Thank You Lambert for your suggestion!
However, today I got 4 bolts (10mm/1.25mmX20mm) with chrome 16mm hex heads, from the local bolt & nut wholesaler. For only $5, they look real nice! The 8mm "O" rings under the bolt heads protect the paint. ;) I'll keep the original bolts with the wheel mount. :)

I don't mean to sound negative, but, have you considered seeking some further tuition for reversing? Not sure how the situation is in Australia, but in the UK it isn't uncommon for driving instructors to offer refresher lessons to folk who are struggling with aspects of their driving. Based on what you said about the situation you had in the shop car park this, in my opinion, seems suitable for you.

The Jimny is a really easy car once you get used to it, my advice, coming from driving trucks & vans, is to try & learn to use the big square side mirrors rather than the rear view, once you are used to them I find it far easier to reverse using them rather than turning my head.

Caelite, thank you for reading my topic, for understanding where I am having difficulties and for your reply.

I do find the Jimny much easier to drive and easier to reverse than the Aveo/Barina it replaced. See: www.bigjimny.com/index.php/forum/6-jimny...p-received-thank-you
I was medically assessed as "OK to drive the Jimny" in February so I will continue driving until the next assessment in November. In the meantime, should a suitable driver training program become available I will certainly consider it. :)
