Having fought with the flanges and battled with the speedo drive I finally split open my transfer boxes ready for a Rocklobster conversion.
This is what I found....

My Jimny really seems to show every scratch and mark. Whilst my old SJ managed to look smart no matter what I dragged it through but the Jimny paint seems to be easily damaged. Therefore my solution is to cover it up. I bought a set of Suzuki decals from http://www.firststopdecals.co.uk/Â designed for a Suzuki Swift. This means they do not fit in quite the way they should but I think they look nice anyway.
First - here is a picture of how they should look.......
So with everyone else sending in pictures of the modifications they are doing the question is...what am I doing with mine!
Being a committee member of TV4x4 we have been out surveying 4x4 sites for next years calendar. We recently visited Hogmoor which is a fantastic site, so the club will be booking it for a trial next year. The visit to Hogmoor showed that the standard Transfer Box (if you remember I am back on a standard box after the chain stretched in my Low Ratio Gearset Jimny Transfer Box) is not up to the job so I am starting to build up an SJ410 RockLobster ready to fit. I am producing the write up for this and hopefully this will appear in the new year.....
