It may be metal, but don't do a Series 2 with it and use it to BBQ.

A friend of mine who's a junior pro drifter does a bunch of LS /LS turbo builds mentioned it was likely a LS2/3 but kind of hard to tell.

I'm talking about them working on a Defender. He posted a few teaser pics a while back but I've never seen the finished truck.

personally, I love his work and appreciate his attention to detail. I understand its not for everyone.

I agree- I love the ICON work. Keeps the iconic image while improving on the vehicle.

I saw this posted yesterday. Looks like they are pretty close on it. I wonder what heater they're running.

I'm curious to see what they do to the interior. That is usually what I feel sets his work apart. Stuffing engines and axles and a few one of billet gizmos don't do it for me.
