That's a fine looking jeep you got there. Maybe it's just me, but doesn't that star look out of place on the LH quarter panel? Just a thought.

Amazing outcome buddy. The jeep looks great. I can see the 4WD levers, sorry i didnt know they were removed. I particularly love the rear lights.

May i suggest you change the following;

1) The Mahindra steering wheel with a three spoke one. It is difficult to find but will look like a million bucks. This steering does not suit here.

2) Get the original rims. They are available easily. These look horrid.

Great looks!!

One word its SUPERB looking one. Love the color. It is a Military green? has both shades of Green & Black. Love the top canvas as well.

As rightly said by V-16, change the steering wheel.

Default hi

Thank you all for the feedback.
V-16 rightly said.I have the original 3 spike stearing wheel with me,but i have problem replacing the Mahindra wheel with this 3 spike one.When i checked with my mechanic in Coorg he said its not possible as the milling is not matching with the current stearing rod.He suggested to replace the stearing rod with modified milling which fits the 3 spike wheel. Need to get my Jeep here in Bangalore and find a workshop who is good in these modification.
Any suggestion please?

Regards,
Karumbaiah

Hi Karumbiah,

1) The Top & Bottom hose should be easily available in Bangalore.

2) Go for the Autopal Ambassador Dome and use Halogen Bulbs with Head Light Relay.

3) Front Conical or Flat or Cylindrical, Rear very common CYCO make, used in some Trucks.

4) Check your Alternator/Dynamo, if Dynamo please upgrade to a MM540 style Alternator.

Regards,

Arka

PS - If you don't get the hose's I'll send them from Chennai.
