another Jimny from AU!
Im 17 and I live in victoria, australia. My first car is a jimny and I'm so happy with it you could say the bug has bitten! Its a 98 JLX model and has done 100K kms. It was bone stock when I bought it about 6 months ago and although progress is slow with school and only part time work, i am getting stuff done on it.
This was when i first got the jim
My front bar which i got for $80. Im considering cutting the hoop off but I'm not sure about. You can also see my spotties which i got for free.
A small tailgate table that i whipped up in a few minutes after finding some stuff lying around the shed
and who said you need muddies to get muddy!
I'm currently in the process of finishing off a custom roof rack that I've made, as well as wiring in new spotlights and a new head unit.
all I've gotta do now is weld on some light bar mounts on the front of the rack, mount my shovel racks and i should be good to go.

It is quite handy, but if my car had airbags I wouldn't be able to mount a homemade bar it would have to be a commercially tested and engineered bar
Bought a few goodies online this morning
Also bought a compressor, snatch strap and a wiring harness for my light bar as I don't have time to make one from scratch at the moment
I'm starting to plan my rear storage area, I'm not sure if I want a big single draw that I can divide into segments to keep stuff organised or just a big flat floor all the way to the seats for max carrying capacity
What's everyone's thoughts on this?

I was thinking something like that would work well. Im still caught between the two though because if i made a draw, I could easily mount some 6x9 speakers in the back, possibly a second battery among other electrics e.g. inverter and usb ports for charging.
I've been bored at school lately so I have been drawing up a possible design for some rear draws.
all of the components are separated in the photo but you get the idea, so its got a single draw 630mm deep, then a storage compartment behind the draw which has a lid that would be on a hinge. You can see the holes for some 6x9s in the back of the draw.
probably nothing new here haha just got bored so i decided to draw it up
Mind you I could probably just try both the materials shouldn't cost that much, especially just for a flat floor
Thanks fusion 360 makes it pretty easy it's a great app
I also found today when I took off my drivers side tyre that there was two severed vacuum lines (I think)
I then noticed my hubs are locked in even though the lines were severed, so it looks like I've been driving around with my hubs locked for the past 6 months. Oops.
Looks like I'll be fitting manual hubs in the near future!
