emo Mark's Daihatsu Mira L512 TR-XX Avanzato R4 Build Thread

Chassis treatment has been postponed until Saturday, due to me not being able to drop off the car because of work stuff (travelling to the Midlands to shout at suppliers, mainly).

On another note, I had a blown headlight bulb, so I purchased some cheapo extra bright bulbs from eBay. They seem to work pretty well!

Double post... Whoops! :oops:

Been speaking to the company that supplied the bulbs. They're willing to offer me a replacement, but nothing more for effectively messing up my headlight. :angry:

You can see the comparison between the headlights now. They used to look identical.

Looks like I spoke too soon.



One of the bulbs is okay, the other exploded inside of the headlight, filling it with glass, gas and other residue. Not happy at all. :angry:

Does anyone have any tips on removing glass from within the headlight, and cleaning it up on the inside?

Small update:

I can now enjoy drinks and burgers in my car. ;) Finally got around to fitting my burger tray.



Also, I've temporarily reverted back to my spare set of UK Spec/pre-facelift Mira headlights, until I figure out what to do with my one that's filled with bits of exploded bulb.

Hey all,

Not much progress at the moment. Currently saving up some cash so that when I go to Japan next year, I can visit a few Kei parts specialists and get some fun bits to make the Mira a bit more ballistic.

However, I did get these:



Only going to be used for shows and things, but they look fantastic!

Looks class Mark. As for the headlight, I think you'll need to split the lens from the housing.

I'm probably just going to buy a replacement glass headlight at some point. They're usually only around £5. ;)
