No raj, they are not. They are just normal/stock bulbs which came with the hellas. I just changed the contrast on the computer to make it look like this.
But this is what i have in mind for the bulbs. Will be changing all the bulbs to White (Donno the technical name for it) very soon.

Akaash,

I read in some thread that white lights do not provide great illumination on the road. Moreover its a blinder for the incoming vehicles so please check before going for the white lights. I have Philips 100/90 rally bulbs and i find them sufficient enough atleast for city driving. With the 8 lights you have, i dont think you need to worry

Cheers,
Raj...

I second Raj on this, as I have White lights(Philips) on my Octavia and the visibility is LOW as compared to the regular ones. I am currently using my fogs at night with the main headlight. Will definitely go back to regular ones at the first instance.

Is this something normal in gypsy or am I supposed to get it checked ?
There is a nylon "O" ring under the drive select shifter. I suggest you get that changed. Makes a world of a difference.

After much frustration in finding the alloys for my gypsy, decided to go to J.C road and buy whatever i could there.

Found the below alloys the best of the lot (there were on 3 designs available), so bought it .


Yes, 15 inch 7.5 J


Bought A GYPSY KING-img_75851.jpg


the spare tyre which could not be fixed as it was too fat to fix on the stock nuts.


Bought A GYPSY KING-img_75881.jpg



Bought A GYPSY KING-img_75891.jpg

Bought A GYPSY KING-img_75931.jpg

Bought A GYPSY KING-img_75971.jpg

Bought A GYPSY KING-img_75991.jpg

Bought A GYPSY KING-img_76001.jpg

Finally project Gypsy Phase 1 - Complete !

Open to suggestion/feedback

congrats for completion of phase 1!

alloys look great.

what is the offset?
have you changed the nut & stud as well?

& if possible go for the special universal hex nuts. (for the safety of alloys)

Thanks Nikhil. Yes the nuts have been replaced with chrome Allen nuts (thats what they called in J.C road), costed more than 1000rs for it. I never knew that nuts are so costly these days

Those are OE headlights in the picture above, that comes with beam adjusters. I have clear lamps on DwArF from Autopal iirc. Should fit gypsy also.

Congratz on the completion of first phase

How did you attach the extra lights overhead? Did you weld a new bar for the fittings? Can you post a close-up of that please?

Would you consider your new front bumper unsafe like a bull bar (shock and impact directed to the chassis) or will it still allow the impact to hit the crumple zones of the car?

Thanks

Dont ask me, that was a piece of art by its own . Took me and the fabricator close to 3 days to figure it out as i did not want it to touch the soft-top (would be difficult to remove the ST) and also wanted 0 vibration.
Ill upload some pics later.

No idea, yet to crash to check to see how it works.

Gurus who have installed it can shed more light on this as more or less every gypsy has it now

Hey Shakir,
Those 175 bucks one isn't clear lens actually.
The ones which Akaash is looking for are actually much costlier is what i've heard.
I'll check with Lokesh if these clear lens are available at Surakshaa.
If yes, i'll let Akaash know.
Cheers,
Deepak

Clear lens with level adjusters (OE) are approx 2k per piece i guess. The clear lens i mentioned are bout 200 for one full kit, need to check if the adjuster screws are at same position, though i have a feeling that they are.
