Bah! :(

Just got an email this morning to say that the seamless tube insert sleeve material had been shipped this morning by 24 hour carrier, so looks like I won't bet getting it for the weekend...

Never mind... there's a buggy that needs finishing ready for the BigJimny Meet!

Wandered off for a bit... you'll find me in the garage building a Jimny Buggy ;)

I'd be interested in the measurements of the shortened R72 shaft?

My R72 shaft next to an SJ wish I knew about the different splines first :silly:


I'll swap you my shortened R72 shaft for your decent looking SJ one if you fancy a 0 cost swap? (assuming UK postage costs similar to each other), send me a PM ;-)

I can measure it on friday when next in the garage otherwise...


If you're still after the SJ shaft I can package it up and send it if you cover the postage?
Just chopped mine and added a section of 1" 1/4 bar in to it.

Cut out 65mm from the centre and it seems to fit good.

Got round to doing my own prop this afternoon as I had a couple of hours off in the garage B)



Sleeve in



Nice bevelled gap for a nice deep weld...



Welded, ground, sanded...



And.. painted...

About ~15mm longer than the Samurai one pictured with it above...

Back to the buggy tomorrow, this side project will have to wait for a bit, there's a BigJimny Meet to get to! 10 weeks away? :ohmy:
