Real neat work Sachin! Looks as good as new! Hey, what about the holes near the front left side indicators? I guess they were used by The Airforce to put a flag!?? Also, the dash and seats are old?? Restored well, I should say! Please share the costs incurred and the details of the work done! How does it run? Engine and transmission works fine?

PS: The soft top looks a little odd. Not fit correctly??

Hi Sachin, this is an amazing turn around job that you have done on this Gypsy. I am sure not many people can recognize that it is the same blue unserviceable gypsy. This looks like fresh from showroom.

GREAT job.!!!

Sachin's house has become a 4x4 museum in a region where people hardly know about 4x4 vehicles. He has got a CJ340, MM550 and now a Gypsy parked at his house. Lot of youngsters come and gawk, take their photographs with the vehicles.

How did you manage to get a GA-02 registration number? This is a discontinued series from Goa.

Indeed a tale of Rags to the riches! The Gypsy did find a right owner, I couldn't have even come close to getting it this good this soon. Mods, I think we should change the title of the thread to something Sachin would call his new baby.
