Hey Vaibhav,
Yes, Abheek's new bumper is mounted on the stock bumper mountings.
That is what he mentions in the Gypsy Pictures thread. (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/1739099-post576.html)
Cheers,

Yes, That's my Gypsy, currently at Performance Auto for some bodywork.
Thanks for appreciating Its far from perfect but does a great job at protecting the luggage from dust and water.

Abheek,
I presume that you have mounted the bumper on the outriggers circled in red in the attached pic. When you plan to install a winch in you Gypsy, I suggest that you add additional mounts on the bumper to affix it to the area circled in green. You will find that holes are already present there (marked with arrows).

Cheers

I fabricated it at a friend's factory in Shimla.
The space under the cover is for luggage, no extra spare wheel inside.
As for the registration, if you are buying from Mayapuri, the dealer who sells you the vehicle will get charge you extra money and get it registered too.

Vaibhav,

Is there any other material that can be used to make a tonneau and paint either body coloured or matt black. Also is it necessary to mount the spare wheel on the tonneau for it to work properly. Lastly, approx. cost for the modification.

Amar i would assume you can make a frame and use any sheet metal for the tonneau. spare wheel can be placed as per your convenience. i would think mounting it on top would require a support underneath.

OT:
@Kandisa: Won't the placement of the fogs affect the functioning of the headlights? When the headlights are switched on, doesn't the center part of the road be covered with a shadow of the fogs?

Hi Tejas, actually the current placement of the fog lamps will be changed and so are the lamps. Basically the stock headlights aren't that good now and we placed the fog lamps this way couple of weeks back for some highway journey through fog so that they complement the purpose of the headlight also. The headlights will be changed very soon and the fog lamps will be replaced by good pair of Hellas once i have some cash ready But no shadow problem whatsoever,may be because of the lack of proper light spread.

Negative. Nothing for the Endeavor. Currently this vendor is only importing parts for Gypsy and I was told in the near future for the Fortuner too.

Amar,
The current tonneau is a hollow square pipe frame covered with thin aluminium sheet. I only bought the hardware and aluminium sheet, rest was FOC , so can't really tell the exact cost. But I would say, under 10,000 Rs.

The spare tyre was mounted on the tonneau as I didn't want it on the tailgate. As for alternate materials, a mix of aluminium, fiberglass and polycarbonate sheets should work good.
In fact, I am itching to do another redesigned tonneau in fiberglass for my Gypsy. It would inherently have a better finish, weigh lesser and would overcome the shortcomings of the present one.

Cheers
