Looking really good, what did you clean that engine with mate? Looks spotless!


cheers fella, soaked engine first, after removing battery. then sponge and hot soapy water and gave it a real real good scrub. then any rusty parts that were visable. sanded and touched up with black mettalic hammerite. then silver for battery cover. :)

here is a pic of the beggining of my ICE ! :)

got 2 speakers wired up so far, there small but loud! there out of a panasonic ghetto blaster, really good quality, and free ofcourse.

carpeting it tomorrow and getting my sub in. not going over the top, probably around 400 watts. i just want clean crisp sounds not just boom boom






cut the wood out of some thin light weight stuff i found lying in my shed, the hardest part was getting the speaker mounts symetrical but got there in the end

Slight Warning - well not really a warning.

house speakers ( stereo TV etc ) run at 8 ohms where as standard car speakers run 4 ohm.
you may have issues with distortion as the amp will run 4 ohm itself
