1 TAKE A SEAT, CREEP

THIS IS WHY WE DON’T HAVE MUCH SUPER

1 TAKE A SEAT, CREEP

If there’s one thing we like to do as much as working under our cars, its sitting down. Luckily HAFCO feels the same way and has made this 2-in-1 Mechanic’s Creeper & Seat Combo. It has a 1200mm long backrest and only sits 130mm of the ground, so after you’re done tinkering you can take a load off and crack a cold one. Yours for a mere $79.20. www. machineryhouse.com.au/ A006

2 HOW TO: MARRIAGE

If only the nuptials were as simple as the owner’s manual of your XB. Well, Haynes has obviously thought the same thing and has created a handy manual to help with the old ball-and-pain. The booklet covers exploded views, flow charts, fault diagnosis and has plenty of helpful hints and tips to keep your married life firing on all cylinders. A relative bargain compared to counselling, the booklet is just $12.95. http://bit.ly/ HaynesExplains

3 QUICKSILVER ’STANG

If you’ve got a new FM Mustang and you feel like your stock wheels just aren’t doing it for you anymore then do not fear, because Roush is here. Stocked by Mustang Motorsport they’re an absolutely ace looking set of S550 cast aluminium wheels in quicksilver. They measure at 20x9.5” 255/35 and are priced at $1125 with rubber.

4 PRIDE & TOY

Biante model cars make some top-notch classic Aussie muscle car models, and this one is no exception.

The XY Falcon GT-HO Phase III is unquestionably Australia’s most desirable classic muscle car, and Biante has done a brilliant job of capturing the legend in 1:18 scale in this limited run of 1008 pieces, painted in Jewel Green. For $250 it’s also a fair bit cheaper than the real thing.

5 WHAT A BLAST

The best cars have rust, because vintage cars are just that, vintage.

That’s why HAFCO has created this sand blaster to eradicate dirt and rust from your pride and joy.

The blaster includes a lowvoltage internal work light, protective gloves, blast gun, hopper and stand, replacement protective screens and an assortment of ceramic tips all for $319.


6 PRO SPANNER

Sidchrome knows that we can never have enough tools…or cars…or beer.

Anyway, to cater for our perpetual need, Sidchrome has created the 24 Piece Metric/AF 440 Pro Series Spanner Set. The set includes such features as a Torque Plus Fastening System and Anti Slip knuckle-saving feature in the open end spanner, I-beam increased strength and more torque and a ring step-down design where one side of the ring is parallel to the shank.
