    Looks good.. Will be getting a new fascia sent off to the same guy as soon as I get paid!

    Where abouts did you mount the microphone for voice control? I had a thought about putting it inside one of the heater vents but was unsure how moving air would affect it.

    well finally got it back on the road after a month, engine and gearbox have been out 3 times... but it seems to work alright now! I have spent the last 2 days from 8am to 1am rewiring it, running a loom in tubing etc to neaten it up, also moved the comp to the boot, wired in the lights and buttons up front got the usb hub working (5v) got the xenarc running from the opus, and generally buggering about with it!!

    So for now I will be keeping it, will be working over the summer again on the farm though so will have more money to look for something bigger! My car is worth next to nothing now so need some extra cash! Can't wait to get my hands on another car to start over again though!

    Hopefully everything sould be ready and looking ok for the meet
