I would suggest, taking worst case scenario in to account! Fitting the fire extinguisher within reach of the drivers seat? Imagine you have managed to roll the Jimny, are trapped inside and flames start licking your feet, extinguisher will be no good out of reach.

Appreciate the suggestion Soeley, that might be a better idea. My initial thoughts were to have it easily accessible from the boot, as in....if a fire did occur, I would want to be out the car and hammering the flames from the outside. However I didnt take the rollover scenario into account, and its a good point.

Nice1.

Nearing the end of the mods now. Apologies if this comes across as a bit "self-indulgent"......Its not my intention. However in saying that.......LOOKY LOOKY!! ;-)


Mud flaps, very subtle.


New front grille



Guy let me in the garage area to take these, they were very friendly and accommodating.

Very nice, Andy. You must have ran out of money by now. :laugh:

Did you have front mudflaps fitted as well?
