Did you hear that Chevrolet is introducing a 500HP Camaro for 2014. It’s badged as the Z/28 and for 2014 it’s going to be equipped with the Corvette motor, using the Z06′s 7.0-liter LS7, said to be good for at least 500 horsepower.
Perhaps this whole time we’ve mentioned billet parts, you weren’t quite sure what it really meant. Here’s the most simplest way to describe what billet is; it means aluminum was milled/cut/carved out from a solid block. Therefore, no moulding, no joins, and less likely to have flaws or stress cracks.
Not only is billet higher in quality, but it can still be chromed, powder coated or anodized for that custom look. Billet offers strength and quality that far exceeds stock plastic parts you may see on your vehicles.
Let’s take for example the stock door handle on an FJ Cruiser. That door handle is made out of plastic. So not only is the quality lower compared to billet, but now you even have the risk of getting your FJ broken into by some thug who simply breaks the plastic door handle to get into your vehicle. Now they can steal your valuables or worse, steal the FJ.
Take a look at the Pirate Mfg BILLET door handle for the FJ. This handle was made out of a SOLID BLOCK of 6061-T6 aluminum!
If you didn’t know 6061-T-6 aluminum is AIRCRAFT GRADE. It’s commonly used to produce fuselages and aircraft wings. The same 6061 T-6 aircraft-grade aluminum is also corrosion resistant. So if it’s good enough for an airplane, then it should be good enough for your vehicle, right?!
I find it funny how the following morning news and talk shows are all talking about what the celebrities were wearing for the Oscars. Fancy designer brands were mentioned and how a certain dress looked great. Even talk of how their hair complimented the sequence of the dress…aye. I don’t know about you, but I’m Oscar’d Out!
Pirate Mfg sells quite a bit of external parts such as door handles, gas door handles, gills, and even light bezels. But what about under the hood? Ever consider getting parts to make it look great? Why not right? I mean, it’s the source of power for your sweet ride. Here’s some items that we sell for under the hood stylings.
So you think it’s about time to move onto a different vehicle, and you’re ready to sell your H2. If you started checking out Autotrader.com, Craigslist and other online ads, you’ll find some Hummers with various mileage and condition.
Here’s the retail for an 05 Hummer H2. To the right of it is the private party value.
So now that you have an idea on how much this iconic vehicle is going for. Have you ever wondered how you can get the most out of your H2? Here’s an idea, invest in some visual candy. Here’s what we mean. If you install some Pirate Mfg billet parts, it should help you sell your vehicle faster. Nothing says bling like billet parts.
Just think about it, if you were to get into a vehicle that had a stock/oem interior, then nothing about it really wows you. But an interior with beautiful billet parts will definitely get your attention.
Pirate Mfg carries a whole line of interior and exterior billet parts to make your H2 look it’s best. We’re guessing that once you start adding on the billet parts from Pirate Mfg, you’ll like it so much that you’ll end up keeping your truck!

1. REMOVE STOCK FUEL DOOR: Open the fuel door and

Using a flat blade screwdriver pry the locking tab out slightly and
pull the stock fuel door toward you sliding the stock fuel door off
the door bracket. (See FIG 1 & 2)
2. DRILL SET SCREW HOLE: Drill a 3/16” hole for the set

3. INSTALL BILLET FUEL DOOR: Line up the lower tabs first,
and then the upper tabs on the Billet Fuel Door with the slotted
rails in the door bracket and slide the Billet Fuel Door on to the
door bracket. The tab on the back of the Billet Fuel Door must
slide past the locking tab on the door bracket. You will not be
able to slide the Billet Fuel Door back off without releasing the
locking tab if it is installed correctly. (See FIG 4)
4. ALIGN BILLET FUEL DOOR: Carefully close the fuel door
to check front-to-back alignment. Be careful when first closing
the Billet Fuel Door so you do not contact your paint. If the front
side is too close to the body, slide the Billet Fuel Door slightly
back to the rear of the truck until the Billet Fuel Door is properly
aligned. (See FIG 5)
