REINFORCED A-SERIES HOSES

Mini Spares has noticed that most of the standard rubber coolant hoses that are available seem to have a much shorter life expectancy than you would want.

If you’ve ever tried it you’ll know you don’t want to fit radiator hoses to a classic Mini engine that often! The solution was for Mini Spares to develop its own brand and reinforce it with KevlarÒ- the same material that is used in ballistic vests and helmets. You can see the KevlarÒfor yourself – it’s the white strands visible at the ends of the hoses.

This has extended the life of the coolant hoses More >

HERITAGE SUPPORTS FORMULA VEE

Classic VW and Porsche parts purveyors Heritage Parts Centre has been in touch with news that they will once again be title sponsors for the long-running Formula Vee race championship.

Powered by the trusty VW 1300sp engine, this grassroots single-seater championship is celebrating its 52nd year in the UK in 2019.

These pocket rockets also rely on Beetle front suspension and gearboxes, produce in excess of 100bhp and top 100mph on the straights, which makes for some pretty spectacular racing for both drivers and spectators alike.

Heritage CEO Barney Dines said: “Formula Vee is a real celebration of how good the air-cooled VW More >

KARMA PROJECT FOR SALE

When you look at the kitcar sales charts from the last seventy years the names Caterham and Lotus sit right at the top, which in the case of the latter who offered their last car in component form as far back as 1973, shows just how prolific their kit sales were.

Another kit that sits in a healthy position is the Karma by RW Kit Cars of Melton Mowbray. The company was run by skilled fibreglass laminator, Roger Woolley, who back in the eighties also ran an egg business and he’d make his deliveries in his Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. A proper More >

LEATHER SUPREMO

In classic car circles, one of the best-known coachtrimming companies is O’Rourke Coachtrimmers & Supplies, based in West Sussex.

The company has just released their own range of leather-related treatments and cleaners. Initially, I thought that they were just ‘badge-engineered’ products. Other people’s stuff with their labels on.

Wrong actually. They have devised this stuff to their own formulations and put their name to them because they think they work better than anything else around.

The products are available separately or best-value is a Leather Care Bundle at £74.95 which includes 1 x 500ml Leather Cleaner, 1 x 200ml Leather Balm, 1 x More >
