Those of you who regularly visit the Obsessive Facebook page will know I have recently flown down to Queenstown and purchased a Honda Beat. The 800KM drive back to Picton was a hoot!
As the little Honda is to be a demo car I obviously have some plans for it, so intend to post how the progress is going. (Having said that I was going update what I have done to the Obsessive Wagon! I will get round to it when I find the time).
The alarm system is already installed. No small feat, it was a huge install and I shall go into the details another time.
Obsessive Car Audio
The factory radio cassette player is actually smaller than DIN (normal size) so I had a challenge on my hands. There was no way I could fit a normal aftermarket system into the Honda without butchering the Dashboard. So after 3 weeks scratching my head and throwing ideas around my mate, Tom suggested that I should look at marine audio. I ended up finding a Fusion radio, which was USB and iPod ready plus was smaller than the normal car stuff.
Here are the finished photos:
Note: This does not mean I am becoming a car stereo specialist. I have no intention of becoming a jack of all trades and a master of none!
This Post is dedicated to the Un-official Honda Beat UK Club member who refuses to get a Facebook account. Happy viewing Steve! Oh and if you’re tempted there are more stereo photos which include the guts of the job on the Obsessive Facebook page!
