No big news, but i realized after installing my New windshield, i had never put the EK9.org sticker back on the new screen. Then i found out that my 8 Year old-spare sticker from guatemala hat dried-out glue and was brittly. After asking on the EK9.org site i found that now another guy in UK makes and sells those and ordered a set, which showed up a few days later:


Had the leftovers from my attempt to install the aged stickers removed with a surgical scalpel:


And the new one on. Great quality and worth the bucks:


Here we go.


Then got the other HyperRev magazine for the EK9 civic, since i only had version two of it:


Both together. Lots of cool stuff which i haven't seen before inside, from a time when the car was brand new :)

I know, updates are a bit rare these days, mainly because of the garage/house/Workshop build, which has highest priority at the moment. Nevertheless, things are coming along nicely:


But since you're here for the cars, i thought i'd share some pictures from a recend EK9 photoshoot for the Hondaholics Calendar 2019.
Pictures are not the best i ever made, but i still like them and had some first experiments with the poliarizing filters:

Since our holidays got cancelled we decided to take the EK9 to the swiss mountains instead:

Furkapass, Grimselpass, Brünig, Jaunpass, Col du Pillon, Saanenmöser and the french speaking lake area... beautifull



























Check out the Video of my EK9 on the grimselpass :)
The EK9 is just such a blast on those twisty mounain roads.


On my blog www.JDMjunkies.ch you can read part 1 and 2 of the full story now including a lot more pics.
Part 3 and 4 follow soon.

Thank you will be back next year for sure after watching the video and remembering how much fun it is. I saw your motorway vignette I have kept a couple of old ones on the car 2010 and 2011 I think just to remind me how great it is.

When stopped on some of the passes it always amazes me the people who come over and chat about the EK9 and some of the machinery parked up..

great! Let's meet when you're here. i can arrange something nice :)

Yeah that's really fun. saw some great machinery there as well, like the older gentleman driving his original porsche 356 speedster hard over the Grimsel pass. Lovely guy, and a lot of car nerds enjoying the route. Still hope to be able to make the Stilfzer Joch / Stelvia Pass (from top gear fame) soon... and then there is still the Albula, St. bernhard, and many more... here's a full list of all passes btw :)
