Absolutely, he is totally dedicated.He is his only competition!

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.
I spoke to allan regarding the axle wrap issue.He tried explaining to me but i didnt get it.So the 'man' himself will do a post on this issue.

I have decided on the color and the jeep is going in for painting today.The ac piping and softtop are also being done side by side.The jeep should be done by the end of the month just when my exams get over.

Can't wait to see how Allan's Soft Top comes out as I'm planning to change the stock look this winter, M just adding roll bars, new top, tires, fog lamps and a new paint job.

probably not too important given everything else is awesome...but how does the A/C keep up with a soft top? isn't it rendered fairly useless?

It should keep up pretty well provided the softtop is well insulated and it does not let much air out.I'm sure Allan will do a good job on the softtop.Waiting eagerly !!

Oh great that's nice to hear.But i absolutely hate soft tops in any form,I hate it even in super cars. that's why Allan is doing the roll cage and soft top in such a way that its easily removable and i can get the stock look of the vehicle when i want.

Anyways where u doing your modifications?

@Arjun
I'm getting it done here in shillong itself , I want to make it easily foldable and unfoldable too. Its a must for shillong weather and its my daily drive. I love the way they make it in the wrangler. I might go in that style. You dont actually need to remove anything, just fold the top and the rods.

I thought of that too.But even when it folds it's still going to be on the jeep.I want that complete stock look of the jeep a little particular about it.
In chennai You might need the soft top for the opposite reason of yours , the heat.It rains heavy just for this one month .
Anyways all the best for your project too.

for me it will definitely be the silver/blue defender.
The first would only be the Yellow defender its one of the most beautifully done up vehicles that i have seen till date right down to every detail if you see it you will belive it. Allan you will know what i am talking about. But too bad i cant do that.

Is it really even better than the blue and silver one ? And wicked wheels what is that particular detail your talking about ?

Is this the maroon and gold Defender you talking about the SWB Version or the camel trophy one(never actually seen the camel trophy one) ?
