[QUOTE=TJEToates;2867157]and sorry i want 16's with mad stretch lolQUOTE]

Looking at another thread about winter tyres it would seem you can't put 16"s on a TJet because they wont clear the calipers. Maybe worth having a look into it.

Looking excellent so far mate, love the white ones

Re: My TJ Build..Tjetoates

I'd be happy paying 2900 for insurance! I'm 17 and it's costing me 3500 to insure my 1.2 and thats only third party!. You think when I turn 18 even with no ncb it will go down a little?

Re: My TJ Build..Tjetoates

the new update!.. they will still be a few more to come but dont want to show everything straight away! lol plus takes forever!! so enjoy and any comments are welcome!

next up just after lowering was footwell lights!.. my dad has a big posh audi s6 with all the bits and nice lights everywhere, so i copied! lol..


they are white btw lol

next up was my budget induction kit.. it was a 10 filter from eBay and i made sure it was a double coned one so no bits got into my turbo!!.. i realized how less restrictive it would become once it was fitted..it was done within 5 mins!! and makes the best sound ever!!..when in the wrong gear and planting your foot it sounds like a airplane plopellor! really good and so loud honestly lol
anyway a picture!


next was more lows!!.. after about 2 days of fitting the coilovers i wound them down another 4cms at the front and 2cms at the back..still wasn't low enough but okay for then..


next was the begging of fitting my sub woofer.. actually beggining of the wiring madness! first trying to get a good strong signal for the audio.. i wanted the same HU as i dont like aftermarket units..sorry to anyone!! don't mean it badly, just enjoy blue and me and the steering controls so finding a signal for a rca converter!

i couldn't get a clear signal, well i was picky lol.. so i revised into it and found a subwoofer loom in the boot! :@ so spliced all the wires and attached the cables there, there's a ground cable and all the speaker cables and a continuous 12v as well all there! .. i wanted to make a build and have a small 8" sub that i could hide away to the side of the boot but the amp blew three times!!.. drove to halfords all annoyed and bought a vibe( i think) sub with built in amp and fitted it in sounds awesome lol..

alot of mess in there, alot of wires being cut! lol

next day my smoked repeaters arrived from bidding 14 on ebay for them
as someone said earlier, i have got them :P lol


ill update again tomorrow as there's more to come!!! hope you like for far and any comments are welcome!! stay in touch as it will be updated again tomorrow!

I'm a copper. So the answer is he SHOULD get pulled as it's not the standard british font used. Therefore our ANPR systems have trouble reading the plate because of it being raised and what not.

If he does get pulled over he should be given a notice period to have them changed and to prove it.

Shame however, I rather like them plates!

I know what you mean! Surely with todays materials and tech you think they could make a similar plate which the machine could recognise! It picks up the black areas out the reflective backing right?

Looking at his plate. Doing a standard and non standard.... I don't actually see why the ANPR wouldn't catch it to be honest. Although it's raised, the font is very nearly the same. I'd only be a bit iffy with how reflective it is.

However, it's hard to guess... Computers have minds of their own.

On another note - Has anyone else got one of them Air filters? I'm really tempted to get one, I understand you need to cut and mould the pipe as it's not a circle it's an oval shape (Why do Italians have to be awkward?!)
