added a new chrome and black steering wheel, bolted straight on, same pattern as original, new gear knob and handbrake handle, Hand stitched new gaiters for both. Fabricated some ‘pockets’ from a ‘Swift’ for the door panels and was content……again, not for long. I decided to upgrade the Sound System again, only this time I wanted, I was thinking…‘Showcar’. After loads of drawing / cutting/ material- stretching/ fibreglassing/ sanding/ filling, I was happy with the design. I wanted my new ‘Speaker Enclosure’ to look like it could have been a factory option and I think I achieved that.. see my photo! I had no idea about amplifier set-ups, so contacted a few places, read some audio mags and ended up with current system……..4 X 6” 2 Ways, 2 X 4” 2 Ways, standard in-dash tweeters and a 10” Sub. Very happy at this point, until someone asked, ‘Have you thought about making them for sale?’ NO!!, cries from the wife as she can already see it in my eyes. Think Evil Grin... so began ‘Speaker Enclosure 2’. When finished (got side tracked), Will house 4 x 4” 2 Ways, 4 x 6” 2 Ways and a 10” Sub, adding to the other 6 speakers in the front and middle of the car, will give me a total of 15 speakers before I add the upgraded 3 pairs of tweeters and crossovers and possibly will need a larger amp ? We’ll see.

I purchased my own ‘Fathers Day’ present, a new head unit with MP3 Facility, it’s easier, I know what I wanted. Added an i-pod charger/ holder/ tunes to radio….then got rid of CD changer out of glove box, Presto…unlimited music….no discs to carry around. For my birthday recently, my daughter and son-in- law spoilt me by purchasing a set of chrome rims I had been looking at for about 6 months. At 17 x 6.5, they really set the car off. I have been looking for a body kit but couldn’t decide, because of cost and design availability and my inability to speak / read Japanese, I contacted my mate, Dave, once again when you see his Cap, you can understand the ‘Spare Parts’ situation. This has what has kept me side- tracked from my speaker enclosure. I modified the front bumper, similar to the ‘Mola design’ which is at the paint shop as I’m typing this, I forgot to mention in all the ranting, my new exhaust, made by same people who did my intercooler pipes, with Quad Tips, cheaper than the Original Item. TTFN!
