  1. Bit of a topic for debate here, but generally hypothetically what sort of tips mite anyone have for spotting a non rusty car/celica?I My initial tuppenys worth!! Scotland seems to b a rustier hotbed/belt. Be wary of low milers. Obviously check mot history for signs also btw would any one rule out previous rusty brake pipes as a precautionary precursor? Get one of those camera on a stethoscope thingys and insert it into the sills with the top cover removed as well as the osr subframe. Anyone else with any more experience have any other useful hacks/ideas on the subject?
  2. No thanks I'll have a look in there cheers for that
  3. Hiya anyone know the easy/easiest way to manipulate photos/pictures to see what design ideas/colour change s will potentially look like before implementation?!!
  4. Oh rite is that like a wash n wax shampoo but with like a polymer type coating instead of wax that's interesting have u got a link for something like that?
  5. I tried a couple of the abundant cheap Chinese specials a while back 9H MrFix etc for a starter and they do seem to have done something I've not really paid too much attention to it and it's hard not to be psychosomatic over it but it does appear to be very hydrophobic, much better than wax at a comparable price appearing to be easier to clean and slightly shinier I don't know what the active ingredient s are but I assume either something similar or just a much cheaper version maybe like rain x or something, anyway applied it myself pretty quickly and easily, not half as shiny or magical as claimed unsurprisingly and I don't know how long it may last but would use again instead of wax as it does seem quite protective or upgrade to a proper ceramic so it's interesting to hear about some of the proper brands and how shiny/glossy they appear and whether you've all applied them yourselves and what they've cost?
  6. Just to add to your dilemma lol https://www.gumtree.com/p/toyota/toyota-celica-red-edition/1326188481 https://www.gumtree.com/p/toyota/-limited-edition-2005-toyota-celica-blue-140bhp-1.8-16v-motd-3keys-/1326404740
  7. Lol v impressive i usually tow an mot failure breaker car behind me just in case i need any impromptu spares
  8. i usually like to travel lite with minimum load but I do like to tinker when I'm about too and also in case of any eventuality s what minimum tools would you recommend carrying in the boot I can't remember whether my gen 7 came with a tool kit but I'll have removed it anyway?
  9. It looks like you ve left the toothpaste on them there lol
  10. Cheers for your input G yeah brakes is usually a good bartering opportunity for a cheap diy upgrade.. What about tips on spotting a modern oil burner particularly on pre-facelifts?
  11. Bit of a general discussion one this one I'm just curious to pick other more superior opinions on here!! What sort of mileage/ and/or age do people find maintenance type costs rise on celicas/Toyotas/generally? Backdrop: was playing with the idea of also trying to pickup a cheap preface mk3 mr2 post summer to play with too but interested in people's opinions generally I've had v high milers some with motorway in the past trouble and corrosion free till scrapped and some lower milers but not quite perfect, my own gen 7 s gone 120-140k with me with not a huge history and I've just had the usual common things rectified (tho thinking a clutch change can't be far away) What sort of things do people particularly look for on high milers/older cars? PS.apols not posted for a while been busy but still reading.
  12. You could try haggling a bit with them but they're good prices Imo
  13. Cheers, and now just one more thing can anyone recommend a good chiropractor!! Think it d be easier trying to remove the pistons through the spark plug oles!!
  14. Hey cheers for the tips guys I'll try them just trying to fit on tsport metal-like pedals you see gotta be one simplist but most awkward mods incidentally does anyone know how the gen 7 pedal foot-rest fits in and out as well?
