Dear Rana Sahib.
As I said earlier, you have a right to an opinion, as flawed and prejudiced it maybe. I respect your right of opinion, despite the language and similes used in that opinion. I also honor your right of opinion, inspite of the fact that you have taken a stab at my taste, people of frontier, poor truckers, rickshaw and bus owners. I don't have intimate knowledge nor first hand experience with street pros nor londees, so I cannot respond to you on that.
I can take a joke as long as it is delivered tastefully and with respect to all. I cannot accept a joke when it is on the expense of someone, in this case the people of frontier.
I suggest that you visit http://www.landrovernet.com/forum/showthread.php?t=57164 and read the comments made by hard core land rover defender enthusiast and owners to understand the British view on it.
Mics, Portagel , Faysall, thanks for the appreciation and feed back.
Faysall for the time being I am done with the modifications. Down the line I will surely seek your advise if I do something else to it. Right now its time to enjoy it (-:
I do agree that the back lights may be bit too much, but I since they are up I will keep them up.
The front 5 cab roof lights were inspired from Hummer and other American SUVS, as such lights are often found on many SUVs in the US.
The black checkered plating is something very unique to Land Rover Defenders. Many Defender owners put these up to protect their vehicles from minor dents and blings.
They are put on the bonnet and the wings so that you can climb on top it to view the horizon / terrain / scenery...whatever it is that you may want to see. In case my land rover it is purely for ornamental purposes.
However the plating on the door sills is very much functional as it protects the body against dents caused by shoes, boots, slippers etc of passengers / driver climbing in and out of the jeep.
