thats good,everyone hates rust!i think there is only one daihatsu dealership left in ireland,and they didnt seem to even know what a charmant was when i asked about parts have you had any luck sourcing panels?mechanical stuff isnt really a problem for them as most parts are interchangeable with KE70 corolla or ae86 corolla parts
Yesterday I had two rendez-vous with other Charmant owners, both up in the north of The Netherlands. First the white 1300 LD 4speed, 1985 with 346.000 kms on it! First owner (82 years old man), needed a new corner assy so I brought one and fitted it for him. Car is not for sale, but whenever it will be: the man's going to call me.
Then a visit to an elderly couple (90 years old!) who stopped driving their '87 1300 Altair in 2012. This car is technically 100%, but has a lot of dents and some ugly spots. If you are interested, send me a PB (price is very attractive!). I can send you detailled pictures if you want.
After sleeping from 1 december 2014 till 2 july 2015 I finally had time to wash it and take it for some trips. Went to Japan Classic Sunday in Gemert (The Netherlands) last sunday. There were 3 Charmants present!
Did about 300 kms last week, now it's back in the barn for a couple of weeks. It needs a new APK (Dutch MOT) by the end of july.
