  1. Oooh.... Mmmmm... Ah! Yes... Perhaps googlefu is your friend. AFAIK all struts are created <in China> equal but have different ends [not many!] Search your type and try to find out what the *end type is and then go for min/max length... *muddy option = breakers yard and do some sleuthing 🙂 2sav
  2. Nope... Not me looking for one. Got all the Carina II love I need here, m8 2sav
  3. You may find some clues in 'platform code'..... The Carina II, I have, is T-series platform so common with 85-87 Celica. 2sav
  4. I'm going for a ..... Bit'o Bling! Stainless, no less... Replacing the 2 acorn nut (plus a random rusty nut) on the Cambox Cover. I need cheering up 2sav
  5. ...... my neighbour 'parking by braille™' again ¥π÷∆¶¢$¥€ !!! 😵 2sav
  6. Bit of an update on the Cambox gasket (with a good splodge of BlooHylomar!) + 4 new plugtube 'polo mints'. No oil leakage = oil on top notch & clean as Mazola 2sav. 😁
  7. Term 'cold air induction', here, is a misnomer.... FACTORY standard inlet piping is cold feed = you now eat fried air/under hood fumes. Looks 'cool' tho... 2sav
  8. Aye.... You'll struggle to score Cap + leads for £7 (N.O.S.)👍 Blueprint rotor arm around a fiver. Amazon ftw... 2sav
  9. Woot Woot.... Red hose plopped thru letterbox just now We Are ON 🎱 2sav
  10. Just the job for our BTCC Carina...... PaulinhoT to the BatFone.... 2sav
  11. ....... Brakes ! 2sav
  12. Ooof! You have some wants list, my friend... Sure you dont have AntiRollBush knock - where they go thru the eye - at the back? I think I have posted a link to the BIG calipers, 295mm off the Avensis I believe. MotorHog must be best for panels. Agreed - you cant do anything with suspension bushings (unless listed for the car) without the parts in bits... No use on a daily Keep it up M8 👍 2sav
  13. If you have a broadly similar profile across the area which is worn out (like not the hockey stick moulded corners) then Ebay 'buy by the metre' profile door seal could - mebbies - be added to replace a certain section. Superglue will quite effectively stick rubber, edge to edge.... Just a thought 😬 2sav
  14. Nice to see you still up for it...... I'm amassing bits for a carb tune up + replacing all the skinny vac piping, in RED 😜 Got a Vac gauge so I can tune 'on the drop', of Hg. Keep jogging on, m8 2sav
  15. Whilst in the mood for spending money.... ... I sourced 2M of Red silicone vac hose [4mm i/d] so that all vac leak worries will be cleared up before I start tuning. £3 Amazon 😉 2sav
  16. I have a fairly broad selection of combi spanners... Mostly noname and rough forge stamped 🙁 In TK Max, of all places, I spied some svelt, highly polished spanners. Not [sadly] in their very large 'clearance' tub but reasonably priced. #66092 £12 Loverly 🤓 2sav
  17. Northumberland is a BIG place.... Cheers m8 😜 2sav
  18. ..... More '92s than my '91 👍 Welcome Aboard 2sav
  19. Even better.. !! The leads have turned up [in a disconcertingly humongous box] only to fall out with a Dizz cap included... I will return the loose cap I ordered for full refund. WTG Amazon 😀 2sav
  20. Would 'moulded from yours' be easier/cheaper.... and with a small chin lip &or rear diffuser .. ?? 🤔 You getting n.o.s. dead cheap off a store shelf somewhere .. ? 2sav
  21. Oooff! 'two bucket' wrongun.... 2sav
  22. Just been rummaging through junk boxes on Amazon.... Looking for bits for the 4A-F. Scored lucky with a set of moulded Bosch 7mm leads @£10 😉 Blueprint Rotor arm and Intermotor Cap. Although Toyota have a good rep on quality, and the car has only done 90k, I think all new parts + carb tune will be a good move 2sav
  23. Twice Toyota = Twice the lurvve.... 2sav
