    My latest mod - WORK IN PROGRESS

    Well, seeing as everyone appears to be doing either a “What's in the box?” or “My latest mod” thread, it seems its now my turn! Thank god its the latter as the box ones are becoming a bit tedious.

    So without further ado heres a few pics...... Before anyone says anything...ITS NOT YET FINISHED - still need to upholster the unit and smoothe/tidy it up - at least its working though and function over style for the timebeing!

    Its a mp3 jukebox as Im sure you already know (a few ppl on here have em already) Ffoeg being the front runner.

    Any thoughts and opinions welcome....

    PS: Following on from my 3 Series C-pillar lights in my footwells, Ive continued the theme of using other manufacturers lighting as my interior lights!







    Yes, the flaws are more evident on the last pic but as I said - its not yet finished. Just a little taster of whats to come.

    very nifty indeed. will look wicked when its tidied up and looks more integrated. Its mods like that which will actually add to the resale value too. good work.

    yeah its far from finished and it was kind of a rushed job (as most of u can tell) but hey I was missing my thousands of tunes!

    I agree, it should look a lot better if I ever get round to smoothing it in - knowing me it'll take about a year judging by last years mod to the centre console that still aint been finished off.

    Nice idea

    if you take the back off the remote you could sit that back a bit further if needed - it's only about 15mm thick then

    I thought about that but just wanted it up and running....its a total git to mount as it is but I'll defo reconsider that when I get round to finishing it off.

    EDIT: Actually, just thinking about it - I could scrap a lot of the internals of the roof panel itself and attempt to smooth the whole thing over - pushing the remote back quite a bit and having it look quite factory.....just gotta brush up on the old fibre glass & filler skills
