KEEP HEAT AT BAY

Protecting vital engine components from heat is tough, especially when it comes to fitting into all of the nooks and crannies of an engine bay.

This heat barrier also features an adhesive backing for simple installation on uneven and tight spaces and can be easily trimmed to suit the installation space. The Mishimoto Aluminium Silica Heat Barrier is available in two sizes, 304.8 mm x 609.6mm and 609.6 mm x 609.6mm to fit More >

ROCKETEER CHANGES DIRECTION

The brilliantly named Rocketeer, who over the last two years have sold over 70 of their Jaguar engine conversion kits for Mazda MX-5, is shifting direction slightly.

Rocketeer co-founder, Bruce Southey told me: “With a view to maintaining the highest quality and delivering on our original vision of building tactile, visceral, analogue sportscars, we are going to focus our business on fully built resto-mod cars and turnkey conversions in future. Engine kit sales will cease at the end of 2019. However, we will, of course, continue to support any self-build projects currently in progress.
