Dear friends here is the final version of my gypsy, almost everything is done except A/C, which is also on the way very soon, trying to source the original A/C components of samurai or jimny.

it looks very tastefully done. However, with a ST and large clear areas- will the aircon be effective?

Nice!

The compressor in my old gyp was the same one in the Maruti 1000 and was a Sanden 507.

In my old shape 1984 model 800 there was a Sanden 505 compressor. That vehicle was fully imported as per the parts all of which were original Suzuki.

All susequent 800's which came along in the old shape after indigenization as well as in the newer shape etc, had Sanden 507's as per my memory, as did the Maruti 1000's.

My first gyp which was the simple MG410 1988 model soft top , didnt have AC at all.

The one I am referring to above was my second one which was a 1995 MG410W and probably one of the later ones made with the 1000 cc engine, had the hard top and a retro fit AC. Worked very well. Good vehicle that old Gyp.

Thanks to all of you for the suggestions and appreciation.

Hi Madan, the driver cabin is having a removable metal top, which is fully heat insulated on top and 100% leak proof, the soft top extents over the rear cabin in the same way. I tested it many times with high pressure water and it is completely leak proof, even in the heavy monsoon in kerala we found it excellent with no water drippings inside. But with AC installation this is not enough, the soft top will get further upgraded especially a double layer fabric for top area with thermal form in between for the heat insulation and a better lockable (sealable) rear opening. The transparent area and the black coloured material are jointed not by stiching, but by thermal pressing so that too is fully leak proof.

Thanks for the information Sir, my old gypsy (1994 MG410) was having a sanden compressor and super king evaporator & blower unit. The installation was not very satisfactory, especially the compressor mounting, location of the blower unit, and all the pipings, i was not very satisfied with the installation. More over it made the vehicle very underpowered when A/C switched on and caused over heating. So this time i will go for all OE fitemnt
which comes in suzuki samurai / jimny. I already found some here and attached are the pics for the same.

Dashboard on old model Suzuki Jimny (same as gypsy) with in housed evaporator,blower, A/C controls and ducts, all these fits neat & clean inside and it is a bolt on fitting to gypsy with out much modifications required and all the wirings, pipings etc are well concealed.

Compressor mounted with OE brackets above the powersteering pump bracket, my gypsy is now having excatly the same bracket and powersteering pump so the compressor can be mounted easily and neatly.

Yes even I had that superking ac and the switch was located on the right side near the steering column below the ignition key.
Very irritating it was.
Too many pipes and things all over the place, plus there used to be a condensation leak near the clutch and I used to get regular drips of cold water on my shoe!

Is the Esteem double pulley wheel the same diameter as the Gypsy? The Gypsy pulley is 134mm and weights roughly 1kg.

I dont like the lack of integration of stereo unit in the Gypsy dash and wont mind importing a Jimny dashboard too. Where can we get one?

Thanks
