, their design considerations

and repair expectations, and

the future of technology and transportation

and the impact that will

have on collision repair. It’s going

to be an amazing day.

Lastly, we plan to introduce a

new program called IDEAS Collide

Showcase on Friday (see p. 28

in this edition of the SEMA Show

Daily) that’s going to look at celebrating

bold and wildly unconventional

ideas that have the potential

to transform and reshape how we

think about collision repair and/or

the business models associated with

it. I’m beyond excited to take part

in this first-ever event on Friday

morning.

If you haven’t registered for any of

the aforementioned events yet, you

can still do so at www.scrs.com/

rde. My personal advice would be

to secure a Full Series Pass to take

advantage of the best value and

greatest flexibility throughout the

week, and all of the events I have

talked about in this article.

If you do not pre-register, you

can register for SCRS’ education

programs on-site either at the main

registration desk or in the hallway

outside the education classes.

They will all be held in the North

Hall upper level (take the escalator

by the food court) in rooms

N233–N241.

Once you’re at the SEMA Show,

stop by the SCRS booth (North

Hall Booth #11173) and share with

us sessions that hit home, ideas

that inspired or questions you

have that we can help answer. Take

advantage of the community we’ve

fostered and use it to grow your

network. Like I said before, there

has never been a better time to

take in the SEMA Show, and I can’t

wait to connect with you as we

work toward a more well-informed

and better connected industry

of tomorrow.

Safe travels, and we’ll see you in

Las Vegas!

you’ll find a great quality welder for a

fair price.

Wire used for MIG brazing is silicon-based

or CuSi. Honda states

that shops need ERCuSi-A (USA)

CuSi-3 (Euro) with diameter of .8.

The shielding gas will be argon, as

this is truly MIG welding. Be sure to

follow welder guidelines on welding

tips, liners and rollers as they will

all make a significant difference in

weld quality.

Common Mistakes

When performing MIG brazing, it’s

important to watch your heat. It is not

about melting base metals but proper

surface contact of filler metal. If you

use too much heat, you destroy the

properties of steel and zinc; that’s the

reason for using this type of process.

When welding seams, be sure to

use the welder in non-pulse mode

as it will give you better results. The

panels must have a proper root gap

to allow the filler metal to flow to the

backside. Once completed, the front

and back side of the weld (doing the

stitch process) must look similar. Be

sure to practice heat control and allow

cooling between stitches before pulling

the trigger. Do not get greedy or

go to fast as you may melt through or

create too much heat and destroy the

properties of the base metals.

Take the Quiz

1. What is MAG welding?

2. What is MIG welding?

3. What is MIG brazing?

4. What’s the difference?

5. What’s in your welding tank?

6. Why does it matter?

All other welds require the pulse

mode on the welder and provide

much better strength when this is

used. Practice controlling the speed

as you zigzag across the welds. The

zigzag pattern allows heat to be created

beyond the weld edges, which

allows filler material to flow and make

a large footprint. The pulse mode

controls overheating of the metal during

the weld. Be sure to slow down

slightly as you cross the hole or recommended

opening in the top metal

as you weld. Also, watch the clamping

pressure of parts; too tight will stop

the filler metal from flowing into the

heat zone.

Always do destructive tests. Use

metal from damaged parts to set up

the welder. Take pictures and document

all welds and procedures.

Summary

To all shop managers and owners:

welding supply companies have made

extensive changes to guide you in

your purchase. Many offer welding

testing or a test trial of the equipment

before purchasing, either on-site or at

their locations. Take advantage of this

and make the right choice after testing.

The investment of a good pulse

welder is invaluable to a shop and

some of the best money you’ll spend.

The best advice I can give to a shop

on this subject is to take the new

MIG brazing BRZ02 hands-on training

course from I-CAR. This course

is done in your shop and can provide

the best information and hands-on

training you’ll find.

Selling UTVs: Five Best Practices

That Turn Shoppers Into Buyers

By Mike Imlay

Retailers operating in the off-road

powersports segment may want to

carefully review how their dealership

or shop staff approaches and follows

through with the customers who walk

purchasers—over a seven-month

period to rank the most successful

UTV dealerships, along with the

sales practices associated with their

success. The survey measured treatment

of UTV shoppers who visited a

dealership through a mix of “mystery

shoppers” and scoring across 60-plus

industry indicators for sales success.

