DLS the speakers I've put in are Alpine 17cm 2way coaxial, i think the originals were 6inch so I've gone up half an inch. Ive just put a under seat sub in which is this: http://www.caraudiocentre.co.uk/prod...11_p-31239.htm its an active sub so has an amp built in. No sound deadening yet. The sound is a lot better though biggest improvement is that i can hear the radio with the roof down on the motorway and it stills sounds good quality. I need to add some more pictures and the sub install will be among them.

Flipz they sure are!!! i used a 3m kit, it did the job quite nicely.

FBB thanks for looking, yes pictures are coming, getting round to it is the problem now . Ive also just added a cusco upper front strut bar, and that needs to be shown.

FWIW, you'd be better off buying components rather than coaxials if you have an MY02 or later

These are what I think d has:

These are the component equivalent and would improve the sound further:

Nice work, congratulations.

You have bought the fastest colour! That's a clean car and good BBs are worth a travel. I traveled from Eastern Finland to get mine .

Little bit of an update, got some new parts from Alloycraft and some shiny dress up bolts, things are looking good with the blue scheme.









Also got the cross member cover from Alloycraft, can just see it in these photos.

It's been a while since my last update. Not had much to do thankfully.
However, recent posts on this forum regarding rusty boots made me worried, so thought I'd pull the carpet up and have a look..... I was greeted to this sight:



Not the worst, turned out to be surface rust, always good to catch it early though!! Removed the sound deadening, removed the rust, treated with Kurust and applied a few layers of Hammerite under body seal with added Waxoyl.



The next problem was... where was the water coming from . After keeping an eye on it over some heavy downpours, and searching through this forum, the water seemed to be coming through the vent behind the rear bumper.
I guess its time to take the bumper off.... Oh look more rust , i had already taken the crash bar off before taking photos, all surface rust on that, but a lot of it.



Removed all the surface rust and applied the same treatment as the boot floor. Also removed that vent, applied a heavy amount of sealant and reattached, hopefully no more water will get back in there now!!



All better .. Still to do the brackets for the light and the exhaust hangers both of which have seen better days.
