Looks good.
Is the number plate going to get located on the spare wheel blank cover?

Thank you, I am thinking of getting a square one made up and putting it below the Jimny spare wheel blanking cover. Need to put some LED’s to make it legal. Noticed the exhaust is illuminated in the dark with the old number plate lights.

Installed the latest version of OSMAnd (Sat Nav, Open Street Maps) in to my Android head unit.

I have used OSMAnd for a while now as it allows your own GPX routes to be added and you can download all of the Byways, etc for your region from www.rowmaps.co.uk), but it wasn't until the latest release that the Android version allowed the 2.5D (driving) view.

The screen is clear, bright, easy to see and the guidance (voice) pretty much standard.
 

Once you have your favourite off road routes added, it will even give you route guidance to the start and very likely as you drive along, at least it will show you if you are still on route.

Best of all it is free for 7 maps (each detailed UK region is 1 map) and there is a paid for version above this, but it's not expensive.  Also runs on iPhone if you just want to use it on your mobile.

Finished off fitting 2 front wheel bearings. Easier than I thought it would be. Back ones will need done shortly as well tho.

Fitted a new squib to the steering wheel to get rid of the dash warning light.  Think the old squib was past repairing after repairing 2 times previous.

Fitted new abs sensor wires to get rid of the other warning light.  Cheapo cable off eBay, 

Fitted the jimny lean correction bump stop to the right front spring and it's looking a lot better

2" Trailmaster suspension lift, 2"body lift, snorkel, full breather kit, 29" steel wheels with BFG tyres, tinted rear windows, CRT CB radio with modulator antenna mounted on rear, dog cage and tray in the back.

Finally today started to fit my new EBC disks and pads. The one being removed have just over 30k of very light use, but for sometime they have felt warped. You can see the problem in the surface of one, result of something else or just poor quality control?
These are Elcher from a car part supplier, very cheap at £25 each, so I guess you get what you pay for.
 

Yokohama Geolanders, Sony head unit, NAUTILUS Air Horn, DRL conversion, Rear cargo space, Elvis Bobblehead, transfer Guard, Indian hanging Elephant, Koni Heavy track dampers, Custom SS exhaust, Voodoo Doll, Adventure Rack with LED ight bar, vintage ERIBA caravan usually attached (yes it's slow)
