Is LRNA pressuring you to remove them or is it your choice?

LRNA is absolutely ridiculous.

By choice, LRNA has done nothing but attach and belittle all shops in the US. Why should people advertise work that LRNA could never have done?

that way when people say is that a Jeep? "no it's a Himalaya"

And it's not all 20s and defenders, you should see what can be done with a classic series Rover. It's one for the rover purists as it combines the best Rover products into one 45 year old package.

No. We don't use there name in any of our branding.

The same as Hennessey, Roush, Saleen, and other tuners remove the emblems from the vehicles they modify.

In fact I was at the LR dealership yesterday to pick up a few quickly needed items (sorry Stephen, Justin, RN, I was in a rush)
I had several shop techs and sales guys humping the fender.

The GM wanted to go for a ride. Scared the hell out of him. 0-80 in about 6 seconds. He wants one in his showroom. hah.
He has been asking for a while.

Seems like it would be natural progress Series 1, series2, series 3, Defender, series X.

I guess I'm a soft touch to tradition...

Xseries Pronounced X Series. It means cross series.

We are buildingXseries and Xseries classic which I will start a thread.

The differences between the two are much.
The Classic will still look vintage but upgraded to new style power group and interior creature comfort.
The XSeries will be hybrid.

Gotcha.

I think your shop does a great job elevating the defender icon. Good work!

Absolutely! Couldn't agree more...

A few more "Sandys" Colorado floods, Nor'easters and rust should keep a nice price floor
on the relatively few that remain...

Go Himalaya...

I had a chance to stop by there shop the other week and took these pictures for those who are not in to the ls engine swap and rims. They do other work as well. This 109 had a 4.2 v8, auto, disco brakes. It was very nicely done.

Nearing completion.
We still have the center console to complete and a few other smaller items. Then she is ready for testing. We are quite pleased with how it looks.

I think we're missing Series V...or Defender V...and a few others before getting to the X; but who is counting?

No not on this one. Modern brakes. Changing the steering is a character change. She was a 6 cylinder nada. Hence the name Nadia
