Default PICS : Gypsy with power steering + Airconditioner

Hi,

I am posting this on behalf of a good Friend (AS) , Many Noida/NCR bhpians will recognize the Gypsy, registrations details have been revealed with the owners consent.

Basic Vehicle - Gypsy 2001 MPFI

Mods
1 Power Steering
2 Air Conditioning
3 Side Mounted Exhaust
4 Esteem Front Seats
5 Zen Steering wheel
6 Drilled pedals
7 Custom Made front facing rear Seats
8 Hella Lights
9 100/90 front headlight bulbs alongwith relays
10 Rear mounted Neolite reverse light
11 Custom canvas top


While i appreciate all work done by the 4*4 gurus on thier vehicles , what makes this particular one stand out is the sheer attention to detail , the power steering and Airconditioning install especially look like factory fitted.

Would let the pictures do the talking !

Cool pics - i too have picked up a new Gypsy H/T and am looking at seat customization. Can you please share some more details on where were the seats sourced from?

AC looks factory fitted because it is factory fitted. Looks like the 80cc Subros with the OEM bracket and the viscous clutch radiator fan still in place. Cannot see the condensor in the pictures you provided.

Great looking Gypsy although I would want to know more about the rear seat headroom with the flat roof in place.

The AC is not factory fitted , yes it has a 80cc Subros , but all of this was fitted right in front of me a few years back. The parts however are all OEM . All the power steering and AC components have been sourced from MUL and abroad and fitted right here in Delhi. The rear seat headroom is okay (i am 6 feet tall ) u sit in a kind of "legs forward position " . will post some more pics tomm , have to click them

Cheers

Salman

Simply fantastic! The install indeed looks like a factory fit. High quality to be appreciated. In fact, the only thing that's sticking out like a sore thumb is the after-market audio HU. Perhaps a change there?

Could you please share details on the power steering components used? I know a lot many Gypsy owners are keen on this conversion and it'd surely be of help to them.

Gypsy looks nice. I am not the techo pro but a question regarding a/c efficiency. How efficient it will be specially in terms of Indian summer and the soft top?

The old man who owns this Gypsy has spent quite some time and effort in this vehicle.
It runs the original cooling coil and has working ducts to the feet, base of the windscreen and sides of the dash board. Of course, all this came at the expense of quite a few gray hair

@GTO;
I believe the power steering pump and oil reservoir are from the Esteem and the the steering box is the Koyo unit, which is a direct, bolt on replacement. The air conditioner compressor is also from the Esteem and both the pump and the compressor are mounted on the OEM Esteem mounting.
Or least that was what the old man told me..

The owner is a person who knows alot about cars. Its sad to see that a person like him didn't get approved by team-bhp to become a member.

fantastic work. wish there were more professional installers like these.

Can you share details on who did the install and his details?

Front seat looks like the standard seats with extra padding and seat covers. Rear seat is custom?

Gypsy with Power steering and AC would rock. I wish it had IFS in front. The reason I sold my gypsy was because it had no PS and leaf springs made the ride too bouncy.

Didn't you know that before buying?

Thanks

I knew but could not imagine how much I would miss PS and IFS. I decided I would go for IFS and PS so came my 1988 pajero for which I paid lot more than 2001 MPFI Gypsy.
