First test drive report:-
The main thing which i was having a lot of fear is of the weight but for the engine it was no issue to pull it up. Second i got a lot of attraction and good compliments from the road side viewers. Here are some pics

the wheel wells and fenders are too small to accomodate bigger tyres to compliment or match the size of the vehicle.

the rear over hang is too much, it drags the vehicle down!

the front windscreen and the B pillar are not in the right combination, i find the windscreen higher than the B pillar.

im still not sure about the driver's seat, you can see the current sitting arrangement, the head of the driver is almost at the same level as the B pillar. the steering wheel, the driver seat, the height of the windscreen and the B pillar, they all need to compliment each other for safety reasons.

i dont see a good finished product, but landing up in the wacky & wierd thread (no ofference to the owner and his efforts, but the end result is W&W)!

Do you even know what are the technical norms regarding safety?
I dont even see a 'B' pillar,it is just sheet metal work. I am sure if you punch it hard enough its going to give up,let alone support vehicle's weight in an event of desperate measures. And I dont see a roll cage.
Whats wrong with front fender and rear overhang?
Seems like suffering from elephantaisis!

As, I already said the fender flares are made according to bigger tyres to accommodate that much space. Plus the overall height is to be increased and leveled and the front windscreen is not in combination due to its improper leveling. I will post the new pictures within few days.

No offense at all Aakash but even after painting, it'll best be suitable as a "BAND BAJA BARAAT" car. The JEEP RENEGADE (2008) vision you had is lost somehere just behind the headlights.
First test drive & that even with such low tyre pressure in front !! beats me !!
With bigger tyres, I believe you mean fatter tyres, aka DHABWALI style.

Since its your own chopshop, I think you can still do some corrections before someone puts her in W&W thread. Have another look at Renegade pic you posted on page 1 of your thread.

Here are the pics too show the main purpose of the extended flares. A 1feet broader tire accommodate to this design as a stock and i fully cant copy that jeep renegade because of two main reason. First, I don't have a perfect die casting of sheet metal to match up the exact picture. Second the biggest reason of copyright and moreover it was just a inspiration nothing was related to copy that. Plus the all design which, I created was in my mind.

Just stumbled on this thread. Never came in here earlier, as i thought it was a regular gypsy mod.

I get your design inspiration, but it is very very hard to comment at this stage right now. Probably nearer completion, it may be easier, but now, its seems that it requires a lot of drastic change to ensure it does not look bad

Try to make the wheel arches bigger. For a project like this, you need less overhang, wide wheel arches and high GC, with big wheels. Also, change the front

Oh boy. This will surely land in Weird and Wacky thread. Well to be honest, if it was wacky, it would be okay, but this falls surely in the realm of weird.
Would do a good job as a circus vehicle, but I am sure that was not the original intention!

One can see the effort that has gone into this one, but it sadly if likely to be a bit W&W. If something could be done about the front windshield (get it back angular) as well as something to loose the sideways curves on the rear this could be salvaged, but it seems hard.

This ofcourse in only from the point of view of a third party buyer, if it is for self use, then what one sure is free do do as one likes and to live ones dream.

Wish it had the straight lines back and that the fendors were done up in somekind of abs / fiber at right angles to the body rather than the angles that it has presently.

This kind of looks like the special M&M vehicles that the ATS sqad has obtained in mumbai and other places but in a curvy sort of manner.

The head room is another thing that is not too clear from the snaps.

Buy yes the effort and passion is definately visible.

I guess this is what happens when a Gypsy spends (not-so-) quality time with an Amby.
