USE THE RIGHT FASTENERS

When working on high-end, show-quality classic vehicles, kitcars or automotive displays, the fit and finish of the fasteners is just as important as the paint and bodywork.

For example, chrome-plated fasteners can be damaged easily, especially when using standard metal spanners and sockets. That’s why Laser Tools has introduced two specialist non-marring tool sets: the Non-Marring Socket Inserts set (part number 7463) and the Non-Marring Wrench and Pry Bar set (part number 7464).

Kitcars often feature fasteners that can be plated, anodised, chemically passivated or even painted. Lots of care and attention has been put into building and preparing these vehicles, so extra More >

DO YOUR BUTTONS UP

Looking at the latest offerings from Laser Tools, versatility, innovation and unique product development is at the company’s core, and here’s an excellent example: these new Button Connector Pliers (part number 7407) are equipped with an extended flexible cable – and what a difference that makes!

They are designed to quickly remove the button-type quick-connectors found on fuel lines, power steering pipes and other vehicle systems, but the 650mm extended cable means that you can access connectors buried deep in the engine bay, underneath or obscured by other engine-bay components, or otherwise inaccessible to ordinary pliers.

The tool’s specially designed fingers open More >

BRIGHTER LIGHT

A new range of 100 per cent brighter xenon HID upgrade bulbs from Ring, the automotive lighting experts, offers drivers with xenon HID technology fitted on their vehicles a better, safer night time driving experience.

Compared to a standard xenon HID, they put up to 100 per cent extra light on the road, to get more illumination exactly where the driver needs it. This improved visibility makes it easier to see hazards, reduces eye strain, and, when combined with the high colour temperature of xenon HIDs, gives excellent reflections from signs and road markings.

BULLETPROOF CLASSIC MINI HOSES

Mini Spares has noticed that most of the standard rubber coolant hoses that are available seem to have a much shorter life expectancy than you would want. If you’ve ever tried it you’ll know you don’t want to fit radiator hoses to a classic Mini engine that often! The solution was for Mini Spares to develop its own brand and reinforce it with KevlarÒ- the same material that is used in the army’s ballistic vests and helmets. You can see the KevlarÒfor yourself – it’s the white strands visible at the ends of the hoses.

This has extended the life of More >

IT’S REGULATIONS

BLOWING A GALE, LIKE A COMET, A NEW RAGE!

Joining the Comet and Hurricane from Rage Motorsport is an as yet un-named new model, which will follow the Barnsley company’s tried and tested formula of a lightweight buggy with a powerful engine.

Like the Comet R, which is available in kit form the new one also features a Kawasaki ZZR-1400 engine delivering a cool 200bhp meaning that performance will be blistering. I’m told that it will have a name and that pricing will be set within a few weeks.
