Pleased to say it has nothing to do with me, it's my understanding that Toyota did replace (under warranty) all the broken bits to once again have a happy customer.

For me this was just a wee exercise today to prove to a colleague, that product photography can be achieved with the absolute minimum of kit and fuss.

This one was done on a window ledge, with a A4 sheet of white paper and white piece of card to act as reflector.

Great demonstration, great detail, made a relatively unattractive subject interesting. Good to see someone use their ingenuity.

I like that photo, of the scuffed and melted piston.

Old machinery, broken down machinery components....all good grist for the photographic mill.

Thanks, interestingly enough I'm guessing there were three more just like this one... somewhere.

Yes...and maybe an electrical problem if a piston rod came out of the side of the block and shorted out the electrics.... I had that happen to one of my cars....many years ago.

No I don't believe there was... top end damage only valves met pistons.
