Hope none of you mind but today we will be foregoing WTF Friday to round out the 2015 Fitted Toronto event coverage.

Today’s post picks up back outside before moving inwards to the two show halls. I’ve also taken a closer look at a few specific vehicles near the end.

Another quick look at the MKIII Golf from part one

Kind of regret not looking at this car myself, while it’s certainly on the ‘raw’ side of things it looks like there’s been a lot of time spent on the build

This car flipped from green to red for 2015, looks like the arches were cleaned up in the process too

Finally got a chance to check out Bryan’s featured FR-S and meet him, nice guy, great looking car

Like the GTI from yesterday’s post this Next Level Car had a complete makeover for 2015

fitted-toronto-2015-vw-jetta-bbs
Step Lip RS wheels were the order of the day
fitted-toronto-2015-trunk-2
If I’m not mistaken this is a memorial to someone who passed, and if so it’s nicely done one
fitted-toronto-2015-trunk-1a
Even as someone who will never swing a club outside of mini putt I thought this was very well done

Manolo’s cruiser looking as good as ever

I wouldn’t be upset if the RSO5RR became the new RPF-1…
fitted-toronto-2015-mini
Nice to see a pristine set of BBS RF-1 wheels at Fitted, these wheels don’t appear all that often but are one of my favourites from the BBS line up
fitted-toronto-2015-is300
For the first time in a long time Aidan’s IS300 is out for the whole season.

My son Ash was a fan of Uncle Aidan’s car, though I think he was trying to lower it more here
fitted-toronto-2015-honda-s2000-low-level-1
Low Level from Quebec rolled super hard this year

You’d never think that this style is banned in Quebec the way they drove in
fitted-toronto-2015-mazda-miata-bbs-gold-flares-1
Considering how close to the wire the builder (@douchebagged) cut things this Miata looked really good

The GV style light surrounds and luggage rack are a nice touch

Purple Stuff

From Montreal to Toronto it looks like dark purple s-chassis are the thing to have. Both of these were static and both immaculate.

Cimon Brouillette’s RPS13 was a winter long project completed for Fitted

fitted-toronto-2015-nissan-rps13-3
Such a clean car all around, nothing too extreme, just right
fitted-toronto-2015-nissan-s14-jon-prem-7
The evolution of Jon’s s14 from when I first saw it black and white has been impressive and this year  he’s gone back to static

fitted-toronto-2015-nissan-s14-jon-prem-4

fitted-toronto-2015-nissan-s14-jon-prem-5
Through some sort of black magic his ride height static seems extremely close to his previous aired out height

Team Mazn’s Widebody EL

Team Mayzn member Francescos’s EL has always been a very clean, well-rounded build and I generally thought it was finished when I saw it last year at Importfest. For 2015 however he got his surgical tools out and cut into the body in order to do the metal work required to fit his new rollers.

The conversion from stock body to this was done in a little under 7 days at Co-Up Autobody. Truly impressive.

16×10 CCW D24 wheels sit on all four corners, the only set in Canada in fact

Stopping the flare where they did was a great choice as it really reveals how wide the wheels are
fitted-toronto-2015-team-mayzn-el-rear-detail
The camber is kept very minimal all around as well

Steve’s Widebody Acura TL

After a lengthy time under the knife Liberty VIP member Steve Luangpakdy’s Acura TL is mostly complete. Another all metal build this car was crafted by Ottawa Autobody around very aggressive Luxury Abstract wheels.

Steve said he plans on doing a little work up front to even out the front and rear camber

The trunk was done by Ultimate Autosports a short two days before the show

Elevated

After a few years of fairly subtle changes to his car Brian shocked everyone by revealing not only wider wheels but a super clean, turbo set-up. Unfortunately the near constant crowd around his car means no exterior shots but here’s a few good looks at his engine work.

Will at Auto Select Tuning played a big part in getting this car complete

While Brian did a ton of the polish work himself

Best Of Show

The best of show winner for Fitted Toronto 2015 was this bagged, wrapped, hawk eye sitting on Water Cooled Industry wheels.

I assume the plate is a “broken rally car” reference

Not sure the specs of the wheels or camber but it is significant

 

In Search Of The Lowly Grail

The Scraped Crusaders had two unique builds in their area for 2015, Danny’s 1.8t e30 and Steve’s new competition drift car.

fitted-toronto-2015-bmw-e30-audi-20-swap-6

fitted-toronto-2015-bmw-e30-audi-20-swap-2
Availability and relatively low-cost has made the 1.8t a fairly popular e30 swap the past few years and this is one of the cleanest examples of said swap I have seen
fitted-toronto-2015-bmw-formula-d-e46-5
Steve has been running on a steady stream of Coors beer to get this car ready for Formula Drift Canada competition

Mitchys Speedshop did a great job on the cage and gnarly door bars

Cosmis, BC Racing and Falken hopped on board for support as well

Steve should be releasing those side skirts for sale soon under 999 Tech

The Elephants In The Room

Going to close the 2015 Fitted Toronto coverage out with these two cars that actually had their plates pulled by Johnny Law for excessive camber minutes before entering the show.

There’s a bit of controversy swirling around the whole ordeal regarding whether or not the cops had the jurisdiction necessary to pull their plates on private property, but I think at the end of the day the age-old adage ‘sucks to roll hard’ applies here.

Hopefully their day in court works favourably for both of them. Their cars were certainly talking points for several days following the show.

fitted-toronto-2015-g-35-camber
I know the car on the right is at -15 degrees of camber, and I think the one at the left might have more than that…
fitted-toronto-2015-g-35-camber-3
I was actually shown progress photos of this car last year. There’s a lot of metal work in those quarters

Spring rates are a whopping 60k in the rear in an attempt to not smash everything to smithereens

Can’t stop the camber gang

The next Fitted Lifestyle event is July 11th at Rockliffe airport in Ottawa and following that they return to Ontario for a show at Ontario Place August 15th. More info can be found at fittedlifestyle.com
