How to trim plastic lamp mounts at an angle
Not all rear panels have vertical surfaces to mount your rear lamps. Our moulded lamp housings offer an easy way to mount your lamps vertically on a sloping rear panel. Here's how to trim them.

1. First make a cardboard template. Draw around the lamp with a magic marker.

4. Mark the cutting line on the moulding - we've used a Tippex pen here.

2. Cut the hole with a sharp knife. Depending on the angle of the sloping rear panel you may have to extend the cut hole a little to an 'Elipse' shape. Trial and error is the best way here - just trim a little at a time...... 5.Trim carefully to the line with snips or strong scissors. Trim in stages, testing the angle against your panel every time. You can always trim a little more off - but you can't put it back on. For final finishing you can level the cut edge by rubbing it on a sheet of 60 grit abrasive paper glued to a piece of flat ply or MDF.

3. ... until the housing sits nicely in the hole at the required angle.

6.Glue a strip of rubber 'U' channel around the edge and you're ready to mount it to your panel..

Small Steering Wheel
I picked up this tiny steering rack last week, I really wanted to get a proper steering setup on my sons Cobra Tot Rod.  This should do the trick. I'm now  looking for a small steering wheel, a ten inch wood rim would be perfect.  If you have one or know where I can get one please let me know. 
Unfortunately this year two of our regular Kit Car shows (Detling and Newark) have been cancelled, leaving us with only three shows on the calendar.  Closer to the time we will be offering show collection for online orders so you can save on delivery cost if you are planning to visit the shows. 
We are now proud to announce that we will soon be stocking a range of Hella lighting products.  These fantastic quality lights are respected all around the world and we have carefully selected a range of products that we think you will all like.  One product that we are sure will be popular is the 90mm Bi-Halogen projector lamp.

POR 15
We are also now a stockist of Por15 Rust converters and Protectors. 
POR-15 works because it chemically bonds to rusted metal and forms a rock-hard, non-porous coating that won't crack, chip, or peel. It keeps moisture away from metal with a coating that is strengthened by continued exposure to moisture.  We also stock their renowned Fuel Tank Sealer and all preparation products.
