Kday Chapter 4 Japan Coverage, A Different Perspective…Part 2…

Happy Monday evening all… got some more great stuff from Kday Chapter 4 for you guys to check out. It’s always good to have a steady stream of content coming in. The year usually starts off kinda slow but around this time, there are plenty of events to cover and photos to post. I’m busy organizing YearSIX so I’ll keep it short for today. I also told myself I’d do some more stuff around the shop since we’re gonna have some visitors very soon coming from all over for my event as well as SEMA in Las Vegas. Good thing I got Shota Mori taking care of content while I’m busy with other things. Enjoy!!…

The number of DA Integras at Kday C4 didn’t compare to the sheer number of EF/EE Civics in attendance but definitely were represented well…

There’s something very peculiar and awesome about this particular Akebono banner that says “The Power of Dream Homies” on it…

I’ve always been a big fan of the JDM EF2 front ends with the one-piece headlights and grille. I still remember the first time I ever got to see one in person. It was on Chad’s old EF from Team Ziggy at the Import Revolution car show back in like, 2004 or so….maybe even before that…

This was a pretty cool sight to see the DJ at Kday C4 rocking a KDAY 93.5 FM t-shirt. For those not from Socal, 93.5 KDAY is actually a radio station out here that plays old hip hop. Perfect that Takeshi’s event is called Kday and the DJ who is supplying the music that day is wearing a shirt bearing the same name while also being relevant to both the event and USDM culture….

A trio of slammed EF Civics in various platforms….

The text on the center cap reads “The Wheel Rich In Contents”….whatever that means, haha….

This incredibly clean CR-X took home the Akebono award…

15350624685_2a35ddc136_o

As mentioned, there most certainly was not a shortage of EFs at Kday C4….

15327595456_b90e5cf451_o

Mokkun’s build is probably one of the most recognizable Civic builds from that region of Japan….

Ryousuke Takahashi’s SiR….

Kouki and Zenki S14 Silvias…..

15164062300_8bddd2c3e5_o

This Toyota FJ Cruiser is probably the only car in this entire post that was produced after 2000….

15164180828_7341b942d6_o

Other than this Suzuka Blue Mugen S2000 that Yosiyuki Hatano is looking at above…

15164059190_ae782b2e00_o

15350442532_6c2b3c3575_o

In terms of it being a “USDM-styled” S2000, this build is on point. It has a full list of Mugen goodies and sits on a set of custom-built 18-inch Mugen M7 wheels. If you didn’t know any better, you’d probably think that this AP2 was from North America….

15164056940_63e2e52b06_o

Here you can get a better look at the multi-step M7 wheels….

Oka’s FC RX-7 on Rotiform wheels…

15164222587_029ac5e696_o

One of the more peculiar looks that day was Hashiba’s restored Jeep Wrangler “Gambler” wheels on his Cressida-converted Mark II….

15164037820_86a9d38f04_o

I also wondered about the plethora of builds on OEM wheels that day. Guys like Teru Ito who typically have very nice aftermarket wheels decided to cruise out to Kday C4 on stocks. I guess they really wanted to switch things up and went with something completely different than the norm…

15164036270_d878167d97_o

Teru reppin’ both The Chronicles and the Kday C4 license plate placard….

The man behind Kday, getting ready to speak to everyone and present the awards….

15350722775_f5572a8057_o

He kept things simple this year by doing award plaques instead of the typical plastic trophies that you’re more accustomed to seeing at events….

Still got a lot of great photos coming but I’ll stop it here for today. Thanks for looking everyone. More to come in the next installment!…
