IT’S ALL ABOUT THE PREP

DEI’s Boom Mat Prep Spray is a simple one-step rust converter and neutralising spray. It converts rust to a tough, long-term protective covering and prolongs the life of any ferrous metal. The spray does not require any major surface preparation. It goes on clear and dries to a black paintable surface. It creates the ideal surface for installing Boom Mat acoustic and heat damping material.

A BLANKET FOR YOUR TURBOCHARGER THIS WINTER!

As the cold nights creep in, there’s never been a better moment to treat your big turbo to a nice new blanket to keep it warm, or cool… depending on how you look at it.

There’s no doubt the tight confines of any engine bay could benefit from slightly less underbonnet heat, particularly if you’re heading along the path of ECU remaps and extra boost.

The sleeve you see here is called a ‘turbo blanket’, and it could save your engine bay from a lot of damage. Turbochargers generate a lot of heat, but a blanket keeps that heat contained, preventing it from spreading throughout More >

A LOT OF BOTTLE

When the driving’s done for the day or you’ve finally finished working on your kitcar there’s nothing more relaxing than enjoying a refreshing bottle of beer (other, less satisfying beverages are available). 

With this in mind, Mini Spares has thoughtfully provided a built in bottle opener on its key fob flash drive memory stick and now the memory stick also now has twice as much storage space as earlier versions. 

The USB connector retracts into the fob when not in use to ensure it isn’t damaged by the keys or loose change in your pocket.

Now you can go to the beer-fridge in More >

BACK IN THE GAME

Back in the fifties and sixties, Duckhams 20w-50 was the engine oil of choice. It was the world’s first multigrade oil that could be used all year round so that there was no need to change from summer to winter grade oils.

Now the legendary green oil is back, with a few improvements on the original 1956 version. It now conforms to API, SE, SF, SG, SH and SJ specifications and is ideal for any classic that requires a 20w-50 oil rather than the modern lighter grades.

It can be used confidently in any engine that was originally recommended to use Duckhams More >

When you’ve just got to finish your kitcar to the very highest standard there’s only really one choice of classic horn for the job, that’s right… a Mountney Classic Horn – resplendent in a tasteful chrome finish with brass screws that won’t tarnish the moment it hits the open road.
