Correct ,who says buyers economy . buggered up & abused vehicles are being done with some lipstick /lali & presented as mint conditioned ones at the cost of gold .

Rock Sliders and offroad bumpers - GOOD
Shackle Body Lift and Leaf-Spring work - GOOD

SPOA - BAD!

Go for 235-75-R15 and 7J rims. With 7J already the tire has only mild sidewall curve. Anything bigger and the sidewall will be absolutely straight and the ride quality will suffer (as Samurai mentioned in the tires/rims thread).

You can also get petrol tank, transfer case guard and diff pumpkin protection.
This is lot of sence & economical too ( buildiing & maintenance wise ) I like Gurus car . @ Deva , You can research & add more skid plates ( you know where its needed & have lot of experiance & observations )

All I can say that you have got a clean piece , So best of luck

Let this be somthing, a kind of vehicle , that will have all the experiance/knowledge you & the EXO has put into it ( practicality )

Let it be the flagship of EXO

I have kept my hood and planning to keep it as it is one master piece ever made.
1. Water don't enter from spark plug, but it normally shots the spark plug because of the current leak being water be the good conductor of current. I remember there are some special type of cables which seals the slots of Spark plugs, pls check with experts.

2. Guys don't make a scene of HT like 3.5 lac thing, have u guys have ever seen such a nice curves in any HT. Devang don't remove it.

you can call it as "Monstar with nice figure"

Congrats on the King, Pdev. I'm sure Ishan bargained a couple of grand off for the hideous hard top.

Only on Team-BHP though. You had a BHPian check it out, bargain on the price and then another helped you in transporting it across.

You plan on converting the DL plates to MH?

Guys i have kept my hardtop for Exhibition. Please contact me for entry passes.
if anyone want to copy the design then please contact me for permission and charges.

@Sudarshan - I have the design for all protection guard, it will be fabricated soon.

@alok - yes sir i am talking about those cables only.

@GTO you are right, every bhpian has a known name and someone to trust in every state and city in India.
Thats the reason TBHP Rocks.

Regarding registration I will change it to MH but i dont think so it will be now. for now i will just get the NOC and transfer it just before it expires.

recent update - car is serviced. going to get it today.
tomorrow it will go for touchup and later for soft top. I will try get few pics today.

here are the latest pics for you all.

the most expensive hard top in this world is now removed and sent to a museum. Z+ security around the museum.

Next step - paint touch up, soft top and brake booster.

Saar...I am not a fan of the white front grille. Gives the vehicle this "Shocked Fish" look. Kindly do the needful

What about tires? Any decisions made on that front?

4WD working properly? perhaps you should do a quick test of all that this weekend? Or did you get a chance to do that on Sunday's OTR already?

Allan and me are planning to do a short run at mahape on saturday morning to compare the scorp and dcm MMs. Let's check your vehicle too.

There is a chance of rain and hail. Please get your hardtop fixed and come. Need a good laugh too!
