Fantastic, looks a a really thorough and well done job :tu:

You'd be hard pushed to find anyone in the UK prepared to spend that much time and effort on one of these cars I fear :|

Great to see it being restored! Especially it being a 5dr model, most people only put money and effort into 2/3dr versions of any given model.

Some other interesting cars in that workshop too?

A serial car-buying friend has recently bought this bug-eye 323 auto, very scarce now in the UK.

OMG :shock:

Now I know what the others feel if they see the restoration of my Daihatsu Charade G10 from 1981.

GREAT!!!

In my case it is also the same, most people restore the 3 door version, not the 5 door version as I restore it.

Did you really got new screws? I give a lot of screws and other parts to galvanize....


Here you can see the complete story/restauration

Nice work boys, good to see another 323. Hey just a note(you probably know anyhow), have a look under that damn sound deadning under where the wiper motor and arms sit. All three I've had and this one, rust underneath it right where the firewall and the drain panel are welded. Lovely little water leak!

Sweet, I must just be unlucky, I don't have a lot there, just enough to have remove the bloody dash and repair it! My rocket, its the bug eye but is an SS with the 5 guage dash including tacho, but running an Auto. It also has front and rear wipers and both are intermittent. I haven't seen an early one like it, only the square light version.

I've seen a couple, just not with an auto thats all and the wipers were interesting too. My 1985 deluxe 3 wagon doesn't do that!

@restoreMaz


I quote your reports and copy it into our Austrian japanese oldtimer forum, here you can see it.

yeah thats fine.......but that site isnt in english? can they understand what i have writen?

I will put up more pictures this weekend when i get the engine bay painted.


GREAT.

This is really not a problem to understand it, most people have well known english experiences.

How many people around you ask you why did you do this restore to a "real" historic car? Thats what I heard so many times.

This is really a great job you did.

As I was in nearly the same ranking of finishing my car, one guy told me "The sword of the first scratch is hanging over your head" and he has right.

Think about the first scratch. :)

This is so great that you do this real good job, it remembers me to my own car, it is more then one year ago since I have did things like you did it currently!

That is looking fantastic so far.
I'd drive my 626 to Australia to have a restoration like that on it.

You really did a great job, this is looking amazing what you did to your car!

We should create a group of fan's with complete restored, unbeloved car's!

I'm very very happy to see and I can't await to hear from you the first engine run or the first "finished" picture.

Did you think that your car could need some protections against rust within the cavities? Don't know how much it comes in Australia, but here our cars need this. So maybe this is a good time to do this with same waxes in those cavities.

Thank you very much for sharing this with us!


Rainer


PS: In my opinion you mount the steering box and line on the "wrong" side ;) *just kidding*

WOW :shock: :tu:

Mate, by the pics you have put up, you must be impressed with yourself.
It's a really good looking blue, and the panels you've shown really set the colour off.
One things for sure, you're not gonna be disheartened to pull up anywhere and pop your bonnet.

Fantastic job
Very nice :tu:

mr daihatsu, why do you say its unloved?

323s are rather popular...have a look in new zealand, these cars are very popular, and many have been rebuilt ,restored and fitted with rotaries, and here in australia there is plenty with rotaries, some even tubbed drag cars....


Oh my dear :oops: SORRY

In one of your first postings in this thread you wrote that most people like the 3 door version of your car, in my case it is the same with the Charade, the 3 door version got this round window in the back (but never sold in AU and UK).

Thats the reason why I thought that your car is also "unloved" then my car.

Sorry for that.


Cheers


Rainer
