Quote from: bobbe on September 22, 2022, 12:35Interesting - is there any information online about this?
Quote from: Gaz mr-s on September 22, 2022, 15:48Nope, I don't know of anyone else having done it. You need a drill & bits & a round file.Take off the under dash plastics & view how the column is controlled. Open the slot out of the guide at the top. A little achieves quite a lot.
Quote from: Fefelarue on September 27, 2022, 20:10After 2 months of waiting, I finally have one of these:So I booked my car into Powerflow in Mitcham for a full custom system. They had a slot 5 days away which I took, then realised there was a bit of work to do because I want a bumper-exit system.So I borrowed my mother's garage for an evening:took the bumper off:Then realised it was a Sunday evening, and I hadn't brought a deep enough 15mm socket to remove the crash-bar. But I had a hacksaw and an adjustable wrench (and am planning on running crash-bar-less) so I made it work:But on to the bumper: The plan was to have no rear grille, and to clean up the bumper a bit so it looks like it was like that from the factory. So here it is with the grille removed:Then with the little clips cut off:Then with the longer trims also cut off:Then I stuck the plate back on and drove it home like this:But wasn't happy with the plate positioning. It didn't really work with the "that could be OEM" look I want to go for.So I went to my workshop, grabbed a hammer, and turned this 3mm stainless wire....into this:Which goes on like this:Then finally drove it to Powerflow last night, picked it up today, and it currently looks like this:Thanks for reading!
Quote from: Hammond on September 27, 2022, 22:39Looking good so far! Is it sounding as you hoped?
Quote from: Ardent on September 27, 2022, 23:36Well played.Just my personal preference, I would look to lose some of the excess yellow of the plate.
Quote from: Topdownman on September 28, 2022, 09:14Impressive work. That hacksaw got a good workout! I thought you had some plastic grille to go in at first but in later photos I realised that was the floor mat!Any chance of making up a smaller crash bar that wouldnt be visible but would add a bit of strength/ protection back?
Quote from: Topdownman on February 4, 2023, 14:30Top work as ever. Any other plans for it?
Quote from: puma2 on February 8, 2023, 07:22 for some who hate wiring that is some top job there by the looks of it you time and effort will be rewarded on every drive out now when are you going to install mine now
Quote from: puma2 on February 25, 2023, 14:45 never say never now how much do you want ££££I do like the work you did and the placement
Quote from: Fefelarue on February 28, 2023, 17:42Thanks! To wire in your amp and speakers? Probably about what you'd pay for a road-legal MR2 fair to cheap for me glad to see how you did plus the satisfaction you get when done now get out there and enjoy all the work you put into your 2
