SEBRING – BACK WITH A BANG

Really great to see Sebring International up and running and in the more than safe hands of Sophie Fisher and Phil Overall. We’ve got a feature done, which will appear in the forthcoming July/August issue of TKC Mag, and we spent an enjoyable couple of hours with them at their Cheltenham base.

If you’re interested in motorsport, particularly, the British Touring Car Championship, then Phil’s name might be familiar as over a 30-year period he’s worked with most of the leading teams and drivers, starting with John Fitzpatrick right up to current day pedallers such as Jason Plato and Colin Turkington.

FUSS-FREE RE-FUELLING

We regularly get sent new-fangled ‘gonna-change-the-world’ products, with most of them pretty rubbish and/or un-necessary. However, sometimes, a device comes along that makes you wonder why no-one thought of it before.

Such a product is Pump Pal, a simple but nicely-made product that keeps the fuel pump trigger in its engaged position, taking pressure off your grip while you refuel your vehicle. If you travel in Europe, you’ll note that petrol stations there treat us like adults and keep the pump’s trigger locking mechanism in place. In the UK, however, it’s removed…

Pump Pal acts as the trigger lock, in a simple and effective More >

IF IT’S GOOD ENOUGH FOR NATO…

The RNHT48 Rivet Nut Hand Tool, launched by MEMFast (Make Ends Meet Limited) four years ago, has now been approved for use by all NATO affiliated organisations worldwide.

This very robust tool, made in the UK, offers great flexibility – it installs M4 to M10 rivet nuts in steel, stainless steel, aluminium and brass by using a simple ‘spin’ action. There is no stroke to set, it is much tougher and easier to use than conventional hand-pliers and is much more compact than lever type tools.

The extremely vigorous vetting and testing process operated by NATO and its affiliated organisations took more More >

REGENERATION WITH RALLY DESIGN

If an old lead acid battery is left uncharged for a long period there is often truth in the old adage ‘that old batteries don’t die they go to sleep’.

This isn’t always the case, of course, and we’ve occasionally and miraculously regenerated a number of batteries in the totalkitcar workshop, although the chances are improved with a new product from Rally Design – .Pacma 5000MA Automatic Battery Charger.

It features the following charging stages -

Step 1 – Removes harmful sulphate deposits

Step 2 – Gently starts charging battery

Step 3 – Charges to 80 per cent

Step 4 – Top charges, vehicle can be More >

TIN WORM KILLER

Rust is a fact of life. To beat it you need to treat it with a product that′s tried, tested and trusted to do the job. Jenolite has been round for 75-years and removes rust from just about anything and is quick and easy to use.

The newly rust-free metal can then be painted between 30 minutes and 24 hours after application, depending on the Jenolite product you choose. Selecting the right product for the right use is important to ensure ease of application and maximum benefits.

Rust really is bad news. When water meets iron two things happen almost immediately. First, More >
