A BRILLIANT SHINE FOR DETAILERS!

I really rate the German brand, Sonax’s Xtreme range of car care products. These are aimed more at hardcore detailers. There are some amazing car care companies in Germany such as Menzerna, Scholl Concepts and of course, Sonax.

A product that I often reach for when one of my cars is in need of a pep up and I need to give it some gloss is Sonax Xtreme Brilliant Shine Detailer or ‘BSD’ to its friends! If you ‘stack’ the product i.e. put more than one layer on, you will be completely amazed at the result.

EMMA PEEL? NO, IT’S A PEEL FASTBACK

I’m a big fan of the work of Steve Hall and his small yet bijou team at Hall’s Garage in Bourne, Lincolnshire. Within their stable sits the Tifosi brand of Austin-Healey Sprite based kits that currently features the Rana, Tifosi SS and Jacobs J.E.M.

A new addition is the range is a Sebring Sprite Fastback or rather a replica of the aluminium-bodied version produced by Robert Peel Sheet Metal Works in Kingston-upon-Thames in the sixties. Why Robert Peel? Well, the company’s founders, Fred Faulkner and Alec Goldie were located by a pub called yep, you’ve guessed it, The Robert Peel!

GLOBAL GT

A couple of years ago Tenerife-based GREX Automotive announced that it was to produce a replica of the TVR Sagaris, which the company say is made using original tools and moulds bought after the Smolensky-period TVR ceased trading.

The company will be producing ten Sagaris kits during 2020 and deliveries have already started. The kit is available in four stages coming in at a thrice under €30,000 (about £27,020 at the time of writing).

Power for the GREX GT comes from the GM LS-series starting off at 485bhp, a fitting motor for a chest-beating TVR tribute. Customers can choose between LS3, LS7 More >

THE DARK SIDE

I was out for a walk the other day and got talking to a bloke doing a nice job on cleaning his car (from a safe distance of course!). I always like to see what products other people use on their vehicles.

As it happens he was using some decent products and I was quietly impressed until I saw what he was applying to the faded black bumpers on his car. It smelt like old engine oil and when I challenged him he confirmed that is exactly what it was. He swore by it and reckons it brings the old plastic More >

NATURAL MAGNETISM!

This is a socket set with a difference, new from Laser Tools: it’s a magnetic deep socket set (part number 7783). These are deep sockets (63mm in length), 3/8in drive, seven sockets included (7mm to 14mm), all with a six-point single hex.

They are magnetised, but here is the difference: the magnet is spring-loaded, and travels down the length of the socket. So, when access is difficult and you have to run a nut along a long thread, reach for these magnetic sockets and you won’t lose the nut (how many times has that happened to me?! – Ed).

BAZOOKA JOE IN A BOTTLE!

I’m loving the packaging that Lancashire-based car care company Akira Brand uses on their products while their smells and bright colours appeal to me too.

Take their bubblegum-infused Lush Quick Detailer, which I had the chance to try this week after a reader who is also well into his detailing recommended it.

I always try and follow up when a reader tells me about a good product as tip-offs like that are definitely of interest to others. That’s what we’re here for – to spread the word about good companies and products
