Deathlens x H2Oi 2012 part 1

This man has had to go through 40gbs of video and photos.  It’s been worth the wait IMO.  We’ll also post them in 2 halves.   Altogether H20i 2012 was an awesome time.  Still more pics on the way!!
Wagon fever.  So many this year. I THINK, this one had the WAGONE plate.  🙂

Mmmm, yes.  -_-

MAXWGN….Joe C from Canibeat.

Battle reday CRX.

Still not a fan of the new Passats but bags and beebs are persuasive.

S2k, creepin in.

IMPORTEXPO 2012

IMPORTEXPO is upon us again.  October 13th, it will be held indoors at Markhams Fairgrounds.  The event features selected cars from registrants.  So, you won’t be seeing shitty vehicles.  IMPORTEXPO’s own NSX is reason alone to go to the show.  We’ll be providing coverage for those who are unable to attend.  Also there will be

Scraped.Crusaders.Shop.

We’ve decided to create on online store for our stickers and T-shirts.  The T-shirts are made with American Apparel t-shirts.  And as of now are a super limited run (6).  These are not the run of the mill Gilden shirts.  Trying to feel out the demand.  If you would like a completly custom shirt (size, shirt colour, ink colour, and cut) feel free to email at scrapedcrusaders@gmail.com.

The stickers are also on a small limited run.  We’re currently out of the banners though.

Scraped Rollers.

On our way to Eurocracy.  We rolled with Chop Shop  for a bit.  It was a legit convoy.  Pics by the Mad Hatter’s lady.

We are the Scraped.Crusaders.

We are the Scraped.Crusaders. More than just a blog.  It consists of a core group of individuals that have grown into more of a family.  Originating in Toronto on the VWVortex forums, with low VWs and the penchant to scrape lips anywhere and everywhere; the name is very fitting (though obviously not limited to VAGs).  I may be biased when saying this but, Toronto has one of the best stance scenes in the game.  Especially when you consider the frost heaved, pothole, salt ridden roads of Southern Ontario.  Rolling hard for 6 months of the year, then winter beating for the other half is a tough task.

While it was the cars are what brought us together, it’s the friendships that make us stay.  At the end of the day, friends are what the car community is all about.  Is it worth it to build an e-famous car if you don’t have real friends to share it with?  Fuck no.  With late nights in the shop, even later nights fixing cars on the side of freeways, watching movies, bonfires, birthdays, photo-shoots, meets, events, it’s money and time well wasted.  We’re sure many of you can relate.  We’re together so often we’ve even begun dressing alike. 🙂   The decision to make t-shirts was an easy one.  They were initially just made for the core group.  But for those interested, you can email scrapedcrusaders@gmail.com.  Custom coloured American Apparel tees FTW!!!

These pictures are something we’ve been wanting to do for a long time.  Some models (dude in purple hat, we had to pay to pose), some beebs, some e30 and some SR20.  Steve’s E30 has been on the mend for a few months now.  A spun bearing (after the first swap was done) turned this winter project into a summer project.  Having the first run around with the SR lasting only a month or so a fresh rebuild was called upon.   While primarily a stock SR, it’s got a manual boost controller and a big front mount to turn things up to ’11’.  All of the work including splicing the entire Nissan and BMW harness together, building custom coilovers and shaving the bay were done by the Dutchman; Steve, himself.  This is only the first round of  pics of this e30.  Expect to see more of it this year.

Scraped.Crusaders.  in search of the lowly grail.
