New bloke here! Just bought a '98 Pajero Mini from a dealer and am having it delivered all the way up here (South East Northumberland) from the South West having thrashed out a satisfactory deal to include the cost of getting it up the road.
It's the one that's recently been on eBay, in all over silver/grey with automatic gearbox and a mere 62,000Km/38,600 miles from new.
The car was only imported from dry, warm Southern Japan in November last year, so as soon as it arrives, my first task is to empty the contents of a gallon drum of Ensis V** into every wee nook & cranny to keep it as free from rust as it currently is.

It will be replacing my much-loved Toyota bB (bB is to Toyota Yaris as Cube is to Datsun Micra) as daily transport and its amazingly manoeuvrable nature, useful in town as well as out here in the coastal bit of the county, makes it a better daily proposition than the Toyota, plus the Pajero Mini's age qualifies it for inclusion on my "cherished car" key policy at an extra £40 per year.

My apologies for resurrecting this older thread but it was the first hit when I searched the board for a place to post an introduction.


** - For anyone who didn't know; Shell Ensis V is a range of rust treating and preventative products used in the fishing and offshore installation industries, one variety of this product is similar to Finnegans' Waxoyl, but is far better suited to applying in places where some surface rust may already be lurking, it can also be mixed with a spot of undersealant to create a protective covering that is self healing and very flexible but won't run all over the road when the heat of the coming summer reaches the car.
It's sold in most Chandleries as boat owners use it in steel hulls where it keeps the bilge water from getting to the metal.


John.

I thought I'd bump this up as I now have my '95 Junior ZRII back on the road. It was SORN for a year and a half with starting issues but I got round to having it looked at and it's now running fine.

For those interested in numbers of vehicles on the road, take a look at this site.

https://www.howmanyleft.co.uk/vehicle/mitsubishi_pajero_junior_swb_auto

Hopefully, the number of licensed cars will increase by one and SORN decrease when my registration is logged. You can use the site for other variants too.

For those hoping for a photo description for removing the dash (another thread) you'll be disappointed as I couldn't find remaining screws and left it to a professional.

My car came in from Japan in 2007 with about 50,000 miles on the clock. I have since done another 40,000 miles in the UK, Ireland, Spain and Belgium.

Modifications; replaced viscous radiator fan with electric one (which only really fires up in Spanish heat), replaced Japanese radio (Why? I don't know as I never listen to anything when I drive), tow bar added by Watling. I even put in a wooden bed for camping by removing the front passenger seat. There is an additional wake-up alarm as sheep like to scratch themselves on the tow hook at sunrise.

Wooden Bed Conversion

Someone ran into me in Ireland and the car was off the road for a couple of months in 2010 whilst the repair shop found another driver side front corner panel in Japan.

Road tax is cheap as it is too old for comprehensive insurance so I'll have to look after it well.

I don't off-road as I want this car to outlast me. I didn't bother with cars until I was 42 years old and am not a regular driver. Still, I love this car. Easy to drive. Usually, on a motorway, sitting close behind a lorry, draughting between the UK and Ireland.
