Sad, you could have just gifted the gypsy to me.

Next time, if there is one, get everything first on the chart, then do a 3D and then venture into something like this ( err hopefully not like THIS, but something other than this). If one is blessed with surplus, there is always charity.

P.s: and those buses, let them have safety windows and exit in case of an emergency.

I do not mean to discourage the OP, I can only applaud the enthusiasm to build from scratch - the garage inventors attitude needs to be cherished!!

However there will be a day when you feel the need to recover your investment and move on with a new project. No road user of a regular car is likely to buy this "Thing" but you will find a good chance with a Travelling Circus or Marriage Baraat band party if you make it real "Chakachuk" with mirror pieces and red colours and all.

Keep up the DIY spirit!

I'm not blaming the vehicle but that how it's designed (read: Jap) on the other hand you are trying to create something which is American. The key words are Low and Wide. See another thing which I feel is very wrong is that the huge fender flares dont go well against the narrow steeper side walls. If the side walls were a lot less steeper and flowed down gently it would have merged into the fender flares gracefully. IMHO you need to rethink that part. It's looking as if the "SUV" would not be able to stand up on it's feet due to the huge flares.
Another thing which I always feel with wide designs is that there should be sufficient use of "angles" - you know flowing or sliding or inclined as you may call it looks better on wide side walls than steeper side walls / steeper angle - if you know what I mean.
When doing side walls you could dream a few things already. Like starting wide and then going thinner as you reach the top.

Having said that I really love the amount of effort and passion you have put into this.
I don't want to discourage you but I saw it coming when you started the project. I think you should carefully choose a paint when doing this car. Also, try to powder coat the flares and bumpers.

Finally the outcome is here. But still some things to be done.

Why is there a open in the center of door ? or is it an paint job which is confusing me ?

Hats off to you on this bold effort which no one dared. but the final look is like, the Gypsy is missing something, i really can't tell what but its missing something.

Did you check the vehicle for safety ?

The open space in the door is a criss cross mesh grill, just to give a design. The missing part in it is the foldable roof which is in process of making. This roof will be fixed bolt on roof made of light weight material.

no hard feeling on your efforts, time & money spent on the "Gypsy"!

but this vehicles belongs to the W&W thread or The Great India Circus to take the clowns for a round!

please dont make fun of your self and be the butt of jokes!

I agree with Parm, this belongs to WnW thread. I don't know about you but I wouldn't want to be seen even, around that thing.

However I appreciate your effort. Though the end result is disaster, I am sure next time you will get it right. Sometimes a failure is necessary for (future) success. Remember, never a failure, always a lesson.

Sorry to say to the replies the people are making, but my efforts are much more better then any other who creates a thing from his own ideas and efforts in our country.

I like the quality of the paint job.
It certainly looks different.
I appreciate your efforts to materialize your concept.
Don't get discouraged by negative comments.

Well buddy, if you are posting your car's pics here, asking for feedback or opinions, then you should be open to criticisms as well. Not everyone will agree with you or have the same taste as you.

Well, coming to your project, like others, I really really appreciate your effort, hard work & most importantly, the guts & initiative to try something different. but sadly, the end result was not very good, in my humble opinion.

Your car looks way out of proportion. Of course, some parts do look well executed in bits & parts or in isolation but as a whole, especially considering this is a Gypsy, you could have turned it into a real monster. This is not what i would like a wonderful gypsy being converted into.

I am again saying, your efforts deserve an applaud but next time you try something like this, make a 3-D model & then touch the car. That would save your time, money & effort.

Best of luck for your future projects. Can you post some interior pics as well?

Just your Ideas dear AG, just your ideas. If one would have the patience to go through the site, there wouldnt be that 'thing' that you created from your own 'ideas'. And from this same 'country'.

A gypsy is way better than a 'thing' which is not so much of a 'thing' either!

I have this strange feeling, The Team now has an in-house W an W designer. (Who probably goes by the name AGWWD?)

I do not know you, I know the gypsy and love it.

Why don't you put up a poll, which goes, is this the best 'thing' that happened to the w and w thread?

But hey, Thanks for all the effort! Making people laugh is sorta tough these days!
