    Default This weekend i have been mostly..........

    cleaning the wifes new car and giving it her first coat of polish.
    fitting a roof mounted tv screen with external dvd player and IR headphones.

    To say i have had a fun weekend messing around with cars would be an understatement.

    Saturday i got to work with fitting the following

    Kenwood LZH-70WTR roof mount screen,
    Kenwood KDV-S220P DVD player and 2 pairs
    Kenwood KHP-IR70 headphones

    I have enclosed a couple of pictures of the finished product. all works really well, all found at a bargain price on the web at £299.99

    all went really well except for having modify the connections from the original roof mount light as this is a ribbon cable, but got there in the end with the trusty soldering iron and hard wired the wires into the original plug.

    Ir sensore for the DVD player is on the B pillar & the IR sensors for the headphones is either side at the top of the C pillars. Sound quality is superb, Picture Quality is ok. just what you would expect from a 7" lcd.

    But all in all, i am really pleased with how it turned out.

    I wired the additional aux ports in as well and they are just pocking out at the bottom of the back seat for attaching things like the kids playstation if they want it.

    So one job done and on to the next.

    Sunday, another glorious day so it was time to wash the cars and give the wifes new one it's first coat of wax. Have to admit though, i am somewhat regretting buying a black car, but hopefully once i have been to the C&S open day i will have some better polish that will make it much easier to clean.

    Anyway, here it is, 2006 registered Vauxhall Meriva Design 1.7cdti. registered to the dealership in october and purchased by myself in Feb 2007. got a great deal from the dealers as well.
    Spec is the Design model, Black Sapphire, alloys, twin sunroofs, Stereo controls in the rear with headphones. all the usual design features.
    paid £10,495 it had 30 miles on the clock when we picked it up.

    Wife is over the moon with it. i have to admit i much prefer driving this to her previous car of her Chrysler Pt Cruiser 2.2 CRD Limited. managed to sell this quite easily and what with the deal from the dealership it all balanced out quite well with me only having to put an extra £350 to seal the deal and pay for it.

    i've attached some photos here as well. just need to get the front widows tinted so it looks a lot more gradual.

    If any of you guys have some tips on the best polish to use ona black car it would be most appreciated.