Regardless of dealership rankings,

O’Hagan said that there were five basic

sales behaviors universally shared by

retailers who topped the list:

1. Selling Yourself, the Sales Person:

“If we take this first one, selling

yourself, that’s a little misleading,”

O’Hagan said. “I’m not really saying,

hey, I’m a wonderful person.

What it means is that I’m building

rapport and I’m making a positive

first impression. There’s a cliché in

selling anything, which is that we

humans buy from people we like.

And it’s really true. It’s very simple.

You need to set a positive first

impression.”

2. Selling the Dealership: This

second step is all about letting

the customer know that they’ve

found a business that offers them

With the UTV market growing, the aftermarket is also thriving for parts and accessories that

UTV owners crave, including shocks and suspension upgrades, wheels and tires, lighting

and safety equipment, and mobile electronics and infotainment options.

44 SEMA Show Daily | #SEMA2018

something more than UTVs, parts

or accessories. Don’t be afraid

to present your business’ background.

Is it family owned? Has it

sold UTVs for a number of years?

Perhaps it’s your post-purchase

services that make you stand out.

Or perhaps it’s selection, awesome

techs, special UTV outings

or events. “Any dealership should

be able to list a bunch of reasons

that the customer has come to the

right place,” O’Hagan asserted.

3. Understanding the Customer:

“You need to understand the customer

to match their needs with

product features,” O’Hagan said.

Get to know the customers. Listen

to their questions and answer

them helpfully. Introduce them to

products appropriate to their needs

and budget. Involve them through

a walk-around or a see-and-touch

experience. If it’s a vehicle, get them

to sit inside and, if possible, offer

a test drive. If they’re shopping

parts or accessories, demonstrate

how the products work. Exchange

knowledge and give your customer

reasons to buy.

4. Asking for the Sale: According to

O’Hagan, an incredible number of

sales people skip this step. “One

reason is that we humans don’t like

rejection,” he said. “So maybe we

size up the customer and tell ourselves

that they’re just looking or

maybe they’re not serious or whatever

it is. I have to ask for the sale.

I have to get contact information

to be able to follow up.” Of course,

how a sales person does so will

depend on region and customs,

along with the product selections

and the flavor of the store or dealership.

“It can be the softest of soft

closes—just inviting the customer

to sit down at your desk,” O’Hagan

suggested. “Or it can be asking,

‘Are you interested in buying this

product from me today?’ The point

is that we have to ask customers

to buy in order to get their ‘yes’

or state their concerns so we can

address them.”

5. Following Through: “Statistically,

out of five customers who initially

walk into a dealership to

shop UTVs, only one of them

buys during that visit,” O’Hagan

said. “The other four walk out

without buying.” That doesn’t

mean they will never buy, but it

does mean a sales person needs

to get their contact information

and stay in touch. Make yourself

a friendly resource until they’re

ready to buy. That way they return

to you.

Wheel Market Trends

How Consumers Will Roll in 2018 and Beyond

By Mike Imlay

Wheels and tires are fundamental

to every automobile and therefore

remain aftermarket staples. The “2017

SEMA Market Report” estimates the

current custom wheel market to be

worth $1.21 billion in sales.

Gavin Horlick, Voxx Products vice

president and immediate past chairman

of the SEMA Wheel & Tire

Council (WTC), saw parallels between

the uncertainty surrounding ADAS

technology and the recent impact

TPMS had on the wheel industry.

The latter, he said, was a significant

change for the wheel and tire market

five to seven years ago. Nonetheless,

the aftermarket quickly embraced the

new technology, adjusted product,

and learned to leverage it.

“SEMA supported our WTC

research, which we then basically

distributed to aftermarket retailers,

warehouse-distributor wholesalers

and the manufacturers,” Horlick said.

“Within about a year, everyone’s prod-

ucts were aligned to accept TPMS

monitors. Now it’s second nature—

everyone builds wheels that accept

the sensors. I think that smart-tire

interaction is going to have a lot of the

Wheel and Tire Professionals

Connect at the SEMA Show

The Wheel & Tire Council

(WTC) will be hosting

events that allow members

of the aftermarket wheel

and tire community to

meet, mingle, collaborate

and celebrate industry

leaders at the SEMA Show

in Las Vegas. The events

include networking at the

council’s annual reception,

to be held Tuesday evening

at 5:00 p.m. at the Renaissance

Hotel pool.

