Ill be honest, the last 5% has been and still is being the hardest part. You get so close and forget everything that needs doing :er:
I put a todo list on my build thread, and changed stuff to a green font as I finished them. That way I had a nice list of jobs online where I could never lose it.

Never actually finished the list though... :(

Mamaged to get the roof on this aft. Looks 99.9% done but its not. I still need to sort the handbrake and rear brakes. Also investigate why the speedo cable seems too short :er:

Looking great!

That's a nice offer, btw - but unfortunately I didn't have anywhere to put it anymore, and I had to sell it. One day I'll have space for another and I'll probably get a Jimny - I need the coil comfy life, my spine is bad and the SJ literally injured me more than once while offroading it.

Or I'll win the lottery and buy yours... :)

Thats a shame, i think a vitara would probably be more comfortable for you.

Maybe its only fitting then that an sj broke him. Joking aside i think my white was more comfortable than a standard jimny

Funny - it broke me, yet I still loved it. Until right this moment, I didn't realise I was a masochist...
