Gypsy- Work in Progress III (WIP-III)

Now when the body was removed from the chassis and the pictures of the preparation of the chassis were uploaded in the previous posts the big task of the battered body work are in enclosed in this update.

Also to be noted that thought I am updating the entire set of pictures in one post, this entire job took well over 2 whole months to complete. Part of the delay was that we all got busy in Desert Storm 2011 in which, naturally everyone was involved. Anyways better late than never.

      Hey Ravi, I’m no expert but off hand I remember that I changed the complete engine, wiring harness, fuel pump & fuel tank. Rest I’ll advise you to get in touch with an experienced restorer in your city and do the needful.
