These little kei cars are addictive, So I bought a new car for work and everyday usage untill we can finally work out wots up with my lil red zato.

The plan is to do total cheep budget mods that make it look diffrent but keeprunning gear standard as possible :smile:

So heres some pics when i picked it up:





And as soon as i got it back i removed the broken blowing back boxes and mad a niffty little side exit(not loud)


I then preped it to go matt blk but decided to keep the silver bit so to see what it looks like :P


I then procceded to spray it :thumb:
Oh and i bet you can never guess wot my fav food is? lol :P





Tomorow if the weathers good ill dismantle the suspension and lower it , by removing a coil or two :blink:

Then i just need to sort out some wheels, want something a bit wider that slightly poke out from the arches and then get sum  low profile rubber stretched over them.

Will keep yew posted as this gets done :thumb:

Oh and if your wondering its a uk spec, 850cc, fwd, naturally aspirated, 3cylinder.

busy today, with the excellent weather, and got a fair bit done to the Move.

Was an excellent way to solve my bordum for the weekend  :lol:

Lowered it so it looks much better now  :happy:

I finished the exhaust,

Fitted a stereo,

And i changed my mind bout the wheels, my old zato wheels actually suit it and it looks quite rude but still remains practical for everyday use :thumb:

Heres some pics of it:

Exhaust



Before lowering



Rear lowered



Lowered all round




Has settled a bit lower after going for a drive so the suspension could settle down :thumb:

Overall i fink thats a good lil turn around and looks nothing like when i got it 8)

Not bad seeing as i only picked the car up yesterday  :P

Just a few lil fings left to do, like waiting for new number plates, and my tinting film for the lights, and maby a couple of lil odds n sods  :thumb:

It looks better!  :thumb:

Are the coil springs the same as the zato (diameter wise?) i was planning on getting some standard springs and removing a coil. My springs are too low for the rough roads around here. I'm sure i could get some non gen move springs. I've tried to et some perodua nippa springs, but no one does them other than the dealers...

Cheers dude  :happy:

Um im not 100% sure coz i dont have the standard suspension off the old 1 as i sold it.

The top and bottom of the front springs was 3.5inches i think.

The problem i had with removing a few coils is that both ends are smaller diameter, so had to modify(widen) the top cup and welded it to the spring.

Also welded the bottom of the spring in place to stop it dislocating should the car ever unload over the brow of a hill or something like that.

so the suspension is all peachy, and only cost me a couple of welding rods and a cutting disk :thumb:

The rears i didnt measure and am unsure weather they are the say because the rear suspension was independant trailing arms and the zato is live axle with 5 link suspension.

The only thing i can say to do is keep your eyes peeled for a cheap set of Move springs, and give them a try, if they dont fit im sure youll be able to sell them on again  :smile:

Ryt only new things done is my new smaller numberplates are fitted.

I modified the doors to get some slightly bigger new speakers to fit behind the standard door card trims :thumb:

I also picked up a new set of wheels which are in need of a bit of attention to the rims but they will just fit the move if i stretch some rubber on them, and ive already rolled the lip on the rear arche so they shoukld just clear :P

Will defo get some pics when there all tidyed up and fitted, should look quite rude with a bit of poke :happy:
