Eibach 2010 Coverage…Part 2: Here we go…

Alright, here are the first set of pics from the Eibach event. How many parts we’re gonna end up with is still up in the air because I think I have about 170 pictures or something to put up. There was actually more but some of them are headed over to Super Street so I couldn’t use those here. They’re not in any particular order so pardon the mess, I was busy most of the day running around everywhere and catching up with people as well as meeting new ones so I just snapped whatever caught my eye at that particular moment. I’m gonna start off with about 50 shots so be patient with all of them loading. Hopefully they don’t brick your phone or anything but they look better on a computer screen anyway…enjoy…

This is a familiar sight. We usually tell people not to show up early because to clogs up the street but of course, kids don’t know how to listen and they show up as early as 6am or whatever to flood the streets. Most of them aren’t even parking inside the gates, they just show up and park their cars up front so they can SEE the other cars come in…people even set chairs up on the road and sit down to watch…

…as we can clearly see here in the pics. You can kind of see me in the shot here standing next to DPK David and Rodrez. I was trying to lend a helping hand so I had Phaze2 Tony take my camera and get some roll-in shots for me…

DPK JP rolling up…I didn’t get a chance to say what’s up or get a shot of his car inside, luckily Tony was there to get him coming in…

PG+K S2kjay…

DPK David and his stickers that are invading eachother’s personal space…

Kinda sad I didn’t get a chance to get a closer look at this thing inside the building. Luckily it was shot recently for Honda Tuning magazine so keep an eye out for that. Notice the Chargespeed front fenders, they seem to be the popular item at the moment and were present on many other Civics inside…

L*Con prepped EP…

Here is the NWP booth, right next to it was The Chronicles booth which as you all know from reading the first part of the coverage, May was in charge of. She had cookies and even made a nifty sign for it. I didn’t get a shot of it at the show but here is what people were looking at when they walked up to the booth…

I had spent a majority of the night before cutting Eibach Edition stickers and was totally regretting losing sleep over it. I didn’t think they were gonna sell but I had already started and it would have been a waste cutting them since I wouldn’t be selling them online anymore after Eibach. Luckily those shits moved like hot cakes and were sold out a couple hours into the event. Shirts did really well too and I ended up selling all of the large black shirts. It was cool to see everyone with their shirts and stickers on that day, I guess I’m doing something right afterall…haha…or maybe it was the cookies that did it for everyone…

Ryan’s EF has always been the subject of great praise as well as controversy. The styling cues were a bit ahead of it’s time when it was active at shows. Ryan has gotten a bit older and doesn’t really do as many events as he used to but always finds time to make it out to Eibach. He switched up a couple things and once again refreshed the look of his EF. It was parked right in front of our booths and helped bring a lot of people over to us…

SSR 265s (?) with custom center caps…

Rodrez’s engine bay on his S2000. I have shots of the whole cars somewhere in the mix. It’ll pop-up…

You all know this NSX by now I’m sure. Be ready to see a lot more of it in about 3 weeks on newstands everywhere…

Marouj’s hatch is pictured above and this S2000 is his younger brother’s…

Sheepey and Arn’s cars always draw crowds…

Phaze2 Salem and his new concave TE set-up. These wheels were in pretty bad shape but Mikeyyyy had them repaired and refinished and they look as good as new on Salem’s TSX…

Jared and OldmanJames’ S2000s…

James’ S2000 just came out of paint recently and it looks pretty good with the Spoon bumper…

Arn’s hydrogen-powered Integra…

Loved this hatch…

Arnel surprised everyone with some new additions to his hatch. I had no idea he was doing any of this and I stood there for a while just staring at all the new stuff…

First obvious change is the ITBs and you can see the new radiator lines here…

…a closer look reveals the relocated water neck…

…and the tucked radiator…

Here is what it all looks like from the side…

…and from a distance…

…Not really sure what was going on here…

Mike G’s triumphant return…I walked back a couple more times to get some pics of the Tank so keep an eye out for those…

Plan: B Motorsports custom b-series valve cover with removable timing cover…

Chargespeed fenders…

This is the worst possible picture ever of DPK Slappy but I forgot to include it in the first part that spotlighted all the people of Eibach. It was nice to meet him and talk to him for a bit and he also helped me take some pictures at Northwood Pizza. He’s super happy in this picture because he was looking at this…

S2kjay’s engine bay…

Very nice purple hatch from ATS Garage…

I stopped by to talk to Anh for a bit. He was showing me his new wheels that didn’t get finished in time and just talking to me about a bunch of other random stuff…

Teal everywhere…

…even his oil catch can and subframe at coated in teal…

I also asked Anh how it felt to be up in the front for a change and how far his build has come since last year’s Eibach. If you look at pics from 09, you can see his Integra parked in the back and it looked completely different from the Super Street cover car that it is now…

Morgan’s EK9…

Sam from As1 showed up with a new Spoon Sports front bumper…It’s pretty aggressive and changes the whole look of the car, thumbs up from me…

Frank from Downstar Inc. showing off his nuts…

This dude had a Chronicles sticker on his valve cover…thanks for representing…

Gonna stop the coverage here for today…keep an eye out tomorrow for the next set…
