South East Dub Fest 2010

I threw this little flyer together for Dom who’s organising the 2010 South East Dub Fest. I thought it came out pretty nice, although I’d love to do a more intricate one for another event when I have more time to spare. Any Melbournians who are interested in the VW/Audi scene should come and check it out.

Performance VW Site of the Month + 100k views

Well I’m back from Fiji, and back to reality. Before I get back into posting content, I’d like to thank Elliot and the team at Performance VW Magazine for choosing Build Threads as their “Site of the Month” in the latest issue. What an honour, truly flattering. When I started this blog for a bit of fun at the beginning of the year, I never imagined I’d be getting this sort of exposure in such a short amount of time. Being in Australia I haven’t actually seen the article in print yet, since we get some international magazines a bit late, but Jeroen has kindly showed me this photo, thanks Jeroen!

Here’s a video of the double page spread thanks to the guys over at Puregroove/GarageZero & Violent Running. Congrats to them for having their TE31 Corolla blipped. You can read their posts here & here.


Also while I was away, the site ticked over 100,000 views, not bad for a bit over 7 months of blogging. Thanks again to all the readers, supporters, and people who link to Build Threads.

I’ve got heaps of content to sort through, lot’s of new submissions, so bare with me and I’ll get back to our regular programming soon!
