  1. Have to check the newest batches of Toyos, as i recall they're not Japan made anymore
  2. Got the AA maintenance charger from Amazon for 25 quid delivered,all set up today.
  3. Aha,so what happened with the Fast and Furious setup,all sold on now?
  4. Sherv

    Bek

    He has a very dry wit at times lol
  5. My mate works for a company that deals in used CATs, they have a contract with the biggest recycling company in the uk and have branched out overseas. Theres some serious money to be made sorting the precious metals from them. Hes posted up loads of pics of unscrupulous people being filmed pulling up beside a target car (not just 4x4s) and they jack those up in seconds and saw the cats off ridiculously quick. Lots of Prius type cars and newer models. They work in teams and always usually have a nutter with a weapon with them to deal with owners or heroes. Theyll do it in broad daylight and are very efficient.
  6. My 1980s reprints of old Toyota ads came.Ordered one for my gen4,and got one for the Supra free of charge with it.Couple of cheap frames later and they're headed for the mancave garage wall next to my gen4 (wish i had the MA61 too though!)
  7. You never know what you might meet, down dark tunnels.....
  8. having that many covers cant let the moisture of condensation out. Ive mentioned this before that yes, no cover is perfect however my one from Specialised Covers has done my gen4 no harm at all over 6 years and a respray inbetween.i didn't cover the car for a few weeks after the new paint though.its breathable and most out there just aren't. When the weather's alright I always took the cover off now and again if it was convenient. but it was covered for a good few weeks at a time over the winter . Through snow and all sorts.But that's just my experience. I wouldn't use any other cover myself .Handily I got my garage sorted today so gen4 is now inside , hurrah.still tempted to get one made up for the faff though.
  9. https://www.specialisedcovers.com/car-covers/ these aren't cheap,but i paid out for one that was custom made for the gen4 and ive had it absolutely years outside in all weathers,and as you know mate my gen4 is all the better for it (though it will soon be in my garage now ive got my shed done,yay). Its only just now starting to get a few holes where the material is finally deteriorating,but the amount of time and protection ive had out of it its been really good value.Fully waterproof,breathable and a soft lining with strong stitched seams and elasticated ends with 4 clip straps that go the width of the car.Honestly if you absolutely have to keep a car outside,these are the kiddies.Later on I'm going to get one for the GT4 when ive saved up the cash, as thatll be the one outside now.Does seem a lot of money but they are excellent.
  10. Thats good of you mate.I would only really need just the stands for the corners.Let me check out the other options first though.Pity we're opposite ends of the country LOL. I might have a word with a couple of mates as well,see if i can get something done locally.
  11. Yeah not sure about the DIY MR2 one. All the foldy hydraulic stuff is cool but as i said,budget next to bugger all! Jims got the idea,just 4 standalone columns of good strength and with the ability to stop the wheel rotating once on.Would probably need one end of the car on some raisers though,if you werent using a driveon, then once one end is up in the air,if you did want the entire car off the ground then youd need one end on some slabs or whatever first to get the jack under as the car would be at a big angle! This is also the reason for getting better height.I have to watch my back after having a discectomy when i was 30. I did the underside of the gen4 years back with it on axle stands,and it was a bit of a killer.I want to do some cleanup under the GT4,and also to be able to keep the Gen4 good,so I'm not going to fold myself about any more,too old and rounded for that shit these days
