LittleJimny - the custom build

LittleJimny - the custom build
Once LittleJimny was on its way we sorted out our "specification" with the guys at Roadworthy Suzuki. They were more than happy to meet our requirements for some customisations as James had put together a list to achieve his dream Jimny. First of all a couple of pictures to show how "Gerald the Jimny" looked when he arrived at Roadworthy. Each coun...
