However, even a recommended coolant can be improved upon. DEI TIG Chill Additive is designed to be compatible with all types of coolant and coolant/water mixtures and can even be used with plain water

DEI TIG Chill will:

• increase the thermal transfer of the coolant. • extend the coolant system life by reducing deposits. • reduce cavitation.

With winter coming More >

Very impressed by Carnauba Spray Wax from the marvellously-named, Mr Bling car care.

It’s an effective product good on any painted surface, plastic, metal, chrome, glass or vinyl surface.

An easy-on; easy-off wax that also has the ability to protect surfaces that it’s applied too, while also giving a strong hydrophobic barrier against rain. It beads well. I know because we’ve had lots of rain!

The deep gloss shine was mirror-like and Carnauba Spray Wax is a water-based environmentally-friendly product with no harsh chemical, abrasives or silicones, meaning it’s bodyshop safe.

The formula contains T1 carnauba wax and natural oils that aid that ‘just More >

The traditional upholstery or sail eyelet is used on many applications, from a host of different kitcar models on their hoods and tonneau covers to utility vehicle tarpaulin covers, and especially on boat and yacht sails.

The two-piece eyelets are readily available but how do you fit them? Reach for this new specialist riveting tool (part number 77157) from Gunson.

This is a precision-machined punch and die tool, manufactured in Sheffield. It is a traditional riveting hand-tool, used with a hammer to complete the riveting action. Each piece of the eyelet is placed either side of the pre-cut hole in the material; More >


A couple of emails into the office of late on the Kougar Sports, primarily asking whether the iconic kit is still available. Well, the answer is yes, but more on the present in a moment. Let’s deal with the past first.

Created by ex-Crosthwaite and Gardner engineer, Rick Stevens, of Uckfield and based on Jaguar S-type mechanicals. Stevens came up with the aluminium-bodied prototype in 1976 and was inspired to produce his own car after his old S-type was looking a little tired.

He reasoned that despite the Jag’s body fit for the scrapyard, if he used the sound mechanicals of the More >
