As the stance scene becomes more & more popular you meet a ton of new people. In my case Rayan. Met him this year at Slammed Society Irwindale when he showcased his 2009 Mazda Speed 3. Few months flew by and we finally decided to setup a date to shoot his car. Only that this time the Speed was sitting on new wheels.
Rayan has had the car for 2 years and is still not done with the car. He started the build about a year and a half ago but had to stop because he was deployed to Afghanistan. While being deployed, he decided to ship the car back to his hometown, Richmond Hill Queens NYC. He still managed to buy parts during deployment and had the parts shipped to his parents house in Queens. Towards the end of his deployment, he had his brothers take the car to a shop that usually works on Mazdas, called Powerhouse tuning notorious for their knowledge in rotaries. From there the car was taken to a good friend of his. Tesh of Monkey Wrench, He pointed the car towards a daily stance. The car was then shipped to California. The project has had many different looks but as of now he is satisfied with his new setup.
Rayan wanted to give some shoutouts to- Tesh, Vern, Taco, Lil Bai, SLAMMED SEDAN CREW ,HIS brothers, his COMPLETELY understanding girlfriend, and all his friends and family thats helped with the build.
