Gotcha, makes sense now, I was figuring you were going to have to feed it through the tube each time you wanted to use it up front, never thought about just doubling the rope up for the back

Hi! Sorry, not been on here for a while... the last few times I came back earlier in the year there were PHP error messages everywhere, but that seems to have been resolved?

I'm still cracking on with this Jimny based buggy, here's some latest photos...

That was yesterday, the 1st of July when I drove (!) it out of the garage to turn it round...

That's the problem... I now have to do the other side to match!!! -

Another couple of months of Sundays then?! :D

All the parts of the jigsaw are here though!!! ;)

Hello! Sorry I haven't been off for ages... last time I came back there was database errors everywhere? Then Covid struck, etc, etc...

Anyways, I've been self isolating in the garage most of the year, and today the buggy saw the light of day...

Not quite finished yet, but it's getting there!

Wiring to finish, new clutch to fit, and then engine makeover... new radiator, belts, plugs, etc, etc...

Aiming for May when hopefully the sun comes out and the Covid clouds dissipate ...!

Looks brilliant if a little too clean, don't wait for the sun, my lad was out 4x4ing with his mates a couple of weeks ago, the SJ ripped all the rear suspension off & had to come back on a trailer, the Fourtrak spun all the bottom bearings & had to be towed back by the other Foutrak.
