    Tool kit

    No zip ties don't know what to do with them apart from tying victims up the Gen 7 can fit two bodies in comfortably. My boot struts haven't gone yet but I can imagine for those that have anyone trying to escape would just be hit back on the head again and fall back in. Wd40 dry lubricant for locks ERM have sprayed the dry lubricant so the door locks don't freeze incase I need to get in manually Air compressors with a light on Car and window and leather treatment/polish De icer Scrapy thingy Oil thingy bottle A rug - can be used for a romantic moment or to put over bodies Battery jump starter thingy RainCoat Umberella AA expandable thingy for windscreen to prevent windows freezing over But most importantly I have shopping bags

    Newcomer & happy

    Looks great I've recently bought: A meguiars headlamp restorer kit https://www.amazon.co.uk/Meguiars-G2000-Perfect-Headlight-Restoration/dp/B00P9OF04I/ref=sr_1_sc_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1535103666&sr=1-1-spell&keywords=meguirs+headlight+restorer+kit and 3M headlight restorer kit https://www.amazon.co.uk/3M-39073-Restoration-Discoloured-Headlights/dp/B0078IHJ1K/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_263_bs_img_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=BCE4XH130JZKB48Y74HH The very next day the hot spell was over and I don't have a garage. So I'm waiting to have time and weather to do it. The 3m kit certainly has the best reviews but the meguiars comes with a clear coat UV protect and heat protection spray Bit over kill but the intention was to do a before and after on each product so the rest of you could see the results. I've tried toothpaste ! In hind sight they are not that bad and I think I probably dont need the 3m kit but we will see. OR You could use the advice from Chris Fix https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEJbKLZ7RmM

  9. (What sort of direction is he taking the company) - my immediate thought would be to look after you to the extend you would be better off than going through the insurance. If you are not going to be slighted by the MOT omission, personally I'd have all the worked quoted by a Toyota Garage (so long as its not too much that's going to write the car off and you cant buy it back - happened to me recently with my black 140) and go through the insurance- and if your body pain is due as a result of the accident then.... I wish you best of luck getting this resolved. I'd have expected they would look after you for A: not wanting the bad publicity B: not wanting a claim in the "claims history" We all know how hire cars and company cars are driven, they are not in the same category as the care and attention our fold take in our cars, that makes it more painful when your pride and joy is damaged through no fault of your own. (still park mine at the back of every car park in the widest space. I had an accident in a Golf GTI - many years back - after the accident I noticed the MOT had run out by 3 days. I was extremely worried to say the least - Nothing ever came of it and the insurers paid out. You are doing the right thing by drilling down to a granular level, we all know the reputation of insurers that if they can wriggle out of paying out or paying out a reduced amount because of clause "X" they will. Sometimes it's best to air on the side of caution. Do you know who their insurers are and their policy? ( if this has been mentioned, apologies)

    Car Covers any recomendations.

    Forgive me for the question I can see the advantages for a car cover, however can they cause moisture to build ie corrosion?
