Here we go then... no-one else seems to have bothered so I\'ll plop some up shall I? Didn\'t bother uploading loads of individual pics of everyone\'s cars cos Gary already did that over on FDUK and I CBA repeating loads of pics, so you\'ll have to put up with my arty nonsnse lol
FDUK stand (detail)






Loving Mr Nash\'s new livery




Acceptable wear and tear


This one\'s mine and I make no apologies for including a pic or two lol. Figure I\'ve earned that much


detail of the FDUK stand err detail


Had to include this one after Steve told me how much it cost. Shan\'t embarass him, but it was around 650 more than my Kakimoto cost :eek:


Adam\'s high tech jack strategy

Some of the MRC stand... Veilside noses. Glad to hear Rob\'s mystery water seal problem didn\'t stop his making it there and back OK


Redgti\'s (I think?) wiiiiiiiiiiiide un


Liam\'s FC, the only rotary as unlucky as mine




Didn\'t find out who this blue one with the natty suede interior belonged to, but it was beautifully finished


Some detail from the drag paddock. Rob\'s car still manages to buck the drag car trend by being lovely as well as functional


everywhere you look, it\'s immaculate. A true credit to Reg. Whoever the fduk Reg is


Evil bloody thing






James\' is more easy to look at with every passing season as well. This is art




And some racing; Blitzen


James




Chris Impey


Yes, the fronts are actually off the ground...


Rob


Stu

And some non-FD sorta stuff

Leon Green working those tyres


Bradshaw\'s obscene Zed. Funny, just as we were wondering what the point is when he\'s sooo much quicker than anyone else, he got a massive tankslapper on in th efinal and ....ed it away. Funny but true hahaha


Mmmm, shmokin


Such a shame this Superbird couldn\'t hold itself together. Even the run where he shut off at the 60ft was a twelve second pass. More pics later, and you\'ll see why it\'s got ahhh.... potential


This bloody thing was RWYB-ing, which seemed a bit unfair lol


...and random stuff from around the show. Sumo had their GT racing GTR there, which was a blunt instrument made lovely by the purity of function. Oooh, poetic lol


Drag \'Stang enigine bay, also lovely. Really show-car finish


Shame it\'s on Rotas, really should be Watanabes but still looks good


Errrrr... one of Blitzens dirty orifice for no especial reason


240Z with carbon roof, arches, bumpers and spoilers. Very nice juxtapostion of old and new


Hmmm, too much? Fat And Furryarse stylee wide Zed


More of "that" Plymouth


One of these each side. Now you see why it could probably do a bit better than twelves lol




Terrifying iPhone-width spacers on a show and shine FTO. Like, WTF!

This may well have been the rarest car at the show, tucked away in a corner. Immaculate, too




Hmm, we like \'em BIG!


Got naaaaawwws, dude


Bet this RB-25 engined Escort surprises a few people in the traffic light GP


Adam trying to work out if his extra grip strategy will work on the strip. Or the world\'s most epic offset fail?


Monkey!


Plenty of manga chicks, always good. Well, in my head anyway


This Accord Type R goes pretty low. So low I couldn\'t even see if it was on airbags or what, I assume it must be. Wasn\'t even in the show and shine, despite its awesome finish. I think this is called stance lol


Fantastic finish on these BBS\'s




Holy fduk!


Mmmm, shiny


Some random FDUKers (and it doesn\'t get more random than that lol). Blitzen and Stu killing time


Our surrogate stalker since Phil can\'t be bothered to turn up any more


Big and little dudes


Gary checks his eyebrows are still on straight


Mr Nash, fortunately extremely blurred


This is the end. Well, mine anyway

Posted ours up last night in the photos section

Love the shot of the yellow FD with Mr Whippy - Neil missed that one!

Edit: moved MrC\'s thread over to this part of the forum, doesn\'t look like the photos and videos sesction is getting much use so will look at combining it with this section.

It\'s working OK for me Lisa - you\'re clicking on the \'Japshow 2011\' right? Should open up a new window.

If not here\'s the link in full: https://picasaweb.google.com/neiljcarter/Japshow2011#

I\'m also trying to upload some videos I took but it\'s taking hours - so need BT Infinity!

FDUK had a much better stand location than the MRC one - we had hardly any room and had to block four cars in behind the others. Mind you where have all the fds gone in this shot? I assume it was the 4pm jet car run?

Some of the videos and photos I took on my iPhone (including a rather bad one of the jet car!):
