Before and after...



Well it took some doing, in fact it took about 10 months, things take a bit longer when you're skint don't they.

We basically loaded my boot up with all the gear: shocks, adaptors (the BBS are 5x112 pcd as opposed to my 5x100 hubs), brakes and rims. As with anything to do with cars, nothing really went to plan.

Dubmissile collaborates with VUU Cult

The next club targetted by the missile for a design project is the cool collective known as VUU Cult. These guys, based in the North (Leeds/Huddersfield way) are a great bunch with a certain outlook on the dub scene. Their club forum, vuucult run by Jez and Sarah is a dark but relaxed place to be with a lean towards the hot rod inspired way of dubbing.

Pay em a visit, have a good time.

Watch this space for updates of their new club graphics.
