  1. Hi I got some through Yokohama Spares in Japan, including a cap.
  2. I am still looking for a set of hubcaps... anyone help with this??
  3. After almost 5 years my Max is now fully restored. The mechanical work was finished a while back but this year I got stuck in to the paintwork/bodywork. After some poor attempts at doing it myself a mate helped me do it right. Several months later all dints and surface rust etc removed - the body was repainted in the original Daihatsu yellow. Also, we re-painted/finished the bumpers and grill, and even the air cleaner (back to original blue under the bonnet!). The finish looks great and it is now really like a new car. I have put in new grey carpets and a new set of seatbelts in maroon re
  4. Great! Do you have any spares? I need a new carby - the one I have doesn't want to idle properly, or maybe that is just an adjustment? No-one been able to get it right yet though. Also like to get a set of hubcaps for it.
  5. Wow that is amazing number in NZ I don;t think there are anything like that here in Australia. I am coming to NZ in September and would love to look up any Dai-hards of the 360cc variety! I wil be in Sth Island and as far north as Christchurch only.

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
  7. I have been getting a 1972 Daihatsu 360X back on the road over the last 4 years. Starting with a full brake rebuild, then fuel tank repair and seal, radiator flush and restore, new battery, plugs, and coil. It looked hopeful little Max would run. A startup produced hopeful signs, but the previous owner had played with the oil injection system - disabling ti and getting it to run on pre-mix. Why!?? After a trip to a regular mechanic (ignoring the engine issues) it took several more months to get it roadworthy and Club registered. But I did! Only to discover the engine a non-
