Cleaned the front seat belts by soaking them in a bucket of soapy water for 30 minutes and cleaned the crud off the top bracket.

Finally a quick spray of PTFE and now they go back on the reels something like automatic when you take them off rather than ending up trapped in the door.

Today I have mostly been recentering the steering wheel and cleaning the gunge out of the washer bottle.

Took my Jimny for a 200 mile round trip to see my Mum on her 90th birthday. Drove over the North Yorkshire moors in glorious sunshine, both ways, it doesn’t get much better unless you are off the black stuff and on the very soft stuff.

I could really feel the difference of replacing the kingpin bearings and even the engine seem happy to rev and pull, we made the trip in a record time [for a Jimny].

Today I have been mostly reorganising the wheel change tools which live permanently in the car from under the passenger seat to the front of the plywood liner to improve access and more importantly minimise rattle. I also added a pair of support legs into the footwells to see if it helps with the creaking while I continue to research the expanding foam idea. Also lubricated the door hinges and hand brake lever. Quite productive for me recently.
