You will have motivation... I'll make sure of it.

Here's a couple snaps I got of her at the Squires Cafe Jap Night

That's just cheating.

That looks so clean 👍 chrome detailed celica heater controls...you mentioned nothing of those. Tell me more

It was something I'd completely forgotten I had until the other day. Just the blower speed and recirculation knobs with chrome strips on that's all. Gen4 Celica if I remember rightly. Would suit your chrome gear knob in yours.

Along with photos of the as yet unnamed Paseo, I took Pauline out for some photos and the weather got all moody. However a nice little spot in Exmoor was found:





























So photgraphed is all the different things I've done to this one lately. The white leather, cup holder from a Celica, Gen4 Celica heater control knobs (chrome ends), Starlet center console arm rest, JDM tail lights, Wind deflectors and headlamp protectors. I'm sure more will change soon.

I've been out and snap happy this afternoon. I took this old girl down along the local canal to just outside of an old engine house. The old engine house is famously known to be the home of Howard Jones, singer songwriter and producer.

The decals will come off when I've printed up replacements (once I've moved I'll set up the cutter again) and the Si stickers will be remade correctly and put in the correct place.

I don't really do the miles anymore. However before I start using it heavily I need you to fit the new fuel tank, as it gets annoying putting 15 quid in at a time lol

Long time no speak... of Pauline the Paseo.

After a long drunken chat with Lost Cause one night in a pub, we came to the conclusion that this car will get some changes.

First of all the interior was really clean, so I removed it and put it in my Galliano. That then made way for the white/offwhite/tipexwhite/milk coloured leather to slot straight into this one. I've also fitted the genuine Toyota wind deflectors that I'd had fitted to my mile muncher previously. I want to keep as many parts as I can genuine Toyota items. I've got no photos of these yet but I'll take her out soon and get some photos.

However today I did fit the genuine Toyota center arm rest. Now this is actually from a Starlet unfortunately, so it the bracket is slightly narrower and shorter than what it would be on a Cynos. That means it doesn't bolt into the standard holes. So I drilled a couple holes and fitted it as low as I could. The down side is that it's actually still quite high, but finding a Cynos one is about as hard as finding a needle in a dark barn filled with haystacks.

I've also fitted a set of headlamp protectors too, and again no photos. Next up I want to source a set of original fog lights (I knew I shouldn't have sold those to Mick) and fit those.

I'm in two minds of whether or not to fit an aftermarket stereo and then fit my subwoofer and amp. In the long run I'd like those to go in the convertible so I may not bother with that. We will see.

Thanks Mark.

I've given this old girl a good polish thismorning and she's looking alot better for it.






Other than that I've had a fiddle with the radio to see if it will work, and it won't. I'll have a quiet drive up to Lost Cause and get him to fix it. If he doesn't I'll be disappointed in his lack of skills. I've placed a set of clean genuine floormats in and put the aftermarket ones over the top to keep them nice. I can remove the aftermarket ones for shows and photo purposes.

I also swapped over the two worst wheel trims for two slightly better ones I had in my hoard.





Sadly though I can't replace the bootlock swivel badge as I've already packed my spares ready for the move.

The fuse is shared with the clock and stereo so as Andy has said, it can't be the fuse if they are still working. The carpet should have a clear cut down the center of the center console, they are all like that. However if you remove your ashtray you should be able to see the plug behind to the right hand side. You can get your arm around from the pedals end and push it back together again. Hopefully this would work.

This one will be waxed within an inch of its life I think.

I'd seen that black vert. Had I not just got this, I'd have probably got that! Always come along at the wrong time.

Well only a select few of you know about this one so far, but here it is in all its mighty... The As Yet Un-Named Paseo:









This one popped up on Facebook several weeks ago and it instantly caught my eye. I let a few people know about it and tried to gather interest before I ended up buying it myself. And here we are.

It's a 1996 ST, with an optional boot spoiler and optional Song cassette player with a 10 disc CD changer that currently doesn't work. I've not had a proper fiddle with it yet to see what's wrong with it. Might just be me. Other than that there's no rush, the bodywork has little scratches here and there but a damn good clean up and machine buff should sort a few of those. Otherwise it's mint. I'll end up replacing the rear bumper due to a deep scuff and it seems a little mis-shaped. Otherwise this is a truly awesome buy. One owner from new and I need to get in touch with the previous owner to see if they have the service history book. Evidently it has been serviced at every MOT too. This is why it's an awesome buy:



Yep! Not even run in yet! I'm aware of one or two other Paseos with mileage in the 20s but I believe this one is the lowest. Which as far as I'm aware is also the lowest left in the UK. That puts me at having the highest mileage and the lowest mileage in my fleet... sad git I am. Plans include leaving it exactly as is, however I will get it up on a ramp and give it a full undersealing to be absolutely sure that this will stay like this for years to come. I shan't be using it too much either, as I'd like to keep this as the lowest mileage.

I had one last hoorah with the roof down today, a nice long cruise to the coast to visit a family friend. Then this evening I left the roof down for the drive up to the new home. I'll be back up there tomorrow to put s cover over it and tuck it in warm.

I'm going to miss driving this thing. The auto box is so lazy! But I have to think practically, and that roof doesn't even get near the word. I'll have it back out in March no doubt.

But, some news is coming soon of another member of the fleet.

You’ve worked wonders there Sam, looks stunning. I really like that 👍

Cheers me dears. I'm getting impatient to get the kit repaired but there's no point in rushing if the cars just going to sit under a cover for a few months really.

Cheers Bren! I've always wanted a set and you're right, they dosuit this really well.

Sad news to report on Roofus front...end. The bolts removed themselves from the center supports and the lip dropped down on a dual carriageway. By sheer luck I past Fozzie and he warned me of the issue. Should I have hit a dip in the road it would have been a complete gonner.

So that's something to fix during the winter. Anyway today is probably going to be my last roof down day, before I tuck this one into dry storage for the winter. So here's a couple of photos by a bush wall I found the other day.
