    Directors wanted!

    @GravelRash It would certainly make sense for all to get together to discuss things. I'm stuck indoors for the foreseeable due to having Chemotherapy. Perhaps next month may be doable who knows.

    You haven't scared me away. Well, Facebook maybe As the lockdown has eased, would you fancy a socially responsible gathering. I believe in England it's 6 people in a park. It would be like a mini-meet from CruiseBoard all over again; we could even find an empty McD carpark!

    Spare keys?

    £580 they gave me over the phone, they said it could differ depending on which dealership I actually decide to use (I'm near 3)

    Spare keys?

    Have you actually got a quote from Toyota?

    Directors wanted!

    @GravelRash it does require a bit of time. Not necessarily loads, but when it needs input, you have to do it. At the moment it's fairly quiet as not much is happening. But normally there's stuff around events to coordinate and certainly the big shows take a bit more input. It's loads easier nowadays as everything is done online with ticket purchasing for the most part. It's more the events where you have to post out tickets that are time intensive. Thankfully that is pretty much a thing of the past! What I do: Sort out PM's I get from members, most are advice queries, I expect that's fairly specific to me. Deal with traders. Deal with issues with members' behaviour. This can be a massive pain if people go on and you are struggling to find a resolution. It's not so bad on the forum, but seems to be more of an issue on the Facebook page. Deal with complaints. Kill me now, I hate this and again seems to be more of a thing with the Facebook page than the forum. I'll still do that though as erm love it so much. 😫 We really need someone to take on the merchandise side of things. It is fairly well automated these days too. I think also when it comes to the accounts, taking care of the Paypal account is another thing. I think as a director I've played to my strengths and avoided some of the things I don't enjoy or I'm not good at. Keith and Rob had dealt with the money side of things. Rob also did the events wholly, though I've taken over the big ones and we do have some excellent event organisers in place that do the shows and trackdays. I've always been more visible and out there, dealing with the social aspects, social media and relations and all that. Well, I am a social worker! 🤣 But really it's a matter of applying your skills and for us to get the best out of you. There is also the option of expanding the committee to do more of the daily running of the club. This hasn't really worked though, so I'm minded to just keep that going with the directors. Keith is still busy sorting out payments and the like that need doing and running Paypal. Rob is still doing merchandise and banking stuff which is not ideal as whilst he's always been fab at popping up when he needs to, I'm sure you can understand he's got a lot going on at the moment and sold his car years ago. Alec is a director in name only and has no involvement at all anymore. So really we need new blood, passion and enthusiasm to move the club forward. Also someone that attends events and is visible and approachable to club members, whilst keeping the members best intrests is key. And don't worry I'm a director of two clubs and have done such things since 2004, so have plenty of experience to pass on.

    Pulled together a quick update based on video taken when I got the car back from being straightened and my prep for the bodyshop: https://youtu.be/6sH089Vl6tY

    Spare keys?

    First born child or nothing I think. https://www.theautolocksmith.co.uk/vehiclestypes/toyota-keys/ We'd come under the %60 off £1200..... so about £500.

    Spare keys?

    I was also wondering if I could get a second one. Mine is a bit different since I have changed my 86 to JDM brz. And it came with only one like this on the photo.

    Spare keys?

    So I only got one set of keys with my GT86 and for obvious reasons would like a back up set....however~ I am yet to find anything outside of the stealership that isn't around £500+ for a spare set. Local car replacement key shop chain (i forgot the name) wont touch it and will only make the ignition/door key, not the electric sides which given its a push to start, is 100% useless. I get its not exactly a house key that can be cut but surely somewhere does replacement keys that doesn't require me to sacrifice my first born's soul? Any ideas?

    Car lowered, now front is knocking

    Going to get under the car today. Done abit more research. I'm beginning to think I've messed the strut as I used an impact gun to undo the top nut. Figures... I used the ft86speed factory video as a guide and they also used an impact gun. Last time I'll be using them. But will take a look and update. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    Directors wanted!

    I'm intrigued by this opportunity but I'm wondering about the time implications. As a fairly busy person what sort of time commitment is required? I presume it varies and there are peaks when it needs more but overall is it possible to estimate how much time a month / week it would require? I also assume that guidance would be provided as, speaking for myself, I've not done anything like this before so I'm not sure exactly what I would be volunteering to do.

    GT86 Dreams

    Ah don’t say that. I could believe it too as they were desperate to sell cars before but now less so I guess, if dealerships re open. Hope you get the deal you want that would be annoying if they jack up prices. I think they’re still gonna struggle to be honest to sell as car market is a right state, I just enquired about two Face lifts on Toyota chat about finance etc, and both dealerships are all over me, but I want them to send the car to another Toyota dealership. I’m hoping for desposit £1,600 and Finance £180-£200 an month which is currently possible and APR is non existent at this moment being very low. Not sure if this due to GR 86 coming or 2017 model tax years I’m looking at or something else.

