Yesterday the Bolts for the spare wheel mount were undone. :) Thank you to Nev, from Jim's Mowing!
Today, off to the Bolt-n-Nut Shop for something nice in Stainless Steel to fill the holes, I came home empty handed! :(
Back to Dr Google, now I'm looking for something 10mm X 1.25mm pitch with a button head, about 19-25mm long. :huh:

Edit: I found these, ex UK, but with an Aus agent, so I can buy 4 only. www.probolt-australia.com/black-steel-do...-x-1-25mmx-25mm.html (plan "B")

I'll keep looking and to keep the weather out, I have re-fitted the original bolts and put some 8x2mm (tap spindle) O-rings up against the bolt heads. See photo, below:

Have you tried a chandlers for the bolts might be a bit more expensive but not like importing from the UK?

I don't mean to sound negative, but, have you considered seeking some further tuition for reversing? Not sure how the situation is in Australia, but in the UK it isn't uncommon for driving instructors to offer refresher lessons to folk who are struggling with aspects of their driving. Based on what you said about the situation you had in the shop car park this, in my opinion, seems suitable for you.

The Jimny is a really easy car once you get used to it, my advice, coming from driving trucks & vans, is to try & learn to use the big square side mirrors rather than the rear view, once you are used to them I find it far easier to reverse using them rather than turning my head.
