We’re on the Jetstar red-eye flight tonight through to Tokyo for our second Japan visit of the year. As before, we have a stack planned with some interesting shoots, workshop visits already lined up and of course the Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show on Sunday which is the main focus of the trip.
As always, you can follow our exploits through our on-the-go Instagram account to see what we’re up to for the next 6 days.
One visit that is particularly exciting is a drop-in to Liberty Walk in Nagoya this Friday to see Kato-san’s old school classic and Bosozoku collection. To have a bit of a taste of what we’ll be seeing, check out this short film on Kato and his collection.
See you on the other side…
It’s been a long time coming, but our US shop is now open and operating. Nearly all the same stock is available as the Australia site, with a few exceptions, and all items are now shipping from Detroit directly to US customers. So now US customers can order without the sting in the tail that was the added shipping costs all the way from down unda.

Well, I was planning to do daily updates but the week was so hectic, it didn’t happen. Although, there are substantial photo bombs on our Fuel Magazine Facebook page, so head over there for plenty of eye candy. What a week! I made some great contacts, put faces to online names and got to see one of the craziest shows on earth from the inside. The plane leaves for Aus in a few hours.. time to get back to normal schedules and routines. That is…. until Craig and I hit Yokohama in a few weeks. LR.
It was a pretty full on day of setting up at the Max Grundy booth, but I did get out and about later in the day to grab some shots. Today was mostly about the cars outside, and a few shots inside the massive halls with miles and miles of walkways.
So much to see… so little time. Let’s see what I can grab tomorrow during a couple of hours of downtime. For plenty of images from today, check out our Fuel Magazine Facebook page for a bunch of big photo dumps.
The countdown is on… This weekend I will be heading over to Vegas to meet up with Craig who is travelling in from Detroit so that we can hit SEMA and check it out. Having not been there before, it will be a mission of exploration and discovery.
On top of that, I will be helping out Max Grundy at his booth for the whole week, so I’m anticipating meeting some interesting people along the way. We’ve had some special posters printed up just for SEMA folks (below), so be sure to stop by Max’s booth and pick one up for free.
I’ll be pounding the Instagram account over the week, so join us there for our insights.
See you in Vegas!
