    What A Prat?

    yep - dont panic its not all bad. on the caseing somewhere there should be a hole about the size of the end of a paperclip (funny old thing thats what you use to eject the case - a paper clip.) locate the hole and stick a paper clip down it - you should find the cartrage ejects manually - if not take to the nearest halfords they have tools for just this problem, and are able to eject the cartridge for you
  4. ok a little off topic but this may help - My everyday runaround is a 51 plate 2.2hdi peugeot 407 (large car), it costs me £70 to fill her from scratch and i get just over 800 miles to a full tank. Motorway driving with the cruise control set at exactly 70. round town on everyday sort of trips i can get just short of 500 out of a tank onbouard computer constantly updates the MPG so roughly i am getting motoway - 56 town - 39/41 oh yes and by the way its not your bog standard 407 or 110BHP its the 149 BHP version hope this puts you in the right direction and sorry couldnt help more
  5. Cooking - Roast Duck with orange sauce - Boiled and Roast Potatoes - Coliflower, leeks, fresh garden pees, white sauce and thick onion gravy - all washed down with at least to bottles of the red stuff
  6. Fizz, can i make a suggestion mate that will save you all this hassle - 1. you know where i live and i can do sheffield in 50 mins and its a bit further north than you (only kidding mate) 2. seriously - order the tent from the shop in sheffield for collection not delivery and pick it up on the way to JAE (thats presuming that JAE is this year is south of me and you. just a thought
  7. Quick Question then Guys seeing as we all so knowlegdeable on these mobile phone things with the N73 - if i down load the software does it make the phone into a personal GPS or is it a satnav system? confused you will be!!!!!!
  8. Fizz, Missus has the N73, i have an N95, both fantastic phones and not had any software problems like have been reported before with both these phones, seems to be ok and we are both big air and text time uses. just my opinion though = but i would try and wangle for an N95
  9. Looks ok but from what you describe i'd put my wallet back in my pocket and back away slowly
  10. Jerry - Quick tip mate dont go turning them unless the electrics fail, did it on my MKII and took me ages to get them to lower fully on the electrix after that, had to fiddle around till i got them back to were they ariginally came from.
  11. Snap - i just getting loads of characters too - gutted about the smash mate - but as long as driver and passengers are ok then thats the main thing
  12. you could also try these - i know a small buissness that used these and has not problems at all. Fast Hosts

    New Supra Owner

    Hi ya - you say it hasnt had any mods , the fuse popping sounds to me like some sort of electrical mod has been done to the car - bodged, found out it didnt work and not be taken out correctly - check for any wireing that doesnt look like it should be there, any wires coming through the holes in the bulk head from behind the dash. only saying because i found four on my MKII were somebody had tried to fit extra dials - oil pressure etc and made a right pigs ear of it.
  15. Dont know if this will help at all Phil, but my old Mkii Supra had the one in thats featured in my sig. i had one or two problems with it when i first got the car and it was that complecated there were only a couple Techies in the country that were able to offer the solution to fixing the problem, so honest oppion is that its a tricky road to go down, but asume that the easiest of the two ways would be to use an old toyota part as apposed to a custom fit. sorry cant be any more help mate
  16. i remember that all too well 1968 - and no jokes about reaching the big 40 next year thankyou :!Removed!:

    Tyre Dressing

    By far the best :- I use Meguiars Endurance (High Gloss Tyre Protection Gel). Never use anything else
  18. Leeky, i know what your saying mate - i have driven a couple of mkiv's and they just dont seem to have that raw, four wheels and a box type feel of the two and some of the early three's. have seen a couple of good MKIII's on the market with quite low milage for their age - spotted the other day a 1989 (G) full service history and only 73,000 on the clock going for £800 is is not bad, only prob with it was it was red - dont like em in red - just a personal thing but it just dont work for me
  19. i want one - and a two and a three and a four - would love to own the whole lot Two to four is possible - but the whole thing is just not on the cards that is one awsome beast
  20. Mk1 supra i think - the photo is not that good and the mk11 is a vastly superior model
  21. JJ you are an absolute diamond my lovely - thats exactly the video Jerry - I might be getting to to the wrong side of 40 but i do remember you very well - didnt we have quite a long discussion over the forum when i changed the engine?????? oooops typo ment the 5M-GE (no she wasnt turbo'd but still scared the pants off me) leeky - sorry mate wont be able to make JAE this year as i wont be in the country - will be fighting for the good of all men against some horrible peeps in the middle east - but thats a different story and not getting into a political battle with anybody - just doing my job before anybody says anything. :censor: :!Removed!: :censor: :!Removed!:
  22. Ive just re-read your post 4.0ltr V8 under the hood of a rear wheel drive, light as hell, unpradicable, skid on a single grape sort of car. LMAO - i need to get my hands on that
  23. Leeky my main man - hows things looking at the photo's it looks as if you are doing alright for your self - any body still running one of the old girls cant be doing all that bad. Scary hmhmhmhmhmh not quite the word i would have used but ok i can live with that one - ask Fizz what its like to have the pop up head lights screaming into your rear view mirror at about 120mph on a rainy night. The back end on mine tended to lift slightly at about 115mph, bearing in mind she was totally stock but did have a 5m-GTE under the hood, i had her up to 128mph on the clock then lost the bottle and backed off but she was still accelerating. But i must admit for track days and a bit of drifting and hand brake control i could put a nissan 200sx to shame and have done :censor:
  24. ok guys i got all the photo's downloaded and back up on USB hard drive - but on last questions Has any body still got the video that was made - with the sound track to put it etc ie the finished article thanks again Gus
