    Best courier to use for large parts?

    Paisley Freight seem reliable

    Hose pipe recommendations

    I've got a couple of Karcher ones which do the job nicely.

    what have you done to your celica today...

    given the RA28 a quick going over earlier in the wek - decided to sort out the staring issue. had my trusty mechanic on the case which ended up needing a new starter solenoid. Manage to track a potential replacement (second hand one) between us and it's on and starting. Got to love 40yr old cars and trying to find parts! Still - at least I'm able to get over to Pendle PowerFest on sunday if anyone in the Greater Manchester area fancies a family friendly car show!

    What came in the Post Today?

    Toyota 'Sharkfin' aerial for my GT86 - not a cheap option and still need to get it colour coded to match my shade of silver as they changed it on MY15's!

    celica GT vs GT86

    The only issue I have from that list is the squealing brakes - this is down to the harder compound used on the pads. Toyota will replace them with softer compound pads if you want under warranty. Mine's a 14 plate one - purchased with 9k miles and still a great car to drive IMHO. the gears are a little notchy until warmed up but not to the point where you can't select gears. I suspect that was a bit of a lemon.

    Remember you had that MotorMasters sticker in the window a year or two ago.. I was there yesterday and mentioned that one of their old customer cars had ended up over the water.. Dave was pleased to hear it's still going...

    Alloys renovation

    I've used them before to re-furb allloys both on my Celica and when I had the IS200. I also got them to powder coat bits for me such as strut braces, battery and radiator clamps. I'll be getting them to do some spare strut bars for my GT86 soon. Helps as they are walking distance from my house lol.

    Gen7 seats removed and put in storage for the guy buying them off me. Gen6 seats refitted - forgot how comfy they are. Project demod continues....
