    Dang! Rounded wheel nut

    the next size up torx bit hammered in there and the use of an impact gun in the garage should have that out in seconds. if not there are special tools designed for this or easy-out and the likes that a good garage may have to hand.

    It's dead!

    dont know if bek does these but you may find he would be cheaper on a quote than that. http://www.celica-club.co.uk/forum/index.php?/forum/234-bek8111/
  5. no you will pay for a whole month just for today if you do it now. wait until the first and then do it.

    Pressure plate and flywheel bolts

    most of the time you will find spring washers on the cover bolts. if they have spring washers then no thread lock is needed as these will stop them from coming loose. and reusing the old ones will be find if they are in a good state.

    Is corner weighting worth doing for non track cars?

    10cm difference on the front? that cant be right? thats like the front left wheel touching the arch and a 4inch gap on the front right. this must be a typo and if it 445mm FL then 5mm is nothing.

    PistonHeads Shed of the Week: Toyota Celica

    all true, for the gen 6. its a cheap car at the moment and will go forever. 4's and 5's have gone up in price now and good ones are in the £1000 or more bracket were as the 6's there are still a few about and are worth nothing really (give it a few years more and they will go up, but not yet). so for sub £1000 its a hard car to beat.

    Rust to Rome - Team Go Nads!

    i think thats what they call a "low temp racing thermostat" doesnt look accidental to me that one. so i hope you are getting some miles on it before you go just to find out if there is any under lying problems with the car. but good luck with the trip.
  14. think he is on about using the amp wire as in 4gauge +/-. if this is the case and as long as the wire is no thinner than the thickest wire connected to the battery then it will be fine over a length of 6" or so. (make sure the wire is rated for, as said above around the 125amp range) for joining the 2 wires together again nothing thinner than the wire its self. so if using a bolt then it will have to be big (like m10 or m12). but the main problem here is making sure that how ever you join it it is insulated from earthing out on any thing.
  15. you should use as big a cable as possible for the battery + and - if you use the same as what is in the car you will end up with voltage drop over the distance you are now passing voltage. here is a table for example, i havent read the page but the table looks right. http://www.caraudiohelp.com/car_audio_wiring.html and the gen 6 is 14.5 feet nose to tail. you should be in the 105-125 range i would have thought so putting you in the min of 2gauge to 0gauge at the length of the car. (4gauge as standard) but going bigger is always better. not always easier, but better.
