    I love the install in a classic car. I hope you don't live in Paris because your stuff will get ganked pretty quickly, or you would have more dents in your car :-D there is about 2.5cm's in one Inch so your sub is a 10. Maybe you could mold DVD player into the roof some how. Jai regarder ici a mp3car.com you would have to make some kind of enclosure for it from fiberglass, not sure how this would look in a bug tho. Good luck for the future and excuse my bad french :-P

    What kind of alternator do you have? Theres no way you have the old generator still on that

    I was looking at a 72 VW Squareback for a small project and the best alternaor I could find that would bolt in without too much modification was 60A. You have alot more room in the engine bay though.

    Since English obviously isn't your first language, it just wouldn't be funny to you.
    I was just having a laugh as obviously what you were trying to say didn't translate well. It was just funny. Not an insult.
