Brazilian Jimny

Thanks to jimnyexpeditionbrazil for posting some pictures of his Jimny from Bazil.

The great thing about Brazil is that they have very much gone their own way which means Dealers supply the 4x4's in modified form with Suzuki Brazil catalogue modification parts. This should be a world wide standard, in my opinion.

Another SJ Build - Sam's Yellow SJ - Back on track

A while ago I posted some pictures of Sam Emery's SJ rebuild, unfortunately at the crucial moment the Welder he had lined up to do the welding was no longer able to do it.  Therefore there has been a very long wait until the next update.

However, he has now found another welder and more progress is being made. 


I am sure from following James' Lil Red SJ rebuild that you will recognise exactly the same issues and repairs being done to this SJ.

The rear wings needed replacing.

Lil Red - SJ restoration - Final Paint - Part 1

This week we reached the final stage of the build at Winchfield. The SJ went into final paint.

This is a long post so scroll on down!!

In order to do this the main panels had to be finally fitted. In this procss it was noticed that the front cross members did not fit properly into the new wings. Again this was due to the poor manufacturing quality of the wings.

As you can see the alignment is poor.

When checking the panel alignment, Winchfield Engineering noticed a slight dent in the sill that we had not seen, On our model of SJ this part is normally covered by a black rubber strip so it seems likely that the sill had gently contacted something and got bent but it was hidden behind the rubber,

Therefore they had to pull the dent out and remove it.
