Title: 1992 Mitsubishi Strada (quad cab turbo diesel pickup)
Post by: PajEvo on April 24, 2017, 02:13:15 PM
Bought this truck in Japan in December of 2016, for import to Canada. It is not destined for big tires, lifts, or rock crawling. It will be  a mountain bike hauler, camping base of operations, tow rig, and Daily Driver. This "build" will thus be more about keeping it running, with a few upgrades here and there.

Attached pics are how it looked in Japan, before I bought it. As you can see, it needed work, inside and out.




The good:
-104k kilometers (~60k miles)
-Full Service history
-Almost no body damage (one ding in rear roll pan, rare in a JDM pickup, that usually has all kinds of dents)
-factory-blinged with fogs, light bar, brush bar, rollbar, rear tube bumper
-factory flares, dual batteries, no EGR
-glow system that hadn't been tampered with
-three pedals (all the K34T diesel pickups were manual trans)
-nice alloys, and new all terrain tires



The bad:
-a color I'm not fond of
-peeling clear coat on hood and roof
-rough interior, with crumbling seats, missing gauge pod, etc etc.



This thread will follow this old truck's journey into the new millenium, with a few mods along the way...

As haggard as the clearcoat looked, I could live with it for a while. I also found out after I picked it up, that the timing belt had been done in the last couple of years, and only had 20k kms on it. Bonus. But the interior? Wow. Never seen a vehicle that had been so well looked after mechanically, yet so far gone inside.

Seats were done for, as I showed in the pics above. An old GPS unit hung from loose screws where the dual pod was supposed to reside. The steering wheel, even though it was swapped to an old Lancer Evo MOMO wheel, had medical tape covering a hole in the leather. Carpets and mats were dirty, and it had been smoked in.

Here's the dash when I drove it home...

Yanked the seats, and shampooed the carpets, mats, headliner... pretty much every surface that could be touched was cleaned. Also yanked the stereo, GPS, and a few aux cupholders (I don't think I really needed six places to put coffee)

Replaced the torn up seats with some Pajero Evolution Recaro's that I scored in the deal of the century, from a buddy who pulled them for me in a junkyard in the Northwest Territories of Canada, and brought down for me... (matching seats in both rigs is a good thing, right?)



Retrofitted a gen1 Montero triple gauge to fill the void on the dash.



Also replaced the aging head unit with an android double DIN (after I cut the cross piece on the dash garnish). Also cracked the dash trim getting it out, but it was a putrid greyish brown anyways, so I swapped it to a black piece (off ebay). Had to modify it for RHD (heater controls are oriented differently) but you can't really tell...



Finally, I cut the back upper part of the lower pocket to squeeze my CB in. No antenna yet, but at least it has a place.

Update: I now have 20k kms on this rig since I got it, and have done not much mechanically beyond oil changes. I did replace the coolant, stat, rad hoses, and accessory belts. I pulled the cover to do the timing belt, but it was pristine. Further investigation showed it had been done around 80k kms, a few years ago. So I'm gonna wait a little bit longer before doing it again.

I did have a nasty sound coming into the cab for a week or so in March. My stethoscopic jack handle eventually traced it to a failing tensioner pulley on the AC track. It was still cold so I pulled the belt, ordered up a bearing, and begged use of a large press to do the R&R. Ahhhh .... cool and quiet again.

I'm loving this thread! I also have a 92 Strada same colour and configuration. I also live in Canada as well so pretty cool. Anyways keep up the good work as I'm just getting it ready for paint as the peeling clear and colour is not my fav so I'll change it

Okay, time to address the peeling clear coat on the hood. Been driving me crazy all winter, so warmer weather is the time to do it...

Hood when shipped:



Looked even worse in person.

Started by sanding it down, hoping to just respray the clear. No dice. The base was badly damaged. So the sanding went deeper, until we had bare metal and some primer...

Title: Re: 1992 Mitsubishi Strada (quad cab turbo diesel pickup)
Post by: PajEvo on August 24, 2017, 09:12:38 PM
And deeper still...



This was followed by primer, and then the base began again. Color matched rattle cans actually matched very well, and I used three of them, just on the hood. Followed up with two cans of clear. Its much better, but there is a fair amount of orange peel, so when the paint cures a bit, I plan to polish it and hopefully bring a little shine to the forefront? We'll see.



