What about [SIZE=2]brake line extension?[/SIZE]
Every thing made in the local lathe, thats why its taking lot of time. each mistake means 2 days gone.

Front brakes its Wagon R rear not done any thing as of now, tomorrow he will decide what best he can do.

You mean to say the wagonR break lines are lengthier than Gypsy’s Break lines?

And I hope it’s a direct fit.

I am sure your Gypsy will surly look like a Monster on Road.

So what’s Aditya saying?

I am using only flexible brake pipes of Wagon R,

let me see once it comes to road,

He wanted only one thing, taking out rear seats to take his ATV to OTR.

Sweeeeeeeeet Vijay Sir!!
It looks killer! That before and after pictures reminds me of HULK movie
Why not chop the rear over hang?
Why is the front differential right offset? Or is this the case with all Gypsies?
Cheers!
Deepak

Hello,
This is brilliant looking!
Articulation must have improved quite a bit, no?
Also, is there enough room for the tyre in the rear wheel wells?

Btw, this was always the look I plannedo n going for, in my own gypsy!
Softtop, with a nice bumper + SOA-type-stance.. looks meaannn!

When will you be testing it out?


Starter, front diff is offset to the right in all gypsies..

Viji, thats a macho looking Gypsy, love the front bumper styling. Anti roll bar looks misaligned or is it the angle of the pic?

Spike

P.S. Is the front indicator lamp mounted on the front bumper from a MM540?

Viji,

That is one beautiful looking ride!

Don't know what to say; anything said would not do justice to the beau and also to the effort that you are putting behind it.

Regardless, here's wishing your mechanics the proper attitude to get this done as you have visioned it to be.

Oh yeah! I can't wait to see the Gypsy vs Jeep discussion with Viji's feedback once he has taken this to an OTR.

This is after the RUF mod. That's why you don't see the steering drag link in the pictures (surprising that it has missed the eagle eyes of members here.. ). With RUF, the drag link touches the left leaf spring and needs to be modified. Either a Z-Link setup or a cross-over is mandatory for RUF.

So, has the spoa in this gypsy been done in the same manner as khan's gypsy?!
I'm sure you guys must've done a few things differently this time around .. can we know some more about this please ?
Thanks!
