Default "Xtreme Power" finally restores a 1990 gypsy

About 2 years ago , i had picked up four naval gypsy's from an auction.
All were pretty much in bad condition, which was a good thing since then i get to work on them ground up.
the first car was a 1997 gypsy which ended up like this

so finally i decided that this next one, shall be restored to stock condition, just like she was when she rolled out from the showroom, 20 years ago.

Awesome! Good to see someone going down the 'oh ree ginal' route!! But why did you choose a narrow track for this project??

Allan,

It looks totally stripped off on all fronts. Good luck for your effort to put it back in showroom condition.

Hi Allan,
As always, very good job!
One question, what did you do about the fenders?
In the initial pictures, they were missing and in the latest pictures, i see them. So, did you make it yourself or procured it from Maruti?
Cheers,
Deepak
