    When I went to ceramic coat it, my friend who was going to help me wasn't as happy with it as I was, so he made some touch ups:

    Finally made some mud flaps.

    If I were to do it again, would do them a little longer. But, totally legal!

    Welp! Time for some overdue scheduled maintenance. Right now it is at approximately 99,000km and still had the factory timing belt (which is 20 years old at this point).

    Yesterday new timing belt, idler pulley, tensioner pulley, hydraulic tensioner, cam and crank seals, water pump, accessory belts, and radiator hoses went on. As well as the revised crank bolt (old ones have an issue with backing out).

    Didn't get many pictures, but I will feel a lot more comfortable driving it around now. I looked at the belt when I first got it and it still seemed pretty good, but nice to have peace of mind.

    And, first actual "issue" since ownership! (I have put on approximately 22,000km).

    Power steering pump seal is starting to leak, have a new rebuilt kit on the way (30$).

    100,000 km update. Still has been rock solid.

    I never doubt Pajeroes! I had 2,5L and 2,8L + iO. Enjoyed those diesels so much!
    With proper care they will go 500.000 + km easy! Enjoy and good luck!

    Few things happened this weekend.
    Remember all that flushing of the rad I did? Well like 11-12 flushes and it was still pretty rusty. Lent the truck to my buddy for the weekend and he hooked it up to the rad cleaning machine at work.
    The aftermath is some squeaky clean coolant!

    He also hooked it up to the intake service machine to clean up the likely caked up valves.

    Honestly I have noticed the truck runs smoother and the throttle is more responsive.
    With all that done, I would say that the maintenance is entirely up to date!
    Please enjoy this picture of how glossy the Sonax is still holding up:
