So I had this Original old Irish Daihatsu Charmant;

It got me these awesome girls....

But that wasnt enough, I needed other kinds of fun in it,

So first things first I welded the diff and put trd blue rear struts in it and started breaking halfshafts.....

So I replaced the halfshafts and bought a 5k engine that I planned to beef up a bit and pop in,
Seemed like a good idea and quite in keeping with an original car,
But my friend made me an offer I couldnt refuse.....

Yep thats right, Banpei's old car.... she got rolled and 'repaired'

Now all the stuff from that car, including alot of stuff added on since, is going in to the Charmant,

I got the suspension and brakes done this week,

Back needs to go lower....

Badly need ncrca's if anyone has any,

Wheel bearings, adjustable panhard rod and we'll see what else tomorrow.

Major plans are full 4ag, hydraulic t series box, t series axle with Cusco 2way diff and 4.7cwp.

Will post up progress as I make it,
Hope everyone likes what Im doing, all feedback and suggestions welcome,
Cheers,
Jack (mouwt) Thumbs up!
