Default JEEPSTER's introduction (finally!!!)

here is my story...

my name is Nikhil More. (24 , without tobacco & alcohol of any kind)
currently in BSL 3rd & ride 88 royal enfield standard.

I had interest in automobile since i can remember.
I love anything which has wheels or engines, but my special love is jeeps & offroading.

you see we were not rich when i was born. at that time dad had a AL truck. during shifting back to latur in the middle of journey i was thirsty & crying for water, my mother gave me water which was kept in truck for filling radiator.
(mom gets emotional whenever she talks about those days)
so its literally in my blood.

fast foreword to 2005,
i got very a very interesting percentage in 12th so all doors to engineering were closed.
So I did next best thing that is went for BSc. but near exam time had a big talk (fight!!) with dad & thus got A's in all subjects. (A= absent)

in that period went to pune in search of diploma in automobile engineering . Found one on talegaon dabhade. But dad was against it, so went for LAW.
one thing about my dad he gave me a expensive PC or bullet to ride but when ever i talk about 4x4 or offroading he says "why do you need 4x4 we have roads every where even to our farms too". somehow the idea of offroading as a sports or as a hobby.

I also consider myself a DIY guy .(But I have very little tools)
I have assembled my PC. (2.6 G Hz quad core, 22" twin displays, 1TB sata, 4GB ram)
Have done my share of opening up things too.

following are the things to do before i die.

Hey that is a long overdue intro.
Love reading your posts.

Nice tool kit btw. I had a similar one, but it melted during a long ride. The new one I got is nice, but those briefcase kinda designs are so easy to carry.

hello , this is really too much to handle.
Why it took you so long to introduce yourself ? ( joined in 2008 oct & intro now ? )

Jeepster what more to say , you seem to be some kind of a guy !

big talk with dad ? & grade A in all ? wow too good to hear that

Does BSL means law ? where are you now in Pune ? ( by the way I also took a wrong turn with maths & ended up doing law )

Hmm , you must be single , otherwise Tools in Bedroom ? my God !

Dear bhp support I am short of 'smilies' here please help !

Anyways the world is full of nutty people & thank god I am not alone

Sudarshan

P.S. you forgot to mention one thing about me , I am the guy who has Hijacked your tools thread right ? Cheers & best of luck .

Mister. Jeepster.

Worth-waiting Intro. Great Collection. Really touching on your early-hood life.

Good luck for your career.

Nikhil,

Your introduction in a most honest and unique style is welcome as you are.

Wish you the best for your aspirations and enjoy T-BHP while you are still single.

Point to ponder...Why do you need an off road vehicle when there are roads all around?

Best Regards,

because i want a jeep but dad is still against it.

currently we have a 750 dp 4x2, 1990 MG410 which i want to restore according to my tests, but again dad is .

as you know i want to convert my 750 to 4x4 from bottom of my heart but dad being dad got 750 restored (engine work+body tuch up+paint) & sent it to our farm to transportation of workers.

gypsy is in a work shop with engine opened & half body work done. because dad wants to restore it by me but the way he wants that is a little paint work + gas kit.

Nice intro Jeepster. all the best with your restoration of MG410 - Hope you are able to convince your dad to allow you to properly restore your gypsy.

(ps: glad to see another guy with tools in his bedroom - I was like you when I was a bachelor, and now I am one of those lucky guys who still gets to keep an occational tool or two in my bed, even after marriage )
