Custom EK Rear Diffuser

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on October 22, 2009 by ekhatch

Kevlar is sexy. I can’t afford anything kevlar and if I actually managed to save up for some kevlar goodness I wouldn’t have the nerve to cut it up. I can’t even slice a pizza evenly. But I’m not this guy, I’m only guessing but it looks like he may have started with an S2000 diffuser and made it a piece of functional beauty for his EK.


Eventhough it’s not finished, the rest of the car is every bit as high end, custom, and skillfully and beautifully put together.



Sunday Funday

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 18, 2009 by ekhatch

Started off the day rolling to the Ohio Hondas fall meet with Duke. It was about 50 degrees and pretty windy so I wasn’t expecting much of a turn out but it was decent. My camera is every bit as lame as my car so don’t expect much from the pictures, but I did take a bunch. I got to meet Brian and the super cool gang from Team Function and got to see Brian’s graffiti hatch in person. Seeing pictures of it is one thing, seeing it roll down the street is a whole different experience, it is crazy! Bunch of truly great down to earth people who have fun with thier cars and even stuck a Team Function sticker on my car! I’m not even allowed in Jason and Duke’s team and they’re my best friends lol. There were a lot of cool cars to check out but hanging with them was definately the highlight of my day. After the meet we rolled down to the hood to take some pictures and buy crack, I’ll have them up later this week. Let’s take a look at the stats for the day:

cars: 35 ish

people: around 50 maybe

beautifully done turbo K swaps: 2

J swaps: 1

friends made: lots!

homeless kittens abducted from the ghetto: 1

stickers sold: 1

Yea, little disappointed by that last one. I had a big sign on my window about the Melissa Project along with the stickers but only sold 1. Thank you dude whoever you were! It’s all good, it’s $5 we didn’t have yesterday, and that’s what counts. If I have to stand 4 hours in the cold to sell each and every one I’ll do it with a smile on my face.

So shut up and get to the pix already!

If you’re at Import Alliance next weekend be sure to check out Brian’s graffiti hatch, well, you probably won’t have a choice, it tends to stand out!

Cool story about the guy with this widebody turbo NSX, he took his car off his trailer and drove it 150+ miles home from Import Alliance so he could trailer a fellow enthusiast’s car home that broke down. Considering the amount of very high dollar carbon fiber sitting 2 inches off the ground on this car, that really says something, much respect!

Battleship Gray

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on December 20, 2008 by ekhatch

Sometimes I like the battleship gray look, sometimes…not so much. I saw someone call it “Hiroshima Gray” on a forum, I guess that sounds more JDM than “shiney primer” lol. Audi did offer a battleship gray color on TTs I believe, but I’ve yet to see one in person. I’m kinda up in the air about this car, but it is clean and does have the goods where it counts.





EK Rear Diffuser

Pretty damn bitchin’ if you ask me, I wonder what it’s off of, S2000 maybe? As much as I like it I do see the potential for it to look out of place on the wrong car but it looks right at home on this BackYard Special equipped Midori.


If I’m not mistaken these are both the same car after a make over that included Vision mirrors, custom flares and canards, and NSX spec Mugen MF10s. I might be wrong on that tho. Either way god damn what a hatch.
