WD40 ADD FLEXIBILITY

If you thought that WD40’s Smart Straw idea was a good concept, then you might well like WD40 Flexible (aka EZ-Reach in North America).

It’s claimed to be the first of its kind as the its flexibility takes the ‘straw’ concept a stage further. It’s a bendable tube that keeps its shape and can its 360-degree valve means it can be used upright or upside down!

WD40 is a go-to product for automotive enthusiasts and I don’t think I’ve ever visited a kitcar owner of manufacturer who hasn’t had at least one tin on the shelf of their garage or workshop.

NEW HEAD FOR MGB

Webcon has announced that it has just added a five-port MGB cylinder-head to its range of superlight aluminium cylinder-heads.

The Webcon head has been precision manufactured from lightweight LM25 aluminium to give around a 60 per cent weight saving over the original cast iron head.

This material also provides superior heat dissipation qualities and is significantly easier to modify; furthermore, unlike the cast iron head, it will not crack.

Webcon supplies the head with valve guides already fitted and with hardened valve seats to make it suitable for use with unleaded fuel.

The new MGB five-port aluminium head is available with or without valves More >

MODELS FOR COLLECTORS

Loving the new limited edition series of 1:43 scale models in Corgi’s Vanguards series, which are aimed at the collector.

Within the range there’s everything from a Ford Anglia to a Volkswagen Beetle. Each one comes with a certificate detailing the respective model’s history.

I have already bought the Ford Capri Mk3 in Tibetan Gold as that was the first Capri I ever owned, while the Cortina Savage 3-litre will probably be next on my list.

Latest addition is Don ‘the father of the MGB’ Hayter’s MGB V8 Roadster, which really is a lovely thing with lots of detail.

Prices range from around £28.49 More >

SLICK WAX

I’m a big fan of German car care brand Koch Chemie and their ProtectorWax is an innovative, high-tech, conserving wax which sets new standards in matters of protection and durability.

It provides an extreme deep gloss, long-term water repellency (lotus effect), easy-to-clean performance, and vehicle drying without micro-beading.

Polyfunctional reactive components and high-quality care components, which bond with the surface as a network, guarantees a long-lasting, high-gloss protection for paintwork and improved visibility on glass during rain (beading).

With regular use, ProtectorWax improves the gloss and protection layer, covers fine scratches on rubber and plastic parts, and protects soft-top convertible fabrics from fading.
