Special thanks to Elite Collision Centre in Leichhardt for their help getting the Mira painted!
Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.

Mira looks very light weight and has more space in the boot and the backsits then in the bonnet... why don't you fit there a more powerful engine and make a monster mid-engine car? 😉

You'd reckon the amount of work will be lesser for a small car.. but from the video it seems just as much work needed for a small car. I guess what does help reduce the amount of time or prep work regardless the size of the car would be how smooth the parts and panels are.

Hi bro ... I just saw vids ... Sorry to say this ... But this car is also popular in malaysia ... We call it perodua kancil ... And there are alot of parts here ... And to be honest the car is one of the cheapest car in malaysia ... So if you are looking for unique modifications ... Just Google perodua kancil modified ... You won't believe how we do it here ... The mira can actually race against a gtr 35 here

Look I've used body filler. Never heard it called bog. That seems to an Aussie thing. What the hell do the initials stand for or is it just a name lost in the mists of time? If it was BOS that would be Better Off Scrapped.
Ha too many cars, yall go watch roadkill and tell me MCM has too many cars. there are NEVER too many cars!

This is very random, but someone needs to replace a smoke alarm battery, judging from the chirps at 17:18, 19:02, 20:10, 21:46...

Does anyone know which song of theirs is playing at around the 26:00 minute mark? I've been wondering for a couple years it feels like (they've used it many times in different videos), and I've never been able to figure it out. I want to buy that song!!!!!

Today I was in my local TESCO & in the technology department the tablets and I-pads were all playin some random US-first, so I spent the next 15 mins getting Kei to the City on as many as possible. I even got them (mostly) in sync.
that is very interesting to see what needs to be done to repaint a car.. so that is why its so expensive the amount of labor. the cost of masking the cost of every little thing adds up big time.
