What Land Rover corp should really go after

There should be international laws dictating what you can and can't do to NAS trucks

This is in Austin? If I had time I should go check it out.
But I just got off a flight from Mexico and packing to drive up to Dallas for the Alabama USC football game.

There ARE laws against what one can do to vehicles here. It just isn't feasible or even reasonable for any agency to check in on NAS owners to see if they've modified their trucks. So, you'll always have NAS 90s that somehow have the wheelbase of a 110/130 on a shiny new chassis. Multi-tone paint jobs and the like are just preference and what seems to be selling.

That's a Peerless truck. I think they went out of business. Correct me if im wrong.

Had a pretty nice facility in Wilmington. I stopped in there once to get pickup a burned out headlight switch when i was passing through a last year.

Doesnt really look like it would take much to make it look normal again. Paint the bonnet, and headlight surrounds?
