SILLBEER in ink - Fast Fours and Banzai UK Magazine articles

Monday, 4 January 2010 | Comments (2) | Categories: Magazines/Blogs

Been meaning to do this for some time, and finally got a few days off over the Xmas break to scan and process these magazine articles.

Fast Fours - June 2008

The first coverage was in the Australian Fast Fours magazine back in June 2008. I was stoked that it actually made it onto the cover too which is an accomplishment in and of itself. Then they went on to do a very comprehensive 8 page article with plenty of pics taken by Dean Summers.

Here's the cover (they were kind enough to send me a PDF version of the cover):

The rest has been scanned and resized for the web.

Banzai UK - January 2009

The second coverage was in the UK Banzai magazine a year ago in January 2009. The photos and story were by local photo-journalist Rick McDowell. The photos used in the article were posted a while back.

Here's what the cover looks like (unfortunately I believe they only have UK cars on the covers) where I get a mention on the footer:

And the article itself (apologies for crap over saturation of colour):

Hope you like the articles and sorry for the overly long period between posts. I have a lot to post up while I'm on holidays including the subject of the engine rebuild...more to come.

Hey Brendon
Very nice man, have been following your blog since I saw the fast fours article and was so impressed it inspired me to do what I was thinking about for a long while, I bought a S13 for myself and while nowhere near the mods and standard of yours I love it. Anyway was just wondering, where did you end up mounting your amps for the sound system? I know they are in the boot somewhere but where exactly as I need to mount mine and want a neat job. Thanks

Hi Mate

Thanks for the comments. They are always appreciated. Regarding the mounting of the amps, they were done by a professional installer who made the sub enclosure (sealed box with Alpine Type X 10") that squeezes into a base plate that also houses the amp stands. The crossovers are also on these 'stands'. A better pic of the setup can be seen here:
