TITANIUM POWER

New from Scottish car care maestros, Angelwax is Legacy Titanium Ceramic Coating, which unlike a lot of similar sealants is actually very easy to use. Some of these products can leave you needing a chisel to remove.

Legacy doesn’t require time to ‘cure’ using an infra-red lamp like some and once applied it will protect the surface of your vehicle from fallout and crud and makes maintenance much easier while leaving a super glossy finish.

A 30ml bottle (a little goes a very long way) costs £44.99 and is available via www.angelwax.co.uk ENDS.

EASY STEER

Most factory power steering systems were not designed for high-performance use. Aggressive driving combined with upgrades like performance tires and modified steering geometry put a lot of stress on the system, especially from high fluid temperatures.

That’s where Turn One Steering comes in. It makes power steering pumps, steering boxes, and other components that improve steering feel and response for street-driven and race vehicles. Look under the hoods of most NASCAR rides, Formula Drift, and Trans Am Series cars and chances are you’ll find a Turn One pump or box.

Turn One Street Series pumps are brand-new, USA-made GM Type II pumps More >

STERILE ENVIRONMENT

WAI’s STERI-7 vehicle sanitiser car kits are continuing to prove popular and are now being rolled out across the WhoCanFixMyCar.com network.

After gaining positive feedback from its network of garages, the repair and maintenance comparison site has become an official distributor of WAI Steri-7 250ml retail bottles and sanitisation kits in the automotive industry and is able to secure orders on a garage’s behalf.

This gives garages throughout the UK the opportunity to purchase the kits to protect themselves and their customers when carrying out work, but also to sell the retail bottles to the end-user to keep their vehicle sanitised.

Excuse me for this one but the knob diameter is 23mm and looks like a bargain at £13.20 inc VAT. More information from www.carbuilder.com ENDS.

The company can make you a one-off (or treat yourself!) in a variety of material and to match your car priced from £150. What an ideal gift for someone in your life who has a special car?
