Looking good mate!

I noticed one thing though, i believe you run audio and power cables parallel next to each other? as far as i know you need to keep those seperate.. 

Hope this helps :)

Thanks bud, I would agree in a house situation when 240v is present, but with a car only being 12v I don’t think the distortion of my audio will be affected enough for me to tell but i will soon know if I’m talking out my rear end haha

It depends, if it's only speaker wire then no, nothing will happen, if it's preamp output to an amp, then yes you risque hearing strange things.

Looking great. Seats are awesome. Which carpet set have you bought out of interest?

Thanks bud, had a few quotes done for paint as well so as soon as I get rear subframe built up she will be painted which will be a huge step forward!!
Yeah I really like them. passenger side has been sent back though as the Stitching has separated.
It’s a company called kingsman covers. I would say it’s the best middle ground if you don’t want to spend over £200 on a moulded set. (Which I couldn’t justify) and with how well made this is looking to be I’m glad I got this set.
Hope that helps

Yeah, I've seen the Kingsman ones and thought it might be a good middle ground. Nice to see some real photo's of it, thanks. Keep up the good work - not far off now!!

I have the carpet fully in now, will up load a picture complete later this evening.
Now that it’s in I’m really pleased with it so would fully recommend for sure
