My 1972 Daihatsu Max 360X has now been some 4 years in restoration. Starting with full brake rebuild then on to fuel tank restoration (sealing the old rust!). I got it running though very poorly, so decided to leave the engine until last. I took it to a local mechanic to get it roadworthy - so plenty of small jobs were needed for that. Biggest obstacle seemed to be the windscreen. They wanted it replaced but eventually accepted it was OK with a re-polish. The engine needed a total rebuild and took some 18 months of tedious work. Sourcing parts is such a headache from Japan! Finally little Max is registered (Club) and running on the road. He just may be the only one is captivity still? Next job is stripping the surface rust and doing a repaint. I am having a go at that myself. Here is a pix of Max as he is today...
