Now you can still get sponsored but modifying everything on the car with wild graphics, lights, carbon fiber, and the lot is just not what you're going to find on this forum.

That being said, since you're in socal though and that amount of mod shops and companies out there I would suggest going around and talking to the people at these types of places. People aren't just going to give you free parts, etc. unless the benefit from it. You're going to have to show them that they can increase their exposure, market base, customer base, etc. form sponsoring you. Also remember that the people who would potentially sponsor you also have cars and could just mod their own cars (sponsor themselves if you will). I wouldn't go into it expecting to get a sponsor that is going to give you however many thousands of dollars in parts, that just doesn't really happen.
I get what you're saying, I'm just looking for some advice, I drove all around el monte, industry, brea and pomona yesterday looking for sponsors. I already had 1 partial, got another partial yesterday, and I have 4 more waiting that haven't been decided yet, so far the best i got was a partial and that was fairly easy but when i went to others yesterday, they we're asking what shows I've competed in and what I've won and will compete in and I was stunned since I mostly just attend meets and thats about it. Hopefully I can gain some exposure once my car gets featured in Carbuzz.