Attendees who walk the

Lower South Hall of the Las Vegas

Convention Center at the Show

will be passing the booths of hundreds

of WTC-member companies.

Fundamentals to every vehicle, wheels and tires remain staples of the aftermarket and

among the first upgrades vehicle owners will make. In evidence at the 2017 SEMA Show

were beefy truck and Jeep assemblies, but expect virtually every wheel and tire segment

to grow steadily in 2018.

The WTC’s events at the SEMA Show are aimed at creating

community among wheel and tire professionals

through engagement with the council.

All employees of WTC-member

companies are encouraged to connect

same characteristics and questions,

[especially] for the tire companies

that are building compounds that are

going to be used on future vehicles.

I think there are probably a couple of

companies at the OEM level that are

developing the technology to interact

with the car systems, and the companies

that are Tier-2 or Tier-3 tire suppliers

are going to have to understand

the technology pretty quickly to come

out with the same thing.”

What smart tires will actually do

is still unclear. However, if aftermarket

wheel and tire packages alter

unsprung weight or rotational mass—

or even the diameter or width of

the finished wheel and tire assembly—they

could conceivably interfere

with the newest technologies now

found on cars and trucks. That, in

turn, could adversely affect performance

and safety, meaning that the

wheel segment can expect an urgent

need for knowledgeable retailers and

installers to properly suggest product

and maintain the systems.

For the present, the new technologies

literally shaping today’s wheels

center around manufacturing and

production. Flow-form aluminum

Wheel Market Trends, continued from page 55

casting continues to improve, and

enhanced robotics and quality-assurance

techniques are spreading to more

and more manufacturing plants in the

United States and Asia, significantly

reducing operator error, especially at

machining stages.

“Cast-aluminum wheels are fairly

heavy by nature of their production

process,” Horlick said. “As more automation

is introduced into the production

process, the finish quality of the

parts becomes more consistent and

the weight is often reduced. That can

equate to the vehicle performing a

little bit better compared to a traditional

cast-steel wheel.”

Style Trends

No matter how they are manufactured,

wheels are among the biggest

style statements the average consumer

can make to a car or, more likely,

a truck. And “big” remains 2018’s

operative word.

“Like last year, the big-diameter

truck applications were certainly the

paramount trend at the 2017 SEMA

Show,” Horlick noted. “We saw a lot of

forged, eight-lug, wide, tall-diameter

truck wheels. But it’s really important

In the wheel market, expect the ongoing

improvement of aluminum casting and

quality assurance technologies, along with

increasingly innovative designs. The Voxx

Falco wheel’s Flip Cap allows for multiple

bolt circle diameters to reduce inventory,

while having the appearance of a exposed

lug, direct drill styling.

to remember that a lot of times that’s

a fairly regionalized market. So that’s

absolutely the trend down in Texas

and maybe in other areas of the South

and in Southern California. But that’s

not a trend we’re seeing in the Northeast

or in areas around Detroit or the

Pacific Northwest. The people who

are customizing vehicles aren’t doing

the 6-, 8- or 10-in. lifts required to fit

those massive tire and wheel assemblies

on truck applications. They’re

maybe using a 20x10, 20x12 or 22x12

size, which is starting to trend toward

bigger, more robust wheels, but it’s not

as extreme as what we expect to see at

the SEMA Show.”

The extremes include 1-ton truck

applications sporting beefy 26x14 or

26x16 forged truck wheels. But since

they’re expensive to produce, such

wheels are usually cost-prohibitive

to the average consumer, and the

requisite custom suspension components

only add to the price tag.

Consequently, many customizing

consumers opt for a deep-lift truck

design with 20x10 or 20x12 wheels.

The advantages can include readily

available tires and significantly lessexpensive

cast wheels.

In terms of passenger applications,

concave designs remain incredibly

popular.

“The passenger market is becoming

a little more segmented, too,” Horlick

added. “Ten years ago, it was the

import-tuner scene, and wheel manufacturers

were able to build a few part

numbers that sat on every vehicle.

Now, because of social-media influence,

consumers who are driving, say,

Although more expensive than the average

cast wheel, forged designs for trucks and

a Ford Mustang are putting particular

application products on their vehicles,

where that’s not necessarily the same

application or the same kind of design

features that we’d see on a different

vehicle such as a Chevrolet Camaro

or a Dodge or even a high-end Lexus.”

Whatever comes, aftermarket

retailers will be on the front lines of

identifying high-quality wheel and

tire products, demonstrating superior

technical know-how, and upselling

consumers with value propositions

that clearly explain why the highertech

innovations are worth the cost.

Omix-ADA to Showcase Custom Jeeps

Omix-ADA, a leading manufacturer

of high-quality Jeep, truck and

off-road parts and accessories, will

feature a selection of Jeeps from its

vintage and historic Jeep collection at

the company’s Off-Road Success Center

during the 2018 SEMA Show. The

collection will include a Hurst Commando

and other modern builds that

showcase the possibilities for adventure

activity.

This year will mark the sixth year

that Omix-ADA has featured significant

Jeeps at the SEMA Show for spectators

to enjoy. Debuting back in 2013

to wide appeal, the Off-Road Success

Center is a forum where business owners

and industry enthusiasts within the

Jeep and off-road market can meet,

freely exchange ideas and learn new

concepts for success while networking

with other industry professionals.

Omix-ADA invites all SEMA Show

attendees to come to the Off-Road

Success Center to view the featured

vehicles from the collection,

celebrate Jeep’s

proud military heritage

and learn how

to thrive in the growing

Jeep and off-road market.

Visit Omix-ADA in booth

#30024 and the Off-Road Success

center in Booth #34000.

Supporting the “Your Jeep, Your Adventure”

theme at the Omix-ADA Off-Road

Success Center will be a variety of Jeeps

that illustrate how to thrive in the growing

Jeep and off-road marketplace.

Visit ARMO in Central Hall

The Automotive Restoration

Market Organization

(ARMO) and the

Hot Rod Industry Alliance

(HRIA) will share

a booth space located

in Central Hall booth

#23395. Because ARMO

and HRIA have a lot of

crossover in membership,

the shared space

works well for collaboration

between council

members. The booth

Be sure to catch the vehicle unveilings in the ARMO/HRIA booth at

the SEMA Show at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 30.

will display six feature vehicles—three from the hot-rod segment and three from the

restoration segment. Two of the featured vehicles will start the SEMA Show covered

and will be unveiled at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 30, attracting media coverage

and attendee attention. You don’t want to miss those cars.

ARMO select-committee members and SEMA staff will be in the booth throughout

the Show. The booth provides a perfect opportunity for attendees to stop by and ask

questions regarding ARMO membership and how you or your company can get more

involved. The booth is commonly referred to as Central Park because the seating areas

act as a great place to rest your feet and network with industry friends in a location that

anchors the intersection of the Restoration Marketplace and Hot Rod Alley sections

of the Show floor.

NEW PRODUCTS PREVIEW

ProtoMAX Abrasive Waterjet Is a Multiuse

Cutting Tool

The ProtoMAX, by

OMAX, can cut through

nearly any material including:

steel, aluminum, glass,

rubber, as well as a variety

of plastics. The compact

machine footprint combined

with its comprehensive

versatility makes the

ProtoMAX an ideal abrasive waterjet for prototyping,

customer fabrication or as a complement

to a larger machine shop.

Perfect for on-the-spot jobs, the pump and

cutting table are on casters for easy relocation

to anywhere you may need quick custom fabrication.

Work material is submerged under

water for quiet cutting that won’t disrupt your

work space. With the clamshell cover and submerged

cutting, ProtoMAX is safe and quiet

(approximately 76 db).

Though compact, the ProtoMAX delivers

30,000-psi cutting power with a 5hp pump.

Like all OMAX abrasive waterjets, the Proto-

MAX cuts with a no heat-affected zone and no

change to the material properties. The waterjet

plugs into a 240V AC outlet and does not

require any hardwiring.

ProtoMAX is controlled

by OMAX’s Intelli-MAX

Proto software. Software

comes pre-installed on an

included laptop for easy

use. OMAX’s powerful

software makes converting

drawings to cutting

paths easy.

OMAX Corp. Vice President of Marketing

Stephen Bruner commented, “It’s easy to program

even complex paths on the ProtoMAX.

