SMELLS GOOD ENOUGH TO DRINK – BUT DON’T! OUT IT ON YOUR CAR INSTEAD

I like the Sam’s Detailing brand and they make really good products that often smell amazing.

Here’s a great duo from them. Starting with their Liquid Wax, which has a totally and utterly glorious banana scent. I had one of those Frijj banana milkshakes (other brands are available! on the go when I cracked Sam’s Liquid Wax open and I kid you not, in my haste for a gulp of milkshake I almost downed a glug or two of the Liquid Wax, because it smelt so lovely. Best not try that at home, eh!

Anyway, smell aside, this product is a good More >

Just six of the Shelby Daytona Coupes were built for racing between 1964-65. The late Carroll Shelby giving his designer, Peter Brock the brief to design a GT car that More >

A GLASS CANOPY

Here’s a cracking product, a sealant with a difference.

A sealant should be applied to your paintwork after you’ve washed, clayed and thoroughly decontaminated the body and it should ideally be applied before a coat of wax. However, if you are doing an in-between clean some of them have decent levels of gloss and so can be used a standalone product, such as Glass Canopy Liquid Sealant, by Infinity Wax.

If you do use a wax over a decent sealant, however, the results can be spectacular and you could feasibly get paint protection that lasts up to a year. This one, blended More >

DUAL-PURPOSE WASHERS

Clamping Washers are used by many manufacturers to hold stuff like underbody heat shields and sound deadening materials, in place.

They are lightweight, sprung-steel washers that push on to and grip a simple, coarsely threaded stud that is permanently attached to the vehicle body. Unfortunately, they can be tricky to remove once corroded without breaking them or bending the stud.

This useful clamping washer tool (part number 7347) has been specifically developed to make the removal and fitting of these clamping washers and easy and straightforward task.

Designed for the 32mm diameter washers, the two steel pins engage with the washer and allow More >
