Thats a beautiful looking jeep. I get your point of painting the rims white. Yes fenders are something I should definitely add. I like the repositioning of the turn indicator too. Very nice. Thank you for your inputs.

Default Fantastic!!

Hey Papaboost,
I'd seen Vijay's Jeep at Solotech. From what it was to what it is; Awesome!!
Really, fantastic work! Superb attention to detailing. It looks like it has just rolled out of factory.
Cheers,
Deepak

Thanks Starter.
Jeepster - Yes that was the general idea. Thought I would document the first build.

Paint removed on this jeep by hand using chemical stripping (Paint remover) and then wire brushing to bare metal. In future we are going to media blast. Machine has arrived, waiting for a new air compressor.

Sorry these tyres are 235 x 85 x R16 and not 31x10.5 as mentioned above. Got confused with the tyres that I purchased for the second jeep. :-)

Lovely pics. The red paint adds to to drool quotient.

I missed the second one, looking nice. A black top would make it really look good
