It looks better from side profile & back profile. The front is toooooo heavy/chunky -- especially the grill part.

However, you like it and that's what matters. Good to see your efforts paying off.

Nice work done. The front does look a little too big for the car. Any thing done on the interiors? Please post some pics, if so.

nice look from the side, front looks heavy due to the headlight setup

is the air vent near the front door real or dummy

is the driver cabin to made out of fibre or metal and can it be removed or is it fixed permanently.


and regarding the dashboard, are you going to change the entire dashboard?

Body line is good . tinker has done a very good job on the additional body. back bumper has smooth design blends well with the body. I agree with few of my fellow bhpans, front look is bit heavy. Front hood without air scoop or may be small scoop. If you are particular about air scoop, bring the outer lines of air scoop touching the bumper.

bro, great job, there's not much one can do without messing up the genuineness of the Gypsy, although many others have commented on the big front end, you can get it up to match by replacing your old tires with bigger broader ones (It might set you back by a few thousands though). also do something for the soft top at the rear, its basically falling in. might collect water during rains.

Overall, good job execution. Have fun smashing cars out of the way he he he
Cheers

with khan sultans opinion.
at the end its his gypsy, his money so its his decision about the looks.
guys go easy with Nikhil.

the build quality is good.
good alloys, please paint the inner grey/silver portion to black.
it will look good with overall black theme.
