No worries man. That's not a lot of money compared to other brands. And, I like your advice about sound and trying to do the same here on a smaller budget. Love the Focal speakers and highly recommended.

 

Best of luck with the build and will be following the progress.

They do look very sweet! So far, the bass response is a bit tighter but I haven't driven the car yet. Will give you an update tomorrow. Rattle from the door is gone, which is brilliant :)

 

My thoughts about the Boom Mats were to buy them to protect the speakers 1st of all, to reduce any rattle and to improve bass response. So far, I think it ticks all those boxes.

Today had a little bit of time and there was no rain. Got the Boom Mats that Lenny sent over. It was not that hard to do as I have removed the panels way too many times before. Guess I could do it in my sleep at this stage :P

Small hole in the Boom Mat, thread the wire through and connect to speakers. Refit speakers and test before putting the panels back. Also, I fitted some new clips which I had bought off ebay to replace the ones that were broken. No more rattles in the doors now. Few pictures :)

Nice. Another good reason now for me to get the card. Next on the to do list: card, then Hammerite Red+Black. Then wait for a sunny day :)

That's what I was guessing. I saw it in the local hardware store and was so tempted to get it. Front red and rear drums black for me, just to lift the car a bit. Did you just use one big tin for all the callipers?

Liking the new dash colour and the painted callipers. What type of paint did you use for the callipers?

Maybe try some/lots of WD40 to loosen it up. My front wipers were a nightmare to remove. Good luck :)

yes i drink two or three per day so if you need a spare let me know :)

Also helps pain killers work faster too :lol:im on these 3 times a day aswell,
2 x 50mg Tradol
1 x 50md Diclac
2 x 25mg Paracetamol
1 x 50mg Melfen
The joys of a disc out in the back while the vertebrae hit the nerve, but the pink elephant here says I'm gonna be okay,
Thinking of taking up cycling with Luas Armstrong :lol:

 

 

Interesting combo there Lenny. Out of the lot, I reckon the Tradol is the most powerful/effective one. Side effects include constipation. So watch what you are eating and add more roughage to your diet, just in case ;)

Btw, double check the dose of Paracetamol as it's either 500mg or 1000mg three to four times per day :)

 

Back on topic, carbon wing mirrors are really nice. They look the part and with your car colour adds a bit of bling, in a good way :)

What's next on the list of mods?




#390778 "taking Oval To Blue Horizon" Lenny's Build Thread 2010-2013

Posted by Hassen on 27 July 2014 - 10:15 PM

Still...working on a Sunday and getting called in just when the F1 race was getting exciting with the rain etc! Not fun and especially for the rubbish rate that we get paid at as it's off site call. I honestly would pay less taxes and have more money if I didn't do the calls every week :(

 

Don't you worry Lenny, you will be back as soon as your back is mended and complaining about being at work then :P

Yea, I had my nct done a few months ago. I will find the paperwork tomorrow evening when I get home from work (stuck in work on a Sunday Not nice) and let you know what my emissions were. 




#390644 Mightycarmods Build Thread: Gramps 11 Second Car

Posted by Hassen on 27 July 2014 - 03:13 PM

I agree with you Lenny. It will be a lonely trip back for Marty. That car, once tuned, is gonna be a beast. From the outside, it doesn't look too modded. The only give away is the sound from the exhaust. Love how the springs are pink and donated from another car. Bilstein shocks ftw! I plan on getting them at some point for my car...next year :P

Kei to the City is a wicked movie. All shot over 2-3 days I think and such an emotional story as well.Well worth a watch. Also, the soundtrack to it is pretty awesome. It went Number 1 in a few countries on iTunes. Not for everyones taste but also worth a listen, especially the last track in the movie. Enjoy :)

Looks cool :)

Well said Lenny. At least you have a plan. I just make it up as I go along :P

Back on topic. What do you reckon would be the amount of horsepower from the engine once they are done? My guess is upwards of 400bhp!




#390508 2014 Upgrades

Posted by Hassen on 26 July 2014 - 11:01 PM

That's the least I could do man :)

To be honest, the front speakers are doing most of the work. The rears are just barely heard for rear fill and I think that will stay like that as they tend to muddy up the sound if I do it 50/50 front/rear. I just wanted to have working rear speakers to be used when I do have passengers in the rear, which isn't that often. Once I get the clips next week, I will take off the front door cards and install the Boom Mats. Can't wait to fit them and hear the difference.

That is some serious bit of kit you got there! I dare not ask the price of the whole thing :P

I have read up about Audison but never had the chance to hear them in person. Are you going to bother with rear speakers at all? Any sort of advice for extracting the best out of a sound system. This is my sound project if you had an recommendations. Thanks
