Nothing. Still in Dubai.

However, I did read an interesting write up about the Jimny in a local car magazine. "Not particularly comfortable and do not take out of town unless going off road, where it is great fun". No surprises there then. Stated it would run rings around the wrangler and patrol. Still no surprises.

BUT, off road out here is dune bashing which is great fun and as the Jimny is light it should just skim across the top (the yank jobs are useless - too heavy).

In view of recent comments regarding what sand does to the brakes, Suzuki must be bringing in Jimny discs, pads, drums and shoes by the container load!!!!!! :ohmy:

May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your crutch (and your arms not be long enough to scratch)!!

Nothing today as am on child care duties while my better half is at the races, last night I rewired the winch (not completed), test fitted new spotlamps, removed OSF wheel bearing and forgot to rebuild the NSR brake!

The never ending task of keeping a jimny on the road.

Near side front wheel bearing, new second hand front panhard rod, bent the old one on a tree stump, freed off all four caliper slides, took the vacuum pipes off and put loops on the hub connectors while I was under there. Will tackle the back brakes tomorrow.
John.

On the 8th Day God made the LandRover -
On the 9th day he swapped it for a Jimny.

Some time ago I bought a second hand Asfir fuel tank guard and today got around to fitting it. The biggest problem was getting the old one off; rusty nuts seem to be my nemesis with the Jimny! Luckily, my Irwins bolt grippers have done the job and got them all off.

The old fuel tank guard was rotten and certainly not up to the job of protecting the fuel tank. The bolts holding the old guard on needed replacing. I used some 10.9 Hi-tensile steel bolts. The specification you need are M8, 25mm long thread and a thread pitch of 1.25mm.



Here is the new guard before fitment to the Jimny (the brown stripes are the parcel tape that I couldn't be bothered to clean off!).





Fitted to the Jimny.

Patched exhaust with bandage until I get round to fitting a new one. Doesn't blow raspberries any more :lol:

Tried taking off side bars and knackered by crappy cheapo rachet :dry: Going to need to get a new one. Drivers side is off, just the other side to do.
