Hi all,

This may be in the wrong place (admin please feel free to delete or move as appropriate) but I had a question for the Austin guys.
My uncle currently has an Austin Healey Sprite Mk4, and I always try to find a small related gift for christmas and birthdays. as an example previous purchases have been period dealership sales brochures for his model year and the odd replacement part that i knew were needed. sadly i'm at a bit of a loss this year and wondered if anyone had any suggestions as to what might make for a good gift or if anyone knew of any websites or suppliers that i could look at.

Thanks

Is anyone still using "the original" Waxoyl? There are much better options on the market nowadays.

Agreed, it's not the cheapest but it works well & is the easiest to use.
