A One-Piece Quick-Action Filler Cap.
The Bonora Quick-action Filler Cap marketed by the T.F.T. Trading Company, of 7/9 St. James’s Street, London, S.W.1, possesses all the advantages which the normal screw-type filler cap lacks. To begin with, it is really quick in action, only one movement of the lever being required to bring the cap to a vertical position, and vice-versa. Then, being integral with the orifice of the tank, it cannot be mislaid or left behind after a hurried stop at a garage.
Incidentally, as proof of its efficiency under the most stringent conditions, the Bonora filler cap has been used by Italian racing drivers for years, and was fitted to the victorious M.G. Magnettes in the recent 1,000 Miles Race.
The price asked is 15s. td., and the accessory can be fitted to any make of car.
Throw away that piece of Cardboard !
SOME kind of radiator-temperature control is essential to obtain the greatest efficiency from a sports car, and during the winter months it is astonishing how many cars are running at a far too cool temperature. In order to avoid the use of a” family” car radiator muff, Messrs. Frank Ashby & Sons, Ltd., of Birmingham, have recently introduced an ingenious accessory, known as the ” Sportsmuff.” Neatly made, the ” Sportsmuff ” is in the form of a blanket for the lower half of the radiator, and being a single piece, can be attached to a stone-guard with ease—a difficult matter when a full sized muff is used. Indeed speed of fitting, and ease of storage on the car when not in use are the great advantages of the ” Sportsmuff,” and being well tailored, it
does not sag or gape when in place on the radiator.
There are three types available. Type A, combined with a ” Brooklands ” stone-guard at a special price ranging from 40s. upwards. Type B, radiator fitting for those who do not wish to go to the expense of fitting a stone-guard, costing 10s. 6d. to 12s. 6d. complete. Type C, for cars having built-in stone-guards, such as M.G. Midget, Hornet special, etc., price 12s. 6d. Finally, all models can be fitted with a ” Brooklands ” Helmet Badge, at an extra charge of 2s. Existing stone-guards can be convened to take a ” Sportsmuff at a cost of 2s., at Works.
For the man who was to make repeated short journeys in town, or long runs at night in the Summer, the ” Sportsmuff ” should prove invaluable.
