going to put a 22 inch lcd in the floor of the boot as well.....see how it all pans out i guess, i hope it all works.

well i managed to do something this today, i gave the shed a clean and had a mate pop round so we then stripped the inside of the car out and then put some cable in for the battery relocation.
also got a fully sealed battery box, for the power cable i didn't want to run any in the engine bay so i bought this studs that go through panels which is allot neater... also got some remote battery terminals which look good...
also got some sound deadening rust preventive gear for inside the boot

well i got a little bit done this weekend,
i fitted the battery box so it is all secured now, put the last teminal in the engine bay for the positive cable to goto the starter.
ran all the cables in the car for the positive and negative.
bogged up the sub box and then smoothed it, still got a little more smoothing to do on it though..
also started on the fibre glass panel that goes over where the amp is mounted, thats the other thing that i done was mount the amp on a angle that i liked..

Image
i was doing this on the wreck out the back so that i don't get any fibreglass on my car
Image

Image

Image

Image
trial fitting of the new fibreglass panel, still have to putt some matting on it still to make it a bit stonger.

Image

see this is where the starter will connect to so there is no power cable running in the engine bay apart from a little bit running from this connecter to the starter to keep it a little neater

That's the first time i have seen that sort of electrical terminal before. Brilliant idea for running through panels, looks clean and is waterproof!

Love the car, plenty of time and effort gone into it. I love seeing stock ordinary cars go from boring to gnarly.

Again, well done!
