IT’S GOOD TO LOOK BACK!

B-G Racing has drawn on its extensive race experience and introduced a pair of universal wide-angle mirrors that are perfect for kitcar use given that rear view can be iffy. The convex glass provides a wide field of vision to give you the best view of what’s behind you.

The mirrors simply fasten to a rollcage using the bolt-on brackets provided for a secure fitment that will not vibrate loose. All brackets are slotted to provide a wide range of adjustment and are secured to the mirror using two wing knobs that allow for simple adjustment by hand.

The mirrors are available More >

COOLING AN ISSUE IN HOT WEATHER? GIVE THIS STUFF A TRY

The summer in the UK might be short but the hot weather can certainly do some damage to your vehicle’s engine if you don’t keep your cooling system in good shape.

Fortunately, the solution is simple. Just add a bottle of DEI Radiator Relief™ to your coolant and your vehicle’s operating temperature will be reduced by up to 30°F the maker’s claim. (16.66° Celsius).

Engine wear will be minimised, the temperature gauge needle will stay away from the red section when sitting in summer traffic jams and you won’t be bothered by an overheating radiator ruining your day out.

ONE STOP CAR CARE SHOP

Slim’s Detailing is one of my favourite outlets for car care stuff, with no fewer than 48 brands stocked including Britemax, Poorboy’s World, Menzerna, GTechniq and CarPro, while they are also main distributors for Chemical Guys, Presta, InstaFinish, Malco and Wolfgang.

Whenever I go to the US I spend far too much time in the many car care stores, which are my idea of a toy-shop. They do these types of retail outlets well in the States, but they aren’t so well-known here in the UK.

Well, Slim’s Detailing has a shop to rival the best American outlets and when I’m in More >

NOT JUST FOR SAUCEPANS!

When Carol presented me with a couple of brass saucepans she’d picked up for a song at a local charity shop, I was aghast.

She reckoned that because I had loads of car care stuff and metal polishes it would be easy for me to bring them up nicely and take them back to a glossy finish. They were in a terrible state, not only un-cared for but also dirty and caked in grease.

I tried a couple of my regular metal cleaning products and it didn’t look good. I figured I’d have to get the Dremel out but then I remembered More >
