MINI SPARES TAKE THE PRESSURE OFF

A sudden loss of oil pressure can destroy an engine in seconds. The standard 7lb oil pressure switch fitted to classic Minis often gives the warning too late to save the engine.

Mini Spares new uprated 20lb oil pressure switch activates the warning light when the oil pressure drops to 20lbs giving the driver precious extra seconds to shut down the engine.

The oil pressure switch can be ordered as part number HPS1 at just £18.60 inc VAT, which seems like a small price to pay to protect your engine.

The current favourite, HD Wax, was well-loved by professional detailers and More >

COSMETICS? NO, COMETICS!

Burton Power has recently increased its range of Cometic Head Gaskets both in terms of available applications and the variety of thicknesses available. In some applications there are as many as eleven thickness options available.

TWO-IN-ONE FROM LASER TOOLS

You can see the fastener but you know you can’t get a socket or driver bit onto it without dismantling half the engine! You need this new super-slim flexi-head ratchet from Laser Tools (part number 6744).

One end is a standard ¼in square drive and the other end is a ¼in bit driver; both are reversible and lockable. However, the big advantage is the flexi-head design – both heads swivel through a full 180º at the press of the button and lock into the required position.

The fully-polished ratchet handle is very slim and 300mm long for access to difficult areas, beautifully More >

595 REASONS …TO LOVE THIS

Great to see the marvellous 595S take its bow at last weekend’s Autosport International.

I’m LOVING this

We’ve been following the little car’s gestation period over the last couple of years and know full well the efforts, blood, sweat and tears that Bespoke Vehicle Developments’ boss Mark Hill and his partner Shelley have poured into the project.

If it looks familiar that’s because Mark acquired the rights to the 595 Barchetta designed by Professor Peter Stevens in the nineties and marketed for a time by the Dove Motor Company. Originally, it was based understandably enough on a cut-down Fiat 126 platform.

Although visually similar, More >

SUPERB NEW SECURITY MARKING AND VIN SERVICE

Another aspect of Bespoke Vehicle Developments business is their VIN plate stamping and part marking operation. This superb service offers many benefits – not to mention security enhancements – to kitcar owners and manufacturers especially as BVD offers a mobile service too.

They can mark any service – plastic, aluminium, steel etc – with a permanent, indelible dot pen marker so this is potentially great news for trailers and other identification purposes. You can send tell Mark what you require or alternatively he offers a mobile service too.

He can also supply DVLA-approved stamped VIN plates from a selection of templates or More >
