    ## Post Whoring - Part 3 ##

    In some duty stations we have been assigned to it was mandatory (whilst in some locations it was an advisory) for our cars to have protective films for safety reasons. So yeah...the film does help to a certain extent.... In the past the issue with Corning glass (as opposed to corning ceramics, etc..) was the weight. I suppose their tech has come along way

    but it says the the vehicle is empty with a HiAce van shell, so would not that mean that the 90,000 is just for the converted vehicle but not the interior fitment ? So the fitment you want would depend on how deep one's pockets are and how crazy the ideas are...

    So this is a Land Cruiser that was extended and HiAce body put on the back ? Would be interesting to find out why ? Might have been simpler to just buy a Hiace..extend that and upgrade the drive-train to a proper old fashioned part-time 4WD system.

    @Prangi...yes...a E70 Corolla LIFTBACK to be exact. The pic was from a TE71. In Sri Lanka we have definitely have one (possibly two and maybe more hidden away) KE70 liftback

    probably the best choice for now.... A few points to note: - by occasional I hope you mean at least every weekend or so and not some really long period (like 4 or 6 weeks) of inactivity. - you should use the car on an occasional (yet regular) basis not just for oil unclogging but other factors as well. Tires, need to rotate and come up to tempareture, hoses, hydraulic/oil lines transmission components, etc...need to come up to temperature (warm fluids running through, etc..), if they are to last; AC/cabin air needs to be circulated, etc...if te interior is to not get mouldy and absorb moisture and then start deteriorating. - A lot of people start the car for a few minutes (to get the battery charged up) until the temp gauge comes to middle and then shuts it off. Although the temperature gauge shows engine is warm, it does not necessarily mean oil temperature has reached the proper temp ;which actually is a strain on the engine and just doing this over a period of time can actually constitute as severe usage for the car. Also, vital components do not get fluids flowing through and reach proper operating temp them selves. So....use the car on a regular basis....go for a drive with the family...enjoy having a nice car. Being overly careful and conservative might actually cost you more than actually using it.
