Ooh! Also ordered a set of these:


Money is tight so progress will be painfully slow, but just collecting up bits and bobs that should come in useful.

Found a space under the dash to mount a 4 channel Class D amp, on its side on a frame perhaps made from roofing strut brace.

Run two channels for some 6.5" component drivers up front, and bridge the other two for a sub, that way most of the wiring stays up front, and only a speaker cable needs to be run to the boot, simpler, and easier to disconnect if load space is required.

Big plans, small bank balance Still, we shall see what happens...

Okay, ordered some alloys

The subtle look might be out of the window on this one though
17" x 7.5 wrapped in Falken ZE914's.
These wheels were about £150 cheaper than the "mature" option, bit strapped for cash but needed something to roll on, and those crusty OEM 15's with 65 profile tyres make it like driving a bouncy castle!

Will post some pics when they arrive, i guess most people will not be too keen on them but hey, time will tell

look like they're sticking out quite a bit...?













they look good, better when on though obviously! are you going to diy your old wheels as winter wheels?
gotta say, i'd be happy enough with your polishing results after those scratches/scuffs , and if you've got rust to deal with, then the faintest of scuff marks (that you know only you will see) aren't worth worrying about

Thanks guys!
The scratches were a setback, and will need to get the rust sorted A.S.A.P, but pretty pleased with how its going so far.

Haha! Yeah the wheels do poke out a little in that pic!

May sit a tiny bit prouder than OEM when fitted too, as they are 7.5J ET 35 as opposed to 6J ET 45, a 9mm drop from difference in size and very minor stretch on the tyres should see them legal though.

Keeping the 15's for winters was indeed the plan, DIY sounds interesting, may have to look into that, good thinking sir!

Will be some slow going from now on im afraid, the rims will be paid off in a couple of months, but need one or two bits and bobs like window rubbers and a scuttle panel etc.

Thanks again for looking, will try to update soon

Cheers Cooks buddy! Definitely going to be a slow mover, but mainly budget constraints holding things back

Got to make sure anything spent is done so wisely, thanks for looking BTW
