Fitted the BigJimny DRL LEDs, thanks Martin.  Also fitted a CarMate phone holder, which is a JDM accessory I got from Amazon. It replaces the fascia panel between the air vents and the stereo, adds two more "novelty bolts" and the phone holder can be attached to either of them (being over 50 and presbyopic, I obviously have it on the furthest one!).  Means I can use Google Maps for navigation without spending a fortune on a new head unit.  It was only £25, which is remarkable given the hideously bulky phone holders sold for £50 and more on some sites.  They even bothered to.match the plastic colour and texture to the Jimny dash.

The instructions are all in Japanese but it's fairly obvious

How does it match up when fitted? Does it look OEM or aftermarket with colour and texture?

It looks like it sits a bit higher than the original. I can't see the exhaust on mine and the stock bumper fits close to the tow bar.

The High Bridge looks like it is a bit higher, may be as much as 75mm?

The light clusters are more inset on the Highbridge, maybe designed for a Kei car conversion?

On our models the light clusters is further out in line with the edge of the wheel arch.

Lil Red ventured out in the poor weather (I was crying inside) but she’s with the detailer for some final correction polishing and ceramic coating. Will pick it up in a couple of weeks.
