Absofreakinglutely awesome! Love it when a plan comes together. Keep up the work as I can't wait to see the final results.
I am very surprised how I couldn't see much/any sound deadening on the metal floors used. Only the thick carpet to cut noise intruding the cabin. After driving in a Lexus and an Opel Insignia recently, the sound deadening levels in those cars were much better than the Ford. That's one thing that I would really like in my car as on the motorways, the noise can get tiresome.
Looking good there Lenny. It's all coming along nicely. I like how all the amps are on one side.
With regards to your wires, I put my 4 awg wires under the side sill on the left of the car. I just tucked them on the inside after going from behind the glovebox. I had to take out the glovebox to make that work.
Sadly can't help you out with rivets
As for the torx, let me know when you find out as it's something I too want to know.
Best of luck with the upgrade.
Gutted about Top Gear but still Clarkson should not punch other people.
Will have a quick look when I'm home tonight as I had a few links on Ebay.de for it. Have a look there as well as there's always deals to be had. How much is the cheapest place you found so far with shipping?
Cheapest place I found it with shipping was on www.Ebay.de Ebay Germany had a lot of them and they worked out cheaper than Uk counterparts. Guessing that it being manufactured in Germany helps.
Good luck with the talking. If you need an argument to help you convince the missus, tests show that it saves you about 13% fuel. They have it on their website in the tests for the Mustang GT. You would recoup that money very quickly if you drove a lot. Just saying
Heard only great things about the Eibach springs. A few members here have it on their Mk2.5 Focus. I was planning on getting them but got really tempted on getting the Bilstein B12 Pro Kit which consists of Bilstein B8 dampers and Eibach Pro Kit springs. Something else to consider if you planning suspension mods.
