Hello Everyone,
I am back with a few more pictures of my Jeep Rattler. Last week I had a couple of issues pertaining to the engine power. The jeep was choking when shifted to 2nd and also on the 3rd gear. The jeep is still under scrutiny (sort of a running-in period) after the restoration so, I took it to the mechanic. The issue was solved within 15 minutes and out came a handful of dirt clogged in the Banjo under the fuel tank and also from the baby fuel filter sitting on the pump.
Today I replaced the engine oil, oil and diesel filters and the jeep is now performing optimally.

Over to pictures!

Default Canvas

Hi Rattler,

You JEEP looks purposeful. Nice canvas.

I need some information about the canvas used.

Is it the waxed type/ sail cloth?

What is the cost per meter and it thickness.

Regards,

Arka

Hi Arka,
Its my privilege communicating with you. Thank you so much for your feedback. The Tarpaulin that I've used is indeed the waxed type and, it came in 12' x 15' measurement. This is an inexpensive tarpaulin normally used to cover the goods on a truck and is very heavy! I have no idea about the thickness of the material though I purchased the whole piece for 2,400 INR.

Warm Regards,
Sudhir.

This is what I call offroader. your jeep commands respect. Color choice ideal for jungle roads. One clarification, how do you manage to drive on a rainy day, I donít see any covering to protect from rain. (driver side & passenger side)

Hi Narendra,
Thank you so much for your comments. I have the side flaps removed and kept safely. Come rainy season and I will have them attached to the jeep. BTW, I am extremely sorry for replying so late.

Warm regards,

Sudhir.
