      Ex military 2000 gypsy mpfi restoration

      Finally taking a jump in to off roading. During my college times I used to think driving a scorpio 2wd on rough roads known as off road any how finally bought a gypsy it's a mpfi 2000 model. Planning to get totally restored right from the chassis .
      The body is in very good condition with out any rust.

      COngrats!! Vijjukrishna.
      The car look pretty neat considering its been deserted for quite a lot.
      The engine bay is in a good shape. Really good shape! Compared to what I have seen used or deserted.
      SO what is the plan of action.
      Do u mind telling how much did it cost you? And one doubt how is the paper work and ownership transfer going on as its a Military vehicle. In here the RTO 'helpers' say its a pain.

      List of work to be done:

      Strip the total body
      Chassis cleaning ,scrubbing applying red oxide and then painting dull black , anti rust treatment.
      Body denting and removing the previous paint.
      1.half engine change
      2. Gear box over haul.
      3. Transfer case over haul.
      4. Differentials check
      5.new radiator mostly a bigger one ( wagon r )
      6. Check the fuel lines
      7. Replacing all the cables.
      8. New wiring harness


      Yes Sid, the vehicle is in good condition and the engine also is neat but not in start condition. Opened the engine head looks good, not much of sludge but the pistions r damaged any ways engine has Low compression which I got it checked before only and I am planning to change half engine.

      I paid around 1.40 lac including registration . The vehicle will be first registered on the scrap dealers name , and later I have to transfer on my name. The scrap dealer says it's a regular work for him and can get it done in a week.

      Vijjukrishna This is one of my dream project intended to do in my life. Hope this thread would be a reference.

      Use the aftermarket protective equipments like.

      Fuel Tank Skidplate ,Gypsy Winch Bumper,Heavy Duty Rock Slider,Dog Bone Shackles,Transfer Case protection with Craddle ,Limb Riser ,Snorkel Pipe if you are in to offroading which reduce the unwanted damages also.

      This is my suggestion only.

      Snorkel brings with it its own set of problems as I've heard people say it allows more dust to pass through. If water fording is not planned / is a remote chance, I wouldn't bet too high on having a snorkel.
