Re: Back in the gang

Bit of a bargain Vince - offroading in your neighbourhood would make short work of them though!

Sorry about the crap photo but it was on my phone with a finger in the way - and I'm full of cold and knackered!

Petrol 2.7 (same engine as Vince's) with 63k miles. Only been in the country 2 years. Just drove 130ish miles to bring it home - lovely power delivery from the engine, no boiling hot transmission tunnel and only about 1/3rd of a tank of fuel used! big_smile

The bits that it needs?

1) Some tax!!
2) A few scrapes on the corners and plastic arch mouldings tidied up.
3) A stereo that works in the UK.

That seems to be about it!

The price of this loveliness? £2400!

Got it from AK Motors in Farnworth near Bolton - he has some Surfs on eBay. He had 8 there, under cover, and he seems like a decent chap.

Re: Back in the gang

So thats £1500 for mods then? big_smile

Re: Back in the gang

£1000 of my mod money already gone on a 47" 1080p internet enabled 'supertelly' Vince.

1st things will be servicing. Battery's not so hot. Chap gave me a new one but the handle came off as he was carrying it to the truck and the case split! Typical!

Next few weeks, rad flush, coolant and oil. ATF looks good and red and doesn't stink, oh and the timing belt - Oh hang on, I dont need to!! big_smile. I'll probably just do +2" springs, no bodylift for now. Vicki says she wants to be able to get into this one!  roll

I'd have preferred a rear mounted spare actually, but it is what it is!

Re: Back in the gang

FYI, Toyota recommend using Type IV ATF (the same as used in Lexus'), it'll say so on the dipstick.
It's roughly £8 per litre though! It just makes the transmission shift more smoothly really, a good quality Dexron III works OK.

Is the telly going on the wall in place of the old one? You'll feel like you're in the screen! lol

#3709-10-2010 14:16:25

Re: Back in the gang

The telly is a second one believe it or not!

The one on the wall is staying put, connected to the Wii and a DVD player. Somewhere we can shut Neve and her mates! The other one is going on a stand in the back room where we can sit in front of a real fire and nod-off to Christmas TV when the weather gets colder smile
