Sorry for the off topic. This may help designing hardtop /body for MM5x0 and Thar.

Its really coming out great !!! Are you also planning to go for the 33' rubbers or anything bigger or lesser? Alloys or fused rims?

Sumesh it could be great, if you also update us with the engineering works under the chassis also. The pics are great.

HEy SUMESHM , Nice project . looks monstrous , waiting for the final outcome . I have few questions which needs clarification
1 . Why choose Armada grand & shorten it when MM5x0 is available
2 . NGT530 is a Bolero 4WD GB right , if yes is it a direct fit to the scorpio 2.6 engine.
Please don mind about the questions

sumesh it's a heinous crime to call this an Armada Grand anymore . Looks cool man and considering the fact that you have been able to source Scorpio non-CRDe engine you sure have a monster in the making. Am glued to this thread.

Sumesh - Are you planning to change the windscreen? The top part of the frame looks be too thin to hold on to the windscreen.
Keep the pics coming, looks great!!!
