Re: Another Seattle AL25 member

Yesterday I took the Tercel in to the local locksmith shop which is owned by a previous helicopter instructor of mine. We re-keyed all the locks to the code found on the passenger side lock, so that everything operates with one key now. Today my friend and I headed over to Xirdneh’s place and picked...

Re: 1983 Toyota Tercel 4WD SR5 : Life in Pictures / Lost & Found: RESTORATION DOCUMENTED!

I am so glad that you have such an appreciation for these 80’s Toyota’s. If I had my way I would probably have a garage full of old Toyota’s too. My wife makes sure that doesn’t happen though.

Paintless dent repair guys have really perfected a lot of techniques to remove small dents and dings using plastic tools to massage the dent out from the back of the panel
A lot of dealerships use them to fix small dents.

Re: Another Seattle AL25 member

Thanks Petros. It appears that Toyota no longer has them available so I’ll get ahold of Xirdneh.

Fifth gear has a couple little chips in it so for $45 I’m gonna see if Toyota has one still available. If not it will probabl...

Re: Another Seattle AL25 member

The windshield on the Tercel was leaking because of rust on the windshield flange. I had the windshield removed so that I could remove the rust and put a fresh coat of paint on it. https://i.imgur.com/RJy0R5r.jpg Then I had a new windshield installed. Then yesterday morning I drove over to the shop ...

Re: 1983 sunroof car part out

I also have a tan sunroof removed that I probably won’t be using if anyone wants it.

Re: WATER LEAK ON DRIVER SIDE FLOOR

My glass did end up breaking even when a professional tried to remove it. Of course it might have been intentional so that I would have had to buy a new one. The factory way of installing the trim clips is to glue them in place.

Re: Alternator alternatives?

Kinda sounds like it could be a potential regulator problem too. Check that as well before replacing an alternator.

I had the windshield removed and that revealed the whole windshield lip was covered with rust scale and even had a few pin holes. Fourtunately after cleaning it up with a wire wheel on a grinder i...
