    thanks guys and the steering wheel is on the right side (literally) i live in aus

    ok so todays entry:
    my ute remained stock for about 2 years untill i hat a job which paid reasonably and something in my head clicked i had always made plans to do up my car but never did anything about it so now was defenently the time to do it the first thing on my list was a set of rims looked around for a couple of weeks and finaly found a set that took my fancey they were speedy envys 19"by 8.5" and i loved them....
    but this brought up another problem.... the ride height i knew it sat a fair way off the ground but seriously with the 19s it was rediculous so the very next day it was off to the suspention shop to get it lowered i got king springs super lows and new shocks and because of irs (independant rear suspention) a camber kit for the rear and now it was looking the part.....

    then soon after folowed the begining of my sound system (witch in heinsite i wish i never started coz now im addicted) i started with a hu and a set of splits the hu was an eclipse cd7000 and its still the one i use i like it and the splits were eclipse eclipse sc8264s i liked em until i got realy involved in measq (mobile electronics aus sound quality comps)

    any ways sick of writing for today ill do more later on
    here is some more pics!!!

    That's fine but the steering wheel is still on the wrong side. Oh and you guys drive on the wrong side of the road too. :p;)

    Default the sterio

    ok so we are up to me having my head unit and splits in then came the subs and amp: i started with 2 eclipse sw7000 subs rated at 450wrms and a da6213 digital power amplifier rated at 1000wrms this went pretty good and then came my amp for my splits an eclipse ea2000 very nice amp i might add.

    a few months passed and the owner of the store i bought said come down this weekend and check out the measq comps i did and ended up competing and i came 9th not having a clue on what it was all about i got feedback from the judges and found that its all about stageing imaging tonality...etc etc and also was told i had some resonance in my doors and lacking midbase so i bought myself some dynamat i started with 2 door kits and did my doors liked what it did so then decided to do my floor rear firewall and my roof witch took 2 bulk packs of the stuff but i believe it helps alot.

    ok by now i had popped my subs i split the cones away from the rubber so i got myself 2 treo ssi10's rated at 750wrms and another eclipse da6213 amp this went loud but was nice at the same time i also learned how to tune a bit and that was good coz at the next sq comp i came equal first i was stoked!!!

    got my seats custom upholstered made some tweeter pods and had my roof lining upholstered and my door trims done aswell new steering wheel gear nob hand brake all still holden but leather and satin chrome any ways here is some pics

    anyways pics in order:\
    1:interior
    2:dynamat firewall
    3:dynamat floor
    4:dynamat door
    5: old seats
    6:tweeter pods
    7:roof lining re trimmed
    8: rear firewall amps
    9:new seats

    enjoy

    ok so i popped the treos aswell so i began to look for new subs and came across the polk sr104 and i liked it so i bought it then i got myself some sr6500 splits aswell and they sound fantastic not lacking in mid bass like the eclipse were and have now redone my rear firewall well mostly still gotta do the beauty pannel mainly to accomidate the polk crossovers coz they wouldnt fit in my kicks coz they r so big and im halfway through re doing my tweeter pods make them not stand out as much as the red did....
