Mate you do realise these things ONLY run a 3 bearing crank,:sad:   save the heartache drop a 3y or 4y straight in, :smile: they will most likely exceed the final turbo figure of the 12r any way naturally aspirated.

      A few people have told me that, back in the day, a common conversion for my 1984 Hiace (3y engine), would be to swap in the electronic distributor from a certain Tarago and do away with the old points system. 

      Now that I'm keen to go ahead on this, I can't for the life of me figure out which Tarago dizzy to get!?!

      Any help on this would be super appreciated!

      Hi all. I need some DIY advice. I have a 1999 Toyota Hiace LWB (my first car). According to the mechanic I need the horn replaced. I was told: 'Don't waste your money with us as this car is old. Find a horn at a wrecker and install it yourself - its under the front grill'.  (-_-)
      Has anyone replaced a Hiace horn? Is it difficult? Where do I start? Do I go to a wrecker or Supercheap Auto or ebay? Is it a specific horn? Is it tricky to get the grill off? Do I have to disconnect the battery?
      I need this done before an interstate drive in 2 weeks. My 'mechanic' experience is DIY servicing my sewing machineI, however I feel confident and up to learning how to fix my own car. The husband is super handy (has taken apart and fixed motorbikes etc), but busy leading up to the trip and hasn't dealt with this specific issue before. He is encouraging me to get it done by a pro as he can't afford to spend all day fixing the horn and other things that need to be done. 
      The other things I need to sort out are: replacing the plastic surrounding the headlight and indicator. The indicator is currently gaffer taped in place otherwise it falls out. I am hoping I can save money by learning how to fix my car myself.

      Well I have been working on this for a few years and I think it is only fair that I show everyone what I think is worth all that effort.

       

      it is a 1991 AE92 FXGT corolla. i have owned it for the past 5 years over which I have been working on slowly cleaning it up and making it into a clean and very stealthy car.
      This year I have been working with a panel beater friend and we cleaned it right back to not quite bare metal and spent almost 6 months getting the panels straight and clean enough for a fresh coat of factory black.

      Found this when looking at wheels on Gumtree. It seems Toyota Australia in 2008/09 approached Auto Salon to upgrade a Yaris and a Rav 4 for a car show.
      Almost a decade along the Yaris is up for sale. It appears to have also lost its original titanium wheels as well.
      https://autocity.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/witheren/cars-vans-utes/camouflage-toyota-yaris/1139136727
      Here is some original info on it:
      http://www.automobilesreview.com/auto-news/toyota-yaris-and-rav4-get-the-auto-salon-treatment/10756/
      And you can find plenty of articles on it including posts from the head of the project on other Yaris forums by googling: toyota camouflage yaris project ng 
      It would be cool if it could get into the hands of those that would really look after it. Hopefully a forum member picks it up.
