Booked in this Friday to get the rest fitted, then all done. (For now) ;-)


I have the same cover but planning for a minor modification.
My rear tray arrived yesterday and is good. Nice thick grippy rubber with a decent lip to contain spillages.

Much better, Andy. :)

I ordered one, and it was delivered yesterday, only to find that the wrong one had been sent. :(

Semi rigid, black, no logo, was ordered, but I received the chrome/stainless version. Far more money, but not what I wanted, so it's being collected on Thursday, when the (hopefully) correct one, is delivered.

Pics will follow. :lol:




Steve.




Cheers steve.

Which is the semi-ridged one then? Sounds interesting.

Im still waiting on my SZ5 badge, led fogs/DRLs/reverse lights and rear boot liner. Big hold up in accessories going on. Then just the reversing camera..... then.....well, skint :pinch:



This, Andy:

But, this is what arrived:

www.amazon.co.uk/BARGAINWORLDUK-Wheel-Co...C180&sr=8-3-fkmrnull


With nowt chromed on the Jimny, plain black is my preferred option.


I will wait until we are back home before I start ordering a "few" bits and pieces. :whistle:

Really like that semi-ridge cover mate! Not keen on the blingy one neither. Good choice!

Andy - I've really enjoyed all your posts about your new Jimny, and your obvious pleasure in the vehicle shines through. If I'm half as happy with mine when it arrives then I shall be content!

Thanks Guy!

I've been as honest and as authentic as possible reviewing the Jimny. I even asked myself - "Andy, are you over exaggerating this car cus its new and shiny etc.." The answer was - NO WAY. :-) This really is the nicest car i have owned, bags of character, lovable and practical, a WINNER all round IMO.

I've had 8 cars in my life, including a ford ST in bright orange, and the jims fun factor kicks them all in the balls ;-)

I look forward to your own jimny posts Guy! I'm confident you'll love it. Hope so anyways...

Cheers!

Cheers buddy!

Being tight I have one of these on mine: www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07G2WWRXF

Fits well and I prefer the fabric look to vinyl but that's a personal thing :)

I use the polar blast first (as recommended by Ash) - LOL Cheers buddy!

Then Polar wash.... then followed by the BRILLIANT .... "Polar seal"



The polar seal makes the paintwork aqua-phobic :laugh: BUT it Works!

Then a "dabbing" down with this beavers fur to fully dry. No chamois! No swirlies! Perfect.

Highly recommended.

looky what we have here? Very nicely laid out jack n kit. I Space optimisation is key with the little jimny, and every little helps.


was able to place a few handy tools in with the jack.


With Jack foam holder removed. Very nice paintwork ;-)


Some crucial (in my eyes) kit .... now loaded - x2 HAM radio's, Medi-kit, Tyre inflator, tyre pressure gauge, torque-wrench, Emergency strobe (yes over-kill is my style), Playing cards (why not), extra gain HAM antenna with roof mount, LED power torch (which reaches the moon on a good night), hand wipes, lighters, handy bags, gaffer tape (for my unsuspecting victims), mini saw, wheel bolts, compass and a glock 17 ;-) Last one made up.



Or maybe not? :-)
