Removed the other side bar, put some Instant Gaskit on the passenger side hub to make it water tight and topped up the transfer box oil.

All pretty boring really :dry:

Spun my wheels around to give the truck a wider stance and sprayed them black...paint makes it much better offroad, obviously

I backed my Jimny into my solid brick home today and the house didn't have any give at all :blush: So off to the wreckers and replace the large reflector/reverse light fixture on the drivers side and lots of silver gaffer tape to hold the rear bumper together until I can get a replacement or make one up like I've always planned.

Then I took the Jimny to mechanic to have new front wheel-bearings, knuckle kit and king pins etc replaced. Will get Jimny back sometime next week.

For the next few days will have to take the Ford to work so a bit of luxury and comfort for me. 300cu in of supercharged in-line 6 and brakes that actually pull up when I want ;) Good old Ford.


Jap Jimny's go "OK"
But Santana Jimny's go "Ole!" :p

It's hard to run like an Emu
when you are girt by Numbats!
