  1. If it's anything like my Nippa it's only a 15l tank - rude not to keep it full! 1/4 to brimmed today £16😃
  2. Good idea! @Steve G has started a FB group but I'm not on that modern bookface thing.
  3. Don't know how to change the title but it should read "(A lot less) poorly Perodua Nippa" After knowing @Steve G had used MK3 Mira front shock absorbers on his Nippa I bought the same and with the help of a mate got them on today. Big thanks to @Steve G who provided invaluable help via messages and the re-assurance that Mira ones fitted. The Nippa drives a million times better and the hideous constant clonking from the NSF has gone. The noise was getting me down and I'd seriously considered scrapping it but faith restored and I am really enjoying driving it again.
  4. Nice ply lining, whole family in shot too. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Daihatsu-hijet-pickup/143383926907?hash=item216259187b:g:mmUAAOSwvbZdfrVL
  5. Yes, I've experienced "limited times" too. Spoke to them on Wednesday but need to wait til this Tuesday to confirm the part is on the shelf - Tues is when the stores fella is next in. However they say they can get any part not in stock from Malaysia via airfreight if urgent (didn't even ask on the shipping price) or via sea in a "couple of months". I'm waiting on a quote for parts not in stock. It's reassuring though that I can get Nippa parts - i asked about an exterior door handle and a crankshaft pulley and they were both in stock at good prices. Even if I have to wait for shipping from the other side of the world it was not an option I knew about last week so thanks again Steve G.

Still waiting.
  7. Thanks, I've just signed up to that daihatsu forum to get the manuals plus will ring the Perodua place in the morning re parts. Ps manual download successful
  8. Oh, interesting - I'll try that number in the morning as I'm after a front shock for my Nippa and I've struggled for other bits in the past. I saw your son's Nippa on eBay but it was the wrong end of the world for me. Hope your son enjoys it!
  9. Didn't realise they were worth that much. There is also a modern Citroen on the other drive that hasn't moved for a few years. Think it's just an old lady/man paid to have a bit of a garden tidy. Hope she/he doesn't get loads of idiots at her door now it's visible. However it was visible a couple of years ago before the brambles took over.
  10. This was completely covered in brambles last week.
  11. 50 yds from me. MOT expired 2011. Don't understand the plate mind.
  12. Just makes me smile. It's round the corner from my mum's. A Rover 75 next to it with a missing rear bumper.
