iStayclean’s Introduction to Florida

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 events that were also done at this same location. Well the founder of iStayclean (Merv Hernandez) is also the founder of the past 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.
