Hi Nikhil,

Good job so far and i must say from what I have seen i do agree with you and a few others that the front doesnt seem too good.Well, you win some you lose some. Did you try to mod the instrument console and any images/suggestions about the same?

No offence ment.

Gypsy is always good in with stock radiator grills.

Decreasing the lenght is a good idea ! but changing the overall shape and looks is a bad idea and waste of money.

Wow, the design looks more like an armored car escort or more like a beast from the movie 'Death Race'. has the weight increased by adding all the extra metal?

I have a '91 vintage gypsy, LPG variant, and I was trying to get someone to manufacture a wodden or fibreglass dash as the stock dash has too little in terms of utility or space. I am a long haul driver and need some space on th edash for stuff like GPS, mobile holder, clock, and a few other things. Also want to re work the dash to include a Tach, gear position indicator ( little greedy there) a combined LPG/Petrol gauge, turn indicator, temp gauge and speedo. Was searching the net for a LCD option as well. Oh well the wish list is endless, but this is the synopsis. Lets see what we can come up with. Comments?

Keep it simple and sober buddy, White is bright, plus you can add a bit of silver or grey decals to keep the looks great.
the White may make your ride look just like as if its a new model of Gypsy being launched . LIMITED EDITION
