For sure some of his builds are over the top but so are the clients he is delivering them for! Whether I like his product or not is irrelevant, but respect the man on his craftsmanship and build qualities bc there are only a few companies that deliver a product at his level period, and I guarantee that anyone on this forum was able to see what I got to see your pants would get just as tight as mine did! Everyone is entitled to their opinion, I appreciate Mark sharing his product with the forum.
Agree with this 100% - I'd like to see more posts of his builds myself.

Although not a Defender, his FJ45 Troopy resto-mod is one of the coolest creations I've ever seen.

I agree. The troopie is bad ass. Not totally what I would want, but you can tell the work is top notch. If I had the money and wanted a truck built they would be my first call. He is building these trucks for clients that want all the stuff that you guys don't like. From what I have seen he could build you what you want to your specs if you had the money to afford it. I would have him take the attention to detail his shop has and build me a truck to my taste and I would put it up against anybody's work. I like the more old school look and would love to see a build they have done for somebody with that look.

I just realized it: there are only two that have actually served in that video and it's the Tithonus trucks.

Will photograph all the parts for sale tomorrow. We also have lots of doors. Front, middle and rear doors.
All Himalayas have new doors, so even VG condition doors are removed and sold.

3 of the guys are ex Army and Marines who served in Iraq. I am not a gun expert, and in defense of your screen shot movie blooper of the missing clip, that shot was the first one from the story board to be filmed. Not everyone was ready, and he just grabbed a gun without checking. No clips were put in weapons until checked by the gun handler, who was in makeup at the time. But thanks for your input there Siskel and Ebert.

Would have been far more interesting if you had some skilled Russian "soldiers"

Again, we appreciate the craftsmanship (maybe not the style), but that video is going to get crucified here with all us actual military types and purists. Undoubtedly, the target audience will rave about it though and that is what matters at the end of the day.

Himalaya - you are going to need thicker skin if you expect posting these vids and not get any comments. For the target market (like SMac said), the video is well done. For D-90 board members, you are going to get some razing. The style of your builds aren't my thing but they look well done and your shop is crazy clean. Post more about the build process and how you guys handle things like electrics and interior on here and I'm guessing people will respond a little differently.

If I was that limber, kick the bolt back before the clip.

Still would end up with a round in the chamber in that order. The magazine will probably shove one in quicker than you can get to the second kick.

Well, There are lots of clerks and cooks in the Corps who deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan, that doesn't qualify them as "door kickers".

It's a commercial not a training video. I don't think you are selling a basic tactics qualification along side your trucks so who cares. Its just fun, maybe nostalgic, for those who have a tactical background to criticize these little things because thats what we did back in the day.

As long as we are dissecting things those rifles use magazines not clips.
Yes there is a big difference and no they are not interchangeable.
Kind of like when laypeople call your Defender a Scout or a Bronco.
