Another FL Defender on CL

My New Year's resolution to stay off CL doesn't seem to be working...

Rear wheels look like crap in the arches ... Needs another 2 inches cut out of the chassis ...

The truck has no heater. For $20K - I expect to stay warm.

I'd imagine an air filter would be nice too.

I agree...it's a shame to do all that work only to leave something that big looking so bad.

I supplied the parts for this truck and have driven it several times. Guy that built it is a Brit who runs the local independant LR workshop.

Great truck.

Great truck.
But he clearly needs to go to Sears and buy a measuring tape.

Thats been up on eBay numerous times I think and had no takers. All it really needs is a trim of the rear wheel arches a little. The Series trucks didnt have their wheels centered in the wells either. They hugged the front big time. Its a cool looking build. Its in Florida so why would he care about a heater? As for an air filter: $30 and you can have one. Its not that big of a deal. The hard part is the cutting down and fitting of the body onto the chassis and hes done it. I bet its a fun truck.

I'm not trying to bash the truck, but the way I see it,

1. For $20k your expectations are (and should be) higher than say $10k.
2. If he couldn't bother putting on a $30 air filter or cleaning the engine, what non-obvious stuff didn't he bother doing?