Saved some masking time by moving the rigs out of the garage, and putting the hood on the freshly wetted down garage floor (on cardboard).

Looks much better! How the clear on the roof? Mine is the same as the hood will have to be sanded completely down
Title: Re: 1992 Mitsubishi Strada (quad cab turbo diesel pickup)
Post by: PajEvo on August 25, 2017, 11:11:45 PM
Roof is crazed all over. But it's also completely covered by my RTT and roof basket so I'm not seeing nor thinking about it yet.

So... was yours the one up for sale that needed a head/gasket? When did you get it?

It is that truck I picked it up from Devin a few months back, I've been trying to duplicate the heating issue he had with no success. He gave me a great deal and I love the look of them aside from the colour lol but that's easily fixed

Yeah, R25 is not my bag either. But I don't want to spend money to change it and make it look worse. Keep thinking of monstaliner etc but not sure about that yet either. For now I'll keep it the way Mitsu made it.

In another thread I alluded to a new Rooftop Tent. She's a biggie and presents some install problems on such a small rig. The new RTT is 7 feet long. It doesn't fold out. Its already full length. It can go on the roofbars but is not aesthetically pleasing as it hangs out over both the hood and the box. Plus, I want it to act as coverage for the box too... so...

First thing I needed was some kind of rear support, a ladder or canoe rack style. After shopping around, I realized these were going to cost too much. So I decided that the very retro rollbar in the bed would be better served as an aux rack. But first it had to slide back. And it needed something to sit on.

Post by: PajEvo on August 27, 2017, 09:07:23 AM
So... My goal was to have the seven foot tent cover the back of the five foot box, and obviously sit over the cab too. Some quick measuring indicated that raising the rollbar an inch and a half would put it in line with a roof mounted crossbar.

I didn't really want to drill holes in the box either so I started looking at ways to use the existing infrastructure to my advantage...



If I could move the rollbar back and raise it up, I might be in business. And of course lumber would provide the perfect spacing... So I decided to build two extenders which would use the existing mounting holes for the rollbar, and could then hold the rollbar up that little bit needed, and back to where it could support the tent at the back of the box. Here's what I came up with...

Possibly I could use the spaces for storage as well? And def need some paint on there...

Tent mounted, wood painted, and bolted down, with metal corners added... pretty happy with the results. Can't even see the tent from the driver's seat. No extra noise on the highway (probably due in part to the fairing on the small rack in front of the tent, which allows one to roll the cover forward and into the basket...

Tent is very secure, and covers the bed as I hoped.

Awning attaches to the side of the sail track (they were thoughtful enough to use a four way aluminum tube with sailtrack on all four sides) using some brackets that I made and after 300kms everything stayed in place. I used the opposite track to attach a curtain to act as a windwall.

Have some things on the way for the pickup. Tires are ordered, HID fogs to replace (sadly) the giant OEM Cibies that are rusted through, and a leather steering wheel wrap (which I have to stitch on myself) to fix the hole in the otherwise sweet MOMO wheel that this truck came with.

Tires: BFG AT KO2 in 31x1050 R15's. There may be a tiny bit of clearancing to do if I want to keep the stock mudflaps (I do)

Fogs: I found what appears to be an exact version (probably off the same line) of the Explorer Procomp HID fog light, complete with swappable yellow lenses. They are coming from HK so I'll have to wait a bit, but they cost a third of my dollars compared to the Procomps.

Wheel Wrap: Wheelskins... black with red stitching - we'll see if I'm up to the task of making it look OE. Somehow I have a feeling I may be farming this out to my wife? We'll see.

How come you don't use LEDs instead of HIDs. They consume far less power . Is it because of the light output?

Also I'm in love with your seats. I don't have access to EVO seats do you heard  of any other nice seats that retro fit nicely into the trucks. My best friend owns a local scrap here in Thunder Bay I may go look at a set of latest gen eclipse seat they would be nice.

No, I want the heat. Mostly want floods for snow and fog in winter. LED's produce virtually no heat by nature of their efficiency, which means they ice up.   

Also I'm in love with your seats. I don't have access to EVO seats do you heard  of any other nice seats that retro fit nicely into the trucks.

There's a mighty max FB group where folks have made lots of different seats work. Might be worth a look if you're on FB?

This is such a great read.

