I'm not a big fan of modding the exterior of older Ambys to look like newer models. I would have liked to see the MkII face left intact, but then again that's just me!
As far as the interiors in your car is concerned, it's just mind boggling! Brilliant stuff!

The interiors are no doubt beautiful sanjog. Please accept my congratulations & admirations .
But how did the Gear lever moved from steering column to floor. I recall the Amby I used to joyride in had steering column mounted gear-lever. Wondering as you have not mentioned anything about the same except dashboard fabrication.

There is a lot of aftermarket equipment that has gone into this project. I am sure it will help the rest of the Team BHP community members if you can list them down, along iwth the source and the price paid.
For instance the custom Dash. details on that will provide some good insights, for me atleast for reading.

That is one sweet job Sanjog....I always had a soft corner for the Amby since my childhood, all the time travelling in the Sarkari vehicles . This was one car which was sturdy, capable of lugging people and had the respect on the road. The dated interiors and features made it unviable.
But You have made my mouth water...It is what one plans to do in his car and visualises it. But the Execution is flawless...Kudos to the Khatris and Govindramji....But More to you and your Spirit....Great one indeed.

Very Very nice job done.
The Interiors and the exteriors are looking good.One main thing in using Dupont is,If the painter is not having experience cant handle it properly.
Can you plz specify the budget of this modifications.
Bucket seats -
Rear AC ducts are realyy a good Idea.I too planned for the painting job.

Beautiful! Makes me miss our series of Ambys (Landmaster, Mark II, IIIts, IV and finally the 1800ISZ). The exterior shut lines are smooth and the interiors are excelllent apart from the area surroinding the gear-lever. Maybe a less shiny finish?
