The head lights arrangement looks very beautiful.

Sreejeshmp, nice work on the jeep.

We can see a door frame for the front doors. How are you planning to do that?

Default Good work

Hi Sreejesh,

Its a really good makeover. I am building a CJ500D which will be up and running in next 15 to 20 days. I personally feel that due to it being a Medium wheel base vehicle. The roll-cage and bull bar design should be similar to Wrangler.
That would help in making it look little shorter. Also, CJ500d is one of the best chassis from what I heard, and with it being little longer, gives you the space to customize more.

I congratulate you on the new look given to the vehicle. It indeed looks great.

Will keep you informed about my work, when I am back to India (Hopefully next week)

Regds
Abhi

Congratulations on finishing it. Your jeep looks great. The combination of Matt grey and White wheels works well. Would like to see it with the soft top and the doors on.

Hi, sreej,
Complements first, jeep has head turn looks. Simple but, it stands out in a group.
I am ok with matt finish. Bit of white in roller bars, wheel disc will take care of contrast.
Comments: I suggest, use little bit of chrome here and there. May be mirrors or petrol cap or wind duct cover. Fix extra light little wider, so that light coverage area will be more.

Just a personal opinion, the wheel arch extensions make the wheels look inset, have you tried how it looks without those.

Thank you friends.

It looks good without the wheel arch extensions. but personally i likes them especially the one which came with original mahindra classic. Now i am planing to fit wheel spacer (1.75") for a better look.

Nice Looking jeep. I am planning to put a similar Door for my CJ. However, the fabricator told me that these are made in some part of Maharashtra, and are not very long lasting. Its good to see, you customized it yourself
