Hi this is going to be the build thread of my red turd a 1998 daihastu cuore 850cc. I am no stranger to these cars i have owned various kei's when i used to live in guernsey! when i moved back to the uk i had no idea i would ever find another with such strict mot laws however one popped up local to me i just had to have it . with one lady owner and 33000 miles it had seen plenty of sitting around and lots of mould and moss had built up and it was pink. Got a fresh oil filter and oil in it on day 2 of ownership as these engines are very fussy and piston rings like to stick, on closer inspection it had surface rust on various components so a bit of underbody sealer on areas was needed. The car also made a funny noise which was the crank pully fell to pieces so i just bodged it back together haha
For the start of mods lows was needed so found a set of used GAB coilovers for a reasonable price and the ride is quite good , wheel alignment was a must tho as it had some crazy toe out. Next was a quick polish up and moss removal. I intend on getting some areas painted like the wheels and a dewiper i will keep the thread updated let me know your opionions on it.

Thank you , well today has been a massive drive today to go roughly 220 miles to go and pick up a new set of wheels and tyres off a fellow member Joseph. Other bits I have had to do to the car are replace the front arb bushes as one was so perished it fell out if anyone needs the link then let me know. Here are some pics I got of my l500 and the l200.
