To day I R been mostly frustrated...

Well dragged my sorry ass out of bed at 11, yes i know but i was a bit poorly yesterday and slept loads so couldent sleep last night hense the lay-in.

So I though the first job to try was the spray window tint for my rear sides, some people have seen the loft insulation sound deadining in my car which is not a cool look.

This did'nt go well :mad2: There was not a lot of room to get a good spray and the stuff just ran. Oh well i have a plan to fix it.

Next job was to loose the boot lettering ready for the new letters i got a few weeks ago.

Appart from my T Cut has vanished all was well, the letters came off easily with a credit card and some bug/tar remover cleaned up the residue.

I really need to sort out the boot...

However the amps are on eBay at the mo and the new more powerful ones are soon to be ordered to I am not wasting time on this until I have everything thats going in.
I may sor a mounting position for the 4 chan on the floor as that is staying (JJ just upgraded the 4 chan to a PowerPlant 800w :ihih:)

I then went on to my side skirts which have been sat in my room for months waiting to be finished and fitted. Got them out side and gave them a wet-n-dry, just need one more coat of silver and lots of laqueror.

Started to look at changing my pollen filter but could'nt find the stupid right sized torque bit to undo the bolts :mad2: Note to self must have a tool sort out and get organised.

a quick and easy job i wanted done was cloth covre the plastic door sill trim so did that without problems :LOL:

All the subs and amps are on eBay, going to JBL GT5 12"s and 3 Vibe A4 amps 500wrms per sub 3000W total :mad5::yikes:(y)

Oh parts of my dash will be out this week too lol

And the PP cost me 7 quid in the end as a mate brought my EN 4 chan for 40 and the PP was 47 ;)

Should sound a lot better Chris for sure the JBL's are top bits of kit for the price!, you redoing the box or going to just use this one with care for now and rebuild for next year?.

I think the box is sound, will be putting a second sheet of 18mm on the rear before mounting the amps. I wont be able to play much above 1K until I get a second battery or two.

Looking good there Chris - although your day sounds as frustrating as mine with far too many "rain stops play"s :frown2:

Good Idea on the hammerite dude, mine are already tinted but you can still see through them slightly so I may follow that idea as it will not matter as it will be painted on the tint!, did you paint the rear screen too??.

Hammerite?? :eek6::yikes: I mean it looks great...but wouldn't do that to mine, think will stick to getting it professionaly tinted using film. I think with what you have in the back of your Coug you've done the right thing (y)
