Well, too coat done and now have to wait till 9tonight to refit them! I’ll leave it till tomorrow I think.

Image

They are a bit more gold coloured than I wanted, but for £40 and a bit of faffing, I’m really impressed!

Image

Next time, I’d really flat the wheels back... you can still see some lumps where the lacquer has bubbled, and although I flatted it roughly as this was an experiment, I’m still very happy with how they’ve turned out!

I know!
They have a couple of marks, but it was more of an experiment than anything else.....i can't stress how good it goes on and looks. We'll have to wait to see how it lasts, but the quality and finish is spot on. ;)

So... I was struggling to fit my active underwear sub.... apparently, it’s easy. If you are not a complete idiot like me!
I couldn’t work out where the blue and white ‘P. CON’ wire went.... my Chinese head unit didn’t have one.
So, I was going to splice into a switched fuse, as the internet said, and opened the fuse box and a blue wire fell out with some green insulation tape ....

Guess what it was?

What are the chances??😂

It works now!👍

Nice one mate. They’re quite punchy for a small box aren’t they?
I very rarely have mine on full, unless I’m listening to something like The Doors, or other old stuff where the recordings were much quieter.
