Hi all, I thought being a 1990 that this will go here in other projects. Picked up this tidy little beast over the weekend, Plan is for it to be a daily/some 4x4 duties, It requires some rear wheel bearings, I will get rid of the auto hubs before I blow them and put in manual hubs, probably modify the drivers seat so my lanky ass will fit in it better and maybe a new window switch but otherwise everything works as it should, Fuel injected 1600 runs bloody well!
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
