Not my kind of thing that mate, I think I'm going to go standard.
Standard but go SU carb out of reliability, quick easy mod and easily reversed to go 100% standard.

Think I would go 1.6
Sid James gone but never forgotten
Jimny 1.6 not as good as an SJ but still good

Il get a bit more balls deep into it then decide, I have everything to do either.

Looking at the cab I'm going to have to chop the roof off as the corrosion is so bad around the screen, not ideal but I think I can make it work, il unpick the spot welds and do the same on the other cab and swap them.

so chopped the roof off my other kja shell, and poped it on this one before it was blasted. The screen surround was so bad !

Came back from blasting not the end of the world, this is the third shell I've had blasted now and it's not To be honest it's not the worst. The shell in thumper I'm afraid to say is better but I've beaten that to death now hahahaha

But we shall repair this one and it will be cool.

Update on stuff, sold the 16v engine I had, and sold the lwb that had an engine in it too lol

But I got plenty to do before I worry about that stuff

So we are off again, main areas of concern are the rear outward most body mounts as they're gone !!


Osf front floor I've ordered a repair panel for, up cut that out and repair the inner sill at the same time.

NSF needs some small repairs, bulkhead needs two small repairs. Outer rear sills need work, inner offside is no good that needs a large repair as was lost in blasting lol

Yesterday I nearly completed all the roof repairs, welding Tiny pin holes in the roof ! Nightmare !!

Il go back today and do some more, the. Every week my mate is coming to help me one evening per week.

Il do the cab first, then bed, then sides, the front end, then chassis, then running gear.