We’ve taken many of the same popular CAD/

CAM software features that we use in our

industrial waterjet systems and incorporated it

into the compact ProtoMAX waterjet. Behind

the scenes, the software uses sophisticated

waterjet cutting models that predict the jet’s

precise behavior when cutting different materials,

thicknesses and shapes. But the user

interface is simple and straightforward, making

it an ideal learning tool for computer-aided

manufacturing.”

ARMO

Restoration

Builder’s Panel

The Restoration Builder’s Panel

education seminar, October 31, from

11:15 a.m.–12:15 p.m., Upper North

Hall N258, will feature well-known

restoration builders discussing best

business practices and how they have

made careers out of their passion.

Restoration builders, professionals,

shop owners and enthusiasts are

encouraged to attend this interactive

discussion. Bring questions or challenges

that your business is currently

facing, as the builders will engage the

audience and answer their questions.

This year’s complete list of panelists

was still being finalized at press

time, but E.J. Fitzgerald of Cool Hand

Customs and Tim Strange of Strange

Motion have confirmed they will both

be back as panelists. Jesse and Jordan

Henke of JH Restorations will

join the panel for the first time as

well. Another one or two builders

are still being courted to round out

yet another unique opportunity for

attendees to hear firsthand accounts

of what worked and maybe what

didn’t from accomplished builders.

Bison Offroad Launches at SEMA 2018

Bison Offroad’s official company

launch is the 2018 SEMA Show, and

their first products are completely

new for the industry. They will debut

stop cam alignment kits that prevent

larger wheels and tires from being

knocked out of alignment, a complete

line of level and lift kits for

all popular trucks and SUVs, and a

new DRL turn signal for the Jeep JK

series. There’s also a super-adjustable

line of Rock Lights for all SUVs

and UTVs.

Stop cam alignment kits—they’re

called “stop cam” because the eccentric

is shaped like a stop sign. The flat

edges cause the adjuster to lock into

place against the frame and allow your

alignment to hold up against larger

wheels, tires and higher side loads that

come from off-road driving.

The Bison Offroad Leveling and Lift

kit product line is growing every day.

Bison stands behind their kits with a

product guarantee for the life of the

vehicle, industry-leading packaging,

There are two things for certain

about having your truck stuck in

mud, sand or snow—it can happen

unexpectedly and the quicker and

safer you get out, the better.

Before there was Bubba Rope there

was double-braid nylon rope used by

the U.S. military for airlifting Humvees

and new features not found from

other companies. For example, the

heavy-duty cast Panhard bracket for

their F-250 kits are slotted to allow for

fine tuning the suspension setup. The

patented forged Torsion Key Wedge is

a completely new design for a suspension

type that’s more than 80 years

old. Installation time and pricing are

both industry leading.

Bison Lights—how can

something so strong be so flexible?

Bison Rock Lights have

a unique mounting system

that gives the installer infinite

installation options. Each Rock

Light includes a sturdy waterproof

aluminum case and bezel

to protect the ultra bright LED

lights. Waterproof connections

are included in the wiring kit

so they work even during the

deepest river crossing.

The newest Bison products

are Jeep JK DRL turn signal/

driving lights. The simple plugand-play

lights give you the option

of daytime running lights on your

Jeep JK that automatically turn off

when the signal is used. All lights are

DOT compliant.

Tough and Stylish Visors

Meet Consumer Demand

Focus Auto Design’s new line of side visors carry on the look of the company’s

“Tough FormFit Guard” hood protector that was launched at the 2017 SEMA

Show to an award-winning reception. Now there is a side visor to match customers’

fender flares and hood protector to complete that aggressive off-road look.

Drawing from more than 25 years in the OE market, Focus Auto Design is raising

the bar and bringing that OE quality to the aftermarket.

Offering both form and function, the new line is engineered using highly

detailed 3-D truck scans that allow for an OE level of fit and finish. High-grade

components include durable, UV-stable ABS and the same stainless-steel Torx

head-style bolt heads used on the Tough Guard hood protector, while the

highest-quality 3M adhesive tape ensures these visors will stay in place for the

life of the truck. Both product lines are covered by a limited lifetime warranty.

Installation takes less than 15 minutes with no drilling or modifications, and the

kit comes with everything, including surface-prepping wipes.

