With summer almost here, blue skies and bright sun are just around the corner. While we enjoy these days, the bright sun can damage your car. Years of UV rays and intense heat can cause permanent damage to leather, upholstery, steering wheels, shift knobs and dashboards. Left unprotected, these items can cost thousands to replace or refurbish.
One of the best ways to protect the interior of your car is with a custom bubble sun shade. The custom bubble sun shade fits into the front window of your car and will shield the interior from the blazing hot sun. It can also reduce interior temperatures of your car by 35 degrees Fahrenheit. Not only will this keep the interior materials in better shape over time, but it will also reduce instances of burning your legs, hands and elbows on the scorching hot leather after your car has been sitting in the sun all day.
Some features of the custom bubble shade include:
- Multi-layered double bubble material with a metalized outer film which reflects UV rays
- Reduces inside temperatures up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit
- Protects leather seats from becoming hot and cracking
- Keeps steering wheel and shift knob comfortable to the touch
- Easy to roll up and with an attached Velcro strap makes item easy to stow
- Finished with a UV resistant, non-abrasive velour binding
- Lifetime Warranty

As spring approaches, when April showers bring May flowers, the rain can produce more treacherous elements for your car’s interior. The resulting dirt and mud can wreck havoc on a car, with most of the damage occurring to the floor area. Stock OEM floor mats get dirty when wet and will eventually start to smell. Over time, the water and dirt left behind can soak in and break down the materials. Thus making them less effective at protecting the carpet beneath.
Now is the time to protect your car’s interior floor area before it gets permanently damaged. Purchasing customized protective floor mats is a great way to ensure that your car’s interior floor area continues to look factory new. Custom Auto Accessories provides many types of all-weather floor mats to fit your vehicle. Each style is custom patterned to fit the make, model and year of your vehicle. This is far better than the “off the shelf” types that are generic patterned and don’t specific fit your vehicle; leaving floor areas susceptible to dirt, grit and water.
All of our custom floor mats come with a lifetime warranty and a money back guarantee; so you can rest assured you are getting a great product. Order today and you will also receive free shipping.

When purchasing accessories for your car, you want to make sure they are properly installed for safety reasons. All of our products are rigorously tested to ensure high quality and safety. However, if not properly used or installed, any product purchased from any supplier can be considered unsafe. To help you get the most out of your products, we have compiled a list of things to do, to make sure you are as safe as you can be when installing custom auto accessories.
- Before installing your new floor mats, remove the old ones. If you place your new mats on top of the old ones, this may not leave enough room for you to move the gas and brake pedals effectively.
- Secure your floor mats to the floor. Many vehicles have special hooks that secure the mat. These hooks are there for your safety. If you do not use these hooks, your mat may slide into an unsafe position. If your vehicle does not have hooks, place your floor mats securely and be certain that they do not interfere with your pedals.
- Only use mats that are designed for your car’s make and model. If you buy the wrong mats, the fit could make it more difficult to reach and operate the pedals.
When you purchase any accessory for your car, it is important that you test it out before you take the car on the road. Try driving around in an open area to ensure that the car is running smoothly. As always, safety is the highest priority.

With the racing season upon us, how do you show your love for fast cars? Many will have pennants of their favorite driver or team. Others will have a shelf of collectible cars showing their alliance to the different types of racing and the world’s best drivers.
Sometimes showing you are a race fan is too tacky for your office. You may not want a bunch of model cars and cardboard cutouts of drivers in your office. A different way to show you are a true enthusiast is to get race inspired furniture. But you don’t want something that is tacky and won’t fit into your office culture. Who really wants to show off a car bumper that has been turned into a desk? A real working office needs a real working desk and chair set.
Pit Stop Furniture now offers custom race inspired furniture that will show you are an enthusiast without sacrificing the class and sophistication of your work or home office. Two styles of racing chairs are offered, which can be customized to meet the look you are seeking. You can choose from either Formula One, or Grand Prix style chairs. The Formula One chair allows you to customize the components to get the exact color scheme you are looking for.
To match the chair, Pit Stop Furniture also offers 3 variations of race inspired desks to complete the set. Choose from black, silver or red to match your chair. For more information or to order please visit our race inspired furniture gallery.

