    So last weekend was doing a little maintenance, figured I'd adjust the handbrake as wasn't great, well that turned into this weekends job!
    Now have new discs, pads, handbrake shoes, calipers, flexi hoses and metal brake pipes!
    Found one caliper pretty much seized and the other stiff so just fitted new.

    Did an emissions test too after fitting different cat converters and doing a few other things, normally gives a bit of hassle but straight through for a change.

    Now i've finally grasped that its the polishing it off rather than the putting it on that makes the difference i can see my 90 getting a full rattlecan respray at some point . Rattlecan paint mixed to match from a specialist is entirely different from any of the shelf colour code paint .

    I used Motornutz Paint specialists for a match up for the LC5.. I emailed them all the specifics and codes and asked them "Is it definitely Metallic" etc etc... When it arrived iv never known a colour be so far from the original, And it was definitely NOT metallic.. Never even responded to my emails.... The specialist paint mixers are Good, But id avoid the on line ones.... JMO Shayne...

    Agreed Higgy it took me years to find one i could drive to in Cardiff and even then there was much debate about what Toyota 202 they should mix out of a possible 4 or 5 i'm guessing from the glance i got of the computer . The decided on solution i liked very much "phone the old guy he will know" :lol:
