Finished and fitted my load area liner.

 
 

It's made from two pieces of plywood, lined on the top with some foam workshop mat.  I put a raised edge around the sides and back to stop anything from falling on to the seats/footwell, two strips of wood stop it from going in to the seats and the workshop mat locks the two halves together.

It's main purpose is to give a good even surface for our dog to sit on, but it will be handy when going to the tip.

Much neater than mine but also newer and less abused!

One of the last 200ish of the gen3s, probably.

Changed the ignition coils. I just got my Jimny from the annual service and drove for 15km and very close to home the motor started to shake a lot.

I humpled home and checked the spark plugs and 1 and 4 were a little colored. After putting in the spark plugs the car started as usual because the coils had cooled down.

So thank you very much for this great forum because here I had learned that the coils fail, what it feels like, and how to change them.

I put a JB23 bonnet a grille on my JB43 during the week. Had to cut the Bumper a bit for the clips on the bottom of the grille and I have yet to replace the bonnet latch, which is just cut and bolted to allow me to open it at the moment.

I decided to find and fix the leak in my exhaust back box today (to try to make it last until the spring when the weather will be better to fit a new one) only to discover it was leaking from the joint.

One fixing bolt (the top) had sheared off and the bottom was already to go. I had to drill the two bolts out of each flange, it took some time, it might have been quicker to take the back box off.

I found what looks like the start of a hole in the back box, so patched it with gum gum and a bandage and put a bit of sealant in the joint and tightened up two new bolts.

Hopefully it will last a few months.

Whilst kneecaping myself, I reverted back to the standard DRL/Foglight set up, but with LED upgraded bulbs as supplied by Marti.ln in the shop.
