Re: ISO: "Rain Gutter" roof rack mounts

What Petros wrote! I owned a bike shop for 30 years, and just recently was talking to a best buddie shop owner "from the days," and he said that Saris/Thule/Yakima racks for rain gutters are a dime-a-dozen nowadays, because of the change in car bodies. Naturally, owning a T4WD, I'm set for eons (wel...

Re: Vinegar Method Of Cleaning Radiator & HOTTER HEAT ◄

OK - for some reason (old age?) I thought it connected to an compressor. My bad.

Re: Vinegar Method Of Cleaning Radiator & HOTTER HEAT ◄

Yup - removing the heater core was too daunting for me!
I figured I would face that if the core started leaking, which it has not.

Re: Car Cover for the Tercel

Granted, we in STL do not receive the depth of snow you receive, but we do get rain/freezing rain (like several times since last week). Our...

Re: 1985 4WD Deluxe

Hey, Welcome fellow Missourian! Where/when did you buy the T4WD? There was someone on here in January of 2018, offering 3 T4WDs. He claimed he lived in Carter County off US 60, deep in one segment of the Mark Twain National Forest. He never followed up on the results of his For Sale email. https://t...

Re: Picking up my first Tercel next week!

Welcome! Do you have a link to the car's ad (or info on it from the seller)? ► What splatterdog wrote, esp. on the front arms! Not to be an alarmist , but that is about the only Achilles Heel of our cars. 'Course, the rear is not unimportant! See ESP https://tercel4wd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=...
