NOTE: MORE PICS ON PAGE 4
So guys am back with another DIY, this time its my Father's beloved Daihatsu Charmant 1984 model. The car has been with us for over 20 years now and we have gone to each and every nook of this country on this car and it has never let us down.
The car was originally a 1300 cc petrol one with 4K under the hood, but was converted to diesel in 1989 by swapping the 4K with the legendary Toyota 2C engine and since then it has been running on this engine. It was well taken care of till 2004 but after that it was on the mercy of our drivers and since then the car has deteriorated. The current condition is TOO BAD. The body is full of rust, the electrical wiring is full of jugaarrs and the interior is a mess. I couldn't see this car in this pathetic condition so decided to take this up as a project as we wont be selling it ever because of the memories that are attached with this particular vehicle.
Here is the list of things that I plan to do on this vehicle:
- Complete Bodywork (Denting plus painting).
- Complete Suspension Overhaul (Front and Back).
- Engine Swap (Planning to put in a petrol one).
- Complete Interior rebuild.
- Complete wiring change.
Now what I would want from you guys is that to suggest me a good power/econo engine for this car plus your inputs throughout the project will be much apprecited..
@Xulfiqar @capsat @SER_GTR guys ur input will be much appreciated..
