Hey Krishna,
Looks really nice!
Regarding the shackle lift, did you also do some work on your front leaf springs?
Do you also have an extra leaf added to your springs?
If yes, how do you find the ride quality?
Cheers,
Deepak

No leaf's added. I had got all the leaf's re chambered few months ago.
No change in the ride quality.

Hey Krishna

Your Red Gypsy looks a heartthrob, buddy ! Love the colour. I just might go for it on my white MG410.

Where did you get your lamda hub for and how much did you pay for it ? Can you tell me if I can fit a Gypsy King hub on my Narrow track MG410 ?

Cheers

Thanks to SvSantosh.

The gypsy looks really awesome- the first question that comes to mind with so many lights - how did you do the electricals to handle it?

I never really used all the lights. The roof lights are best used when truck guys won't dip their lights :-)

Got rid of the chrome. This is how it looks now.

Got a new JBL GT-X333 installed. Music sounds good now.

Thanks,
Krishna

Great gypsy ,Krishna.If possible ,get the King Grille for your MG410.The Black wheels looks sinister.Slap on some Team BHP sticker onto your monster.Also ,any plans for 1.3L engine or 1.6L engine?
Do update.

I feel its waste of money making 410 look like 413, Rather I buy a king only.

Have plans for mpfi but spending around 70000rs is not worth I feel.

Am actually confused :-)

Hi you have a macho looking gypsy. Are you using a big dynamo for that many lights? If I may suggest remove the spring antenaa but keep the stock 410 looks. Please provide the brake up prices for shackels lifts and lambda.
If you are planning for gyspsy mpfi conversion it will cost only 30 to 35000 that is the 413 gengine with ecm and all harnessing.

Hi Krishna, your Gypsy is a real looker, the black alloys gel very well with the red beast.
