  1. was looking at the car today on the drive parked next to my mk3 fiesta. so my celica is the gen7 X-reg year 2000 prefacelift and it stuck me today that the car is 20 years old. but for some odd reason it just doesnt look like a 20 year old car but much younger. even inside it doesnt feel dated to me. now maybe thats because im comparing it to my 25 year old fiesta and my brothers 30 year old corrado and relatives older cars (bmw's etc) and most of all it drives far better than all 20 year old+ cars iv been in. anyone else get that feeling or is it just me?
  2. I got a custom setup but if your battery is good then even a 10w panel will be more than enough. I will get the link for you when i get onto the pc. Heres the link: https://thargo.com/product/bluefusion-mono-solar-panel-10w-20w-50w-100w/ 13 quid plus delivery. I use it in my fiesta which has got a sulphated battery due to mechanic hoarding the car for a month in winter without starting it. I checked 2 days ago and battery was at 12.9v. Panel sees direct sunlight for about 5 hours. Now depending on where you park and where the panel will face you can work out the panel size you need. This 10w one works good in winter. I added a reverse blocking diode to it and its good to go. Much better than the big amorphous panel i got from halfords which was physically larger and made less current.
  3. Not seen that happen to factory paint.
  4. From what i read on forums many of these people with the claims are in new Zealand.
  5. solar charger working well for me. checked today and its floating at 13.2v so thats good.
  6. dont mess with peoples cars, thats all i can say. one day they will mess with the wrong car and if they get caught well....
  7. a lot of blaggers out there. got to keep your eyes on them. i think i know who your on about that was claiming 270bhp na on the 190 engine on facebook. no dyno printout to prove it.
  8. Someone on this forum used a lawn sprinkler under the car.
  9. What i dont like about most bodyshops is that when they weld things up they don't cavity wax the back sides of the weld and dont use proper zinc based paint to stop it from rusting again. They all treat it like your going to sell it on after the works done. Hence why iv started doing it myself.
  10. Looking this up it doesnt seem to be a track event. So what do they look at if not laptimes?
  11. I get people spending 600 quid for undersealing a Bentley or ferrari. But on a car that costs less than a grand a lot of people need to justify the cost. Majority of these old cars are just one big bill away from the scrapyard.
  12. cavity wax is easy enough to apply with the aerosols and extension wands. waxoyl as mentioned above doesnt really harden and can come off over time. stonechip e.g upol gravitex works well for the underside.
  13. took photo of how the metal valve looks on the car. no more dry rotting rubber valves any more.
