Working to have it done for Classic Japan!
As you know 11 week old babies make it hard to get shed time, so I took the day off yesterday to try and get a few jobs knocked over.
She now has a new exhaust system from some where up near the front, all the way through to a new muffler and tail pipe. It is now so quiet. Possibly quieter than the one year old Commodore in the driveway lol. I had to check it was still running the first time I pulled up at a set of lights.
So Long asked about a sound system. I am going to run out of time (and permitted spending funds) to put the retrosound system in that I wanted. And stupid me left the suitcase stereo in the squareback even though the guy wasn't that fussed about it.
Still, that means I get to make another suitcase stereo... or in this esky stereo! Bought some speakers from Autobarnz today..(thanks Will!) and slotted them into the old "rat" esky I have had stuffed away in the garage. Shame they aren't retro looking speaker grilles, but oh well!
So when its sitting in the luggage area it will look like this from behind
And like this from the cabin side
This is what she looks like inside
I will slot this mini-amp (on its way from ebay) into the glovebox (or maybe even the old ashtray if it fits). This is an improvement on the one in the Celica - it has a radio!
Putting it in the glove box will mean easy to run power to, and easy to use the remote to change radio stations or plug in the ipod.
This means the dash will retain the classic look m too as I will install the old parts car radio into the radio slot on the dash. No one will be any wiser.
Will just have to run some speaker wire under the carpet and poke it out in the rear luggage area. Add a couple of connectors so I can disconnect them easy and take the esky out if need be, and there will be tunes ready to go for Classic Japan
