    97 impreza. finally got install started

    finally got round to starting my impreza install. 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 but with my back going i was lucky to get the
    interior back in.

    do you have all the speakers?

    wouldnt it be easier to go straight for the alpine speakers now(save the double spending)
    Carpc plan=========90% -Never going to be finished!
    Carpc parts==5% -Computer died
    Carpc install==5% -Need to install computer
    Carpc worklog-0% -Need to start that soon

    i already have the ripspeed speakers. the alpines and the ripspeed ones the reason i'm not using the alpine compnents yet is they dont fit. so door builds will be made to accomodate them but i want the boot finishing first.

    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.

    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

    well spent a lot of time over the last week working on the sub box not that it looks like a lot of work has gone into it but it has.

    here is the area taped off and foil being applied


    first few layers of fiber glass and mdf base and end panel


    the mould removed. it was tight to get out


    A few more layers of fiber glass a top and the other end panel. cut out in the top panel for the boot hindge




    the cut out for the boot hindge has now been boxed in. i foun to tiny leaks when i was checking the box volume so it needs a little bit of sealing but it's just about done.








    a few pictures of the sub box. hole will be cut when i get the sub





    the start of a homemade slide actuator to operate the boot floor
