Recently i came across asimilar vehicle undergoing restortion in the garage where my Gypsy is lying now for upgradation, came to know that it is alomst 9 months the work has started and the owner & mechanic is so passionate and precise is all the aspects of restortion hence no time limits. Here are some pics clicked on the phone.

Thanks for sending the pictures Anil. I can see from the pictures that the owner and the mechanic are very passionate. Its great to see the snorkel and the Yokohama Geolanders M/T. It is quite inspiring.

Jay, Congrats on Jonga. Yoko M/Ts look very mean.
How is the availability of parts compared to Vintage jeeps?

Hi jaskirat,

Congratulations on your new acquisition!!
I too got a RCL Jonga a couple of months back and have just about managed to get the mechanicals sorted - finding spares in Bombay is a monumental task considering the fact that work keeps me busy..Its good to know that you are intending on keeping the original petrol motor (I intend to do the same as well). the engine, once fully restored is bullet-proof but known to be extremely thirsty - You must consider getting a bigger fuel tank if you intend to drive long distances.

With regards to tires, I would recommend that you get tires that are of a harder compound since the Jonga is really heavy - yokohama MT's might ware out sooner than expected.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any queries..

Goodluck with the build..

Regards,
Prasad Iyer

Snorkel, alloys, geolander tyres I have never thought someone going that level and that too for a JONGA, I saw people managing with the JONGA as is where condition which eventually turns out to be deteriorating condition, awesome passion for this unique machine, what are your plans Jaskirat? we would love to hear it from you.

Dwarka, the parts for the Jonga are quite difficult to get, especially the rubbers, gaskets and trims. The mechanical parts can be got from the scrap market e.g., Mayapuri, but you need a keen eye to pick-up the right parts.

I agree that the Yoko M/Ts look great.

Hi Prasad,

Its great to know that there are several Jongas undergoing restoration. Hopefully one day we can meet with our vehicles, and also form a Jonga Club.

I have just started working on my Jonga and am addressing the mechanicals first. Parallely I would be working on the electricals. Only after I am satisfied with the running of the vehicle will I begin work on the body.

The Jonga that I have has fairly strong mechanicals and might not need too much of time to sort out. In fact the engine is in great condition and has already been started. I shall focus more on the suspension and the drivetrain.

Like you I also do not get too much time to work on my vehicle. I do whatever I can on the weekends.

I do not intend using Yokohama, but would be considering Silverstone / Cooper instead (I am attaching a picture of Silverstones that I took sometimes back in Delhi). These are definitely much harder than the Yokohamas. But tyres and wheels are still far away on my agenda.

Hope to keep in touch.

Regards

Jaskirat

Dont want to play the contrary factor, but just a query can a scorpio 2.6 regular or CRDE with gearbox be plonked in the Jonga. Is it feasible ?

I am quite certain it is feasible, but why ?

Cost effectiveness, more reliablity and torque.

Wow! Second Jonga restoration/redo so close to home?

Once things are sorted out a little, would like to have a look at the beast.

BTW Jaskirat, do we have good mechs for Jonga in Chandigarh or would you be taking it somewhere else for the work?

Keep the updates coming and all the very best!

Regards,
Jaspreet Singh

My estimate is 4 - 5 Kmpl. I intend converting the Jonga to electronic ignition, with which the mileage should improve slightly. I will pop a bottle of Champagne if it starts giving 6 Kmpl.
