Weekend updates:

Another non working and non offroad weekend meant tinkering in the garage and also some work with the Pajero.

I loved the offroad mirrors that come with the New Jimny.

Looked around and found similar stuff on Banggood.com

Immediately purchased them and they got delivered 2 months later.

These mirrors help to show both the front and rear tyres. Immense help when navigating trails to avoid boulders, etc.

Mirror fits under the ORVM with a two sided tape. You can see both the front and rear tyres:

Different views:

The other side:

View from driver side of the passenger ORVM:

I was really worried about these falling off so I drilled and put two small screws to secure it to the mirror. After adjusting the perfect angle for me, I put araldite so they don't keep moving when the washer fellow does his job.

Though, honestly I'm worried that a biker may take away one of these during their slithery movements in the traffic because the height of most bike handles is just below the regular ORVM height.

Another project from last weekend sees completion:

The drawers were great but to access small items was difficult at times.

Thus I thought of installing Molle type panels on the rear windows.

Bought some mesh grills off amazon india:

The plan was to attach the top of the grill to the grab handle. For that need to make a bracket. Used an existing Aluminium strip and riveted it to hold on to the grill with a rubber insert.

Testing, works well:

For the lower part, smaller brackets and holes drilled into the plastic. Yea, some people don't like to do that but I have no qualms:

Removed everything, sanded and painted:

Attached stuff to it using velcro straps:

Will update as I populate the grill.

Does the mesh take heavy loads? And won't the items move around and rattle when on the move?

Could you also list out the items in the first-aid kit? Is it available for purchase in India?

The item are secured by velcro straps. They are snug and do not rattle.

The mesh should take moderately heavy loads though I'm not looking at putting heavy stuff up.

Mostly, tyre pressure gauges, pens, wading depth stick, portable stool, knife, folding shovel and things like that.

Most important is to clean the car after the drive. Borrowed a friend's Karcher K2 and it did the job splendidly:
