I'm really sorry, i could not upload the pics as attachments as they were too large in size and it was not allowing me to add to attachments. Thats the reason i had to have them on the redirects. I will try to reduce the size and post them to attachments.

Where have you placed the speakers?

Also, are you planning to get it re-registered in Karnataka? Finding invoice for a 1968 Willys is no joke.

Hi Sharat, i have placed the speakers (though they are the cheap ones, but quite audiable, the ones from SP Road) right under the dash fixed on the side inner walls.

Oh yes, i know, i was initially trying with Jammy itself and was also chcking with my contacts also. Finally i was able source it through a broker (but at a cost). Now the Karnataka road tax is paid and transfer of ownership is awaited to be complete.

it was a mighty huge obstacle that eventually I got over, now that just the tranfer is awaited, i can breathe a sigh of releaf.

But still keeping my fingers crossed till all the paper work is complete.

Thanks to Tejas@perioimpl

This is a A/c type fan for a Maruthi van, i guess. Please go through the thread by Tejas@perioimpl. will give you more insight.

i got this idea from Tejas@perioimpl from his thread and got it installed. i have not installed an A/c, its just a blower fan, gives a decent breeze at signals or when halted in traffic.

Hey! I'm glad someone likes my idea! It is a lifesaver at signals!

Nice jeep btw. Can you post pics of the speaker placement? That's next on my list.

Hey Buddy ,

Dont worry it would just take about 4 to 6 Months time only . Yes not wrongly written 4 to 6 months 16 to 24 weeks .

I've tried it and finally with my relative being an RTO i was able to complete it in 4 months time with huge money for the other state RTO.

So, i'm trying to find someone who has the cast to bend the 2 1/2 " pipe for a good finish. The same person does it in a 2" pipe and bends it with the cast but dos not have for the 2 1/2 ", but I want a thicker one that will blend with my jeep.

Request the guru's out here to give your suggestons or help me with contacts you are aware of for this activity.

Thanks in advance.
Raghu, what cast are you taking about for roll cage fabrication? i believe roll over bar is bent through a pipe bending machine mounted on a fixture, correct me if i am wrong

Yes. The pipes have to be bent using a pipe bending machine. I'm currently exploring the possibility of installing a six point roll over cage in my classic. I've done extensive research on this. I'll post more details on the roll over cage for jeeps thread.

Edit: raghu, a good exhaust guy should have a pipe bending machine.

Raghu,

That is one beautiful jeep you have there!

I reckon you have a well secured spot for parking. And do not ever forget to remove the audio head unit.

And with the road tax paid, I am sure the KA police will be more than happy to wave you off. Those guys actually love and appreciate the people who have paid the road tax for out of state vehicle, seriously!

@Tejas can you post photos of what kind of roll over bars you want or is the design still under conception?

Still under design. I'm still researching the minimum gauge of pipe i can use. Otherwise the cage itself is getting heavy and is raising the center of gravity. I should have something ready on paper by the end of next week.
