By the way, will the footware remain the same while it goes to paintbooth?

Hi Abhi,

Yeah I cant push much as the garage is owned by my Uncle therefore have to wait.

The old tires would be fitted when the Jeep goes into the paint booth. But is there any problem if the vehicle goes in with the new tires and rims??????? I told him to change it because I did not want my tires and rims to get paint on them.

Cheers !!!!!!!!

Randeep I wouldn't be quite sure with this and maybe others could clarify, I was thinking that doesnt heat harden the rubber????

I am not sure but its always better to check!!!

Hi Everyone,

I received a few pics from my cousin in Jaipur. He had visited the work shop last week and so clicked some pics of the Jeep before it went for paint.

Notice the redesigned windshield. It has been thinned, lowered and tapered inwards.

Cheers !!!!

Randeep

Thats a nice windshield modification Randeep, will make a lot of difference in the looks. BTW, do you have any pics of your isuzu gearbox levers? If so kindly post it, would like to see the shift pattern of the 4x4 lever.

I really admire your patience and what you are doing with the jeep, Randeep. Best of luck—am sure it is going to turn out to be quite a humdinger and head-turner...

Well Sep 30th is too far, The Jeep should be ready my end of this month. The first coat will be applied tomorrow after which the fittings will start.

@SSS Sir,

The colour that I have chosen is a mix of grey ang green. I was earlier going for a shade in maroon but then keeping in mind that the jeep's going to be used in offroading i changed the shade.

Yes Sir, I shall surely be coming for the 15th OTR.

Cheers!!!!!!

Hey buddy
You jeep is coming out great and I can surely say that it would be one of the most awaited and the best looking 4x4 around!!! And with the heart and shoes (read engine and tyres) you have installed in it I am sure that it would hunt and roar like a tiger!!!

Great work and I sure am getting jealous now

HA HA HA

What say that we plan a trip to Jaipur to escort the beast back to Delhi (military escort)

Are you game for that??? Should be fun!!!
