  1. I was really fortunate to score, from a dubbScener[4x100], a nice set of unkerbed OZ Polaris for a ton.

    15x7 et37... A verryyy close fit!

    A local breaker provided 16 FORD s/s alloy cone slipper nuts @£10.

  2. I have been looking at my rear Speakers... and wondering how to swap them out.

    Nothing shows how the 'beauty trims' come up/off the parcel shelf... No screws underneath.

    I grabbed the cover and pulled vigorously, fingernails under the edge... NOTHING... Fuelled with that obstinate fury, 'computer says No!' style, I heaved mightily AGAIN >> TWANGGG...

    A prybar will be a toolbox deffo when I'm doing it again!

    The retaining spring clips actually mate with the 'square formed/pressed steel' speaker cone chassis.... If you bin the speaker you lose the retainer holes = GR8

    I am considering cutting the cone out of the steel & installing the new cones inside the hole. Another way might be finding a cone/cover combo to go over the factory shelf hole OR Velcro to stick the original cover directly onto the shelf material...

    I will give it some thought......

    Could you please advise where I could obtain a legible vacuum pipe circuit for a 1991 1.3 2e Toyota corolla automatic plus power steering .The car is fitted with the K type carb and unfortunately the diagrams on line are extremely hard to see. It would be great if I could follow a diagram or even better have some photos of the vacuum valves etc. I have a problem with the choke breaker and am not confident with the work carried out by the so called mechanic. I would be extremely grateful for your help. Where I live it is extremely hard to find anyone with carburetor knowledge. Many thanks Keith

    Have you Googled 'corolla vacuum carb pipes' [... or similar?]

    I have come across a few Utubes on replacement corolla carbs and one guy who has made a 'hand drawn/simplified map' of the pipes... possibly Californian emission spec!

    The US based 'ToyotaNation' forum has a vast section on corolla and a 'search' in it may throw something useful up.

  4. Today I popped the trim off above the pedals, looking to pick up on the wiring to install my 'plip locking' kit. The loom is very densly wrapped as it exits the door boot.... I couldn't see any way of picking out the locking wiring easily.

    Plan B : I think I'm going to run 2 wires up into the switch base >> these will take the signals down, through the door jamb boot, and then into the control box. Bit of a faff BUT no loom chopping!

    Do it all another day.... Bloominn freezing out!

     

    One of my sidelights went off - 5W T10 - luckily I found one in an old Ring bulb kit, from poondland. I had to twist the holder with an OE spanner, inserted behind the headlight void.. Horizontally.. as the space is bare big enough for a childs hand.

    All sorted now

    Anyone had long test of LED T10 type bulbs (not jazzy BLOO ones)?
