We purchased our Acty 'Yuki' in a sorry state, according to the previous owner it had been used as an advertising vehicle with a sandwich board on the truckbed and as such was left in a field. Heavily vandalized by youth and driven into by farm vehicles it was then saved by the previous owner who got new windows and had the panels done up by a supposed BMW bodyshop professional. (looooots of filler was used and then it received the worst sprayjob/brush job ever.) When we testdrove it we found it to be 100% technically having only done very few miles, so we took the plunge knowing it would need a lot of TLC. We have another kei car as well going the full oe spec on that, but considering the condition of the Acty we figured it to be justified to get a little creative modifying it (probably considered very mild on these forums ). Pictures we received from the previous owner: Once in our possession, 1st thing we did was give Yuki a full service for a clean bill of health and he's been in service since never missing a beat. Whilst finishing another project we started planning how to tackle this one. in the meantime Yuki's given quite a few bikes a ride: Then the tires were completely dried out so it was time for some new shoes, I gave an old set of mazda mx5 daisy wheels a spruce up, used a flapwheel to get the centre hole to Honda Acty size and had new 155/55/r14 rubber fitted Before Cleaning Repaired curb rash & primered Test fit after using the flapwheel method suggested by a kkitp member spraying colour (I had this rattlecan with dark grey metallic in my possession for at least 5 years :lol: luckily the one can was just enough so I didn't have to go out and hunt for another one) After spraying clear all done Now the real fun begins, finally the container from Japan arrived with Yuki's new bits (Yuki's hybrid Honda brother helped out too, collecting all the parts from the warehouse). The panels that were clumsily repaired before are in my opinion really not worth it to put any more time and effort in so we decided to replace them with second hand panels, most are from the van version, the honda vamos, with a bit more luxury such as electric windows, window visors and nicer door cards with actual fabric, vamos fenders, bonnet, late model vamos front bumper with chrome grille and fog lights, vamos side skirts, and some other bits. All stuffed in our tiny council garage. .
