  1. ive had this done all surface rust was ground off cleaned up then primed up to stop it coming back then dinatrol applied also had all crossmembers and doors filled wasn't cheap at 500 quid though jr classics did it near Doncaster
  2. Nice one Result!! Was always quietly confident
  3. I'd measure how far back the tip of the exhaust is from the back of the tyre then on the front I'd measure the tip of the bumper to the front tyre if the rear is less it should clear the rear the front may catch going forward though you won't know this until you try, I feel your pain I've always had low cars and found sometimes going on a different way will clear my starlet is a lot lower than the celica but always clears slopes like your driveway as the bumpers are shorter but the chassis scrapes everywhere, as the celica clears most speed humps etc but driveways slopes always etc seem catch cos of bumper lengths it's hard to explain, go out side and try I'm intrigued now
  4. It's to do with the wheelbase and bumper lengths aswell mate
  5. Missed that try going in forwards then you never know, I have to go on a angle on mine as not to scrape the sills as my drive go's up then down, car is lowered 35mm
  6. Try reversing in as the bumper is higher at the rear and by the time the front is at the kerb the back wheels will be in the garage and starting to pull the front up
  7. i had one k20 was great fun had lots of issues with suspension components though always little things constantly failing but my mates had none with his luck of the draw i suppose
  8. only one thing to do in this situation its time to get rid but next time research the car your buying have a lengthy test drive to find a comfy position , like mentioned earlier lemons are lemons, I've owned 6 Toyota's and had trouble with none of them shame you got a bad one
  9. This. This has made my decision - I didn't think what would happen if I scraped it on the track! That was the beauty of having a cheap MX5 is that, if I bumped it, I could fix it on the cheap. I'd be gutted if the Celica got damaged. Thanks Very true Looks like the MX-5 is the boy then! Thanks for all the help guys, hope you're all well? I miss coming here! Does it really matter if you not the fastest out there gerrain? as long as its fun that's the main thing over on ukstarlet owners a member tracks a 74bhp starlet Sr , keep it as cheap as possible for now , your old celica is way to clean for a track car ,understand the nostalgia thing I've still got my first car a starlet Sr 16 years I've owned it , least your father in law is keeping good care of it ......now go buy a mx5 !!!!
  10. Buy the mx5 you have to much love for that car if it was to get a scrape on track you wouldn't be able to leave it without fixing the damage or get a mr2 roadster very capable and cheap enough these days
