you can use that spare time in designing proper engine mounts
ill send you pictures of mine
again im sorry if i did not reply to your previous p.m's if you did send them
you can directly contact me(Allan 09833884020) , ill guide you regarding the mating and any other help need
be advised: your getting into fun territory and be prepared to loose some of your hair over the wiring
Allan, please send the pics of engine/GB mating to my email ID(sumit_hsi@hotmail.com). Also expect a couple of calls from me too on the same subject.

I think its raining MG416 in India.

You can PM me the details if you wish

Thanks buddy , PM not neccesary as this is not a top secret info .

Make of these alloys is Silverline . MRP is 22k but the ones i bought was used for 3 days so got it for 17k . It was a mix of black & buffing , i did not like that so got this painted to full matt finish black.

Really happy to see the progress of your Gypsy. Man you are going to ignite the spark of jealousy. On one hand you have Jonga and other Gypsy 1.6..( We have spoken over phone few times). Is is possible to check out you Gypsy & Jonga at your convenience.

Congralutions! Gypsy with Baleno engine 1.5 ltr and King gear box (i pressume) is a deadly combination. I am eagerly looking for it to be on road.

HI huys , its been a while i updated the thread , so here goes with the pics from this week's progress . Did not use metal paste even at the smallest places , used 3M's body filler , hardener and Lesonal putty . For the chassi undercoat and floor used 3M's underseal . Bought swift seats for the front. Sorry for the poor quality images as i forgot my cam in my house & these were taken with my mobile


Closed the vent because in my previous gypsy water used to leak through it

Why are you not shortening the rear overhang? That would have been a neat mod with this build.

I know sir , i wanted to but bro does not want it . I so much wanted a shorter rear after i had a hard time with my old gypsy while climbing down a rocky descent . Let my bro's Jonga finish restoration im sure he'l take his eyes off the gypsy then i'l do it

Do it now, much easier since you are doing a ground up restoration. No double expense with painting etc also.

The swift's seats wont be a little bulky?

Good decision to close the vent holes.. Its a leaky spot / corrosion point for Gypsy.

Its kind of a tight fit but fits well . Will put up pics of the seats in place by today . Went in search of Baleno seats but ended up buying these as i got a good deal for these.

Yeah buddy , my previous gypsy couldn be driven during rains because of this reason so decided to close it.

And bro do you have pics of your gypsy's engine & GB mated together? If yes please send to my mail id (sugan.prasad87@gmail.com)
