Well I have been downloading my pictures from my camera and realised that those not at the Christmas do would not have had the oppertunity to see progress on my car(actually very few did anyway). So below are some of the progress pics.
I wish I could say that I have finished on the car but well simple answer to that is; no I have not, mainly due to various unforseen circumstances which are taking massive amounts of my time, which at present and the forseeable future remain a wee bit of a problem.
Anyway enough of my ramblings on with the pics.....
So after stripping the car (early stage pic, later the car had no interior not even the dash)...
I was left with Vauxhalls pathetic attempt to sound deaded.
3 layers of dynamat extreme and the gap between outer and inner layer stuffed with sound absorbing foam. The job was a good one. The speaker was trial fitted. Notice the tweeter is floating on a bracket above the driver and yes I have used components but then again with the Eq I am usung I can customise each speaker individually.
Next up time for the roof. Dynamat first (notice I did not cover the entire area but did just as much as was required). Besides another layer was due to go on.
The roof cover in the sound absorbing mat. I used Second Skin Overkill. I could have used overkill pro but as I did not have enough the overkill pro was going on the floor area.
Lastly, the only thing I really disliked a lot about the VXR was the dark and gloomy cabin. Easy enough to change so hey presto after some neat barging I managed to aquire a new headlinging, side trim panels and all the other bits and peices I needed, with the car a a bargin basement price. So all inserted and the interior now looks lovely and airy. No more gloom and doom in there. Oh and why did I leave some black bits well after experimenting a bit I liked the contrast so I left the black peices in place
Enjoy, this will be my last update for a while till I sort out the circumstance that has cropped up. Not sure how long that will be but hopefully not to long .
