I saw the your gypsy @ Sai Colorium. Too much of 'Kilos' you are adding on to your car.

If I recall correctly, the guy from SC was telling that, plonking a Toyota Qualis engine is also planned. Is that for your Gypsy Nikhil?

Hmm, keen on seeing what the end product is, until then I will keep mum !!!

A good idea would be to put larger/wheels tyres since this is a city vehicle

hi,
nice work. please do inform us what you plan to do to the huge gaps you have in the fenders. Please dont put some humongous indicator light. also seems like there is a conflict of design between the front and back the front lights and design are angular. whereas the bumper is round. At the back the lights are round and the bumper is angular. Suggest that knowing the limitations of lights available atleast add some roundness to the bumperat the back

will look into the that.the body fabrication is nearlly done 90% and will be moving the car for painting this sunday or monday.yes the front has become a bit bigger than the back .the huge gap is for the indicators, well on the the paper the drawing looks small but as and when the car got into fabrication the front started to look big,not too happy the way the front is come up...
