    new member starting first proper install

    hi everyone. I finally got to start an install in my car. Its nothing exciting but i thought i'd share it with you.

    my impreza install. today consisted of running power wires and rca cables throught the car.

    I started taking some pictures as i went but during the process i manged to hurt my back quite badly and as the car was stripped down at work i had to rebuild the car in absolute agony so the picture taking went to the wayside a bit.

    Anyway here is what i did take.

    the start of the strip. front seats out


    rear seats out


    carpets gone



    inteercooler removed to route power wire


    fuse holder mounted on battery clamp


    all wire routed carpets back in


    I was hoping to get the amp and sub in today but with my back going i was lucky to get the interior back in. Ill see how i feel later today and hopefully get it finished off

    I got a bit more done on the boot yesterday.

    the boot floor pieces together



    hindged flap for access to spare wheel



    Due to the boot floor been so uneven i have decided to put a wooden frame under it which i will shape to the floor



    It's made up of 4 parts the 2 sides a centre peice and the flap, i put a slot in the side of the centre peice and the side peices and inserted some plastic guides in the side peices







    this so the sides can be put in place then the centre slides in between them locking every thing together.

    Hopefully get a start on the frame tomorrow

    Finally got the frame in and the new floor fitted and secured.

    the bare boot.




    the frame in place




    the frame mounted on the bottom of the floor



    my plan from the start was not screw or permanently fasten any of this build to the car it's self. the idea been the whole thing can be removed without any trace of it being there.

    so i taped the outline of the frame onto the floor then applied a bead of sealer to the bottom of the frame to help it sit nice and flush on the very uneven floor. the sealer sits on the tape and not the boot floor.




    and finally the whole lot fitted



    there is plenty of access to the spare wheel




    next step mocking up the sub box and amp rack
