The Deomonhatsu

#1

Hi so this will be my K3 - VE2 to a L700 conversion, the car has been aptly named by my mates.

The car in question

Engine comes from the Granny Apple

The progress so far is that me and my mate have stripped the sirion and are ready to drop the engine soon, hopefully all goes well, its our first project of this scale.

Also we couldn’t find some bolts/screws to take out the dash any advice would be great.

Next thing we will do is take out all the electronics before we swap and take out the fuel pump. Any advice is welcome since this will also be a auto to manual conversion.

I did this a while ago and it is a long tedious job removing and labelling all the wiring.

Wow that is one clean looking l701! Good luck with the conversion, I plan to do this also in the future, so looking forward to how this one comes out :slight_smile:

Ah adding some work with auto to manual but not too bad
But if you’re struggling with dash bolts then maybe it will be tricky for ya :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
Did you get the ones up under the windscreen?

Make sure you drill your clutch cable hole before you put the dash back in the L7 :grin:
That’s assuming you’re putting everything from the sirion into the mira

Yeah i ended up finding all the bolts and got them out, we changed the the rocker cover gasket and pulled out the engine wiring started labeling some stuff. got real lazy and the weather has not been good for working in the front yard on weekends.

with the wiring i was thinking what do i need just to get the engine going and have the sirion cluster working, do i need to use all the sirion wiring. And with most things have realized this is much harder than expected but still having fun making slow progress.

Also is there a specific spot that would be good for the clutch cable?

Yes it’s a total wire swap unless you buy a converter harness then you can keep the Mira dash and run an aftermarket tacho but keep Mira cluster
Yes you need to be quite accurate cutting the clutch cable hole there isn’t much room to change it
Best to make a pattern off another manual Mira or get one alongside at least
At worst case I can send you a photo

Yeah if you could send a photo would be great, and ill try to find one where i can get a markup gonna start to make some serious progress soon, Also should will i be using the sirion brake lines mean i need dot 4 fliud?
