Looks great Keith.... Jack was talking about something similar, he's concerned about forward rolls when he is trialling, some of the shear drops that the landy's just fall off, virtually swallow a Jimny.

Moved the spot lights from number plate mount to bumper (reinforced), painted a Red S, added PPF to leading edges (bonnet, painted area around grill, A pillars, sills, back door where people grab the frame).

The winch is finally wired in and working!

I found a nice spot to put the control box just next to the (now understood to be) 'fuel evap canister'.

First step was to make a bracket with some sheet steel. A bit of cutting, bending and some holes drilled and voila.

A quick test with the controller attached - easy enough to get to the control box wire input but I will be relying on the wireless controllers mostly.

Then a quick BBQ to celebrate!

Tidy solution there B)

BBQ looked tasty too :laugh:

Is your winch a winchmax one? (the controller looks like mine). I discovered that the solenoid box isnt that waterproof and the little black box inside it for the wireless reciever is not waterproof at all. Mine failed predictably so I had to buy whole new controller and receiver setup complete. Luckily it still worked on the wire, but was annoying for a while.

There was some meat cooking in the background I promise (noticed it just shows us eating tomatoes in the picture :laugh:)

Yes it's a winchmax - bought it quite a while ago now but just got round to finally getting the thing on.

I had a bit of a poke about before installing it with a view to figure out what might go wrong if it ever did - it seemed OK. From memory, I wanted to check the receiver box didn't have any holes in it. It had multicoloured wires going into it which were heavily braided and kind of hard siliconed in one side of the receiver - does that sound the same to how yours looked?

I will take it out though and have a look to check it over more thoroughly and pay more attention to the other bits in there if you say you have had issues with water. Did you do anything extra to help waterproof it from that point on Riccy?
