A MEANS TO AN END

Not all hose ends are created equal, especially when it comes to dealing with modern alcohol-laced street gas and oxygenated race fuel. Fresh from the 2016 PRI Show, Fragola’s EZ Street Hose Ends are designed for use with today’s fuels—including E85, E98, and other ethanol/methanol blends—that can ruin ordinary hose ends.

EZ Street hose ends have a single nipple hose attachment and double Viton® O-rings for secure, leak-free connections. That helps eliminate fuel line permeation, which causes excessive fuel smell.  The hose ends feature a double-swivel design, making it easy to clock the fittings to the proper orientation on custom installations.

GET DRIED OUT

Preventing damp and the build-up of moisture can often be remedied by simply opening a window. But in unheated spaces, such as a garage with valuable cars and bikes, this is not an option.

One of the biggest worries for many vehicle owners is how to keep their garage dry in the winter months to avoid damage to upholstery from the damp, cold British winter. Nothing is worse than returning after the winter, or even just a few weeks, to be welcomed to a musty smell, which is an indication of a damp or mould problem. Simply opening a window is More >

The module plugs into the vehicle’s OBDII port and wirelessly sends inputs from the More >

LIGHTS FOR RUNNING?

Better Car Lighting is well-known for their innovative solutions to er, better car lighting.

Cars with pop-up headlights might have helped aerodynamics but that perceived benefit was frequently offset by having side-lights mounted way down low, meaning they were very inefficient as a result.

Better Car Lighting’s solution is a discreet daytime running light system that features a special LED light unit that is just 5mm thick with a diameter of 29mm.

It connects up via an adaptor that replaces the original bulb and is many times brighter than standard, every time the ignition is switched on.

The kit is comprehensive and very easy-to-fit More >
