When working on high-end, show-quality classic vehicles, kitcars or automotive displays, the fit and finish of the fasteners is just as important as the paint and bodywork.

For example, chrome-plated fasteners can be damaged easily, especially when using standard metal spanners and sockets. That’s why Laser Tools has introduced two specialist non-marring tool sets: the Non-Marring Socket Inserts set (part number 7463) and the Non-Marring Wrench and Pry Bar set (part number 7464).

Kitcars often feature fasteners that can be plated, anodised, chemically passivated or even painted. Lots of care and attention has been put into building and preparing these vehicles, so extra care and attention is also required when working on them. When you need to use a socket, reach for the socket inserts set.

Six inserts fit metric fasteners from 8mm to 17mm and are supplied with a snap-together metal ring to keep them tidy. Choose the correctly-sized insert and slot it into the corresponding socket, for example, for a 13mm fastener, the insert fits into a 17mm socket.

The wrench and pry-bar set includes a large and flexible pry bar plus four double-ended wrenches that usefully fit both metric and imperial sizes: 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 13mm, 3/8in, 7/16in and ½in.

The pry bar is ideal for removing interior trim panels, headlight rims and hub caps. Supplied in a sturdy blow-mould case. These tools are tough and robust, but will not mark or damage the plated, anodised or painted finish. You can tend to your projects with peace of mind.

These innovative and invaluable toolsets are available from your Laser Tools stockist now. Very good value — typically priced at £7.63 for the 7463 and £38.40 for the 7464 (prices include VAT), but remember to check for the best prices and special offers.
