Hello Macmoto and thanks for making a Garage entry.
Looks good! Yes you can actually get a 72" 2 x 4 (or longer) into a Mirage.. with the hatch shut. Just don't break the windshield in the process.
View my fuel log 214 Mirage ES 1.2 manual: 41.8 mpg (US) ... 17.8 km/L ... 5.6 L/100 km ... 50.2 mpg (Imp)
Yes, and with the rear seat removed the front passenger seat can be fully reclined allowing an 8-ft 2x4 to be stuffed into the footwell.
