  1. It is funny you should say that, because most of the sets of Speedlines that I have seen come up for sale over the years, have been sets of 5..
  2. Any more updates on this fine original Glanza in it's homeland?
  3. Nice. Is the TD exhaust the 3 inch one that they have listed on their website, or was this something custom that they did for you? (Apart from leaving off the reducer)
  4. Nice, looks like you're making progress! I like the Tomei knob and gaiter, where did you buy them? And has this car got footwell lights on it? Also what is that gold packet infront of the shifter? Generic air freshener? Keep up the good work.
  5. Second hand only for genuine toyota. Otherwise aftermarket versions..
  6. Yeh I have to say I think that would be a great buy for someone even at that price. You could daily that for 10 years and I bet it'd still be in good shape and low miles by the end of it.
  7. Came across this beauty when looking through ebay. Bargain for someone who wants a reliable car (not mine)... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1996-Toyota-Starlet-1-3-Petrol-Man-only-4-400-miles-part-of-private-collection/254323488547?hash=item3b36dc7723:g:QIAAAOSwPp5dAXBC
  8. As per title. Is this a LSD or standard diff? Been told it is a Cusco lsd for a glanza but not convinced. Cheers
  9. How has the gold wrap been applied under the bonnet? Just lots of cut out bits to fill the gapes or has it been fully covered / separated somehow? Good luck with the forthcoming jobs.
  10. Not available in the OP's tyre size though... The only Toyos available are CF2. I have the same size wheels, general consensus is the Rainsport 3's are most popular. But wear out quicker than many other options. I do hear CF2's are good though and surprisingly inexpensive.. Here is the full selection of available tyres in this size: https://www.camskill.co.uk/m4b0s403p0/Car_Tyres_-_MPV_Tyres_-_People_Carrier_Tyres_-_14_inch_R14_inch_-_185_55_14_185_55R14
  11. Cool Glanza, looks the spitting image of what mine was when I first got it 10 Years ago! Mine came over with RSR springs too. Any chance you know the part number for the RSR springs you fitted? (May get another set). Thanks
  12. Yeh I second that, and my best mate 3rd's it. I actually thought you still made them Idrees?
  13. Yes there is a plastic white 'over clip' on the speedo cable end that you need to pull aside from the notch in the cable end whilst then sliding it down the speedo cable. Then a tug should get it off. My fingers aren't too fat so I was always able to get them behind the clock in situ to remove everything at the back, thankfully.
  14. Lucas bulbs are good, I have experience with them too. Those or Osram / Philips would be my choice. Not to knock the previous guy. I have tried those simply bulbs before in all sorts of bulb types. H7 h4 501 286 and they are poor. I mean they work for a short time, a few months, but have always gone pop.
  15. To mention on my Glanza there are 3 electrical plug connectors at the top: left, middle and right. Push in the squeezy clip located in the centre of each whilst pulling them out. Then there is a white plastic 'over clip' on the top of the speedo cable in the centre of the clocks, that sits in a notch where it connects into the back of the clocks. Feel it with your fingers. Prise it slightly from one side with your fingers whilst sliding it down and off the speedo cable. Then the cable will come out with a bit of a tug. Then the clocks will be free to remove. Reverse the process when putting back in.
  16. The most important thing I can recommend is buying the best quality bulbs for the clock lights i.e. Osram. I had a couple of experiences replacing the clock bulbs with basic brand bulbs and they lasted less than 6 months and then you have to redo it all again. The Osram's I've had in are years old and still good.
  17. You should put at least a jubilee / hose clip on there just to make sure it doesn't pop off from the pressure etc
  18. Quick update on explaining the mystery. I got in touch with Jay on TGTT who told me that: "Toyota started introducing a different evaporator housing from Dec 97 (coincides nicely with the mk2 V) which incorporated cabin pollen filters. As you can imagine in Japan this was a major feature as they are all about the air quality. Worth noting that it's not just as cut and dry as that. Pollen filters only became factory in 97, however before that you could still spec them as a dealer option. That means there's 1996 V's running round with them too albeit retrofitted." Therefore, this would also generally agree with why toyodiy parts catalogue has only 97+ V's listed for the pollen filters. Jay also mentioned that the EP82's never got them as they were obviously previous to this.
