  1. ..... further to my 'wheelarch titivation'..... I tried a search locally for a cheap tin, matching the Toyota 182 blue. This caught my eye in theRange @£4.99 Vx Metroblue_metallic It'll do just fine 4me 2sav
  2. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOYOTA-COROLLA-13-METAL-CLASSIC-WHEEL-TRIMS-X4-/264302581702 ..... Bit salty on the price. Not Carina but 'period' at least! 2sav
  3. Ahhh.... When I got mine, 3yr ago, the lad who 'rescued it from the Banger Boyyz' put on MR2 alloys and then, to sell it on, put the steels back on >> sadly he mislaid one trim 😞 I went to Chester to collect it, I slotted on 15x7 OZ Polaris and skipped 4x Steels + 3 plakkie trims. The wheels are really smart, period correct. Ah well.... Good luck in your search [eBay is your friend] Get a few piccies up of yours 🙂 2sav
  4. ..... and no surprises there, then 👍 2sav
  5. MOT 08:30 tomorrow...... 2sav
  6. How might you quantify 'improvement over factory'? I assume half a million taxi drivers just had to settle for 'dealer spec'.... I will concede (given our poor relation status to the Celica.. lol) the handling is pretty sharp on a Carina 🙂 2sav
  7. https://www.gov.uk/report-pothole 😉 2sav
  8. ^^^ If in doubt = Swap it out.... for E10 proof hose 2sav
  9. Hi there..... Anyone looking to buy will hit the MOT history first. Going on condition overall/quality of repairs/interior you will get an offer ££ BOL 2sav
  10. I wouldn't know for sure.... But will that 'age' seat be a Corolla (of those model year) type? I don't know what model shares my '91 Carina II seats... 🤔 2sav
  11. Yes.... The 'Wax-Oil' <no relation!> smells just like WD-40. I stood the tin in direct sunlight until it got hot! Gets the pressure/blasting way up, too! It is a genuine 'shipbuilders swear by it!' Industrial metal preservative.... When it dries off it is effectively invisible.... White spirit will remove any overspray, onto bodywork, which might attract dirt and look smudgy.. [as one Detailer to another lol] 2sav
  12. Oil change sorted, sprayed the wiperarms matteblack, spraygreased the servo cables on the sunroof. I cut the undertray at the last oilchange, makes oil filter much easier to get at!. But it makes the plastic tray flop down into sight.... So.... A piece of soft alloy plate, folded over the tray edge, crimped and with an upcurve bend = no tray sightings! Bit of titivation of my arch edges... Finally... I sprayed all the pipes and bracketry at the rear & sprayed the inside arch lips + along the lower sill edge and floor margin. Super easy to use this aerosol [stood in bright sunlight for 20mins... Nice and Warm!]. 11.4 out of 10.... YaY 2sav
  13. Found one..... 100% resolved issues, works great! USB Camera, on Google app store (look for Shen Yau) 2sav
  14. Just dropped thru the letterbox.... GR8! Problem is, so the web has it, getting a reliable app to give seamless display. Fully functional and is giving me <slightly> flakey images. Need to roadtest some Cam apps 🙂 2sav
  15. Postman Pat 'bingg bongged' with my filter.... Now, just need a dry day (oil picked up on Tesco offer) 😉 2sav
