It’s been long I updated this tread, so here I go...

Pics of the Seats.

My Gypsy Rebuild Project-p1040472.jpg

I had ordered for Brake booster in Mass. Finally I got it installed. This is really worth the money spent. Brake is really very effective.

I even got the Wind Screen washer installed. New tank, motor, wiring.

Resetting of all 4 suspension plates was also done.

Coming next Snorkel installation…

Seats are dam neat man. Do they slide towards the front fully so that people can climb in from the front?

and which polish do you use on your dash as your dash looks very spic and span.

Desmosedici: They do slide towards the front fully(they have longer sliding channel's)

My Gypsy Rebuild Project-p1040472.jpg

The passenger seat has the knob(As show in the pic), this knob fold's and slides the seats together (only on passenger seat). Height adjustment is only in driver seat.

During fitting mech did not think about this rear seat access and he drilled hopes. After complete fitting he realised that he had to fit the sliding channels 10-11Cms towards the dash.(even though the seat slides, there is not much space for a adult to enter)

I dropped the plan of drilling another 4 holes in the body, as i dont have rear seat at all

Dash Polish: I shall let you know, I need to see which brand it is

This Gypsy is hard to miss even in your rear view mirror.

Spotted him instantly and let him come along to say hi.

This Gypsy looks even better in the metal.

How much for the Snorkel and from where?

Some more questions about the seats in my PM

Thanks. It was nice meeting you Wolf. Your baleno was looking really cool. I think my next car will be Baleno.

Snorkel is from RAISED AIR INTAKE / SNORKEL TOP NRC6920 Island 4x4 - Specialists in Land Rover and Range Rover Parts and accessories for all models. UK and worldwide mail order.


I have my Bro-in-law there, so asked him to get this for me. It was delivered to his address in UK in just 24Hrs. It costed 17.99 + local shipping charges.

I am yet to get my hands on it. His travel to India is getting delayed.

Dear all.

I am hunting for similar music system holder. I am not able to find this in Mysore/Bangalore. Please help.

My Gypsy Rebuild Project-maruti_gypsy_11.jpg

Pics from Starter's tread.

I can see the water entering the cabin, when i wash the vehicle or when its raining. Will closing the Air went's (near the bonnet) solve this problem?

Krishna Thanthri

Hey Krishna,
I shall check and PM you if i can find one.
This isn't specific to Gypsy. I'd seen similar holder in 800 too.
Any of these boxes should be usable.

You can definitely go ahead and seal the front vent.
But that need not be the only place from where the water might be entering in.
In my Gypsy, the water trickles from the roof, through the door crevice and collects in the foot well.
So, after covering the air vent, try sitting inside the car when it goes through a wash and you can hopefully trace the leak.
Cheers,
Deepak

Apart from the front vents, i was told to seal the joint where the windscreen folds with a tape. It seems during heavy rains the water enter through that gap and travels down to the footwell.

Every sharp turn results in your feet getting washed. I havent done it yet as monsoons are gone now but shall do it before next monsoon.

Oh man, I had this removed from my Gypsy and was lying unused. I think I threw it away few weeks back. Let me check again if it is there with me and you can have it.

Yes please let me know if you find one.

As far as i have noticed water is entering from that air vent only.
And i am planning to cover it using Tbhp sticker's. I have got "got bhp?/DRIVE SAFE" stickers so hoping it will fit perfeclty .

I have a rubber beeding which seals the gap between windscreen and body. Got this new during painting work.

Do check and let me know. I have got a wooden box custom made which is not good.
