Using the shadows to workout sun angle and moss on the side of the garage/tree they already have your approximate Lat/Long and are just accessing the DVLA database to see who has a recently MOTed Jimny and a imported MR2.

Put my new stands to good use giving the Jimny a full fluid change. Happy to see that the gearbox / transfer oil coming out is as clean as the oil going in, no bits on the plug magnetics.


Checked up on the swivels, approaching 1.5 years since I refurbished, still no signs of rust or play in the bearings. Fingers crossed I will get many years trouble free service, looking good so far.


Just the differential oil to change tomorrow, lack of light stops play.

Re-sprayed my spare wheel cover, it was badly scratched with a couple of deep marks.

After a year of having no clock in the car due to removing the original radio I finally did something about it! As an added bonus it has inside/outside temperature as well, but I'll have to see whether the first location I could think of to stick the outside sensor is even remotely sensible. Centre console looks even messier now, but it's all electrically safe & physically secure which is what matters!

^^^^^^^
Super neat Martin. What's the main purpose of the change, less fade, improved braking or aesthetics and did it meet your expectations?
Thanks
Mike

If I hadn't just forked out for the ebc set up I'd be after this. Are the discs and pads available in Gucci spec?

Ive just fitted mine today and used EBC ultimax pads (their cheaper ones), but the greenstuff are also available if you like them. Might even be an EBC vented disc, though I cant see that being any better than the discs Martin and I have.

Scimike; Its to stop the warping of discs. The much bigger tyres put more stress on the solid discs and they are prone to warping, fade, etc. This also has a slightly bigger piston in the caliper and slightly bigger pads, both of which give a fair bit more bite and less fade. Asthetics is largley irrelevant as you cant really see it and even when you do it pretty much looks like it was made to be there :-)

Only snag is you have to take the caliper off and tip it up to bleed them (nipple is on the side when fitted)
