Well- the sun is out again, thinkin of washing the van- I fitted a new 12" f:*off sub in the back yesterday, wired up my Recaro's (how did i ever survive without electric seats??)

So im gonna go for a drive in my T4 just for the sake of it.

Its been a while since i did that- nowhere to go, no time to keep, just me, the van & some sounds (a bit of the Prodigy followed by some Chems i think- keep it nice and mellowI::D).

I might take a drive along the shore-front and check out the ladies looking good.

Man i LOVE the hot weather!A:A:

Anyone out there doin anythin interesting in their T4 today??T:A::D:DA:T:

I thought the engine was f:*ed when i had it on last night- it shook the whole van so much that i thought i was runnin on 3 cylinders!!T:T:T:T:T::D
Ive read a few threads about guys hooking up subs under their seat bases-all i can say is that after feeling the vibes mine gives off from the box in the back- they must be MENTAL!:cool:
Shake yer fillings loose that will!LOL:LOL:LOL:LOL:

Just finished fitting an awning rail to side of van.

Couldn't justify cost of a Reimo Multirail, no matter how good it looks. So off I went to the local camping shop and bought a 12' length of standard aluminium awning rail as used on caravans. 1/2 hour later,10 holes drilled in van, siliconed and stainless steel screws fitted. Job done.

During week I fitted some 1/2 leather Recaro seats out of a Rover, so I am now off out for a test drive, before next week ends trip to The Bus Stop Over.

Yeah, after your PM I decided to weld bars across similar to how you did yours, but at the moment it is a bit tight under the steering wheel. Need to go a proper run before I make any changes though. Considering either a smaller steering wheel or cutting an inch or so off the seat base and welding on new mounting brackets. I will take some pictures and do a post later, will also show how standard awning rail looks and see what people think.

Might finish off polishing my velle, it's not a show van but I like to try and polish out the rust, and I might get round to retinting my widow after my sons peeled off the old tint. Could even get round to fitting my screens and dvd player, Vibe sub and some amps(just need a new head unit as the other has blown).

The sun's not shining here and hasn't been all day, I'm offended that someone would just pressume that because the sun is shining where they are that it will be everywhere. Because of these assumptions and the whole 'the sun's shining here, I'm better than you' feeling to this thread I have no option but to call it a day on here............ oh hang on, wrong thread!!! Rasp:



Disclaimer:- I'm just trying to lighten the mood, I don't agree with the bans for reasons I won't go into T:.

Hi Jim,
The 10cm speakers do fit in the dash, but you'll have to lose your side blowers, the magnets are way to big and u need to lose the fan ducting if you want them to sit flush. You might be able to get around that problem with some bendy pipe but I never used the side blowers anyway. They sound great!
