Thanks for the close-ups Anil, the Recardo seats look nice. Probably, I'll also put them once I have some cash, but before that, I intend to invest in racing kamanis. Your vehicle looks really nice

By the way, I also restored my gypsy recently, do check out my thread

How much did you get the recaros for?
How is the comfort part compared to regular seats?

Finally the roll bars are installed, plz excuses for the boxy design but the idea was to have the same dimensions & design as of the B pillar of the vehicle. The same roll bars not only act as a protection cage for the rear seats but aslo as the frame for the soft top.

Hi Anil, interesting design for the roll cage - I myself was thinking aobut doing some thing similar, but I didn't know what it'd look like!

Can you please post a couple of photos, of the gypsy's side profile?

Thanks..

The gypsy has come out really well. Last time i saw it, the roll cage was not ready. Now, it all mature and ready to rule. But, i got one suggestion. It would look better if the door handles and the mirrors are black.

Thanks Miki, Imran & Tharakan,

First of all special thanks to Tharakan for your visit, it was a pleasure to have met you while the job was in progress. Here are the close ups & side view of the roll cage.. The rear seats are dual folding too, it can be retracted completely to create the extra cargo space.

Yes the roll cage is connected with the B pillar by a bolted joint, the recaros are excellent. It gives you all the proper support & comfort any kind of terrains / inclinations, feels like u r been holded on the seats from all the sides. I sourced it from Dubai and it cost Rs - 22K.

Default Finally this is my Gypsy.

Here is my gypsy with all its shine & glory, since my vacation is getting finished and no more time to spent at workshops i am putting a full stop to the works. The soft top and the rear flat bed cover is ready and can get installed at any time.

I have some plans for engine upgrades, the details will be updates soon with pics, need your suggestion & advices on the same.

Really sweet ride. The finished product looks great. Which vehicle do the rear seats originally belong to?

The rear seats comes from the SWB Toyota Rav4 (ACA20), these are the only one i found with risght size for Gypsy. It fits perfectly with the rear (1200 MM) right height, and offer real comfortable ride to the occupants.

I will have a flat back tyoe soft top only till the rear roll bar, the rear bottom end will be attached to the flat bed cover. Also it will be a 2 piece one which allows partial remove of front protion or rear portion seperate or complete.
