Bah! My S200KYS Jimny just failed it's MOT :-

001 - Windscreen wiper does not clear the windscreen effectively nearside
002 - Nearside Rear position lamp has a 'product' (MUD!) on the lens so it is not visible...
003 - Offside Side repeater has a 'product' (MUD!) on the lens so it is not visible...
004 - Nearside Side repeater has a 'product' (MUD!) on the lens so it is not visible...
005 - Nearside Rear Direction Indicator has a 'product' (MUD!) on the lens so it is not visible...
006 - Nearside Headlamp Aim too low
007 - Offside Headlamp Aim too low
008 - Registration plate lamp not working (it is!)
009 - Seat belt anchorage prescribed area is excessively corroded neaside - Outer Sill
010 - Panhard Rod which is adjustable loose threads (whoops!)
011 - Registration plate characters incorrectly spaced front
012 - Registration plate characters incorrectly spaced rear

Ten working days to sort it for a free retest...

001 - Wiper blades in garage ready to fit
002 - Wash nearside rear light out
003 - Wash offside side repeater out
004 - Wash nearside side repeater out
005 - as 002
006 - He's going to adjust it for me at retest
007 - ditto
008 - It is working, showed him when he brought Jim' back
009 - Ahhh, welding the sill :(
010 - Tighten the panhard nut up!
011 - Stick the legal plates on for the retest! ;)
012 - ditto

Won't take long to sort then! B)

Its the silly little things like that which are why I get my mot man to give the car a once over on the Sunday before the test. Saves the agro of a retest. Most of the time.

Temeraire (2018 quasar grey automatic)
One of the last 200ish of the gen3s, probably.

Wednesday, my day off...

All 12 points addressed this morning, wandered around to book a retest... "20 minutes suit you?"

Passed! B)

Roll on the 9th of October for our annual day trip to the Lake District to drive all the best 'lanes in one day :)

A few recent repairs...

I managed to bend my custom front panhard rod on our last trip to the Machynlleth area... to drive the B*st&rd, so my steering wheel was at 2 o'clock when driving in a straight line... so round to my mate's garage, up on the ramps, panhard taken off and adjusted so that the axle was equally spaced across the front, and with the steering wheel clamped straight, the whole lot was checked with laser alignment kit.

I've also recently replaced all the bushes in the front radius arms, and this morning I've taken the spring assisted return-to-centre steering damper off, and put the old one back on... I think the spring was making things worse rather than better, leave that for the Landies I think...

I also sourced a new rope thimble for the rear winch rope today, a few local suppliers before I struck lucky! ;) So that's fitted, and I finished up by having a thorough check of all the nuts under the Jim', checked the winches, respooled their ropes, etc, ready for our impending day trip to the Lake District on Sunday... B)

Stopped by the Police to see where we'd been and where we were going...

And then names and registrations taken to check legality...

Thumbs up! Good to see them policing the 'lanes and keeping the knobheads off! :evil:

That 1st bit was proper rocky. It would make a nice change for me as down in the south east we have mud,
mud and more mud. :)

Finally sorted out my Death Wobble :laugh:

At first I changed -

The kingpin bearings, shimmed them a little whilst I was doing it...
All the front radius arm bushes
The bushes in the front panhard rod

But no, the Death Wobble was still there... :evil:

So this weekend I took off -

The Zanfi drop pitman arm
The Zanfi Panhard Rod drop bracket, and
The BENT* Bent Stainless Panhard Rod that Redacted made me to get around the clash between the two Zanfi products.

And then fitted a JimnyBits straight panhard rod and a stock pitman arm...

WOBBLE SORTED! :woohoo:

Zanfi bits to be sold...

Went for an hours test drive round some country 'lanes close to me yesterday (Sunday) after rebuilding it all, and have been around and about on errands today on the roads where I'd normally get a wobble...

Love for my Jimny rekindled! :kiss:

* I bent the bent panhard rod on the Machynlleth "Bastard Lane" trip, mentioned above

Hello! and Sorry! I've not updated the build / usage thread for far too long...

And so, an update...

No real mods done to the S200KYS Jimny since the last update really, just maintenance / inspections to keep it going whilst we've done the following trips -

Local Bimble on the 13/11/16

Strata Florida Area 27/11/16

Banking as the crow flies 28/11/16

Local (North Wales) Bimble 11/12/16

Christmas 'Laning 27/12/16

Our next planned trip is Staffordshire and the Peak District on the 22/01/17.

I should be fiddling again with S200KYS soon though, always something to do... :whistle:

Dave ;)
