Being released without intervention. The garage can't locate parts in a timely manner in the supply chain locally. So until parts are in hand she is coming home and being held in reserve for emergency. It does mean I get to continue trying to get the grand vitara to return more than 23.6 average mpg.

Got sent home from work this morning due to the Lock-down, so gave my Jimny a good snow-foaming, hand wash and a vac inside. Should stay clean now as it won't be doing many miles for a bit.

Well was supposed to be in France on leave, but hey........so used the Jimny to move some new water troughs and concrete plinths for under them in to horse fields. Lovely day as Bill of Withers once said for 40 seconds or so....so using the cabrio as a pick up was welcome anyway.
The land they are on is peat ground so when it's wet it just swamps, but today it was just very damp , so perfect to use the Jimny to flatten the fields where the horses hooves had churned the up! Just selected 4wd and drove in straight lines side by side for an acre.
Then dug new drainage ditches and set new harder standing at the gate entrances ....using the Jimny to flatten it evenly down .
Proper motor for a proper job.B) ;)

Fitted a 3mm thick Tinted Perspex Sun visor to the inside.
Never had much luck with the thin stick on ones TBH...

Don't you go getting too used to the GV and all its space!

It's not the space, it's the extra wheelbase I'm loving, it doesn't pitch over the speed bumps on my road anything like as bad as Dreadnaught. It's very relaxing.

I washed it, I washed it again even though it's not moved, this morning I considered detailing the engine. Thankfully I have found something else to do, but it was a close call.
Ordered KONI shocks for it but the current eta is as expected, sometime soon to never, but if they do turn up something to do while I am stuck at home.
Good news is refurbished swivels still 100% smooth and rust free, waxoyl underside still perfect and no rust to report.....blast - stupid reliable car :laugh:

I put on the "summer" wheels yesterday only to wake up to 20cm of snow today..
Rain is coming next week, so they will not come off again, and my winter tires are worn out or old and hard and useless anyway,.

The summer wheels BFG MT is no snow tire in my opinion but for a very careful trip they will have to do. main roads will be bare asfalt.

Got another car and I can walk to work.. And with the C-19 lockdown I shouldn't be going anywhere anyways.
