Following the successful launch of MeacoCool in 2019, leading UK air treatment manufacturer Meaco is pleased to announce the launch of a new even quieter, more energy-efficient range of portable air conditioners for summer 2020.

The new series is Meaco’s most energy-efficient range of air conditioners yet, with an Energy Rating of A. By incorporating the new R290 refrigerant, which improves efficiency with better thermodynamics, these air conditioners are also more environmentally friendly. A window kit suitable for sash windows and sliding doors is included to vent hot air and a 1.8m long duct allows any excess heat to be expelled via a window.

If you’re a classic kitcar owner (or a classic CAR owner) this could be what you’re after – Gunson has just introduced a genuine leather, traditionally designed tool roll (part number 77168) that is both practical and stylish – and will look great in the boot of your classic car, or on your workbench.

This is a sturdy tool roll, with strong stitching, reinforced with metal rivets and a buckled strap. It features twelve slots for spanners or screwdrivers (tools not included), plus three useful press-stud secured pockets for small items like screws or fuses.

The tool roll is made from pre-distressed, More >


Oxfordshire-based Krystal Kleen Detail makes some cool car care products and I’d been hearing good things about their Choccy Wash Hi-Foaming Shampoo so I decided to give it a try. Faced with a sand-covered car (how?) the other day I decided to break out the buckets and the Worx Hydroshot and put it to work.

The ‘Choccy’ part of the name gives the clue that there could be chocolate afoot! When you take the cap off the bottle be prepared for the most lovely aroma of finest Belgian milk chocolate. Don’t leave a chocolate milkshake around while using the product as More >


Another new and exciting product from Sealey! Their Solar Panel Range, SSP01, SSP02 & SSP03 are currently on special offer in their Spring 2020 Promotion and with the daylight hours getting longer these are the perfect products.

Each model differs in output, SPP01 – 1.5W, SPP02 – 2.4W and SPP03 – 4.8W. Their amorphous solar panels convert daylight directly into 12V electricity. The advanced technology used means that solar panels require only daylight to generate power.

They are suitable for maintaining the charge in a wide range of batteries and power packs, but their ideal purpose is for batteries stored in boats More >

Great to hear that superb Buckland B3 three-wheeler is scheduled for a comeback in 2020.

Originally created by electronics control engineer Dick Buckland the beautiful little device was out of production for many years until John Wilcox of the Penguin Speed Shop based in Flintshire acquired the project and revised it to make it available in kit form, something that Dick had never done.

Newport-based Buckland (he lived very close to the Llanwern steelworks) was inspired by the Morgan F-Type of the thirties and along with assistance from his friend and first customer, Laurie Weeks. The car first broke cover in 1985 More >


Here’s one for our American readers, I guess, but Summit does happily supply  UK- and European-based customers …

Jaguar V6-into-Mazda MX-5 specialists, Rocketeer announced before Christmas 2019 that in future they would only be focussing on building fully built Jaguar V6-powered restomods in turnkey-only form.

Since then they have been inundated with requests to continue supplying the Rocketeer MXV6 conversion in kit form.

Rocketeer director, Bruce Southey, told me: “Having supplied over seventy kits already, we had perhaps underestimated the enjoyment derived from the self-build process. After careful consideration, we are pleased to confirm that we will continue to support those who wish to purchase the conversion in kit form. We are currently placing orders for future stock so we More >


I’d been hearing good things about Cleanliness, the concentrated pre-wash product from Angelwax so with plenty of time on my hands to play to indulge one of my favourite hobbies – car care products – at the moment I recently put it through its paces during a full detailing session on one of my cars that although only driven for about ten miles in the previous seven weeks seemed to have half of the Sahara Desert on its bodywork!

Simple to use, there’s a definite oven cleaner type smell mixed with a bit of citrus you dilute it in a bucket More >


A bit like smoking a pipe, I think Turtle Wax was a product that your grandad may have used back in the day but perhaps had faded from fashion for a little while. However, Turtle Wax was clearly watching closely what was happening on the car care scene and the arrival of new car care brands and reacted accordingly with some stunningly good products.

In late 2019 they announced their all-new Hybrid Solutions range, which contains five products within it (at the moment as I think a wax for black paint is on the way to the UK) and these could More >
