Not content with selling one of the biggest ranges of VW parts in the world, Heritage Parts Centre also enjoys giving their parts away for free too!

That’s exactly what happens if you win their online Wishlist competition. This time around the beneficiaries of their generosity were Ian and Sarah Hawcock from Barnsley. Lifelong VW enthusiasts, their current Beetle project has been on the go for ten years.

In fact, Ian, a body and paint technician by trade, originally painted this car back in the late nineties but was never paid. Instead, he got given the Bug a decade later and has More >

A good old car care brand, some of the latest Armor All products are very good indeed. They sent me a bottle of their Glass Cleaner recently so I put that through its paces recently too.

A clear liquid rather than a crème or paste type, it is sprayed on and requires rubbing in with a microfibre cloth. Once it has dried hazy, just buff to a crystal-clear shine with a second, clean microfibre.

It has a decent alcohol content, which means it evaporates quickly and is easy-to-use.

A 500ml spray bottle costs £5.95.

A great product that I spotted at the Race Retro show is The Rollout Cover, designed and produced in the UK, which as the name suggests, is a car cover that, er, rolls out and is a bespoke, handmade product, made in the UK. It’s one of those products that sometimes hits me between the eyes as being absolutely ideal for the specialist car market.

In essence, it’s an ingenious, non-contact car cover that retracts on a metal frame running on a low-profile track, designed to hold the frame in place. To cover and protect your car you simply park in More >


One of the growing number of ‘bleeding’ fall-out removers, these products turn purple when they are activated and react with iron filings and crud on your wheels or bodywork.

The latest product to be launched comes from car care meisters, Autoglym in the form of their brand-new MAGMA.

One of my cars had some very dirty and muddy wheels and at 21in diameter items they gave me a chance to try the product out. It doesn’t smell quite as ‘hair bleachy’ as other similar products but it’s still not a very pleasant smell.

It goes on quite thick and coverage is good via More >
