OMG! dude why would you do this to your Gypsy?

I understand that it is your vehicle and it is your call in the end. But the front end looks horrible. I can bet that your vehicle will end up in the weird and wacky mod jobs section.

I agree with other 100% on backing out of the front end changes. IMO back out from them and keep the originality.

Hey buddy, I don't think the front looks so bad. But final verdict should be passed after job completed. Another option you could use is wire mesh grill. Remove all the vertical partition from grill area and put a mirror buffed steinless steel wire mesh. It will look awesome with darker glossy paint shade on body. And you could fit some chrome finished alloys to complete the bling look.
By the way you can also use wire mesh on original front. That way you can look different without loosing originality.

Nikhil, one and only important question. Are you going to use this for off roading or as a regular drive bling gypsy? If for off roading, keep the weight down. The front end with the roof, etc, makes it heavier. If for bling, do what you want.

@deutscheafrikar, ya i saw the punjab thread and poured out my exasperation there as well!

i think once the front end is finished and the vehicle is painted it is going to look awesome as regards the excess weight for offroading it really wont matter if you do not take too many people with you

Yep Tejas I heard your exasperation and saw that nobody paid heed. It's a pity. I like the gypsy the way it is. So you're the lucky fellow mumbaiker who owns a classic. Enjoy it.

One question, isnt plastic / fiber glass, sheets eazy to fabricate for body kits? Wont it be easier to replace them in case of them being damaged?

But Sai colorium seems to swear by metal work, every single mod that i have seen in their work shop is using metal. But from the look of it, metal work certainly is not eazy.

You need to make a mould first for fibreglass. So it gets more expensive for just one piece.

yes you r right you will have to make to a mould first and even a small accident will rip the fiber apart if the chemicals r not bonded well during the process,and not all workshop know about the repairing part of it where as metal any tinkering guy can get it back to shape

+1,

The mold is first made out of metal and then it is casted with fiber glass. SO any ways FG is used if you are looking to reduce some weight. Gypsy anyways dosent weigh a lot.
