The Gypsy is now almost at its final shape, the quality & finish was better then expected. For all those guys at hercules automobiles the job on Gypsy has become a passion rather than a routine repair job. Let the pictures speak further, still a lot more job is remaining like a detachable hard roof on the front, new roll cage, custom soft top, forward facing rear seats etc.

Anil, it has coming out really nicely. Which profile tyres are you running? Also, next time when you're clicking the photos, could you please post some from the inside with the new seats? Thanks!

That is a nice beast that you have got. The alloys look great. How about adding a couple of Hellas in the front? Could you mind sharing the cost of the modification and restoration?

She looks really beautiful Anil, many congratulations! I bought a Gypsy recently, MPFI King. Currently she's in stock condition and I am really confused as to what kind of modifications I should perform on my Gypsy. I was contemplating an ac, power steering and some modifications to the front seats too. Also, I wanted to get a roll-cage and half cabin. Any recommendations?

Gentle Giant, Congrats. MPFIs are hard to get nowadays. Power Steering is something not so recommended amongst the off roaders. AC is a must have. You can scout Kurla Chor Bazaar for some comfortable Front Seats like Innova, Manza or Tavera.

Thanks to all you fellow BHPian's for the feed backs and suggestion, the Gypsy is now at the final stage and has took out from the workshop for a few days to spin around. The vehicle is a real head turner and the perfomance was excellent, power steering was a amazing and totally changed the way it used to be driven.

The colour used is 'superior white' and paint & materials are from Standox, i am not sure about the numebr of coats, but it was done in order.

Before going to install the rear seats we decided to have a full length roof and not the 3/4th like the previous one. The plan in to have a removable flat metal top for the driver cabin and a covertible top for the rear area.

Let the pictures speak further -

Looks like its straight out of the showroom. Killer mag wheels. You should have opted fro 235 profile tyres. Would look menacing.
So is this going to be a HT one ?

Hi Anil,

Looks good. Why did you bolt the frame onto the body panel. The rear part has holes on the floor to mount the rods and you could have made a similar arrangement for the front rods as well. That would have provided more rigidity. When i had converted my Ht into ST, the rods were mounted on the body and were not too great in terms of strength and rigidity. Overall, the vehicle looks killer . Is the roof for the drivers cabin going to be a removable one / clip on one.

Thanks every one, i was too busy at work hence didnt got any time to update further, Gypsy lovers can never stop from upgrading and redefining a Gypsy, the customising options for Gypsy are unlimited i must say. So i also cannot say the works are now completed it will keep on going. For now please find the below photographs for the interior with both front seats installed. The seats are extremely comfortable and the driver seat has got 4 way position adjusting.
