Cheers all!

Next up is a diff guard and a funky exhaust. Might use a cherry bomb but a friend who is an excellent mechanic says he can make something unique, he made a great exhaust for my old SJ. Stay tuned lol.

(oh and the small matter of tax and insurance, bugger)

Need to sort out my lights, where'd you get those ones? I need an indicator and sidelight set for the front of my SJ, but I'm trying to be frugal...

Ok, ok, I'm being a cheapskate. I'm an SJ owner, what'd you expect?

It's not a question of how much you spend on your suzuki, but when your money will run out

Sorry, what I meant was - where the domed LR lenses came from originally. I want to make something for the front end of my SJ without spending too much.

Devon 4x4 do them cheap
Sid James gone but never forgotten

They are Land Rover lights, I did get them off flea bay years ago, £14 I think, probably a bit more now!
