A Better Wrench

Specialty Products

To save both time and expense, we at ABW have identified areas of existing parts ( interior cabin, exterior body and engine ) that can be repaired rather than replacing an entire assembly. By correcting the affected area some repairs are actually stronger than the OEM versions and still every bit as attractive so as to maintain the look and feel of the interior decor or the exterior design. Our engine / mechanical repair kits are likewise the product of considerable experience. They are carefully designed to provide both the professional and adept amateur mechanic with a superior repair often saving considerable expense enabling a satisfactory customer repair experience that brings people back to your shop.

Simply put - THIS IS THE STUFF THAT NOBODY ELSE MAKES!

The original is plastic, this is black anodized aluminum. The center light is still functional thanks to a Lexan insert that transmits light up from the switch arm. $30.00
