GREAT GLASS CLEANER

Possibly the best glass cleaner I've ever used

For years I’ve been looking for a glass cleaner that does what is says. There’s no shortage of products out there, for sure. Most of them will do a job, although some leave streaks or are hard to remove leaving unsightly marks on the glass.

I don’t think I expect too much from a glass cleaning by hoping for it to clean glass without fuss. A product that arrived on my desk recently for appraisal is Invisible Glass and my initial tests have shown it to be the glass cleaner I’ve been searching for.

The high quality new Vista Pro flat blades come with between three and six adaptors as required. The initial 12-strong More >

COOL MINI

Whenever certain Classic Mini parts become hard to obtain Mini Spares often manufacture their own replacements, and when they do they take the opportunity to examine the design

and the materials used to see if improvements can be made.

This was the case with their new lightweight aluminium, high efficiency, radiator designed exclusively by Mini Spares for improved fitment, rigidity and appearance.  The side-fitting radiator has been designed to fit all standard Minis and with this in mind the drain plug has been fitted at an angle so it can take a sender unit, as required, for later engines – 1990-on.

THERMAL PROTECTION WINTER IS COMING!

If you are adding extra wiring to your kitcar, or even just adding an accessory to your classic car or tin-top, you need to consider protecting it against heat damage from the exhaust or turbocharger, if you have one fitted.

The same goes for fuel lines. If you are, say, converting a classic to EFi or fitting twin fuel pumps to a trackday car, you’ll need to keep it safe and cool to prevent vapour lock.

DEI has released a new heat protection product – Ultra Sheath MA. The ‘MA’ stands for Molten Aluminium and the company has developed a unique process More >

SMALL BORE CYLINDER

The 0.5in size master cylinder is ideal for kitcar or Formula racecar usage when fitted with a four-pot caliper using 1⅜in pistons and less than a 4:1 pedal ratio.  Previously, most customers have used 0.625in size, but this is really too big to give enough power and the all-important velocity ratio when using the 0.5in bore size is much better.

In the past, 0.5in-bore master cylinders have been available but usually at high cost, but Rally Design’s new version costs just £25.80 inc VAT.
