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…
Eric’s S15 – looking great on the Work TR7’s in bronze from afar
Jackie’s ITR with an aggressive C-West bumper, custom made splitter, and Top1 Motors cnaards.
Front shot of the aggressive set up. This car has come a long way…
Arif’s new ProjectMu BBK set up he revealed at the show.
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
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.
Alex’s EM1 wheel/brake combo – Endless/Volk – beautiful combo.
And some new ProjectMu stoppers for his Integra.
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.
A shot of the aggressive bronze ZE40’s in face 4. Drooooool
Attention to detail with Varis parts as expected. Everything on this car is just perfect. I may be biased though…
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.
On the inside, a set of Bride Gias, cage, Limited Suede Vertex wheel. Just perfection.
Also under the hood – a very clean K-swap.
The Nighthawk Black was absolutely stunning under that direct sun. If anything looked good under that sun that day, it was this.
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.
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.
David’s bagged IS on Weds Vishunu’s. Another great looking set of wheels paired nicely.
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.
Back end of the RB V2 BRZ.
Another shot of David’s IS tucking hard in the rear.
Front end shot of Nick’s GT3.
And a better shot of his Voltex wing. Looks great
Jack’s LS-swapped Silvia.
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
TE37’s on this 4Runner. It is the season of TE37 it seems. Better than the season of Rota… I can’t complain!
Damn I loved this so much!!
Another shot of Ryan’s Ferrari on Work Meisters. The combo of Italian and Japanese – no complaints here.
Kasem’s Amuse S2000
Ryan’s other red chariot – the infamous MR2
Michael’s RX7 looking very good as always
Caught this photoshoot going on during my walk lol
A better shot of Errol’s Rize Japan LED tail lights for those that wanted to see a better shot.
My fave. ❤
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
Landon’s beautiful RB 240SX with great paint and body work by Nick Prah.
And the RX7 of the man himself – Nick Prah. Beautiful colour and awesome execution.
My piece. Whatever.
I got hot so I stayed in the tent and shot whatever I could… lol
The trophies for those that didn’t get a chance to look at them. Very awesome this year.
Titanium Mugen badge on Alex’s EM1… whaaaaaat
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.
Miata’s are always cool – this one was clean on Meister 2PC’s
I went out with my wide one more time… Jackie’s ITR
Carlo’s WRX fitted with Varis all around and TE37’s
One more shot of Landon’s RB 240SX
And of course the RB 350Z – another great masterpiece that comes from Nick Prah.
Richard’s Mustang on Work CR Ultimates
Needs no introduction…
Kay’s widebodyy GTR laying low
Another shot of Charlie’s Supra
Curtis’s Silvia on Work CR2P in the VEX booth
Datsun 240Z duo
Another great contender at the show was this widebody RX7. Rare to see this gen so mint.
The family squad. Jackson’s bagged Sienna, Nick’s FJ, and Andy’s 4Runner
Another of Nick’s GT3
Can’t get enough of this.
My piece. Whatever.
Awards time! Instead of posting all the winners – I’ll just say congratulations to all of you. Well deserved!
And in no time, the table and prizes are cleared out – thanks to everyone who came out and made it another great show. Looking forward to next year!
