First post here, I recently got my hands on an early model 2nd gen. Europe and Japan got it slightly earlier than America so it's still under a 1981 registration. It's a UK spec 4 door executive trim 1.6L EL1 with a 3AT. The previous owner was a family friend who barely drove it around, so the mileage sits only at 35,000! Unfortunately the last owner had a few bumps in her old age so some of the body panels aren't in great shape, but there's very little rust on the irreplaceable panels.
The two big issues are currently a cracked passenger side mirror and a leaking carburettor gasket. I've found a new mirror, but no luck on the gasket. The plan is a Weber 32/36 DGV swap (I believe the EL1 uses a manual choke but please correct me if I'm wrong). Other part's I've gotten include a set of door skins and a new driver side fender. I hope to detail the restoration process as I go through.
And now, some photos:
