HIDE AND SEEK

Unhappy with the standard method of attacking leather with aggressive cleaners and then smothering it in sticky oils or waxes that lead to dye transfer and trapped dirt (a process that ultimately leads to the degradation of coloured finishes)? Well, the technicians at CődeClean have created two new products that work in combination to clean and protect leather safely and effectively.

CődeClean’s Leather Cleaner (£7 for 500ml) contains a superior blend of soaps and mild solvents to remove a wide range of dirt and contaminants (including blue dye from jeans), leaving a natural finish and barrier that reduces the likelihood of More >

DRUM ROLL, PLEASE

The top of a 205-litre oil drum is always grubby and dirty, isn’t it? No matter how careful you are, it gets covered in oil and attracts dirt, and is difficult to clean. Laser Tools has the answer! Quick, easy and cost effective: the new Oil Absorbent Drum Top Mats (part number 6033), available now in packs of ten.

Each mat is 550mm in diameter and has die-cut access holes for the filler openings. The material readily absorbs oil but not water-based liquids and each mat will absorb up to a litre of oil before it becomes saturated. Another aid to More >

NO MORE PLATE SPINNING

Now you can check your vehicle’s geometry without the need for ramps or jacks. All you need is a flat floor surface. Just drive straight on to the new B-G ultra-thin EZ Sweep Castor Slip Plates and take your measurements.

With 20 degrees of rotation, the EZ Sweep Castor Slip Plates can measure castor, camber and kingpin inclination angles. The secret to this unique product lies in the use of a PTFE-coated surface, which enables it to slip through the measuring arc without the need of messy grease or bulky bearings.

The plates have been robustly constructed with a stainless steel base More >

MARVELLOUS MILESTONE FOR GARDNER DOUGLAS SPORTS CARS

The National Kit Car Motor Show at Stoneleigh back in 1990, saw Andy Burrows introduce the Gardner Douglas brand to the kitcar market with their very their first model, the GD427 Mk3.

Very soon the GD was gaining much critical acclaim for its smooth, rattle-free road manners, roadholding and general performance. This was all largely due to their refreshing approach with the chassis underpinnings and body structure of their package.

The GD427 also proved itself as a dominant force in racing, with the stiffer, more agile car, so quick and capable through the corners.

However, it is the superlative engineering and road-going aspects More >
