you should do a starlet engine rebuild master class, charge everyone 40 quid to watch and you will be rolling in it lol.

In the last 10 days:

Starter moter gave up - got replaced after a weekend of bump starting it (sure this caused much amusement for my neighbors)

King lead rubbed through - got a celica one from a scrap yard for free and had to move the conector as it was to short and i would of had to wait a week for a starlet one to be sent in.

Now i am losing power intermitently and i think its the turbo :( (still running ct9) but just to be sure am checking all the vacums tonight fingures crossed

They say bad things happen in 3's!
