man that looks too sick. youve got some skills there mate - am i right in assuming you run your own business in doing this sort of stuff?

maybe you should consider moving over here to build custom sound installs for people - think of the moneeeys!!!

Indeed, that is real shame, hopefully you get chance to make your own business in other country some day, you have great skill.

Here is something that some may find interesting, you can compare how good different countries are for business.

Finland:

Croatia:

UK:
http://www.doingbusiness.org/ExploreEco ... nomyid=196

Sure UK looks a 'little' better than others and I'm probably soon going to start my own company here in Finland, too bad I did not born in UK, there is perhaps not so negative attitude for private business as it is in here, you are greed bastard here if you run your own company. Luckily it is changing, but still it is quite bad.

Her is the rest of the story.... I registered my car and i finally ride with my Volvo....... :D :D

As I was writing earlyer i had to buy new carpet, but that wented down the drain... So i painted it....
Image

I bought a new accu, and the cables are new8) I made a BIG THREE. 3x minus on car, one minus on motor, and a plus on alternator

Image

I had some problems with placeing the accu in, but i fixed it....

Image

I placed a cooler beneath the HU, so i can cool him down

Image

I placed all parts in

ImageImageImageImageImageImage
It's chili outside , but someone has to do it.... Here is a "battle field" :lol:
ImageImage

I put some plasma gauges in my Volvo...

Old ones before i take them appart
Image

Image

Image

Image
ImageImageImageImageImageImage

ImageImageImageImage

And here are final pictures :D


ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage ImageImageImageImageImage

What would you guys recommend about alternator. I have :

Front speakers are 90 w Rms, rear speakers are 75 w Rms, and 4 now the woofer has 500 Rms (later i'll put another one). The amps are: for speakers 4x75 w rms and 4 one woofer i have 1000 w rms @ 1ohm amp.

When i'm driving, capacitor (1 f) is showing 11, 6 v, and it should show 14,4. (I made big three cables, i have 75 qmm for+ and 50 qmm for ground, but i put 3x 50 qmm for ground). Now i know my alternator can't charge my accu (i bought maxxima 900 ac ) and i should put a stronger alternator in. What would you recommend 4 me to put in??

Cheers, Rodi

Well I have not looked at this thread for a long time and well I'm well impressed 8) :D

If I was running a propper car modding shop I would give you a job strait away.

You best bet is to either find a higher outpur alternator or fit a second one. I'm sure with all your skills you would be able to make the brackets etc to do the job.

Hello 2 all of you! I did'nt stop working on my car . Now it was time for exterior work. Here are some photos! These are photos from last year. the car is waithing for better temperature outside, so i can make my booth for painting.....

I am looking for body kit and here is what will maybe go on (with modifications of course)

ImageImage

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
ImageImageImage

After new stock sideskirts were puted on (yes, i find them in one shop over here and i payed for them 40 Euro) i thought that i may do something with my freaking hood! Here is the result!

ImageImageImageImageImage
ImageImageImageImage
ImageImage

And then some more photos:

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

And here you can see how my fu... idiot son of an ass.... (read: Car Body repearman) deals with his work (these was covered with putty)!! If you wanna do it best, do it yourself! D.I.Y. Rules
ImageImage

Everything was stripped:
Image

As you can see everything is nicely rusted 8) ! I welded support....
ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

ImageImageImageImage

The doors were in preety fu.. up state:

ImageImage

And it was time for filler:

ImageImageImageImageImage
ImageImageImageImage

And this is it for now! I'm waithing for better wheather, so i can continue!

Oi to the world!
