Indeed… I was worried he wouldn’t like it (the buggy), but it was indeed a good day….

We even got nice greetings and response from everyone we met walking in various places :)

We used Wordpress when we had the greenlaning.blog so it would be the same details you used then...

Working in the garage today, so pushed the buggy out into the sun...

 

A friend who does "crafting" - t-shirts and stickers, etc, cut this for me... lined up straight with insulating tape...

 

The idea being that the "JIMNYBUGGY.COM" URL will be in all the blog photos, AND videos ;)

Then... I needed some product photos...

So I installed...

 

A ZookBOB accelerator brace...

 

Tucks up when not in use, but then you can drop it down and sit it on top of your accelerator pedal and twist the wingnut to get the desired RPM to winch or recharge the battery(ies) etc..

Here -



I then spent 20 minutes talking to a guy who walked passed and admired the buggy! :lol:

And then...

 

Finished off some of the ARB spacers I cut the other day...

These are also now listed on eBay too ;)

The Boogie is now sat waiting for a trip with Brett's group on the 12th around the Oswestry area... looking forward to that, and having our-Alan back in the passenger seat hopefully?!

Sorry, bit of a rough day yesterday, so only just catching up... facebooked this yesterday, but just updated the blog now -

jimnybuggy.com/2021/09/08/nooooooo/

Buggy let me down AGAIN yesterday, bottom radiator hose tore, and we ended up, once again...



... on a flatbed ride home again...!

Rather do that than cook the engine!

Day wasn't completely ruined, I swapped to the NGV and went tarmac-laning instead! :lol:

All the parts are on order to fix it, from the BigJimny store linked at the top of this and every other page on the forum..

Many thanks  to Martin for sourcing the correct radiator hoses to suit my VIN...! B)

We'll be back soon, but will unfortunately miss the greenlaning trip planned with Brett, Riccy and Alan this Sunday... :(

I really like your sharing!

I would change all radiator hoses and also the fuel lines and maybe the water pump, if it was not changed recently.
