Dear DB sir,

Dear Rajith - "pin drop silent"! I like that, thanks. You have almost realized my dream vehicle in your capable hands. If you are saying that you have "violent power" now, wait till you do the driveline optimization. Then, your Thar will finally come close to becoming the next MH01V521. Do the brake updation also, because with the new driveline, it's going to become a blisteringly fast vehicle, production brakes will not be sufficient. All my best wishes are with you.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

^^: Wow thats nice to hear - Hope to see it in action in the OTR circuits too!

BTW: Can you put specifics of the driveline optimisation? Any change in FD or is it a switchable REMAP?

Grill temp -0.1 deg and all this at the cheapest quote i got in BLR, with all original brand new parts.
Hi Jaggu

Is your Gypsy a ST or a HT? What compressor did you get? I am planning to go for A/C in my ST Gypsy.

Sanden 505 which is the right fit for the engine, its a HT with cabin. Have added insulation for firewall and transmission tunnel. ST you will need insulation and ideally front half partition for efficient cooling. 507 the popular compressor will zap power, can cause over heating and what not.

Hi Rajith

Excellent workmanship! Congratulations!

Can this ST now be removed as easily as before to enjoy the experience topless?
What are the three square patches on the roof of driver cabin?
Is the metal frame in center line with handles part of original Thar or a customization this shop has done?
Does this guy do Gypsies? I could drive down there to get mine done similarly.

Thanks

1)OE ST can be removed, but rexin and thermocol are pasted.
2)Three squares are OE velcro holders with ST.
3)Metal frames are OE, handles are customised.
4)He does all soft tops.

Dear all - THIS THREAD IS ONE YEAR OLD. The first Thar CRDe AC was delivered by me from the NBS showroom in Chowpatty Mumbai exactly one year back, to be exact, on 15 March 2011. I wonder when the factory fitted AC Thar will hit the roads.

Dear Rajith - the top installation is very well done. Although I can assure you that there will be no water leakage, please ensure that moisture does not remain between the two materials. You may put some moisture absorbing additive similar to what we see in medicine bottles etc. By the way, I just love the rear antenna and the yellow sticker. I would have preferred a sleeker classic looking front bumper but it is a matter of personal choice. See if you can source and fit the original Wrangler tail lights. And - PLEASE REMOVE THE SISSY LOOKING WHEEL CAPS!

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Dear BD Sir,
Wrangle tail light is in my list, will get it.

I dont have wheel caps, but scorpio OE alloys.If you closely see the last 3 photos, its our 1st THAR done at same place.I forgot to take the snaps of mine while fixing & airtighting the rear flap, so pasted our 1st Thar photo done by same guy.Where you can see Steel rims with cap on spare wheel bracket,rear light grill,A RITZ stop light on top the spare wheel carrier,Inner handles at roof and offcourse a CROSS hanging on the rear view mirror, also no ABS stckr. It can be a spot the difference game !.

Thanks and noted reg the moisture absorption.

Rajith - Thanks for sharing the pics - the workmanship looks great. One quick question - The rear windows - on the side- have they been covered with the insulating material as well?

Dear DB - I have gone all along with your advice to get the Kit installed, as that was the correct way to do things - however that kit is not available anymore and there is still no sight of when the FF AC Thar will hit the road and not sure when an existing That customer can have the retro-fit of the new AC done - again - that should be the best way forward for existing Thar owners. I have already written to Mahindra - apart from one phone call that they will get back - nothing else has happened. I understand they might be waiting for the budget to appropriately price the new Thar.

Is there any way - that the new AC Kit be made available to existing Thar customers.

Yes, side windows are covered with thermocol and pasted with window size rexin on top of the thermocol, to have clean look from outside thru OE lamination. Now drives with side mirrors.
