These Celicas have the same Caliper carrier/1pot Caliper [same distance between bolt holes] as my Carina 2.

I was out cycling and couldn't get phone out quick enough for a head on shot of Mr and Mrs Savv, so one of her rear will have to do. :-)

I ordered a S/S tip for the Exhaust....

48mm specific [my pipe is 48mm o/d]. Arrived today - it is 48mm :/

Rather than moan on I swiftly zipped two axial slits, about 2" long then cut two lateral slits 1/3 of the circumference.

A good 'squeeze' with the water pump pliers & Bingo... Hammered into the pipe end (with a wood block to protect the tip!)

Looks OK... & tools back in just missing the deluge!!

Mr Station kindly 'threw' a wheelbrace spider into the boot before parting with ToMM©....

It seems that the winder/crank [for the scissor jack] went walkabout too!

No no no.... I haven't had a flat! All my 'ups & downs' are done with trusty tj+woodblock PLUS axlestand ;)

Just >> as the scissor sits up under the drivers rear arch >> got me thinking I couldn't wizz the car up using it :(

Ordered a replacement on Amazon for £8 delivered... Couldn't be arrissed with the breakers!!
