This is thinking outside the box :) I might borrow this idea.

Thanks!

It can be done simpler... as Riccy said on the first page, you could use piano hinges on the edges of the boards...



I wanted mine substantial to take the weight of the dogs and any other heavy things I put on the folding-floor, so the big plates on top replicate the hinges underneath and brace the boards together as they are cantilevered off the box in the boot area, albeit some of the weight is borne onto the top of the folded rear seat backs, as in the sketch above...

This was my solution Dave
Harness and modified rear belts


Works a treat

I like that Jack, need something similar, but need to keep the rear seatbelts too... not sure my daughters would like being clipped in ;) :lol:

Some work on the Gold Jimny today too (as I've also been working on the blue one -



Some recent purchases! :) I'd ordered some manual free wheel hubs as I got a flashing 4x4 light in the recent snow we've had in Waleshire, so I didn't want to get stranded as I had in the blue one early in it's life! I had put a "Price Beat" into JimnyBits but they chose to ignore it as we've fallen out, so I bought them off "Raptor 4x4" on eBay as they were cheaper! I'd also got some super-bright LED headlight bulbs and a new switch for the dashboard, more on that further down... ;)



On to the hubs then, simple swap...



Soon on!

So onto the headlight bulbs...



Hmmm, bit of a size difference?! There's a little cooling fan on the back of the new ones...



Thought I'd better try them before assembling everything... Yup! Them's bright alright! :lol:



I cut around the fan housing in the rubber gaitor that fits around the back of the headlight..



Yup! them's is bright... have to go out and test them soon!

I did buy two sets of these, but not too sure about fitting them to the blue offroad Jimny? Not sure how long the little fans will last after being dunked in rivers, etc?...

Ah, that switch... as the two-wheel-drive-low switch had to come out...



I swapped it for a "winch power" one, so that that rocker switch has to be "on" before the one on the right will operate as an on / out switch, to stop the winch occidentally being knocked on...

Did you check the lights if the lines are correct? In my experience any other than standard bulbs make a shitty pattern in these reflectors

Change back to normal bulbs for the new MOT!
