A little sunday afternoon DIY yesterday. Bought a Maruti Van AC type fan (Rs.400) and installed it under the dash. The fan speed is adequate when at a standstill at a signal for example. It is comparable to speed 2 of my four speed OHC fan setting.

Dear Tejas,
This fan would basically just act like a blower, am i right? Or is it something different?
Cheers,
Deepak

Yes, it will act like a blower. The louvres are adjustable for direction in both axes.

That's an inclinometer / pitch & roll meter... a remnant from my Gypsy days. More of a cosmetic thing than an actual utility. I have a better app on my iphone for this which can be calibrated to sound an alarm at a preset angle.

Looking for front facing rear seats. Any suggestions which i can use?

Also, i didn't use the jeep for atleast a week. When i drove her yesterday, i found a lot of play in the clutch pedal all of a sudden. No issues with gear slotting, but just increase in play. Why did this happen? Any ideas? Should i leave it as it is or get it rectified?
The clutch cable is new and fitted just a month ago.

I have been breaking my head for the same reason. I have done a lot of thinking since the width of the tub is too narrow to fit GOOD bucket seats and still HAVE SPACE for ingress!!

Try the 800/Indica's seats since they are the NARROWEST in India. You need to fabricate a CUBE'ical metal frame to fix the bucket seats. Make sure the cube is as close as possible to the wheel-well and if possible have a inch of the seats go over the wheel-well, so that you can ensure good space in between the 2 seats.

Keep in mind the soft top all the while, since your head will foul BIG time and needs to slouch all the time. Let me know what you comeup with. I also tried the Innova Last row seats - but Damm - the Cx340's tub is too narrow for that!!

Or simply just go stock and fit the ones like I have. Its a bench yet can seat two.

As Santosh says your head is sure to touch the top, yet if you pull the cover up the problem is solved and they get a good view of the sky.
