Be gentle, I'm new here!

Post by Spike on Sun Jul 29, 2012 8:29 am

Just wanted to say Hi.
I am a jolly chuffed owner of a Daihatsu Midget 2 nano van, gives constant grins as it's used daily.

Sorry about this, I have been trying to upload images but am currently having no luck!
Possibly because my internet access is via my PS3 as both my laptop and desktops are as good as dead!
The van is essentially the same legally as any other van, Just much smaller. Very Happy

Ok, just set up a Flkr acc. Spike_2012

Thanks for the help Highlyjetted, tried and tried but I couldn't seem to make anything work.
Glad you all seem to approve! Very Happy
Next task is fit up the line lock followed soon by nitrous! Should be good for a massive 2 horse increase I recon, be nice to get to 36! Smile

Later plans involve replacing some panels in carbon. I just love to extract the Michael!

It's just the funniest thing to drive, garanteed to make peeps react. I get cars flashing me, thumbs up out the windows, kids waving, pretty much every journey! I absolutely adore this lil critter.
I am lucky enough to have some other vehicle's too so it's not strictly my only form of transport, however Ido choose to use it virtually all the time.
Actually got over 75mph out of it yesterday by accident! Wasn't watching my speed :O

Hi peeps just wanted to say a quick hi.
Still progressing slowly but surely with the midget, it's satin black with the beginnings of the rat look now! Seriously loving this little beast.
The new engine is ready to get slotted in but other projects are hampering progress.
I shall keep you posted on any interesting happenings .

Ah ha! So you wish to know more about the strange and bizarre happenings of monsieur Spike?
Currently still finalising bits for the new Midget heart (135bhp bike lump) Plus a little soupson of nitrous.
Job consuming valuable chunks of time at the moment is a mildly modified Fiat 500 ( I like little things that make me smile )
At the same time I am doing some repair work followed by a full repaint on my friends 65 Ford Econoline van.
Next should be the Midget transplant
Also doing work on a Holden Wallaby and the beginning of a Rolls Rod Very Happy
Taking a breath, still using a PS3 to write this so I am unable to load images however I will get them up on Flickr

I trust everyone had a wonderful Krimble and here's wishing you all an excellent new year.
Just thought I would pop this in here, I hope this works! It's my latest accessory for the Midget 2
I think everyone needs one!!
