For many, many years Graham Beech was the man behind Intatrim, a company who supplied seats to thousands of kitcar owners and manufacturers. However, Graham announced his retirement in the summer…
The new owners of the Shropshire business are Matthew Speight and Rob Baugh who told me: “We’re delighted to have taken over the mantle at Intatrim. We are determined to maintain the great reputation for excellent quality and craftsmanship built up over the last 26-years by Graham and his team.

As a paid-up fan and user I was delighted to hear that Ordnance Survey’s (OS) iconic road map series OS Road have been relaunched after a seven-year hiatus. The eight map sheets, covering the whole of Great Britain, are back by popular demand and with a new twist that is aimed at helping tourists see even more of Britain.
For the first time the road maps, which also have a new look and design to their predecessors, will show designated beaches and National Parks visitor centres. They are also OS’s first maps to include the appearance of the Queensferry Crossing.

The intervening years (where does time go?) has seen Andrew develop and grow his business specialising in all things related to the 2CV. More >

A lot of older cars never had the option of in-built reversing lights and this means that they didn’t have the facility to have a gearbox ‘switch’. The latest new product from Better Car Lighting could well sort this issue out for you.

Dickies Workwear has added to their Every Day range with two new coveralls: The FR24/7 and the FR24/7TP – probably the best value overalls of their type on the market.
