Wrapping presents…….The 3M and JD way

So if like us you have the attention span of a goldfish and get bored the moment your car is finished, or you simply aren’t brave enough to paint your car the colour you REALLY want it the wrapping your car is the answer.

3m  http://solutions.3m.co.uk/wps/portal/3M/en_GB/3M-/vehicle-wrapping/    have developed a huge and exciting range of new colours including some fantastic Matte colours we put to good use last year……

We thought it was unfair not to treat our Low Road  to a  covering of  3M Matte Purple Metallic again applied by J_D Wraps in Chelmsford..
Don’t be put off by thinking that it only suits new age cars because after being told it couldn’t be done with the help of 3M and J_D we wrapped our 76″ mk1 golf in 3M Matte Red Metallic, not only did it totally change the dynamic of the car but also completely protected the freshly applied paint.

Once again this year we are teaming up with 3M on our project cars including something a little special for Ultimate Dubs…….

Then last saturday we were sent this picture of the rear buck sitting onto of a pair of 14″ Lotus Eclat wheels and the rear frame……this shows just how much of a notch its gonna take!!!!

We are in safe hands with Matt and the boys as there really is no one better in the UK for this type of work..

A few hours later and this pic arrived………

So the body is getting closer to the gravel so best we order some wheel’s……..Well some custom ROTIFORM’s will be getting made for this in the summer so in the meantime we needed get the truck rolling so we went for some steels……….But don’t panic these won’t be staying stock for long as the boys at  http://www.thepaintbox.co.uk/ will be working their magic on these….

Next up will be the interior………

Players Classic 7th June 2014…….

So we are back again this year and we will be going even  bigger than last year…….

After bringing over Fredric Aasbo and Mad Mike to drift the virgin Tarmac of Goodwood we have once again teamed up with the guys at  Airlift Performance and Speedhunters to put together another spectacular event.

We will of course be hosting the countries most exclusive modified show and shine brought together with Meguiars to highlight the cream of the car world.

 

From  60’s classic unto turbo’d R8’s all manner of vehicle’s will be on display along with a few new additions and surprises for this year.

Players-SK-06

It will once again be a pre selected entrance to the paddock and registration will open on ……………10.02.2014.

Please do not send any applications in until this date as they will not be seen by us.

Dont panic there are still more ways to get your pride and joy into the show even if you don’t make the Paddock and we will release these before the application date.

Keep checking back for more updates…

MK2 JDM STYLE BODYKIT BLOWS UP THE NET

If you even the slightest interest in MK2 Golfs you will surely have seen the pics of the fantastic new fender flares and one piece duckbill being produced by Rocket Bunny and soon to be available through our good friends over at Rotiform.

We know how hard it is to do anything remotely new or fresh to the Mk2 Golf but this has certainly got a lot of people excited!!

The 1 piece “duckbill” style front spoiler is a stroke of genius as owners of Mk2’s have often had to cut up and fit mk1 Duckbills to achieve this look, not anymore!!!!

We for one cannot wait to get our hands on one!!!!!

WORTHERSEE TOUR 2014……ITS ON

So with the new year upon us it was time to get our annual pilgrimage to Worthersee sorted.
For those who don’t know Worthersee is an idyllic and picturesque region of Austria that every year see’s the whole of the european VAG scene descend upon it.
Basically if its German and cool its there……….

We have a pretty cool line up of cars we are taking on the 2000 mile round trip and we will once again be joined by Brian from Rotiform who has something special up his sleeve for this year after doing the journey in his rather special 964 last year.

PLAYERS 68″ DATSUN510 TRUCK BEGINS ITS JOURNEY…..

So after picking up this 1968 510 truck from California late last year we are finally about to get this longterm project underway.

We are led to believe that there are literally a handful of these in the country so because of that……..we are going too SLAM it.

For that job we are enlisting  Matt the main man at BALLS’d to get our work truck on the floor. The truck is amazingly rot free and solid and we have a long term plan for this project, so keep an eye out for updates…