    Covid lockdown battery issues

    It's the alarm/immobiliser fitted for the UK. You're not wrong about the drain, though. Mine took a goodly amount of charge after not being used last week. Sent from my LG-G7 using Tapatalk

    Car lowered, now front is knocking

    All sorted. No more clunking. Check all your bolts especially on the hub and make sure you have fitted the correct nut onto the 16mm top bolt. My drivers side bolts had become loose causing a bit of play on the hub/strutt. Also even though the nuts look the same, the one for the 16mm bolt has a slightly wider bottom. So the knock wasnt coming from the droplinks at all but just to be on the safe side I reinstalled them using the preload method. Jack up the hub under the brake disc to take off the slack and then reinstall the endlinks. Whole thing took about 1 hr so fingers crossed I wont need the extra expense of the adjustable endlinks.

    Covid lockdown battery issues

    My COVID battery troubles brought me here as a newbie! I've had three Gt86's over the years and noticed a pattern, my previous model had the same issue. If the battery drains below a certain point, it would seem it would never recover, and it's very odd in it's behaviour too; it seems very random when it would decide to charge itself. Sometimes a short drive would do it, but then I tried longer drives and it then wouldn't start at all. The nail in the coffin for me was to use a wall socket charger overnight, which totally killed it, whereas before there was some initial chance it mighty kick back into life again and at least give me one or two starts, now it's struggling more than ever to start even with my battery booster jumped in. I phoned the Toyota garage yesterday and the guy on the other end said it appears to be a fairly common problem on this car and to call again on Monday when the service guys were around. I'm actually shocked it was behaving itself for as long as it was, intermediate usage, short journeys just to supermarkets, it took over a month for it to start behaving like this. it's so much fun risking a petrol fuel up not knowing weather you can start the thing afterward, I totally recommend the high, it's better than ladbrokes. As a thought, I wonder if there's some dodgy charge/discharge protection circuit in place, with slightly wonky tolerances, the power requirements for the car seem to be that of a small country.

    Touch and Go bluetooth issues

    I have had this happen in our various Toyota cars. I.e. I had the most recent Android phone at the time in our family and it wouldn't play music via the HU in my Auris but worked fine everywhere else. Wife's phone which was older android and consequently older BT version worked fine. Read up the HU only supported up to a certain BT version so I guess the phone for some reason wasn't dropping down to match HU for compatibility to play music? What was really frustrating is that it did connect for contacts/phone so I could make and receive calls hence my belief something was going wrong in the negotiations between what the HU could accept and the phone downgrading to match that. Another case I found different phone and the sat/nav HU in my 15 plate gt86, it connected fine but whilst the song was playing (progress bar and track info updating) no sound each time it moved to the next track. I had to pause and then resume the track each time. Lol

    I've found a video on the ft86 forums and it sounds like similar to this. The owner changed to adjustable links and the noise stopped so I'm hoping this is the same for my case. will update once changed.

    New member - planning mods and trying TSS

    Install pictures: Lights (in progress) VLAND fronts - easy to do, plug and play for the GT86, no splicing wires etc. Only issues were plastic rivets are annoying, bit awkward taking off side markers and headlight washers when removing bumper but easy enough, forgot to buy headlight bulbs! Also battery died after for some reason - needed a jump start and was then ok. Weird, dunno why that happened! After a lot of reading decided for bulbs to order this VLAND D2H type Xenon HID kit: https://www.amazon.co.uk/VLAND-Conversion-Projector-Headlights-Compatible/dp/B0824KCCB1/ref=pd_sbs_263_6/257-5133188-2434939?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B0824KCCB1&pd_rd_r=702fc2ef-2475-4355-86ec-fbe8085fe008&pd_rd_w=4ZVsy&pd_rd_wg=H4PXC&pf_rd_p=2773aa8e-42c5-4dbe-bda8-5cdf226aa078&pf_rd_r=GZT2N5BV3Z0PTS9NRT69&psc=1&refRID=GZT2N5BV3Z0PTS9NRT69 ...mainly for ease of installation. It all plugged in easily, no rewiring. Bulbs and kit could be upgraded for brightness if needed. Need some 3M sticky pads to mount the 'ballast' module that is part of the kit. Overall impression - easy to install, looks nice, not as high build quality as the OEM headlights to be fair but I'll keep them this way for now. VLAND rear fogs/reverse/DRL: This was much easier than I thought it was going to be. There are some videos of the Valenti rear bumper lights going in and it requires some rewiring. These just plugged in to existing plugs and worked straight away. Needed to jack the rear and undo a few plastic rivets on the bumper to get access to the light. Very straightforward - although there are no specific install videos for the VLAND kit, I could do a quick guide if needed. It was easy to figure out. Overall - looks much better than the stock light, the red of the DRL is more pinkish than the red of the tail lights. Have to see how it looks with the new ones I'm still waiting for. With fog light (red triangle), reverse lights (white) and DRL (red boomerangs) on together.
