‘WE’RE OFF TO SEE THE BLIZZARD, THE WONDERFUL BLIZZARD OF OZ…’

Blizzard Snow Foam is a touchless pre-wash offered by vehicle care brand Power Maxed as part of its valeting range.

The Snow Foam product is a surface cleaner, a product used in the pre-wash stage of the valeting process to remove large chunks of dirt, grit and other contaminants from the surface prior to getting a little more ‘hands-on’. If these contaminants remained on the surface, micro-scratches and swirls could appear on the paintwork after a hands-on wash.

Power Maxed’s Blizzard Snow Foam is designed to be diluted 33:1, give or take depending on water hardness, and applied through a foam lance, More >

WHAT’S THAT SONG TITLE BY THE MARVELLOUS AND UNDER-RATED BAND ‘BUDGIE’? IN THE GRIP OF A TYRE-FITTER’S HAND!

Locking vice-grip pliers are always useful but sometimes you just need a little bit extra persuasion, especially with rusty and corroded parts. These new locking pliers from Laser tools (part number 7005) have a slide-hammer built in. What a difference this makes!

The tool is a high-quality and very robust set of vice-grip pliers, which is connected to a useful length slide hammer (370mm). It offers all the advantages of both tools, the versatility and gripping power of the vice-grip pliers, added to the power and control of a slide hammer.

You will find this a tremendously useful tool in the workshop. More >

QUALITY BIT OF KIT

Produced from high-quality aluminium with an elegant black anodised finish, the B-G Racing Steering wheel spacer is designed to bring the steering wheel closer to the driver for improved steering input and driver comfort.

The spacer adaptor comes complete with fixing screws, has a depth of 12.5mm and is multi-drilled for both 6x70mm and 6x74mm PCD bolt patterns to accommodate the majority of aftermarket steering wheels, thus enabling cross-compatibility between hub kits and steering wheels with either 6x70mm or 6x74mm PCD patterns.

For example: It would allow a user to fit a MOMO/Sparco/OMP/Simoni Racing/Mountney M-Range steering wheel to a Nardi/Personal hub kit More >

For instance: The attractive ‘Lug Nuts’ look – which came from the Japanese tuning scene – is easily achieved with a LugNuzzCover set, without having to change the wheel fixings. The colourful aluminium sleeves simply attach to the existing wheel bolts and are then held in place More >

WAM DB3-INSPIRED CLASSIC TO RETURN SOON

Popped in to see Grandstand Coachworks recently. The Wiltshire-based classic restoration company now has the ex-Bill Monk WAM K3 under their control and is busy preparing their first example for launch this summer.

Bill sold the project after deciding to retire and his Aston DB3-inspired kit is a real peach. It’s based around BMW mechanicals and although Grandstand will be making some changes they are keen not to go too far away from Bill’s template.

Only fully-built examples will be available with prices yet to be set although bodies should be available in GRP or aluminium.
