    The last pic with the filter sitting in it is the orientation in-car.

    The little bung gets unscrewed first, and the plastic thing gets shoved into its place which pushes open the valve built into the bottom of the housing letting the oil drain from the housing side completely.

    Then the bottom half of the filter housing gets undone.

    The common thing is for the bungs to get chewed up (it’s 10mm square not 3/8) when used to loosen the housing instead of the correct cup tool for the housing.

    This car hasn’t been over serviced by any extent given that lack of wear on the sump plug and the filter housing.

        2GRFE says “I’ll sludge up and seize” to that.

        On the bodywork front. The rear quarter metal is all factory. All the seam sealer is identical around the panel, all the spot welds etc are same side-side. It has been painted, or blended into, including painting over the factory applied stone shield clear vinyl! The rear door is ok near the top but down low. Fuck me. Worst respray ever.
        I suppose I can either rub it and paint it again, or just replace the door.

        Or what I’m really going to do; buff it and then apply about 4 coats of CQuartz and move on with life

        Realistically I think we are pretty happy with the car.
        - The seats lack support, so I’ll get a ZR6 set in at some stage.
        - The stereo is shit with contemporary phones etc so definitely need to get a replacement squared away.

          The 2gr is a lovely little motor - don’t know why it doesn’t get more love as the 1 and 2 j’s

            I'd love to pop one in my Celica but if you want a RWD one it's going to cost you almost as much as a 2JZ. And I know which I'd prefer if the price is around the same.

              I get paid to clean cars from time to time, so driving around in a coarsely compounded Camry wasn’t going to pass for long. That and the shame of having a Camry with tired paint…



              The results of yet another decontaminating wash. There’s definitely nothing left on that paint now!


              About to roll into the garage for some attention.

              The roof after compounding. Still needs a final polish at this point but it’s looking good.

              Bonnet after final polishing.

              After all that effort with the buffer I’d better do something to make it last while living outside.

                Mission accomplished. Not the shittest looking Camry on the street. More importantly, a couple of coats of CQuartz to keep it that way for about 5 minutes

                  That's amazing, a Camry you can be proud to drive...

                  I'm going to do some clay rubbering of my mini this week, pending spare time, and see if I can revive the finish a bit... I'm going to go over it with mother's cmx afterwards... Seems like a good short term solution

                    Fuck me, that looks amazing.

                    Well done on actually polishing a turd and not just rolling it in glitter.....

                      There must be something in the air...I spent the weekend clay barring my 96 Camry Wagon, to prep it for some compounding and polishing, too. Lazy panel beater neglected to mask off multiple areas when I had some rust cut out of it around the windscreen and rear side windows, so it has over spray on many areas that needs removing.

                      Great result, Aaron. You have really revived the paint

                      What type of polisher do you use btw?

                      Comment


                        Polisher wise I use nothing special, it’s just a 6mm Dual-Action, but with a half decent electronic speed control and soft-start. It’s Rockwell branded but was bought years ago so wouldn’t know if the model currently for same is the same.

                        Pad and compound choice are probably more important. I started using Hex-Logic (Chemical Guys) pads years ago and have been very happy. Likewise with the Chemical Guys compounds. The first pass over for the bulk of the cutting was the V34 grade on Orange, and the final was with their VSS on a green pad. This is like the shortcut process because the V34 will cut very harshly if kept a little damp but it won’t refine much, and the when used dry it will break down and leave a very acceptable finish (roof). The VSS is a Jack-of-all trades product. It cuts enough to pull out scratches slowly, and also deals with swirls, holograms etc.

                        If I was really getting serious it needs some serious paint depth mapping as I doubt if could sustain proper hard cutting to a “corrected” state of perfection.

                            That paint has come up a treat. Makes me realize how badly neglected the paint on my Vogue is, well overdue for some professional love. Luckily it is white and hides it well.

                              Rain overnight means I get to show off some bead porn, well stale old bead porn because it hasn’t rained for hours now and the beads are still there.

                                My nopics doesn't understand the thrill of beautifully beading water on freshly waxed paint. Just another thing on the list of things she doesn't understand.
