Im in the market for a daily driver - I missed out on a 2000 Move and I’m following an auction on a 1.3l manual 95 Charade. It has approx 280,000km which will make it the highest km car I’ve owned by about 12,000km but the plus side is they’re common in wreckers so the plan is buy, load up on spares and I have a set of 4x100s with new (chinese) rubber on them…
They’re factory wheels from my 87 BA5 Honda Prelude - a project car I got last year. Its full of rust and after a year of toiling on it, I’ve decided two projects (more on that later) is just beyond my finances. I am in the panel and paint trade (this is my 2nd year). The prelude is going to the scrap yard once I have all the parts Stripped. Its painful to send an old car worth saving to death but it’ll live on through the parts I re-use.
I’m going to refurb the turbo fin 80s looking wheels off it and put them on the daihatsu. Maybe get some decent tyres too, re003? Big-ish exhaust, will be fun to drive on the way home.
I’m a JDM fan through n through - I grew up in the back of a EF Civic sedan, a second gen Honda City, and an Accord Vigor (and my grandparents had a mk4 Cortina but not jdm), I’m currently a Subaru man after crashing my Sw20 MR2, owning a 95 Gf8 WRX.
Dream car is either an r32 gtr or r34 gtr, or 22b impreza
Anyway where do you guys get new parts from? Usually. I go to like. Amayama or partsouq or jp-carparts but no where has daihatsu catalog diagrams! Cheers
