It’s been a long time coming, but show season has finally returned for 2016, kicking things off last weekend in Telford at the one and only Ultimate Dubs. To most of us this is the big show to start the year with – a perfect opportunity to show off the new builds and projects which have been hidden away during the cold Winter months. With that in mind, there was pure excitement in the air – we’ve all been away from the car community for a a few months which seemed like forever. Not have we been away from the cars, but friends too – so UD is the perfect reunion! Plus, following our success at Ultimate Stance back in November, we decided to bring back our Pop-Up Store for this show, with plans to hit a lot more events throughout the year – so keep your eyes out for us. As hectic as it is trading at a busy show like Ultimate Dubs, we still managed to get some time in for the all-important photographs. So sit back, grab a cuppa, and enjoy what the modified car scene has to offer so far…


Our pop-up store all ready for trading!