The Tough Side Visor will be initially available for the top five truck models,

plus the new Wrangler JL. Several new Tough Guard Hood Protector applications

have come available over the last year, bringing the total to 25 different

truck and Jeep fitments. All of the Tough Guard hood protectors are also available

in a smooth finish, an excellent match for unpainted fender flares.

Smooth Tough Guards are also exceptional for painting as the acrylic top layer

and the ABS underneath are both outstanding substrates. And since they are

smooth, they require minimal preparation. For more information, contact Focus

Auto Design International Sales Manager Jordan Lewis at Jordan@focusauto.com.

RIGIDSAE LIGHT BAR

RIGID auxiliary lighting has been helping off-roaders own the night for

over 10 years, but RIGID light bars could only be legally used in the

dirt…until now. RIGID has released a complete line of lighting that are

safe and legal for use both on and off the pavement. RIGID’s new SAE

SR-Series offers powerful long-range coverage with the color

temperature of daylight for superior clarity in a variety of conditions. In

addition to providing powerful street-legal lighting solutions, the new

SAE SR-Series light bars features a backlit RIGID branding plate. This

secondary lighting can be controlled independently or in tandem with

the main forward-facing LEDs, offering a custom look to any vehicle.

These new driving lights offer the same quality construction RIGID is

known for, including a low profile extruded aluminum alloy housing,

unbreakable polycarbonate lens, and LEDs rated for 50,000 hours while

consuming very little power. The new Dual-Function SR-Series SAE

Compliant Lights represent the ultimate solution for your street-legal

lighting in North America.

MRN RepMatch Hits a Milestone

One of the key goals of the SEMA

Manufacturers Representative Network

(MRN) is to address industry

issues and develop strategies and programs

designed to meet the special

needs of manufacturers’ reps. One

issue that has directly affected MRN

is the challenge manufacturers face

when looking for quick and easy representation

in a select region. To solve

that issue, MRN launched RepMatch

two years ago. Early this year, the

RepMatch program hit a milestone,

with more than 100 independent rep

agencies participating and more than

200 manufacturers seeking help in

representation.

About the RepMatch

Program

RepMatch is an online tool that

helps connect manufacturers with

sales representatives who have years

of experience in the aftermarket

industry. Part of the benefit of hiring

experienced sales representatives

is that they already have a long list

of loyal customers with whom they

regularly do business.

Many of the MRN reps who are registered

for the RepMatch program see

their customers on a monthly or even

weekly basis. They have established

business relationships that manufacturers

seeking representation in a

specific territory may not have the

resources to sustain.

Vic Bennett, MRN immediate past

chairman and manufacturers’ representative

at Gantt-Thomas & Associates

Inc., discussed the benefits of

using RepMatch.

“RepMatch speeds up the whole process

so that the manufacturer and the

rep can make a quick connection,” he

said. “There’s no having to waste time

meeting with business prospects who

aren’t necessarily a good fit. RepMatch

allows sales reps to find manufacturers

who may be new to the business and

are looking for representation. It also

allows for connections to be made that

may not have happened in person.”

Because RepMatch is an online tool,

manufacturers can get connected with

well-matched sales reps in a matter of

minutes. It is a mutually beneficial program

for the manufacturer and the rep.

Manufacturers seeking representation

from experienced reps can easily

register for the program when they

visit www.sema.org/repmatch. Registered

reps are then notified when a

manufacturer is in search of representation

in their region.

If you are a manufacturers’ rep-

your next valuable business connection,

register for RepMatch now at

is free to MRN members as well

as all manufacturers searching for

accomplished and regionally based

representation.

ICD Design Launches Sport Styling

Package for New Kia Rio Hatchback

Quality Compressed Air Equals Quality

Work and Tool Performance

Mechanical technicians and body and paint specialists appreciate the need

for clean, dry air. Don’t have eight hours to buff a hood after you just spent

eight hours painting it? You won’t have to with the Ingersoll Rand R4-11kW

rotary compressor with Total Air System (TAS). This unit generates highquality

air right out of the box. Integrated high-performance dryers, a threein-one

heat exchanger, and an independent fan circuit are all included in the

TAS package to consistently generate dry, clean air. That’s the key to impeccable

paint finishes free of flaws, fish eyes and orange peels. Dry, clean air also

keeps pneumatic shop tools running well and free of debris and moisture.

