As my buggy was off-the-road (in the wrong sense of the phrase!), I was going to jump in the NGV and drive to Brett's to be his passenger, but the the NGV also broke down... :( At the eleventh hour, my missus lent me her Mokka... :) So...

 

I managed to jump in with Brett for the day, in his Jalapeno Jimny B)

 

Breakfast at the Rooster in Penrith with Riccy with his mate and gateboy for the day Joel B) Who kindly paid for brekkie!

 

Riccy leading and Joel opening (and closing!) most of the gates for the day ;)

 

In the awesome Ulysses...

 

Around thirty greenlanes and fords in the day, here's just a few summary photos..

 

 

Tyneside... I hate this 'lane! :lol: even worse as a passenger sitting on the left side!!!

 

 

 

 

 

These photos and more will appear in Brett's Blog real soon, so I won't spoil it...

Thanks to Riccy and Joel for plotting and leading, and to Brett for having me as a passenger for the day! B)

A quick update on the buggy…

James (Priestley) contacted me on Saturday morning for some metric fine nuts for one of his latest builds, and asked what he owed me… so I said “some advice!”…

Si I described the issues with the head on the buggy and he immediately asked, “we’re the head bolts reused or replaced…”

Long story short, the garage are redoing the head…

MANY THANKS to James ince again!…

Five weeks later! Anyone remember this thing -

 

Just nipped around to check on progress and found it running outside, warming up to check everything is okay...

The head has been skimmed again, I've supplied the head bolts* (via the BugJimny store - banner at the top of the page ;) ), and hopefully it's good to go if we get some nice weather over the winter months... otherwise it's getting driven four metres out of the garage and having a car cover thrown over it whilst I hide in the garage tinkering with the next one - the "lil-bugga" buggy...

* the rest has been done under warranty of the head work I had done in July at a cost of £800. Pleased with that, but don't want to see my mechanic mate out of pocket either...

As long as it's coming back :) I'd better clear some room when I finishing working in the the garage on Sunday then!

No work in the garage on Sunday due to a head cold that's going around...

But I managed half a day today, to make...

 

An ARB disconnect system for our-Alan, who now has his own Jimny!

 

Including an axle bracket that one of the previous owners had cut off!
