10" sub speaker foam

Posted 13-01-2008 at 23:34 by docorangepeel (docorangepeel's Barchetta Blog)

This weekend the sun came out so I got my first chance to remove the petrol tank panel and fit the speaker foam behind the 10" sub. 3 hours work but it made the sub sound a lot more deep and thick then before.

Winter sucks

Nothing new to report as the B does not do winters. She will be going back in for a stainless engine cover at some point but we are saving for our holiday at the mo.

My Barchetta comes back from the mod shop.

The one off air intake system is now fitted along with a new stainless header and power steering tank. Looks great if I do say so myself. Pics can be found in the Barchetta section in my Doc Orange Peel thread.
Today I replaced the drivers airbag and tomorrow the sub gets some sound padding and a port.

update 13-10-2007

Calipers are now finished and I have made some orange indicator bulbs that fit behind the clear covers. Orange glass paint works great

Going to pick up a brand new replacment drivers side rear wind today for 100 At some point I will need to have the wing replaced as I have a bit of rust along the wing wheel arch and the side join so as this came up I will grab it and put it in the loft.
