  1. Thank you Kev16v, I'll let him know. Although he has owned it from new it's got to the point now when his bad knees are preventing any use or enjoyment of the vehicle . . .which is a bit sad really.
  2. Hi Crazy Cat Lady, seems like I can always rely on you for a comment to one of my posts . . .thank you. It's not a Blue edition and not resprayed ( Lagoon blue is 8M6 . . . might have the wrong name on this though). Service history is just about perfect, no accidents ( he's never gone anywhere far enough to HAVE an accident ! . Vehicle has no mods and is standard as hell, its still got the round advertising blurb in the well of the spare wheel . . . . Thanks for the reply
  3. I have already told him that the £4500 he thinks it's worth is "unrealistic"
  4. Just been speaking to a guy who has the above vehicle in his drive and is maybe looking to sell as it is not used and his knees are bad so cannot get out of it easily.At the moment the vehicle is only driven around the block on Sundays. He is original owner, it's mot'd,service history,original keys,original spare wheel,leather seats.NO sunroof though,3 post spoiler on tailgate,5 spoke orignal wheels have just been painted. Interior looks very good,slight wear on drivers seat bolster, 3/4 small scrtches to paintwork and a very few stone chips on front.Think he said that it had just had a new battery as previous one failed due to lack of use. He is not in rush to sell so will ask top money for it. Ebay and Autotrader advertising similar vehicle's but not with such low mileage. Would appreciate your thought on this.
  5. "J B weld" seems good for almost any repair,the americans seem to use it for anything and everything. £5.33 on Amazon
  6. Answering this on the basis/assumption that this is just the foam that is contaminated . . . Have you tried using the 'Swarfega' hand cleaner? As this is specifically designed to remove oil/grease from your hands then I would expect it to be OK for the foam.Try a small area first though. I use it to remove oil/grease from Cotton/Linen fabrics without damage.To get the best use you need to rub /massage the Swarfega into the item then leave it for 2-3 hours to do it's work.Wash out with warm soapy water ( i use the green blocks of household soap for this). I accept that there is a smell to the Swarfega, however this is removed when washed with the soapy water, just repeat if the odour is still there. You may have to repeat the process to get all the oil out but it will get it. Most import thing is to massage the swarfega in and LEAVE IT to work on the oil, if you just wash immediatley it will not work. Last point to mention is try to avoid getting swarfega on the leather as it will happily remove all the 'good oils/waxes' from the leather.If it gets on the leather just wipe it off asap and apply leather balm etc. I suggest you only use Swarfega, would avoid the other cheaper/unknown brands. Hope this helps with the problem
  7. hub to inner disc - just a thin film of "multipurpose" grease or whatever i have in the garage - nothing special. The red rubber grease is just for the slider pins only,nowhere else
  8. Ceratec is fine,but I am still "old school" so the silder pins get red rubber grease instead
  9. just my pennies worth . . . over the years many people have (reluctantley) sold their much loved celica then,1 or 2 years later, are back on here saying it was "a mistake" & " I should not have done it" & "does anyone know where . . . . is?" With the time, money and effort you have spent on your obvious pride and joy I would keep it until the day comes when the only way you can get out of it is by rolling out on to floor Once it's gone . . . . . . . .
  10. are you able to tell whether it's from front or rear of car? Tyre? but Dorris beat me to it Any change in noise if you knock it out of gear and free wheel?
  11. noticed this on the BBC web site "Motorists with vehicles breaching legal noise limits could face fines if new "acoustic camera" technology is developed, the government has said.The Department for Transport will test noise-detecting cameras in various locations over the next seven months"
  12. Boxed set of rear discs and pads from seller on ebay "autosessive " in Chester. You may be able to do a search for the Avensis parts, however,as you have non standard equipment best to contact them.
  13. When I first got my G7 I fitted Ferodo disc's and pads. Over the years I've tried most of the alternatives in various combinations. What's on the car now I hear you all ask . . . . . Correct . . Ferodo disc's (not drilled or grooved) and Ferodo pads - OK it's only for road use and I guess the track guys will shake their heads,but for "normal" use Ferodo are still hard to beat
  14. https://toyota.epc-data.com might be a bit if use, , have only used it few times for GEN 7 though
  15. sorry

      Looks very nice, 

       

      I got Darren to make me some Supra dragon sticky wheel centre's which IMO make a huge improvement over the OEM sketchy stock outline of a Gen 7 [which looks like something drawn up by someones 8 year old kid]  :lol:

      IMO Supra dragons on the wheel centres look fab, but TBH i prefer to keep the car fairly mod free [or so that any improvements are obviously noticeable] if you know wot i mean ;)

  16. Hi,you seem to like the "Dragon Boat" theme,just wondered if you knew there is badge for the exterior?

  17. Just seen this . . . Crikey they've gone up in price , 22 months ago I paid £18.50 for the fronts and £14.50 for the rears with free p&p. I will buy them again though . . . . when the time comes . . . as they are excellent pads and don't cover your nice summer wheels in horrible black dust, in fact they are a very "clean" pad
  18. Thanks for the replies . . . Already looked at the eBay offerings, only found 1 listing which stacks the wheels like this. Don't want the wheels lying flat (as the stands offered on eBay show) the will take up to much room in a smallish garage. . . . . hence the question.
  19. Yeah . . . just being lazy I suppose, if necessay i'll get the welder back from my mate and cobble something together
  20. Hi is there a company in UK that makes a tyre rack/stand like this one on eBay ? Thanks
  21. Happy 6 Anniversary maizey!
