LIKE MELTED BUTTER ON YOUR CAR

If you don’t really ‘get’ quick detailer sprays and much prefer a more beefier product, then Carnauba Gloss from Autobright could be of real interest.

It has a thick crème consistency and contains, as the name suggests, a high level of carnauba wax which gives you a very wet-look shine. A similar type of product, I guess, to Adam’s Buttery Wet Wax, Chemical Guys’ Butter Wet Wax and Carbanuba, which have all become a very popular sector.

It is very easy to use and is formulated using the latest technology its unique blend of cutting-edge polymers, resins and natural carnauba and its More >

GLEAMING LIKE A MIRROR

 

Don’t under-estimate The Urban Detailer brand. Their products are affordable and work really well. Here’s one that I tried recently that does exactly as it says on the tin, so to speak.

Their Mirror Finish Carnauba Spray Wax gives a huge level of gloss – the sort of result that looks like you have just chucked a bucket of melted butter over, in fact.

It does need a good shake pre-use to agitate the active ingredients. As well as how a product performs, I do like a nice, pretty colour while smell is also important to me. Mirror Finish is a pleasing More >

INSULATION

New from Sealey is this AK7943 – ten-piece Insulated Socket Set. This is another new addition to their fully comprehensive range of Premier Hand Tools.

The sockets and accessories in this set are made of hardened and tempered Chrome Vanadium Steel and each component is fully insulated to VDE and EN 60900 standards to protect from electric shocks up to 1500V DC and 1000V AC.

KEEPING YOU CONNECTED

HIGH SHINE

I’m a big fan of the products made by the micro-car care company (and I mean that in the biggest and most complimentary way possible), SiRamik.

I really like and enjoy using their SC Mist ‘topper’ or quick detailer and just lately I have been getting some great results on a GRP-bodied car with their Praefulgeo Spray Sealant.

The product uses silicon resins within its formulation and it really is ridiculously easy to use. An average size car can be coated in around 20-minutes.

It can give up to three months protection but the real wild cards in Praefulgeo’s favour are its gloss More >

BEATING DRUMS

These high output heavy-duty industrial drum fans are built for long term industrial, commercial and agricultural use. An ideal solution for fast, efficient cooling in large spaces!

These models produce an excellent amount of air-flow, up to 222mᶟ per minute, allowing large areas to be cooled quickly and efficiently. There are two fan sizes to choose from, ranging from a 24in to a whopping 30in!

All models have a tilt range of 300° and are mounted on large rubber wheels so the fan can be positioned easily and transported to wherever it is required.

Main features of the range include:

Heavy-duty gauge steel guard, More >

SHINE AND SEAL IT

Lurking within the German Sonax Xtreme range are some great products. The most ‘obvious’ one, I guess, is the superb Brilliant Shine Detailer, but there’s another I really like called Spray & Seal.

It’s a fast and effective and dead easy-to-use liquid sealant that is effective on paintwork, chrome and plastics. The formulation incorporates what Sonax claim is Unique Polymer Technology that they say provides up to three months protection.

It couldn’t be easier to use. You just spray it onto your still wet vehicle after you’ve washed it and rinse off, then using a good quality drying towel, wipe to a More >

DARK SIDE OF THE MOON!

Oooh I say!

I’m really loving the sound of a brand-new three-wheeler kit that hails from ex-Ricardo and current Prodrive engineer, Rob Moon.

A modern design, the Darkside (there’s a superb play on words if you consider the creator’s surname!) is a single-seater that according to Moon is totally dedicated to sheer driving enjoyment, with no compromises.

Power will be monstrous and comes from Suzuki Hayabusa which when you consider that the car weighs in at 275kg. Even in entry-level ‘SS’ spec it still packs 180bhp. Rob is talking turbochargers and intercoolers for models higher up the range!

What I think is rather cool. More >

NOTHING TO DO WITH SOFT WHIP ICE CREAM

Japanese brand, Soft 99 has won many friends in the UK with their excellent paste waxes led by Fusso Coat, which has really established itself on the car care scene.

The company offers a full range of products – some of them still a little ‘left-field’ for UK enthusiasts such as their Smooth Egg shampoo! However, it’s their paste wax that does the trick for us, thus far.

Their new Speed & Barrier Spray Wax is said to be a liquid version of their Fusso Coat and is described as having a colour tinting formula that adds high gloss to your car’s More >
