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?

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.

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 :)

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!

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

Liking what you done with the car. Very interested in the audio side of things for what you have planned as I am just finishing my audio upgrade in my car and always trying to learn something new from other projects :)

Schweet! Love the show and the guys. Pretty epic build this one. They keeps saying its next level and I think turbocharging that engine is bringing their game up. Honestly impressed by Turbo Yoda aka Allan with his wealth of car engineering knowledge. The amount of fabrication in this car is insane. I just hope they get a smarter interior and get a nicer bodykit on the car. Think with this amount of power, being stealth will be a bit of a waste on this car. Just my 2 cents :P

Quick pictures of what I did today. Sound deadened the rear doors and wired the rear speakers to the amplifier. Project sound system overhaul is about 80% completed. Left with 7 sheets of Silent Coat which I plan on putting in the front footwells of the car to try to reduce some of the vibrations coming from the engine. Then, once funds allow it, I will get more Silent Coat and do the bonnet and rest of the car floor. That's still up for debate though.


Also, thanks a million to the legend that is Lenny. He donated a pair of Boom Mats to my project and I plan on fitting them once I get the new clips for the front door. Saves me taking off the door cards twice. Reckon the Boom Mats will improve bass response even further. Thanks again Lenny :)

Stock rear speakers



Stock speaker carefully ripped out with a hacksaw :P and Silent Coat sparingly applied as opposed to what was done to the front door.




Vibe Slick 6 speaker wired up to amplifier.





That's all for now folks :D

Quick update: Didn't do much the last few days. This afternoon, rewired the Blaupunkt GTA470 with a nice set of Vibe 4 AWG kit. Thought might as well upgrade the whole electrical system and clean up the mess of wires since I wanted to get the most out of the speakers. 


Took an hour as well to fine tune the sound to my liking. Lots of knob tweaking and listening to subtle changes. WIth the new wiring, the annoying hum/whizz that was present before is nearly all gone. I had repositioned the power wire as well. Happier now that I know that the wiring can supply clean power to both amps without any issues. This covers it as well for future upgrades regarding electronics :)


Tomorrow, depending on weather, I plan on stripping the rear doors, sound deaden them, install and wire the rear Vibe Slick 6 speakers. These will only be used for very light rear fill. Thought there was no point in getting anything fancy and I already had them.
