The A-Pillars are finally covered in Alcantara.
that was not so easy...
Where the hole is for the speakers, he had some alcantara to much. So pulled everything out of he sleave to make it nice and smooth.
A good thing he had big sleaves on his jumper that day





That little shitty thing wasn't easy to cover..



the rest of the interior will be another 3m of alcantara...

A-Pillars are in the car...

This setup of speakers is not everyone's cups of tea, we know. But he likes it, ...
Next week, they'll be sprayed in silver!






He was planning to make these things himself in CF, but for the price you can buy it, he bought it!

regarding the focal x-overs: couldn't they find a better way to put those crossovers together other than zip ties?

The balls are painted, and look just about perfect.
That's what he had in mind, and he made it for 100%.
Colour matches the trim perfectly




about the little ditch in the big ball, he's satisfied. Not so easy to make, and rubb it there.






This is what you see on the outside.
.

Again something that's finished. When he thinks about it know, it has worth the effort again....
up to the next!

I advised him to not use the covers...cause it's more beautiful that way.

Yet, the doorpanels.
Why? cause this is something he can do inside the house, cause in Belgium, it's very cold already this time a year...IT ain't gonna be simple, but hey, let's try !

The doorpanels he's using are secondhanded. So the car remains complete, and he doesn't have to drive without panels all winter.

These are the doorpanels he made 10 years ago for his BMW E30. What he remembered is that it took a LOT of work.But it's payed off and looked nice.




The things he's going to make now, can't be compared with then. Here you see he demounted some stuff.


Started taking off the leather. awefull job

The 16cm FOCAL speaker is taking approximately the same place where the original speak is.


In the meanwhile , het let the rings mild nicely,


What he likes to do now, is to make the speakers turn the speakers.
This would be the normal stand.


And that's how the thing should come ones the door is closed.


These are the engines who will make this thing work.


So...There's going to be a switch inside the car, that when he gets pushed, the speakers change there angel. They come more turned towards the passengers.

It all sounds and looks cool, but he doesn't know for sure if he can make this work, if he has enought place to get the little engines, ...
will se what the future brings...

this has to be one of the best if not the best the thread of 2007. Every update just leave me in awe! Just when I think I have seen some of the sickest DIY work, I see something even more mind blowing! Those CF door trim on the E30 is probably the sickest I have ever seen!

any more pics of the E30? Pls pls plssss do post some!
