Hey,

Thanks for all the good words and wishes. I brought the Jeep to Gurgaon last night. Few teething problems but nothing major.

Here's a pic showing before and after. Final pics I shall update shortly as I did not have time to click the same.

Jyobeb - What you have mentioned is true, it is a Safari's condensor's fan. As for the placement is concerned I think what you mentioned is also true. I shall clarify with my Uncle. Though the vehicle did not over heat I now feel that the fan should be installed in front of the radiator. Frankly I have got the Jeep without much testing as I wanted to do the same myself. Will drive it for some time and see what all needs to be looked into. Thanks for your suggestion.

@ Sali - The brake lights are not imported, infact they come on trailer trucks mounted above the cabin at the rear. The fender lights are fabricated at the garage itself.

@ Harjeev / Ankit - Thanks guys, We shall surely test the vehicle in the upcoming OTR. Cant push it too much as my Uncle said not to exert the vehicle until i've logged in a 1000 kms.

Regards,

Randeep

Randeep,
Great job! Looks so good. Why is there so long gap between the engine and the radiator? Why did you extend the chassis front part when you had so much of gap?

Also please post pics of your power steering setup.

Randeep lack of time is no excuse yar, just takes few seconds to click pics:-))) Yours has been one of the most most awaited restoration here

Hi Vinod,

The gap between the radiator and engine is the result of extending the chassis. The chassis was extended so that the jeep would have a longer bonnet as its on the same lines of the Jeep Wrangler. The gap emerges because of the front tyres and grill being moved up onto the extended chassis whereas the engine stays as it were.

Will post detailed pics soon.

Cheers !!!!!!!

It came out very well Randeep, usually i am a big fan of Stock Jeeps, but this surely is an exception. A "No nonsense" Jeep. Congrats and get her dirty ASAP after your Run in. Pls be patient and do not participate in an OTR before 1000 KMs, though your jeep may be running slow on OTRs but But 4L means lots of engine RPM. I know your hands are itching but just wait for some more time.

All the BEST and Happy Jeeping..

Thanks
