Good stuff.

Have you worked on customizing the interiors as well? Could you also post some pictures of the interiors?

Cheers,
Ardy

Nice work Nikhil. I'm not much of a Jeep fan but I enjoying seeing mods that have clearly been worked on very well.
Here are some observations and comments..
  1. The drivers side viper is not sitting properly.
  2. The canvas is drooping. I'm sure you'll get that fixed.
  3. The front is something I quite like. Reminds of a Hummer and something that would exist in the movie Death Race.
  4. If you want to thin down the front I suggest you make the bumper sit closer to the grille. It will reduce the visual impact.
  5. If you ever want to re-work the grille I suggest you go for horizontal bars, which are much thinner. And to make it look smaller match the frame of the grille to the color of the scoop and bumper and paint alternate slits with the same and the rest with the body color. (Make sure they're welded at an angle facing down-wards)
  6. The alloys look great!
  7. The lever for opening the rear is not going with the rest of the car, even though its barely visible!
My first impression was, "Wow, that's a well worked on car".

Apologies for the late response.

Don't have any photos / suggestions as such. Just thought that since you were already modifying the exterior looks, you may have done something special to the interior as well.

However, should something come to my attention that you may be able to use, I shall definitely post it here.

Cheers,

Good job Nikhil, paint job looks like more of a O/E. silver and black combination with chrome wheels blends very well. Side view, I feel the best looking angle. I know you would have taken real pain in putting together tinker & painter in finishing the job. Commenting is a easy job, but getting job done is not so.

Let me share my experience what I did for my gypsy.
Behind the front seats I enclosed it with fiber glass with a old M800 back glass which could be opened if necessary. Back gypsy seats stayed. This will keep interiors safe.

One small thing I noticed, door rear view mirror, its not aliened properly to the door. I feel its at an angle not parallel to the door. When you close the mirror it projects out. See if you can alter it. Over all well done
