    Been a bit lazy when it comes to updates, the car is not far off being ready now.

    Couple of pics that show how I got round the Skoda sunroof motor being in the wrong place for the W8 light and the rotary switch to control it then the instal I have started in the boot.

    Need to do the door builds next

    Also been playing with some MoTeC displays, I'm quite liking the 12" dispaly

    Thanks guys

    Fitted some small speakers in the original tweeter places, they will be for some sound staging and will need some setting up.

    Next is the door builds which isn't as easy as I was hoping, pic to follow when I have got it right

    Started the door builds today, will have a 6", a 5 1/4" with tweeter

    Started with a piece of 10mm bolted to the door then used the adapters to fit aftermarket 6" speakers in a mk5 golf (rear speakers of the front doors) cut them down to fit in the space. Followed by a peice of 18mm to make a plate to fit both speakers on them

    Need to make the rest to make it look pretty but hopefully thats a job for tomorrow

    Started the morning thinking, god, what have I done and almost ripped it out to start again but after some thinking about it I decide to continue.

    Cut a piece to fit around the speaker plate and to form the pocket, cut out the area of the baffle plate and fixed it to the door panel.

    Then with it all in place I glued the 2 parts together, the plan being it will be screwed to the door panel and will come of with that but is also firmly bolted to the door so the 6" bass does not rattle about.

    I used some thick plastic sheet to form the bottom of the pocket

    The glue takes a while to set if not heated so I'll leave that to dry thoroughly before I remove the panels, I'll then make a piece to back the tweeter, fill and smooth with P38 and cover.

    Not sure weather to put a solid panel in front of the pocket or make a net style front
