  1. I wouldn't worry about rusty brake pipes being an indicator, mine went but the underneath of the car is solid
  2. I might be a bit late to the party on this stuff as I normally hate anything that includes the word 'detailing' (it's just good cleaning lol) But I tried this stuff the other day to remove dried water spots left after washing the car. Some people use it on a dirty car but I wouldn't risk that. It seems ideal to use between washes if the cars just dusty or been rained on. A few sprays on each panel, wipe in gently with a cloth, leave a few minutes then buff off with a soft cloth. I think it's got wax or polishing elements in it so gives a good shine too. I'd recommend trying it. It's currently got a few quid off at Halford's too.
  3. Yeah I tried sanding and polishing the patches but it didn't look much better. Ended up just respraying bits
  4. They're very good. They re cut my diamond cut ones that were old, chipped and furred up. One of the few that actually do the cutting rather than farm it out to someone else. I had a look round and they had some lovely painted and coated stuff in they'd done. I'd recommend
  5. I know a really good place in Leeds if you're ever this way. If you are, let me know and I'll give you details
  6. I still wouldn't trust that. No way
  7. Axle stands I just bought the Halfords ones when they were on offer. Plenty good enough. Position under the subframe at the rear and main chassis rails at the front. That's what I do on the gen6 anyway. I wouldn't trust the jacking points on the sills.
  8. Wire wheel on a grinder will clean that up, then some rust treatment brushed on like Bilt Hamber then whatever paint or underseal you want. Bit of time but minimal cost to do yourself. That spare wheel well looks suspicious though. Looks like that might go through on harder inspection. Hard to tell from pics though
  9. I only ever use this type and they're really good and quick to use too. The ones I've got are Draper. https://www.toptul.com/en/2-2179-57907/product/Cup-Type-Oil-Filter-Wrench-For-4-Cylinder-TOYOTA-Engines-id545672.html
  10. Breakdown service or local mobile mechanic will be able to get it off
  11. I've always been tempted to remove the spare wheel as that is really heavy being full size. All the punctures I've had I've managed to inflate enough to get me home. Though if I remove it I'll probably rip out a sidewall the next day. Lol
  12. Looks good but it's still a 1.8 I assume he will be expecting offers. Thing is, looks good but does a good respray and smart interior add value to a 1.8 celica? Up to the buyer
  13. Just thought I'd add something to this. When I took the celica for its first MOT under my ownership, I'd done everything I thought needed doing in terms of safety, including new discs and pads etc. I got a call to say the brake pipes had actually burst on the rollers during the test. Not the bits you can see, but the bit where they go under the plastic cover halfway down the car. Now, your average guy would be hard pressed to visually spot that. If it hadn't been picked up at the MOT when would it have gone? The first time i broke heavily at motorway speeds? If someone pulled out on me? I'm really glad the MOT test did what it was supposed to there.
  14. New wipers Winter screenwash Lube hinges New tyres if pretty worn
  15. You cant get fully in there to clean but you can enough. The main part to clean is the little adjusting flap thing and that's fully accessible. I'd definitely clean the existing one, but its your call. Toothbrush, cotton buds and carb cleaner worked for me
