And there it is back together. What a great way to spend the evening!
Not sure I will sell this windscreen glass, it has the dark green tint sun strip in the glass. No way I will ever get one of those again. Scraping the trail tough streamer off soon..

As the jimny would not pass the mot on 235 tires, it borrows the 215's from the SJ a few days. 
The SJ Looks good on 235. But the low gear and hp will suffer. 
I thought modern alloys on the old car would hurt my eyes more.

Had a nice visit after the overlanding festival. 
This as big the meets get at my garage. 

Sold a wiper arm, gear shift stick and half a drive shaft for 10euro :)

Viv and I had parked up overlooking a fiord when I noticed a man sitting on a bench. He wasn't moving, he was just staring at the vista before him. I got into conversation with him and he told me he was from the Netherlands and that he came here every year.
"We haven't got anything like this back home" he said.

  stuck as the road was only passable with a 4x4.
Inside closed roads and in the wildest Mountains we often met people from Holland on my last trip.

Been at it on my 410 again. 
Removed some riveted pieces on the tub edge to find gaping holes. So cut some sheet steel to fully weld in

 

 

 
Not pretty but steel beats rusty holes any day.

It was a cold dark night.. - 10.
Took the SJ out for a "warmer" and ran it up to temperature. Avoiding salted roads. 
Put it back in the storage after. 
Thinking I will take it out once every month or so. Stored inside in above freezing in a dry warehouse so will be Just fine. 
I have full access to it so might do the odd job as well to it during winter.
