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 >

GIVE THE GLOSS A BOOST

Autobright is a well-established brand on the UK’s car care scene although I still feel don’t get the recognition that they deserve.

Take their Gloss Boost, which is a quick detailer or ‘topper’ of the highest order. In addition to paint it’s a great all-rounder as you can safely use it on plastic, glass, rubber and even your wheels, which makes it very versatile and cost-effective.

A proper ‘spray and wipe’ which will enhance your levels of gloss greatly. A 500ml bottle costs just £7.99.

Exciting times for the brand as founder Geoff Hare has recently teamed up with an American chemist to More >

AUTOTUNE – STILL DOING US PROUD

BUILD ONE OF THESE. YOU’LL LOVE IT!

Along with Tornado Sports Cars, the Taylors (Anthony and Carolyn) at Autotune are the longest-serving kitcar company still in the same ownership. These days, their son Richard is pretty much at the helm on a day-to-day basis but his parents are still at the ‘shop’ most days of the week.

A missive from Carolyn is always welcome and this week she wrote to me thus:

“I thought that since I have just come into work this week after a rather long but sunny holiday, I would like to announce to the world that we are here, More >

THESE SUDS ARE SUPER!

Car care meisters, Autobright claim that their Super Suds shampoo wears a cherry fragrance, which in my view makes it elixir from the angels. However, unless I’m mistaken it is actually cherry bakewell and that moves it into a completely new level of attraction for me.

Back to the foam and the orange-hued liquid delivers a huge amount of foam which is great as is the dwell time of the product which clung onto to the surface of my RPX for nearly ten minutes. That car had lots of caked-on crud flung along its flanks and Super Suds got rid of most of More >

A GREAT ONE FOR KITCAR DRIVERS

Poor road conditions, sharp objects cutting the tyre, valve stem or tyre bead leakage, high temperatures, and over-inflated tyres can all lead to a flat tyre. Therefore, it is important that motorists have a quick and easy fix to hand, which is why Ring Automotive has brought the RTK4 Flat Tyre Repair Kit to market.

The kit helps to get the driver back on the road within ten minutes and includes a 12V air compressor offering 0-90PSI /6.5BAR, and RTS450 Flat Tyre Sealant to place over a puncture when faced with a flat tyre.

The tyre sealant can also be purchased separately, More >

A NICE BIT OF URBAN DETAILING

I love the brand name of this go-ahead little car care brand from East London. They really are the Urban Detailing company!

It all sounds a bit cottagey but don’t be fooled. They have a real following and their products are extremely good. Take their Urbanize Quick Detailer that I had the chance to try recently.

The first thing that grabs is the lovely purple colour although the explosion of bubblegum is the next thing that hits. It seems to be a thicker liquid than most quick detailers, a bit like the also excellent Sonax Brilliant Shine Detailer, in fact.

I love the More >

NOT THAT SORT OF ROLL

Gunson has just introduced a new waxed canvas, traditionally designed tool roll (part number 77166) that is both practical and stylish — and will look great on your workbench or rolled up in the boot of your kitcar. This is a sturdy tool roll, with strong stitching, and two flexible leather tie-straps to keep all your tools secure.

This is a good, usefully large tool roll that features fourteen pockets for spanners or screwdrivers (tools not included) and can also be used as a mat to stop the tools rolling away while you’re working.

It’s perfect for storing those essential tools needed More >
