  1. Speakers in.... The cloth covering on the 'speaker lids' was tatty and a few holes.... That got stripped off! I abandoned the plate, to secure the lids, so they are now stuck in with hi-tack foam tape. All in All 👍 2sav
  2. Just picked up from Amazon locker, screwdrivers out again tomorrow... 2sav
  3. 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. FORD AlloyNuts You are making steady progess and will really enjoy your first 'post-MOT' hoon... 2sav

  5. Cone_chopped Making progress.... 😵 2sav
  6. Re Above... ..... Here, the guy has cut off the square cone chassis & reinstalled it - flipped! - on top of his upgrade to retain the Clip-On factory cover. Quite neat TBH 2sav
  7. 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 RearSpeaker_below RearSpeaker_above 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...... 2sav
  8. ToyotaNation has legion data on the 'humble Crolla' m8 2sav
  9. Retro Rides..... Modding & Custom Performance. .... Oh! AND 'detailing' 2sav
  10. ...... not sure if have found this. Not sure it will help, but, whatevvz. 2sav
  11. 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. 2sav
  12. Have you tried Micks Garage, Ireland? #oops You Have! Lots of NLS $hite for obscure wheels [lyke us!] 🤐 2sav
  13. 👍 Spreading the Lurve ... GR8 2sav
  14. Did we ever get these.... ? 2sav
  15. Anyone on here frequent RR? Nice 2.0 GLi Executive, F reg, Hatch just popped up on a tredd.... Mmmmmmm.... So much 5stud lovelieness..... 2sav

  20. ..... This would be a 'load compensator/anti lockup valve'? Common to lots of cars [dunno about ABS tho?] ABS should make these odsolete.... BOL 🙂 2sav
  21. 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)? 2sav
  22. My pack of 10x 3MM black vinyl cap ends have turned up. They will block off Vac ports on the carb and manifold, nice and neat... 2sav
  23. Further to my ongoing 'carb tune/refresh'.... I popped for this MuchhoLonggo bowden Choke cable. I'm unhappy with how [I suspect] the autochoke is not always coming completely OFF. With a straightforward ON/OFF install there will be no doubt... and I can cut the choke almost immediately on straight running/non at all in warm weather. I will modify the T-pull on this, replacing with a button knob 🎱 Piccies, as always.... 2sav
  24. ..... hmm... The 'linkkie' was a Look At THIS helpful pointer >>> not a solicitors letter 😕 checking, the op seems it was a 'one off' visit..... 2sav
