Took some quick photos this afternoon. Apologies for the poor quality,i used a too high of ISO to compensate for the crap weather,and didn't realize the amount of grain until I uploaded them onto the desktop











I've even sorted out the front number plate! Fitted a smaller one too (9x7)

Did someone say Mk2 dash conversion?







The Mk2 door cards need some custom brackets made,and the hole for the window winder was in the wrong place so they left them. Heres the fitment of the Mk1 doorcards with the Mk2 dash



Unless you know its there,you cant really tell!

A MASSIVE thank you goes to the guys at H&S Performance in Norwich for the fantastic job in the conversion and for fitting all the other plastic trims and carpet!

Washed with Meguiars Gold Glass Shampoo,followed by Megs Ultimate Polish and Ultimate Wax



Me and Mrs Reeper then embarked on a 3hr journey to the Birmingham NEC for the Autosport International Show. First time I had been to this show and I loved it! Certainly will be making a return visit in the future! Here are a few photos I took aswell as others so far

Update!

Just before Christmas I started to gather bits and pieces for the new Audio install. You may remember back at Christmas I got these:



Unfortunately theres very little photos of the build itself as I done bits and pieces during my lunch breaks and after work at night.

I first started by removing the door cards,cleaning the insides of the doors and applying the sound deadening





Next I routed fresh speaker cable/RCA

Boot > Dash
Seats > Dash
Doors > Dash

Wasn't an easy task routing the new wires through the door,especially as the speaker cable is quite thick.

With those done it was time to mount the Cross Overs. I originally thought mounting them to the centre dash bar was a good idea,so I connected all the wires and mounted it. Tried to refit the glove box and it wouldn't shut,doh! So I managed to tuck them along the side of the glove box and the fuse box on the other side.

Next was mounting the new speakers and tweeters. Speakers were a doddle and fitted with zero problems. The tweeters needed mounting on the top of the of door card. So I cut a hole and gradually filed it bigger so it was a snug fit. I then made some brackets to hold the tweeters in place. Luckily the Hertz Tweeters have a small screw in the centre,which was perfect to use along with the fixing screw for the door card crash pad.

With those mounted and wired up,i got the door cards back together and it was time to wire up the amps. This was pretty straight forward,until I came across an old RCA lead had snapped inside the terminal on the Amp. After much fiddling about and prodding,that was sorted and it was time to hook up the live to the battery.

It works!

I changed the settings on the Head Unit to suit,i haven't done anything with the amps yet as I need to do some reading up first. But with it being 'out of the box' its a MASSIVE improvement over stock! Here are some phone videos

I just need to wait for some dry weather so I can remove the seats and route the new speaker cable through the seats and fit the new speakers :)

Gonna bore you with some more random photos. Its gonna be at least another 6 weeks until I have another decent update :(

The car is filthy,and this was a last minute decision :) I only had the camera and tripod,so had to rely on the camera settings and lights in the car park,which didn't help a great deal :/
