Managed to fit my light guards on the indicators
Installed new rear bearings, brake shoes and replaced all oils in Gbox, Tbox and diffs..

Had a squeeky uj, replaced and thought it would be a good idea to replace the leaking tbox, hd mounts, gearbox mount, had a REALLY bad vibration, put it back to standard except the HD mounts, replaced front bearings, rear and mid prop, turned out to be the HD mounts..

So in the next few months i need to do all of the above. fun.

That's quite a 'to do' list.

Well haven’t done much on the builds over the last week but I’ve had a major sort out in the workshop as I’m trying to downsize back into one unit..

However I have been busy stripping this for a few parts to go in a future build :brows:

Little red trumpet thingy, hiding the hole a previous owner cut out for a DIY snorkel.

Yay or Nay?

yeah it looks slightly strange to me but I think it would to anyone who knows an sj well, but for the most part everyday public will probably assume its stock or serves a purpose, either way I'd say keep it

Also, as we say in the building game "If you can't hide it, make a feature of it" :D

Yeah, it looks slightly strange to me too slim, I'm about 50/50 whether I like it or not but will keep if for now.

I'll probably spray the sj gun metal grey at some point in which case I think the red will be a nice contrast.

That's very true Sherwood, and what I was attempting to do here :doublethumbs:
