Yeah it has been a while since i did some mods on the EK9. But finally today i found some time and motivation to install the HOP (Honda Optional Parts) genuine EK9 Antenna block-off plate.
Why? I can't hear the radio anyway while driving, it saves weight and looks smoother than the antenna. And of course you get extra style Points at every meeting for having JDM optional parts installed *lol*
Lower center console panel removed (For disconnecting the antenna-cable)
Cleaned up some old ruber (Bottom cleaned, top not )
And finally the block-off plate installed:

Will do a complete EK9 photoshooting soon again, before it goes into the wintersleep
So i decided to get the EK9 ready for winter today. But i wanted to do some interieur longshots with my Fish-eye lens in a while now so i decided to get that done first.
Sadly lighting was very bad in my underground garage so my first HDR-Attempt was really bad with a lot of flares, noise, distortion and reflections.. sucks..:
So i tried another picture without HDR, but still not really lucky:
Will definitly get her out next year and try again under better circumstances..
after that i got her ready for winter-sleep:

Nice car and a lot of good work. You live in a great place too. We hope to be back over next July going back to the Cambrian in Adelboaden. We usually spend a few days just cruising about the passes etc. Be good to visit Rheinfall too for sure.
I have good personal relations to some japanese guys, so they just buy it at the factory or some shops in japan and send it to me. I've owned an import shop a few years ago so i know pretty many japanese parts-manufacturers and tuners. makes it cool to source new stuff
Some news from my Project
1) Ordered some small parts in Japan.
2) Looking out for some rare and special parts in japan (You'll see )
3) Had it out for a calendar-shooting for the Hondaholics.CH calendar, so i got some nice pics once again.
More pictures, wallpapers and news soon, this is only a little preview:
