Belmor’s Next Gen Bug Deflectors

Anyone who’s ever owned one will tell you that Belmor bug deflectors are excellent. Their years and years in the industry have made them leaders in the field. And the great thing about their products is that they’re as good looking as they are easy to install! The latest design to be added to their repertoire is the “Next Gen,” a curvy, single-piece hood shield. This style is available for the country’s most popular new trucks, including Cascadia, Columbia, T660, and more.

Brand New Volvo Chrome from United Pacific

We’ve just been tickled to death by how many Volvo dash pieces have been popping up lately. Regardless of what any old fogie tells you, today’s drivers know that a Volvo can be a great looking truck, you just have to know where to look for the parts. Empire Chrome stocks more Volvo chrome than any other chrome shop!

Today’s offerings are a couple of switch handle covers. Both of these take seconds to install. Each is a two piece kit (front and back) that snaps over the existing handle, and they include double-stick tape for extra hold.

Volvo License Plate Holders

These new Volvo license plate mounts are specifically designed for the truck’s curvy, unique bumper. Rather than mounting directly to the face of the bumper or hanging down by a hinge, they mount “upside down” below the bumper, for a look that is both straight-forward and peerless.

Volvo Sleeper Window Trims

It’s easy to get really excited about a new bumper or grill, but there’s more to a truck than the hood. When people see your truck from the side, does it match the front? And what about the top of the sleeper? These trims are some of the pieces that not everybody thinks to get – or aren’t willing to spend the cash on. Let’s take a tour around the Volvo and see some of the most subtle, yet effective chrome trims you can buy.

Sizzlin’ New Volvo Chrome for July

We know – it’s been entirely too long since we have posted on this blog. Earlier this summer, we redesigned our website and spent several weeks adding new filtering and sorting functions to our product categories.

We hope that the trade-off is enough to make up for the silence! Meanwhile, the store has been adding new items as quickly as ever. Some of our favorites are the latest offerings for Volvos, so we figured that was the best place to start.

These days, a new chrome bumper for your Volvo will set you back at least $700. Or, you could spend less than 20% of that and still come out with a much nicer look on your front end! These plastic trims stick on the stock bumper in moments and really give you a lot of bang for your buck.

If you’re detail-oriented – and most of our customers are – you’ve probably been annoyed about not being able to find these sleeper trims anywhere. Luckily, we have them now, so you can fill in the missing spaces!

Last but not least, we’ve got this tiny chrome interior knob. This fits the little knob on your doors. It’s a nice little detail that’s easy enough to install.

New Volvo Interior and Exterior

Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas! Canadian folks, enjoy your Boxing Day. Those of us stateside aren’t lucky enough to have such a wonderful day set aside for the cleaning up of holiday decorations.

We’re going to wrap up this year with a few posts about new items, including these great new Volvo pieces! Volvo dash chrome is one of our fastest growing parts of the store, so we’re bringing in new parts as quickly as the manufacturers can make them.

The first week we brought these switch covers in, we sold out in a matter of hours. You know something’s good when it flies out before the ink dries on the price tag! They install instantly – just snap them over your existing switches.

These replacement fog lights match the style of your originals, making them ideal for both chrome enthusiasts and fleets.

These handle covers are small, but sometimes all it takes to really push a truck across the line from “meh” to “WOW” is a little attention to detail.

Our final featured Volvo piece of the year is this curvy trailer brake handle cover. This is definitely the most unique trailer brake handle in modern trucks. It’s much better than the older styles, as this ergodynamic shape is easier to handle. The chrome cover looks beautiful, particularly if you have several of our stainless steel dash panels behind it.

Brand New Volvo LEDs and Sleeper Trims

Although our selection of Volvo chrome has been growing steadily for the past year, one thing that’s been lacking is LED light options. We still don’t have an aftermarket option for the side turn signal, but today we’re excited to unveil LED lights for the visor!

These replacement lights are simple to install and they feature ultra-modern styling. This is a great option for fleet drivers who don’t want to invest in an expensive new sunvisor for the truck.

Equally exciting are these two sleeper trims. Adding a few stainless steel accent trims can give an otherwise blah truck just enough kick to make it stand out. These are great for tight budgets – you don’t always have to spring for big pieces like cab and sleeper lights to make a difference!

Brand-New Volvo Chrome!

We love bringing out new parts for Volvos. It’s common knowledge that a lot of your Volvo drivers feel unloved by the chrome shop, but we’re doing our best to change that. It’s a slow process, but every little step counts, right?

I hope so, because this week we’ve got some really cool new Volvo pieces to unveil.

Volvo stainless steel “chopped look” door window ventshade – 5″ tall, PAIR

Available in 5″ or 8″ lengths, these Volvo ventshades are one of the most exciting parts we’ve gotten in for a long time. Some drivers have said that they want their Volvo to get equal treatment compared to Peterbilts. We think this is a pretty good leap in that direction.

Betcha didn’t see that one coming! That’s right, a shiny new grill for your Volvo. Use your existing logo – this grill has mounting holes for it!

February 2011 – New Chrome Accessories

As promised, this month’s new products feature several pieces for the Volvo dash! We hope all of the Volvo drivers out there see this! Empire Chrome Shop doesn’t discriminate against Volvos, Internationals, or Western Stars!

We’re also pleased to reveal United Pacific’s new gear shift knob collection. When these were announced back in September, we ordered them immediately! Apparently the demand was higher than expected, because we only just got them at the end of January. Hopefully, they won’t run out again so quickly.
