Classic Mini meisters, Mini Spares has just released their C-ARA5000, alloy radiator to fit any year/model of classic Mini.

Earlier versions by other manufacturers used a header tank that was 10mm wider, and biased towards the inner wing, which would foul 1990-2000 cars where the engine was ½in farther forward.

No such problems with the Mini Spares version, though.

This alloy lightweight high-efficiency radiator designed exclusively by Mini Spares with a hole for a screw-in sender unit as fitted from 1990 on.

Boom Mat, the acoustic and thermal division of Design Engineering, Inc. (DEI), has now introduced an easy and cost effective way to reduce road noise while protecting your vehicle against moisture build-up.

Moisture from condensation, snow mixed with road salt from your boots – or in the case of convertibles and sportscars, rain from a sudden shower – can work down into the carpet underfelt and eventually cause rust in the steel floorpan.

Boom Mat’s Heat Moldable Sound and Moisture Barrier addresses these problems. More >
