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.

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?

Today I raided my penny jar, as I needed extra storage space. I came up with a nifty solution.

Got some velcro from Toolstation.


Some gear stowed. The soft boxes come with a divider and velcro already attached at the bottom.


Looks good too.


Provides a decent amount of staorage space


But best of all, the storage holds the luggage net, and for security/privacy so know one can see what you have, the boot matt lies snugly over the top.

Stowage boxes can be taken out with ease (because of velcro) and your seat down matt out option is available at any time.

Perfect.

Lot of work you've put in there Andy - and the result is looking mighty fine.

All you need now is to be talent-spotted as the new presenter of the upcoming TV show "Pimp My Jimny" and you can then begin to recoup some of all that money you've spent!

Seriously though, really good job well done.

Thanks fella's. I dont like to brag over material goods, its just passion and excitement. Aldo to give ideas to any new jimny owners.

Anyways.. i did a bit of off roading this morning. I'll try and upload my video too later.


Not one bit of noticable wheel spun, just beavered straight up the incline. Decent control works a treat! Confidence now building up nicely, it'll be on its roof in no time
