Lil Red - SJ restoration - The Stripdown!

Processed-IMGP603334

In our conversations with https://www.winchfield.net/  they requested that we perform the initial strip down prior to transferring the vehicle over to them. It took a few evenings but we eventually got there!

There were a couple of new areas with rust but overall the general state of the SJ was very encouraging!

BigJimnyMeet 2022

20220713060641-a9a42f0b-xl
Yesterday we had somewhere over 76 Jimnys arrive for a meet-up at Parkwood 4x4, near Bradford for what was a sensational event again. The weather was glorious so a small group of dedicated owners camped over on Saturday night whilst others travelled across the country on the day. We had all types of Jimny from old to new and standard to fully modif...
