Today installed the external oversized oil cooler,

The instrument cluster and wiring,

And the new horn Wink

Oh and the brand new genuine mirrors - which I'll post a photo of them soon.





Just need to wire up the rear lights, tidy up the under chassis wiring, and bodge some seating together.

Light at the end of the tunnel.

Hey man,
Just got back at this forum. But your project is everyone's dream Wink
I'm really impressed by what you have made! I had ideas to make my pickup faster, but it is very hard to get MOT if you want to do something like that here in the Netherlands. Can you get MOT on your beast where you live?

I would like to see how it performs on the road. Post us a video when you have one Wink

Just spunked another 6 hours into the Yamahatsu.

Wired up the rear lights, sorted the fog light wiring, rewired the engine harness to make it fit, wired up the alternator/stators and done some proper battery connections.

Next big job is the seats really.
Welding/bodge work needs painting.
Head lights need re-chroming.
Cab interior needs tiding.
Diff cover needs removing and re-sealing.
Fill engine with oil.

Getting there now really.

Who hates grey dry minging bumpers?

Someone told me to use this Cherry Blossom Ready Wax Black shoe shine.

It's only £1 from Morrisions. 3 or 4 coats to make a#my very whitened dry bumper totally black.

Does a really good job, lets see how long it lasts.

Is that the original bumper, HJ? I thought all 1.3's had the later, deeper type.

No its an old 993 bumper from a van I broke. As it has no radiator etc I thought I'd use the old school front end.

No that one looks like a bit of a POS.

The wiring job, the battery "strap" the welding on the exhaust, the interior.

And when paint looks crap in a photo, it will look very crap in real life.

Those wheels are pcd 4x100 4x108 multi fit, thus incorrect fitment.

And with no functioning speedo, its not actually road legal obviously.

But good effort, but fuck knows how it got an mot if it was tested after the engine conversion! Look at all the insecure wiring and handbrake cables fouling the exhaust.

Like th comment, paint looks good from 20m....anything looks good from 20m! Yours looks miles better so far. Looking forward to the next instalment of the build.

Well drove it home today....

It has its virtues - e.g. f***ing bonkers power wise. Drifts like a nutter.

Turns LOTS of heads, I mean it hardly goes un-noticed making the noises it does.


Then it has its problems - cooling - I need ducting and some big fans. Its getting wayyyyyy to hot.

Then there is another slight minor issue!!!

Top speed - on the rev limiter in 5th gear - 75mpg.

Crusing at 50, about 6000 rpm - with a straight though exhaust = mega noise.

Needs something doing with the gear ratios big time. Diff ratio is all wrong Sad

But its a Hijet after all, can change the engine but not the usual issues apparently!

75mpg! Wouldnt complain at that! Wink

Excellent job getting it running though, joking apart. Would love to have time and space, and confidence to do things like that.
