All the Dabwalli jeeps do just this, buy the PS and pump from mayapuri to install in their hummer's illicit babies. The entire setup costs about Rs.6000 without the fabrication costs and labour(which ends up at Rs.8000). So far, i've never heard anything bad about it, but you never know, though i would say the reliability depends more on things like fabrication and fitting .

The power steering installation in Mayapuri should cost you about 8-9k. This is all inclusive.
A friend of mine has got it done on his mm550 and is using it for the past month. They work very well.


Some update on the jeep.
This pics I have attached are about 4-5 days old.
the current status of the work is that after the application of the body filler the putti was applied and the painter was rubbing it. This should be over by the tomorrow evening and then they will apply surfacer. This is what they call it. I dont know the english name for it.
Am again off to mayapuri tomorrow and will get latest pics.
I think that the jeep should take another week or so...

I think that the OTR you are talking about I was driving Shashank's 550.

How come you came only for 1 OTR and have been absent from all others???

Sick on the Manesar OTR, Viral infection with a change in seasons. Remember I used to live in a protected environment with no seasonal changes in Dubai for the last fifteen years.

As for the night OTR, I very much wanted to come, but was pre comitted on another off road trip.

Where is this village of Berhampur on Sohna road. Actually I live on the Sohna road itself in Gurgaon.

Hi Harjeev,

They call it right. It is called "Primer Surfacer" only. This basically prepares surface for the next coat and removes small abnormalities on the surface.

Great work !!! Keep it up

Nice to see the progress Harjeev. Have you already bought any new battery for y'r 550 by any chance? If so, then kindly share the brand and price.

Looks to be coming on good now and a painter/denter who takes a bit more pride in their work compared to the dodgy lime green finish before.

I was showing my dad the pictures you posted on this thread when you got your MM550 and he thought it looked in excellent condition compared to the state our MM550 was in when we got it.

I am sorry, I think that I mentioned worng in my earlier post.
It is not Bherampur but village Badshapur.
Here is the link on wikimapia
I do not have the full trail on GPS, but this is the place where we guys had dinner at the lake. The GPS co-ordinates are 2821'46.68"N 77 7'27.33"E

Once I get my own jeep I will map the whole trail on GPS, you see the GPS on y cell phone is very power hungry, so I need the car charger while doing OTR. I have a GPS trail of another track though. It is in .KML format.

@spark
Anytime Mate

@ricky
Thanks Tarkesh,
I talked to the painter yesterday, they are now applying the putti again after the surfacer and then will do the rubbing and then again apply the surfacer, before they start painting.

@Pdev29
Yaar my 550 is now no longer in the same garage where the rubicon was been doneup. Further the workshop is 120 kms to & fro from my house so I will not be able to go there, just for for taking pics. Sorry for that!!!

@kandisa
I had bought Bosch battery for 4k. It was bought at the 1st workshop, (greater noida) for my 550 but will now be mounting it in the CJ3B and will buy someother for the 550.

@bigman
Thanks Satnam
Infact a guy from my office is standing on theor heads for getting the work done up. But still these guys take their own time, which now after 4 months I have become acustom too. But atleast here (mayapuri) the prices are much cheaper that I paid earlier. But the knowledge I am gaining, is helping me get my CJ3B done up at a much cheaper price.

Well Harjeev, Hope your Jeep delivery is going to happen soon.

I cannot believe the patience you guys have to get these brutes rebuilt.
