  1. if you buy a new matrix then you can do it without removing the dash as it will come with new clips A used one - if you open the clips you wont get them back on - so I supply them with the pipes as well. to fit it complete - to fit that the dash needs to come out. A lot of people chops the pipes half way on the old and new and join with rubber hose so that you dont have to get the dash out. I have one good matrix left if you do want to get a used one.
  2. The original bearings very rarely fail on the celica - my car had the originals on all 4 wheels at 288,000 miles. Usual cause of a failed bearing is potholes - they are pretty well sealed once all fitted so driving through puddles shouldnt have caused it to fail.
  3. Mintex have a good reputation on here but I find they are very much a budget brand. Before I opened the thread, I though I bet he's running mintex pads. I found they never lasted more than 10,000 miles - compared to 20-30k on other brands.

    Would you have a good used exhaust (back box and tail pipe for a celica GT??) I assume they are the same exhaust on the T Sport??


    Also require the GT front lip.

  6. not a fan, I imagine with it going through a valve you wont get as much out and any sludge wont get past the valve either, I expect it will take longer to drain as well
  7. Great to hear this has stayed in the club
  8. celica ones arent worth that much, genuine ones £35 - £40, aftermarket - £10 - £15 - thats on the g7 - the earlier ones are even less.
  9. There are drains at the bottom of the doors - if you block these your doors will rot. I wouldnt put wax in there - would poke the holes to make sure they are not blocked though
  10. Agree on Scottish cars - have seen some that have been really bad from there. Most coastal cars seem to be bad Cars from around the midlands seem to be ok.
  11. Those with JDM cars will know a normal OBD reader wont work with there car, I have a tool that does them but it was quite expensive and has been discontinued, I have just come across this - which covers JOBD https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JOBD-OBD2-Car-Scanner-Engine-Fault-Code-Reader-Diagnostic-Tool-for-Japanese-Cars/392269988842?epid=14031257018&hash=item5b551d03ea:g:tcYAAOSwTUdco0hj I have not tried it but for the price if you have a JDM car its worth a shot!
  12. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MOBILE-SCISSOR-LIFT-TILTING-CAR-LIFT-RAMP-ADJUSTABLE-WIDTH-1500Kg-Capacity/283504978329?hash=item420236a999:g:9KwAAOSwcUBYLvBi I think bumblebee has something similar, looking at getting one for when I get rid of the unit, been working on the floor using axle stands all week and now i think ive done my back in... @Bumblebee
  13. I have 2 front subframes left now if anyone needs one - when they are gone they are gone
  14. Im cutting some sills out of a car this week for a customer , looking at that spare wheel well I think I might cut that out as well for future use
  15. The sills have been rotting on some of these for a while now, more than 5 years when I first found a rotten one after taking the side skirts off, looked fine with the skirts on
