Good going on the mods.See if you can paint the CFL in Yellow, stands out with the green body color.

Do you mind me asking the price of the all the 4 CFL's?
How is the AC working & performance of the vehicle when switched on in city driving? Is it sluggish? again the same question? price? price? price?

If the Gypsy bug bites you, it wont allow you to sleep!!

Thanks for the colour suggestion,
CFL front@ Rs12500; Rear Rs 10000
A/c restoration Rs. 14000 (I had the Blower & Compressor, got it serviced,fitted the condensor, pipes electric fan of 18000 RPM 3 core huge brass radiator, there had to be modifications made in the clamps etc...)
A new A/c fittment would cost you around Rs 30000.
RPM @ idling speeds drops by 600 to 700 once the compressor is started. If you can get an ECU remap this would not be a problem but that too should set you back by 25 to 30 K

Hi Rossi,

Could you dig out the details mate

and with regards to the AC setup, did you face any overheating issues.

I am interested in the expenses incurred. If good enough then i can also contact your friend to mod mine.

Cheers.

I agree, i am on my way to get a lot of work done, but in phases, no moolah to get everything at one go

and i shall definitely get in touch with you once i get my servicing done (hopefully this week). Hope that your pal will be willing to discuss what i have in mind before starting off.

Default Re: My Gypsy King 2000, restoration & basic modifications

Dredging old discussions to check on how the CFLs did. I might go in for it this month or next. So wanted feedback about the front and rear ones reliability, considering I might be on roadtrips a few hundred kms away from home.

@Rossi, @khan_sulthan, @sawyer - Do let me know how it has been for you folks.

Folks who have been using the CFLs, can you please share some feedback. Is it a good idea to go for it or is it better to simply stick to the OE leafs.
