It is super neat, no doubt about that, but a LR fan was missing on this built.
Something's not right, I don't know what.

They have produced some pretty trucks in the past, no doubt. But the gratituitous use of green masking tape during assembly bothers me.

And although I know some like the dash, it just looks clunky and homemade...

That is probably done to prevent scratches etc when working on it.. We often do that with cardboard or something else...it also allows you to draw, design where you would like other things like maybe tow hooks or loghts etc..

It's to prevent scratches on accessories as they are fitting up the build. It's a quality thing ...

The dash is okay...but for the price they are asking, I would expect a lot better. Very little functionality.

Does that intake have open filters? In an off road truck? For the cost of these things, I would expect better than OE on all fronts.

The offset spare looks silly to me. Everything about it looks cheap to me. Its as if someone took a Defender to a local 4x4 shop that specialises in Jeeps with an unlimited budget and let them go to town. I never thought I'd say this, but I'd much prefer a Himalaya truck.

Its a little S3 like, but apart from the shiny bits I'm thumbs up. No point losing the BH vents.

Yeah I know exactly why they do it, but there are other ways to do it. We use the same vinyl they wrap new cars with. It is non adhesive, you can draw on it, and it applies faster and is less expensive than masking tape.
