Rust around front body mounts was created by NicBeeee
My Jimny 2006 is suffering with tin worm around the front headlights, front body mounts. I have seen Google images of different repairs. Is their a repair section for these mounts available
Thanks
Nic

The only way is to get a donor from a scrap yard (IF you can find one!) and weld in.

Sorry for the delay in response, not been to healthy but am now on the mend. Thanks for the info, ordered a front panel today, removed the old one, surprisingly easy with minimal spot welds, just a little bit of strengthening to the inner wheel arches and should have a rust free Jimny.
