Thats nice. Maybe you would need some more lift, because you have offset wheels? And what about your gearing?

Jimnys been on MOT, some faults i knew were coming like steering wheel and hazard horn. Two that i didnt know and havent even checked was too much movement on both the joints on the axle going from gearbox to transfer. Ordered two from big jimny.
They didnt see the radius arm to axle bushes that was bad, ill change them anyway!

Is that ones or twos? Will you have to return for it being checked again?
And that axle should be replaced when you get the new transfer box?
I got loads of SJ gearbox/transfer axles for some reason. Only kept the ones with little or no slack.

I got till the end of the month so I have to get an appointment for mine now.

Do you reckon I could get away with just using glue (Karosserilim) to add my floor in the UK - England? Im thinking will that pass the english MOT?

As far as I am aware it should be welded if it was originally?

Here In Norway when the car body is not structural when the car has a frame, this will not even be checked unless there is alot of rust in the body mounts or seat belt or seat mounts.
I know severe rust will pass the Norwegian MOT as long as its sharp edges cannot hurt a pedestrian or occupant of the car, or away from the places i mentioned.
But how can they see if it is badly welded or well done glued?

I would say glue it in if you have rear seats removed
A thick coat of paint and nothing will be said at mot
Original floor is only spot welded then seam sealed
