GAMECHANGING ABILITY

Users of dehumidifiers often worry about how their machine will be emptied when the water tank is full and there is no one around to empty it. This is particularly the case when used in a garage, basement or second home, which can be left vacant or unattended for long periods.

Leading British air treatment specialist Meaco has solved this problem with a unique pump accessory designed to work with its new 20L and 25L MeacoDry Arete® dehumidifiers.

The pump is a gamechanger for the user, requiring no expertise to set up and install, and removing the worry and bother of having to empty the water More >

WASABI – PHEW, IT’S HOT!

I’ve been very impressed by the products of Wasabi Car Care (brilliant name!), part of the highly regarded Marells Detailing, a company based locally to TKC Towers in Buxted, East Sussex.

A petit and bijou range of products (about eight in all) includes their excellent Last Touch quick detailer, which has a lovely smell of berries. A clear liquid, it applies well (nice triggers help) and requires a very basic amount of spreading out one panel at a time and then it’s very simple to buff to a high shine.

A true ‘easy-on-easy-off’ detailer if ever there was one. The best part More >

A DAMPED BOXSTER

An interesting piece for owners of Boxster-based body conversion kits, perhaps.

Although it was launched over twenty years ago the Porsche Boxster ‘S’ 3.2-litre 986 is still a great handling and highly desirable sports car. However, it’s quite easy to improve things even further with a GAZ Gold suspension kit.

The Gaz Gold units are both height and damper rate adjustable. Ride height is adjustable through 80mm of adjustment.

The height adjusters have a coarse acme form thread for ease of adjustment and the damper units are black zinc plated to ensure that they remain in good order even after considerable service.
