WHO’S GOT MY STAPLER?

Due to the high costs associated with the replacement of plastic panels (bumpers, inner wings, headlamp bodies, engine covers, motorcycle bodywork, etc), this rechargeable, cordless plastic repair kit (part number 92549) was developed to repair small to medium-sized damage that could render a panel or part unusable.

Thin plastic parts can be welded due to the applied heat being contained in a small area. This plastic welding tool is particularly convenient and versatile as it is cordless and powered by a lithium-ion battery (2400mAh) which is rechargeable via a convenient USB port on a PC, laptop, power bank or USB adaptor.

A very warm welcome to totalkitcar online … I love spending time in my photo archive. Much like I do with cooking and playing the guitar, I find it therapeutic not to mention a great reminder of days gone by.

Welcome to totalkitcar online

Easy to get a bit melancholic too as some days all I seem to land on is images of former good friends who are no longer with us, although the photo invariably reminds me of sharing happy times with them.

Of course, Carol doesn’t really ‘get it’. She reckons I hide in there and waste too much time looking at old More >

ROAD LEGAL TIPO 184

The boys and girls at Dowsetts Classic Cars in Hertfordshire have been with further developments on the excellent Mazda MX-5-based Tipo 184 kit inspired by the iconic Alfa Romeo 158.

The subject of a TV series devised and presented by Ant Anstead, there’s also a single make race series for the car organised by the BRSCC.

The company has been working on a roadgoing version and just before Christmas the demonstrator passed its IVA test.

It, therefore, now joins the wonderfully quirky list of road-legal single-seaters.

Starter kits cost £14,490 inc VAT and consist of all the major bespoke components required for your Tipo184 More >

SEND A CABLE

This neat stainless-steel adaptor connects to the speedometer cable output drive to allow a Ford electronic speedometer sensor to be fitted to an older style gearbox (such as a Rocket or Type 9 gearbox).

The adaptor is also compatible with many other makes of sensors that use an M18 x 1.5 thread: for example, Vauxhall, Fiat, VW, etc.

Order as part number REVT9-A at £20 inc VAT with further details from 0208 554 2281 or visit www.burtonpower.com ENDS.

WHY HASN’T ANYONE THOUGHT OF THIS BEFORE?

 

I reckon that these new GRP cam cover wall art will be a hit with kitcar enthusiasts. GS Escorts has produced ‘replicas’ of Cosworth YB, Lotus Twink, BDA and BDG cam covers.

Seeing this press release it did make me wonder why no one has done this before. You can choose between blue, green, red or black for the Cossie YB or blue and black for Twink and BDA.

I guarantee I’ll see a few of these on garage walls in the coming months! A snip at £50.
