The vehicle looks tilted to the right side (driver side). Probably you many need to get the leaf set re cambered.
How about some nice chunky AT tyres now?
Jeeva,

There is lot more to come
1. Tyres, Alloy or not!!
2. Tp paint or not
3. Seats
4. Soft top
5. New radiator
6. Suspension
7. Rear seat planning
8. AC or not..

List goes on. Curse you couger Roy and all the team-bhp 4x4 crazies, my world was simpler before , but now it's better.

While the firt two pics are when the body paint job is done, the rest are almost after 1 month when all the remaining job like fitting, waterproofing, new Gypsy radiator with WagonR fan done. Lot of these ideas were taken from various posts, so many thanks to all those members on this forum.

Congratulations Rohit. The Gypsy looks super cool - good choice of color as well, refreshingly different from the usually seen white. Could you give an idea of the total amount spent over the restoration?

Now thats what I call a sweet restoration Rohit. The gypsy looks good. I am trying to restore a Sierra and going through the same pains!!! Its an endless money pit and the Sierra is renowned for that!!
BTW, where are you located in "aaple Pune"? Would like to get info and see the gypsy first hand as well.

Regards,
Kaustubh

thanks Guys!!

There are no rear seat photos as there is none. It's my primary work horse for paragliding. So the rear is cargo bay to keep by glider, small bed to take rest in the afternoons, water bottles, lunch, bean bag to relax etc. Flexibility is what I love about my rear cargo bay.
