CARPETRIGHT?

If you’ve got a car with a soft top I think you’ve almost definitely know about the superb products of Renovo International. Their range enlivens, revives and maintains the condition of your car’s hood.

A faded, baggy old soft top can let down the appearance of an otherwise good car, but Renovo can help there too by re-colouring to an as-new condition.

Exciting news for 2016 is the arrival of not one but FIVE new products from Renovo International and I am sure they’re going to become equally essential as the company’s hood range.

Great to see the ‘new’ Aries Motorsport at last weekend’s Autosport International show.

Based around a steel spaceframe, Polaris describes the Slingshot® as a three-wheeled motorcycle and although it’s not a ‘leaning trike’ it does More >
