    What I can say is, Gina is performing well and I'm loving driving the car as it is. I'm still wanting to get a remap done to get the most out of the engine, but I've not had time to go see anyone yet.
    I'm trying my best to keep Gina clean and looking her best , but the weather is always undoing my efforts. Lol

    The only thing I'm looking to do this weekend, is to fit my subwoofer and amp in the boot, I'm missing the bass. The oem stereo and speakers are really good, but they don't give that low end bass I like. Again, this will get done if the weather is good.
    I'm not sure if to put pics up of fitting the sub and amp, I might do, I'll decide as I'm doing it.
    Hey keep plodding on with it trying to keep forum al9ve. Th8nk would be good to see some pics of the job may be handy for.sp.eone. glad she's running well and.i..with you regarding the weather. I need to get one last.clean in b4 really bad weather hits.

    I have noticed a drop in comments/questions etc etc on the forum.
    If I do fit my sub and amp into Gina at the weekend, Iíll post some pictures up. It is a modification to the car I suppose.

    So to wire an amp and subwoofer to the oem radio, I needed to find my rca converter. I hunted high and low for it and then realised Iíd left it connected to the corsa before I sold it.
    So because of that I decided to wait until Iíd got everything I need to wire everything into the car.

    Also decided to wait until I had afew days off which is this week, to give myself plenty of time for the install.

    So Iíve been outside today to get all the wiring done in readiness for my amp, (which Iím still waiting to be powdercoated.)

    The wiring is all fitted to the car but I canít test it until I get the amp back. Once itís all done Iíll post some pictures up that Iíve been taking.

    So as usual, nothing goes as planned.
    The amp and subwoofer are in the car and working.
    Itís so nice having some low end bass again.
    Anyway, my plan was to screw the amp to the back of the rear seat. The problem Iíve got is that the screws Iím using arenít going into the seat back. Iím going to have to drill some pilot holes before the amp can be mounted. So Iím going to get some drill bits tomorrow when Iím in town anyway and finish the job. For now I thought Iíd post afew pics of what Iíve done to get this all fitted.

    So at the mo, the amp is sat on the boot floor waiting for me to finish the fittingClick here to enlarge

    Also Iíve ordered some numbers and letters stickers, so I can put writing back on the amp.

    So I decided not to drill pilot holes to mount the amplifier on the rear seat back, instead Iíve bought some large Velcro sticky pads which I stuck to the bottom of the amp. The power of Velcro is amazing, the amp doesnít budge one bit.

    Also today I cancelled my eBay order for number and letters stickers and bought some from a local arts and crafts shop.

    I wanted to recreate what was written on the amp before I had it powercoated, see pics below.
