Hi! I'd like to introduce myself. I just rolled on in in my mini which I bought 5 days ago. She's a 1989 Mini City E Auto, called Percie. YES IT IS A GIRLS NAME!!! :grin: I used to own a spankin' lovely 1275GT called CLYDE, but had to sell him (I shan't go into why, just know that I wish I hadn't had to part with him). However, I am totally bessotted with Percie. She has a few areas that need attention (don't we all?!) but I am soooo enjoying getting back into Mini motoring. Watch this space, I'll be building a website soon, and I hope to get aquainted with you all.

Hugs people
X. :)

PS I just printed off a copy of that under back seat speaker panel, gonna give it a go 2moro! Thanks for that!

Hey! :grin:

I fitted the speaker thing. Unfortunately, I cut it a little too low, so now there's a slight gap at the top. This is causing the bass to sound naff, but my brother reckons that I should fill the gap with high density foam, that'll stop the air getting from the back to the front of the speakers & distorting them. He also sid that the best bass sound you can get in a Mini (without adding a bass speaker) is in the parcel shelf. He reckons that back in the days of one speaker in the middle of the back shelf (medium wave days you know!), the sound from a shelf mounted speaker in a Mini was better that the sound from a door mounted speaker in a Rolls Royce! All to do with getting a large expance of air behind your speaker, you know!

My brother runs his own I C E business in case you were wondering!

Happy Valentines Day by the way. :) Did you get a card? Extra :) to those of you who, like me, didn't get one! :)
