The '88 Accord! Now in hibernation.

Recommended Posts

Was only a few miles from them so it very nearly was! Or at least in the compound!

 

Yeah, I suppose I should have expected it given the sump was already leaking and very corroded!

 

Chased up the place I ordered the new one from, hopefully have it no later than Wednesday!

She said she found a note under her wipers asking the exact same thing last week!

Yeah I'm hoping it's just that but I'm sure my brother will check to make sure, plus if it isn't any oil that goes in would just come straight back out anyway :lol:

 

Should have the sump today or tomorrow at the latest!

I got my boss to change it around so that I'm at City all week so I can walk to work! Not yet done anything about a bike which is another thing I want to start doing leisurely first!

Got home to find one of my goodies had arrived! Figured it couldn't hurt to crack on while I had time!

 

So some new, cheap but good speakers! Credit goes to Simpo for pointing me at these on eBay!

£15 - Bargain!

 

So this is what was already in the door!

No wonder the sound quality has been poor, they're tiny!

Definately not enough power :lol:

 

Look at the difference between the Sony's and the Fli's!

Once fitted, they looked and sounded much better! Job well done and only took half an hour as the Sony speakers weren't original so wires had already been cut and crimped!

They look brand new mate, littlerally a pair of speakers in a box and a bit of cable, but for the money they're pretty good!

Haha it's ace, slow as 4uck though but gets a lot of looks, possibly because of the courtesy car sticker, got some more stickers to go on when they arrive and the oil's been cleaned off her!

I know, I know! These (apart from the speakers) were ordered around the same time the sump went, playing the waiting game for too long on delivery. Latest they say is it'll be with me between 15:30 and 16:30 today! My younger brother is at home keeping an eye out for it!
