Absolutely awesome mate. I have considered selling up if I'm honest but yours proved the point that I will not get anything for it. Also I enjoy tinkering with it and keep having ideas for it. I just must get out on the lanes.

I've considered a roller paint job in drab olive with camo. Yours is like urban camo and quite cool.

I almost sold mine a few weeks ago to buy a diesel ute as I need something for hunting. But there was no point it works out cheaper buying a little trailer to tow around. Plus ive never enjoyed driving the mainstream utes (hiluxs, rangers, and so on), the Jimny has something about it that makes it fun to drive.

It is honestly looking very cool ;-) obviously silver is still better :-P
Some cream paint on the wheels would look good.

I thought about the log book issue a while after posting. It's not much of an issue with the low value and type of vehicles they are though.

What a car to take inspiration from too. An E46 M3 on BBS CH's!

So heres a couple of the pics now the 1.6 is in




you can tell its out of a vitara as it says so on the top ;)



the exhaust manifold will get replaced for the vitara one after the big jimny event as it will need a new custom downpipe which will get made in stainless to match the rest
