    New product - Not exactly a part but an essential car item

    Hi All, Recently Ive seen a couple of posts regarding car fires and People loosing their babies. So at Heritage we decided to add a range of fire extinguishers and products to try and help our fellow enthusiasts from stopping this happening. Here are some links. We have a limited stock at the moment as we didn't know how well they would go down but we can get new stock in super quickly if they sell out. There is a fair few products but here are some of my favorites.

    Fires in Corrados are thankfully rare. I do remember one of the Campaigns having a fire in the dash.

    You say that they are rare but I've seen quite a few photo's of them going up in flames. The headlight switch is a bad culprit for it and a few other electrical gremlins. I always carry an extinguisher with me

    There was someone making a bracket to fix an extinguisher at the front underside of the passenger seat a while ago, think a few people might be interested

    I have an extinguisher and it fits just right inside the glove box with my 10 mm spanner to isolate the battery if required, the thing is I bet some of these fires are caused by shoddy workmanship .

    for me its just a cheap essential to keep in the car, just in case and for piece of mind.

    Worst fire i saw recently was a camper that took an entire petrol station out
