The Carina Journey

Recommended Posts

All sounds really great Brian, glad you enjoyed yours. I like the look of the Subaru's, and have often thought of owning one, but I'm enjoying the Carina far to much.
The car has had new parts fitted, that will be coming up in a video in the future, I think I've filmed up to episode 54 so far, and these videos will feature some Hard Race parts, along with some Ultra Racing parts to come in the future. A lot of the parts I am ordering aren't "in stock", so I normally have to wait about 4-10 weeks, hence why I filmed lots of episodes in advance.
Thanks for the nice comments and memories


Best of health to enjoy it. It’s pretty much a bombproof car if looked after - my Avensis (59 plate, 128,000 miles is doing great too) and my Lexus GS450h (56 plate) is superb at 117,000 miles

I stopped off in Halfords on Sunday, and used my owners club discount card to pick up some new McLaren cleaning products. Here's the first video about the glass cleaner they sell.

Well another video has just gone live on my youtube channel. As a lot of you know, I film these episodes about 8-10 weeks in advance as I'm finding it extremely difficult to buy the parts I need to modify my car.

It seems silly, but a lot of the time people are just unwilling to help or know of the parts I need, but despite coming close to giving up last week and just buying a hot hatch, as sadly my father passed away (hence the video release delay), I'm pushing on, and trying to spend some money on parts I would like.

Thanks for sticking with my project.

As it's not very nice out (lol), how about watching my latest video, let's see if I can get it to 100 views.

I thought I'd try some of the new McLaren wheel cleaner product from Halfords the other day. Here's what I thought..

I've tested out another Mclaren cleaning product, and thought I'd share my view on it with you all.

I was wondering if anyone who reads my thread would be able to help me with a few parts I'm after. I've tried the usual places, but I'm not having much luck.

Firstly I'm after a rear boot spoiler, like pictured below. I've found a few on cars that are being sold on market place for around the £300, which is okay, as I do need a couple of good doors as well, and I've also found a guy that makes them in the east part of the world, for around $200 and $100 for shipping, but would all of my followers be able to check under the stairs, in their sheds and garages etc.. as it would mean a lot to me if someone who likes the project had one.

 

Many thanks.

Hello, nice journey 😉 I'm in the process of fixing up my Carina as well. If you still have the original radio and are planning to get rid of it, I'd appreciate selling it to me. The one in there now is terrible aftermarket crap haha

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
