    I don't normally get a Christmas present that is relevant but my love for the Celica has obviously shone through this year and I'm pleased to say that Christmas has been a success. Presents from my wife and younger daughter

    Guess where I went for a little ride out and walk up the mountain that nearly killed me? Ford fanboys were out in force but I think the GT-Four was the coolest car there

    Sadly mine needed that treatment for a good few years before I got her. By then things had got worse and went downhill far faster than I thought they would. Prevention is always better than cure

    Agreed why bother spending anything on our cars? Its not like we enjoy them or find modern stuff a real turn off. In fact why bother at all with cheap, mass produced crap. No point, lets just let em waste away. easy to find another and then repeat.

    Waxoyl is soft and will soon be blasted off exterior parts - it is better suited to cavities and stopping rot coming through from inside. Be very wary of underseal of any sort. If it's just sprayed on over the top of whatever's there then it will seal in dirt, moisture and existing surface rust and accellerate the rusting process. Preparation is critical and isn't fast as it includes removing all dirt and loose paint (many quick turnround places use a steam cleaner or jet wash) Then needs to be left long enough to dry in all the fiddly bits - this ideally means days / weeks in a warm dry place. Then any surface rust needs treating, then a layer of red oxide then finally the underseal. Shortcutting any of this will probably lead to accellerated rusting, especially in the seams - the most critical part to strength.

    7 years ive owned mine and most of the time you brush away dirt etc when you do jobs and also most of the time MOTs are the ones that say if your car is bad

    check out my thread for full details, but I had the entire underside of my car stripped to bare metal, new metal welded in, then all treated in a 4 stage POR 15 process. Not cheap but car will last now. Those basic sprays over everything, in my opinion do nothing but promote and hide rot, as said above. do it right or not at all I feel

    Hey Carling, like you I had an FTO so I know what rust is like. I lost my last car (FTO) to the dread rust so am getting mine done. Been meaning to do it for over a year since owning the car and finally getting it done this week. My local garage is changing my front and rear subframes that have been treated with POR15 today and I will then get the rest of the undercarriage and sills treated with a specialist. They deal with landrovers so am sure they can deal with a Celica. They strip the underside and treat the rust before adding the protection (Dinitrol) and cavity wax. Been quoted about £495 and will need car for at least half a week. Don't really mind as I only drive about 2k a year. Not cheap but then I intend to keep the car for a good few years and paranoid after rust got my FTO!

    ive had this done all surface rust was ground off cleaned up then primed up to stop it coming back then dinatrol applied also had all crossmembers and doors filled wasn't cheap at 500 quid though jr classics did it near Doncaster

    Cavity Wax is popular, Im going with Dinitrol Rustproofing and underseal. My mechanic is doing it, so far he has cleaned all underneath including cavities and rails and all areas inc wheel arches, he is going to rust treat any rusty areas first, then he will go through all the stages of application, basically he said every inch of her including filling the sills up with it as well. Then clear Cavity wax inside the spare wheel well and protect up in behind the quarter panels and lift the carpet and protect the inside floor sections too. Will take a while but thats on the schedule to be done. Wont be cheap but I know he will do a flawless job with it.

    Agh right so prob not a viable option then? I need the car on a daily basis, it’s kept in the garage when not in use but I can’t be without her for a long period of time. Theres a place local to me saying 3-5 days but as you’ve said Chris it sounds like a quick job cutting corners sort of thing. Here they are: http://rustproofing.wales

    If you are comparing my screenshot to what you see on your computer, then it will be different because I'm using Linux KDE Neon and you are probably using some version of Windows. Sorry for the late reply, I've not visited recently. So, right-click page one of the thread and select "Save Page As..." You should now see something similar to the screenshot below. Choose to save as "Web Page, complete" and add a number - 01, 001, etc - at the end of the file name, but before .html, this will keep the pages in the right order. You will have to repeat the above for each page. Once you've got all the pages you need, you can put everything - files and folders - into one folder of your own choice.

    Try reversing in as the bumper is higher at the rear and by the time the front is at the kerb the back wheels will be in the garage and starting to pull the front up

    Could just get a really small bag of cement from B&Q for about a fiver and get a cheapo trowel.knock up a small bit of muck and just smooth it between the road and the kerb.Dont need a large amount,just enough to to take the height factor out a bit.If you do it neat enough and apply it just before it gets dark and when the forecast is dry,you wont attract any attention from busybodies and unlikely the council will be bothered either,if you only use enough for what you need.Simple enough to do,you wont affect the flow of rain to that drain or anything if you keep it nice and flush .Much better than buggering about with bits of wood.

    Bearing in mind your comments above, maybe be best to leave thread here - as not everyone who may sign up will necessarily get a place, if they choose who can attend from the applicants. I will add some extra info here for people to think about. The Toyota Parallel Pomeroy Trophy Saturday 15 February 2020, 9.30am – 4pm What is the Toyota Parallel Pomeroy Trophy? The event’s mission to determine Britain’s best Toyota via a series of autotest-style driving tests, with Toyotas of all types and from all eras pitted against each other using a unique series of calculations to ensure all are judged equally. It’s also a social gathering for Toyota enthusiasts and an opportunity to swap stories with like-minded owners. The only strict requirement is that any car entering the competition must be a) road legal and b) a Toyota. The sheer breadth and variety of cars participating in The Pom make it an event like no other, and we would love to see a similarly broad representation from the Toyota community. There’s no limit on vehicle age, nor is it specific to a select few models. It’s worth emphasising that the competition isn’t about raw speed and power. Far from it; the 2019 Toyota Parallel Pomeroy Trophy was won by an iQ, followed by a Celica GT-Four and Yaris GRMN. Info https://blog.toyota.co.uk/2020-toyota-parallel-pomeroy-trophy Registration link https://www.vsccmembers.co.uk/vsccMedia/26766.pdf The entry fee is £30 and proceeds will go to Toyota GB’s chosen charity, Guide Dogs for the Blind.

    That Meguirs stuff is really good. I use it to remove dried watermarks and shine up if the car gets caught in the rain or is dusty but not dirty enough to wash. Smells good too lol

    Wood didn’t work... drive over it and it snapped and the front bumper hit the road again My only options I have are to raise the height a bit, so buy new springs and get them fitted or invest in something that actually works (but has to otherwise be a waste of money). Heres some pics of my car and the ride height. Does anyone have any idea what size springs I need to get to raise the height? I’ve spoken to a garage and they weren’t sure. I don’t want to buy some springs and find out their the wrong type.
