pdev, these are nice pictures and must say that your Gyspy looks great. Love the 'black stock rims and wheels'. Have you painted them in 'Matt' finish?

Also, do post some pictures of the interiors. and yes, the jerrycan on the rear door looks awesome -- great to carry additional fuel supply on long drives.

@ Pdev29, You could remove the rear seats and see a transformation in driving pleasure!

The gypsy looks good, but personally, i would prefer a straight bull bar rather than a curved one! Looks neat!

the daylight pics are good ..great-looking Gypsy you have pdev29. The jerrycan is a wonderful addition : adds to the off-roading image of the vehicle.

Dont think you need esteem booster..a nice set of tyres will do miracles. The esteem booster brakes will make it too servoed and you may lock wheels more often than required! My 2 paise!

fthanks for your comments guys,
@khansultan, bro its the alloys which i got with the car when i bought it, yes it has got matt black finish.

Frankly speaking i enjoyed the drive after esteem boosters, feel more confident about braking.

pdev, How do you ensure the safety of your ICE, SUB & Amp? I can assume that the HU would be in the glove compartment, so is 'kind of safe'. What about Sub & Amp?

I am planning to get ICE done in my Gypsy as well and mine is also half soft top (like yours) but an concerned about the safety of the ICE.
