yeah, i know the cooling plates are quite not functional, but the car will be a combined show/racecar for my company as demo-car use, so i think it makes a quite good job there, just looking good :D

in Switzerland you can have one numberplate for different cars so allmost all guys over-here have those special exchangable numberplate-holders. and those you see on this picture is only a 4-day numberplate (my car isn't street legal yet, but im working on it) so i had to give back those plates to our vehicle registration :)

and of course i had to show which one's the nicest car of them all :D

EDIT: Picture UPDATE PAGE 2!!!!!

3) J's Racing carbon intake:

4) A Hood-mounted noise reduction mat from an EK4 civic. the sense of this is: Im gonna get it mounted for the noise-emission measurement i'll have to do and with that i'll maybe pass the limitations WITH the j's intake and get it registered with that. otherwise i'll have drive illegally with the intake :D

oh, and im allready mounted some of the "old" parts showed before but im still waiting for one part to complete that step. i'll show you pictures when its completed...

sorry, no updates yet. im very busy. but made payment for my tanabe exhaust system and heard my last little part for completing the engine-bay styling will arrive next week, so there will be a little update of my engine bay (not the intake yet, but other parts) within next two weeks..
