• EK9: The Overhaul, pt. 3

    I have a week off and decided it’s best to “finish” the EK9 project, so i can put it in hibernation. At least I’ll finish all the work i can do myself. After putting the car on the lift, i first inspected the work done from my Honda garage recently. Like installing the Endless brake pads: And the full spoon bushing kit (which make the car handle like a completely different car. And i don’t mean it was bad before…) Then? Off with the front bumper and get the parts ready: I drained the oil and replaced the standard Honda oil drain plug with a High magnetic neodynium magnet drain…

  • 240Z: Another big NOS parts delivery

    I managed to get another load of rare old, but new (NOS = New-Old-Stock) parts for the 240Z. Most of the parts are something i wouldn’t have bought new since they’re just small bits and pieces, but when i got the chance to obtain the whole lot, i couldn’t refuse. This is what i got delivered today: First of all: A clutch disk: Then a set of complete headlight bucket assemblies. You might remember i got the rubber seals for these included in last weeks delivery, and today also the chrome trim rings arrived: Some more rare body panels: The two reinforcment corners that start at the firewall and extend…

  • ATENZA: Rear damage accident

    This week i was involved in an accident. I had to brake hard because of a car in front of me did the same and two guys crashed in my rear when i had to brake from 100 km/h to zero. The reson why i write this post is to remind everbody how important it is to keep distance and buckle up! It was morning i drove to work when out of nowwhere the car in front of me broke hard. I had to brake hard as well, I thought i’d hit him but luckily the car stopped approx 1m behind the car in front of me. Phew. But then…

  • 240Z: New rare NOS parts in & news from the Bodyshop

    Soo, the Z project is slowly picking up speed again. I was able to purchase a bunch of NOS parts from a nice elderly guy lately and they arrived today: So what is inside those boxes? First of all a set of NOS Akebono rear drum brake pads. I think i have now three sets of NOS pads, and one Project Mu 🙂 A set of original headlight rubber gaskets in excellent condition. I think i bought a good aftermarket set once, but these are of course the real deal. An original battery tray mount metal frame. I think i have the rubber / Plastik kit for it, so now…

  • OTHER: Rare Honda Jazz / City Turbo II for sale!

    Disclaimer. I don’t know the seller or the car, but this is beyond cool and rare , so i had to share it 🙂 A Honda Jazz / City turbo II.  One of the rare Honda’s that came with a turbo back in the day.

  • 240Z: Vintage 240Z & Datsun Magazines Lot arrived

    Recently i managed to get hands on a massive lot of vintage Datsun / Z & ZX club magazines and memorabilie. The value of those is questionable, since it’s mostly not official Datsun / Nissan, but still a nice piece of history. and i bet those have become rare. I don’t know yet what to do with those, but i’m definitely going through them one by one over the winter days and maybe put them up for sale in different packages. So what did i get? Aside from a few accessories catalogues and aftermaket parts catalogues, tuning brochures, etc. There’s the british Z Club magazine, the Classic Z Register monthly…

  • EK9: The Overhaul, pt. 2

    Wow, almost 10 months since i got the parts and planned to do the overhaul, but for various reasons i had to postpone it to this winter. Luckily stars aligned and i got the first part done. well ok, the first part was already done a few weeks ago but that was really minor. This time i brought the EK9 to the workshop and dropped it of for some work, which included: – Adjust the suspension by +5mm to be approved by the MOT (seems it came down since the original setting was made) – Replace the timing belt. Picture shows the japanese replacement milage sticker which came with the…

  • GARAGE | EK9: New JDMJunkies gear & EK9 Overhaul starts

    It’s not that i try to actively Promote the JDMjunkies brand or something, but i thought at least i could label my cars and get myself a nice banner, just for fun’s sake. And if you order decal stickers anyway, why not add some more to the shopping cart? So here we go. some fancy stickers: And a new Banner made out of PVC-free material: This is mainly for garage decoration, so i had to hang it at the wall directly: But i also might use it whenever i decide myselve to have a booth at any car shows or swap meets: And while having the concrete drill out anyway,…

  • EK9: KHXY Design Custom EK9 Hothweels diorama

    You might remember when a young nice dude named Kay gifted me a custom Eibach EG6 Honda Hothweels model at the recent Cagedude anniversary party? Since he owns an EK-civic himself, he told me he wanted to build my EK9 as a custom hothweels – just for fun. Who am i to say no? A few weeks later i get a message with these photos: And today i got an unexpectedly full Diorama in the mailbox. Excellent replica of my EK9 with the Advan wheels, Advan Flag red toolbox, and even the red GP-sports tow-strap which i have on my car. Here it is with the Eibach Drag EG6, which…

  • OTHER: JDMJ Stickers arrived, applied and garage improvements

    Recently i fellt the urge to make JDMjunkies a bit more visible, when i bring my cars to shows, etc. So i ordered some stickers. Naturally they had to go on the car immediately. First gave it a clean with the old Motorex glass cleaner i had standing around. I once got it as a promotion gift at a car show many years ago and i still use it every now and then. And here we go on the Daily Mazda 6 / Atenza: The EK9 got the same treatment. And then i realized that my shelving could use a bit of improvement. Before: After: It just fit by a…
