ANDY’S TOP AU­TUMN TOUR­ING AC­CES­SORIES

Mx5­parts’ Andy Pear­son sets you up for the sea­son of fall­ing leaves

Total MX-5 - - NEWS -

LUG­GAGE STRAP KIT

De­signed for use with var­i­ous lug­gage racks and avail­able for all four gen­er­a­tions of MX-5, the set of three straps can be spec­i­fied in ei­ther black or tan leather. Long enough to se­curely an­chor even large loads.

BOOT POUCH STOR­AGE SYS­TEM

This real leather pouch stor­age sys­tem has been de­signed to per­fectly ape the shape of the mk1 MX-5’S boot area, and fits se­curely into place us­ing the clips that hold the boot lin­ing in place.

STAIN­LESS STEEL/WOOD LUG­GAGE RACK

This neat rack fea­tures a stain­less steel frame with stylish wooden slats, a com­bi­na­tion that lends it an un­der­stated, retro look. It can be fit­ted or re­moved in min­utes, and looks great on the mk1 and mk2.

REVO LUG­GAGE RACK

The clever lay­out of the Revo rack means that there’s no chance of metal buck­les or clamps mak­ing con­tact with your paint­work. A trio of 25mm ny­lon web­bing straps and sponge rub­ber sup­ports se­curely mount the rack to your boot. It can carry up to 500kg.

BOOT BAG

These boot bags are 100% wa­ter­proof, hard-wear­ing, and pro­vide 50 litres of stor­age. The bag sits atop a sheet of soft, non-slip mat­ting, mean­ing that there’s no chance of dam­ag­ing your paint­work with buck­les or other fas­ten­ers.

AU­TO­MATIC DIG­I­TAL AIR COM­PRES­SOR

Sim­ple to use and small enough to squeeze into all but the most tightly packed of MX-5S, the com­pres­sor fea­tures a self-se­lect pres­sure mode with au­to­matic switch-off, plus a two-piece adap­tor for blow­ing up airbeds and beach balls.

MK4 CAR­BON­FI­BRE RACK

This rack’s car­bon­fi­bre con­struc­tion means it’s both in­cred­i­bly light and im­pres­sively strong, while its clever de­sign al­lows for oddly shaped loads to be trans­ported. Be­cause of the mk4’s alu­minium boot-lid, weight is re­stricted to 10kg or less.

BREATHAL­YSER KIT, TWIN-PACK

Car­ry­ing a pair of breathal­y­sers while driv­ing is now en­shrined in French law, mean­ing it’s il­le­gal to set off on a Gal­lic jaunt with­out them. This neat twin-pack will keep you in the gen­darmes’ good books and is small enough to tuck neatly into your glove­box.

BOOT BAG SHELF BAG

Made from the same ny­lon-coated PVC as the reg­u­lar Boot Bag, the Shelf Bag of­fers an im­pres­sive 19 litres of stor­age space, fea­tures a full-length zip and a pair of carry han­dles. It’s a ver­sa­tile, prac­ti­cal, well-sized prod­uct.

FIRST AID KIT, WARN­ING TRI­AN­GLE & HIGH-VIS JACKET

This gen­uine Mazda ac­ces­sory con­tains ev­ery­thing you need to stay safe, in­clud­ing a warn­ing tri­an­gle, high-vis­i­bil­ity jacket and a first aid kit. Car­ry­ing all three is a le­gal re­quire­ment in many Euro­pean coun­tries, in­clud­ing France.
