    Personally i think all cars should have an mot check. Most people on hear would agree even if your cars are up together they would still mot it. Take new cars from the factory they don't get an mot for the first 3 years. How many people know of the new cars taking their first mot after 3 years that have failed and that's only 3 years from new. It's a stupid idea. OK enthusiasts do tend to look after their cars bikes ect better than Joe blogs. Some are no mechanic and have work done for them and wouldn't necessarily realise or notice something was wrong.

    Do it red and in 10 years it will be orange. Otherwise known as Toyota red.....

    Removed the plastic sill covers to inspect the underlying metalwork: Looked a little mucky but not as bad as feared... After a jolly good clean up the sills expose a remarkably fresh appearance, just some surface rust blemishes along that weld-lip that hangs down. Dinitrol tin worm killer is sprayed at high pressure into the box sections of the sills, and into both front and rear sub-frames.

    Seems like a terrible idea to me. It's not that hard to keep a car road worthy enough to pass an MOT.

    No I don't cut the bag just as it is. The best thing to use are the little silica bags you get in shoe boxes etc

    What Ams said above, esp the under the rear seat thing and dont keep any bottles of liquid in the car as that doesnt help a sock with some crystal cat litter in it with the top tied is better than rice

    I leave a bag of rice on the dash whilst the car is parked up, it doesn't completely stop condensation but it certainly helps.

    The problem is with using the AC is that once you start using it, you constantly have to use it to demist the windows. If you stop and let it dry out over a few weeks it clears up. Also cleaning the windows from the inside dramatically reduces how much they mist up

    Are you searching "All Content"? I typed "shelf+rattle", and four threads came up.

    Hey M33R4. I did two things to solve this problem in the end; 1. Run 2 strips of foam tape on either side where the parcel shelf rests 2. Coil some Insulation tape (or similar) around the boot catch. This will stop the latch rattling. Hope that helps.

    Don't sell it. In fifteen years from now it will be a desirable old classic worth £20k+ and you'll be kicking yourself up your own backside saying how you used to own one and regret having sold it Debs

    I agree. I have sold dozens over the years and never had a problem. If I thought they were serious I drove first to let them listen for noises, look for smoke etc Then I would go through haggle phase. If we weren't agreed on price then no drive. If they got to drive I just said three rules, Please observe speed limits, please check mirror before testing brakes, bend it and you buy it (having checked they had a decent deposit)

    As said above sadly a lot of insurance companies no longer give fully comp drivers third party on other vehicles, just something else to catch people out on now a days. Take them out first let them go out if you are happy with you in the passenger seat, but make sure you are in the seat before they are behind the wheel. And your neurology lesson for the day: Always use your instincts if you don't trust them don't let them drive it, that sixth sense we have from time to time is actually your subconscious telling you something is wrong as it takes everything in unlike our conscious brain.

    I've got an original paint chip book for the 1972 / 1973 ish toyota range with codes if you want to go for an original toyota colour. But out of the two above colours I like the orange

    Wow 100% of people so far say red (of 3 people). Seems pretty decisive to me.

    I had to string up an exhaust on my Clio. The bracket snapped so had to tie some bright blue string around the thing and lash it the boot catch. Stayed like that for about 3 weeks before I got it sorted. Still - got my first aftermarket 3" twin Pipercross exhaust out of it sounded like a proper chav chariot then! On the Celica, if you discount the fact a raked a socket driver down my rear quarter scratching the paint when fitting a new boot strut, the worst I've done is hack my wheel arch liner to death whilst trying to fit an Injen CAI to my last T-Sport. I wasn't anticipating the tight angles I'd encounter and in typical Gaz fashion went at all very ill-prepared. That poor arch liner got raped with a rusty saw knife looking thing and a pair of reasonably blunt snips. It was pure carnage and definitely my stand out "f**k it, that'll do" moment. Oh... and as for the paint - nothing a little touch up pen didn't *uh hem* fix. I try not to dabble tbh - I'm not that clued up really and most things rarely go well when I use my hands, I'm surprised I've stayed married so long
