In our final instalment of this years Dubshed we take a further look into the King's Hall Pavilion, check out some of the best cars in the Alexander Hall and look around some vintage dubs in the Aircooled Zone.

In our show summary we mentioned how Kleen Freaks had brought the guys from Dub Fiction over. While we spoke about Julian Loose’s A4 in Part 1 he wasn’t the only member of Dub Fiction who got us excited. Andy Hatton and Joe Farrand’s different takes on the MK4 platform kept us well entertained. While Joe’s Imola yellow R32 featured some Recaro CS’s, a huge set of Lamborghini brakes and a colour coded rollcage, Andy wen’t down the lounge route with lots of brown leather – even in the engine bay!

Alongside these pair was the Car of the Show – Alex Begley’s Scirocco. Having visited Dubshed for the first time last year, his Scirocco has had a complete overhaul for 2014 – new paint, new wheels, new interior, new boot build and we believe some engine work too.

If the Pavilion and Alexander Halls were too #sc3n3 for you then perhaps the newly created Aircooled Zone would be more to you taste. Inside this hall lay a number of old skool Volkswagens including Tsar Sheane’s beautiful brown ’54 Beetle, the Culmore Dub Club ’67 Splitscreen Camper and Brian Dunne’s rat Beetle which had a mixture of fresh and f*%ked with decals scratched into the paintwork, contrasting with polished elements.

While outside was quiet on Saturday, on Sunday it was packed out with cars making an appearance for the main day of the show – this included the guys at NI-BMW. On their stand was another of our favourite cars – Dario Giordano’s 118d which was recently bagged on a BBS RF’s with an boot install from our friends at Design RMC.

So that’s it from Dubshed for another year – this year certainly lived up to expectations however GTINI have set the bar stupidly high for 2015.

We can’t wait to see how they top this…
