Somen - The jeep looks [FONT=Tms Rmn]unbelievable[/FONT]!! very good choice of colour.

The work carried out is just too clean. Mandeep has a very good eye for detail. Got the seats and tyres yet?

Cheers

Soumen, the jeep is turning into a beauty. Eagerly waiting to see the final product. With Mandeep's eye for detail, it sure will be one hell of a jeep.

Mandeep, please lay your magic touch on my Jeep as well. Starting with the tail light bracket. I also need to cone shaped indicators that are fixed below the headlights... cant seem to find them anywhere.

Thanks everyone. The bodywork has indeed come quite clean. Ankit, we have procured the seats and installed already. Tyres and rims are yet to be bought. We plan to do this at the last when everything else is complete and i get some cash ready!

Hey Somen. Can we see some pics of the new seats? What seats are you using, i.e. which vehicle? Is it waterproof? I wanted to get better seats for my gypsy as the orignal seats are not very comfortable (bit more thigh support and back suport would be nice). how much did you pay for the seats?

cheers
Ankit

Hi Ankit,
We have picked up Innova seats for the jeep. These seem to be pretty good with adequate thigh and back support. It came with rexine waterproof cover. These particular pair was in quite good condition, so had to pay a premium, around 7K! Will post some pics very soon. However the seats are wide and you need to check whether these can be fitted in the gypsy without disturbing the ergonomics.
The mayapuri people did really a horrible job in fixing up the seat mounts even after repeated instructions from Mandeep! Man no matter what you tell them, they will produce the quality they use to do normally! Same also goes for the electrical fittings. These are being redone now.
-regards,

Thanks buddy, i have already mentioned whose idea it was to go for this colour

Here are few more pics just after finishing the initial paint process

As I told earlier, the jeep was towed to mayapuri for further work. Thats mandeep's blue monster towing its gray counterpart with a fixed tow. The advantage is nobody needs to seat on the rear vehicle. I requested him not to drive too fast as he earlier towed a GPW all the way from Delhi to Jaipur with speed around 90 in the highway ! Also in the pics, our all-time reliable Alto peeping from the back

Love the colour, does the roll bar on this just look higher than the one on your blue jeep?
