As I am now the present owner of this (cheers trot) I figured I should continue the thread.

Failed the MOT on springs fouling the tyres, bit of M12 threaded bar and a spacer welded to the axle sorted that.

Got a shiny new rad to go in this week, finally got the Jimny steering box that trot was talking about 4 years ago fitted, PS pump is on but not connected yet, it's on the higher mounts but once the new rad is in it should go back to the original mounts. Got some decent pipes made up by a local company.

Raised floor is going I the back so the dog doesn't get too hot from the exhaust floor and should fit camping gear and tool box underneath. Treated myself to a proper tool kit for the SJ, anyway pics as follows.

He’s only bought it to fill drive space Robbie after scrapping his old vivaro and wondering “hmmm, what could fill the spot now?”

It is all true though, i have seen it in reality, moving, driving.

Crack on Tim, i’ll get mine sorted st some point.