Thanks Frank! I'm just happy to have everything in one place. But its funny how we can become so focussed on one rig, and then the other sits, ignored? The pickup was mostly ignored leading up to MOD, but now its back on my radar. :)

So TIRES! They came in, they're installed, and they're rad!

When I went into the tire shop a week or so ago to order, I hit a counter guy who was an enthusiast. Skylines, Altezzas, JDM's of all sorts. So he promised no one would give me a hard time on fitting 31s to the little pickup. LOL. My appointment came the other day, and they were all crowded around the bay (I was watching through the window to keep them accountable LOL) looking at the truck. The guy said they'd never seen a rooftop tent before. Heh. The manager was from Sri Lanka and proceeded to gush about the Strada and showed me pics of his buddy's truck, etc, before waiving some tire fees and sending me on my way. To their credit, the shop made no complaints about the extensive rubbing of the tires when I hopped in to drive it away. I knew there'd be some, but it was nice that they weren't whining about it.

I started with some baseline measuring. No surprise - the RHS was lower than the LHS. I cranked the torsion bar anchor bolts 6 full turns on the lower side and raised the other side just a touch as well. This wouldn't help the rubbing through a suspension cycle, but it did even out the stance a little. Can I say "stance", or is that now reserved for lowered BMW's with 20" wheels and 1/2 inch sidewalls? ;)

The rubbing was occurring in two places - back corner where the large OE mudflaps attached to the fenders, and the front lower valence sheetmetal, below the bumper. Easy answer was to cut the sheetmetal and pull the mudflaps. But I still want to keep this rig as "stock-modded" as possible, so I looked at my options.

The mudflaps have a metal bracket sandwiched in between the rubber inner and outer. By carefully cutting the tire side rubber and now exposed metal bracket, I was able to make the mudflaps more low profile in that area, and retain the rubber on the fender side, so the flap was still whole.

Next was tackling the lower valence... Rather than cutting it outright, I decided to fold it over...

First I marked the line.



Title: Re: 1992 Mitsubishi Strada (quad cab turbo diesel pickup)
Post by: PajEvo on September 03, 2017, 09:14:21 AM
Then I cut a v-notch top and bottom and carefully bent it over, following up with some color matched paint I happened to have sitting around... Now I'm "fender rolling"? Not really...



Took it for a spin and am quite happy with the results. The revs are lower on the highway. And around town the shift points are slightly different so less lugging and I can hold first just a little longer before grabbing second

Post by: PajEvo on September 03, 2017, 09:21:23 AM
Final result? Here are a few glamour shots. Given their wider track, they definitely protrude more than the stockers did, so gravel is a little noisier. The daily drive begins again on Tuesday, so long term reports on manners, fuel economy, etc. will be forthcoming.

Honestly, if yours didn't come with one, I wouldn't waste time/effort. Its completely useless in a LHD country. Not sure where you'd get one, perhaps off a JDM Pajero via ebay? Lemme compare the pajero one to the strada one and see if they're close. You'll likely not find a strada one...

Update: New fogs came today. They didn't include the yellow lense I requested, so I'm opening an inquiry. For now amber will have to suffice. It actually lights up yellow when on anyway.



I needed these since the OEM Cibies were rusted through the can on both lights, a result of 25 years of water ingress. These HID's are close to the same profile so I thought they'd play the proper homage. Esp if I can get the yellow lenses. Ahem.



These were a third of what I'd have paid locally for what looks identical in the Procomp HID foglight. That's a lot less. I opted for 35watts and flood pattern. Wasn't a huge fan of the red surround, but it'd be easy to paint. And now that I have it, its a dead ringer for the truck's paint.



I've yet to test them, but they seem pretty good so far.
Title: Re: 1992 Mitsubishi Strada (quad cab turbo diesel pickup)
Post by: PajEvo on September 04, 2017, 08:40:55 PM
Okay that's too funny. Right after I took the pic I had to pull apart the rhs light and reorient it. Also clocked the metal ring so they were even.

Glad I'm not the only one bothered by such things. Lol

As for the savanna lights? Oh man... Those are sooooo sexy!

