Well in my rush to get things all sorted for PV, I have now finished my instal build. But there are quite a few things I am not happy with and one major issue!
1) the triming on the tray is aweful mainly cause me and carpet do not get on very well, so it will be redone at some point
2) The Perspex windows i could not get some thick perspex in time so I have made temporary covers, which look aweful TBH but I care not at this stage!
3) My ground cable was to short so I have temporarily hooked it up and you guessed it it hisses like mad, much like I expected.
4) The Hinges are not strong enough for the gas strut and hey presto first test and they are ripped apart. Great time for some more!
And now the kicker
I finished all the wiring, connected up the battery. And yes everything powered up and everything powers up i.e. Headunit, bluetooth phone kit, navi, amp ....... but hang on where is the sound?
Well a lot of head scrathing and eliminating things one at a time and it turns out no signal is getting to the amp. Why I heard you ask? Well the F***ing processor is either not powering up or no signal is getting to it. Possibilites well 1) the optical cable is knackered! 2) The processor is not powering up for reasons unknown at present 3) I did not set the headunit switch to EQ at the base of the unit (I am sure I did! but you never know I would not put it past me)
So then at this point after lots of cursing I quit for the day and came home. My money is on the optical cable being knackered as there is no tell tail light coming thorough it althought it could be the switch!
Bloody typical at this rate the thing is never going to be setup so at present my VXR is not coming to PV unless I can get it sorted!
As for the pictures well they will have to wait till I have it all sorted.
There is a moral to all this take your time and do it right first time and do not rush to finish, no matter how much experience you have at these things, Sods law always takes over!
