Cool build. As far as I know, Samurai = Jimny in Japan, so a 2006 Jimny would be something like having a 2006 Samurai in other countries... I could be wrong though...

Cheers from Brazil.

this is true, the old samis were Jimny's in some places other than the US, pretty sure what this guy has is a 2nd gen Jimny, unless there was something in between I don't know about.

I make some progress.
Just to be sure that the bolt on the front tower will not bend i reinforcement it with this cylinder:


Here you can see how is going to be welded on the tower:




Put them with the bolt right through to keep it align:


And weld them:

Some paint and 2 hours i finally install the air shocks:


I also make some cylinders for the lower end:


And YES!!!!!!!:

If you notice the pictures, you will see that the travel of air shocks is ended before the radius arms did.



And one from the other side:



One picture with the 30's:


And one more but with the 33's this time:

Some more progress. I make a hole on the panhard mount and put the bar from this side:




And for the other side (chassi) i make a mount also:




And i weld it to the chassi:

The good santa is protecting my FOX shock....



But it is not done yet. I am going to make a truss between the panhard mount and the tube you are seeing here:




I also cut 2 inches of the LAND ROVER panhard bar and weld it again. This is only temporary. From the one side i am going to use a ball joint.

I like the stance too, but you REALLY need to brace the panhard frame mount! It will rip off easily

If you read again, you will notice this:
But it is not done yet. I am going to make a truss between the panhard mount and the tube you are seeing here:



This is only temporary so i can roll the car to my garage and make some more welds.

Best regards to Norway.

Very nice, love the pics and the progress.

I think i would brace that panhard mount i little more, since there will be some lateral forces pulling / pushing it.

Keep the pics coming, good job.

We have a member of our Norwegian Suzuki club living in your area i think, we should send him by with some stickers

some more progress this Saturday.
I finished the rear axle and put it back in to the car.

First i rehearse the fox on the rear towers, to see if everything is ok:






And then i slide the axle beneath the car:





And finally after a long time the car stands on it's own, with no help at all:

I also make some measurements. The axle clearance is 25 centimeters or 10 inches:



And the belly clearance is 50 centimeters or 25 inches....


Funny moment: i climb to the driver seat to mesure the roll cage and when i try to get down i fell like an idiot to the asfalt. I have to store the new height to my brain....

Thank you peter, and hello to you to.

First a little break. Previous weekend didn't work on jimny but on my nissan micra race car:
New white paint.
New rear and front lights.
16'' rims.
SPARCO mud flaps.
SPARCO hood pins.
4 Hella comet 500 driving lights
Etc. etc etc......


The hood is now painted...





This weekend now some more progress on jimny.
I make a model for the roll cage just to have an idea and i didn't like much

The curb after the dash is way to big and it might collapse when the time comes. Plus it is to close to my lights-indicator switch.


So i decide to do it right. I will remove the dash and the cage will follow the A-pillar form. But to do that i have to make i hydraulic tube bender.
So i leave the car and went back to my "office" to design one.

Then it hits me. "What if a make two tools in one"? A hydraulic tube bender from the one, and a hydraulic press from the other:

And to make it more interesting i forced my self to use things that i already have and they were all over my place....

I use a 100X100mm square tube:


Sorry for the pure quality...the camera was forgotten to manual focus.....


I also put wheels. The front with brakes.


This ugly dude is me working....


Almost complete:

I have to buy a 20 Ton hydraulic ram and a manual press and is ready...
