IT’S POLISH; NOT A SECRET

CödeClean, makers of premium car care products, has announced their unique and highly anticipated, Ultra Fine Polish.

This paint cleanser, three-years in the making, incorporates a moderate level of fine abrasives. Ingeniously though, as the polish is used (preferably by machine), the abrasive particles within the compound break down into increasingly smaller elements, giving a finer polishing action the longer you use it.

These clever active ingredients mean customers are only required to purchase one polish, as opposed to a selection of different polishing cutting compounds and can tackle even the most difficult paintwork with just a single application, thus saving time, More >

PEDAL POWER ALTERNATIVE

Someone sent me some info on what is one of the most innovative devices I’ve seen for ages. It’s called the Veloschmitt, fusion of the Messerschmitt Kabinroller microcar from the fifties and the nation’s new found love of taking to a bicycle…
