Little bit of a game plan for the summer..   I'm bored with the metal floor in the back and going to complete the re-trim throughout the rear of the car.   I have a nice Alpine system but I dont want to turn the car into a bump and grind wagon  :lol:   so there wont be any extreme bass or subs in there anywhere.  Just some smaller quality components.

 I am going to trim all of the plastics in the back the same as the front in grey suede.. and adding a light weight false floor with a hidden area that will be also covered so wont be seen until the door is lifted.   Thinking of fitting the 4 channel Alpine amp in there so its hidden and then adding some small size (but quality) speakers..  maybe components neatly fitted into the suede trim.  They will be flush with the trim on the rear pillars and also hidden in the floor.

  It should all just look like a matching Suede trim when its done.. with a few discreet speakers at an angle towards the front.

  How it looks now.. 'before I start'  some speakers I was playing around with positioning..  but just testing where things will go at the moment.

 

   

   There was some masking tape on the dash whilst I was making these last Sunday afternoon..

    Just need to add the red buttons and fit them in and there done.

Judging from the rest of your work, it won't be any less than perfect  8)

 Hope ur all good matey! take it easy dude.

That will be awesome to see your 5 with a fresh new coat of paint  8)  looking forward to seeing how it all looks when its all done 8)

I think I'm all polished out.. lol..  havent been doing much of that lately..  I'm working on the trim this summer..  to finish the interior off.  Have designed the new rear quarter trims.. to house the speakers, been trying to get them fabricated out of carbon fibre..  my carbon guy is all booked up for a while, so waiting to hear from another fabricator at the moment.

After a bit of research, I've gone with Focal component speakers in the end..  they've exceeded my expectations already and thats before I have fitted them  :)   The frames and build quality of the speaker is awesome..  I've heard Focal before and was really amazed how good they sound, so should work out well in the end.  (going for quality sound rather than shaking the car sound lol)

The cones look like carbon fibre (but they are glass fiber)..  and the frames are in the same colour as the car, so will match the trim..
