Update:
Reserved online and drove up to Halfords today :)
Picked up the AutoLeads Acoustic Carpet and a can of EvoStik High contact adhesive.

I also had this previously purchased item to be part exchanged as i didn't need it in the end:

IMG_20141229_162431_zpsl3khry6_edit_1419

I had purchased them along with the pack of yellow crimp ring terminals which i used on the DVR system installation.

IMG_20141229_162443_zpsofdqad6_edit_1419

as i was unsure exactly which size i required at the time i became; quite confused with the array of stock Halfords had to offer in this particular category ;)

Now here's the fun part :)
When purchasing them i received 15% Discount,
When returning them i received 15% more than i initially had paid.
Then i received 15% Discount on today's purchases :lol:
Got 30% Discount on the can of EvoStik yo!!

Saved 6.60 on today's purchases :)

Just ordered my amp, capacitor, wire & RCA port

  Sounds good what's the RCA Port?

Sick of this f'ing app crashing on me. Written two updates and it's crashed twice before I had chance to copy/back it up
Here's a picture of my heater switches changed to Blue

Also, I've had a message from the shop I bought my amp from saying that my amp will be delivered before the 5th of January

I personally don't bother with the app neither,
I copy quotes to my email then respond below it,
When completed i copy the whole lot and paste in to a post.
This way if it crashes nothing is lost.
The blue illumination looks great,
If the amp is shipping within the UK then it should surely arrive within 2 days.

Having watched the most recent video of MightyCarMods i will no be dubbing the rear DVR Camera as "the chopped Camera" :) all vehicles saw via this camers have been chopped :lol:

Here's the video giving me the idea :lol:
See watermark on the last camera where the super fast legacy pulls away from the S2000

Gotta find out whats the smallest size DMB.co.uk can print then mount it to the glass to constantly appear on the camera like a watermark.


#440587 Mk2.5 Vent Surrounds?

Posted by Lenny on 30 December 2014 - 11:31 PM

 
Thanks Lenny, they look really good :)

Well worth every penny mate,
I've got the glovebox strip and vent surrounds,
I plan to purchase the speaker grill surrounds in the near future and leave it at that,
The other stuff is nice but i reckon it would look tacky if all of his items were fitted to the one car.

Anpost... I wonderd how the label on the box Hassen sent me with amp in was pronounced! Aha...
See that's what happens after sitting through two 2 1/2 panto performances & re fitting a plug... Your mind starts to look for the slightest bit of entertainment! At the time I found what I wrote slightly entertaining.. Now I look back & think "well that's just embarrassing" haha!
I'm so tired

:o Just as i began to give up all hope of finding the only Christmas present recieved this year that i had assumed was accidentally incinerated along with some wrapping paper on boxing day it has appeared in the bottom of a Gift bag.

there is a guy on ebay that does the brushed ones if you enter plate focus it should come up his handle is alanos350z

  

Thanks mate, found them and they look good cheers

ive fitted Alan's original stainless steel vent surrounds,
There far better than the Chinese stuff,
Just take care when pressing them on to the dash that you don't slice your finger as there laser cut and quite sharp,
But harmless once fitted.

Ooh! My mistake!
So, you could live just across the border with a Royal Mail post office a few miles away & get charged a fortune for it to be delivered to your house... But normal rates if you drive for 10 minutes? That's just silly!

no mistake mate I've no problem with anyone, i grew up on the border county and yeah that's how it is lol

So do Royal Mail have to transfer it to a local post service? Or just deliver to you at a massive cost?

Royal Mail pass it over to "AnPost" (on pust) which is the mon-fri postal service in Ireland we don't get Saturday post.

Could be a business idea for you... Your own postal company! Start of as a man & his FORD van.. Or a focus with a trailer then build upto a fleet of fords! ;)
Then you'd have hundreds of fords to mod aswell!

Ah see now your just taken the Mickey alltogether Kieran Seriously. :/

One of these might be good for you Lenny! I managed to get one cheaper earlier in the year and they're a must have now!!
eBay 191092908895

Looks good mate,
Although I'm at the end of my wiring plans now i anticipate using another four maybe five crimp ring terminals and that's about it,
Local motor factors sells them for 50 cents each so ill just purchase there and be done,
By the time i ship that kit over it would cost me almost double mate,
I've purchased gold plated female spade crimps for the speakers already so more/less sorted.
However if i was starting to mod the car at the beginning that kit would have been well worth investing in Cheers

Small bit of progress:

Went to Halfords yesterday and purchased replacement crimp ring terminal for the earth feed on the USB kit they were 2.75 but i got them for 2.33 using the forum Discount Card ;)

IMG_20141229_162443_zpsofdqad6_edit_1419

DVR system is now hard wired in to car. Nice blue light in rear of glovebox :)

IMG_20141229_170249_zps9wtnngj_edit_1419

Got bored yesterday and purchased can of grey paint to seal the MDF panel in the boot compartment,

IMG_20141229_141609_zps8u3zgo8_edit_1419

I mainly wanted to colour the interior cavity back area as the front will be sprayed with Aerosol Glue prior to coating with black Autoleads Carpet when the holes have been drilled for the 4 Channel Amp.

IMG_20141230_145236_zpsa9qgraqh.jpg

Just sprayed a small coat on the front area to rough it up assisting the bonding at later date.

I'll be running it every 20 mins with it being cold weather! Think my battery's coming to it's end.. It's not terrible but it's not what it was when I bought the car meaning it's deteriorated very fast! It had new water when I bought it as it wasn't great!
That must be a hint from your daughter to stop modding the car! Haha... You must've been gutted! :(

When the battery gives in mate you should go for a Bosch battery they do two types for every car,
One standard and a slightly bigger capacity one for if you run accessories.
That's when i plan to upgrade anyways.

Yeah i am gutted mate was stuck on to some wrapping paper and she was opening everyone's present for them,
Vicki got the Dove set but on the wrapping was the Halfords Voucher has taken me four days to come to terms to discuss it :lol:
I'll never stop modding the car lol don't know what I'm gonna do when it's done.

Going to play some music whilst I'm at the car tomorrow/Thursday just to try get them as broken in as I can before January

Ensure you run the engine every hour to top up the battery.
Look forward to seeing the amp fitted,
Capacitor will surly cushion the demands they say you need 0.5 Fared for every 500 watts

Cant wait to continue my own project mid January
Only thing i got for Christmas was a Gift Card for Halfords and my five year old daughter threw it in the fire :lol:
Had planned to get myself some Autoleads enclosure Carpet
