Default My Gypsy with New looks and Mods.

some of you know that i bought a gypsy last year and rebuilted the car. after a year thought of going for a new look and some mods..

will list my mods below which i did in the span of last six months.. made few mistake will highlight those as well.

1) I blew the engine so had to rebuilt it.. ( ithink biggest mistake, i should have gone for swap with esteem or baleno eng.)

2) got a set of new suspensions.. very cheap OEM one, it made the ride smoother.

3) got a break booster of esteem, breaking is amazing now.

4) got a bullbar at back. looks killer.

5) a jerry can which looks kool.

6) new leather hood is nice and a tight fit.

7) interiors is comepletly black..

now bored of typing let the pics take it over.( pics taken at night, doesnt make justice, will try to get the pics in daylight and post it till the time let your comments coming in)

pdev, need pictures taken in daylight pleaseeeeeee -- to appreciate the mods better.
Can hardly see the bullbar.

- Which is the 'leather hood'. is it just covering the cabin roof or is it cabin + roll down also?

- Have you modded the exhaust also? can see a huge tail pipe towards the side of the gypsy in one of the pics..

It might just break you into if you could stand in front of it.

2) got a set of new suspensions.. very cheap OEM one, it made the ride smoother.

Looks good as far as I can see... but need to see more dude! Daylight pics please!

Regd the engine, does anyone know of a diesel engine being transplanted into a Gypsy? Wonder how a 1.3 Multijet would do in it

Yes, Daylight pics would be better as everyone and you suggest. Its not so clear in the night.

Also post some Pics of the new interiors you have mentioned. I see the T-BHP stickers. Self made I assume.

Cute. It looks awesome in that White.
Btw, the last 2 pictures seems like you already started the off-raoding with the front 2 wheels in Platform?

I suppose availability is a major problem for that engine.

Wonderful work traitor! Would like a drive in it next time around!

P.S. Head Lights/Fog Lights thodi kam hain! 4-6 aur fit karwale!!

I don't see why. It's just the Esteem engine, though the last lot came with DCI, as opposed to distributors.

A few difference(s), i believe.
I know for sure the camshaft is different.
Someone who's transplanted a G13B to a MG410 could highlight.
