Glad to see you're fighting the good fight and trying to turn back time. It will be a sight to see (and hear!) when finished. In car audio is always an uphill struggle - everything mitigates against good sound quality, but I'm sure yours will sound crisp and clean. Most audio uses cheap bell wire for interconnects, so you've certainly got that covered. And all the noise damping you've put in the car will pay dividends there.

Know what you mean about powerful speakers and their propensity to attach themselves immovably to any steel in the vicinity...

My latest annoyance is the sill trim rubbers (brand new from Italy) have a different profile shape that does not match the end caps like the original. Of course my originals have shrunk and gained overspray and deep scuffs.
      

Eric, I've been off the forum for a bit so late to this but on the side rubbers if you happen to have three they will cut and glue with an almost invisible join using most 'superglue' type adhesives. I was skeptical about gluing rubber under I worked for an industrial gas metering company  - all their O rings are cut and glued to size and working happily in high pressure gas terminals!

Hi Stuart

Thank you for the idea. Currently I can only find the rough 2 but definitely used to have more. Of course I might have given them away or binned them so the new ones in the wrong profile are staying for now.

So my slow painful progress includes an alarm switch and bracket for the boot which was surprisingly tricky. Also the front bumper complete with fog lights is fitted and I have fully labelled my extra fuse boxes before I fit them and start running extra wires around the car.
This saves epic confusion later I hope.

I have been distracted by working out what I need and getting it to fit Electric Air Conditioning to my Montecarlo with credit due to Darren Cooksey for pioneering this one. I now know more about the difference in old to new AC systems than I really wanted to.
