Kingpin Highlander Diamonds, same as I had on the front on the 15's, wicked tyres.

They don't rub either...

Seats are in, massive improvement over standard, and being leather they're easier to wipe clean

How difficult it is to fit those seats? Do they fit "as is"? Or do you have to weld/drill in order to bolt them properly?

Far from direct fit.

I have kept the original jimny floor bolts, and the original Saab 93 seat bolts, but had to make the brackets in between. They're far from a perfect fit/mount, but are so much comfier than standard :)

I can also unbolt them and remove them if needed using original floor bolts :)

I bought this black(ish) cage'd Jimny !

My shell was VERY rusty, the work to save it would have been extensive, and I wanted a cage or some sort of roll over bar, just by chance I stumbled upon this, for a price I couldn't say no to, was cheaper than purchasing the materials to make a cage for mine, let alone the time, the time to fix body etc.


Plan is swapping over all my suspension, engine etc into this one, solid shell, solid chassis and cage all done ready for me, much easier than sorting rust and building a cage, which I would have to pay to be done B) :cheer:

I recognise that shell! Was it Rich you bought it from by any chance? Seemed a decent fella and wasnt asking much for it.

Ive got the seats and KAP arms from it. Would have had the shell but i aint got the space/time for that amount of work.

Good luck with it all :-)

Nice work tom
Good to see you've been busy getting the old girl back together.
Still miss it being sat outside but glad you're going to putting the shell and cage to good use mate
