Opie Oils clearance!

Hi guys

At Opies, we try and keep our stock levels as accurate as possible with regular stock takes. However, due to the nature of the beast, it can sometimes happen that after a stock take, we have more stock on the shelf than our stock system thought. A happy accident, if you will.

Also, we like to keep all of our images up to date and our stock as current as possible – between manufacturers changing their labels on popular products and introducing new bottle shapes, you can soon end up with some older designs hanging about. Being the generous folks that we are, we decided to add this older stock to the Opies clearance section, rather than just having it sit on the shelf!

Hi guys

At Opies, we’re firm believers in testing a product before it gets our seal of approval. This week, we had a colleagues car whos headlights were looking a bit misty and tired – we thought this would be the perfect oppurtunity to put the Meguiars Headlight Restoration Kit to the test!

Paintwork looking a bit tired?

At Opies, we’re keen on quality brands, especially those with a history and track record that is world famous. One such brand is T-Cut. Originally known as “Tetrosyl Cutting Oil” they have been used for cleaning and restoring paintwork colour since 1954. That’s a fair old bit of experience in the world of bodywork restoration! You can see why they are confident enough to have “If it says T-Cut, it works”  printed on the tin.

We’re pleased to announce that their products are now on the shelf and ready to go, and first off, we’ll be taking a quick look at one of their most popular products – The T-Cut 365 Paintwork Perfection colour restorer range.

Valvoline Tectyl Biocleaner, now at Opies

For more than 85 years, customers around the world have chosen the Valvoline Tectyl brand for their quality rust and corrosion protection products and the huge range that is available – whatever the job at hand, there is a Tectyl product that is specially formulated to get it done to a high standard. At Opies, we stock a wide variety of rust preventatives from trusted brands, and are proud to include Tectyl in this range.

But fear not, Opies have the solution to this, saving you hours of scrubbing and scraping. Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for Valvoline Tectyl Biocleaner!

Opies – Get some grease!

Hi all

No workshop or garage is complete without a tub of trusty grease on hand for all those little jobs. Wheel bearings, suspension linkages, seals, nuts, bolts and everything in between all require a little bit of grease from time to time, even if it’s just to keep out the weather and prevent corrosion.

At Opies, we stock a huge range of greases from top brands, so whatever the job at hand – even if it’s being used to prevent scuffing on the piston valve stems of your beloved Rolls Royce – we’ve got the product for you.

Get your motorhome ready for the winter with Fenwicks

It’s safe to say that summer is long gone, and we are all now beginning to feel winter creeping up on us. You’ve had your last holiday of the season in your trusty motorhome or caravan, and it’s time to put it into hibernation until spring returns. Of course, now you’ve got those really fun jobs such as draining the chemical toilet and all other water based systems to prevent freeze damage to look forward to, but there’s another equally important prerequisite to storage that is often overlooked – creating a protective layer for the exterior of your unit to protect it over the winter months.

Luckily for you, Opies stock a product that is perfect for creating this protective “jacket” that is durable enough to keep you covered all winter – Fenwicks Over Wintering Exterior Protector.
