Some one mentioned it was a bit quiet on here so I thought I'd show you what I've been up to lately.

Having emigrated to Australia almost a year ago, a chance meeting with some one on a 4wd club trip over here led to me working at Piranha Off Road. The guy who owns and runs Piranha (my boss) is a Suzuki nut! Hes got 20-30+ and has been off roading them for over 30 years!

Anyway for the past few months I've been building a Jimny for my boss.

This ladies and Gentlemen is Frankenzuke.

1999 Jimny which I've fitted modified Hi-lux axles underneath. Coils all round, ARB lockers front and rear, 37" tyres, 1.6 EFI Vitara engine.

Next I need to make a front winch bumper for it then the whole truck is getting resprayed.

I will try and dig out some more pics from the build. :-bd
