YouTube highlights: Christmas puddings, shiny wheels and a V8 Stag

Triumph Stag story

We’re big fans of YouTube here at Haynes. Not only is it a fantastic source of entertainment, it’s also a great source of information. Indeed, we’ve got our very own YouTube channel, which is packed with hints, tips and step-by-step videos to help you maintain and repair your own vehicles.

Check it out and subscribe here, and make sure you hit the bell icon so that you know the moment we upload new content, such as the 'short', below, on 5 things to include in a winter emergency car kit.

Edd China

Edd’s Christmas Pudding Lighting Tips! 

Here’s something we didn’t expect to find on Edd’s channel: tips on how to set light to your Christmas pudding! Although, to be honest, it seems that any alcohol that's 40% proof will do the trick, as he proves here.

Then it's a simple matter of deciding whether you prefer sugar or salt with your pudding, before you tuck in (post flames) without tipping any of it on the floor. Merry Christmas!


The Triumph Stag Was a Beautiful Failure

"The Triumph Stag was a new kind of car for British Leyland,” says Twin-Cam’s Ed. "A big V8 convertible grand tourer, yet it proved a sonorous and wafty problem for them,” as he tells the Stag story, which covers its development, design and engine.

You can still buy the Stag Owners Workshop Manual as part of our Classic Car Manuals collection.

Chris Fix

How to Super Clean Your Wheels

This could be the first time we’ve featured a video tutorial that’s taken longer to watch than we’d like to spend on the job it’s teaching us to do, but then this is Chris Fix and he likes to do things properly, so we watched it from beginning to end.

For the record, that includes: the tools and products needed, rinsing and cleaning, drying, removing stains, applying tyre shine and wheel protector, and looking after your clean wheels.
