illmotion Sunday School Show & Shine: Part 5

The final part to my Sunday School coverage – it’s been a long 5 days of editing but we’re finally here. This last post is more just extras – I took my 50mm out and took some shots at a different perspective. As nice as wide photos are to get the whole car, sometimes it can get a tad old. I spent the last hour or so just walking around and taking what I could until I just couldn’t stand the heat anymore.

There may also be a few photos of cars in this last batch that I was able to capture that I didn’t last time if I remembered… Once again, thank you to the guys at illmotion for putting on another great show, congratulations to all the winners, and thank you to the weather for holding out on us for another awesome year. Enjoy the last batch!

The tent was bumpin’ for most of the day…

Front shot of the aggressive set up. This car has come a long way…

IMG_9836 copy

Arif’s new ProjectMu BBK set up he revealed at the show.

IMG_9838 copy

Alex’s new contender for this year – K-swapped EM1, retrofitted headlights, First Molding carbon lip… This has also come a long way in a very short amount of time. Alex wastes no time…

A shot of the EM1 engine bay

IMG_9841 copy

And beside that, is Alex’s Integra – an engine bay that’s no stranger to those that have been around for the last few years.

IMG_9842 copy

Alex’s EM1 wheel/brake combo – Endless/Volk – beautiful combo.

IMG_9843 copy

And some new ProjectMu stoppers for his Integra.

IMG_9844 copy

My god, this car still amazes me at how much it has changed since the last time I took a photo of it. I was tagged in an Instagram post yesterday and I didn’t even clue in. It used to be white with carbon fenders and TE37SL’s – fairly basic. Now it is just beastly.

IMG_9846 copy

A shot of the aggressive bronze ZE40’s in face 4. Drooooool

IMG_9848 copy

Attention to detail with Varis parts as expected. Everything on this car is just perfect. I may be biased though…

IMG_9850 copy

Concave goodness.

IMG_9852 copy

Aldo’s S2000 with an ASM bumper that debuted at Driven this year.

Good shot of the lineup for Balance Auto Garage.

I think the best of show had to be Josh’s EG6. If there’s one thing that’s rare to see around here – it’s a build that is literally from the ground up. I – as well as most of you I’m sure – have had the pleasure of seeing this come together through social media. It’s gone through being just an empty shell, to slowly getting paint, and we watched it go from rolling metal to what you see here.

The whole car is painted in Nighthawk Black – a very nice OEM Honda colour that has some blue flake in it. It’s 3M’d all the way around, and everything stays true to every Honda fanboys visioins. A nice set of bronze TE37’s, Spoon brakes, Spoon carbon mirrors… The list just goes on.

IMG_9931 copy

On the inside, a set of Bride Gias, cage, Limited Suede Vertex wheel. Just perfection.

IMG_9927 copy

Also under the hood – a very clean K-swap.

IMG_9926 copy

The Nighthawk Black was absolutely stunning under that direct sun. If anything looked good under that sun that day, it was this.

IMG_9856 copy

Not too far away was Levi’s freshly finished RB V2 BRZ. Another stunning example of great body work, great parts, and good pairing of parts. An aggressive set of bronze/bronze Work Meister 3PC match the dark grey metallic very well.

IMG_9858 copy

From afar. As abundant as RB’s are, it’s rare to see one well put together. It’s either trashed, fake, or half-assed. Thank you Levi for doing this right.

IMG_9954 copy

David’s bagged IS on Weds Vishunu’s. Another great looking set of wheels paired nicely.

IMG_9859 copy

I’m glad I got this shot. I’m pretty sure he was wondering how the hell this all worked. He was pretty intrigued lol.

IMG_9864 copy

Back end of the RB V2 BRZ.

IMG_9867 copy

Another shot of David’s IS tucking hard in the rear.

Jack’s LS-swapped Silvia.

IMG_9871 copy

This dude – I think it was John, who owns the 4-door GTR with Funky garage – was running around for a bit lol. Never  thought I’d get to see this costume in person haha

IMG_9874 copy

TE37’s on this 4Runner. It is the season of TE37 it seems. Better than the season of Rota… I can’t complain!

IMG_9875 copy

Damn I loved this so much!!

IMG_9878 copy

Another shot of Ryan’s Ferrari on Work Meisters. The combo of Italian and Japanese – no complaints here.

IMG_9895 copy

My fave. ❤

IMG_9896 copy

IMG_9897 copy

Simon’s FRS. I’ve come to the conclusion that all red cars look amazing but I don’t think I could own a red car. I love shooting them though.

Side note – I do see the resemblance to Magikarp with this bumper. I always saw Simon hashtagging it and now I understand haha

IMG_9900 copy

IMG_9901 copy

Landon’s beautiful RB 240SX with great paint and body work by Nick Prah.

I got hot so I stayed in the tent and shot whatever I could… lol

IMG_9915 copy

Titanium Mugen badge on Alex’s EM1… whaaaaaat

IMG_9914 copy

IMG_9919 copy

I’m sure plenty of cars in the parking lot were worthy as well. A few that were nearby while I was cooling off – this GS was pretty clean and I think lady driven.

IMG_9920 copy

Miata’s are always cool – this one was clean on Meister 2PC’s

IMG_9924 copy

I went out with my wide one more time… Jackie’s ITR

IMG_9936 copy

Carlo’s WRX fitted with Varis all around and TE37’s
