Some may not know this but technically this isn’t the first time iStayclean has done an event in the Tampa area. For the ones that have been around for a while now, you may recall the JdmDreams.net events that were also done at this same location. Well the founder of iStayclean (Merv Hernandez) is also the founder of the past JdmDreams.net events. Now under a different name with a bigger agenda, we wanted to bring it back to where it originally started. iStayclean might be a new name to the scene, but the people involved are veterans and know exactly how to get things done. We had to bring back that classic meet that involved hanging out with fellow enthusiasts that share the same love for the scene and an awesome cookout for everyone that attended. We are very happy with the turn out and how smooth everything went. We hope everyone had a great time attending cause we had a great time putting this meet together for everyone. Since it went so well, you can expect another iStayclean event happening again some time in the near future. Now let’s get to the coverage!
This was early in the am on our way to Philippe Park to get everything organized and ready. So I took the opportunity to capture this rolling shot of (S1 member) Carlos’s awesome lancer build. He had just finished his custom splitter and I must say it is a great addition.
S1 Member Ceejay brought out a new S1 Car. This one is something special and will have a very special feature coming soon.
Possibly my favorite Team Sunworks build.
Shout out to the awesome guys from Courtesy Flush for attending and supporting the meet with some awesome donations for the raffle we had going on.Godzilla showed up looking great on a set of Work Meister S1 wheels. Possibly the best wheels to choose for a R32.
Check out the lil man’s mean mug face haha. These kids were riding around in style for sure! Possibly the most anticipated build to see come out was (S1 Member) Jaime’s monster K turbo build.Ready for war setup.The saying “less is more” is very fitting for this Bmw. S2000 looking great on a set of Work Emotions wrapped in a meaty tire.
(S1 Member) Alan just finished his build not too long ago and I must say it looks even better in person. The color is from a Porsche GT3 RS and it looks awesome.G35 sedan showing off it’s diamond under the hood. Love the polished themed the owner went with, everything on this build flows very well.Squadron One is the family behind the iStayclean staff. So it’s only natural we all have that iStayclean standard.I loved the mix of cars that showed up as well. We had everything from your everyday Hondas to this gorgeous Porsche that attended. There was also an awesome Corvette Stingray that also attended but missed my opportunity to capture a photo of it, always next time!The guys from Faction know how to stay clean as well. Of course we had some awesome Ruckus builds rolling around the meet. Shout out to Kevin at the Ruck Shop that also supported us and gave donations to the raffle!
(S1 Member) Alex’s Accord that he AutoXs religiously! He puts that F20b to work!
Frs on a set of newly released Enkei RS05RRs. Perfect wheel choice in my opinion.Midori hatch came in rolling on brand new rubber wrapped around a set of CCWS. As you can see in the photo it still has the tire sticker on it haha. He knows how to stay clean!(S1 Member) Matt’s K24 civic looking perfect as usual on a set of 949 racing wheels.I was glad to see the owner move his car over to the front lot for better viewing pleasure. The Enkei NT03s look amazing on the newer Civic Si.I couldn’t help but capture another photo. It just looks too perfect haha.We would like to give a huge thanks to all our Supporters!
