Those seats seem to be really good and comfortable. And also new. Like others, I would also like to know from which vehicle do they belong? And from where did you source them incl cost?

Cheers,

Thanks guys, I don't know which is the donor vehicle for the front seats, found them with a dealer and bought it straight away as the size found to be ok. It looked as never used before, there was no signs of any wear & tear, even the mounting bracket didn't had any signs of being bolted before and the fabric looked almost new & fresh. The rear seats are from toyota rav4 2011 model.

Yes the seats are extremly comfortable and this is the most i am looking for. The driver seat have 4 way position adjusting which offer very felxible seating positions for fatigue free driving during long journeys.

Looks nice. Can you disclose the costs for those seats. Does Rav4 seats are double folding type like innova rear seats?

The front seats are succefuully mounted on the vehicle, the driver side was easy to mount as there was already a foundation for the original seat. It only required some new holes and minor adjustments. Where as the passenger side required new foundation to be fabricated similar to the other side. Following pictures will explain it better -

Driver seat mounted -

New foundations fabricated for the passenger seats - this is placed 2 inches ahead of the one for driver seats inorder to provide enouigh space when fully forward retracted & folded to allow easy entry & exit to the forward facing rear seats.

The trouble with moving to bigger seats for the Gypsy is that it makes things even more cramped in the cabin. I got mine switched to Honda City seats and at least the passenger seat leaves no space between the B pillar and the side of the seat, making seat belt usage quite difficult. The driver seat has fared much better.

But it is worth the trouble as it has already made a world of a difference to the ride quality in the vehicle. Do post more pics once it is all done, maybe I can pick up a thing or two from your installation. Thanks!

Hi Kumaran, i checked the price with one of the off road specialist dealer here and the price quoted is AED 275/- (INR 3500/-) for branded ones. He also told that it is available is china mart for much lesser price and with almost comparable quality.

Hi Anil,

That's Great man , thanks a lot for straining yourself to get details about the Hi-Lift, it would be much useful if you can post the details of the "off road specialist dealer" you have mentioned .

Please get info about the NRG Steering Locks and also advise me if its possible to fit one in MM CLASSIC.

Hi Kumaran, the offroad specialist i mentioned is Robbies Motorsport in Dubai, you can find their contact details here - ROBBIES MOTOSPORT - Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Regarding the steering wheel you mentioned i was not able to get any info & is not sure about the possibility of getting it fitted in MM. For my Gypsy i sourced a Momo steering wheel with the hub matching for suzuki, fortunately most of the suzuki vehicles got the same steering wheel hub.

Thanks Sreehari, for the new Gypsy we are going to maintain the same white color, yes i already sourced alloys & BFG tyres for this, shall update more pictures as time allows.

The painting & fitting job is almost completed except the final polishing, there are not many pictures for the work in progress, the workshop guys (Hercules Automobiles) have paid a lot of attention to ensure the quality of the work, and it is reflected in the end results. The overall paint quality is excellent, let the pictures speak further even though it is not very clear ones and doesnt shows the true quality

The gypsy has really come out good. You are lucky to get the original koyo steering box. Is the vehicle in the MASS opposite to the Excel glass factory?
