The Build Threads discussion group is now open! This is something I’ve been debating for a while, but with the popularity of Facebook Groups becoming more and more obvious every day, I thought it was time to jump on the bandwagon. This is a great place to share your own projects, fabrication discussion, sharing your own build threads or others you’ve found, and anything related to automotive projects of all types. Anyone and everyone is welcome, so please come and join the fun 🙂
More stickers are in the pipeline for the future, pending how much you guys like these ones. Thanks everyone for your continued support. Next year Build Threads will have been going for 5 years strong!
It’s been a long time coming, but I’ve finally updated the Build Threads logo to a much more versatile format. Gone is the fluro green, in it’s place is a nice vintage green, which opens up the possibilities for printed merchandise, so stay tuned.
I also thought I’d dip my toes into the very-serious world of Time Attack racing in the way of a render, so I present to you, the Time Attack Lada Niva! Click the first image to bask in it’s glory in high-resolution. Keen eyes might just spot a future Build Threads sticker design.
After numerous people asking me over the years when the hell I’m going to have stickers made, the time has finally come. I’ve set up a store over at buildthreads.bigcartel.com which is stocked up with white, silver, and gold vinyl cut decals (200mm long). So head on over and get ordering!
I know I’m a bit late to the party, but Build-Threads.com has finally jumped on the social media bandwagon. Head on over to the page and push that “like” button as if your life depends on it. Become a fan and be conveniently notified on your wall when a build is published, sure beats scrolling through a million pictures of some kid belonging to some chick from highschool that you don’t even remember. Or, instead of reading yet another attention-seeking status update ending with “you know who you are”, be entertained with automotive news and tidbits that don’t necessarily warrant a full post on the blog.

I’m sure by now you all are well aware of the different ways you can donate, but I will still urge you to contact your countries branch of the Red Cross and help in any way you can. I have added a link on the side panel to the relief project being held by the Heartbreaker car club, it’s a great way to score a cool sticker for your ride while helping out those in need.
Upon seeing the recent devastation that the truly amazing country has been subjected to, it made me realise that I never shared any of my photos from the time I spent there last year. In August I traveled to Tokyo, Fuji, Hiroshima, Kyoto, and Osaka, back when we described Japan by using words such as culture, structure, respect, engineering, perfection, and efficiency, instead of earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear. So think of this as my pictorial tribute, and I hope you enjoy some of my captures of this stunning part of the world prior to the terrible events of 2011, click for slightly larger versions.
There’s plenty more builds to come in 2011, so don’t go anywhere! See you on the other side, folks.
