Insurance / Re: F430 Roof instructions
« on: February 19, 2021, 10:35:53 PM »
Hi, not been on for a while, been busy on the car!
Shortly I am going to need to tackle the dreaded roof install and am hoping that someone out there has a copy of the paper instructions, have been looking at Pauls build diary and he keeps referring to it, so hoping to track down a copy to help me!
Also, would be really helpful to see a completed one, but not sure if there is anyone in my neck of the woods (South Coast between Portsmouth and Southampton), that has a 430 spider and maybe has even fitted the roof themselves?
Thanking you all in advance!
I'm in Brighton but my car is off the road ATM MOT and clutch keeps getting canceled due to Covid and then catch up

Is it this one?

It has been on Ebay for a while since before Xmas I think. Should be advertised in Kit cars rather than Toyota

Oh yeah if you are careful drilling out the original blank key you can use the same hole to screw in your original key using the original Toyota screw ( I had to grind the end of the key down a bit to make it line up)

I have programmed up three transponders and three wireless txers one for everyday use one for spare and the other for emergencies. Not sure that there is any benefit in me importing these though, they are available on eBay from China I can save a bit on freight but I not everything I order is here in a couple of days as they make it to order.

The first new key has been made works fine albeit that the buttons are in the wrong place, but I can live with that

Mine has arrived, disappointingly the 433mhz rolling code txer is not compatible with the Toyota, but on the plus side, I have followed the above instructions and managed to fit the original Toyota txer in the key. Just need to set up a transponder now I have found the right instructions to program a transponder, and get the blanks cut. Thanks, Redhot, I probably would not have given up getting the key working but your tips certainly made it easier

They're unlikely to be MR2 standard?

I was just wondering about this, its not as easy as replacing the MR2 Clutch, not so much room. I also want to get the camb belt changed, I dont think its due but I just want to be 100% sure that the car is tip top

That's the Ferrari blade, just replace it with yours or a blank TOY41 key and get it cut. The keys and programmer have been sent to my friend's factory in Shenzhen, I have also ordered a leather steering wheel cover to go to the same place. I hope that everything will be shipped by the end of next week. It will take around 3 days via DHL  so a couple of weeks and I will know if they're any good

I have the standard DNA exhaust on mine, It sounds quite good. Mind you the precats have been removed so that may well help the noise

This is the key I am being sent. it may take a while to come because I have arranged for them to be sent to a factory that I have a large consignment of proximity fobs being made. Until they are ready to send the consignment I won't get the keys. I've arranged for the transponders and the programmer to go to the same place, along with some other bits and bobs.

Wow, thanks for that, from what I can make out the tx'r is 434 for real key, whereas Toyota is 433. I have asked for 433 I hope thats what I will get. I have ordered transponders separately and I although I do have a transponder copier I found there is a obd transponder programmer that works with MR2's

Thats not good, I have two cables going to the catches on mine. If no one comes along with a way of getting in for you, I will take a look at mine to see if I can work out a way. The other place to ask is on the FB DNA forum its seems busier there, though I have no idea why I cant be doing with all the Karens on FB
