Historic driving glasses
Tuesday, 22 July 2014 14:07

Historic driving glassesThanks to some much needed summer sunshine, having a pair of sunglasses available in your truck is essential. If you are looking for a good pair, then choosing a pair from Serengeti seems a good choice as the glasses usetechnology initially developed to be incorporated into premium car windscreens. This is said to selectively filtrate the light spectrum and enhance the ‘driving’ colours, red, green and yellow. The objective was to produce a safer windscreen with the highest clarity and superior definition that would allow the driver to see and react to driving hazards such as brake lights and traffic signals more quickly. As there are strict regulations regarding the degree of light filtration in car windscreens and windows, the technology was instead used to create Serengeti, which the company claims produces ‘the world’s finest driving sunglasses’. They are available as prescription glasses, so check with your optician or call 0208 391 4700.

Exhausting business
Tuesday, 15 July 2014 00:00

Exhausting businessThe Isuzu D-Max is making quite an impression in the British Cross Country Championship, as well as on many building sites around the UK. As they say, motorsport improves the bread, and it is now possible to buy a rally proven road-legal exhaust system from Milltek. Based around 70mm non-magnetic stainless steel tube, and designed, developed and fabricated in Milltek’s Derbyshire factory, the D-Max system can either be ordered as a half system for those looking to get the style and sound, but who wish to leave their DPF and catalyst in place. Or, for those seeking outright performance, a full catalyst and DPF delete option is also available, which is claimed to offer considerably more power and torque in the process. This latter option will need new ECU software or a full engine remap. If you are considering this, the best idea is to check things out directly with the guys at Milltek.

Boom, boom Jeep
Tuesday, 08 July 2014 00:00

Boom, boom JeepJeep Wranglers are best when open to the elements, that’s when you really enjoy yourself. Of course, there are times when the roof needs to be fitted and that’s when you realise that things can get a little loud, especially on a long motorway drive. The answer to this could well be a Sound Deadening Headliner kit from the experts at Boom Mat. Made from high quality marine grade acoustical foam that resists mould and mildew while insulating outside heat or cold. It’s actually the same heavy-duty material that is used in off-road and military vehicles. The interior face is finished in cloth and is available for both two and four door Wranglers and comes in black, white or grey. All panels are ready cut to shape and self-adhesive.
