    If you can wait a month or so, my old mechanic might be able to do it.

    Gen6 and gen7 wheel nuts.

    The back of that wheel need flatting back Those wheel use taper nuts - ill try and find some of the original ones and get a pic up in case they are a ball taper The other thing is worn bushes - but you would get a wobble on hard braking after about 40-50mph as well

    MOT Advisory

    Rules tightened up on it last year, he has put it down as an advisory to cover his back.
  4. Other than the gearknob that looks really lovely. Would want to have a good look underneath at that price and make sure its not burning oil badly, if its bad you should see it smoking

    What is Moo worth?

    Yep - clean air zone coming to Birmingham centre next year - doesnt really go anywhere near far enough to have a significant affect on air quality and suspect they will have to widen the area to the whole of birmingham within a few years which will make most of my cars in storage and my dailies unusable.

    What is Moo worth?

    but usually its the unmodified ones that fetch top money Assuming you pay £500 a year for barn storage, still cant see you recouping the storage costs in 10 years. Gen4s can still be picked up for a few grand.

    Gen6 and gen7 wheel nuts.

    Assuming you have had them balanced a second time and the problem remains then a problem I have seen in the past is the refurb places put too much paint on the back mating surface - so it doesnt give a flush flat finish against the hub - causing a wobble.. the other place is the centre hole where it mounts - thats easier to spot as they dont go on easy. Post up a pic of the back of the wheel - might be worth sanding them back if thats the case

    What is Moo worth?

    Unfortunately Ive seen charged cars go for 5k, I think even at 3k you would struggle to find a buyer, please dont take that as an insult to the work you have put into the car, its just the way prices are.

    No MoT for 40 Year Old Cars

    Sorry no - I have seen many classics that look lovely on the outside but are rotten underneath. Few years ago we had an old mini come in, beautiful on the outside and inside but was so bad underneath had the dangerous marker ticked on it, Guy was planning on selling it to someone who was coming down from Scotland that afternoon to buy it. The main parts of the test are still relevant to a 40 year old car.
  11. Klarius will generally last 2-3 years, genuine toyota are usually minimum 10 years and can usually be welded when they do go
  12. If you get it wrong it can really affect handling. Lots of the MR2 guys end up going back to stock (wider rears) sizes after fitting the same size aftermarket wheels all round.
  13. could be a faulty exhaust - can you hear any vibration in any of the silencers. Would try and get euro to swap them for replacements Klarius are on the cheaper end, would try a Bosal if you can get one - or try a good used oem one

    Car share with a friend?

    As hes such a good friend I wouldnt risk it personally One of my best mates fell out with me after doing him a favour on his car even though I was £2500 out of pocket as a result ( and didnt even say anything)
