Welcome back to part 2 of our WEKEAST 2012 coverage, provided to us by our guest photographer, Eric Badis. Hope all of you are having a good three-day weekend and staying out of the heat. Today we’re gonna look at the second half of Eric’s photoset and I even have a couple of other guys who have stepped in and provided more photos from WEKEAST. I’m looking forward to going through them throughout the week since there are still some cars that I spotted at the show that I haven’t really seen goo photos of yet. As I said in part 1, I was more than pleased with the caliber of builds at WEKEAST an it is definitely one of the events that I will mark on my calender for next year. I’d love to get out there to see some of these builds in person and seeing as how successful this year’s Wekfest was, it’ll only continue to grow from there. I got some regular life stuff going on over here today, especially since it is a holiday so I’m going to try to get through this photos fairly quickly… Thanks for looking guys…enjoy…

The Evos and Subaru STis had to be some of the most impressive builds at the show. Just the quality of parts and how they all come together makes them some of the best in show…

This Varis widebody Evo X was probably one of my favorites at the show, just from seeing photos anyways. Love the Varis front aero, rear over fenders, color, and wheel selection… about as close to perfect as it gets (exterior-wise)…

Clean Subaru reppin’ JDM Chicago on concave Work Emotion CR-Kais…

7885341820_ea1520156a_o-Edit

This Lexus SC430 on gunmetal Work Meisters was another favorite of mine… SC430s look sort of awkward in stock form but when they’re done up, they usually look pretty crazy…

Jeremy Brittain’s “ATTACK” IS350…

7888206670_55813a7846_o-Edit

Stance-themed Evo on CCWs… I know a lot of you won’t be a fan of this because it isn’t “functional” but I think it actually looks pretty good…Just in terms of pure style and eliminating any talk of functionality since it’s relative to the owner’s needs….

7885347156_b24ec79325_o-Edit

Simple Subaru STi on gold-faced Work Meister M1Rs…

7888242862_6d830857e4_o-Edit

Alex Witkin’s Subaru from EMOTION had to be one of the more anticipated builds presented at WEKEAST… Very unique-looking build with the rare Gram Lights aero w/carbon ducts…

7888243444_f6e0851140_o-Edit

His engine bay with the tubbed front wheel wells and complete shave and tuck made the Subaru look almost like a toy… Crazy to see what Subaru enthusiasts are doing to these engine bays these days since they are typically very cluttered and just dressed up with aesthetic components…

7888244734_00b6d064c7_o-Edit
