No doubt about that one
He's done a bit of work to it going by his other pics. Any idea where he is (roughly) ?
I'll get it added to the register, cheers :cool1:

Thanks, just trying to find the exact RAL colour - will find it somewhere

Out of interest, how many cars are on the register now?

Thanks

For some reason Toyota wheel colour codes are always difficult/impossible to find. There will be a Toyota code for it, but I've never come across it yet.
The register is here https://www.mr2oc.co.uk/forum/198/161904.html
We currently only have details of 72 cars .... :sad:

The location info, where given, is not necessarily current though as most of it in the first instance has come from ads, personal observation, or the car being acquired by someone on here and telling us about it. In the first two categories subsequent changes of ownership can easily occur without it coming to light.

I wonder how many of the 250 cars are still extant. Some on the Register have already been broken for parts or scrapped. It might be possible to get a reasonably accurate number if Toyota GB ever kept a record of the VIN numbers. If so, a FoIA to the DVLA might produce the answer.
If you're not living life on the edge, you're taking up too much room!

Sorry, we are in Tadworth, Surrey.
And it is a P reg.

May I ask for some help.

This is my first Anniversary model and the steering wheel is looking really tired.

Can anyone recommend a really good retrimmer.

My local man is great with straightforward stuff but has never even seen one of these.

You see, I don't want to reinvent the wheel! And yes I am an embarrassment to my kids...

I've added your car to the register :th:
If your looking to get the leather on the wheel redone you could try asking Rhon, https://www.mr2oc.co.uk/forum/265/149069.html
Not sure if she is still doing wheels annd gear knobs, but it's worth asking :th:
She does high quality work, I fitted one of her replace gear stick gaiters 15 years ago and it still looks like new. :cool1:

Stick a post up in the intro forum with some pics of your anni :)

BTW
It's a dad's duty to be an embarrassment to his kids, it's in the rules :rofl:
