Gurus - please advise if the fan shroud needs to cover the fan ? Thanks !
It has to be covered, atleast some portion of it. Get this attended, it help in better cooling performance of the system.

I'd gone to pick up my Jeep at Milestone after the body rebuild earlier this year (Thread link (Mahindra Classic 2.5L : In Tight New Clothes!)) and, as the driver dropped me to the gate, I saw this white Jeep inside. Thought to myself "Hmmm, tastefully done up Jeep".

Met with the Milestone gang, completed all the delivery paperwork and was giving my Jeep a final once-over before driving off. Suddenly, I hear someone call my name. Looked around, don't see a familiar face. Then, this dude walks up and says "Hi, I'm Manu...your classmate from Don Bosco". HOLY COW! We meet after nearly 20 years in, of all the places, a Jeep workshop. What are the chances??!! Best part is, we're meeting after 2 decades. Yet, after 1 or 2 questions (barely) on each other's lives, we start checking out each other's Jeeps

Manu, you have a beautiful Jeep. Now, don't modify her anymore (I know what you've been thinking). Reliability should be your top priority. BTW, did you finally put the speaker boom box to use?

The hard top is fabricated in light steel. It's not detachable and we decided to go for fit windows in the rear, mounted flush with the body-line - very similar to the rear window of a hatchback (glued to the body).

I know Mr. Rodricks as he is the guy who modifies 4-wheelers for physically challenged peoples. Never knew he is in JEEP stuff too. I knw he operates from a place in Bhoiwada...is this Milestone garage??
Yup - as Gogi bhai said that's the one. He's an avid Jeeper.

A beautiful sight - in her element. Mouth watering indeed - I can imagine it smeared in mud, and grunting for more.

Thanks Rush ! - no more mods
The boom box is a queued project - will be putting it to use once the rains cease.

Gotcha - I haven't been able to find a shroud of the right size as yet - thinking I'll get it fabricated.

Unless it is engineered well I suspect it will last the flex forces acting on it.
A concern I share too. The windows are toughened glazed glass mounted on some kind of rubbery glue.

Lugnut,

Thats a handsome looking Jeep. Surely, coming out of Mr. Ferdi's place it also should be a performer like GTO's, Classis.

All the best and man Happy and Safe miles.
