Ta for the info. I did manage to get it out eventually, it took all my sixteen stone swinging on the strong arm with a 14mm impact allen key. I cleaned up the threads with a wire brush, (both internal & external) wrapped the plug threads with a generous helping of PTFE tape, & screwed it back in. I couldn't torque it up as my torque wrench doesn't go that high. I swung on the strong arm instead and it seems to be working fine now. Thanks again for the info.

I wouldn't paint them purple! It may be your favourite colour but if you ever want to sell the car, remember that not all people like purple. At least if you paint them black it's a neutral colour & most people would like it. Black wheels would also look cool on a black car. Hope this helps.

In Topic: Tripple Deck > Single Din

Hi Leo. When I bought the single din conversion kit, it came with the standard ISO wiring adapter. As the stereo I fitted had this wiring, it made life a lot easier, there was no butchering of wires, it just plugged in. Further more, when I fitted the Parrot hands free kit, it just plugged into the ISO wiring. I'm chuffed to bits with the results.

Try using a proper CD burning program like Nero. The format you should be using is CDA. If its not MP3 compatible, it wont play MP3s. Hope this helps.

You could power them by using an inverter. I have a 17" lcd monitor and it uses 1 Amp which is 240w. I might be a bit put off by having 240V running through the car though. Anyway, good luck.
