Can anyone advise me if there is a common paint defect reported on 2009 IQ models?
On my vehicle the top layers of paint are peeling or delaminating away and exposing the grey (i presume galvanised) primer coat.
For completeness the colour of the vehicle is white.
I noted some comments from people with similar problems on the Toyota facebook pages from 2015.
Toyota naturally state as a mantra that their paint warranty is for 3 years, which is correct. On the other hand I am not so sure they want to be known as a company whose paint finishes only last 5 years
I need to order some touch up paint for my 1981 Toyota Hiace camper van. I know the colour code is 358 Orange but have no idea where to order the paint from or what kind I need to buy. I'm literally touching up small patches of rust-treated bodywork so a spray would be perfect. I had a little look online and got a bit flummoxed by talk of cellulose, base coat, metallic and lacquers. Help!
I nave a Toyota Avensis GLS AUTO 1762cc registered January 99. I has done 109,000 miles approximately and the registration is S240 WCA. It is dark green and it has been absolutely great and I don't ever want to part with it !
However lately I have seen small signs of rust on the "black" trim round the windows which looks like either black satin or black matte or some kind of black (but not black gloss). Has anyone any information on this as I will rub it down and touch it up or preferably spray it but I want the correct colour match. The name of a supplier would be a bonus.
Hi. Want to share some pictures of my 2006 Aygo. Bought as standard, invested about 1500 pounds into it to look like this. Its not over yet, planning to respray rear brake drum in black and front calipers in red and thinking about some decals on the sides. Maybe it will be helpful for others who also planning to do some changes on their aygo's.
Lenso 15" Samurai D1R alloys with 195/45/15 tyres ~ £630.
Rear brake drums and calipers respray ~ £35 if you buy paint yourself, i was quoted £80 to do it at garage.
Windows tinted for £90 in lime black 5%
Spoiler itself = £70 on ebay
Roof, mirrors respray in black+spoiler respray & fitting = £400
seat covers = £47
custom car mats ~ £40-50
resprayed rev counted and fan rings myself with the can of red paint. Mixed the right paint at halfords for £17. You just need to say the color code and wait.
Steering wheel cover £10 (now i took it away coz it was slightly too big).
Audio speakers Pioneer TS-g1021i 4" and TS-g1022i 4" (you can choose any brand for any price but the size that matters here. If you buy bigger ones than 4" you may find it difficult to install. To be honest the sound quality is better but still poor because the tiny speakers can't do any BOOM BOOM stuff. For base you may need to look for under seat subwoofer or one in a back).
Toyota Seat belt pads from amazon
Gear knob and new red leather cover. Leather cover takes so time to change because you need to take the plastic frame carefuly and sew the new one on (my wife helped with this one :D )
For more extreme gear knob fans i would recommend to look for these ones and if you buy please post some pictures because i am thinking about one myself but its not a priority at the moment.
Peek a boo sticker £1.89 :D
Tiny areal with red tip :)
