...well I must admit, that's surprised me a bit as I'm a tad conservative with my car colours usually so the thought of "neon green" kinda made me go that colour myself :grin: but that don't look too bad at all sat behind there, good going Mih' :ok:

ohh guys i had the car parked... lowered it back... went up in my flat... got in the car... started running... and a damn sound...

at every turn there was something like a piece of metal caught in the wheel hitting the car... i was like what the heck...

Well my wheels are balanced, and i have a tiny piece of something on the inside rim... and that little thing...
Well somehow i bent this little thingy...
DSCF1647.JPG


and that little piece of metal from the rim was hitting this... dad thought first that that sound came from the bearing... but damn... look at this... a little tiny piece of nothing...

g-whizz, regarding the color... everybody said it's plain stupid and ugly and shit... now when i showed it... everybody wants it :)) too bad i keep my secret for myself :D

I think with the vinyls you need to stick with a theme and go from there, perhaps get a drawing first. Graphics companies here can usually show you what it might look like before print and application.

And yesterday, my UBEC arrived.
I got a dashcam with a damn 5V IN and the regulator is inside the plug... worst idea ever.
I wanted a blackboxed unit so on I went... cut the power wire, only to find out the regulator is in the plug.

Order list:
- UBEC 5V/3A switching regulator.

Well the switching regulator consumes 0.38A and for a 14.8V power, that is roughly 5.6W so 5/5.6 = 89.3% efficiency. 0.6W is dissipated, so almost no heat.
I wanted a simple linear regulator, but for 14.8V it need 1A, so 14.8*1 = 14.8W. For 5V it means 5*1=5W so 5/14.8 = 33.8% eficiency. 14.8-5 = 9.8W... now that is a lot of heat...

So:
11222942_777092322434656_5709852878114366243_n.jpg


Left harness, the 4 speakers, and the rear speaker cables are doubles as those goes to the subwoofer.
Right harness, earth, 12V constant, 12V ignition and REM.
REM goes to my woofer as signal for switching.
I wired in parallel the regulator with the ignition 12V, and the earth. Now when i put on the ignition the camera goes on.
Stop the ignition, camera goes off.

No, it doesn't have parking mode so this was best way to go. Also no wires on the dash etc, as it goes all hidden :)

Ohhh the FORD to ISO adapter. I don't know where it is from, but you HAVE TO SWITCH red and yellow cables. Otherwise your player will loose memory :)

Those look quite smart Steve, I've thought about these for a few years but never actually got any. Are they any good, do they actually work on the motorway or faster roads to have your window down a bit?

How did you find them to fit? I almost bought a set earlier this year but was put off by reading that they were a pig to put on.

I bought a set and you have to use silicon to seal them in as there isn't an actual groove for the window to go into. So I just sold them instead.
