Do Not Buy Bride Backpacks!

Walking around car shows, seeing postings on social media, I see a lot of these Bride/Takata Backpacks floating around. I just wanted to get this out there that Bride does not offer any type of backpack like this and this is unlicensed product using fake Bride fabric and using the Bride Logo without permission. All of you guys out there that are buying these backpacks are doing the great disservice to the community. It’s things like this that make companies want to pack up and call it quits.

EDIT: This whole issue isn’t about being fake or not. The issue here is that someone is using two company’s trademarked logo without permission. And they are doing so to make merchandise to sell for their own profit. What is fake is the fabric that they are using. It is not authentic Bride material. Bride does offer the fabric in the US Market only but only for private use. The end user that is buying it can purchase the fabric to upholster their seat inserts, door panels, shift boots, etc. However, they do not allow the use of the fabric for merchandised use.

Check out these guys the I took pictures of from last weekend’s Formula Drift event. Funny thing is they also walked right in front of the Bride Booth with a representative from Bride Japan there present.fakebride-D.Vo.

Installation of Nagisa Auto Gacchiri Support for Civic EK

Cody from RennSpec recently installed some Nagisa Auto Gacchiri Supports (Fender Braces) on his Honda Civic EK and was nice enough to send us some images of the install and do a small write up for us. He had another brand’s fender brace installed previously but mentioned that it didn’t fit well and required drilling for the installation. Nagisa Auto’s Fender brace is a much easier install and requires no drilling for installation.
