Follow Ceramic coatings are the leading choice for car care enthusiasts when it comes to providing their vehicle with lasting protection. The key to their popularity lies in their efficacy and this is largely thanks to nanochemistry. The molecules involved have a large surface area compared to their internal volume. As such, they are significantly more resilient to outside forces, such as impact, when compared with larger molecules. Therefore, ceramic coatings based on nanotechnology are inherently tougher than polymer sealants or carnauba waxes. The primary benefits of applying a ceramic coating to a vehicle’s paintwork, trim, glass, wheels and other substrates include: Hydrophobic properties – coatings impart the treated surface a high water contact angle, so, rather than flatten out on the surface, water is encouraged to roll into beads. The beads are then more easily blown away, carrying associated contamination away from the surface, rather than adhering to it. … [Read more...] about Porsche Macan New Car Protection with Zipang

For most classic car enthusiasts, a trip to the upholstery shop is about as welcome as a trip to the dentist. Yet with a little planning and preparation, the experience can certainly run smoothly, and can actually be rewarding. “It’s going to cost how much?” “You can’t take my car in for how long?” Those are probably the two most commonly asked questions the first time any enthusiast visits an upholstery shop. The simple fact is, custom upholstery can be expensive, and if the upholsterer is worth his salt be prepared to wait for it, in some cases up to two years before they even have room in their schedule for your car. Proper planning is the key. Select an upholsterer you feel comfortable with and that can perform the style of work you’re looking for, inspect the quality of their work from fit to finish, and then make an appointment. This will get you on the list. Some shops require a non-refundable deposit just to secure your spot, so be … [Read more...] about Preparing Your Classic Car for Upholstery
Drivers take turn 11 at Circuit of the Americas pretty slowly. It’s tight, and they’ll only hit about 60 miles per hour, depending on the car. Then they’ll charge down the main straight, a three-quarters-of-a-mile descent that lets the right machine clear 200. As I stand in the grandstands before turn 12, a black-and-gold racecar quickly fills my field of view. It’s Texas-hot in Austin today, close to 90 and humid, but the car brings a wind with it. The wind is made of noise. Fans come to Formula One races for this kind of sensory experience. When the series spun up in 1946, following the exhaustive end of World War II, fantastic machines replaced the terrifying cacophony of bombs with the joyful chorus of speed-linked sound. Over the years, millions of fans have swarmed the edges of racetracks to hear F1’s roar. But you don’t just hear an F1 engine. You feel it. As the car flies by the grandstand, the concussive wave emanating from its eight … [Read more...] about How will Formula One reckon with electric cars?
