    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?

    IMO a classic car must be 100% factory spec'd. From there, you can do whatever you want, it is your car anyways. The downside with modding a car is that, our own taste is not for everyone. Thus if you ever decide to sell, less people will be willing to put an offer, devaluing this way the car. Personaly I love "properly" modded cars and this is what I am doing with mine.

    It's your car - do what you want with it. If you're concerned about future value and originality, any mod that cannot be quickly removed and returned to stock is frowned on. Just make sure you keep all the deleted parts. If you do any work on the engine - it's almost inevitable that you will end up with it forged - stock items are either unavailable or massively expensive, so much so that a forged upgrade is the economical option. Forged engine leads onto other performance mods, and before you know it - it isn't a cs anymore but it will be fast.

    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?

    Most go with Jap import size, 12 x 6 inch. But anything other than the standard number size plate is deemed illegal in the eyes of the police. Just depends how fussy your local plod are.

    There's nothing fundamental about Ethanol that will require complete new engines, especially at 10%. It can be more corrosive, although fuel suppliers should add corrosion inhibitors to counter this. Worst case, it may require new fuel lines and maybe some other fuel system components. Not a complete engine. It has a higher RON so no need for fundamental engine changes to avoid detonation. While blended with petrol it is likely this will replace other RON boosters and overall RON will remain the same. The most likely problem is that it needs a slightly richer mixture. If the fuel system can't accommodate this automatically it may require some aftermarket changes, the simplest being an adjustable fuel pressure regulator to increase pressure slightly. On the other hand, Photosynthesis which is fundamental to all vegetation growing converts CO2 to Oxygen. Like most things in nature, there is an equilibrium with plants converting light, water and CO2 to Oxygen and food, then Animals consuming the food and oxygen and converting back to CO2. Reduction in vegitation is just as harmful as production of CO2. They should tax chainsaws as heavily as cars.

    For those who may not have seen this, Jay Leno did a piece on the Celica on his program.

    If a pigeon lands on my car it won't live long enough for me to take a photo of it.

    They are both double filament on each side. So basically if i disconnect the inner 2 lights from the brake side of the circuit and wire that to a fog switch to work as fog lights . Leave the side light one as is to stay working as tail lights. That way both tail lights on either side will still work as tails and the inner ones will work has fogs instead of brake. Cheers mate.

    Assuming you have one tail light that is a single filament bulb and one that is a stop and tail. Swap the single filament for a twin filament and wire the brighter side to the fog switch

    Not a done to, but a done with.... Used my 7 to jump start our generator for our 500 attendee Outdoor Cinema event in the estate of a stately home. Terrible movie (greatest showman), but the 480 ladies attending loved it. Pretty much maxed out our enormous soundsystem and gained some temporary deafness. Awesome night. wouldn't have happened if I didn't have my jump leads and a willing battery
