So First of all, i apologize to the people i upset with random bursts of anger, and also im going to stop posting random crap and stupid ideas. Ive spoke to One of the sites moderators sam_homepc and im starting my project thread again, From now on im only posting things i have done and not the things im going to do.

I would appreciate it if people took this thread seriously and respect the fact that i have changed my ways.
Moving on

This is my arden blue corsa b 1.2 Sxi I purchased it of a friend for £500
It has Alot of Awesome extras.




These Extras include the following
Irmscher splitter


Irmscher Skirts


Color coded door handles, boot lock surround, debumb stripped,full exterior color coding. The car has also been lowered 60mm

And thats how it was stock, so some personalization was entirely necessary
Got some Ngk Spark plugs



scanned my old clocks and made these in photoshop


And now my Simple Boot build + ice system
(currentally) consisting of

2 x kenwood Parcel shelf speakers
1 x 3m 19" touch screen monitor

This is my box for the Touch screen


inside the car with the monitor inside


Today my carpet and spray glue arrived So i re carpeted my boot floor and did the touch screen surround in carpet.

Some little touches inside the boot were, (Standard boot light override switch) and a switch for a pair of blue leds i added.

this is what i got








Nighttime shot


Bright!

The sides of the boot are all scrated and knacked so im upholstering them in black carpet, (thats on order)

thanks updates shortly.

Edit, Lights look alot better in the dark :)

Little Suggestion, instead of them small blue lights why not some small strip neons, down each side of the boot build.

is it me or that picture of your parcel shelf, looks like its bowing

Wouldnt it look better if you cut into the plastic and placed them 2 switches into the actual plastic, would look more professional once its been done with carpet as well, that way you would have them nicely put in over the carpet. If that makes any sence

yeah im actually doing that once i get the carpeting
also the led's need replacing as down lighters because as you can see on the nighttime picture you cant see anything, they blind you.

thanks for the suggestions they shall go forward! :thumbs_up:

Tidy example, I agree with whoever said it needs speedlines that would really set it off, and a CC "v" Grill?

Out of curiosity waht function does the touch screen serve?
Has it got an output wired from the HU or is it free standing with something else?

Purely my opinions and meant constructively.
You have a mint base car, don't ruin it with all these useless chavtastic addons you're doing. **** off all the electronics and get the outside done perfect.

Go for new wheels, a nice set of coilovers, new front and back lights, then start tinkering with the inside. A word of advice from someone who has been there and got the t-shirt, then donated it to charity......you will look back in a few years and wonder what on Earth you were thinking of bolting all this **** into your car.

I used to have subs/amp and the like and thought it was ace, then got rid of everything and spent 2 years listening to the sound of the car for my music. Even now I prefer not to have the radio in the and just have the window down.

In summary, think long and hard about what you are putting into your car, as you can easily end up making it ****.

Nice little motor you got going there. Not to my taste with the touch screen but then again if all of us had the same looking cars it would be a rather boring website.
Hope it goes well for ya

i want to be unique might just have it wired up to a laptop that stores all my music and stuff (saves having a million Cds around) when ever i want more music ill download some when im parked at home (wireless)

Anybody know if a headunit can access a computer to share music files? either via bluetooth or hardwired. cheers
