Not really today, but hey...
Removed the rear seats
The floor showed some starting rust issues, so I fixed that.
Luckily it was only rusted through on 1 small spot, so I welded in a small patch
Treated all the other rust with Bilt Hamber Hydrate 80, which supposedly both converts the rust and seals it off
Then some rattle-can paint to finish it all up

I fabbed some frontrunner-style rails for floorboard to go on.
All bolted to existing mounting points
Floorboard is next...

Filled the tank and parked the 1984 SJ in winter storage. Warmish inside and easy accessible so I will visit often.

Lil Red passed its MOT with flying colours so it’s now back on the road. Well not really till next year when I officially reveal the car and its transformation in the spring.

Finally finished the rear floor...
May have overcomplicated it a bit (which doesn't show), but happy with the results

Replied by Rubyoptics on topic What did you do to your jimny today?
Ordered a new PCV and seal. Have an annoying shudder at idle and apparently this could be a solution. If not then new plugs will be next followed by coil packs. Fingers crossed!

Did you try flushing the PCV valve with carburettor cleaner?  I did that and it worked ok when I blew through it.

Changed my Norwegian insurance to more coverage as the used car price if i had to replace it, is higher now than when I bought it in 2016. And rising.
Had insurance just for theft and glass and fire, but now also for accidents of my own fault or single accidents.
Also now extras is insured up to 5000€ was just up to 1000€.
Asked to insure extras and equipment for more but cannot as the car is older than 9 years.

price went up from 360 to 520€ /year for 12000km

As a little treat I took my Jimny for a drive in the snow, down some selected gentle lanes and back roads, including a few snow covered hills, my Jimny loved it.

I checked 2 and 4wd, exploring the limits of the grip in 2wd and a couple of controlled rear end slides, just to check the behaviour in case you have to do it for real.

A very enjoyable short trip out, sadly no photos.
