However, you like it and that's what matters. Good to see your efforts paying off.
I too agree with this! The rear and side look really good!
With the front, I feel you will have some overheating issues, which even a normal gypsy has! Not sure if the scoop is only for show, maybe you will need to change the fan!

The switches are called aircraft style flip switches. They should be available with the tuner boys of blr.

For the snorkel, contact swastic viji. He may have it.
