This is all kinds of awesome.
Before we get started. I’ll just put this out there.
I really dig the new STI. I like it A LOT!. I love when something gets released and the car nerds of the internet cry foul. It cracks me up to no end. Grown men instantly turn into fucking babies as their beloved favorite car evolves into something that doesn’t worry about their narrow minded views. I’m ready to sell everything and get one. LOL! Anyway, My good friend Rob Shaw who resides in Japan sent over these great pics of the new Subaru STI in race form and it just solidified for me how awesome this car can look with some tender loving tuning care.
I recently got a email from a long time follower of the blog. Steve Warren. He has always supported the blog and the store for years. I recognized his name immediately when he emailed me recently. I just wanted to show off his car. it’s pretty tight. All legit. Good stuff. Thanks for the email Steve !

When I was over at Fatlace I did this awhile back. They finally released it on tees and sweatshirts. This was is one of my fav drawings. Please support my homies over at Fatlace and grab one on their online store. Thank you.
I didn’t have to many SEMA projects this year to deal with but I ended doing this render for Gordon Ting. Just a nice and clean new IS F-Sport. I dug how this came out. The drawing of that grill almost put me in the nuthouse though. LOL! Hope to see this in the flesh at SEMA this week.
I can’t even count how many SCION FR-S I have drawn this past year but here is probably my favorite one for Mackin who is the Gram Lights Distributor for the US. These will be out soon. Not sure if they will be for sale or not.
It’s been my busiest year yet. Thanks to everyone who i worked with. I appreciate the business and the friendships.
CRAZY. last week was just plain crazy. From the previous post you know that the FR-s was at Evasive. I now have some really nice shots Evasive took of the car which I will post in this blog. Between getting the car back home in time for The Chronicles V anniversary meet. Trying to set everything up to get engaged at The Chronicles V meet to my lovely girlfriend of 9 years. I’m a mess. Knocking out my daily job between all the madness and now scrambling to get work done to maybe go check out SEMA this week. Yay and stuff.
Here are the pics I promised. I have to Thank everyone at Evasive, Mackin,and Emergency Hookers for getting everything done on time. They even managed to get the New Leather Recaro Pole position seats in at the last minute before Emergency Hookers arrived to get the new and improved beast back to me.
Thanks for everyones help ! It is appreciated. True friends.
A little recap of what went down at Evasive.
1. Craft Square carbon GT mirrors
2. Cleib Rear carbon Diffuser
3. Driveshaft shop Carbon drive shaft.
4. Project MU brakes front and rear, 4 piston fronts and 2 piston rears. These things are straight amazing. Had fun bedding them in Friday. night.
5. Recaro Leather Pole Position seats. This was super last minute and cost me a small fortune. Would Like to say I HATE Mike Chang of Evasive for talking me into these. LOL! Thanks for the hookup Mike.
Car is not done but this is about it for this year. Next year we start figuring out the motor and some small things in the interior. Thanks for looking everyone !
Of couse when the pics were posted on a forum some douchebag was wondering why not much has been done to the motor. these things take time and series money to do right people. Jeez.
Great shot of the under side of the car. You can see a lot of my money went into suspension work. I think this is the best part of the FR-S and I really wanted it to be right. Shout out to Chris over at KW and Cusco USA for all their help in getting the right parts for the job. And before yoou email the question it is a Arqray exhaust. You can also see the rear Project MU 2 piston brakes.
A huge thank you to Eddie at Mackin for making this brake setup happen. Couldn’t be more happy with the Brakes. Absolutely beautiful. They work pretty damn good to. LOL! There you have it. More to come.
