    I hope the manifolds are on the engine otherwise water will get into the cylinders and cause damage.

    Pics! And I need to buy a spray gun always seem to have painting projects. What products/how do you clean the surface before painting? I don't mean prep I mean the final stage before paint.

    What did you do to your Gen1/Gen2 Camry today?

    DIY - 2VZ-FE Timing Belt Change

    2VZ block is very similar to the 3VZ, hmmm maybe oil will seep through. Far as I can remember I use thread locker, one of those things that you do and promptly forget.

    DIY - 2VZ-FE Timing Belt Change

    You are correct on the thread locker forgot about that. Notice in the the FSM (first pic) it says pre-coated part for the tensioner pulley bolt. What are you supposed to do according to Toyota, buy a new bolt every timing belt job? There is no oil pressure behind those threads AFAIK.

    V6, was hoping it was good so it can go into the silver car. This Solara had body damage everywhere, every corner was smashed or dented. The underside looked like it rode over things several times. Total beater. Don't think the TRD shifter was ever sold in Canada.

    What did you do to your gen3/gen4 Camry today?

    Great news! I finally found a Solara 5-speed at Pick N Pull. Now the bad news :cautious: the tranny is no good, gears sound bad can hardly turn the input shaft in 5th, gears are rough. Win some lose some. Didn't take me long at all to pull dropped the subframe and 5 minutes later I had the unit...

    Broken strut, subframes and other gen3 shenanigans

    I hate to see you lose money, but for some context I've seen the bills people pay taking their cars to the dealer to be fixed and serviced. I find it bewildering that people continue to pay those prices, I guess they feel it's normal. How much do you want for your car? I know someone that needs...

    The state of organization you have that service bay in is most impressive.

    Automotive LEDs

    The small one I've linked to previously, the one of the left is the best combo of temperature, light output and power draw I've found. https://www.ebay.com/itm/332522600404 But it has a stupid flaw, the output blinks white-amber white-amber instead of amber, off, amber, off, then back to white...
