JDM spec SJ's - 6 stud wheels?

Just watching a youtube video of a guy with a JDM import 85 SJ413, and it's got 6 wheel studs. Anyone know why Suzuki would do that?

Bear in mind that when you spray the clearcoat, it'll fill in tiny imperfections, including tiny cracks. That's one of the reasons why I suggest extra coats... ;)

Yes, my headlights had the same crazy paving pattern, and I got it out with sandpaper. If it's cracked (as in, really deep cracks rather than just the surface) then you may be right - but it worked for me.

Take them out, sand them with 600 grit until the yellowing is gone, then work up to 2000 grit, then buff them with compound. They'll look super foggy when you're done. Now spray them with a light coat of clearcoat. They'll instantly go clearer, but don't be tempted to spray heavily - trust me, you w...

Re: Anton's build

I managed to get the fuel tank back in, but because of my health problems, just doing that near killed me (I have...

Do you have an electric fan?

I know that a mate of mine had serious problems with heat in his Hilux, which went away with an electric fan.

Re: Hello from Norfolk

:welcome2:

There are a few places in wales where a 4wd is a lot of fun, I've been wanting to do a trip myself for years. The Swift is a great car, loads of fun, but I personally would go for the Jimny every time.
