Wired for Success: ididit’s acquisition of Vintage Wires connects today’s customizers with the past

TECUMSEH, MICHIGAN: Custom steering column company ididit has made further inroads with fans of unique hot rods and customs with its acquisition of Vintage Wires, a Holland Michigan-based business offering classic ignition cable sets.

Vintage Wires Ignition Cable Sets include 7.8mm spark plug wires featuring a lacquer-covered cotton braid. They are EPDM silicone insulated, with a spiral-wound suppression core. Boots, terminals and installation instructions are included. The wires are popular choices for vintage racecars and other classic projects as they have the appearance of classic fabric wires but the safety of modern wiring systems.

The acquisition adds a complementary product line to go with ididit’s renowned steering columns and accessories, allowing customers to outfit their projects with vintage spark plug wires that give engines a classic hot rod appearance using proven spark-carrying technology.

BREAK IT DOWN Quality, innovation on display in ididit’s updated line of collapsible columns.

TECUMSEH, MICHIGAN: When quality meets innovation, hot rodders and racers are the winners. Such is the case with steering company ididit’s newly updated line of collapsible columns.

Quality comes with the use of Delrin® shear pins that offer improved resistance to fatigue and wear. Often used in bushings and other components, acetal plastic—commonly known by the brand name Delrin®—is a thermoplastic polymer manufactured by the polymerization of formaldehyde.

Innovation comes from a new inner-workings design developed by ididit engineers that features shift tube improvements and additional perforations for double the amount of column collapsibility over previous models.

For drivers of custom cars and racers, it simply means a safer steering column in case of an accident.
