    Building has been Slow going.
    Build Update :

    - Rottenwhole has been repaired on the firewall.
    - Got another set of Safety belts (back seat Safety belts of a Jimny) and testfitted them to ensure that they are working correctly.
    -steering wheel shaft required some adjustment.
    - did some more flat work (no pictures of that).
    - Airbox combination of Chana, Jimny, SJ have been built. Neither the Jimny or SJ oem airducting will work, so will be building my own ducting soon. (some prepwork for it has started. No pics yet).

    Build update :

    Continue of the firewall and rust repair:

    Firewall and side panal and a very small part on the driver side floor has been completely repaired and sealed, and redoxide done to prevent it from rusting while other work needs to be completed before full respray.

    Waterpiping for heater / airbox has also been sealed off.

    Dash install :
    Complete custom Airducting is being built and a combination of the SJ and Jimny ducting and own ducting is being used as the space to work with is not much, and to have functionality for heater and fresh air is required.

    The custom gearbox tunnel needs to be modified once again, by just a few mm, as the Jimny airbox is slightly catching it, and will cause a rattle/vibration that will make us go mad. So Slight adjustment is required.

    Unfortunately lost most of the pics.. But got 2 at least to show some progress.

    Build Update :

    -Airducting is complete. (all on a pile for now).
    Had to make a "small" hole for fresh air intake but will be covered up by the fender and mesh.

    - both front jimny seats are now in their correct positions. (no pics for now)

    - Started with paint work on firewall to test the stonechipping. And results looks very good.

    I have a friend with a SJ that recently bought and fitted them as well. Rear brakes on his SJ is better than ever.

    I hope that I could help someone else with my Build posts as well..

    Update Time again.

    Only the Bottom of the body needs to be sprayed yellow over the white Stonechipping. (ran out of paint).
    Bonnet, Grill and doors, Canopy and Front detachable roof needs to be Painted yellow still.
    Righthand side fender, tailgate needs some additional tlc with a little bit body putty to smooth it out (had a small accident with the rh fender and dented it.)

    - Installed the Stp black gold sound detening(bought 4.5mē). Interior floor & Firewall, inside the doors, and exterior in the gearbox tunnel
    Now the Rubber Nitrate matt can be Cut and put in place, Dash can be reinstalled permanently, and Seats can be Installed Permanently. And Wiring Work can begin. (After Finishing off the last few parts that needs to be spray painted.).

    Trying my best to Go to the farm now every weekend to get this done, and during the week source more parts or get some resolutions to challenges faced.

    Build Update :
    As per my Previous Update I have Decided to Get some powersteering installed on my SJ as well

    - Installed the Jimny power Steering box .

    NOTE to those looking to do the same : The box itself is a Straight fit. If you still wish to use the SJ steering damper, you need to either manufacturer a new damper bracket for it. or drill holes in the Jimny steering arm to fit the Original Damper bracket. (the Steering arms are NOT interchangable between the SJ and Jimny boxes)

    The powersteering feed and return hoses seems to be the correct lenght. and might need some slight adjustment to run with the chassis but not by much.

    in my case because the Crank(front) and Fanbelt pully are both v-belt pulley, I tried some different pulley combinations to see how I can make this work, because the Jimny Power Steering pump uses a serpentine belt (4pk). As of now, it looks like I will be using a different Powersteering pump where it will be easier to change the pully (Got one off another Engine we have, that is Almost exactly the same as the ps pump from the jimny).

    - Installed the Spill proof Nitro Mat
    this goes over the sound detening.

    - Installed the Jimny seats.. (Unexpected problems).
    Jimny Seats works great in conjunction with the Jimny Dash.. however.. we somehow made a mistake in calculations When test fitting them months ago. After Refitting the Dash and steering wheel again, found out that if you are a tall oke (1.9m) There is no way in hell you will be able to drive.. the Jimny seats now for some reason Hits the rear wheel arch and cant go all the way back. making the driving position impossible. So now I have a set of almost brand new Jimny Seats I cannot use...

    But I have a solution to this.. seeing that I also Bought another Set of seats for another project. Nissan Sani Seats.. I had a look at my original SJ seats my SJ came with and the Sani seats.. Both of them have a flat seat rails (the Sani Seat rails was a bit damaged). So I did some test fitting ect, and found that the Sani Seats although bigger actually works better than the Jimny seats. they can push back further until hitting the Wheelarch at the back. So, I will now be fitting The Sani Seats.

    - Dash and Airbox with plumbing installed.

    Haha this dash swop has caused so much additional modifications. and Test fitting the doors, Cause I was Curious already seen another Challenge.. : Need to Shorten the Window winders as it hits the dash, and cant make a full rotation..

    The objective for this weekend was to get the seats, floormat, Dash with airbox, Jimny Powersteering box installed. and to start wiring up the dash again.. Not all of it happened as expected.. but there has been progress even if it was just a little bit.. I just need to keep on pushing on.

    Some pictures below of the work conducted.

    It looks like electric windows might be a better solution than shortening the winder handle

    there is absolutely 0 space left under the dash for a Jimny sized aircon unit..
    I have been considering Doing aircon as well. but need to find a very small unit or a electric type of unit.. Haven't done any research on it yet.

    Does not seem like allot have happened but moving forward, slow and steady.

    Build Update :

    - Driver Side Seat is inplace, and I am in a comfortable Seating position. Removed the SJ seat rails, made some modifications to the Sani Original rails and repaired them, works much better now.

    Started with the Passenger side mounting brackets.. (no pics)

    - Seat belts has been fitted. Had to make some modifications to the Seatclip mounts. The Gv seat belts for some reason didn't work anymore and I replaced them with Rear Jimny Belts and seat clips. ( Pieter at Zook Spares was ever so helpfull in sorting me out).


    Parts Update :

    - Manage to get a Serpentine Crankshaft Pulley from Cote88 (Chris) for the Powersteering. have some additional work to do before building the PS pump bracket.
    He also gave me some very good advise and showed me around his shop on projects with similar intentions as mine that has been completed. (No Pics)


    Stay tuned for the next update :-)
