Back on the road today, fully reco'd front suspension....
« on: April 29, 2005, 06:50:32 pm »
and a grin as wide as a mile after a wheel alignment by Pete at Marshalls in Newmarket. He particularly appreciated how clean everything is under there now.

I've been using a diesel '95 Toyota Caldina commuting up and down the Western motorway for the last 6 yrs and this old '89 100 is sooo much a nicer drive. So quiet.

The work i've done myself:

- new KYBs all round
- new outer CVs
- new bushes all through front suspension (some imported ex USA)
- new driver's window winder mech (USA OEM imported part)
- all vacuum central locking overhauled/repaired
- replaced headlights (reflector silvering had failed)
- overhauled transaxle with a Pick-A-Part diff
- torque convertor reco'd (by transmission business)
- repairs to dash, conversion to red LED backlighting and tacho fixed.
- backlight replaced on the shift lever with red LED
- replacement steering rack boot
- general engine tuneup/maintenance
- cambelt replaced (made my own lock-engine tool for the job).

Ian at Marshalls Alignment said its one of the nicest old 'trucks' he's seen for a while...

Now the big decision, keep it and enjoy some German engineering or find a new lucky owner.

You might see me on the Western motorway sometime.

Very jealous to see a car like yours treated in a way mine should be.  Great job.

"He particularly appreciated how clean everything is under there now."   Guess the KU wont be going in.  :laugh:   See you on the nor wester. 
Beating up parking wardens ain't a crime.
