What's with the spacers ... trying to re-create this vintage look?

Well Mark as someone who advises companies on this sort of brand recognition stuff I have to ask the question....who do you think you are appealing to with this video?? 'Nuf said.... I can't believe I am going to say this ...but.... Bring back the wanker with the hat, binoculars and shotgun

One of a kind truck. So many details that make that a well restored truck. The undershot speaks volumes. And man that v8 sounds awesome.

Why is it that the biggest critics always seem to be the wanna bees that can't do it themselves. Cheers for your input poser. I'm sure the Himalaya team will take your comment to heart. Bloody hell......,
Neat video, I like the truck a lot. I am jumping in with everyone else on the spacers though. If they could have kept the wheels under the flares I would have liked the execution better.

Mumm n dad welcome to the forum. Don't worry everyone here wont think you came across as being a giant douche, just most people.

great and well done video. Truck looks great EXCEPT the wheels. I'll bet they would be popular with the starting lineup of the Lakers or Bulls though.

No harm. No foul. Our new friend is welcome here ... A bit of time reading some old posts and he'll get the gist of the site.

Everyone has something to offer and I guess it was just a snap response to reading a few threads.

Everyone please put the guns away ... :-)

My guess is that the regulars of this site are not the demographic that Himalaya goes after. I don't see any reason in belittling his work on a forum. To me it's not a very honorable thing to do among enthusiasts.

It's constructive feedback - with a bit of humor.

The work is clearly to a very high standard ... We just aren't keen on the wheel spacing. It's a minor thing and as a professional outfit knowing what people think of your product is vital to success.

This site is populated by enthusiasts and I'm sure himalaya are happy to have a bit of discussion and banter around their product.

I think it is more like we are (goofy) art critics, you look at Mark's work and it is truly, truly ART. But FnA I hate those rims and low profile tires.

From the video the lug pattern looks like later land rover and not the larger defender disco 1 pattern. So my guess is they're wheel adapters.

To those who post positive comments and have sent many pms I thank you for your comments and support.

I shared this video for entertainment, not expecting contemptuous mockery from a forum is supposed to be a fellowship of enthusiasts to help each other out and enjoy Land Rovers. The majority of posts on this thread (and others) seem quite negative instead of just enjoying it as entertainment. If you have something better to offer lets see what you have.

I wasn't going to comment but you guys keep going on about the wheel choice. Appreciate your opinion but thats what it is, your opinion.
Its one thing to see photos on line, its quite different seeing it in person. Wheel choice and spacing looks appropriate for the size and lift of truck, otherwise I wouldn't run them. Low profile tires? Actually the same rubber on the sidewall as 16 inch rims. May I suggest ophthalmic exam. So give it a rest.

Everyone has different tastes. We also build stock Defenders, but thats nothing new, so I don't spend money on advertising them. No one shows off their average work. I have a talented team of professional guys in my shop and we are quite busy building trucks for appreciative clients

As for what people think of our product related to our business success. You are not my clients. I think I know my market and how to sell my product more than you. To quote a good friend "My credit comes in the form of Grants and Jeffersons".

Ask me again about posting a Land Rover build thread. Hmm... whats in it for me? Insults?
Why would I have any desire to share insight, new ideas, resolutions to problems, new products, new concepts, and a surplus of great used items with such a group of negative people. (those with decency excluded)
I see many of you ask for help moving things across the country. We have our own transport driver, and several storage facilities, here and in UK with containers of parts in transit regularly from overseas. Should I suggest helping you out?
We have a plethora of used takeoff parts that are in great condition for the average truck but not up to Himalaya standards. There are a few guys who know about this little treasure collection and have purchased thousands of dollars worth at super cheap prices. So insulting me kind of cuts you off the friendship perks list doesn't it?

I also contribute to the iH8MUD forum for custom LandCruiser builds. I posted a build thread there on a rare truck to share with others with the same interest what can be done that was highly appreciated.

http://forum.ih8mud.com/fj45-owners-...super-mod.html

One last comment re the wanker with the hat and gun from a previous Series Landrover ad. Well, truth is I can sell a truck almost instantly, while I see many of your vehicles for sale for months. Ever wonder why? Could it be I know something your don't?
