Scraped.Crusaders. X Eurokracy Kruise

Eurokrac2yThis idea came about pretty fast.  After viewing an Air Society post about Eurokracy’s Hotel of choice.  I mentioned the Scraped.Crusaders.  contingency of 20 or so people strong.  Rick from Air Society quickly replied with an “if you organize it, they will come” proposal for a Toronto to Montreal cruise. So…. we’re doing it.

Precision Rim Repair.

We like shinny things.  When Geoff and I decided to get our wheels refinished we wanted to have the best.  I’ve always been impressed with Dave’s (of Stanceiseverything.com) Works.  So I went to the shop responsible for polishing them.   Precision Rim Repair.  They are more than just a polishing shop.  They correct bends, re weld cracks, sandblast, strip, and overall perform miracles on damaged wheels.  While dropping the wheels off Ric found a crack on one of my barrels.  Fortunately, I was already at the right place.  It was welded up while the set was getting polished.  Geoff`s LM`s are currently getting a polish job too.  Along with a few dents straightened.
Pics of my beebs soon.  This preview will do for now/  😉pre16

Winter Grime

Grimey, can also be used to describe these pics.  I thought I’d take those cool closeup shots of wheels before a rebuild.  They look like crap.  AS do the wheels right now.  Soon to be mirror polished lips at Precision Rim Repair. Faces are staying copper. 🙂  Will be posting pics of the results.  Will have to step up my closeup wheel pics game.wheel3

Portraits of CIAS 2013

I’ve found the Autoshow to provide great photo opportunities.  Unfortunately, the background ruins a lot of the shots.  I’ve tried to go for up close photos to fix that.  Practice, practice, practice.  I honestly didn’t think I’d be uploading my own photos as much as I have lately.  More to come!!

CIAS 2013 – Audi

Geoff owns an Audi.  This if the first batch of photos he uploaded.  Not surprised at all.

RS7. This car is a monster.  Designed to compete with the M6 Gran Coupe and CLS AMG.  It’s a hard choice but if money was no option I’d take the BMW….I’m a fan boy and it looks better.

S8. The big dog.  No R needed, it has the same mill as the RS7.  Q ship.

Red Devil RS5.  Audi went with a simple red and white pallete for their vehicles.  Does it really matter though?  The RS5 always looks good.

A4 AllRoad. Jayson has a hardon for the Allroad.                       As do I.  🙂8479372619_f97ecab5ba_h 8480471322_a50fd603a0_hThink we’ve hit the ceiling with the R8.  It doesn’t have the wow factor it once had.  Luckily the next gen isn’t far off.


Shenanigans …..In Video.

Hey Farva…what’s the name of that restaurant you like with all the goofy shit?  Video shot and edited my Matt Morana.

Snow Shenanigans

We haven’t had any photo shoots as a group this winter.  We decided to gather 5 MK2s and do what we do.  But before that some of us watched Dredd at Matt’s house.  Verdict:  The movie is awesome.

It took us a while before we realized the higher levels all had snow.  As SOON as we hit the top…..we needed shovels.  By we I mean everyone without a Subaru :).  Even Matt needed help.  In his defense, he went looking for a big mound of snow.

The top level was pretty much a small oval, with LOTS of snow.  I for one had lots of fun.  And by the looks of it, Matt Morana did too.feb27

I’ll try to post up some of the video we took.  Thanks for coming out guys, was a good Saturday.

Snow Day

This was the worst snow Toronto has had in 5-6 years.  Definaetely the most snow the Subie has driven though.  I for one did not have a bad day.   Cut through snow like no ones business.  Only set back was from a snow plow bank.

Pirelli Wintersports are MUCH better than the Goodyear Nordics I had last year.

Frozen Friday.

Took a few shots of the wagon after work.  Photos are a work in progress for me.  I’d like to hear some critiques, if you have time to spare.  Cheers. 🙂 scraped

Winter Duds

Went to Seven Automotive (we’ll do a proper feature on them later) to get my steering U-joint fixed.  So I took the opportunity to take pics of the winterbeater.  Recently got a camera and am using every chance I get to take photos.  Still an amateur.  As for the Subie, I got the Works on finally.  16×7 Mesh E-Wings.  They’re missing the waffles, but they make a nice winter set.  She really needs a wash.  The wagon below….it runs 12s.
