I reckoned it was about time i put a few pics of my SJ410 up for y'all to see so i popped out into the car park at work and took some, but i can't get them to appear here. I normally just click insert picture and then browse, but i cant do that. HELP!

Until the pics turn up; it is a standard SJ410 apart from the SU carb, head unit, front bumper removal and the 195/80/R15 Insa Turbo Special Track tyres. Unlike most SJ's i come accross these days mine is road legal, and is in fact my only car. This weekend alone i have done slightly over three hundred miles. Home, greenlaning (where my little brother parked in a hedge, pic coming) and then back to pompey again. if thats not a good reason to keep it standard i dont know what is; mmmmm, SOA lifts on motorways.....

I wont be lifting it, but i might put new original pattern springs on 'cos mine are sagging like, well..... this is potentially a family site so they are sagging quite a lot actually. My Insa turbo's are theoretically an off-road only set and i have a set of road biased all terrains for the rest of my driving. Mods that are on the cards are a CB radio, better speakers in the back and a Land Rover style front bumper, to sit between the base of the grill and the top of the chassis, roof mounted lights wouldnt go amiss either one of these days. I have also obtained a 5 speed box from a Santana 410 that will go in at some point.

For those who havn't read the post where i intoduced myself my other big interest is climbing, and although my SJ cannot carry anything like the weight of my old 90 (see 'new to suzukis' post under new members) i can drive to the top/bottom of crags where mitsubishi's fear to tread and defenders only go in pairs.Twisted Evil  wave

Climbing is gooood.

As an observation i have yet to find a member of my university climbing club who doesnt like my SJ, or at least what it stands for, must be that outdoor person thing, it also avoids that vague suspicion bigger 4x4's sometimes get from the sensitive types.

i am led to believe climbing has changed out of all recognition in the last 10 years alone, but i have only been doing it for 3 years myself.

girls, 4x4's, shooting and climbing.

And the pub. Rolling Eyes

I can sympathise with that! I don't even own a house and there always seems to be a hundred and one things to be doing.

My SJ packed in last night, or at least screwed up a bit, i was rattling along the motorway and put my foot down to go around someone who was only going a little slower than me when i completely lost power, it was like i hit a 100mph headwind. I am not sure what is wrong yet, it will only run slobbering rich, so i limped home holding the choke right out and just tickling the accelerator. I am already commited to a full weekend, ah well.
