    I think I like the bug deflector. It saves you a chipped front end as well.

    She’s actually got a few chips, so it covers those! I dig it, going to drive it sometime this week and see if it vibrates a bunch.

    Had some time today, so I investigated why my sound system sounds crap. Went straight into checking the speakers. They are knackered. So I'm now half way through a new install. I had a set of focal components kicking about and a reasonable amp. Woohoo. I've got 1 side fitted in the door along with sound deadening and wired. All ran to under the drivers seat. That would be passenger side to you guys lol. Started running the wires to the headunit and the other side but it's been 30°c here today. I called it a day once the sun burn kicked in. So for another day I've gotta wire up to the headunit and run the wires from the centre console to the other door and fit the speakers along with sound deadening. Oh and fit the amp. Certainly cant be forgetting that. I intend to add a 10" sub at some point in the future but well see how it goes. So far I'm loving the fact that this hasn't cost me a penny (dime) as it's all gear I had laying around. Bonus. Oh yeah, ground point for the amp, any one know of a good spot as close as possible to under my seat?

    Took it for its annual road worthiness test today. Aka MOT here in the UK. Pleased to announce it passed. Woohoo. I also had the wheel alignment done at the same time as I've had to change so many parts in the last few months. It's good to be mobile again. I'd forgotten how headbangingly loud it is with it straight through side exit exhaust. Definitely gonna be changing it to something less anti social in the future.

    Installed a pair of dobinsons coils to support the extra weight of the drawer system and fridge.

    Towing is getting easier. The temp gauge is staying below half-way. I was a little worried about heat with my 6 inch KC daylighters blocking the grill/radiator. But isn’t a prob at all...Got a 14# today wind kicked up fierce had to get on plane...,FE83A9B0-5504-4503-84E7-E04B67845600.jpg
