hey guys sorry for the snails pace of replying and updating. Got busy with other things.. But finally went and checked out the gypsy. Paint is finally done. Looks good so far. Lets see next 2 days will be crucial. The best bits are going to start tomorrow onwards!

thanks. I actually update these posts from my phone. I dont get to see the pics when i upload let alone see if they're straight. And i've not come across any posts where the posting pictures rules are stated..this is the first time i got to know about this issue. Next time i'll be more careful. Sorry.

Nice choice of color, looking good. But I notice an area where paint is rough

Be careful. That's and area which is prone to rusting as there are 2 layers of metal which are exposed to the elements. Also as this is covered by the plastic cladding it does not dry off quickly hence the tendency to rust. Suggest you check it carefully for rust again.

Chargerman,

That's a dashing colour. As SirAlec suggested good set of tyres, preferably AT/R of 215 75 R 15 will give macho look

Looking good! Are you planning on changing the tires? Any fog lamps or other stuff planned?

The Gypsy looks amazing man. A very nice choice of paint and a very good job done by the painters. "A complete Package".
