OH BLIMEY, I’VE ALREADY USED THE ‘GOING TO CALIFORNIA’ HEADING? HOW ABOUT MISTY MOUNTAIN HOP, INSTEAD?!

The legend of MOMO is reborn with the MOMO California Wood steering wheel. 

The classically styled Californian Wood is, as its name implies, made from genuine mahogany that is accented with polished chrome spokes and features the MOMO Heritage logo on the horn button as proof of its authenticity.

This beautiful classic steering wheel reflects the true heritage of MOMO, harking all the way back to the company’s beginnings in 1964. Class, quality and style and is priced at £395.99 inc VAT.

THE SHIELD

Most of us are all too familiar with the sound of a metallic rattling coming from under a vehicle. All too often it’s the catalytic converter shield hanging off and dragging on the road.

Catalytic converters are expensive to replace so the shield is important. If your vehicle doesn’t have a CAT-shield or it is rusting away DEI offers an easy and less expensive solution, a universal-fit catalytic converter shield.

Catalytic converters get extremely hot and without a shield, a vehicle is vulnerable to oil or grease landing on the converter creating a fire risk. Parking on dry grass or leaves is More >

T-CUT’S NEW METAL POLISH

I ran out of my preferred metal polishes the other day and only had a tube of T-Cut Original Metal Polish to hand that they’d sent me to try so I put that through its paces.

Actually, I was pleasantly surprised at the way it removed grease and heavy oxidation from the copper saucepan I was trying to clean. It can also be used on chrome, nickel, stainless steel, aluminium amongst others and it also gave the pan a bit of shine and lustre.

I’ve subsequently used it on a tarnished exhaust pipe along with Meguiar’s All Purpose Cleaner and it worked More >

IT’S ‘MYNT’ WITH CHERRIES!

Northern Ireland-based brand Mynt Automotive make a cool range of products for the detailing enthusiast and recently I had the chance to try out their No.7 Interior Detailer, which has a glorious, deep cherry scent without being artificial like some of those horrid vaping fragrances.

However, what it does very well is lift dust and greasy finger marks and gives the dashboard a very pleasant factory-finish sheen. It also seemed to last a long time too, managing to repel all but the heaviest dust.

A 500gm spray bottle tin costs £12.95 and is available from www.myntautomotive.co.uk ENDS.

 

A HYBRID COUPE CONCEPT

Latest concept from West Midlands-based, Rook Design, in association with Tribute Automotive, is the Diamond Back, which is a body conversion based on Mazda MX-5 Mk3. It combines a bit of Shelby Daytona Coupe at the front with classic sixties-inspired fastback at the rear.

BRIGHT LIGHTS

Ring, the automotive workshop lighting experts, has launched a new slim-line inspection lamp to get light into even the narrowest gaps in the engine bay.

The RIL3800bhp MAGflex Slim is just 15mm deep, meaning that it can throw light into the hardest to reach spots, as well as providing a broad illumination for the entire engine bay.

It features a ‘chip-on-board’ (COB) 3w LEDs that emit up to 250-lumens, while the lamp’s white colour temperature – 6000K – provides a comfortable working light and includes a torch for a focused beam.

The MAGflex Slim also has a magnet for hands-free use and a More >

QUICK! IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Ultimately when I choose car care products the way they work and perform is the prime reason for buying them but I have to be honest and say that lurid colours and lovely smells are also very important to me.

A company that I like and one of the many Scottish-based artisan car care houses is AM Details, founded and run by one of the UK’s gurus of such matters, Alan Medcraf.

Their products work just as they say they will are brightly coloured and have a lovely pong. Take their Quick Detailer Plus product, a vibrant bright yellow liquid that smells More >

SEALEY GET RAMPED UP

Sealey’s new three-tonne capacity ramps (per pair) are a new addition to the range. They are manufactured from durable polypropylene so are lightweight compared to standard metal models.
