Wish I could get Innova seats for my Jeep too but its very difficult to here in my city and I'm low on Vit-M. Are you not getting rollbars done in phase II? It should add much more character to your Jeep. If you are interested check out my jeep pics in the jeep pics thread. RESPECT to you brother.
Cheers
Thanks Bro

Roll Bar plan is there in Phase 2. Also will come bull bar with 2 additional headlights and 2 fog lamps. And also the front facing seats (Still deciding on that. )

Yeh bro I did check out the pics of your jeep on the Pics thread earlier today. looks rocking man..congrats.

Cheers

Nishanth

Default Jeep Drive

Nishanth,
Your Jeep looks good, as earlier said, looks very neat and clean.
Now Questions:
Can you let us know how is the drive? How is engine and gearbox behaving? What about over all ride quality? Did you have any issues while registration?
I know these are too many questions, but I just can't wait to know.
Thanks in advance man,

I will give all i know once registration is done. But the right person to give the details would be Swastikviji as the jeep will be registred in his name first and later transferred to mine.

Great work on the jeep Nish!!! I saw it the day the jeep arrived in Bangalore and now after the restoration... I must say, your investments in terms of time, money and energy has paid of really well. One helluva looking jeep you have here... Waiting to drive it :-)

Default Well done!

Nishanth,

A very good soft top job there. Nice and simple interiors. Attention to detail is good. I am glad your Phase I has ended successfully! Well Done

p.s- The writing on the spare wheel cover is a little too loud. Try considering different font and a different jeep pic out there. :-)) Also please get your skid plate fixed ASAP!
