Thanks,
You could get a Gear Lock made by Xenos for 1500 bucks. It locks the gear when in reverse. You can also have a concealed Hella Battery Disconnector Switch for 250 Bucks.

Or if you want to get fancy, get a quick release steering hub with a compatible steering.

A friend had recently put a NRG unit in his MR2 and it takes no effort to remove the steering wheel and carry it with you.

Guys I need to get a half cabin made.
How much should a fiber one cost?
Is a metal cabin advisable or a fiber one?
Also, if anybody has a blueprint of the cabin structure it would be of great help.

Thanks

@Gotzuk, whats that rotary thing that is there in the centre console of your friends MR2.

It looks very much like the sound control knob for a hyundai 2.1 speaker system. Has he borrowed it for audio controls or what is it?

Update:
  • engine rebuilt
  • new radiator
  • new clutch plate/pressure plate
  • rims painted silver (sticking to stock right now)
  • Kill switch being installed.
Not much of response of fellow team bhp members, i know its not a complete rally build or a fancy gypsy rebuild thread, but i'm sure the car will be able to nake its mark in OTRs.

Cheers.

Coming out really well and as far as i can see you and your mech are doing the right thing by changing faulty parts instead of repairing it.

Yes Jaggu, we have replaced every essential part. Idea is to have a hassle free 70K-80K kms of ride with regular service.
Would you have a blueprint of a half cabin for a gypsy? Also one of my previous questions remains unanswered- Is a metal cabin recommended or a fiber one? Has anybody used FRP to ake a cabin?

Thanks.
