Modifying...

Winters coming, atleast here in Finland we're pretty much snowed in the whole winter which means that it's soon time to hit the garage and start planning, tuning and modifying our Fiat's for next summer :)

My question is about the mounting plate...
As can be expected the standard radio is gone and a Blaupunkt San Francisco put it but it just looks so stupid as it is now.
How have you guys done it...
I'm thinking about molding something from fiber glass to get back the round shape of the original tape unit but I'm out of ideas...
Anything ?

Save your cash and buy a 4X4 Panda. It'll love the snow. :)

No afraid i don't.
Belongs to a guy called Brendon and he enters the UK sound-off competitions with a company called Team Source.
It is mechanical, pops up by remote control!
As do the amps in the boot which slide apart to reveal a sub sunk into the spare wheel well.

Thanx 'Punto 1.6 sporting' :)

And guess what..now when I ponder this these coming 5 months of winter I'll be forced to spend an arm & leg on getting it done from leather [xx(]

Thank godness it's warmer now (+3C) and the snow is gone..
My Brava still looks like an 'dwarf' now that it's stripped down..



Well..only 6 months to go... |)
