The passenger side enclosure needs a big phat amp in it with geometric wire paths and a soft red back light. That would be sick!

I like it.......I would have considered a 12v fridge in the centre


As you mentioned it, I thought best to check the one I have fits, and it does. Perfectly, which is a happy coincidence, rather than good planning :-)

Amps are too big, so going under the seats.

There are two Alpine's Ive had in the shed from years ago. One is a 500w class D mono for the sub and the other is a 340w 4 channel for the small speakers (of which I have 2 sets of components to replace the pants standard ones). I do have another 500w mono and sub, but no space for it. Lights in the storage alcoves are a possibility though ;-)

The joinery isnt difficult if its going to be covered in carpet (hides a lot of sins), but thankyou for the kind words.

Now brace yourself for some crap upholstery...



and the next project is...



Stainless exhaust B)
This will use the 2" 4-2-1 manifold I already have and expand to 2.5" through a sports cat and single back box. Looks complicated when its in bits like that though! Had a quick play with the stainless mig wire and argon gas on a bit of it and its actually pretty easy to weld thankfully.

No puking allowed :sick: If anyone near me is sick, it instantly makes me ill :-(

I used to have this all the alpine stuff in the back of a fiat bravo in my boy racer days and it would make the roof bulge when turned up, so theres gonna be enough power in a tiny cab like mine with just the one sub :-)

Wowsers! Just as we thought we were all Wowed out from the build of this truck, you go and Wow us again with the sub and fridge install!

I think you're fuel usage probably is right for a Jimny running a 1.8 on those sized tyres through that gearing and with that weight! Albeit you've effectively chopped half of the body off!

You've got a load area I the back that could carry fuel and a funnel though.

On the matter of the fuel consumption, if it makes you feel any better I had to take the grand vitara into Bradford city centre last week and being ultra gentle with the accelerator I made the dizzy heights of 23.6 mpg.

Crimbo laning trip with Dave & Alan and Brett in Wales.

Started at Barmouth and headed to Corwen the scenic way. As Barmouth is a long 4.5hr drive for me and Joel we went down the night before and stayed in a b&b.
