Rmonie,

Great looking Gypsy there. You are building boosters to build speed for your rallying spirit?

@ Jeep: Yes the alloys were repainted to match the new paint job.
@vinayrathore: Yes all the add ons are metal but have been properly treated so I don't expect any problems. The short version looks great.
@narayan: will post topless shots in the next few days or so.
@kittigadu: Looks great in the short version but wanted the extra space for longer drives.
@josepeter: the headlights have been replaced. will update photos in some time.
@phamilyman: ICE?
@Walterdee: the rear seat height has been reduced. The headroom is not great but adequate. The rear seat is mostly used by my kids.
@Salikt: no idea. I will check & revert, though it is supposed to be a Momo ripoff.

Fantastic job done. The Gypsy looks have turned killer and looks a real mean machine.

Hey Guys,

One of the best looking Gypsy's I've ever seen. Should have been on the home page of the Team BHP site..

Rmonie, your gypsy is awsome. the fit and finish shows the prowess of the workshop where it was done. Kudos to you and the support staff for making the Gypsy truly the way it looks.
I also liked the addition of 6" heights in the rear.Colour compliments well!!
The tyres too look well planted.
Good ride friend. You actually inspire me too to look out for a gypsy now!!

hey dude really good job done but the only thing i wanna warn you about is your exhaust tip.. its facing straight out at back because of which nobody will be able to sit behind.. the exhaust smoke will directly enter the rear cabin.. i would recommend to change the exhaust tip direction towards side... rest all is kool.

the exhaust tip of my gypsy was directed sideways,
i thought that it was a mistake and made it straight at back .

& now i have the same problem.


only solution is to bend it side ways.

I think this is one of the best overhaul projects thats come out of the Autopsyche Stable! totally changed my perception about the gypsy and has influenced one of my friends to do something similar to his gypsy! I love the paintjob, and the new ragtop. Overall a very clean and well executed modification, nice work Arush and congrats rmonie!

hey there, great job with that gypsy, its lovely, but i guess you could do something more with that softop design... just the transparent bits could be designed like the samurai softop so that the square boxy bit looks designed and original. i am currently working on my gypsy too lets see how it comes out..
