Very well done Indra. You have done thorough justice to the King. Waiting to see the alloys you have ordered.

Thumbs up One helluva job

Good job done on your Gypsy Indra. Will you let me on to Santan to fabricate that bumper for my Gypsy too ?
I See you already tested that winch from the photos on your post

Are those MICKY THOMPSONS that are coming from the US ? They are great wheels.
Will try to drop into Margao this week. Cheers till then

The gypsy is simple looking amazing. Don't regret about your choice of bumper. Its very well gelling with the car. And yes, it badly need new rims and better shoes.

@indra slk : thats a really wonderful job. Its nice to see such enthusiasts here on the forum.

Can you provide some information on the winch? Whats the type of winch? If its self-winch where has it been powered from? How effective is the winch? I can see you trying your winch in one of the pics.

Great Going Indra!!!

Just one question about your snorkel, the pipes coming out from the body to the snorkel look like those pvc pipes that bend. Wouldnt those give away in harsh conditions.

I agree with Desmosedici, you need a more stronger pipe moulded to fit your gypsy.

Maybe the bendy pipe is just used as a cover?
I'm sure Indra must've thought about this before fitting. Under the bendy pipe there probably is a stronger rigid one.

I don't know anything about snorkels, correct me if im wrong!

Good going, Indra.

Await the final outcome of the Gypsy once all the work have been completed.

Why are you replacing the Red recaros? They look much better than the black ones and are going very well with the red roll cage.

Karizma9292: You may want to check out the exhaust design on the white Gypsy in the following post as well if you are planning to lift the exhaust up.

That pipe from the snorkel is the same pipe used on Tata Sumo air intakes. Bought two of those. Actually my mechanic made the full snorkel.

My mechanic built the roll cage. But pipes were bought by me. Its about 900-1000 bucks a pipe. Bought 5 of them.

Replacing the red Recaros because they soak water. They are made from some sort of cloth.

Whereas the black recaros are leather. So my butt will not get wet anymore
