Thanks Harjeev, not any extensive mods planned at the moment due to time restrictions. Also i am thinking of having a covered (flat cover) cargo area at the rear rather than leaving it open. If you have any suggestions or designs on that please help me with.

Miki, the soft top material on you vehilce is fabric or synthetic? Here i have seen the materila used on the wrangler which is fabric but fully water proof. ? How about the fabric type material used on plice jeeps, is that a good choice?

My black gypsy has got a glossy black body and a matt black hard top. The vehicle was repainted and matt black dosnt have any problem with cleaning.

The first thing in our list was the seats, we have decided to install original Recaro seats. We decided to alter the seat foundation than altering the platform. Fortunately the denter whom i got was a man of extra ordinary skills who can play with metal how ever we wanted.
