Drove it down to Three Legged Cross today, makes a wonderful sound from the engine and exhaust.

Started looking at the audio, it has had speakers installed though one of the speakers was missing and the other door speaker was holed. Bought a new pair of Pioneers for the front, has a pair of larger ones already in the back. Started going though the head unit and the other bits that were connected to it, none of it worked as the power lines were dead. There were adapters for a CD changer in there and other redundant stuff, pulled the lot out. Was going to install a retro style head unit but it was DOA so stole the Kenwood out of my caravan instead.

I got lucky, the speaker wiring all worked. The wires to the doors were all green but were connected to the colour coded wires of the old unit. Cut the wires from the old unit so I could match like to like and bang it worked! The rear speakers fired up too :)

So, now it sounds pretty good audio wise too. Anyone else going to Brooklands British Marques Day next weekend?
