    Quick question - What size is the 'gazebo' that you used as your spray booth, wouldn't mind creating something similar myself.

    Cheers

      I haven't seen that, I'll have to find it, cheers!

      How are the vacuum hoses etc. at the back of the engine? Might be worth renewing them now while it's on the floor, they're a right pain to get to when it's in the car.

      I wouldn't be in a rush to do it again. Be happy that yours still has a healthy clutch! Yeah I'm staying with the standard clutch. Lots of the clutch manufacturers supply the same clutch kit whether its st185, st205, Caldina etc. So if they can handle st205 or Caldina power then they should be enough for any light tuning I plan to do.

      Get the genuine replacement from Toyota. as they have a heat protection wrap where required.

      Love seeing these come together, the gearbox is a beast in weight.

      Yeah thanks for that, I removed and checked them and they all look good, although the heat wrap was missing off one so I put fresh heat wrap on it.

      It's a 6x3 gzebo, we got it off donedeal. Its snug enough for a full car but still perfectly doable if you are careful

          Haha yes, the sledgehammer was for removing the box from the engine!
