Well the latest is that i'm not happy with the way the engine sounds so it's being ripped apart again.
Looks like i'm going with new standard P&L & will be getting to pod later in the year, prob July now :(

I do have 6x9's & my old car i had components, i bin the rear panel & get some mdf & cut it to shape so it fits nicely, then covered it in fabric, the speaker box stuff or if you want grey go to a cloth store & find some the colour you want  :wink:

 Cheers,  I could just see them in the feature on u'r car... and they looked neatly done..  couldnt work out how you did it.   Thats a natural sealed box in that bit so they should sound good too!  8)

Engine is rebuilt, put new liners in & new big end shells so it's almost a complete rebuild, just a few little bits to sort out & i'll fire her up, then it's a short run, drop the oil, new oil & run for a few hundred miles before sticking in some decent stuff.
Can't wait to fire it up :)

Scratched my drivers wing a little though so not happy about that :(
On the plus side i sorted the rattle coming from the timing chain, turns out the tensioner hadn't quite come out far enough so the chain was a little loose.

Good to hear its all back in good shape again now  8)  and killed the rattle... that was worth all the hassle just to sort that out..  :lol:   btw...  those scratches can be fixed just by themselves without repainting the whole wing...   try Chips-away  :wink:
