Welcome to Celica Club UK
Ok. Just had my 48th birthday and decided it's time to get the Celica sorted out and back on the road (hopefully).
The ball is rolling!! Celica booked in to get the welding done and then get it through the MoT. Fingers crossed it doesn't need a lot of work to pass the test. I think my only worry is the brakes as they haven't been used for nearly four years although it has been kept in my garage with the occasional venture to just outside the garage for an engine start and warm up. Will the caliper pistons be seized?
There isn't much fuel in the tank so I'm hoping that means I won't have to drain it out. Thinking to add 5 litres of fresh petrol from a jerry can before I start it, just to dilute any old fuel in the tank. I have been starting it from time to time anyway and letting it warm right up so the fan cuts in and out several times although not for the past 6 months or so. Had no starting or running issues whatsoever when I started it last around Christmas time 2020. I did add a couple of litres of petrol about a year ago (I think) so maybe that will have helped dilute and use up older fuel since then. Getting excited now to get my baby back on the road and out for a nice cruise. Might be quite a quiet cruise as I've noticed the original Toyota stereo has stopped working. Mmm strange. Well I'll enjoy listening to the engine instead. So tomorrow evening after work get the cover off, tyre pressures topped up, oil and coolant checked, 5 litres of petrol added and out of the garage for a final check before it goes for welding and MoT.
