Fabulous Fabrications

August 30th, 2012

Yesterday I finally had my car booked in to get a custom exhaust made up by Nathan from Fabulous Fabrications. You might have seen a lot of posts here and there in regards to Effsqaured or Fabulous Fabrictions purely because I want to help a good friend of mine get a kick-start in the industry. Nathan has been welding for a little over 5 years now but has generally been caught in a job where his skills couldn’t really shine to the surface, however that has changed over the past couple of weeks. He has recently transitioned from his full-time job at a welding company to his own fabrication business.

Yesterday I had booked in for a full exhaust which I was seriously excited about. I offered to hang out with him for the day, talk smack, give a helping hand and help time fly by. These selected images below go from the exhaust being tacked up all the way through to the finish product alongside the standard exhaust. I have to say it was awesome watching Nathan work his magic on his own stomping grounds, so relaxed in every way possible and is super swift at getting his work done.

If you’re located in Brisbane, or even Australia and looking for fabrication work for your car be sure to contact him I actually feel privileged to have a good friend of mine who can produce such stunning metal work locally. Specialising in extractors, exhausts, custom bash plates and engine piping I’m sure Nathan can fit you up and produce something of such quality for you. Be sure to head over to his site and follow him: EFFSQUARED x

All images shot with iPhone4S as I’m currently without a DSLR.

Since returning back to Australia from Japan I have been thinking how I can somehow preview my work to each of you individually as a solid, in your hands, in front of your eyes. These days everything, as you know is on the computer with a few clicks of the mouse. I thought about doing a café styled booklet however the budget for half a dozen of them is out of my range, for now anyway. Compensating that idea I’ve thought of a more balanced solution – 2012/2013 Automotive Volume Shirtstuckedin Calendar.

These past few weeks I’ve been scouting through my galleries and archives from my trips to Japan trying to source the best possible images to use for print. Above is the design I will be looking to go ahead with for the front and back of the calendar. I, however want your help as an audience of Shirtstuckedin to submit in a comment below what image(s) pop into your head that you think are worthy of getting featured in this calendar that could potentially be hanging in your garage, workshop, kitchen, work office or even the bathroom. Whatever, wherever you hang it I don’t mind, I just want to make sure I can proceed this idea in the best possible way for you all.  The calendar will be from December 2012 through to December 2013 therefore 13 specific images must be chosen. It will also be showcasing a handful of images that are yet to be leaked all over the internet which I’m really excited to show you all. If you’re willing to share your opinion, comment below. Really looking forward to this! Thanks a bunch, Casey! x

Osaka Castle

June 18th, 2012

With car events and meets scheduled on the calendar almost everyday when I’m in Japan it is always refreshing to venture out to the tourist sites. When we were staying in Osaka we made our way to Osaka Castle which I hadn’t seen on my previous trips. They were quite strict on photographs inside, however we managed to take plenty from the viewing area up top. More to come x
