Changed the gearbox oil with some Fuchs Titan Gearsyn. Feels better now, and was a straightforward job to do :)

Fitted my Blitz warm air intake

 

Which, going by other peoples engine bay pics with the Advanced air cleaner, I think I have done right...

Thank you, I've still not tidied the wiring and won't get the car back from being wrapped until Tuesday.

 

For the polished parts, I just bought an extra intake chamber(I think it's called), rocker cover and throttle body from Ams and took had them to a local polisher then swapped them over (well, had a garage do that while they serviced the car) once they were done.

 

If your looking at doing something similar, have a look at the hydro-dipping thread from BRD first.They do some awesome things with that.

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 :brickwall:

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.

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 :angry:

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 :thumbsup:

 

Next job is replacing all the wiper blades, anyone got good recommendations?, and any makes to avoid?

They do look good, they won the Auto Express wiper blade 2018 group test :thumbsup:

https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/accessories-tyres/36172/best-wiper-blades-2018-group-test

 

Has anyone tried the Michelin Stealth wiper blades?

 

A few years ago i bought a boxful of Stadium wiper rubber replacements, and have replaced the rubbers a couple of times, but have found they don't last well, seem to split at the ends, probably  heat/sun damage, also very noisy wipe and streaky.

 

Scotty Kilmer recommends silicone wiper blades - and he has a lot to say about them :D

Spent 5 minutes fitting brand new Bosch AeroTwin wiper blades all round. Easy job!

 

My old rear wiper was completely useless, just left a opaque smear. The new Aerotwin makes a perfect clean sweep :thumbsup:

The new Aerotwin seem to work well on the front too, under testing screen-wash conditions. 

 

I do prefer the traditional look of the original hinged type wiper blade holders, but have lost patience with the poor performance rubbers and would much rather see where i'm going when it's raining B)
