    WE NEED YOUR PHOTOS!!! So lets try again for 2019 We have the photos from last year and will be going through those and will include these too. Please spread the word, if you know someone who has taken a large amount of photos from a show or meet - please ask them to get in touch. We would like to use at least 1 group photo from shows/meets on each page. So please send group shots too! If we don't have enough photos or photos of quality then it will be pulled, but hopefully it won't come to that. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please submit your photos to the following email address: ccukcalendar@outlook.com IMPORTANT INFORMATION - PLEASE READ : Please include your username in the subject title or email. Photos must be of a good quality, this means they MUST be of a certain size - 1Mb minimum for small photo entries and around 4mb or higher for main images Any photos below 1Mb will more than likely be unusable, if we receive photos under this they may not be used and you may not be informed. Don't save and send photos from Facebook or other social media as they kill the quality and are reduced in size so are unusable. Regards to the actual photo, previous years we had people sending photos of their cars covered in mud and just sat on the drive or half the car cut out of the photo. Try and be a bit more creative - wash your car, go find a nice location and take some photos if you don't already have some. If anyone has group photos from shows or meets, please send them along too as we need those just as much as your own cars. CLOSING DATE: Friday 2nd November 2018

    In my opinion we need to get Ian and Dean within the calendar, to show the club is also about the people. (Sorry this is taken from the meeting thread so low res, I am sure Cipprio has a higher quality copy of it available).

    Why do you need to carry tools in a Toyota? Apart from things needed to change a wheel in the event of a puncture..torch, first aid kit, and waterproof jacket only.

    for anyone else, thats as confused and clueless as i was. my advice is go to : https://toyota.epc-data.com/ and enter your 17 digit chassis number, from your cars registration log book, into the search box, in top corner of site. it'll bypass all the thinking and confusion, and put you straight to your cars parts. you have to click on the 5 digit number, in the schematic picture, of the part you need, to open up a 2nd box, with the actual 10 digit part number. the 2 gaskets i was looking for, come up as : 22215-74380 22271-88461 and ive been looking for an exhaust hanger bracket for weeks too, which is : 17508-74080 its easy when you know how, confusing when you dont

    Thats a very good idea, I think Ian’s picture and his celica should be on the front cover of the calendar

    Over the past couple of years i've noticed one of my front screen washer jets squirting off aim, projecting most of it's squirt too high up the screen so most would go on the roof The thing is with these trivial problems, it's very easy to forget about them - until the next time you're out driving along the road again, and when washing the screen, say to one self, "i need to fix that when i get home", like you've said a hundred times before. And then when you get home, it's one of those jobs of not much importance in the big scheme of things so very easy to forget all about... until the next drive out onto the open road and one is reminded yet again about the naughty jet washer when pulling the screen wash lever and ...well you can see where this is going [ two years later ] Today between the showers and feeling bored indoors and wanting to get out for some fresh air, i found a pin, went out to the Celica and corrected the aim of that there washer jet. Jone done Next job is replacing all the wiper blades, anyone got good recommendations?, and any makes to avoid? Debs

    Blu Wax oil double dip, fill with V power, disconnect battery and connect terminal guards. Fill with winter washer fluid. Cover and kiss him good night till April. Bug Swap tyres to winter, wax oil double dip, service and check levels. Load boot with extra bulbs, winter washer fluid, de-icer, scraper and starter power pack (last one.. to jump start others with poor batteries ).. When the white stuff arrives.. load the snow shoval, hiking boots and thermal gloves

    1) Lubricate Fuel Flap Hinges 2) Top up reservoir with winter screen-wash 3) Grease Locks 4) Replace Wipers 5) Check Tyres, including the spare, for tread depth/nails & screws/pressure (which will drop as the temperature falls) 6) Lubricate Brake Slider Pins with silicon grease 7) lubricate wiper arm hinges with some light machine oil I've amended #5 so that it reads "Check the tyres including the spare.... I've just done that on my little fleet, and it seems like I may have overlooked the spares... for a 'while'

    After spending a small fortune on PDR tools to try and remove the worst of my dent finally had the time and weather to strip out the interior and see if I could get to the dented area. The result... I pushed it out with my hand Well, I have to tools incase I need to work on another dent. Dent is still there but far less noticeable. I doubt I will be getting it repaired unless I get the car resprayed.

    those 3 words ' pre winter checks ' made me laugh. my exhaust is about to fall off, rear brakes are grinding / binding. front brakes are squeeling, 2 tyres are shot, and spare is punctured, half the interior is missing, and needs putting back in, and theres numerous clunks and clonks from front and rear suspension. and my idles all over the place. i get about 3 minutes a day to work on it. im screwed. hah

    I’ve actually got a friends 2002 Ep3 for a week to sort some welding on the floor. Really enjoying it. However I’m not sure if it’s the wheel alignment or the eBay coil overs but the turn in is awful. It turns in and seems to dig in killing all momentum.

    As much as I’d love one, unfortunately not. The prices seem to be on the rise for them. My cars always been the second car in the house, we have a 2016 Fiesta ST that we keep mint. I just need a car to run around in, throw the dog in, go to the tip with, throw the mountain bike in ect... I’m looking for a EP3 premier. It would kill me to ruin an DC5.

    Hopefully get the brake lines replaced with some home-made copper ones before MOT time.

    Don’t post that much these days, on the Celica side of things anyway, but 6 years ago I had bought my little green beasty so thought I’d share it as not many of these are/were about. Wonder if it’s still alive?

    I was so sure that this was a Lead in for a joke. Something like: How do you know your GT4 is a CS? Because Carlos Sainz it... umm.. Where did I put my coat, again?
