Rusty gutters....

Hi fellow holdeners.Rust was starting to form in the gutters of my p'van, so I took a dril/wire brush to it. It came up very well, however there's a cuppla places where the rust has eaten away the metal slightly. Once treated with a rust converter, is there something like a caulking compound ( bit like whats already there )I can use to clean up the area? If it was a normal panel it'd be fairly easy to fix, but because it's in the channel of the gutter I'm a bit stumped. Do you follow? Any ideas?.... Thanks in advance ...Tim

HG cold starting, coil probs

Hi All;
Replacing ignition coil on HG, the new coil pack says use "ballast resistor" ==what does that mean? Did the HG come out with them originally? I am changing the coil because of hard cold starting- I have all new plugs, leads. points. condensors, carby kit -thought the coil could be dodgy, any ideas?

Thanks

Trueheart

Another Successful Weber Conversion

Well if there is a better all 'round carbie for the 202 I haven't found it. This really brought my VK Wagon alive! This thing whips of the mark quickly now and really gets going all through the rev range. I personally think it is (near) VK EFI performance, for heaps less work. As a bonus 59 k's more out of my first tank of fuel. Brilliant! More to be done, now the EST needs a little upgrading. Will keep you posted how it goes
Cheers

253-308... recondition the celica box or get something stronger?

Im putting a 308 and paceys in to my panny next week so the extra power is worrying me a little about the gearbox.
Ive had a second hand celica box for 12 months and its starting to sound a little worn...

called up the gearbox reco joint and he said putting it in a 308 is pointless and recommended a borgT5...

can anybody shed some light, i know the supra turbo boxes etc are stronger than the celica but cant really afford one...

is it worth getting a t5 if i can for cheap and reco'ing that over the celica or sticking with the celica.

thanks guys
