Thumbs up

Hello Nishanth,

I have followed you thread every day. I have to say this is one of the very neat restorations I have seem while retaining originality of the beast . Where did the restoration done ?

QQ: Was your Jeep parked near/infront of the SBI ATM/Shukra TVS on the Kanakpura road before restoration on a few occasions.

Thanks,

The restoration was done at SLV motors in banashankari 2nd stage , bangalore.

Yes you might have seen the jeep there in kanakapura road. the jeep at present is with my cousin and he lives nearby.

Cheers

Default Super coool Jeep!!

Nishant that a super coool jeep man! I have fallen in love with it. simple, rugged, macho feel. good selection of paint, well matched wheels and most impressive is the excellent top, seat and interior works. Even the manufacturer will feel shy. You must be enjoying her fully. Don't mind if I can input some ideas. How about a snorkel and a custome made bumper with some lamps it would add up to the machoness!

Thanks

Bala

At that time, I was thinking of contacting the owner and enquiring about the vehicle and also if he plans to sell it .. I would love to checkout the Jeep in flesh at your convenience.

Nishanth,

your jeep does look awesome and neat! Kudos to you for the eye for detail.

I really like the colour and the tyres offset. What alloys/rims are the tyres on?

This probably is one of the best restorations that i have seen till date. Congratulations to you and i salute your vision for making the machine what it is today. I have added your thread as my bookmark and will be following your footsteps when I get my own army jeep for restoration which currently I am searching. Thanks for a great exhaustive thread giving all the details.

Hi hgnishanth,

Congratulations, your Jeep has come out very well. More then anything, it has helped me solving one of my puzzle. I have got myself a Jeery can of 20 ltrs from Mayapuri but was not able to figure out the right place to Install it. Now looking at your picture, I know where i shall install mine. Sorry I shall copy your way.

One Question: Is the door able to handle the weight of Filled Jerry Can.

Wow Nishanth,

A very fast pace indeed to build the jeep from scratch. You've got a good support system in place.

Your Jeep was definitely a looker at this years TPC.

So did the total cross 4? AWESOME!! One of the best looking jeeps on the forum.

Please accept my apologies for bumping an old thread. Your Jeep is a looker! No two ways about it!
Please let me know whether there are any more Army disposal MM-550s available with the guy from whom you bought.

PS: I now know a place to restore a Jeep to its glory, in Bangalore!
