Since the car might be used in the hilly regions a lot and the cases of it encountering fog is very high am planning to get filters for my roo and lightforce lights.


Planning to get blue filters for the lightforce and yellow for the roo lights.
Posting pics of the same. This will be in addition to the clear filters which will be there when inside the city.

Hurry up. Cant wait to see the orange monster any longer.
If you are ok with it could you please post the step by step cost of the entire process including getting the jeep,accessories and the modifications.
Even a rough estimate would do.

PS: Why have most of the things (bonnet,lights,winch,etc) been fitted before the paint job???

ankit from the looks of what i can see, mandeep's jeep is sporting a gypsy windscreen or atleast the glass, not bad i say, but not my taste.
secondly with arjuns car, we are going in for a complete soft top including windows in cloth, so with the tapered windscreen aligning the windows from the tapered windscreen to the straight roll cage becomes a problem and moreover would play against the looks of the vehicle.
i hope you understand what im trying to put forward.

vehicle as of now is nearly ready for painting,
other on going jobs are the soft top and final completion of a/c pipelines


cheers

regards

Allan

Default M&M SPOA, Axle Wrap & Traction Bar

Allan - Question to you.

What do you do to a M&M 550 to avoid axle wrap?

More here (Gypsy on Steroids -- The SPoA Project. EDIT: Stage-2 Started now..)

Are you custom fabricating a Traction bar?
Can you share the points one needs to alter to make a M&M SPOA?

Some tips maybe useful. Please don't consider this as me poking into your business secrets. Its just some expert tips from the 'man' himself.

------------
Arjun, In case you read this sooner, please ask Allan how is he addressing the Axle wrap issue I know you call him 5-6 times a day.

The normal clear filters may not be very useful when the vehicle encounters thick fog in the hilly regions.

Hella lights are good am using 2 hella's at the rear of the jeep but hella is no match for the lightforce lights or roo lights.Lightforce are totally submersible and they are bullet proof not kidding here .watch the videos over youtube.these are the ones used in the dakar rally and stuff.google lightforce and have a look.
