TWIST AND DRY

I do like a nice drying towel. I truly believe they make a huge difference when washing a car. I’ve tried loads of them and believe me most of them are truly garbage. There are some good ones though and my hitherto two go-tos have been Car Pro’s Boa Constrictor XL and Chemical Guys’ Woolly Mammoth. Excellent.

However, when someone recommended Meguiar’s new Duo Twist drying towel I had to give it a go as they were raving about it. A decent size at 50cm x 90cm this 1200gsm marvel is produced from 87 per cent polyester and 13 per cent More >

REMOTE WORKING

The Laser 8653 key fob and remote-control tester (part number 8653) has been designed to allow the user to test the signal output from automotive key fobs and infra-red controllers.

Very easy to use: just switch on the tester then hold the key fob or remote control against the signal panel on the tester and press the fob button – the signal frequency is displayed on the tester’s screen.

Applications include automotive key fobs, garage door remote controls, TV and air More >

A FINE SINGER!

The British Motor Museum is delighted to be welcoming a new car into its collection – a Singer Le Mans. Not only is this car an ideal fit for the Trust’s collection, it is also a fabulous gift to the Museum in its 30th Anniversary year – and marks the launch of an exciting new partnership with The Patrick Foundation.

This new working relationship between the two charitable trusts is meant to be. Both charities can trace their roots directly to the car-building heritage of the Midlands, and both are dedicated to preserving the legacy of the motor industry in Britain.

GET THE POWER

If your vehicle’s electrical load exceeds the amperage capacity of your alternator, you’re asking for trouble. The extra amperage draw created by a high-power audio system, race electronics, lighting, etc. can cause an electrical system to literally melt from the inside out.

Powermaster has a pretty simple method for choosing the right-size alternator for your vehicle: • Make a list of your vehicle’s electrical components/accessories • Determine the amperage draw for each and add them together to determine the total draw/load • Select an alternator that delivers more amperage at idle than the total system draw

Once you know how many alternators More >
