SWITCH TO MINI SPARES

This is yet another part that is exclusive to Mini Spares. 

The GAE131 Reversing Light Switch (Remote Type) is designed to fit Mini three and four-synchro gearboxes (except for rod change types which use GAE191).

This switch replaces the plug on the front of the remote-shift transmission case. It is triggered internally by the shift linkage when reverse is selected. 

The Mini Spares GAE131 Reversing Light Switch retails at £30.00 inc. VAT.

This might, at first, sound a little expensive for a switch; there are plenty of cheaper switches on the market purporting to be for 3 and 4-synchro gearboxes (some even have the same part More >

MAIL ORDER OR DIGITAL

All features are brand new and NOT reprints but we have delved into our photo archive, the most extensive and detailed in the industry dating back to the fifties. I’d like to think if I’m looking for an obscure kitcar then I’ll find at least one print in the file…

Why a classic flavour? Well, by public demand really. You are telling me you are liking the archive content we run, dear reader, so we decided to pursue that idea properly. More >

ALCANTARA, LEATHER, VINYL – IT CLEANS THE LOT!

One of my favourite leather and Alcantara cleaners is also one of the most cost-effective.

Koch Chemie Po Pol Star is an effective neutral cleaner with protection formula. It cleans and protects without leaving behind any watermarks. With protection that prevents the parts against becoming dirty again quickly.

Perfect for use on leather, Alcantara, textiles and any other type of soft trim part.

Recommended use: Depending on how much dirt has accumulated, apply a 1:5-1:20 solution with a spray bottle, microfibre mitt or similar, and allow to react for a short time.

Work in carefully with a sponge or microfibre cloth in the direction More >

‘DUCTS’? THEY’RE SEAGULLS!

Merlin Motorsport now stock this very neat Y-PIECE BLOWER FAN SPLITTER from Revotec.

These are ABS moulded plastic designed to slot straight on to a 3in or 4in inline blower fan. You can then connect two ducting hoses to the other side of this splitter to divert air to a different location.

These are ideal for driver cooling – particularly the interiors of kitcars – so the cold air can be directed to two different places inside the cockpit, face and feet for example.

They can also be used in reverse too if you have two inlets of the same size you can direct air More >