Purchasing a car is likely one of the most expensive items a person will buy in their lifetime, with a home being the most expensive. Most people will keep their vehicle for 5 years or more. And during that time, you want to keep it running well and looking clean on the inside. One of the hardest areas to keep clean is the carpet. It can receive unsightly stains that may eventually start to smell from dirt, snow, water and even spilled drinks. One of the better ways to protect your car is to purchase after-market floor mats. These floor mats come in many different shapes, sizes and materials, and all are not created equal. Some store bought ones, while inexpensive, don’t hold up year after year. You truly get what you pay for. Here are some tips that you can use when shopping for mats to protect your carpet.
- Make sure they are custom – Custom mats mean they are specifically designed for your particular vehicle. Every vehicle has a different interior shape, so an off the shelf floor mat, often times won’t fit properly, leaving gaps for dirt, water, snow and other materials to sink in.
- Check the materials. The reason store bought floor mats are cheaper is because they cut corners on material. When purchasing an after-market floor mat, make sure it is well made and carries a good warranty or guarantee.
- Purchase a mat that will suit your needs. Not everyone lives where snow and rainy weather are prevalent, so you may not need an all-weather mat. If this is the case, you may only need a mat that can be easily cleaned of loose dirt and to catch any spills that may occur.
Protecting the interior of your car will help it to retain its value when you go to sell it, so choosing the right products is vital. For more information about floor mats and other auto accessories, please see www.customautoaccessories.com.

When choosing car protection products, you want to make sure that they actually do the job they say they do. Going into a local auto parts store or super store with an automotive department is usually the first step to finding car care items. While these stores generally have a good selection of products, they are often generic. Generic cleaners are okay, but when it comes to floor mats and car covers, generic products may not protect like they should. Because they are not customized for your vehicle, they often won’t fit correctly leaving your car susceptible to dirt, liquid and harsh outdoor elements that can ruin your car’s interior and exterior.
When choosing a car cover or floor mats, it is important to make sure that they are made specifically to fit your vehicle. The car covers and floor mats from www.customautoaccessories.com are all made to specifically fit your vehicle. They are durable and guaranteed to last. These items are also customizable with a favorite logo, or even a family crest. They image can be embroidered on the product to give it even more customization.

One of the things that is hated most about winter is the fact that after an overnight snow, you have to scrape the ice and snow from your vehicles windows in the morning. It’s time consuming, cold and dreaded by most. Driving in the winter can be dangerous, and even more so with only partially scraped windows. And sure enough, I bet you have had to use a credit card to scrape your window because you forgot the snow scraper, or it broke while you were scraping.
If you are sick of scraping snow, then the winter snow shade is for you. The winter snow shade attaches to your front window, so if it snows, you simply remove it and all the snow with it. Even if it doesn’t snow, the winter shade will protect your car by repelling harmful UV rays that can damage the interior of your car. When not in use, it can be rolled up and stored in the backseat or trunk, ready for its next use.
The winter snow shade will fit over 1,600 models and carries a lifetime warranty. For more information and to order your snow shade, please visit http://www.customautoaccessories.com/Winter-Snow-Shade.html.

Many people that have to drive in winter weather may already know that there are some essential things to keep in your car at all times. Some include extra clothes, jumper cables, road flares, bottled water, and gloves. While these items will help you in the event that you get stuck, there are some other items that help to keep your car a little cleaner during the dreary and wet winter months.
Standard car mats may look nice and match your car, but they often don’t look that way for very long. Just a few months of wet shoes soaked from winter snow, salt and grime can ruin a car mat. Also, if you don’t dry them out regularly, they can start to smell. You’ve invested so much into your car and want to keep it nice. To protect your car’s carpets and keep it looking new, you should invest in after market floor mats. While you could just go to the local auto parts store and pick up some cheap replacement, you will be disappointed to know that they will not protect your car very well. Many of these mats are not custom to your car and will need to be modified to fit.
The Hexomat floor mat is an all weather car mat offered by Custom Auto Accessories. It is a custom solution that will fit the exact make and model of your car. It can be purchased in an array of colors and will keep your car’s carpets clean and dry. They can also be customized to include a brand logo, owner initials or any other image that you can come up with. The deep hexagon shaped grooves keep snow, dirt and mud off of your carpets. The Hexomat features a lifetime warranty so you know it will keep your car protected winter after winter!
