Why do they start touching when nothing hits them???


When you next have the front axle apart, take them off and throw them away!

They're meant to be stone guards but they collect mud and stones between them and the discs causing scored discs and 'orrible noises!

Took care of the MOT advisories,
O/S/F wheel bearing - did the king pins and and seals while it was apart.
A small patch of welding on the O/S/R cill.

Fitted Proflex ARB bushes.

The bearing was only just on it's way and has had no effect on the car, the Proflex bushes have tightened up the anti roll bar and I now need to harden the dampers.

The ARB is now causing the car to wallow a little, I will adjust and stiffen the front dampers, am confident that will cure it but it may harshen the ride.
More Proflex if it does, this time adjustable drop links... another spend.....

I got a bit creative yesterday before the game so I've made this. It's a flag holder for tow-bar.

So I can do this:

Not quite today, but picked the Jimny up on Friday after the dreaded MOT..............:( :S

No advisories and straight through with a slight tweak to the rear brake compensator :woohoo: .Not bad for a 16yr old Jimny. The blokes at the garage even commented on what great condition if was in.

Guess I'll be keeping the jimny for a while then B) :lol: :lol:

2" lift, 215/75 r15 Dynapro MTs, steering damper, snorkel and slightly mad owner!

Replied by Dom on topic What did you do to your jimny today
Today I drove around 200 miles with no rear prop, anyone got a good second hand one they don't need?

I ripped its arse off!



Tail lights aren't working so I've taken the bumper off to find the usual exhaust melting the loom had happened quite severely, so now I've got to find a new loom because it's just too knackered to repair.

I also took it as an opportunity to put some rust inhibiting primer on any little rust spots on the body whilst it’s off, but it’s was actually in surprisingly good condition once it was cleaned of dirt and mud.

Hopefully that's all that's wrong with it, haven't even been able to drive it yet!

Replaced the oil pan, gone porous and leaking a little :-(





Messy job but had to be done. Easy on J999MNY as theres 4.5" spring and 2" body lifts. Only thing that came off was the oil pan itself to do the swap :-)

Then onto some bushings on the gearstick that have been annoying me for a while. A recent post by Michael-c about them prompted me to copy him and get some for a mini today. They go in with the intermediate prop unbolted from the t-box easily, as he says, and make a huge difference to the gear selection.




J999 MNY, M16 VVT, R7me gbox & Rocklobster,
31x10.5r15 Cooper STT, 2x ARB Lockd' 3.9 diffs & twin compressor,
6.5" total lift, Zookbob HD steering shock, Ignis recaro's
Custom bar & arches, rocksliders & guards,
Snorkel, K&N, 13500lb Winchmax, Buzzweld, etc, etc

Update, new loom did the trick, tucked it way with kevlar heat protection around it so hopefully it won't be a problem again! Now to get the Hankook Dynapro ATms fitted!

Had a battle with the steering wheel. Airbag light had come on and horn stopped working, so replaced the squib behind the wheel with 2nd hand one.

Wheel put up a solid fight, bit of a rough puller knocked up and wound a load of tension in it, then a bfh and a block of wood on the back of the wheel eventually did the trick ;)



Airbag light cleared and horn working again!

Removed my wheel the other day, its the same procedure as windshield wipers. They stick pretty hard if you try pulling straight out. I wiggled the wheel and it came off in about 15 seconds

Spent the useful parts of yesterday trying to get air out of the brakes. Not entirely successfully. They're working reasonably but I think another bleed could have benefit.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny
