Thanks very much guys,
Suppose I'm starting it at the wrong time of the year coming in to winter but its great enjoyment,
I was always one to take in the stray cats and taim them in to domestics,
So I'm growing much love for the motor, going to bring it back to original state with some extras.

I took it down to my local vallet place on Friday,
The guys know me well from going in and out with the focus,
The owner came over when he saw me in the drivers seat,
Asked if I'd sold the focus and was this a black top :)
Told me about three of them breaking for parts within 20 minutes of my house,
And give me a mobile number of some guy who has purchased one just for its engine,
So he's breaking the rest of the car apparently he does rally driving in his spare time and is transplanting the black top with a turbo addition,
I need a few parts so ill give him a call,

I'm starting to think this is something I should have started ages ago,
Because parts are available locally and very cheap, which is surprising considering this car was never sold from Toyota in Europe,
Each one has been privately imported.

I've been on the Ireland Toyota forum and I've gotten in contact with a guy who owns a motorbike shop in Ashford Co.Wicklow,
He sells genuine Toyota Racing Development (TRD) oil filters and pipercross panel filters specifically for the Levin,
He's also a big enthusiast and has lots of spare parts.

Got talking to another guy in co.Kerry who is breaking three of them :lol:
I've passed him on a list of parts required so he's getting back to me with a price,
If it comes I good, I'll be heading over with the back seat down in the focus to collect.

Here's an example of cost,

I need a new windscreen washer bottle, drivers side air vent and centre twin air vent,
For these three parts including washer pump I've gotten two quotes one @ 20.00euro and one @ 25.00euro

Front bumpers from the likes of Bomex and Cwest are coming in at around 150 euro
Full seat interiors are 100.00 euro

The stuff is amazingly affordable,
However I need to be care full because all the small prices add up to big money in disguise :lol:
I don't need VickiC coming down hard on me.

The main priority now is getting the muffler changed over to what he called the MOT one,
When I get that done I can start the car in the yard and keep it ticking over,
I can start it as it is but even when ticking over at 1,100 rpm its like the focus at 3,000
Neighbours would say anything but I don't like it myself, so I wouldn't inflict it on them.

Luckily MOT muffler came as part of sale so I just need to get the old one off.

Not sure mate but I'll find out soon after fitting and I'll let you know :lol:
120 euro for the bumper George how's a man to say no...

I've been pricing some suede Alcantara in black to cover the roof lining 34.99GBP gets a section measuring 47"x 32" gives me enough for trimming all round so that's on the cards too,
I'll price a roof lining from another Levin,
If I can get it for under 40euro I'll buy one and spray glue the black fabric to it,
Then I won't have to worry about taking care removing the existing one,
Shame Haynes don't do manuals for map imports,
Would surly take the guess work out of removing panels.

Hopefully it stays dry for the day,
Sadly I won't be able to attend this one, I'm working nights next week 11-7am so next Saturday is a write off for me,
And I've blown my budget for the month purchasing the Levin last Thursday,
My next spare few quid is purchasing the bumper on 7th

Look forward to it mate,
I presume you've saw a lot of Levine in Ireland, can you tell me how popular is the super live sound rear speaker?
I'm looking for the factory grill only,
And trying o gauge how hard its gonna be to find.

Also please post a link to the meet/photoshoot that happened last may, I'm sure some of the lads on here would like to view aswell as myself, perhaps we can recruit another ford/Toyota owner ;)

Ah together we can make it happen George,
I've gone out t it at 10am -1pm stripped out the whole rear from boot to the glove box all down to the metal,
Just the front carpet and drivers seat remains,
I've got it all up the attic and bags of fixings all categorized to ease the refitting,
I'm on nights this week so I'll get to the carpet and front another day,

Stripping it down in search of rusted areas requiring paint,
Figured since I'm getting the outside done I might as well get the areas inside treated aswell,
And prep it myself as much as possible to keep cost down,

Only rust inside is the under rear seat support brackets and the two boot wells behind the rear wheel arches,
I've hooverd the whole thing after stripping and used two packs of 60 interior wipes cleaning it out,
She's shining inside lol
Damn phone is giving me hip now I've tons of images but it won't let me send says "sending error check multimedia settings"
You see I've no Bluetooth on this 7" android, only way I could get pictures up was to email them to myself from my phone
Then download to the tablet from my email,
Followed by uploading them to photo bucket
And linking them to the forum,
I'll try get it sorted, my phone is now 7 years old
