We've mentioned before that the inspiration for our name came from that of the second moon of Mars. The video above are images of Phobos and Deimos, Mars' twin moons, during an eclipse that took place on August 1st, captured by NASA's rover, Curiosity.

Deimos Air Cooled to Sponsor Best Surfwagen Trophy at Grill'n'Chill

Deimos Air Cooled is sponsoring a special award at Grill-n-Chill 2013, which will take place from the 20th till the 22nd of September at the The Hop Farm, Paddock Wood, Kent. The winner of the best surf-inspired vehicle will win the "Best Surfwagen" trophy and will take home this custom made belly board, shaped by Grizboards. Any surf-themed vehicle can enter, so spread the word and kit-up your car or bus for the show.

Grizboards is based in Kent and makes custom wood longboard skateboards and boards shaped by surfer and skater Paul Knowles. Paul was one of the first skateboarders in the UK starting in 1965 and has been a dedicated surfer since 1966. This board is fantastic and will be a great memento of what should be another awesome show.

VolksWorld 2013

The 2013 VolksWorld Show is now less than two weeks away. We've already started to prepare, with nearly a thousand different products labeled with prices and packed up ready to take.

We're in the same spot as we've been the last two years, Stand 7 in Surrey Hall. We're taking a large variety of products, from the smallest washers to larger items like our top quality window seals. If there's something you'd like us to bring, drop us a line and we'll do our best.

Grill-n-Chill 2012

We were proud to sponsor the Grill-n-Chill show again this year. For its second year the show had moved to the Hop Farm, marking a return of VWs to the show ground. The venue worked amazingly well and well accommodated the great turn-out, following the relentless promotion work done by the PaintScrapers club through 2012.
