    Hi 4x4earth
    this is my latest creation due to having some financial difficulties and having to close the doors my business and sell off my toys.. I've decided to give myself a tight budget for a 4wd build of $10,000 on this one being my daily drive it wont be to wild just capable and fun . oh and yes we bought a jeep as a family car ..

    It started as a $1000 low km 1999 suzuki jimny that had pretty rough body work

    soon as i got it back to Tasmania from Victoria I started stripping it

    first job was removing the sucker bush that had started to call it home
    then start cutting the 5.5" out of the guards so the planned new rubber will have a large enough living area.
    after this I prepped and sprayed the whole thing in Upol Raptor liner satin black

    last week while I was on holidays I took the time and swapped out my crappy stock seats and fitted a set of old school narrow saas seat and had a two seat conversion completed with engineering
    firstly I removed the old seat bases and made up a 40mm peice of 4mm steel and welded two 20mm tabs to bolt it to the frame where the reclining mechanism once was using 4x 8mm hi-tensile bolts and lock nuts.
    the front mounting tabs for the standard seat pick up in the exact same spot as any saas seat pcd

    mounted and ready for seats

    still need some height tweaking but fitted seats i had to fit a couple washers under the front to align the seats for my height. 20160223_204635.jpg

    and engineered ......!

    the engine bay will be getting sprayed when the engines out

    this weekend I fitted my 4:16:1 to my wt transfer case which i've had fully reconditioned and also bolted on a big jimny spinal mount transfer adapter kit.
    I also fitted a decent mounting point for my breather using the stock transfer breather location .
    here is a quick guide how to :

    firstly twist out the factory breather with multi grips ,

    second get a 1/4 bsp thread tool and tap a thread in the hole left behind .

    now take a 1/4 bsp to 1/8bsp adapter and screw into the hole .

    once you have done this screw in the angled 1/8 bsp male 90 degree elbow and your done .
    you can also use the same method for the gearbox on any suzuki . below pictured is a cruiser but you get the drift

    I coated it in Caterpillar sun-bright yellow for that extra traction factor and bothed it all back together with some heavyduty bling ready to bolt in .

    Mate that upol raptor paintjob is wicked. Have always wanted to do the same thing myself. Reckon you could take a stab at what it cost you to paint the whole car in it? I can dream.

    It's cost me about 300 for paint and 100 for. Consumables. Easy as pie just scuff it up with 80grit and spray it on it takes abit to get it right this is my 3rd vehicle I've done. I've found one heavy coat followed by 2 light flash coats is the best to get a smooth flowing finish with no lines

    The latest update I've fitted my 3" lift .. It looks huge at the moment but it should sag a lot
    Next is a decent set of tires .
