Why not just get proper Jimny hubs from avm? No need to use spacers and you get more engagement of the drive splines on the stub shaft.

Haha my wheels have not long been sandblasted and painted that’s why I wanted black thought it would look better. I wasn’t sure about painting due to the moving parts did you strip it or literally paint the hub as one part

Just un boxed them removed the cheap looking 4x4 sticker
dropped them on some wood and sprayed em :laugh:
once fitted used a small amount of copper slip grease on the torx bolts
then filled the heads over with blue water proof grease
to help stop water ingress
the torx bolts are only M4 so not very strong
Had them on and off a few times in the last 2 years no problem

On avm style hubs the locking part is separate and held on with 6 m4 tapered head screws that are quite delicate looking. The actual hubs are held by m8 screws.
