DIY – Building A-Pillar Tweeter Pods

It’s been a while since my last DIY so I’ve decided to build some a-pillar tweeter pods for my Kicker tweeters.

1. My first step was to get the correct angle. The set of tweeters that I’ve bought came with various fittings making the building process a bit easier.

2. I stuck the fittings to the pillars using hot glue. After the glue has dried I made sure that the angle on both mounts was exactly the same.

3. I proceeded to mix up some body filler and started spreading it all around …

This must be one of the craziest photo shoots ever!

We’ve been planning this “ATL Toyz vs MK1” shoot for a while now and when our man Granville Syme gave the thumbs up we went in full force.

BMW E30 Enthusiasts Shoot

Last week Wednesday I’ve received a phone call from the Dawg Father, Shahiem Bell, asking if I will be available to do an E30 photo shoot. Before I could give an answer the phone line went dead. I later found out that he was calling from a phonebooth, just outside his workplace in Sea Point. So on Sunday morning about 30 plus boxies and some crazy photographers rolled through to Link Road in Montaque Gardens. The weather was awesome. I came a bit late and almost missed out on the …

Spring Stance 2012 Edition

So, to keep the peace the event organizers decided to host it in a safe environment. This annual event took place at Buren High School in Brooklyn on Saturday 27 …
