I'm new to these forums, but not to Daihatsu cars. I'm a 15 year old boy from Norway. In my garage, there's a small, red Daihatsu Charade G100. A 1991 model, bought in October 2005. The car was bought for Ã‚Â£150, and was brought to the family garage, to stay there a week. That didn't happen. The altornator broke, and there was time for a big project!
Model: Charade G100
Engine: HC-E, 1.3, EFI

I have probably forgotten something, and I need a lot of parts. I'm gonna go for semi-OEM look, semi my own-look. I've got a G102 1.3 litre, but using parts from the GTti/Turbo, and hopefully some custom/special parts, I hope it'll look good!
First day in garage
Alternator decided to stop, which nearly resulted in a fire. It did, however, result in much more work to the car than originally planned.
Disconnecting battery, to replace alternator. Removed air filter to get more room.
The interior stripping started
Painted interior details silver, and large interior panels matte black.
Removed the asphalt plates, to find rust.
It's more than that, but that's by the canal.
Primed parts inside the body.
Test mounted the spoiler, it needs a brushing, either if it's being color-coded, or painted black.
Got visited by some in the other class yesterday, took off the brake calipers up front..
After over-screwing, this happends:
Leading to this (borrowing from neighbour):
Life seen through a pipes eye..
The radiator is out
Probably an old dent, just filled over, not primed or anything. The more I sand down, the more rust I find under the filling
And now, it has to be cleaned again
Hope you like my project!
