Meet Eden and Bliss, possibly, in my view two of the nicest air fresheners and odour eliminators known to man. They come from the good folk at Angelwax and although devised primarily for car use and also for sorting out stinky carpets and the like, I’ve been liberally spraying them about the garage and the house.

Both are really pleasant, and I don’t have a favourite. The fragrance lasts a long time which is good although bizarrely it’s normally those horrible, acrid ones that don’t go away!

Bliss features a black plum and is inspired by a candle in Angelwax’s Annie Lane More >


As soon as I opened the bottle of Akira Brand’s Glacier Snowfoam I was hit by a lovely smell of cherry drops.

A 10:1 dilution rate and pour into a foam cannon giving the bottle a quick shake to agitate the product fully.  You can then watch as the foam will literally engulf your car. A decent dwell time of seven minutes means that the product has time to start lifting dirt and crud.

The product seems to be particularly easy to rinse while it also dispersed from my driveway very quickly too. I like the fact that there was no marring More >

DEI’s new Motorcycle Leg Shield is designed to prevent leg burns from hot exhausts, thus keeping riders safe and pain-free (these will be good for kitcars with side-exiting exhausts, of course).

The universal sized 8in x10in shields feature a heavy-duty outer shell with an insulated inner layer. They slip on and off easily and are made to last.

DEI’s Motorcycle Leg Shields simply go around the leg and fasten with easy-to-use hook-and-loop straps. They are fully adjustable and large enough to fit over leathers and riding gear. They are ideal for road use but are tough enough for the most extreme riding More >

Traditionally, adjusting the fuel pressure on an EFI system using an in-rail regulator has involved replacing the original fixed rate pressure unit with a higher pressure fixed unit.

Finding the optimum pressure meant having to experiment with different units, but now Webcon has a better answer.

Webcon part WFR060 is a superb quality, in-rail, 0-5 bar adjustable regulator that simply replaces the existing fixed pressure unit and allows the user to accurately set the pressure to the most suitable level with just one unit.

The item is available now from stock and priced at £83.18 inc VAT.

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.

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!

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 >
