PAINLESS WIRING

A NEWS ITEM AIMED PRIMARILY AT OUR NORTH AMERICAN READERS

A donor car wiring loom won’t do for custom projects like kitcars, street rods and extreme off-roaders.

You need things like more circuits and relays for all of the creature comforts and longer wires so you have enough to connect all of your accessories. Painless Performance Pro Series Wiring Harnesses have you covered.

Available with 23 or 25 circuits, the universal-fit harnesses have extra-long wire for each circuit, allowing you to route the wiring as you wish. You also get front and rear ground harnesses to make grounding your lighting circuits a breeze.

IT’S REACTIVE

Bridging the gap between a traditional wheel cleaner and heavy-duty fallout remover, Reactive Wheel Cleaner is an advanced surface cleanser capable of chemically dissolving brake dust and other ferrous metal contaminants, all the while being gentle enough for regular use on all painted and powdercoated wheels.

Designed to react with the sharp, corrosive metal shrapnel (derived from hot brake dust) often found embedded in wheel finishes, Reactive safely removes these harmful ingrained contaminants by liquifying the particles into the solution, allowing them to be safely rinsed away without scratching.

Reactive also contains a blend of deep-cleaning detergents to quickly remove the harshest More >

95.7 TIMES SEVEN = 670!

Caterham Seven sales grew by a remarkable 41 per cent over pre-pandemic levels last year, with the 670 orders taken in 2021 not only smashing the 442 received in 2019 but beating the marque’s previous best tally of 667.

The record-breaking benchmark was all the more impressive due to the limitations imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, and the lack of limited-edition models launched during the previous twelve months.

With 2017 seeing the release of the highly successful Seven SuperSprint, which sold out in days, 2021’s figure came largely on the back of strong sales of series-production models.

The new Seven 170, and the overwhelmingly More >

IT’S YOUR MAGNETISM!

Magnetic tool and parts holding pads are certainly very versatile and useful – keeping the tools or components in place as you work.

However, Laser Tools reckon you should try this Laser Tools Racing-branded version (part number 8275)! Eighteen super-strong magnets embedded inside the 300 x 210mm nylon pad ensure that even heavy tools or parts are held securely. The pad holds up to 15kg, therefore Laser Tools claim that it will hold a brake disc vertically or upside-down (please don’t try that – ed!)

This magnetic pad ensures that when a ferrous tool or part is placed on it, even when More >

AIN’T GONNA WORK ON MAGGIE’S FARM NO MORE …

The products of the Japanese car care brand, Coating Farm are now available from Slim’s Detailing and I’ve been putting their Alpha Guard Ceramic Coating through its paces.

The product can be used as a standalone coating that is easy to use, gives outrageous gloss and also 9H scratch resistance. Unlike some products of this type you don’t need to use a special applicator block to apply it as all you do is spray it on (a little goes a long, long way, remember) and buff it off with a clean microfibre cloth.

It smells like a mix between petrol and paint More >

CLEAN FUEL EVERY TIME

Keeping fuel clean without unduly restricting flow and pressure is a tough trick, but one that FUELAB seems to have mastered.

Take its line of inline fuel filters as an example. All are machined from billet aluminium with machined internal radii for minimal pressure drop. The filters are available with a choice of filter elements.

The six-micron glassfibre element is compatible with all petrol, diesel and race fuels except nitro-methane and is recommended for carb and fuel injected engines running E85 or methanol. It’s recommended for filters located after the fuel pump.
