this is a quote of Brad rom MEA forum, he has gone to bed so i will post it for him..
"here's the amp rack cut out changes i made daz.. before and after pics.. think it looks better??

today i finished the amp rack cut outs, and glassed the joins together where it goes around the corners... they had some funky looking cut outs which the last installer started.. i never liked the idea, and the amount of time it was taking to get the result was ridiculous so i cut them out as you see in the pics, and imo, it looks better, its easier to make meat and even gaps around the edges, so its a win win... it also allows me to illuminate behind them and get some glow happening around the edges..

i sanded the rear doors after adding some more glass yesterday..... i glassed up the panel i made behind the seat.. did some work on the trim that butts upto the a-pillars/roof and goes thru to the rear of the van.. that was it for today.. cos, i spent about 2 hours on the net though, car searching... im in the process of getting a new car... the interior will be full leather re-trim done by auto image as part of the payment for my work on the van..

the pics may look the same atm.. but theres been changes to the amp rack as mentioned and daz wanted to see ..

thanks for looking.. cant wait till its done....

before

after

I think its great with the new panels they will display the Amps & the lighting will be so much more effective, well done thanks Brad.

So what do all you other members think of this change? your input is welcome

nah wizard, no perspex covers or anything like that... above the amps there is about 10mm of lip to run some LED strip lighting to illuminate the centre walk way and amps...

loading pics to photo bucket now and if i get time tonight ill post some pics to show you what i mean mate..

Brads update quoted:

hey guys.. not alot got done today unfortunately.. i had a doc's appointment at 1pm so i had to leave early..

i've made some changes to the previous installers design and would like to hear people oppinions if possible...

thanks for the suggestions too, that sounds good...
damo, thanks for your comment, it means a fair bit coming from you as i know youve done your fair share of installs and know whats involved.. basically i will be installing full time hopefully when the vans finished... Sam said his happy to keep me on as a contracting fabricator, so i will qoute jobs when he needs them done, and from what im told it will be an on going thing, almost 5 days a week, etc..


i've made a pelmet (spelling??) box type peice across the top of the van for the lighting... this is because the passengers side had the sliding door and the trim panel going from front to back on that side bulged out and to keep the look symetrical from the rear of the van i replicated this look on the drivers side above the bar... this was to fit a neon light to illuminate the bar.. after doing so, i had the thought of continuing that all the way along instead of having the lighting higher in that area thats bare atm in the pics where daz had the neon kit previously... i have an idea for that area and think that how ive done the lighting now will look just as good, if not better (imo)...

the neons wont be seen, only the glow from them will be, illuminating the walls,seats and stuff...

ive also started the bulk head around the roof to seperate the cabin from the back and it can be seen in the pics... it will be cut out in a arch shape and go up to the roof height in the back and cab, as they are diffrent heights.. (bout 2 inches diff)

public holiday monday, so more updates on tuesday night..

thanks for looking,

Brad....







btw, you may notice the cuts not straight on that peice im making.. it wont matter as im buzzing it straight later with a router and guide so its perfectly straight.. wish they had a table saw there, it would make life easier,lol..