Took the truck on my daily drive this morn (I'm a teacher, and its September, so...). From 95 to 100 kmh I was getting a decent vibe. Not in the wheel but more of an all over, like either a weight slipped, or I shucked one altogether. So this evening I was back at the tire shop. They rebalanced all four wheels, and tomorrow I try again. The guy said they were all a little off, but one in particular. So maybe the hub alignment cup wasn't on straight? Hmmm. In any event, fingers crossed. On the plus side, the speedo is pretty much dead on. Wish I had checked it before, since obviously it was off with the stock tires? Revs have dropped on the highway about 150 to 200 rpm which reduces the noise a bit.
Title: Re: 1992 Mitsubishi Strada (quad cab turbo diesel pickup)
Post by: PajEvo on September 06, 2017, 08:32:53 PM
The vibe is still there, but unlike other unbalanced wheels I've experienced. It comes and goes. Sometime it is dead on 100kmh and sometimes that speed is smooth. Not a huge vibration like shake your mirror kind, just a sometimes noticeable annoyance. I think my next step will be to swap wheels around and see if it changes the vibe's characteristics? And while I'm at it I'll put on the finishing touches - those OE hub covers I got from Uncle Russ at the ranch! ;)

As for my HID lights, the ebay seller told me I did in fact get the yellow ones (they are yellow when on, but amber when off). He's going to send me transparent ones too, to make me happy. I'll probably keep those one most of the time. Not sure the amber is ma thang...

Oh, and my wheelskin steering wheel wrap came yesterday. Haven't had time to stitch it on yet, maybe on the weekend?

Awesome truck, thanks for posting details on this thing.

Thanks buddy! Nothing compared to what you guys accomplish, in terms of mods, but you know how I like my trucks. ;)

So if you refer back to the first page, when I got this truck it had a nice MOMO early evo wheel swapped in, but there was one problem. It was wrapped in medical tape at the two o'clock position. And it looked pretty gross. I peeled it off almost immediately, and sure enough, there was a hole in the leather underneath. So it still looked pretty gross. Just, not as I guess?

After looking at this for nine months, I finally got a chance this weekend, to cover it up. There are many options out there, but I went with wheelskins for their reputation for quality. I ordered directly via www.wheelskins.com . Shipped quickly, after I measured the wheel about fifty times. Funny enough, the sizing was dead on for the Mitsubishi iMiev, my Strada's very very distant cousin.

First thing I had to do after stretching the string, was try to build up the hole. I feathered the edges, and built up the middle with two layers of gorilla tape when it felt to be the same level as the rest of the wheel.



Then it was on to stitching. There are plenty of videos on how to do it, tips, tricks, etc. I won't impart any pearls of wisdom, since I feel unqualified. But it went on.



Didn't come out perfect, but so much better than it was before that it's perfect to me. This concludes the interior renovation.  Also finally wired the 12v battery gauge, ran power for the CB, and did a separate relay for the HID foglights from a week or so back.

If I can't sell it for reasonable (and it was expensive, so reasonable may not jive with public opinion) money, then I have other plans. But we'll see...

Had this up for sale for a while, but no finishers, only tire kickers. The replacement I have in mind isn't showing up in JDM land either, so for now its stay the course.

The BFG's have been very good, and although our weather has turned back into fall again, they were really good in the 2 weeks of actual snow we did have.

Now have 135k kms on her, so I wouldn't say she's broken in yet. I am in no rush to see this one go, but eventually I will be in another Pajero for my commute. This truck is neat, but I really prefer an SUV 90% of the time.
Title: Now FOR SALE: 1992 Mitsubishi Strada (quad cab TD pickup)
Post by: PajEvo on February 03, 2018, 10:24:53 AM
I now have a new Pajero coming from Japan (details elsewhere) so this is now officially For Sale. I'll leave this here, and perhaps the next owner can add on to it? One can only hope.

For reference, not included from this build is the HID floods (put the factory originals back in place) and the stuff on the roof. That is going to the next rig. Also I swapped in a single DIN with bluetooth. It works, but is certainly not a hi-fi stunner. CB and Android headunit are also going to the new rig.

If you are interested in this rig, let me know. I'd love to see it go to someone who appreciates it...

I believe they are 9 inch? I'll have to check. Is this Judah by chance? I'm afraid they are going to be too deep to run on my next rig. :( I'd sell them for I dunno... $65USD? That's quite a bit less than I paid. Only ran them for a couple of weeks before switching back to the OEM lights after I decided to sell the pickup.... just a thought?

This rig is now sold. An enthusiast family is driving it from here back to Michigan. They have multiple Mighty Maxes so this one is a holy grail for them. Its so nice to see it go to folks who appreciate it. I will miss it...
