Thanks Jeeper, since my holiday is very short I have not planned much modifications other than detailing in stock condition. Still we will go for a customised interior & a 3/4th soft top.

Thanks Harjeeve Bhai, The seats cost us around Rs 22K including the shipping charges. We are going for 225/70 R15 since we have to postpon the power steering installation to a later time.

Our next task in agenda was Tyres & Alloy wheels, but unfortunately even after our extensive search we were not able to find a good one of our choice, all vendors asked for a minimum 3 weeks time to arrange it which might extent also. Since my holidays were finishing by that time i decided to go for alloywheel during my next holidays and got the new set of wheels installed on to the existing steel wheels.

With the new set of tyres installed the looks got improved & it could have even better with -ve offset alloy wheels too. We took it out for some beach drives.. it was the first offroad experience with gypsy.

Next task on our list was installing thermal form on the front fire wall & floor panel. We fixed 1 inch thermal form which excellently eliminates the sound & heat to a good extent, the floorpanels also got covered with black color rubber mats. This was also a part ot our project to have a complete black coloured interiors matching with seats, dashboard, & door trims.

SInce we don't want our gypsy's capabalities only limited to be a two seater and also not to let the rear seat passengers curse the ride quality, here goes the rear seats which are as comfortable as the front seats - other than getting in & out.....

Your ride has come out to be really neat Anil. Congratulations on the excellent job. I am curious to see a close up on the front seats as well. Did all four cost you 22k or just the front two?

Here are the pics for the interiors, the rear seats are also going to be in black color since i dont prefer any seat covers i am searching for some one who can do a skin fit or some fabric / vinyl spray paint.

Once the seats were in place it is the time to have the roll cage around, also we were planning to have a semi soft top and for which the roll cage is going to be the frame. Since we couldn't find the shimless steel pipes we decided to use 1.25 inch GI pipes for the roll cage and our denter (sheet metal worker) Mr. Sabu was pretty confident of turning them excatly to what was in my drawing......... To be honest all the credits of turning my ideas into reallity goes to him.
