Introducing myself.. was created by 602
Hey, I'm here! When did that happen?

Whatever, me ... John Williams, born the other side of WW2,, which makes me a wrinkly. Nine years in the RAF, including a year in Arabia (Sharjah) and two years in Malaya (RAAF Butterworth) but lliving on Penang (and my wife still says I never take her anywhere) It was on Penang that I first saw and fell in love with the little ZOOK, but I didn't get one until earlier this year ...Jiminy V588XFW.

I'll have to rush this. She faioled her MOT yesterday due to rust behind the headlamps. Should that be a fail on a vehicle with a removable body?

I must dash. I hope I'm still herre when I get back. Fingers crossed

602 (Last three of my RAF number), but I will respond to John, or Mister Williams, or even "Sir".. Back later.

The body panel behind the lights is too close to the body mounts. Whilst most of the body does not count for rust at the MOT, anywhere near a body mount is a failure.

Hello John, Do you still get on the difflock forum?
Rust behind the headlights will be an mot fail as there is a body mount under each light, So within 300 mil of a prescibed area.
It's a common rust area on a jimny (and the boot floor).

It's been fettled just a tad.

Welcome, was it just difflock I know you from (as 602) of were you on any others?
I don't think I've been on difflock since I sold the 110, and that was about 10 years ago.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)
