    Hi all, Beau here from Manchester :-)

    Just bought a Daihatsu Hijet EFI 1.0, to convert in to my first small motor home! just got to get it to actually start up first tho before we can start working on her, fingers crossed all goes well, and she becomes the little motorhome i have in my mind.

            Welcome to the forum Beau.
            If it's been standing for a while the petrol can go stale.
            Take the air filter off and give it a squirt of easy start to see if it splutters to life. I prefer the Carplan version of easy start if you can get hold of it as it dosen't seem to make the engine knock the same.
            Good luck and tell us how you get on

                    Ideas and designs welcome

                    if anyone has any ideas or designs the would work in a Daihatsu Hijet, please feel free to email them to me, basically i want it as a day/night van, for two people, sofas that turn in to beds would be great, with storage, space for a camper khaze (loo) which i have already, and maybe a set of drawers,for food, plates, water bottle etc, work surface aream that can be used for washing, but also as a work surface, i plan to do my cooking outside, unless i really need to cook inside, but i have a normal single hob camping cooker, i dont know if i am planning too much to squeeze into a small space but well have to see, mostly, comfy sleeping area for two, and storage.
                    The van has windows all the way round, and a sliding side door on each side. i have removed the seats from the back, so its just a two seater with the rest open at the moment, it doesnt have a pop top as i want to put a roof rack on for my kayak.

                      Various professional converters used this type of van whether Diahatsu or Bedford/Suzuki and so there are many photos out there on the internet to give you ideas