Visit Ingersoll Rand in Booth #10160.

ICD Design has just released a new Sport Styling Package for the new

Kia Rio Hatchback and Sedan. The sport styling package features a font lip

spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser (hatchback only) and a roof-mounted spoiler

(hatchback only) that gives the Rio a more distinctive look. It is manufactured

using OEM materials for a perfect fit and finish. ICD offers a contrast color

paint scheme and a carbon-effect finish that help the Rio stand out from

the crowd.

Pneumatic Tool Innovations

By Eric Garbe, TechShop Managing Editor

There’s not a single shop where you

won’t hear the familiar sound of an

air tool. Even Hollywood loves to pipe

in the sound of an impact in every

single auto shop scene. Of course,

the “Hollywood mechanic” may be

bragging about the big-block engine

when the car clearly has a small-block

under the hood, but at least we got the

sound of the impact!

Air tools may not be the first things

that come to mind when you think of

innovation, but don’t be fooled. Just

like the cordless electric tool, smaller,

lighter and more powerful is the goal

that drives innovation, and modern

air tools are always riding on the cutting

edge.

Traditionally made of metal, composite

materials are used in the

construction of lighter and smaller

housings and lightweight metals such

as titanium and aircraft-grade aluminum

have cut even more from

the scale.

Composite materials also have an

added benefit of insulating against

extreme temperature changes, keeping

the tool body comfortable instead

of cold.

Normally you would think that

lightweight means fragile, but it’s the

opposite in this case. In addition to

being lighter, modern materials are

stronger, too, and rigorous testing is

part of the engineering process. These

tools get dropped, beat up and abused

in every possible way to make sure

that they will hold up in the field.

Motor design is constantly on

the list of improvements. Stronger,

lighter materials and the computercontrolled

technology of machining

have resulted in high-quality, longerlasting

motors.

Improved air flow and additional

vanes are pushing power and torque

output higher than it has ever been.

Internal air flow and cooling design

gives us thermally balanced motors,

increasing longevity and providing

consistent performance during

heavy use.

Ergonomics is another non-stop

innovation. Contoured,

cushioned grips provide

comfort and reduce vibration.

The working position

is also factored in as part of

tool development and modern

air tools are balanced to

reduce fatigue and gripping

pressure.

Keeping with ergonomics,

forward, reverse and speed

control buttons are positioned

for easy use, and many

tools have articulated joints

to adjust for different jobs.

Exhaust used to be just

a “blow-it-out-anywhere”

affair, but much more

thought goes into it today.

The air is directed away from

the work area and the technician

so a minimal amount of

debris is kicked up and nothing

is blown back at the user.

Exhaust is also designed to

reduce noise and many tools

offer variable exhaust outlets

in the event that you need to open it

up for maximum power.

A unique aspect on the list of innovations

is personality. Put another

notch on the composite belt, because

many companies are offering a wide

range of colors for their air tools. You

spend a lot of money on your tools,

so why not get a color you like? This

also serves as a way to identify your

air tools easily from others’, making

sure they stay on your box where

they belong.

Variable triggers are one final thing

that cannot be overlooked. The days

of all or nothing are long gone. When

they were originally supposed to be

variable, they were very touchy and

never really hit the mark, but now

they function as they should—providing

excellent control.

Even though we’re focusing on innovations,

I’d like to veer off course and

talk about air tool lubrication. They

have always needed it and always will.

It can mean the difference between a

Air tools may not be the first things that come to mind

when you think of innovation, but don’t be fooled.

There are multiple different brands

and types of oil available and you may

already have a preference, but using

any one is better than none.

It is important to point out that not

only is it necessary to lubricate prior

to using, but it is equally, if not more

critical, to lubricate prior to storage.

As you use your air tool, moisture

and contaminants are deposited

throughout. It’s the oil that cleans

these out to prevent damage. After

using an air tool, most of the pre-use

lubrication has been forced out, leaving

moisture and contaminants in

the tool.

If the tool sits in your box, even

overnight, this moisture will slowly

begin to corrode the inner workings.

Running a few drops of lubricant

through the tool after use allows you

to store your tools with a fresh, clean

layer of oil on the inside and prevents

unwanted corrosion.

You’ll know that your tools will

always be ready to work, just in case

long-lasting tool and a short life. Hollywood shows up.
