Don't know the guys name. Its a GV with lots of "rally prepping" with stickers, loud exhaust. Even at 4 guna 4 event it kept on getting stuck everywhere
It even ripped its bumpers and fenders etc.,

His name is Gaurav Chiripal, well what happened to his GV was that he entered the water with too much speed and then he braked... When you brake the entire water comes back on the bonnet rather splashing outside, secondly the problem was he didnt have any fender lining which caused his filter to get wet.
I have been using an external filter was quite some time in rallies but never faced the same problem, even in OTR's.

Thanks a lot Tanveer. Raid I am not sure but yes definitely ready for the Himalayas this year. I plan to take the Gypsy to Leh rather than my Landcruiser.

I have one question about the K&N filter. I think you may have trouble with water crossings. I remember a travelogue by sudev, where a K&N equipped GV took in water due to similar placement of aftermarket performance filter. Since you were going for extensive modifications, why not a snorkel to make her the perfect offroad beast?
I also had the same apprehension at first. But after seeing a couple of gypsy's with the same air filter perform in OTR's, Raid, etc I made the choice for this air filter.

Is that the OE tank or a custom tank fitted behind the cabin?
The rest of the mods are already on the cards. I just wanted to take the vehicle home and run it in. Once I complete the first 1000 kms, the mods are on.

Can you share more detailed pictures & info on the auxiliary tank, parts required etc. Would like to have a look

And yes, knowing you, please drive it for some time before you start yet another project :-)

Happy driving
Thanks Khan
Will surely post detailed pics of the auxiliary tank in a few days.
And I am surely going to keep this one for good.

Thanks Mate.
Not at all. On the contrary the visits to Noida will remain the same. As you already know the LHD CJ3B is at Aman's Garrage.

When do I get a test drive?
Thanks Vaibhav
Your gypsy was the main inspiration for me going the complete red. Rest most of the vehicle I've seen with a two tone job but having already seen your vehicle in all red, gave me the courage to go ahead. thanks mate
Whenever you have the time. Just tell me the time and location, and Ill be there.

Vaibhav I also wanted to ask you about the PSK bumper from Azad designs that you bought. Do you still have it or you gave it away with the vehicle itself? Also if you dont mind sharing, how much did you buy it for

Happy motoring for the years to come. And when is the Ladakh trip? (i can feel it in the air)
The ladakh trip is surely on the cards buddy. I think late august or september should do it.
Cheers

Harjeev,you know i dont write too much but the comments and compliments that you are getting inspires me. The work that went in your Gypsy was beyond comparison with any that i did in my past projects. Apprehensions are always there when you are doing such a project( How the gyp would come out, will there be vibrations when u change the engine mounts and a complete make over like yours i had to keep lot of things in mind). I sincerly THANK everyone and last but not the least to you Harjeev for showing your trust in me. I hope the gypsy is doing great in your run in period.
Gud luck and keep REVING...
Cheers...

Thanks for asking !! It is still a regime of excercises to keep me going. Ya the W 124 is still with me. Posted in the classifieds. Do wish to sell it to someone who is as keen on it as I was / am

Anyways, your Gypsy has started the "keeda" of wanting to own one all over again !! Though it may be a show piece as everyone tells me it is the worst vehicle to drive if one has a back like mine.

Kudos to you on the build though....


Cheers

woooooooooooow,

What a transformation, I remember seeing the rust bucket when I came to pick up my Gypsy and the way I saw it recently, was really unbelievable. The workmanship that has gone into it, is too much.

Have you finished the run-in period? Has it given any troubles so far? Going by my experience and my Gypsy and drive down to Calicut, it should be boringly reliable. Just fill and go on and on. I am now looking forward to getting my rally cabin also done.

Have fun.

Firoz

Hey Harjeev,

Free weekends or not we were bound to meet accidently. Loved seeing your ride closely and thanks for the detailed description that you gave inspite of the fact that you were in a hurry.

Managed to click a picture of your ride while we were departing

The Gypsy looks completely fabulous. IF you don't mind can you please share the cost of the car and the cost of rebuilding the car to the current condition? If you don't want to share it on the forum, would you mind sending me a PM with the details ?

Thank You

Dear Harjeev,

That is a very nice set of wheels you have there. Would really love to own one someday.

I too am interested in knowing the cost and my request is the same as Indrojit.

Regards.

Sorry guys for the late reply. The final cost of the vehicle including everything should be in the range of 30 - 35 % less than what is costs to buy a new vehicle. Yes this the approximately price range.
But for me the vehicle is priceless.
Cheers
