From Cjay to Karyas

Karyas is a 93 model Daihatsu Charade. By the way just a trivia, Daihatsu is now fully owned by Toyota

After our car accident last May 2018 with my wife Raq kay Cjay (my Liteace van) akala ko hindi na ako ulit magda-drive.

Thank God there’s no serious injuries on both of us.

Then comes December, when I got hold of my new wheels, (actually its an old car hehe) and named him Karyas because of the sticker left behind by its previous owner.

Karyas is a 93 model Daihatsu Charade. By the way just a trivia, Daihatsu is now fully owned by Toyota 😀 Karyas is just a bit wonky ng mabili ko, the usual of course sa mga lumang auto, pero running naman, but still need a couple of tuning and makeover sa body at mechanical parts, overall I’m satisfied naman, and hopefully magsama kami ng matagal at matiwasay hehe.

KM30 Coil Spring

What a relief! I finally have the elusive and expensive coil spring for my Toyota KM30!

It’s been too much of a haggling activity as I scoured lots of auto supply along the streets of Masangkay for these springs. And from there, I was stunned to know its price! I was hoping it would be like an affordable wuhan china cymbal at guitar center but lo and behold, I could literally bought a nice set of mags or have a decent sound setup haha!

I gave up, and admitted my mistake of having my springs cut, now I just have to get used to the bumpy and shaky ride, the consequence for having my van lowered.

Until a friend of mine texted me and told me that he found a pair of these (hard to find) coil springs  from one of his acquaintance who sells it for an irresistible price!  I’m so thankful not only because of the price but also its state, it’s an old stock and unused.  (as you can see in the image, it’s sleek and shiny) 😀

Have it installed yesterday and boy how I missed this comfy ride! 😆
