07/07/08 - Cargo net mod from Chris

A modification sent in by Chris - Many thanks.
As my Jimny is also my daily drive, one of the things that I don't always enjoy is the lack of useful storage space. This led me to conclude that the concave space in the rear door needed to be used, otherwise it is wasted space, so I made this little modification...



The net cost me £6.31 from ebay (including postage) and I've used about 1/4 of what I bought, the bungee cord came with the net. The little tabs are made from cheap nylon webbing, to make 8 of them used about 1.5ft of strap. By taking the door card off I was able to drill through and use washers on the back side to give the whole assembly a lot more strength, which I hope will prevent the nuts from pulling through the plastic door card. It's ideal for holding waterproofs, hi-vis vests, gloves, shopping bags etc, and they will fold flat into the door if the boot is full of other stuff

04/07/08 - Smiffy and Macs ASBOJimny

Here are some pictures of Smiffy and Macs  ASBOJimny build. As you can see they started with a standard Jimny only a couple of weeks back....

So why "ASBOJimny"? Well its registration has the letters ASB in it and for those of you who are not in the UK an ASBO (Anti-Social Behaviour Order) is a warning issued to people who are deemed to be acting "Anti Socially" - so I guess this is going to be a monster!.....

02/03/08 - Wheel Arch Liners

Once a Jimny has larger wheels fitted it is normal to cut back the flares on the wheel arches to prevent them rubbing. This means that the factory fitted wheel arch liners no longer fit and in my case they have been thrown away at some point in the past.

This then leaves a large open gap in the rear of the wing through to the door hinge. When off-roading this then fills with mud and is impossible to clean. Worse still is that even when cleaned it still seems to bleed mud out down the side of your car and in my case, with a black coloured car, it looks permanently dirty.

SteveW has sent in the solution below. He has cut soft plastic to shape and inserted it into the wheel arches. It certainly looks neat and is therefore high on my own list of things to do - look out for my version in the future.

Many thanks to Steve for sending this in.
