Restoring MM540 4x4 Jeep (army auctioned)

I have a very interesting assignment at my workshop. One of my clients wants an army auctioned MM540 4x4 restored and rebuild to look like Mahindra Thar.

When I started with this JOB, I took it as a regular job. But then as soon as I had dismantled the MM540 for bodyshop de-denting job, I came up with this idea of cataloging this JOB Work.

The following Pics are from day 3 after de-construction/dismantling was done and Denting and welding job was underway.

I will keep posting pics on daily basis on the progress of this project.

DAY 4 to come.......
