Rajit,
The tiger walks the park and looks good!
You have transformed it into a really good looking 4X4, worth every praise. Great Job, Congratulations.

Why are the head lamp rims missing?
Regards,

Thumbs up Re: MM540 2wd to MM540 4wd and Restoration

The final outcome is very good, Rajith . Nice choice of colour, and the quality of the soft-top also seems to quite good.

One question though...why the Gypsy rims? I think the offset is different and it may have an effect on the way it handles.

Blue Thunder,

Please go through the below mentioned link, it might help in understanding the possible reason to go for a Gypsy Rim.

Hello Rajith,

A super job I must say. Congrats on your new build. It looks a killer
It really must feel like you are bringing your baby home since you put in so much of an effort to bring this project to a sound conclusion.
I wish you millions of miles of happy motoring in your 'Tiger' and hope you have a swell time taking it OTR.
Well done.

Regards.

Your baby has come out to be real killer .Its really great -great job executed with immaculate worksmanhip and still greater devotion on your part Rajith.
Rebuilt like this inspires many of us , who are budding jeepsters and help get ideas and newer opinions which would come handy when we take up our own restoration projects
Congrats once again

Amazing work done on the tiger Rajith, sure did motivate me to work on my jeep, and also did 'borrow' your colour scheme, hope you don't mind saw the jeep parked outside SJBHS here in Bangalore and fell in love with it

The thrill of owning a jeep is in building one, not buying one off the shelf.
Nice work Rajith.
Any recent pics?
