Convertible Roof Restoration Kit

Everything you need to restore the colour to any old or faded convertible roof:  Restore or re-colour any worn or faded convertible roof. Very easy to follow process allowing anyone to achieve professional results. 100% colour fast when dry. Available in an unlimited number of colours.

The Convertible Roof Restoration Kit is designed to allow anybody to completely restore the colour of any worn or faded convertible roof. Many soft-top owners maintain or restore the bodywork, mechanics and interior of their vehicle to a high standard, only to be left with a roof that looks old, faded and grubby. With our kit, this no longer needs to be an issue!

Simply apply with the sponge and cloth provided in the kit or spray on with a FabriCoat Sprayer or airbrush and watch as your roof is transformed.  Designed to outperform all other convertible roof dyes on the market, its unique formula is water based, 100% colour fast, will resist fading and provide excellent colour depth. In addition to the FabriCoat itself, the kit also contains enough Fabric Protector to thoroughly treat any convertible roof, protecting it from dirt and staining in the future.

Tracking Your Classic Car

You can easily add the latest GPS security tracker to your classic car. With just two wires, positive and negative, installation is not difficult and it doesn't matter whether the vehicle is positive or negative earth. The tracker has an internal aerial so there is no need for extra wiring, and its small size makes it easy to conceal. The transformer will run from a 6 volt system as well as 12 volts so the tracker can be fitted to older vehicles.  With a big thank you to a member of the Triumph and BSA Owners’ Clubs we now have the tracker capable of being powered by a 6 volt electrical system either positive or negative earth. STOCKADE is a self-monitoring GPS security tracker which uses the GPS navigational system to determine its position and then communicates this information to up to five mobile phones using text messaging. The tracker is magnetic and can be easily positioned so that it can receive both GPS and mobile phone signals. You can telephone the tracker at any time to ask it where it is and it will send you a text message with its co-ordinates.  Plus there are no annual fees.  Visit our web site and see STOCKADE in operation on the video Ratcliffe, Director. 01474-350-883.

Ruby tyres - now from Longstone

The new Austin 7 Ruby tyre is here at last. The 400/425X17 Longstone tyre has a retail price of 77 each. Longstone have always done their best to offer a club discount to Austin 7 people, as we ourselves are Austin 7 people. So ring up and have a haggle (01302 711123). At present we are offering sets of 5 tyres with tubes and rim tapes at an extra special price in both the 350x19 and 400/425x17 sizes also the 400/450x18 for the Austin 10/4 which also includes free carriage or free fitting.

The 400/425x17 Longstone Tyres was delivered to our tyre shed in Bawtry on the 2nd of July 2013, and will be in stock from now on. The design and dimensions are taken from an original Austin 7 Ruby tyre. The intention is to provide a tyre that is as close as possible to that fitted to a Ruby when it left the factory. The reasonably strong carcass is designed to suit a light car, and at the same time diminish the wandering of a Ruby at cruising speeds.  I truly hope you like them, they have taken ages to develop.
