Well this was never supposed to take place but somehow it has and well here we are continuing my build from daiforum. I am not going to bring it all over from thereit will be sort of a fresh start here.
WHY THIS WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN
Well the reason this wasn’t going to happen was at the track day i decided I would sell my Mira and just keep my move for street driving and occasional track fun and my swift for its historical value and some track stuff too.
With this in mind I sold all the stock move hubs, brakes, wheels etc etc and I had someone lined up for the shell and all the other panels etc I had to go with it. They saw what it was and seemed happy but pulled out the next day so i though well why the hell not i may as well keep it and do something with the damn thing.
So this is now where I am at.
I have a mira that I will put an engine in but which one I am not sure yet but it will be a daihatsu engine. It will probably be an ed20 or an efel/ed20 combo or whatever else I have.
The Mira has rear Sirion brakes on it currently and I have no front hubs or brakes what so ever.
So what am I going to do about that?
Well I also own a 3 cylinder 1984 swift and once the g10 engine eventually gives up the ghost I wont be able to source another one as they are very hard to find and same with the gearbox’s.
So Today i bought a 1998 suzuki cino/swift with a 13gba engine which is a carby engine.
Whats that got to do with the mira?
Well for the mira I am going to do a 4x114.3 wheels stud conversion. I have already done 4x100 and the rear sirion drums on the mira are 4x100 so using the same principals I will be looking to use the hubs/ brakes and the wheels from the swift for the conversion. As for front struts I have some mira ones I can lengthen the holes to make fit just as @Daiharris has done with his coilovers and I alreadly know tha I would be able to use some other suzuki struts as well. as for drive shafts Im not sure how it will go it may be the same case as what I did with the 4x100 or it maybe easier but atleast I will have the mira cv shafts and the cino shaft to play around with to get them right. oh and I still do have the spare jackshaft i bought a while ago.
So that is the plancs I really dont have any updated pics of the mira so i will dig out an old one and I will put the pics of the swift that I got up here also.
Sadly the trxx bonnet has been sold.
