desigNation,
Congratulations on your new pocession. Bolero camper is a good vehicle and capable 4wd for its size. As others have said, the grill is messed up. Please replace the original. If you want it to continue looking weird, replace it with rabbit tooth grill of new M&M's

If you are regular to offroading then consider chopping rear section to reduce overhang.

desigNation,

Nice choice for your kind of terrain and requirement, the extra carry space for your farm needs, the comfort and cush. ride in the camper will be better than your MM540.
BUT.......!

Also, make some changes for the plain Jane front end of your camper.
Happy Ride.

The mesh grille looks good in flesh. The finish does look weird in the pictures, probably due to the light conditions.

Congrats. Why the Peugeot logos on the MM540? How did you manage to register the Camper as a private vehicle. When I checked with the dealer, I was told that I will need to register it as a goods vehicle (yellow plate)

the vtec guy-the rear fog lamps does give a wider light up and yes like you said it does hit the hood a bit,i am putting a roll bar ,but it would be in the same situation because,the height of the roll bar is going to be the same as the pipe where i have already mounted the lights now.
gto-thanx for the comments,bolero 4x4,tata xenon,mahindra getaway was beyond my budget,the camper on road without a/c an power steering was rs.5,30,000/-ac and power steering caused another 80000/-.

Officially congrats once more for going such a long way to get the vehicle you wanted. The modifications are quite tastefully done, personally i do like the front mesh design over the conventional design of bolero. Get a good bull bar made with couple of good lights and you are all set to go. And for such kind of a price the camper is indeed pure VFM.

This invader was also done up with a new grill.

I am not posting pictures of the rear, it is horrendous. The front looks good though. Will post pictures of the rear in the weird and wacky jobs thread if my friend acts up.
