    Well time to start another build log since most people enjoy seeing them...This one is called Project Blue Bug...It will be a build in my Blue Vw Beetle Turbo Diesel ...My first phase of the project is to replace the worn and torn factory door speakers....

    Re: Project Blue Bug

    The factory speakers are held in by 4 rivets...so I had to drill them out...Then I custom modified a Honda Accord aftermarket speaker bracket to fit the stock location then adding some deadning on the inner door wall....

    I choose a Blaupunkt componet set because I'm going with a Blaupunkt Hamburg MP57 with Bluetooth and mini USB to replace the factory deck....

    Im guessing you might post pics of the radio, maybe a few interior shots, and then the thread will stop.

    Re: Project Blue Bug

    I played with running some wiring in it today....and tried several amps...but none fit where I want or produced the needed power....Though its not gonna be a big system it should be fairly nice....I also had to fix a faulty fog light on it today ....I didn't take any pics of todays work on it....

    So Im guessing its going to be "old school" and be "just a little something for a daily system like a single DD 1508"?
