  1. Happy Birthday GiJoe90!

  2. Thanks I often wonder what happened to her and if she is still about today
  3. A good wash, clay then 2 coats of SRP and 1 coat of UDS. The SRP makes a lot of dust when buffing it off (as does the UDS to some extent) so give it a final wipe down/buff with a good microfibre cloth to get the dust off and bring up the shine. A good work out but will last months and will look stunning B)
  4. +1 for AG Super Resin Polish. Great for covering up minor imperfections. A couple of coats should give you a really good finish. Then seal with Extra Gloss Protection or Ultra Deep Shine (Good on dark cars) If you want a permanent fix, you're either going to have to pay up for a proper correction by a detailer, or master the art of high speed polishing yourself B)
  5. Rain X is fantastic stuff, I've used it for many years with no problems. You shouldn't really have to use wipers in heavy rain if you're travelling 60+mph. Best way to buff it off with some paper towels to get it to work as it should. Give your wiper blades a wipe with the cloth you use to apply the Rain X and you won't have any trouble with judder, unless the wipers need replacing.
  6. Hello folks, been a while and don't know how many peeps I knew are still on here but thought I'd check you're all behaving yourselves and enjoying the world of Toyota! Thought I'd check my login still works (and it does!) Les, when did you get management rights!?!

    I can recommend Red Dot Discs. They do drilled, grooved or a combination of the two! Joe
  9. Hi, Thanks guys! I'll be trying the WD40 later on, I've left the lead off the plug to see if it'll dry out the inside in all this nice weather we're having. Now I wish I'd bought me a T-Bar! Anyway, I'll let you know how I got on! Thanks, Caroline I had a similar problem when I changed my TRD HT leads for Magnecor ones. Couldn't get a good seal around the top of the block with the Magnecors and after a heavy shower, 3 cylinders!. Ended up putting the TRD's back on. Similar to what the others have said, take the leads off, clean around the top of the block with WD40 & clean the rubber of the HT leads. Also make sure it isn't cracked. Let it all dry out throughly then replace. Joe
  10. Thought I'd pop my head in and say to the pimp of TOC! I'll be around to see your new toy soon ;) Joe
  11. Here you go mate Linky 10% off if you're a Gold Member Joe
  12. You'll find standard shocks wear out quicker with lowering springs. My front ones went soon after it was lowered so I fitted KYB +20% stiffer ones. The rears were fine though I used the Fensport lowering springs which were superb. Before: After: Joe
  13. I thought for a minute you'd blinged up the car wheel wise or something mate! B) You must have arms like Popeye Jerry, all that wrist action! :P Good job but you missed a bit.........all the number plates are so dirty you can't read them! And I hope you shut your sisters sunroof before washing! Joe
  14. Have a good one matey Joe
