True. While earlier mods were 'getting parts' from outside and then just putting them here, this project is different from earlier ones as EVERYTHING will be custom fabricated & then installed.
Even with the earlier projects I had my share of spending endless nights of research & then time at workshops, this one will be many times over involved.
The good thing is that we know what all is involved and what all has to be done but still this will be very tricky as we don't have measurements for ANYTHING as yet. All the measurements for the parts to be fabricated will be done ONLY after the project starts and dismantling of the axles is done.
This is what all has to be fabricated/procured
Custom leaf spring perches/mounts. And it is not as simple as getting one fabricated and then replicating it 4 times. The size of driver's side/passenger side front perches would be different.
Extended brake lines. Have to either search for a vehicle whose couplers are same as Gypsy but longer in length. Else, will have to get custom fabricated at SP road.
U Bolts. If the stock one's don't work, then need longer U bolts. Easy to find.
Propeller shaft spacers. With the lift, the shaft will become short. So would need custom spacers -- both for front/rear
Steering: The MOST COMPLEX of all things. Options include a z-link, cross-over, OTT . Will decide when we reach that stage.
Other things that could possibly be required
Custom mounts for long dampers/shocks
And loads of patience, cutting chai & smoke + being ready for the 'unexpected'
@ Khan - I think "extreme power's" gypsy also has the same setup. Saw it recently in delhi. I think it was here for the chandigarh OTR. Looks absolutely fab. Try contacting him. It's always better to take someone's opinion who has done it before rather than re-inventing the wheel.
Best of luck for your project. I will be closely following it, am in love with your gypsy.
