• 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…

  • OTHER: MB-Click vs Swissclick Numberplate mounts

    The Meta algorithm has been pushing out ads for sleek number plate mounts a lot recently , so the idea of “invisible” number plate mounts has been growing on me in the past few months. In Switzerland, you can have the same set of numberplates for multiple cars, means you have to switch them regularly if you own more than one car. That is a really nice system, but requires special number plate mounts to easy move number plates from one to another car without a lot of hassle. Over many years the “Swissclick” or similar brand has been everybody’s favourite. they come in a many colours, are easy to…

  • GARAGE: The build is finally done!

    Keen readers may have read a few times about the build of my House / Workshop and Garage. The build was about 90% complete since a while, but the missing 10% always bothered me a bit. With other priorities ahead, i decided to complete the project, so i can finally focus on my cars, my exams and my other projects. So over the course of the last few months, i spent some free hours to complete this project. and today i can finally say – IT’S DONE! First i got myself a workshop press for some planned work: I also set up the Sandblasting cabinet which i got a while…

  • GARAGE / OTHER: Garage upgrades & Datsun 240K-GT / Datsun 1000 brochures

    Since i’m now completeing my business education, my progress with the car is a bit slow until – after two years – my exams are completed in April next year. Then i plan to get that damn car back on the road as soon as possible. in the meantime i only have limited time and mostly like to spend it for research and buying stuff. I therefore decided it’s time to upgrade my workshop a bit, so i can get some work done by myself in future. The first pallette arrived af few days ago: And it contained a nice sandblasting cabinet. It was super cheap and i don’t expect…

  • 240Z: Datsun Switzerland official jackets / hoodies

    A few days ago i found these Datsun Jackets for sale, and found out it was a friend of mine selling those. I thought they where cool, so i went and got them. Turns out those were unused, original swiss datsun merchangdising items. Even tho they’re size L and XL they’re more of a childrens size, and made of a weird plastic material (polyester). it feels like it looks. Like wearing a trashbag or so. Nevertheless, i think they’re super funky and cool and just had to have them. Since i have no clue what to do with them, and since i had a picture-frame leftover, i decided frame the…

  • GARAGE: Version 1.5: New shelves and other stuff in

    Soooo, time for an Update on the Garage.  I’m working on Garage version 1.5. Not because i really planned to do so, but because of lucky circumstances i got hands on some neat stuff which now needs installation and relocation of a few things. Aside from the big neon sign which needs a bit of extra-wiring to have it actuated with the light-switch, my company was parting out again. I missed the big auction where they sold off the complete assembly line stuff for cheap, but at the end it was luck, because it probably saved me a lot of money 😀 but even better so, the parts they didn’t…

  • GARAGE: Vintage swiss Datsun dealer neon sign

    I’ve always wanted to decorate my workshop & Garage with some authentic Vintage datsun signs or so, but they’re not exactly easy to come by.. So when this one popped up, i had to get it immediately. Yesterday i undertook a 6 hour drive to the other, french speaking side, of the country, to pick up this vintage dealer sign. Due to the language barrier and short time we had, i wasn’t able to figure out the history. But the seller had other, similar signs, so i guess it must have been part of a combination with other signs outside a dealership in the french speaking area of switzerland. Nevertheless.…

  • GARAGE: ADVAN Nobori Flag

    I had the feeling that my garage needs a bit more decoration. But rather than buying fake-stuff i wanted to make sure i get some genuine stuff, without spending a fortune. Many “JDM” Brand fake-things are sold on ebay, but when i stumbled upon this Advan Nobori Flag, which perfectly fits my Advan Equipped EK9, and for a reasonable price too, i had to get it: I have no proof that it isn’t a fake thing, but the seller seemed legit (with not selling 100 similar flags with different prints) and was from Japan. And details like the marks on the packing and this little label on the flag made…
