SUPER ‘SUPER SPORTS’ FROM RPS

I’m a big fan of the MG-based conversion kits of RPS Ltd, run by Garry and Julie Hutton. Indeed, I own one of their RPX TF-based conversions and think it is a superb update for the two-seater. They produce innovative and very affordable kit packages that can be bought all-in-one or in stages.

They’ve recently updated the RPX to RPX 500, which features several subtle revisions including restyled bonnet. Not content with that they have just announced the Super Sports for MGF. Although not a replica of the original (of which just two were built in period) it is certainly evocative More >

IT’S A CHILL BLAST

New from Auto Glym is Polar Blast, which is a pH neutral pre-wash that takes you from ‘caked in mud’ to ‘caked in foam’ in the time it takes you to do a lap of your car with a pressure washer.

Once you’ve had your fill of 90’s nightclub nostalgia and your thick, pillowy, foam party has covered every inch of your car; put your feet up (for ten mins max) and sit back in awe of the amazing ‘cling ability’ of Autoglym’s already established and excellent snow foam formula.

As the product gets to work, visibly drawing the larger particles of More >

PURE ANGEL

 

The new Road Angel Pure Speed Camera Detector comes with stunning design and next-generation performance, signalling the biggest leap forward for Road Angel in over a decade. The all-new design pushes the 2.4in sunlight readable TFT display to the edges of Road Angel Pure performance and integrates a 320 x 240-pixel resolution to securely unlock the safety and increased functionality of Pure with ease.

The touch-sensitive buttons of this speed camera detector have been designed for ease-of-use and make it a fit and forget addition to any cockpit. Simply get in, drive and pay attention to the colour-coded signals the screen More >

BIG JACK

Rally Design has added a new 3-tonne trolley jack within its Blackline Tools range.

It has been specifically designed for race car usage – the 75mm minimum height should slide under most spoilers, but will be ideal for kitcar use. It will ‘rocket-lift’ with dual pump technology to 505mm maximum height using just five full pumps.

It has lots of safety features to prevent overloading and over-extending and fully meets TUV, GS, ASME and CE Standards and is very competitively priced at £108.32 inc VAT.

ON THE TABLE

BG Racing’s Large Folding Table is the ideal companion in the garage or workshop. The table features a sturdy 6ft work surface that folds in half for ease of storage and transportation.

A pair of shelves can be purchased separately along with specifically designed Kart Tyre Rails that can be positioned in several different arrangements to suit the user’s requirements.

Weight-rated levelling feet on the bottom of each leg make it quick and easy to achieve a level working surface regardless of the ground the table is standing on.

The BG Racing Large Folding Table is manufactured from high-grade mild steel with a More >

STAG-BASED MUSTANG CONVERSION

New body conversion kit from long-established classic restorers, Shire Motor Services of Wellingborough is this classic Mustang-style body conversion kit. It’s called the Wild Stag GT3.

Created by James Billson, it uses an unusual donor car in the shape of the Triumph Stag and because it is based on that car’s chassis it is IVA-exempt.

According to Howmanyleft, there are still over 5000 Stags on the road, which is a pretty good percentage of the total that was sold between 1970-1978 (approximately 25,000 made).

James has yet to announce prices but with Stag donors fetching £1000 for a scabby one to £2000 for More >

DIY BLASTER

This new and compact sandblast gun from Gunson Tools (part number 77155) fires dry abrasive particles at high speed, quickly removing rust, scale, old paint etc. Ideal for cleaning pitted surfaces, crevices and other hard to reach places, the gun is designed for performance and ease of use.

The gun works with a workshop compressed air supply (recommended operating pressure 90psi) and features a fully adjustable control valve. You can adjust the amount of blast media that flows through the sandblaster and the control valve also gives you the ability to completely restrict the flow of media if you require air More >

I LIKE MOUSSE

Autoglym’s new Wheel Cleaning Mousse could be the coolest thing to happen to wheels since ‘spokey dokeys’ adorned all BMXs in the eighties! Maybe.

There are some preferable processes in car care that us enthusiasts occasionally refer to as a pleasurable, fun or extremely satisfying experience. ‘Wheels’ is not usually it!

Simply spray a light coating of this stuff onto the surface of your alloy and watch it expand into a thick mousse that seeps into all those fiddly nooks and crannies, clinging to the contours and ensuring total coverage.

Once it’s found its way to all the hidden spots and stops expanding, More >
