I recently got a chance to take care of a project that has really been on my mind. Ive felt like the center console of my car was being dulled down by the fake wood so I decided to change it. I took the existing paneling off and refinished it to metallic silver it came out great. The new paint really gives the interior of the car some life. At the same time I built a new housing for my Sirius radio. I also upgraded my head unit by purchasing a cable that will allow me to control and charge my IPod through my head unit. The cable for that comes out below the ash tray.
Since my last post I have completed a couple upgrades. I most recently installed a RalliTEK rear sway bar, 22mm. The rear of the car is more under control now.
You can see a substantial difference between the stock (roughly 14mm) bar and the RalliTEK bar (22mm).
Staying out of the cold VA air.
I recently installed a Perrin crank pulley as well.
So for my birthday I decided to treat myself to two fun afternoon project. First I installed a grounding kit. I didnt expect so much of a difference with such an inexpensive mod, no more jumping gears. Secondly, I took 2 hours out of the day to pop out the orange reflectors in my headlights and replace the orange bulbs with clear ones. Its made a hell of a difference to the look of the car.
Custom Intake Installation
Just transfered one of my 12" Alpine Type Rs (4 Ohm), the MTX Thunder 81000 D amplifier, and a 1 Farad RockfordFostgate Capacitor from 1998 Ford Explorer Sport to the new car. I made a sealed box and stand from MDF for the sub and amp. I bought a new Alpine 9856 Mp3 Cd Player for the car. Ive run all the wiring for the Sirius satellite radio, but have not decided where to put the actual unit. I have no pictures of the car yet, but I do have a few pictures of the box I made. I think Im going to go ahead and make the other box and wait to install it. I have no roof rack for skis, so i need the space inside the trunk so Ill just put the sub in during the off-season until I can pick up a Thule.
I built the box out of MDF used wood filler to fill in all the holes from the nails and all the seams. I used spray glue to put down some felt/carpet (matches interior perfectly) on the box. I filled the box with some synthetic stuffing before I put the sub in. I built the amp and cap stand out of the same material.
I just installed the Sirius radio. I mounted the unit under the main console, I think it came out pretty good. Some did give me a good suggestion for another possible location though. They said to take out one of the storage spots below the head unit and put a piece of wood in its place and secure the Sirius radio to that. I think that will provide a more accessible location.
